Acetate Card Boxes, Halloween Treat Containers, Stampin' UP!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Halloween Blog Hop! You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or may have come from the person previous to me in the list.
If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. 

It's hard to think of Halloween without thinking of Halloween Treats! And the new Acetate Card Boxes from Stampin' UP! are more than just for cards! I spied others using the TREAT TUBES in the boxes and my friend Tracy Bradly showed how she filled with Reese's Cups. Loved them both and I had to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) to bring to you and my local customers!


 For the mini Reese Cup box - fill with ~15 pieces. Stamp sentiment from Labels of Love  and punch out with Everyday Label Punch. Use the 2-1/4" Circle and Starburst punches to make tag. Wrap with ribbon and add tag with baker's twine.

DSCN6470For this treat box - Fill 8 Treat Tubes with candy pieces. Insert into acetate Box. Cut a 2 x 12 strip of Spooky Nights Designer Paper. NOTE it will NOT meet. But that's okay - your sentiment will cover the gap! Use Layer Ovals Framelits with Spooky Cat stamp set to make your sentiment embellishment.

Starting TOMORROW! I will have projects all week from Saturday's Stamp-A-Palooza 2017! Please stop by tomorrow for a week of Palooza!

Now onto the next hopper!

Fall-ing In Love



Welcome to the blog hop!

Hi Everyone! My fall inspiration came from my nephew's upcoming fall wedding. I have been thinking about them a lot lately, and wanted to make them a card prior to the wedding.

I've been wanting to make a raised letter card and LOVE how easy it is to make this interesting look.

Steps to make:

  1. Stamp your card font. I used Gourd Goodness and Painted Harvest stamp sets. I stamped the pumpkins from Gourd Goodness then masked them off as shown. Then stamped Painted Harvest stamps around the mask.


  Here's with the mask removed. Add Wink of Stella.DSCN6459

2. Next, position your letters from Large Letters Framelits and die cut with the Big Shot.

DSCN6460 DSCN64613. Using paper scraps, die cut 4 sets of letters. The scraps should be in the card layer color or color family of tones in card.


 4. Using Multi-purpose Glue, glue all 5 layers of the letters. (4 scraps and the stamped top letter).

5. Assemble card saving the layered letter inserts until last - layer in the negative space where the original letter was die cut.

6. Stamp inside of card. Sentiment from Cheers to the Year.
