Hinged Pumpkin Box

One of my favorite sweet treats is anything with White Chocolate.  I am always on the lookout for the White Chocolate Reeses’s.  I found the Pumpkins at the store the other day and new I had to find a treat holder it would fit.  I found one of The Paper Pixie boxes that I had to resize just a bit, but it is wonderful.  Julie is a dear friend and I always look to her projects when I need a box.

 

 

I took a side view picture so you could see the Diagonal of the lid.  Here is an open view.

 

 

And here is a link to The Paper Pixie’s video and directions for the box.  Mine is a bit longer.  It is easy to adjust the size to what you need.  Click HERE for The Paper Pixie Video.

 

Paper

The paper I used for this great little box is the Cute Halloween 6X6 Designer Series Paper.  For the base I chose Pumpkin Pie to match the candy wrapping.  The layer of the tag is Old Olive from the polka dots of the DSP.  I love all of the possibilities with the colors in the DSP piece.

Stamps

The stamp set I used is the Cutest Halloween from page 51 of the Mini Catalog.  The entire Suite is on those pages.  A great thing about this stamp set is that the images are not scary.  I do not do scary!!  Which is another reason that I show a cat face to go with the Trick Or Treat!

Finishing Touches

To make the tag a little special, I used the Essential Tag Punch.  It adds just enough detail to keep the tag from being a bit plain.  The gorgeous ribbon is part of the Suite as well.  It is Black & White 1/4″ Gingham ribbon and is a dream to work with.

Don’t forget to check out The Paper Pixie video and see how easy this project is.

Pretty Pumpkins

This Mini Catalog is full of beautiful stamps and other products.  And I say that I love them all.  This is true, but one of the favorites is the Pretty Pumpkin Bundle.  I have used it a couple of times already.  This version has an old, but fun, technique for the pumpkin.

 

Stampin' Up!, Pretty Pumpkins, Blackberry Beauty, Jackie Beers

 

Paper

I have to begin with the paper.  This piece of the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper is worthy of an “OH MY!!!”.  The Blackberry Bliss mixed with the softer colors and gold is amazing.  I tried layering without adding the thin Basic White layer, and it just did not work.  With the White focal layer, it needed that thin strip to tie it together.

Stamps

The gorgeous pumpkin and the font of the sentiment are part of what makes this stamp set such a favorite.  It is the Pretty Pumpkin Bundle, although I did not use the dies.  That flowing script on the sentiment is stamped using Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I have commented previously  how much this ink appears to shimmer and looks like embossing almost.  It definitely does in this instance.

Technique

As I mentioned in the beginning, this is an old technique with various names.  I call it the Baby Wipe Technique.  My Silicone Mat was used with a Baby Wipe folded into a square on top of it.  Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, and Cinnamon Cider Re-Inkers were then used to randomly drop little dots of color around on the baby wipe.  It really looks like a hot mess when they all bleed together.

Here is where opinions very.  Some people say to just ink your stamp one time from the mixture and stamp it.  I like a variety of the colors.  I ink a couple of times and turn the stamp as I go.  This method puts more of a mixture of color and makes some new colors.  It is definitely a technique to experiment with.

Measurements

  • Card base of Blackberry Bliss is cut 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
  • Basic White layer is cut 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP layer is cut 5 1/8 X 3 7/8
  • Blackberry Bliss small layer is cut 2 3/4 X 4 1/8
  • Basic White stamped layer is cut 2 5/8 X 4
  • The focal layers have the top corners rounded using the Detailed Trio Punch

Polished Ornament

Until a couple of years ago, I was one who always used traditional colors for Christmas.  That changed with a ribbon I found that had Red and ,in Stampin’ Up! colors, Granny Apple Green.  I was immediately drawn to it, and that ribbon changed my opinion of Christmas Colors.

Based on my new found love of “different” colors, the Whimsey & Wonder Designer Series Paper was right up my alley.  Today’s card is there as well.

 

Stampin' Up!, Bright Baubles, Whimsey & Wonder, Polka Dot, Jackie Beers

 

Paper

The stamp should be the star of the show, and it is, but the paper is just so very pretty!  This piece from the Whimsey & Wonder Designer Series Paper is amazing!  In trying to decide colors, I placed it next to Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, and Misty Moonlight.  They all were awesome and each gave a little bit different look.  I ended choosing the Polished Pink for the brightness.

Since this card was for my Stamp Club to make, I needed to stretch the DSP.  To do that I embossed a piece of Soft Succulent with the Dots Embossing Folder.

Stamps

The stamp set is the Bright Baubles and is a Bundle.  I love the possibilities with this Bundle.  My plan is to make tags for my Christmas gifts this year using the different ornaments and inserts.  The one I chose for this card is pretty simple.  It was stamped using Polished Pink Ink and colored with Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.  The finishing touches are a Polished Pink Jewel from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels, and a glittery ribbon.

Measurements

  • The Polished Pink card base is 4 1/4 X 11 scored and folded at 5 1/2
  • The DSP is cut to 5 1/4 X 2 3/8
  • The Soft Succulent is cut to 5 1/4 X 1 5/8 (The piece is actually 5 1/4 X 3 1/4 and embossed with the Dots Embossing Folder and then it is cut at 1 5/8. So you get two pieces from one use of the folder)
  • A Basic White piece is cut 5 1/4 X 4 and used to easily layer the DSP and Embossed pieces. They totally cover the White.
  • A 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 piece of Basic White was used to stamp the ornament and then die cut.

Holly Bird

The card I have to share with you today is from one of those stamp sets that I had no interest in on my first look through the catalog.  This is getting to be a common theme for me!  I loved the Designer Series Paper but was not as excited about the stamp set.  That is until I saw it used !!

 

Stampin' Up!, Happy Holly Days, Painted Christmas, Ombre Specialty Paper, Shimmer Vellum, Scalloped Contours Dies, Jackie Beers

 

Stamp Set

It really is hard to say which is the star of this card.  Is it the stamps or the paper?   I really love both.  The Happy Holly-Days stamp set is definitely a good one.  I love the Bird and the Holly .  The bird is colored using Real Red and Poppy Parade.  When you get an up close look at a cardinal, the red is quite a few different shades.  That was my thought when coloring this bird.

For the holly, I used both Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent to color the leaves.  Then followed with both shades of Real Red for the berries.  The layer of Shimmer Vellum the bird is on is from the Scalloped Contours Dies.  He needed something to help ground him.  I added the two sets of Holly to the vellum to even everything out.

Paper

I have used three different kinds of Stampin’ Up! special paper and that does not include the regular cardstock!  The cardbase is Evening Evergreen with a layer of Basic White.  Then starts the special paper.  The strip on the left is from the Ombre Specialty Paper.  It is a soft pink that changes into a red as you go down the slightly glimmery paper!  Yes, it is gorgeous.  I went with the softer end of the paper so it did not conflict with the red of the bird and the DSP.

The Designer Series Paper is the Painted Christmas DSP.  This is probably my favorite of the pack.  I love the soft Flirty Flamingo going into the Real Red or Cherry Cobbler.  The scalloped vellum is from the 2021-2023 Shimmer Vellum pack.  There are all of the 2021-2023 In Colors each in a Shimmer Vellum.  It is really pretty up close.

No sentiment was needed on the front of this card.  I allowed the stamps and paper send the appropriate message!  I hope you enjoyed this card.

Amazing Sheep

I love the various fun animal stamps that Stampin’ Up! artists come up with.  They are always spot on in terms of their cuteness.  When I saw the Counting Sheep in the Sale-A-Bration catalog I was drawn to one particularly.  This one is the star of my card today.

 

Stampin' Up!, Counting Sheep, You're A Peach, In Color Vellum, Jackie Beers

 

I wanted to play along with a Color Challenge from Global Design Project.  The colors are the ones I have used here today.  They helped me to create the little barn yard scene.  Here is the banner.

Paper

The paper that I picked for the color challenge are from the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.  The sky and grass are the reverse side of some of the peach papers.  As soon as I had my scene in my head, I knew which papers I needed and I think they are great.  The card base is Pale Papaya, as is the sheeps lips and eyeliner!

The fence is made using Crumb Cake cardstock and cut with the matching Sheep Dies.  I cut two pieces and they fit the size of my layer perfectly.

Stamps

This is the sheep that got my attention.  I could just see her, with her eyeliner and lip gloss, being the center of attention.  To further carrying that theme I placed her on top of the fence like she is performing, or maybe just needed to be seen!

The banner hanging on the fence is another stamp from the set.  You Are Amazing is always a good stamp to have on hand.  For this application, I stamped it and then rough cut some tears in the banner.  I figure someone tried to eat it!

Finishing Touches

The final touch for this card was adding the Sun.  It is also in the Sheep Dies and I love the stitching around the center.  Since I have used it several times this week, you know I am loving the In Color Shimmer Vellum from the Annual Catalog.  I used the Pale Papaya Vellum for the sun.  It is finished off with a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel in Pale Papaya as well.

Birthday Treats

Sweet Treats are always welcome in my opinion.  And Birthday Sweet Treats are even better because everyone knows that those treats have no calories!!  Today’s card is one of those Birthday Treats.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sweets and treats, Measure of Love, Hand penned, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

There are a mixture of stamp sets in making this card.  The cake plate and dome are from the Sweets & Treats stamp set from the Mini Catalog. The stack of cupcakes is from the Measure of Love stamp set from the Annual Catalog. And the top cookie is also from the Sweets & Treats.  All of these pieces are colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  I have all of them listed in the Supply List.

Paper

The recipient of this card loves purple.  So I found this piece of the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper as a perfect compliment to the touches of pink and purple in the cupcakes and cookie.  Because the focal point is quite large, I kept the rest of the card fairly simple.  It is Thick Basic White cardstock, the DSP piece, and the Basic White layer.

Finishing Touches

I tied the colors of the cake plate and dome together by stamping and coloring with Pool Party Ink and Stampin’ Blends.  The Pool Party reminds me of the old fashioned carnival glass that my grandmother had.  So to match that color with some bling, I used the Genial Gems.  They are in a soft green and a soft gold.  The green blends well with the Pool Party.  You can never have too much bling, and it doesn’t show well in the photo, I added Wink of Stella to the cupcake wrappers and the center icing on the cookie.

August InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects feature leaves and trees, so you are likely to find lots of inspiration for Autumn. We are excited to share our 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.

I love Fall / Autumn and always hope for the drop in temperature to be a good one.  LOL!!!  My card showcases a couple of different leaves, but is not the vibrant Fall leaves color you might expect.

 

Stampin' Up!, Forever Fern, Painted Labels, Time Worn Type, Stitched Leaves, Jackie Beers

 

Instead of vibrant colors I went with a more monochromatic palette with just a pop of color.  But it is all about the leaves.

Background Layer

I used the Forever Fern stamp set to create the background layer.  It is Soft Succulent that is stamped off once before going onto the Sahara Sand piece.  After stamping the leaves, I used the new Time Worn Type 3D Embossing Folder to give a rough texture to the layer.  To finish it off, I sponged Soft Succulent ink over the raised areas very lightly.  Just enough to show the texture.

Die Cut Pieces

The die cut leaves are from the Stitched Leaves Dies.  I used Soft Succulent, Sahara Sand and Bumblebee for the different leaves.  The detail on the leaves is one I never get tired of seeing.  As a grounding layer for the leaves, I went back to one of my favorite dies.  It is the Painted Labels Die swirly circle.  The shimmer you see is from the 2021-2023 Shimmer Vellum.  This one is the Evening Evergreen.  That shimmer is so pretty!

Finishing Touches

To finish off the theme, I used a sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Delicate Dahlias.  The full sentiment is Oh So Happy For You.  I wanted just the Oh So Happy, like I am Oh So Happy it is cooler weather for the Fall theme!!!  All it takes is a small post it note to cover the For You when inking up, and I had what I wanted.  The final touch to match the Bumblee leaf is a small Playing With Pattern Adhesive Dot.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sue Jackson at Just Peachy Stamping. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Gather Together

I am loving playing with all of the new products from the Mini Catalog.  The one I am showcasing today is the Pretty Pumpkin Bundle.  The matching Dies are fabulous!!!

 

 

Paper

The beginning of this fun card was this Soft Succulent piece of DSP from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper.  I love the faded look to the background as well as the script writing.  Knowing that I was playing with pumpkins, I had to choose a color that worked with the Soft Succulent.  I actually found two other pieces of DSP from that same pack of paper.  Instead of a Pumpkin Pie pattern, they are Calypso Coral.  But they are gorgeous pumpkins!

To Die cut the larger and fancier pumpkin, I added the Adhesive Sheet to the piece of DSP.  I cut a piece a little larger than the die and added the Adhesive sheet, and then die cut the image.  This turns the pumpkin into basically a sticker.  No fighting trying to get that pumpkin glued down without a mess!  The smaller pumpkin is adhered with a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamps

There is very little stamping on this card.  The “vine” for the pumpkins got hidden a bit.  You can see it to the left of the smaller pumpkin.  It is stamped and colored with Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends.  There is a matching die for it as well.

The sentiment is from the stamp set and I love everything about it.  It has such a beautiful font that makes it sort of fancy I believe.  To showcase the sentiment I stamped it and then die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The finishing touch is a Genial Gem that matches the Soft Succulent perfectly!

Feels Like Home

I am showcasing one of the Free Sale-A-Bration stamp sets today.  It is one that is Free with a $50.00 product order.  The Feels Like Home stamp set is a sweet set to have on hand.  And if you are like me and love to color, then it is a perfect one to get.

 

 

Stamps

I love this little scene with the bicycle, flowers, and what appears to be, an older building and door.  As soon as I saw this scene I thought of my trip to Amsterdam a few years ago.  There were flowers everywhere and more bicycles than I would have imagined.

This layout is a bit of a “clean” one from my normal cards.  I did not intend for it to be that way.  But the stamp and the sweet sentiment sort of decided for me.

Colors

To bring out all of the images in the stamp, it required quite a bit of color.  I thought a purple would go great with the Crumb Cake card base and the brown of the door.  It needed to pop a bit.   The 1/8″ border you see  of Highland Heather is enough to pull the flower pots and bicycle flowers out.  .  All of the Stampin’ Blends I used are listed in the supply list.  I will say that this is one of the shortest supplies lists I have ever done, with the exception of the Stampin’ Blends!!

You’re My Cup Of Tea

For those of you that ordered my Paper Shares, the paper has arrived.  I will get them completed over the weekend.  The Blackberry Beauty, that was not originally available, is on it’s way.  Hopefully the beginning of the week will see everything finished.  I will let you all know when they are ready to go.  Thank You again for ordering them.

Today’s card is a very clean and feminine card.  I mixed the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper with the Brew Some Fun stamp set.

 

 

Stamp Set

The Brew Some Fun stamp set pairs with the Warm Wraps Dies that are a carryover from the last Holiday Mini Catalog coffee set.  This set has great little decorations and sentiments.  I think of this type set as a Friends stamp set.  One which I would make cards for specific friends and they would get the theme.  Here is a look at the inside.

 

 

The little party hats are so cute. I colored them with Stampin’ Write Markers in a variety of purple and pink colors.

Paper and Color

The gorgeous and soft plaid paper is from the Pansy Petals Designer Series paper.  I love a light purple or lavender color.  With the business of the plaid, the sentiment did not need anything to add on to it.  The tea cup is colored with the Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends.

The card base is Fresh Freesia with a layer of Basic White before the plaid DSP.  The fun Fold is Basic White. I hope you will give this sweet stamp set a second glance if you have passed over it previously.
