Hi!  Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop!! If this is your first time here, we’re a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  The Stamping Sunday Blog Hop happens the second and fourth Sunday of the month.  And each hop in addition to our regular team of awesomeness, we invite guest hoppers to join in the creative fun!!  Our guest hoppers today are Amy Koenders and Jessie Holton – thanks for joining us! This week we’re previewing the Wood Textures Suite.  I know you’re going to love the variety of creations we have in store for you today!

Wood Textures Suite – Wood Words and Wood Crate

I’ve created for two different occasions.

Wood Crate for Stamping Sunday - Wedding Favor - from

The first occasion is a wedding or bridal shower.

Crates seem to be everywhere right now!

And as I was playing this week, I came across this gorgeous wedding

photo montage and had an aha moment.

I used the Wood Crate Framelits to cut Smoky Slate cardstock.

Then I used the Harwood stamp inked inVersamark before embossing in White.

After assembling the crate (super easy!), I made a little lid.

Next, I made little tea roses in Powder Pink and Very Vanilla (again super easy).

Finally, I accented the flowers with Vellum cut with one of the Succulent Framelits.

It gave some of that light airy feel.

Now, it just needs a little goodie inside and it’s ready for a wedding or shower.

My second Wood Textures Suite creation could

be for Father’s Day or Graduation.

For my gift card holder, I started with a Dapper Denim card base.

Then, I added a belly band cut from Wood Textures designer paper.

Next, I added three Crushed Curry stars cut with the Wood Crate Framelits.

And finally, I added a tag cut with the framelits and stamped with a sentiment from Wood Words.

The tag is tied on with several loops of Linen Thread.

I used half of a Wood Crate to create a gift card holder.

It easily holds to gift cards — so splurge on your dad or graduate!

    I love the crate and roses, Sara. Is the how to for roses here on your site. I’ve had little flowers on the brain for several weeks but couldn’t find a pattern. Been sick again — new med regime tomorow.

      Thank you Patti! I actually thought of you after posting this. I’m taping a short video on the roses tomorrow and will post it on Wednesday.

    I knew there had to be a use for the slats in the wood crate die! Brilliant to use it as a gift card holder. I love to see alternative uses like that! And your crate with the flower toppers is beautiful. I love the grey! Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us!

      Thanks Kelly! I think that’s one of the things that I enjoy about creating wedding invitations, favors, etc. for customers — I get to do some of the wedding things!

    Sara, I love your wedding creation with the crate and the roses! So very pretty—is there a tutorial somewhere for these roses?

    I also really love the idea of using part of the crate to hold gift cards—genius!
