Delightful Treat Pouch

This is my first post that is not a card!  Oh MY !!  But who does not like to receive cute little treats, especially chocolate. And this is a really quick pouch to make so if would be perfect for a little treat for a group and can be decorated to  match the occasion.  Here is my Delightful Daisy Treat Pouch:


Daisy Delight Bundle, 145361


Is this not Delightfully Cute ?  HaHa….   I received the prototype for this little treat pouch at a swap and there was no name, so I cannot give the original maker credit.  (Always put your name on your swaps!)

Too bad you cannot really see the beautiful Delightful Daisy DSP that is the band around the pouch.  It is gorgeous!!  I will give you the measurements for everything and show a picture of the inside piece.  But trust me, this is super quick and easy if you were making multiples !!

  • The base of the pouch is done in Powder Pink card stock and measures 6 1/2 X 2
  • Score from each end at 3″, then punch each end with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch
  • The Band is done with the Delightful Daisy DSP and measures 5 1/4 X 2
  • Score the band at 1/2, 1, 3 , & 3 1/2. Use your bone folder to score each fold to assure it lines up properly
  • Add the Tear Tape to the very edge of the end opposite of the 1/2″ score.
  • Lay the band down with all folds folded and you can see that it overlaps perfectly. Peel off the tape and adhere.
  • Lay your nuggets down on the pouch and fold the top over then hold it and slide the band on.
  • Decorate the front as you like!!!

Wasn’t that quick and easy ?  Here is a photo of the pouch, or the card stock that is scored and punched.

Delightful Daisy Treat Pouch

Can you see how technical this is????  I am really being silly.  This is one of the easiest treat pouches I have ever made.  So please give it a try.

For the Daisy on the front, I stamped the daisy twice in Powder Pink and punched out with the daisy punch.  I sponged some Daffodil Delight to blend it with the DSP.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Birthday Banners Set in Powder Pink and just snipped the ends to make a banner.  I used glue dots to adhere the daisy and a dimensional in the center of the daisy to hold the banner.  Then just slide it over the top of the pouch and tie a bow.  The bow is more for securing the candy during transport so they do not slide out the top!!  We cannot have that!!

I hope you will try making these cute things and use your creativity to decorate the front.  Thank you for stopping by today!   I do not have the product list as they are all new items and I was having technical difficulty getting the pictures. I will figure this stuff out eventually!  The main thing to remember is the Daisy Delight Bundle !!

Make A Wish

Today’s card is one I shared with my stamp club on Sunday.  I used the Window Shopping stamp set in a different way. Here is my card.

Window Shopping, 142920

For this card I stamped the two background pieces in Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate ink and then punched them out using the 1 1/4 circle punch.  I then used the 1 3/8 circle punch to make backdrops for the stamped images in Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate card stock.

The Designer Series Paper is a retiring paper stack named A Little Foxy.  It is cut to 5 1/4 X 1 and layered on a Calypso Coral piece cut to 5 1/4 X 1 1/4. After I placed the circles, I stamped Make A Wish in Smoky Slate ink and added the little cupcake from the stamp set in Calypso Coral.

For some added touches, I placed a Metallic Enamel Shapes heart in the center of the Smoky Slate circle. I also tied a bow using the Thick Baker’s Twine in Calypso Coral.

I hope you like this simple but a little different take on this card.  The DSP and the Baker’s Twine I used are retiring.  If you like any of these items, you can click on any of the product pictures  listed below and it will take you to my on line store.

Thanks For Helping Me Grow

With all of the graduations going on now, I had a request for a Thank You card from a graduating senior.  To say I was pleased is an understatement!!  The card was for a favorite Aunt who loves to garden.  This is what I came up with.

Helping Me Grow, 140764, $26.00


I used bright colors and a single stem from the Helping Me Grow stamp set and I do like the way it turned out.  I hope the recipient does as well.  Below are the card details.

  • The base is Melon Mambo cut to 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 and folded in half
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 3/8 X 4 1/8
  • The Wild Wasabi layer is 5 1/4 X 4 and embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder
  • The smaller Melon Mambo is 4 3/4 X 2
  • The smaller Whisper White is 4 5/8 X 1 7/8
  • The flower and sentiment are stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy card.  I very much appreciate your comments.  And if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sneak Peek – Inking Royalty’s May Blog Hop


Welcome to InKing Royalty’s May Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects that offer you a sneak peek at new items in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog. We are so excited about the June 1 release of this new catalog – it’s AMAZING – and we are excited to share our sneak peek creations with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My card for today’s InKing Royalty Hop is using items that I won at OnStage and that I got with the pre-order that us demonstrators LOVE!  Is a great treat to see the catalog first and to then get to touch and play with new items.

Oh So Eclectic, Lovely Inside and Out

The sets I used are Lovely Inside & Out for the sentiment and Oh So Eclectic for the flowers and leaves.  Oh So Eclectic is a very versatile stamp set and can be used singly or as a TWO STEP process.  I did the two step process and stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzaz and then the top with Always Artichoke.  The flower is stamped in Fresh Fig (one of the new InColors and one I LOVE!) and then secondly in Archival Basic Black. I used a Pear Pizzaz Stampin’ Write Marker to color the stem of the flower.

I added the sentiment in Pear Pizzaz and Always Artichoke and then used my friend Julie DiMatteo’s technique ( Julie’s posts are a must see, she is Number 2 in todays lineup.)  I added a little splatter to the white part of the card.  To do easy splatter Julie uses a marker, Fresh Fig, and flicks the large tip on the inside of the cap.  It is so simple….proof is in the card that I did! I then added a couple of rhinestones just for some bling.

The supplies I used today are:  I do not have a photo of the Oh So Eclectic stamp set ….So sorry !!


Thanks So Much !

I am once again using retiring products.  The set That’s The Tag was definitely a “sleeper” set.  It was to me as well until the first time I inked it up.  And now I have used it several times in the last few weeks. Some of these items will stay with me in my craft room even after the new catalog goes live on June 1.  I am thinking this set will be one of those keepers!

My Thanks So Much card was part of a swap I did with my stamp club last weekend.  We do a Spring and a Fall card swap each year.

That’s The Tag, 142918, $17.00


This layout is a “File Away For Later” !  When I see the sketch challenges I think of other ways to use them, like I did here.  This was a challenge sketch I had made note of except it called for a stamped background.  For today’s card I just replaced it with the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack in Emerald Envy.  The banner is the reverse side of the stripes on the DSP.

  • The base of this card is Emerald Envy card stock cut to 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 folded in half
  • The Delightful Dijon is cut to 5 1/4 X 4
  • The Striped Emerald Envy DSP is cut to 5 1/8 X 3 7/8
  • The banner is also Emerald Envy DSP and is 1 1/2 X 4 and punched with the Banner Triple Punch
  • The Delightful Dijon circle is punched with the 2″ Circle Punch
  • The stamped circle is stamped in Emerald Envy and Delightful Dijon and punched with the 1 3/4 Circle Punch
  • I added the Metallic Enamel Shape as a highlight

And there you go, another quick and easy card and one that can be CASED in many different ways.  I hope you like this card idea and will CASE it yourself.
