  • Soft Succulent = 4 1/8" x 3 1/4"
  • 3rd DSP = 4-1/8" x 1/4" (Cut 2); 4-1/4" x 1/2"
  •  Basic White Scrap for Sentiment
1. Score as listed above. Do not fold. Just adhere the DSP as shown on the front base.

 G Gorgeous Grape, Basic White, or Highland Heather scraps to cut out the scalloped tag with Color and Contour Dies.

Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop April Teacher Appreciation School Bus


 

Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group’s 2021 Blog Hop! We are excited to share projects with you this year; we hope to inspire you to create beautiful new projects. Each month we will have a different theme based on the next month’s celebrations using Stampin’ Up! products.

Once you are done with each post, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of Blog Hop participants; you can click on their name to go to their post, or you can click the next button to go to the next post in line. Happy crafting! This month’s theme is Teacher Appreciation. My project is a school bus that holds treats or a gift card.

This cute little bus is transformed from an ice cream truck that I made for a class. Here it is.
I just used different paper to create the bus, but I did use the same directions, inspired by Mary Eastridge at Mary's House of Cards.

 Here are the directions using Bumblebee cardstock:


  • You need 3 pieces of card stock – 2 @ 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and one at 2 1/2 X 3 1/2
  • 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 – On the long side score at 3 and 5 1/2 turn and on the short side score at 3
  • 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 – On the long side score at 1 1/2, 3, 7 turn and on the short side score 1 1/2 and 4
  • 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 – score 1/2 all the way around.
  • 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 – cut out the corners, angle the ends of the tabs, burnish score lines
  • The 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 piece that is scored a little off centered, with the 2 1/2 section facing you, cut on the score lines on the short end just to the first intersecting line. Do both ends. Then with the 2 1/2 section still facing you, cut from the bottom left corner of the middle block on score line up at an angle. I usually measure to get a more even cut. See tutorial for clarification. Burnish all score lines
  • The remaining piece, on the long sides, cut on each score mark to the first intersection. Please watch the video for step-by-step directions.
  • Video for Ice Cream Truck 
  • You can decorate the truck as you desire. I used the  retiring Apple Building Punch and the Harvest Hellos Cling Stamps. The light paper is from the Hydrangea Hill DSP. The sentiment was cut using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

In the picture, the back flap is just pushed in. The back of the bus will  open to fill with treats or gift card for that special teacher.

Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop April Hand-Penned Meets Color and Contour Thank You Card


 Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! 

We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

 


This colorful card uses several products from the new catalog, one of which is the gorgeous Hand-Penned DSP. The sentiment label is cut from Color and Contour Die set. The simple flower is stamped with Memento and colored with Simply Succulent and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends. I did try Mango Melody for my first flowers, but did not like it. Even though I used Bumble Bee cardstock, Mango Melody is too dark. I embellished the card with Bumble Bee Ribbon and the carrying-over Blue Backed Adhesive Gems. Peeking through from the inside is the sentiment from Color and Contour, also.


This thank you card will be given to  anyone ordering $50 or more from my online store. I can't help but want to show off these beautiful crafting materials!

I used a variety of  green trees to represent the trees on a mountainside. The sentiment is from the Beautiful World Cling Stamps in Memento Black Ink.
