Array of Sunshine

Here is the second swap card I created for Convention 2011, I made about 30 of these using the hostess set, Array of Sunshine. You can't quite see it in the photo, but I stamped the flower again on a scrap piece of whisper white, cut the center petals out and popped it up in the middle.
Stamp set: Array of Sunshine and Fabulous Phrases
Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso
Paper: crumb cake, cherry cobbler, pool party and whisper white
Accessories: vintage wallpaper embossing folder, basic rhinestones, dimentionals, scallop square punch, and scallop dots ribbon in cherry cobbler
It is an elegant set and just $8 hostess dollars in clear, $11 in wood. Such a great deal. Here are all of the images in the set. I think this is my favorite hostess set, you will be seeing a lot of it.

How to make SU! Paper Peonies

 Don't you just love the paper peonies on the front of the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog? I do, they are so beautiful and fresh! Here is a quick tutorial on making them. I attached mine to bamboo skewers in the photo, but you can use floral wire as well. If I had some I would have used that.

Step 1: 
Punch 3 scallop circles using the 2-3/8" scallop circle punch.

Step 2:
Spray the circles very lightly with water to soften them. Scrunch them up into balls and work them until they are mostly dry. If they are too wet they can tear in the next step, trust me I know ;)

Step 3
Unfold them carefully and find an edge where you can easily pull them apart. You will end up with six scallop circles all together.

Step 4
Lay all of your circles one on top of the other and secure them with a brad. I chose to layer them fuzzy side up.

Step 5
Pull the layers one at a time up into the center.

Step 6
Fluff your flower into the peony shape.

3 x 3 Note Card box

Here is a look at the new color Pool Party In Color for 2011-2013. I made this cute little box to hold some 3x3 notecards. The stamped flower you see on the front of the box is a new Hostess stamp set available this year. Below you will find the complete tutorial on this cute little number.

This year the hostess program has changed, in the past hostesses were able to pick a level stamp set and had additional hostess dollars to spend. This year hostesses are only given Hostess Dollars which they can use to purchase Hostess only sets at a deep discount or to use on catalog merchandise of their choice. In addition when a hostess reaches just $400 in orders she can choose an item in the catalog at 50% off! I am really excited about this new Hostess Program it is much more versatile.

Here is the tutorial on the card box above, it is so simple and a cute gift. The box is my own design and just a basic box template.

You need a piece of cardstock 6-1/2" x 7-1/2" scored all around at 2-1/4". You then cut along the score lines from the outside in. I cut in on the 7-1/2" side.

Next, fold the flaps in and glue them to the inside, creating the box. I use the Tombow liquid glue because it holds the best for me.

Decorate your box as desired. The cards I saw somewhere and thought they were so cute. I can't however find where I saw them to give proper credit. If it's your original design let me know :) **edited to add** Apparently I saw it in the IB&C page 158.
