Stampin' Friends Blog Hop - Babies!



Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop!


This month’s theme is Congrats, Grads, Brides & Babies! If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from Barbara Welch's blog. Be sure to read through my blog, comment below and continue to Rachel Rife's blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each Blog. 


Now for my projects, this month I choose to focus on babies.  I've been meaning to try my hand at making a teepee which I had found on Pinterest quite some time ago.  And what a better way to do this, than to make it as a party favor for a baby shower!


Here are my projects:




I used Stampin' Up!'s stamp set A Little Wild, aren't these just the cutest!  The following is the recipes and some instructions of how they came together.


 


GREETING CARD

SUPPLIES

Stamp Set: A Little Wild
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Seafoam, and Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper
Ink/Coloring Medium: Momento Black, Crushed Curry and colored pencils
Accessories: Little Loves Framelits, Circles Collection Framelits and Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Card base is 11" x 8 1/2" Soft Seafoam card stock.
  2. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White card stock, 4 1/8"x5 3/8".  I then used the circle framelit sized 3 5/8" and die cut out 3/4 of the circle towards the right hand side.  This then gets passed through the Big Shot with the Pinewood 3D Embossing folder.
  3. Cut a piece of the Twinkle Twinkle DSP to cover up the circle I cut.
  4. On a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock I stamped the bear (both front and back), bee hive and some flowers.  I colored them in with pencils and die cut them out to decorate the circle.
  5. On a piece of 7/8"x2 1/2" Whisper White card stock, I stamped the words and some bees.  To give is some contrast, I sponged the edges with Crushed Curry Ink.
  6. Also, I used snail for everything except the words and the bear, they are attached with dimensionals.
Now how could I make a card with the "A Little Wild" stamp set and not use both sides.  So, as you can see in the photo, I mimicked the outside of the card on the inside of the card, so I could put the "butt" view of the bear.  That will be quite a surprise for the person receiving this card, don't you think.




For my other project other than a card, I tried my hand at a cute teepee that can be used as a party favor for a baby shower or a first birthday!



TEEPEE FAVOR BOX

SUPPLIES

Stamp Set: A Little Wild
Paper: Grey Granite, Whisper White and Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper
Ink/Coloring Medium: Momento Black and colored pencils
Accessories: Little Loves Framelits, Pyramid Pals Thinlits and large toothpicks

INSTRUCTIONS

    1. I die cut out two pieces of the Pyramid Pals out of Twinkle, Twinkle DSP to create the pyramid box.  
    2. Before assembling, I did the following...
    3. I trimmed the point at the top of the pyramid so that the tooth picks had enough space to stick out the top.
    4. On one of the triangles I cut a slit about an inch from the top all the way to the bottom. And I also cut the bottom to the corners so that I could fold back the pieces to make the opening.  I lined the opening with a piece of Grey Granite card stock.
    5. I then glued the toothpicks at each angle of the triangle.  
    6. Lastly, I glued it all together to make the triangle box.
    7. To decorate the teepee, I stamped one bear and a bee hive and snailed it to front of the teepee in front of the entrance.
    If you are going to fill these with candy, I would use repositionable tape to glue the back panel, opposite the door of the teepee.
