Nature’s Peace Tiny Box

HolidayCardHopWelcomeCan you believe it…it’s the end of Week 2 of Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Card “Create”tions and time for our Saturday Blog Hop.  This week the team will be using the new Tiny Box along with the stamp set we used for our card set for our subscribers!  This week it was all about Christmas so if you are look for some good Christmas card ideas…it’s not too late to subscribe!

If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Natasha Zandbergen’ blog Inking Out of the Box.  Isn’t it fun seeing all of the take out boxes?  I know I’m getting some GREAT ideas!

Wk2TinyBoxes1So this week my card set used the Nature’s Peace set.  If you are familiar with that set you know that there is one big image in there and a couple tiny ones.  Well obviously the large image was NOT going to work for the Tiny Boxes so I had to improvise with the small images.

I decided to use 4 of the boxes and stack them.  I picked two of the prints from the Trim the Tree dsp Paper Stack.  I started with Cherry Cobbler and Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 (2 of each).  Then the dsp is 1 5/8 x 1 5/8.  I used the 3/4″ circle punch for the ‘notch’.  Next I stamped the snowflake with Cherry Cobbler and Crisp Cantaloupe and cut out with the Circle Framelit.  They are layered on Cherry Cobbler and Crisp Cantaloupe 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle and add using dimensionals.  I added a sequin in center of each.

I wrapped the Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the boxes and tied into a bow.  The greeting is stamped using Garden Green on Whisper White 5/8 x 3 1/2 and the Crisp Cantaloupe is 5/8 x 3 1/4.  I layered this, punch a 1/8″ hole in it and attached to the bow with a double thickness of the Cherry Cobbler/White Baker’s Twine.

Well…enough about ‘Tiny Box’…time to head over to Melissa Davies at Rubberfunatics and see her ‘Tiny Box’.

For All Things

SUO105Oh…it’s time for another SUO challenge and this time our theme is embellishments.  I’m also doing this for The Paper Players Happy Fall Y’ All challenge.

I do love Fall…I love the colors  of fall! When trying to decide what to do for the SUO challenge I thought about using the Little Letters framelits to cut out the word Fall and then decorating it from there.

Here’s the details -

  • Tangelo Twist – 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 folded
  • Kraft – 3 5/8 x 3 5/8.  Cut out FALL using Little Letters framelits then add a piece of the candy corn dsp (Motley Monsters dsp) 1 1/2 c 3 1/4 behind it.
  • Layer onto Basic Black 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Crushed Curry 1/2 x 1 3/4, stamp greeting using Memento Black, cut into banner and add to card front.
  • Take open oak leaf, press into StazOn Jet Black and let dry
  • For the solid oak leaf color using the Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities – it works REALLY nicely!
  • Add solid leaf to open leaf and add to card front.
  • Tie knot in piece of Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon and add using a glue dot.
  • Add Basic Black, Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry Candy Dots under the word FALL to finish it off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!

Nature’s Peace

TSSC331Another Monday and time for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!  As soon as I saw the sketch I KNEW I’d be using this set (which worked out GREAT since it was ‘sitting on top of my desk’ for a card set I was working on for Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Card “Create”tions!….LOVE when that happens).

Okay…a little about this set.  I can’t say it was a must have of mine but because we don’t like to do a lot of duplication of sets for a Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions collection…I volunteered to do this set instead of the one I had originally signed up for just to see what I could do with it.  I thought I came up with some pretty cool cards.  And well since the set was ‘sitting on top of my desk’ and it truly was absolutely PERFECT for this sketch…well…what can I say!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Stamp snowflake using Versamark and white emaboss
  • Silver Glimmer paper – 1 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • All is Calm dsp – take the snowy landscape print 3 x 4 1/4.  Stamp image using Versamark and silver emboss. Sponge edges in Basic Grey.
  • Lost Lagoon – 3 x 4 3/4, round corners of right side, layer embossed panel on it using dimensionals, add panel to card front using dimensionals.

TSSC331So many possibilities you could do with is sketch and see how perfect it was with that set!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Four Feathers Takeout Box

HolidayCardHopWelcomeHappy Saturday everyone and welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Card “Create”tions Saturday Blog Hop! For this edition on Saturdays our fabulous design team is going to have a Blog Hop showing off a small favor that matches the card set that we did for our subscribers (don’t worry…it’s not too late to join!)

If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Natasha Zandbergen’ blog Inking Out of the Box.  Isn’t it fun seeing all of the take out boxes?  I know I’m getting some GREAT ideas!

The other special thing about our Saturday Blog Hop is that each of us will be using the same item for our favor and this week we are all using the cool new Takeout boxes!

This week we featured Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving card sets.  I LOVE the new Four Feathers set so I used it along with the All is Calm dsp and for this the Merry Everything stamp set.

TakeOutBox2

I randomly stamped the small leaf on the takeout box using Baked Brown Sugar.  The belly band is 1 1/2″ wide and has an extra piece along the bottom as 12″ was not long enough.  The one tag is made from Lost Lagoon and the Scallop Tag Topper and the other is the Note Tag Punch.  The leaves were done in pear Pizzazz, Lost Lagoon and the the last one was gold embossed on kraft.  Finally I add things finishing it off for the new Basic Gold Button and Linen thread.  SOOO AWESOME!!!
