Happy Hump Day! Wednesday’s means Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up! There are some great products in there this week – Baker’s Twine is fabulous in any colour! However, given that packaging is my favourite thing in the world, it’s great that both the Gift Box Punch Board and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits are both in there this week – hurrah!
I’ve a project with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies for you today, but it won’t be what you’re expecting:
Not a bag, but a card. The thinlits set come with all these great extra dies in there – for decorating the bag with, but why limit yourself? Use them on your cards too!
I cut strips of Pool Party card the same size as the star strip die and die cut them. Then I die cut lots of stars from scraps of co-ordinating card. I added a length of Stampin’ Dimensional to the back of the Pool Party strip (the left over edges are perfect for this) and then popped the coloured stars into the spaces. Once I was happy, I could just use the Dimensionals to stick the completed strips to my card front. A colourful sentiment finishes it off (this stamp set is retired, but many other SU! sets have sentiments which would work great in here).
Here are all of this week’s deals:
Thanks for stopping by today,
