Paper Crafting Blog Hop -Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper


I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator’s Blog Hop featuring Gift Packaging projects. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide range of fun projects to share with you. You may have arrived from Katie Johnson’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I wanted to use the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, even though we don’t have frosty or snowy Christmases in Australia, because I just love this paper. I decided to use the silver-foiled side and I wanted to make a treat sized gift package. This is small enough to hang on the Christmas tree but will hold a good number of treats or small gifts, or even cash.

I found a design I liked on Youtube by Crafty Caroline. Here is the link.

I punched a hole through the top tabs and threaded some of the stunning Seaside Spray Ribbon through. I added a simple tag and some some Rhinestones.


Supplies used:

Card: – Night of Navy, Seaside Spray, Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper

Ink : – Night of Navy Marker

Tools: – Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Paper Snips

Embellishments: – Seaside Spray 6.4mm Metallic Ribbon, Basic Jewel Rhinestones, Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

80th Birthday Card

Hi Stampers

Welcome back to my blog. I have something a little special to share with you today. A friend’s husband turns 80 next weekend and I wanted to make an explosion box card for him.

When the Classic Garage Suite appeared in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, I knew that I would be using the stamps and dies for his card as he is an avid car buff.

This is how the card/box looks unopened. As well as the Geared Up Garage stamp set, I have used greetings from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set and the retired Perfect Pairings set.


I used four colours for the car after researching the original colours of the car. Above is the Mango Melody and below is the Granny Green Apple. The car on the lid is Poppy Parade. I used other elements in the Stamp Set and coordinating Die Set on alternate panels.


This is how the card looks when it is opened. Another Poppy Parade Car and a Pineapple Punch one. I also added an 80 cut from Gold Glimmer Paper using the (sadly) retired Large Numbers Framelits Die Set.


Here is another Shot with the lid in the centre of the open card.
