Tiny Treat Box Sweet Wrap

Surprisingly today I don’t have a card project to share with you, instead I’m sharing a simple way to decorate one of our Clear Tiny Treat boxes. With sixteen in a pack these  little boxes would make the cutest party favours. As their food safe you can fill them with any treats you like, obviously mine has been filled with jelly babies to match the paper.

To create the wrap you will need a piece of DSP measuring 2″ x 11″. Turn the paper so the side you want on the outside in face down on the Simply Scored tool. Score lines at 1″, 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″, 9″ and 10″.

Take the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and punch each end of the DSP. Fold along all score lines and then wrap around your Tiny Treat Box. Thread some Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon through the top of the wrap to secure it to the box. The wrap is secure enough to stay on, but easy enough to slide off when your ready to eat your treats.

To decorate the wrap I added a label stamped from the Sweetest Thing stamp set and die-cut from the Jar of Sweets Framelits and then fastened onto the wrap with the Old Olive Linen Thread.

Hope you like this cute little idea, I’ll be back tomorrow with another card idea for you.

Pop of Petals Floral Trio Birthday Card

Can you believe I’ve had the Pop of Petals stamp set and matching Four-Petal Flower Punch and they’ve not been used, shocking right? So today’s the day I inked it up and created the simple but stunning birthday card.

Three stamped and punched flowers in Berry Burst and a little foliage stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and you have the main part of the card.

Next simply add your chosen greeting to the centre of the stamping, my sentiment came from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, then you have an almost complete card.

To finish the card I added a large Gold Facet Gem to the centre of each flower, aren’t they just the perfect fit?

Layered Vellum Card with Butterfly Gala

After I created my trio of cards for the Pootler’s team Spring/Summer blog hop I had this background piece made from the Crackle Paint stamp set in Gorgeous Grape so I decided to create another butterfly card.

I added a layer of vellum to the front of my Gorgeous Grape layer as it was a little over powering in such a bright colour and my butterflies were lost.

I used the Stitched scallop boarder die from the be Mine Stitched Framelits to create a banner across the card for my sentiment.

The three punched butterflies created from the two-step stamps in Butterfly Gala finish the card off and add even more dimension with their wings.

Niece’s Birthday card with Piece of Cake

My project today features a birthday card for my Niece’s birthday yesterday. Hope she liked it. I chose the background paper from How Sweet It Is Designer Paper as it reminded me of her sweet and bubbly nature.

The main image comes from the Piece of Cake stamp set and is stamped on a Whisper White punch out of the Starburst Punch, I’m not entirely convinced I got this part of the card just right as the candle don’t look right to me.

I grounded my birthday cake image by using a banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelits and to finish the card I added some of the Clear Faceted Gems which I coloured Lovely Lipstick using a Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and join me again soon.

Monochromatic Floral card with Blended Seasons

I’m going all modern and monochromatic for today’s card and simply using black and white. I’m loving how versatile the Blended Seasons bundle is, the combinations really do seem to be endless.

This time I simply stamped the large floral image on black cardstock and embossed in white, a technique which looks stunning no matter what image you use. Just remember to use your embossing buddy so you don’t end up with little white powder flecks everywhere.

Using the Stamparatus I was able to perfectly line up the greeting in my frame die cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits. The black 1/8″ cord trim works well to “fasten” the frame to my card. The background paper if from the Tropical Chic 6×6 DSP Stack which has a few black and white pattern options in it, if you don’t have this you could easily make your own or use the Petal Passion DSP from the Spring/Summer catalogue if you have any left. A few faceted black gems and the card is finished.

Here’s a look at what I did to the inside, just a simple bit of stamping.

Eskimo Twins with Cookie Cutter Christmas

I’ve pulled out an old favourite today, Cookie Cutter Christmas which was released two years ago, I’m sure many of you have this stamp set and its matching punch in your collection. It’s the perfect combination for making quick Christmas cards.

I’ve focused my project today on the cute little Eskimo as I’m not 100% certain this one has seen ink yet and with the addition of our Stampin’ Blends its even quicker to make a lovely card.

A little Wink of Stella on the Eskimo’s fur adds a little frosty sparkle and the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing folder adds a subtle snow effect to the background. Adding some Shimmer Ribbon in Pool Party gives a more frosty effect. I love how this card turned out and its the perfect non-traditional Christmas card to share with one of your best friends.

Best Bunny Birthday Cards

Today I’m sharing two cards I’ve made using the Best Bunny Bundle. This wasn’t a set which was top of my list but I earnt it free with my credits from Sal-A-Bration and now I’ve used it I love it, that bunny is just so cute!

I chose to combine it with the Twinkle Twinkle DSP which has some lovely subtle patterns which I can see being very versatile. For these cards I chose the star print as wanted to make some birthday cards for younger children. I chose colour combinations of Petal Pink with Soft Seafoam and Night of Navy with Pool Party.

The bunny is sitting on one of the line stamps from Swirly Frames as I didn’t notice the little grass stamp in the Best Bunny set until I was gluing the bunny onto the card. Some of the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins add a little shimmer to the card and match perfectly as the change colour as different light catches them.

So if you’re not sure about this set give it a go, it makes lovely cards and making us the little bunnies is so much fun.
