Holiday Treat Bag

So I had a little extra time today to add a special treat for a party I'm going to this weekend. My new down line is hosting her first party and wanted my help. I'm going to be showing her how to demo my Snowflake Card. I can't wait to show all the ladies that beautiful card. 
So to help her out I wanted to make a little take home treat box. 
I found this box on Pinterest. Lisa Brown is the demonstrator that came up with this really cute box. She has a video on her site www.inkandinspirations.com 
She showcases a Halloween box and I wish I had seen it sooner. 

What I used:
Card stock 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 ( I used the Season of Style DSP Stack. It's already cut to those dimensions)
Score it at 2, 3, 5, and 6 ( on the 6 1/2 side)
Rotate and score at 1 inch
For the tag I stamped Tags 4 You (131823) with coordinating punch
1 x 6 1/2 strip to fold over
Rhinestones and a bow
Fold all your scored marks and cut off the smallest corner. Once that is done cut up the bottom to the 1 inch mark. 

Add adhesive to the smallest flap and fold up box. Also close up the bottom. 
Add your treat and staple closed. Then add your decorations and you have an adorable treat that anyone would love.




Enjoy!

Snowflake Triple Stamped Card

Hello to all my Busy Bees'

I wanted to share with you today this wonderful card that I made at a recent stamp party. This is one of the fave cards that I do that the girls just love to make.
So lets get started:
Island Indigo Card stock:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2   Scored at 4 1/4
4 1/4 x 3  and another 3 3/4 x 1 3/4
Whisper White Card Stock: 5 1/4 x 4, 4 x 2 3/4, and 3 1/2 x 1 1/2
Also an extra piece for your snowflake: 3 x 4

I used the Festive Flurry Stamp Set (131781) from the Holiday Catalog (framelits too)
and Sassy Salutations (126707) from the Annual Catalog.

The colors for the snowflakes are Coastal Cabana (131175), Smokey Slate (131179), and Island Indigo (126986) for the greeting. 

First I attached the 5 1/4 x 4 and 4 x 2 3/4 Whisper White Card Stock together with a small piece of snail adhesive. Just a small piece because you are going to take it apart after you stamp it. 
 Center the smaller piece onto the lager one.
Then stamp your Snowflakes


Once your done stamping then gently pull apart the two piece of paper. Don't worry if it rips a little, your gonna cover it up and only you will know!
Then attach the larger piece to your card and the smaller one to your colored card stock. 
 Then attach together using snail adhesive.
Once that is set the stamp your greeting on the smallest paper, attach to the colored card stock, add dementionals and center it onto your card.




Now for your Snowflake!!!!! 
( Sorry for the picture quality... it started getting dark in my room so I had to turn on my light) 

First we stamp our snowflake using Versa Mark Ink (102283)
 Add Heat ans Stick Powder (100625) to your stamp.
 Heat with Heating Tool (129053).
 Add your glitter (132205)- Holiday Catalog
 Cut out with Framelits (132193) and the Big Shot (113439)
 Add pearls (119247) and then add to your card!

Hope your enjoyed that card! It looks so nice all put together! Have a Merry Christmas Stampers!

Pansy Pop Card


This card is so cute! What friend wouldn't love getting this card? I just can't get over how adorable it is. The stamp sets I used are Flower Shop (130942) and Banner Greetings (129714). The colors i chose are: Summer Starfruit (126991), Primrose Petals (126858), and Bermuda Bay (131171).

Here are my measurements:
Whisper White Card Stock: 7 1/4 x 5 1/2    Score at 3 inches
Whisper White: 2 1/2 x 7 1/2    Another: 3 x 5 1/2
A color piece for Bitty Butterfly Punch (129406)

First I stamped Bermuda Bay in a cascade down my 3 x 5 1/2 card stock.
Then I added the other colors. With the 7 1/4 x 5 1/2 I stamped my extra flowers so they can be punched out later. 

I then stamped my banner. I wish there was a punch for these, so i had to cut it out by hand. 
 I then cut around my cascade flowers and placed them on my card. it doesn't have to look perfect because once you punch out your extra flowers and place them on top with dimensionals you won't notice any mistakes you think you made. Don't forget to emboss your card. I used the Polk-dot folder. I can't find it right now so I don't have a picture, sorry! But emboss the smaller side.
 Don't forget to add a Bitty Butterfly and Rhinestones. I know those rhinestones always make a card sparkle!
Hope you have fun making this card. I can see this definitely brightening up someones day!

Stationary Card


So here is what I call a "Stationary Card." I got the idea from Brandy Cox at www.brandyscards.com

She is an amazing demonstrator and comes up with the coolest cards.
When it came to making my card I did alter it slightly due to not having the same stamps that Brandy had. I did use the Stippled Blossom Stamp Set (126747) and Perfectly Penned Stamp Set (122892). I also changed to color to Midnight Muse Ink (126860). 
Here are my measurements:
Whisper White Card stock: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2      Scored at 4 1/4  (basic card)
Midnight Muse Card stock: 5 1/4 x 4      Another : 3 1/2 x 2
Whisper White Card stock: 5 x 3 3/4      Another: 3 1/4 x 1 3/4
Whisper White Strip: 5 1/2 x 1 1/4  Embossed with Lattice Embossing Folder


I stamped the Stippled blossom around my 5 x 3 3/4 card stock. 


Taped together Midnight Muse to stamped card stock and taped to card.

Stamped greeting using Perfectly Penned Stamp Set. 

Put card all together. Don't forget to emboss your strip. (Picture Not Shown).

Also don't forget to stamp the envelope. This adds so much to your card. It makes it look like a complete set. 



Hope you enjoyed this card. There is a video on Brandy's Site if that helps. Thanks for stopping by!
