Direct to Paper Pillow Box

Matt and I are heading to Alaska tomorrow on the Stampin’ Up Incentive Trip cruise!  This is our 12th trip with SU and continually thankful for my team and faithful customers who helped me earn it each year.  I’ll be posting on my Stamping School Facebook page if I see good ‘stampy’ things I can post:)  We will have a general session one day to see some sneak peeks of the upcoming Holiday catalog, so that will be exciting!

Before I go, I thought I’d share a quick project:

I love that Stampin’ Up is carrying these cute, premade pillow boxes this year in the annual catalog!  I think the Crumb Cake and white dots are versatile but I want more colors:)

Sponging takes a LONG time to get the coverage you need. I chose the Direct to Paper application, where I press the ink pad directly to the pillow box.  In this case, the new Merry Merlot is a perfect color to go with the Waterfront stamp set theme I needed.  Grap a paper towel or napkin before you begin.

(By the way, if you are on my Stamping School,
I showed 2 other videos with a reptile twist! )

It will be dark at first – once you wipe off the excess, it will be perfect!

Rub off the excess ink.  Switch ends and use the paper towel to
hold the inked side of the box down:

Repeat and rub the other side.  It will dry lighter!  Ink lightens when it dries, paint darkens.  Not sure why!

Stampin’ Up Product List

Choose a group of 10 new ink pads from the Brights, Regals or Subtles, Neutrals or In Colors… 10 new ink pads in your choice of color group when you join as a demonstrator (hobby discount shopper or business demo)

What a great time to start up or come back and re-join for a while!

You choose products up to $125 in your kit, pay only $99 and tax, free shipping and during July only, 10 free ink pads. Pretty good! There is also a ‘demo only’ preorder special and that can be added to your kit also – see the bottom of my post for that info)

As a hobby demo you can enjoy the 20% discount and place your own orders (I’ll walk you thru how to do that as your team leader, it’s easy) Here is my link to join:
