Curvy Keepsake Cuties …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Thought we’d have a little fun today seeing some fun and creative ways to use your Mini Curvy Keepsake die …

Let’s start are weekend with a little sparkle!!  These cute little treat keepers are so quick -n- easy to make and you can use any of our four glimmer papers, and don’t stop there … you can also use the beautiful foils we have too.

Another quick -n- easy way to create cute holiday treat boxes is using some of the beautiful designs in our Designer Series papers. We have many beautiful holiday papers right now …

This designer paper has retired but I find it’s a great way to use up my papers and put a smile on anyone’s face!  Who wouldn’t love getting such a cute little gift …

 

If you missed my latest creation with the Monster Bash Designer Series paper … These little cuties are to die for (well, not literally) your trick or treaters, co-workers or friends will be thrilled.

 

 

Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies 150644

Last but not least is a real treat keeper designed for the biggest gift giving time … Christmas.  Can I get a little “Ho … Ho… Ho”  Simple to create with just a few punches, my Santa Curvy Keepsake will even fit in the stocking.  Making it with cardstock, makes it a little more durable.

These would be so cute on the fireplace mantle … on a co-workers desk, where ever Santa would leave a little treat.  A nice chocolate truffle fits perfectly in the Mini Curvy Keepsake box!

Have fun creating these quick -n- easy little treat boxes for every occasion … they make perfect little gifts around the table for baby showers, brides maids, Thanksgiving … you get the picture.  I have a list of supplies below that I used to create these cuties.

Thank you for joining me this “rainy” Friday … just glad it’s not snow!

Trick or Treaters Delights …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I always love to create special little packaging for my trick or treaters … I don’t get many where I live now so it’s mainly my grandkids!  This year I will create a custom die-cut keepsakes box in record time using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Dies.  You’d be surprised what can fit into these cute mini boxes.  I cut my boxes out with the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper.  This designer paper  provides a fresh take on favorite Halloween characters and themes.

I was thrilled to see that the set of dies included tags … so I used two of them and teamed it up with the “To Every Season” stamp set.  To every season . . . there is a time for bats, a time for snow, and a time for love. Combine the greetings and images from the To Every Season Stamp Set for tags, treat packaging, or whatever is in season.  I paired it perfectly with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Dies … these are two tools in my stamping arsenal that will be used all year long.

No craft stash is complete without the essential black ink pad… the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. You’ll love the coverage this ink gives, and that is why I not only used it in todays tags but in all my projects using the Stampin’ Blends.

he silly ties are from the on my tags are from the Black Scallop Ribbon … on the bat container I cut the edge off the ribbon to attach it and for the one with the spider webs, I actually pulled the rest of the ribbon apart and tied on the shreds!! Like that it looks like spider webs!! lol

Your trick or treaters are going to fall in love with these cute little boxes and you’ll love that they’ll be done quicker than it takes to make a witches brew!

Thank you for hanging out with me today. Enjoy your day.

Hauntingly Cute Hand Sanitizer Gift Box

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you had a nice weekend and got a chance to check out the Halloween projects I shared yesterday … a card and a treat box! For some, Halloween is all about the candy, for others, they like to hand out practical gifts.  What would you think about creating something that makes those “practical” gifts more fun?  I have a cute little wrap for hand sanitizers that is quick -n- easy to make.

Let’s begin with the outer wrap.  Start with an 11″ x 3″ piece of cardstock.  Score the cardstock at 4-7/8″ and 6-1/8″ … these measurements will ensure the insert sits nicely in the wrap.  Then punch both ends, this will be used to for your ribbon and to close the top.

Attach a piece of 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ of designer paper… I used Monster Bash. We finished off the top edge of the designer paper by attaching a piece of ribbon over it and trimming off the edges.

Stamp your greeting and cut out with a favorite die or punch.  I used the coordinating die from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle and pop it up with the new black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Set your outer wrap aside for now … it’s time to create your inner (inset) piece.  Cardstock should measure 4-1/2 x 2-7/8″ … score at 1″ – 2″ – 3″ and 4″.  Using the smallest of the scallop ovals, place it between the the two score lines closest to the 1/2″ flap. (See photo below).

Once the whole is cut out, you will need to glue the 1/2″ flap to the opposite side to create a box.  The hole needs to be facing up … add glue to the bottom (opposite side with the hole) and set it into the outer wrap between the score lines.  Now you can tuck your Hand Sanitizer into the scallop oval hole.  The Bath & Body Works small hand sanitizers fit perfectly into the oval.

This would make a cute teachers gift, thank you gifts, get well ? Any reason … flu season is coming and why not be prepared and be the cool mom on the block!  This is also a great way to use up some of that designer paper you’ve been hording … lol.

Have some fun creating these cute Halloween gifts for your ghoul friends and then make some more for just for the fun of it … Christmas is coming too!

Thanks so much for joining me today … Let me know if you liked this project, I’d love to hear what you think … just message below.

I also have a supply list below to make your shopping easy, just click on any image for more information or to begin shopping with me.

Just a reminder … Today is the last day of the Buy 3 / Get 1 FREE Designer Papers …

Simply Sunday: Dancin’ in the Moonlight

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

And a happy Sunday to you! Are you ready for some fun today? I’ve got a playful combination of products to share with you today… the Monster Bash product suite and the September 2019 Paper Pumpkin: Bone Appétit.

Let’s begin with the Coffin Boxes … such a fun way to share a special treat with your trick or treaters this year. I used the beautiful scroll design from our Monster Bash designer paper,  Now grab your sponge dauber and your Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie ink pads.  I sponged on these colors to create a candy corn look directly onto my designer paper.  Little Wink of Stella to give it some shimmer.

Next I  pulled out my Bone Appétit Paper Pumpkin and adhered the vellum circle onto my lid. I took the new BLACK (I just love them) Stampin’ Dimensionals and used it to pop up my skeleton web … not only does it pop up but it give you the “dark sockets” in the skull! A bit creepy!

I added a little greeting direct from the Paper Pumpkin kit and the enamel embellishments are from our Monster Bash Suite. Then I thought it would be cute to give the recipient of this crafty little gift a “hand” … lol

With the same supplies and sponging technique, I created a coordinating card …

I just love these little skeletons and thought it would be cute to have them dancin’ across the card. These little guys are die cut images, as is the tag.  Did you know that if you subscribe for the October kit … you could then purchase this kit too!!  Past kits are available to purchase when you are a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber!

The holiday season will be here before we know it. And along with putting up the Christmas tree and spending snowy nights by the fire, many of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers will be looking forward to opening their holiday kit. Christmastime papercrafting with Paper Pumpkin has become an annual tradition!

Let’s take one last peek at our Halloween themed Paper Pumpkin and Monster Bash combination … I had a blast making these, and I’m sure my grandkids are going to love them!

Thank you for sharing a part of your Sunday with me. Hope you enjoyed my projects.

Have a wonderful day ~

Monster Bash Double Z-Fold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So glad we’re such ghoul friends … that is our frightfully fun greeting on todays Halloween card which highlights the Spooktacular Bash Bundle. I’ve also showcased three (3) patterns from our Monster Bash Designer Series paper and in a fun Double Z-Fold card …

I started with a Paper Pumpkin base which coordinates perfectly with our designer paper.  The first pattern has all our ghoul friends featured on it and is attached to the first panel of our card.  The second pattern is a pair of our ghoul friends which were fussy cut and attached to front band of the “Z” which our greeting was stamped with the Spooktacular Stamp Set.

Inside our card you will find the creepy “Spider Web” pattern … with the “Double Z-Fold” card you get a sneak peek of this pattern because of the unique way it is folded. You will also find our eerie apothecary jars filled with ghoulish delights! Colored with our Stampin’ Blends and magically dazzled with a touch of our Wink of Stella.  The ingredients in the jar are a bit “bone-chilling” if I do say so myself!

This product suite is so fun to work with and a great addition to your Halloween decorating arsenal.  You will be seeing even more samples so stay tuned!

Have a frightfully fun Friday and thanks so much for your visit to my blog today.

W-Fold Card: Open If You Dare …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared the “To Every Season” Bundle with you, today I’m pairing it with the “Spooktacular Bash” Bundle and delivering it to you on a spooky little card featuring the W-Fold!!  Are you ready??  Open if you dare ….

The background is Gorgeous Grape and stamped with Gorgeous Grape using both the “To Every Season” and “Spooktacular Bash” stamp sets, which is then layered over Pumpkin Pie over a Basic Black base.

The coffin was cut from a template I made from the cute little Coffin Treat Boxes also found in the Monster Bash product suite. I embossed it with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder and with a light dragging of the Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink Pad across the raised image you create some added dimension and sparkle!

The greeting is from the Spooktacular Bash bundle and die cut with the coordinating (and layering) dies… and lets not forget about those cute little bats which were punched from the To Every Season punch pack .  Notice the sparkle … you guessed it, Wink of Stella!!

NOW IT’S TIME TO OPEN …

The “W-Fold” is created to POP out your images! This is the fold that our September Club members learned this month. Can you tell that the center 2 images are popping right out of your card? Keep opening ….

I tucked some fun little creatures inside the card to wish you a Happy Halloween! We layered the inside the same as the outside of the card, but instead of stamping on the grape … we embossed it just like we did to the coffin lid!

Now it’s fully open so you can see how nicely the card lays down. and a better look at our stamped images.  The were all colored in the grape and then Wink of Stella was added over them.  The inside band is what makes the W and our images pop.

I love that I can use the “To Every Season” Bundle with the “Spooktacular Bash” Bundle and then take it onto the next holiday! I’m all about purchasing products that I can use throughout the year … maximizing my money!! If you have to have the products you saw today … just click on the images below and it will take you to my on-line store.

Stop back tomorrow and I will show you how I take both of these bundles onto the next holiday!!

Thank you for checking out my blog … have a wonderful day!!
