Country Lane Suite Card #3

I love making unique fun cards. It's not easy. It's easier to make just your standard card so it can fit in a standard envelope and your more encourage to send it. Making a fun fold card and be challenging and sometimes you can't send them in the mail. 


This card is the same size as a standard card and can fit in an envelope to be sent with no problem. I love how this card came out. I wanted to make it more muted in color and not be so bright. This way I can show you how versatile this stamp set can be. 


This would be a great card to give to someone whom is hosting Thanksgiving dinner. Or to a guest that is coming to your table and that you are thankful in celebrating with them.

Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2

Country Lane Suite Card #2

I am not a purple person what-so-ever!
I love pink and stick with pink in all I do. However since Stampin Up updated their colors and added a few purple colors I have been a little submissive. 


Blackberry Bliss is a beautiful color. It is a deep purple that I can get used to. 
(Gorgeous Grape had me last month)
This color is very fun to use with this stamp set. 


I wanted to make a different fold for this card. I cut my paper and scored it like any other card but ended up cutting off  1 3/4 from the front to be able to show off the beautiful Country Lane Designer Series Paper (147804).
I really love how this card came out. 


Measurements:
Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score 4 1/4 - cut off 1 3/4
Designer Series Paper  1 7/8 x 5 1/2
Galvanized Metallic Paper  2 1/2 x 5 1/2
Largest stitched square
scrap for stamping  4 1/2 x 2 1/2

Country Lane Suite Card #1


I love this stamp set. I didn't think that I would. I first saw it in the catalog and thought "oh that's pretty", but the more I kept looking at it I knew I loved it. 


It is such a refreshing stamp set. It can be brightened up or toned down, it all depends on how you want to color it. And the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (147906) is beyond perfect. 


One trick I used on this card is I inked up the front of the embossing folder. The front is the side with the Stampin Up logo. (see picture)
This allowed for a darker tint to the paper and helped the embossed side really pop. The ink will wipe right off your embossed folder with no problems. 


Measurements: 
Card base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 
score 4 1/4
Old Olive Card Stock   4 x 5 1/4
Thick Whisper White  4 x 3
Largest Stitched Oval - scrap for cutting out thankful sentiment
1/3 of Chicken Wire

Halloween Full Candy Wrappers

This is a great idea for a last minute treat.
If you come across you needing to make a last minute treat for a friend, co-worker, teacher, etc. then this is perfect. 


I had gotten a box of full size candy from Walmart for around $11. It comes with 18 pieces so the cost works out to over $.60 each. Not bad at all. 


I wrapped each one and decorated it with a quick design so it looks great without it just being a plain candy bar. 

Measurements: 
Designer Series Paper sizes
Hershey Bar: 6 x 5
Reeses: 4 x 6 1/2
KitKat: 3 1/2 x 6 1/2
Whisper White for stamping
Black for web



Hope you Enjoyed!

Halloween Hershey Nugget Holder


Now this treat theme series isn't complete without a Hershey Nugget Holder. 
This is my first one actually. I have not made a Nugget Holder on my blog and felt it was about time. 


Now I could have copied other demonstrators and their Nugget Holders but I decided to come up with my own. It was fun actually. 


This holder will hold 4 Nuggets perfectly. And it's just the sweetest little box ever. 
( you can make 4 of these boxes out of one piece of card stock) 


Measurements: 
Card Stock 5 1/2 x 3 3/4
score horizontal:  1/2, 2 1/2, 3, 5
score vertical: 1/2, 3 1/4
Designer Series Paper: 2 5/8 x 1 7/8
1 x 3 - for candy



Hope you Enjoyed!

Halloween Pumpkin Brownie Holder


Now for some real treats. I have been doing a few post and videos on ideas for non-candy treats for kids. But I can only take so much. I need some chocolate!! 


So of course I channeled my inner Erica Cerwin and got some Little Debbie snacks. Now Erica is a genius when it comes to Little Debbie snack treat holders and I knew if I thought it out hard enough I can come up with a perfect holder for my treat. 


I am so in love with how this treat holder came out. It was so much fun to make and I will definitely be doing more in the future. I have to say I am very proud of myself for coming up with this all on my own. I am very surprised that I even had any brownies left over. Well... not for long. 


Measurements:
Card Stock 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 
use Envelope Punch Board and score at 2 1/8 and 3 1/8
Designer Series Paper 2 1/4 x 7 1/2
scraps of Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist for sentiments and bats


Hope you Enjoyed!

Halloween Sticky Hands Treats


Now to keep in theme of making treats for kids that aren't candy, here is one for the books. 
A big thank you to Erica Cerwin for coming up with this idea. It is beyond perfect. 


This treat is so amazing I know every kid will love it. And it works perfect with the theme of not giving candy to kids at school. Whats also great is you can get this bag of treats at Walmart for around $6. 


I was inspired by Erica's creation that I had to share. I did tweak it a bit from what she came up with but that's the beauty of being creative. You can come up with any design in the front of your treat and it will look awesome.




Measurements: 
Card Stock  4 x 7
score  3 and 6 1/4
Card stock  3 3/4 x 2 3/4
Designer Series Paper  1/2 x 3 3/4
