Looking for a neat treat box for any occasion? This is one we did at stamp club. It was one of the favorite projects we did this month. Thanks to Kelly Acheson for sharing her idea!
We used the BOX #2 XL DIE for the bottom part of the project. The box actually makes a lid, but we didn't use that part of it. I measured a 3" x 12" piece of BLACK CARDSTOCK and then scored it at 5 3/8" and 6 5/8" using the NEW SIMPLY SCORED TOOL. That is the bomb! It has these little markers on it that help you make your project simple!
The designer paper on all of these photos is from the FRIGHTFUL SIGHT pack. Need some great Halloween paper.....this is the place to get it. Love the colors used in this pack: CHERRY COBBLER, CAJUN CRAZE, OLD OLIVE, BASIC BLACK, BASIC GRAY, WHISPER WHITE. Take a look at the black scrunched up pieces inside the box. Can you guess what that is? I made my own "stuffing!" Take some scraps of black cardstock and run it through the CRIMPER. Then cut thin strips with the TABLE TOP PAPER CUTTER (my all-time fav paper cutter!) Scrunch it up in your hand and throw it in the box. You can now always coordinate your projects!
We added a fun embellishment on the front of each project. Using the coordinating punches makes it go together quickly. We used the 1 1/4" CIRCLE PUNCH, 1 3/8" CIRCLE PUNCH, 1 3/4" SCALLOP CIRCLE PUNCH. See how they all layer so well together?
No matter what color combination you use from this pack...it all works together for a FRIGHTFUL SIGHT!
This is a fun idea for Halloween...but think of all the options to make these for WEDDINGS, BIRTHDAY PARTIES, any gathering! They would make a really neat placecard at your next special dinner.
One more beauty from this SPICE CAKE PRODUCT SUITE to share with you for now. If you have been following my posts for the past couple of days I have been sharing similar products. This is the same products....GENTLY FALLING stamp set and SPICE CAKE paper, ink, etc.
The colors in the suite are SOFT SUEDE, MORE MUSTARD, POOL PARTY, PEAR PIZZAZZ, RIVER ROCK and VERY VANILLA. Thanks to Sarah Simon for creating this beautiful card. Are you getting that FALL feeling?
This project features EARLY EXPRESSO and MORE MUSTARD. Lots of details to catch here: the torn corner in the upper right, the WORD WINDOW punch folded around the left with a brad in it, the HOUNDSTOOTH embossing folder on the EARLY EXPRESSO layer, the new RIBBON used.
This ribbon is new...it is called QUILTED SATIN. It is available in EARLY EXPRESSO and CHERRY COBBLER. The stamp set has 12 stamps with it. It is a 2-step set so you have lots of variety with it.
I have more ideas to share with this product suite....stay tuned!
As I mentioned yesterday I am going to share a few samples with this great product suite called SPICE CAKE. The colors are SOFT SUEDE, MORE MUSTARD, POOL PARTY, PEAR PIZZAZZ, RIVER ROCK and VERY VANILLA.
This is the card I designed:
I featured the MORE MUSTARD and SOFT SUEDE as my colors. The oval frame from a 2-pack of embossing folders called DESIGNER FRAMES. You get the oval and a rectangle. Of course they coordinate with our punches to make it super slick. The stamp set is GENTLY FALLING (set of 12 stamps).
How do you like the ribbon? It is actually fabric that I ripped. It coordinates with the SPICE CAKE suite. You get 3 pieces of fabric. That is featured on page 18 of the MINI CATALOG.
I also used the HOUNDSTOOTH EMBOSSING FOLDER on one layer to give it just a bit more texture.
Have a great day! Lori :)
Order anytime online...or email me with your questions/order.
If you have the Holiday Mini Catalog turn to page 16-17 to check out the SPICE CAKE product suite. It definitely is catching people's attention! I just love it....and love the fact that there is a hint of blue with these colors. The colors are SOFT SUEDE, MORE MUSTARD, POOL PARTY, PEAR PIZZAZZ, RIVER ROCK and VERY VANILLA. Yummy!! I was fortunate to receive a variety of samples with the product suite...so guess what...I am going to share the ideas with you too!
This card was made by Dianna Richards. Thanks Dianna! The punch used in the upper right is the POSTAGE STAMP PUNCH. Do you love the color combination like I do? The ribbon is POOL PARTY RUFFLED RIBBON and the CROCHET LACE. The stamp set is called GENTLY FALLING.
You are going to get to see more samples of this product suite...as I think it is great!
Guess I am in the mood for birthday cards....still celebrating my sister's birthday :)
My very good friend Dianna Richards made this card...............thanks girl! She used the VINTAGE WALLPAPER EMBOSSING FOLDER on 2 layers for this card. The colors are POOL PARTY, CHOCOLATE CHIP and WILD WASABI...very awesome together!
Take note of the MARKERING TECHNIQUE used on the birthday cake. Color with your Stampin' Up! markers on the stamp....then huff on the stamp so it gets moist....then stamp on your paper. A fun technique!
Have a great day! Lori :)

Time to clean out some of these photos that I have been storing on my hard drive. Let's see if I can inspire you! Many of these are from one of the gals in my group "All Schuch Up" stampers. Thanks Julie! I think most of them are yours...
Have a great day! Lori :)
