Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today's projects was the 3D item we made at my February Workshops--after I got a swap that inspired this at the Minneapolis Regionals Event!


Stamps: Whimsy Jumbo Wheel, Lucky Shamrock, Fresh Cuts (for you)
Paper: Garden Green, Pear Pizzaz, Whisper White
Ink: Garden Green, Old Olive Jumbo Ink Cartridge
Accessories: Petal Cone Die, Sticky Strip, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Punch, 1"
 Circle Punch, Big Shot

I also used this project for my February (to be delivered in March) projects for the Marshfield, Wisconsin, Ronald McDonald House. I volunteer to be the Lead Demonstrator for Stampin' Up! with this house because it was the first house I was acquainted with (growing up in Marshfield) and the Ronald McDonald House Charities mean a lot to me. From staying in a house for a Christmas Vacation and visiting a family living in the Milwaukee House, I realized how special a little treat can be after a long day at the hospital. Since the Marshfield house is so small, we can't really hold events there. Instead, I've set up a system where the group of demonstrators and I volunteer to make 10-20 3D items for the house each month and cards as needed. I have scheduled this time into my calendar to ensure something gets sent every month. You can help me on the third Wednesday of the Month at my house in Shawano making projects, sending a donation of supplies, or sending a monetary donation for us to buy supplies.

Making a difference is what we do!

Want to make one of your own?

First, use a Jumbo Wheel and Handle to add Whimsy Wisps to 5 1/2 by 8 1/2" paper. I try to run my strips at a diagonal to hide my whoopsies. Place paper on top of Petal Cone Die and run through the Big Shot. You should have this:

Next,  add sticky strip to the tab on top of the inked side, so you can fold  the cone shape correctly.
When you close it, it will look like this:
Meanwhile, use the Big Shot and Petal Cone Die to cut two sets of half-circle scallops and one banner from the Petal Cone Die. Pull the flap on the upside down towards you. Use sticky strip to attach one half-circle scallops under this flap and one behind the other flap, which stays flat.


In the pouch is where you can stick a sucker. I found some green labeled ones for Easter that I put inside.

Stamp two Lucky Shamrocks. Use the 1 3/4" Circle Punch to punch one whole image and the 1" Circle punch to punch out the center image. Use dimensonals to layer these on your cone's circle bottom half.


Finally, stamp a message on the banner and place under the fold!

Happy Stamping!
