The 3D handmade projects & cards category is anything that has dimension. Moving parts can also make a card be considered a 3D creation. Shaker or spinner cards are example of this definition of a 3 dimension item. While not 360° in design, these are not flat either. In addition, there are many items of home decor, treat boxes or bags, gift boxes or bags, and gift card holders. This category contains all items that are 3D from all the other categories, such as birthday, masculine, or Christmas. I love this category because it has so much variety and visual interest.
Stampin’ Up! Wood Words Crate Treat Holder, simple and cute! Great for year round decorating and gifting using the Wood Words bundle!
I love how the color challenges inspire me to think “outside the box” leading to creating “grass” from the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. This crate is very straight forward, I just cut a second panel for the backing. I wanted to do this so I would have a place to hang my text and cute little chicken.
For the chicken I cut one in Real Red cardstock and stamped another in Daffodil Delight. I use the framelits to cut out the images. And then I used the black Stampin’ Write marker to add an eye, and a Red one for the beak. Love!
Stampin’Up! Coffee Cafe Mini treat bag video tutorial
I made this Stampin’Up! Coffee Cafe Mini treat bag video tutorial for my 3D swap for Thailand with Stampin’Up! What an amazing experience! Be sure to check out my CreatingForGrace demo FB page for some photos I shared.
I started with the mini treat framelit bag cut in Early Espresso paper and assembled using the Tear & Tape adhesive. This is stronger and holds together 3D items very well. The white cardstock is cut at 2″ x 4″ and stamped using the Timeless Texture stamp set.
Next stamp the cup and lid and use the Coffee Cafe framelits to cut them out. Add the green mini chevron ribbon and attach the stamped white cardstock. Pop up the coffee cup with dimensionals and attach. Use a glue dot and some linen thread to attach the corrugated elements tag.
Had so much fun making this Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Waterfall Card. Fun bold summer colors in a waterfall card? Yes please! This technique came up in conversation at our last Stamp Club meeting, and I had requests to teach the technique again. Loving the Cool Treats stamp set for this motion card!
Here is the motion picture:
Start with an A2 card base. Some people only use the card front, but I actually like the full card to write in! However it’s nice to know your options!
The Melon Mambo layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″. And the Lemon Lime Twist strip is cut at 1″ x 4.25″. Next the white pull strip is cut at 2 1/4″ x 9″. Score at 2″, 2.75″, 3.5″, and 4.25″. The Melon Mambo mats are 2.25″ square, and the white stamped layers are 2″ square. See the tutorial below for full assembly.
Stampin’Up! Sprinkles of Life Shaker Thank You Card
This Stampin’Up! Sprinkles of Life Shaker Thank You Card is sparkly fun! This was one of the desigs for our monthly ToGo kit!
For this card I started with a whisper white base and then a layer of Succulent DSP cut at 5.25″ x 4″. The popped up shaker layer is cut at 4.75″ x 3″. Emboss this layer with the Petal Burst emboss folder.
The windows use the 2 3/8″ square framelits on the embossed layer and the blushing bride layer ( surround the pink layer with the scalloped frame and cut at the same time.
The window sheet is cut at 3″ square and the stamped tree layer is also cut at 3″ square.
Here’s a view of all the parts, you can see how much is actually pre-done for you! This makes stamping and assembly a breeze! I really love almost all the Stampin’Up! kits and after putting this one together I absolutely love it!!
I don’t do very many kit videos, however, this one allowed me to show some tips and ideas that I wanted to share. Think using a quilling tool for wrapping the center flower strip with ease! Also I show a way to make the small clear treat boxes work with a removable strip of paper instead of being attached directly to the box! On the video I also show alternative stamp sets to use.
And here is the video:
Because this covers all four projects inside the kit the video is a bit longer than I normally like to do. However I wanted to show some tips and alternative ideas that I used 🙂 I love the project kits from Stampin’Up! they are beautiful and make creating so easy!!

Stampin’Up! Hey Chick Twist & Pop Sale A Bration card
I love this Stampin’Up! Hey Chick Twist & Pop Sale A Bration card! I made a couple changes to make the card easier to make for me. Hope this is helpful to someone else too!!
Here is the inside of the Stampin’Up! Hey Chick Twist & Pop Sale A Bration card.
Start with an 8.5″ x 10.75″ piece of cardstock. Score along the short side at 2.25″, 4.25″, and 6.25″. Turn paper 1/4 turn and score along the long side at 3 7/8″, 5 3/8″, and 6 7/8″. Cut away the outside 4 rectangles. Using a bonefolder to hold your center point fold the left arm over at an angle matching up score lines. Do the same on the other arm.
To create the center pop up section start with a 2.75″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. Score at 2.75″, 5.5″, and 8.25″. This creates the four panels. Cut out 4 pieces of cardstock cut at 2.5″ x 2.5″ to create the stamped focal points.
See the video to see how I attached the arms to the pop out center and created the liner for the inside designer series paper.
