Can you believe it? All the pics you will see in this post are from one stamp set….and they are rather simple images (so the cards didn’t take long to make). This is a sneak peek for MFT‘s new release Happy Occassions on January 9th (tomorrow). I love how this set has a frame image that ccordinates perfectly with a Marvy Uchida Mega Scalloped Square Punch.
Let’s start with the box. It’s a magnetic closure box by Creative Imaginations that I decorated with KI Memories Colorful Funky Stipe patterned paper and covered with Decoupage. Added some SU! Black Gingham ribbon and tied in a bow. The stamped image is flowers from the Mother’s Day stamp. I added K&Company colored adhesive rhinestones to the centers of the flowers. Hard to see but I also punched 3 circles with my 1″ Circle Punch of the same patterned paper just to add a little touch above the ribbon.
Here is what the box holds:
Now, I will post all the contents for you to see. Did I mention this is all one set???
Valentine’s Day (thursday 2/9/08):
The heart was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Added Crystal Effects and Micro Beads.
St. Patty’s Day (Monday 3/17/08):
For some reason, Photoshop would not let me edit the st. patty’s pics??? I simply applied Crystal Effects to the clover and it is attached with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
Easter (Sunday 3/23/08):
I created the grass by scalloping it and making close tiny cuts. Made the bunny 1/2 in the grass.
Mother’s Day (5/11/08):
The flowers were stamped, cut out, attached with Mini Glue-Dots, and applied Adhesive Rhinestones to the middles.
Father’s Day (6/15/08):
Simply just stamped the ties in different colors, cut out, and adhered.
4th of July:
Used markers to color in the different fireworks. Restamped over with Encore Silver ink. Added Adhesive Rhinestones to the center of the fireworks. Added extra sparkles with Red, gold, and silver gellyroll markers.
Stamped pumpkin, added Crystal Effects to pumpkin face cut-outs, attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Simply stamped the bird with Close to Cocoa ink. Restamped and cut out the leg, and attached with Mini Glue-Dot just to add some dimension.
Just stamped the tree in Old Olive ink, cut out, colored in details of trees with various colors to match paper, added Adhesive Rhinestone as tree-topper, attached.
I made the glass out of Acetate. Bubbles covered with Crystal Effects. Added reflections to Acetate glass with my White uni-ball signo gel pen.
I stamped the cake first in Regal Rose ink. Restamped in Real Red and cut out the icing parts to adhere onto the first Regal Rose inked image. Added Cotton Candy and Orange Peel Stickles.
Now, Hmmmm, who do I send this to???
All I know is that they will have a card handy for every Happy Occassion:)
