Seasonal Chums Treat Bag









HAPPY HALLOWEEN...BE SAFE & HAVE FUN!



Hello Hivers, 

I was on Pinterest looking for some ideas for Halloween.  I came across a project by Karen Robinson.  I knew I had to CASE it.  As always, I changed a few things to make the project my own.  I just love the way it turned out.  



As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Spooky Night Popcorn Treat Bag








Hello Hivers, 

Here's a great spooky treat bag.  I found the instructions on Pinterest and now and I can't find them to share.  I used the Spooky Night DSP along with the Spooky Cat stamp set.  I punched out an window with the Starburst Punch and put a Window Sheet in the opening.  I filled the bag with Caramel Apple Popcorn.   I finished decorating with a banner and some Black Shimmer Ribbon.

Spooky Cat Cake Box





Hello Hivers, 

I am sharing another box that I made to hold the cake in a mug pouch.  This would make a great card, as well.  I heat embossed the "Witches Brew" sentiment with White Embossing Powder.  I also colored the background Designer Series Paper with Lemon Lime Twist.  It only shows up on the spots that were origanally Very Vanilla.  I don't have the Cat Punch, so I just hand cut the cat right from the Spooky Night DSP.  I think it all worked out very well.

Festive Phrases - Wine Bottle Tag








Hello Hivers, 


I made this tag to fit over a bottle of wine.  With Christmas quickly approaching, I thought I would get an early start on my gift giving ideas.  I love the mono tone of this Silver and White tag. 

The sentiment from Festive Phrases was heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder.  I cut the Foil Snowflake in half to make it appear larger.

Half Full - Painted Harvest Christmas



Hello Hivers, 

Someone should have told me that the Painted Harvest stamp set is addicting.  I can't seem to stop using it.  I absolutely love it.  This card is a combination of the other projects I shared this week.  I love the silver embossing. And that ribbon....Wow!

Painted Harvest - A Note For You




Hello Hivers, 

When I like something, I tend to make multiples of the same thing, making a few changes so they won't be exactly the same.  Well...here is another set of 3" x 3" note cards.  This time I stamped the image using Dapper Denim and Pacific Point.  The middle of the flower and the leaf image was stamped using Smokey Slate.

The sentiment from the Wood Words stamp set was heat embossed using the Silver Embossing Powder.  I made 8 note cards but only 4 of these note cards fit it the box due to the Stampin' Dimensionals I used under the circles.  So you know what I did...I made a second box.

Painted Harvest - Half Full Christmas





Hello Hivers, 

Okay.  So while I was making the project I shared yesterday, I stamped the sentiment in the wrong place on one of the panels.  Well, it still looks good so I wanted to use it.  I made this card from the 3" x 3" note card front I shared yesterday.  

I looked at card sketches for ideas and this looks nothing like the one I chose to go with.  LoL.  But I think the card turned out FaBuLoUs.

Painted Harvest - 3" x 3" Note Cards




Hello Hivers, 

Aren't these little note cards with matching envelopes the cutest?   The Old Olive and Garden Green are the perfect colors to make this flower into a Christmas wreath.  I stamped all over the Mini Pizza Box before putting it together.   I love the way these turned out.  I was able to fit 8 cards with envelopes in the box.

Lovely Friends SBTD Blog Hop - October 2017






Hello Hivers, 

Welcome to another Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop.  This month our theme is Masculine.  I find this to be one of the hardest things to design.  I decided to use the Lovely Friends stamp set for all my projects today.

I have made three cards and a little box.  

This first card is using the Coffee Break DSP.  I cut out the sentiment using the Lots of Labels framelits and sponged around the edges with Pear Pizzazz.  



This second card was made with a special person in mind.  He offered my family help during Hurricane Irma.  I just wanted to let him know how much his offer meant to me and my family.

I used the Wood Textures DSP Stack along with Colorful Seasons and Seasonal Layers thinlits.  The Burlap ribbon and Copper Trim are two of my favorites right now.  


Here's a look at the inside and the matching envelope.


 

This last project started out as a simple one.  I like to make boxes, so I thought I would design one with the Masculine theme in mind.  I used the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP along with Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon.  Then I thought I should make the "Gift Box in a Card" that I've been seeing so much of on the internet.  





 



Leave a comment and let me know what you think.  

Hop on over to Carly's Blog.  She is up next in the Blog Hop.

Festive Phrases Window Box





Hello Hivers, 

I haven't used the Window Box thinlits in a while.  Here, I paired it with the Year of Cheer SDSP and some of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.  I used Gold Embossing Powder for the sentiment from Festive Phrases. I added some Gold Faceted Gems for a little more sparkle.

The Little Things - Coffee Mug Box




Hello Hivers, 

Last Thursday I shared with you that I was playing around with the Envelope Punch Board, trying to make a box using 12" x 12" cardstock.  Well, this is what I was trying to make, a box to fit this coffee mug I picked up at Dollar Tree.  I seen the cake in a mug mixes and just had to make a gift set to give away. The mug fits perfectly in the box.  I just wished the cake mix came with a little tube of frosting.  LoL.  I decorated using The Little Things stamp set and the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  

I, somehow, figured out that I needed to punch and score at 3.5" and 9.5" on the Envelope Punch Board. I know that I am at the 9.5" mark when the edge of my cardstock is at the "F" on the words Final Result. This makes a rectangular box. The measurements I used for the DSP are 3-7/8" x 4.25" (x2) and 2-7/8" x 3-7/8" (x2).

Wishes All Aglow - Tree







Hello Hivers, 

Another non-traditional Christmas card.  I love that fact that you can color the Year of Cheer SDSP and it will resist the ink on the embossed portions.  Added some elements from the Swirly Snowflakes and Seasonal Layers thinlits.

Paper Pumpkin October 2017 with Video



Hello Hivers, 

OMG!  This months Paper Pumpkin Kit is super cute.  I love shaker cards.  I couldn't wait to open up my kit and get started on the projects.  The coordinating colors for this kit are:  Basic Black, Old Olive, and Pool Party.  The Classic Stampin' Spot is in Cherry Cobbler.  This color combination looks lovely together.  

I can't wait to see what Novembers Kit will be...remember there is going to be some coordination with this months and next months Paper Pumpkin Kits.  I'm so excited.  

Here's a video for you to enjoy.





Here are the two cards I made from the video.

Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape



Hello Hivers, 

 OMG!  I am in love with this card.  I don't usually purchase washi tape because I never really use it.  When I seen this tape I just had to have it.  I used the washi tape to make "DSP" for this card.  I heat embossed the sentiment using Copper Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is from the Festive Phrases stamp set.  The inside sentiment is from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.

The Little Things - Big Box





Hello Hivers, 

I was having a play with the Envelope Punch Board.  I was trying to make a box using 12" x 12" paper.    Well, I did it.  It wasn't easy.  I made three different boxes, using different measurements for all of them.  Now I can't remember which measurements go with which box.  

I think I made this one using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool with the retired Diagonal Plate. Scoring on all sides at 3-1/8" and 8.25".  It turned out nice enough, but it is not what I was going for. 

 I decorated the box using The Little Things stamp set along with some retired Black Glimmer Paper and other embellishments.  I love the Spooky Night DSP.  It works for so many occasions.

Watercolor Christmas with Year of Cheer




Hello Hivers, 

Here is a simple and non-traditonal Christmas card.  I colored the Year of Cheer SDSP with Melon Mambo ink.  I used the Seasonal Layers thinlits to get the scallops on the side. I love the look of the big and small circles together.

Count My Blessings - Thinking of You




Hello Hivers, 

The Count My Blessings stamp set is one of my favorite in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  I have made several cards using this stamp set.  I realized that I had never used the acorn image.  I searched Pinterest for a card sketch and this is what I produced.  I love it.  You can't really see it, but I used Wink of Stella to color the images.

Hello Hivers, 


I seen this card on Pinterest.  I just had to CASE it.

Festive Phrases Gum Ball Box
















Hello Hivers, 


 I made this cute little box to hold some gum balls.  I decorated it with the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.  I added a little window,  so that you could see what's inside the box, using the Hearth & Home thinlits.  The sentiment is from the Festive Phrases stamp set in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

Half Full - White Christmas




Hello Hivers, 

Here is my first creation using the Half Full stamp set.  I love all the sentiments in this set.  

I have paired the stamp set with the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and some Silver Foil paper.  

The inside is the "wow" factor of this card, in my opinion.  You don't expect to open up this card and see all that bright red.  But, I love it.

Christmas Around the World - Chocolate Box







Hello Hivers, 

I love Stampin' Up! products.  They are so versatile.  When I seen the Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper in the 2017 Holiday Catalog...I wasn't to impressed.  After watching videos showing the paper (both sides), I just had to have it.  I don't care for some of the paper in this pack, however, if you turn the sheet over there is a different design and I love it.  

There was no stamping involved in the making of this project.  The sentiment was cut out of one of the sheets of DSP.  Oh, and those Foil Snowflakes are to die for.  They add such a touch of elegance to any project.  I also used the Gold Mini Sequin Trim and the Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon to complete this box.


I found the tutorial for this box on Pinterest, courtesy of Sam Hammond a.k.a. Pootles.












This is the candy that fits inside the box.  You can choose whatever you can find to fit inside.  It is pretty roomy in there.
