Crane of Fortune

A Thousand Well Wishes

My favorite Designer Series Paper from the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog is the Symbols of Fortune DSP. I love the soft colors and the foil accents. I have been wanting to pair it with the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper which is also part of the Symbols of Fortune Suite Collection.

The first thing I did was to cut the Symbols of Fortune DSP, then the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper to layer beneath the DSP. Once I adhered the layers together, I arranged the together until I was happy with the look before I added them to the cardbase.

I attached the larger rectangle layer with the Soft Succulent Crane Pattern to the Smoky Slate Cardbase first, then added the smaller rectangle with the reeds next. Before adding the Square with the Foil Accent I added a few strips of Tear & Tape and added a piece of the Soft Succulent Shimmer Ribbon. Once the ribbon was added I adhered the square layer to my card. I wanted the ribbon to lay across the front of my card, to hold it in place I added a small piece of Tear & Tape to hold it in place.

Using the Crane of Fortune Bundle, I stamped a few of the dragon flies in Calypso Coral on a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut them. I used the Tasteful Labels dies to cut the circle label, and stamped the sentiment in Soft Succulent. I adhered the dragon files to the label with some Mini Glue dots.

I added the label to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish off my card I added a few Polished Dots. I love all the soft colors in this card. I hope you do too!

Crane of Fortune – A Thousand Well Wishes

I have a simple stamping card for you today. I used the Crane of Fortune Stamp Set and Symbols of Fortune DSP from the Symbols of Fortune Suite Collection for my card today. This collections is perfect for quickly creating simple and pretty cards.

I started with a Crumb Cake cardbase. Then I cut a piece of the Symbols of Fortune DSP to 4″x5-1/4″. I added a bit of Tear & Tape on the back side of the DSP to adhere a piece of Soft Succulent Satin Shimmer Ribbon. Then adhered it to my cardbase.

To create the label, I stamped the sentiment from the Crane of Fortune Stamp set in Calypso Coral on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock. Using the Label Me Lovely Punch, I punched the label so that the sentiment is close to the bottom of the label. Then, attaching a scrap piece of cardstock to the back of the label, I put it back in the punch to crop it a bit closer to the sentiment from the top, as you can see in the picture above.

Before adding the label to the card, I punched a second label from Calypso Coral cardstock. I cut it in half and adhered it to the Basic White label. Then I added it to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To my surprise the label fit nicely over the ribbon. For the final touch I added a few Polished Dots.

Symbols of Fortune Mini Paper Pumpkin Box

I love decorating the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. I used the Symbols of Fortune Suite Collection to decorate my box today. Wouldn’t this be a great gift box if you were going to gift some scratch off tickets?


To decorate the box like I did, you will need to cut the following:

  • DSP
    • (1) 3-5/8″ x 5-3/8″, for the top of the box
    • (2) 7/8″ x 5-3/8″, for the front and back edges of the box
    • (2) 7/8″ x 3-3/8″, for the Left and Right edges of the box
  • Vellum
    • (1) 3-1/4″ x 5″

For reference the picture shows where each of the pieces of DSP go on the box. This is from the Tidings & Trimmings box I decorated for Christmas. Click here to see that post.


Here are the pieces of Symbol of Fortune DSP I adhered to my box with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The label is from the Pretty Pillow Box dies. the sentiment is from the Crane of Fortune Bundle, stamped in Mint Macaron on Basic White cardstock. I cut a second label in Mint Macaron, cut it in half and layered it on the back side of the Basic White label.

The foliage is die cut with the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper. I attached it to the back of the label with Mini Glue Dots.

I love the shimmer of the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper. Its near impossible to see in the photo but if you love a bit of sparkle, this is the paper for you.

The crane is stamped in Smoky Slate on Basic White cardstock. Before I stamped the crane, I used a Blender Pen to remove the Smoky Slate ink from the “crown” of the crane, then used a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker to ink it up.

Next, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the label and crane to the Vellum. Then, attaching some Tear & Tape on the back of the Vellum so it can’t be seen, I attached the Vellum to the top of the Paper Pumpkin box. Finally I added a few of the Polished Dots.
