The Stamp Review Crew features Sprinkles of Life

It’s an exciting day! A few weeks ago I woke to a lovely email inviting me to join The Stamp Review Crew blog hop design team. What an honour. Of course I said yes. So without further ado, here is my very first post for The Stamp Review Crew.

Sprinkles-of-Life-bannerThis blog hop features Sprinkles of Life, this year’s charity stamp set. For every set purchased, Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities. How fab. I know I’ve raved about the versatility of the set before, but honestly, nothing comes close especially when you throw in the coordinating Tree Builder punch!

I’ve gone with the cupcake theme for my project and have made a little box with a cupcake on the front. Perfect for giving a birthday cupcake or filling with something else.

The box is made from Sweet L’il Things DSP using the Baker’s Box thinlits – my new ‘go to’ tool for cute little boxes. I then used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set to make the cupcake wrapper (base) and gave it a 3D effect by leaving some tabs on the side and adhering them to the box so that the wrapper itseld would be curved. I also made a sweet flag using a stamp from the set and adhering it to a toothpick.

The honeycomb style cupcake top is made from Cherry on Top Cotton Paper (Watermelon Wonder sheet). I punched out nine x ‘tops’ (it’s a good idea to use some scraps of paper behind the cotton paper as you punch) and then systematically adhered them with 1/4 of a mini glue dot. Yep – even the mini ones are too big. You can find a link to the honeycomb tutorial via this post.

The Baker’s Box thinlits come with various extras for closing the top of the box but today I’ve opted for a Mini Metallic silver peg, silver ribbon, silver thread and the crazy silver swirly stuff from the silver baker’s twine. Yes, I did use my entire arsenal of silver trims!

Sneaky Sprinkles & Catty CASEing

Happy (almost) New Catalogue! At CASEing the Catty this week, we’re counting down until the official release of the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue by giving you a sneak peek of some of our new favourite products.

I’ve used the stamp set which I predict will be the biggest seller this year. Big call? Maybe, but this set is special. The set is called Sprinkles of Life and is this year’s Ronald McDonald House Charities set. Each year, Stampin’ Up! donates $3 from the purchase of a particular stamp set to RMHC. Sprinkles of Life is THE most versatile stamp set ever. Plus there’s also a coordinating punch to make things even easier.

Here are some of the samples I’ve made so far. And I’ve only stopped because I need to get this blog post up but I could keep going for days. There are that many possibilities. So enjoy!
