Blended Bloom Pin #2

I wanted to say that I am sorry. It has been a while since I have shared anything on here. I have had some changes going on in my life due to getting a new job and also having a third grandson born. Both of these things are for the good. I will try very hard to not leave so much time go by for now on.
If you follow me, you will remember that I said I would probably share more pins that can be made using the Blended Bloom Stamp Set. The one I am sharing with you today is made with Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Up Blendabilities.

 I had someone ask me if the Crystal Effects changes the color of the Stampin' Blendabilities. I can honestly say that with the Melon Mambo Blendabilities I did not notice any change in the color. With this set though, I did notice it did affect the color. With that said, I still think it turned out pretty good. If you play around with other colors you may notice some change, too.

I like to share two different views sometimes so you can see the layering, as well as what it looks like from the front.
Stampin' Up! Supplies needed to create this pin.
Stamp Set: Blended Bloom
Stampin' Blendabilities: Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight
Tools: Paper Snips and Crystal Effects
Accessories: Antique Brads

If you have a minute, please leave a comment telling me what you think. I would love to hear from you. If you have any questions you can ask that too.
Now go-n-stamp!!

Maritime Curvy Keepsake Box

When I seen the new Curvy Keepsake Box in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, I knew it was something I wanted to order. I tend to like to purchase the box makers because they are great for little gifts and favors for weddings, showers, and birthdays. You just never know what you will one day be asked to make for someone or you may need it for something personal, for instance, your own daughter is having a shower

This little box is very easy to make. The one you see I created has no stamping in it at all. The images I used are from the Maritime Designer Series Paper. I just cut the whale out using Paper Snips. The tags come with the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies. I just used sections of the Maritime DSP for those and then used cardstock to compliment each one.

Stampin' Up! supplies:
Cardstock: Coastal Cabana, Real Red, and Night of Navy
Tools: Paper Snipe, Big Shot, and Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies
Accessory: Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine

I think this would be really cute to use as favors for a little boys birthday party. Thank you for checking out my blog. Please, be inspired to create one yourself.
Now go-n-stamp!!
