Gift Box Punch Board

Today’s video is a tutorial on the Gift Box Punch Board. I know for sure I will be getting a lot of use out of this one as I’m not really good at figuring out measurements and making up box designs on my own. I already plan on using it for little treat boxes around the holidays to deliver fudge to my nieces and nephews as it’s their favorite every Christmas season.

Here is a video on how to use the Gift Box Punch Board. It will be available starting tomorrow.

It’s all about the shoes

Happy Friday,
Even witches need a good pair of shoes. I think this is the cutest sentiment ever for a Halloween Card. I made the card size 3-1/2″ x 7″ and will be making an envelope with my punch board to go with it. This is another sneak peek at a stamp set coming out next week called Tee-Hee-Hee. So stinkin’ cute. I linked the current supplies below and will have a link to the stamp set next week when it’s released.

The Designer Series Papers are from a few different collections. I used my Starbusrt Sayings Dies and Circles Collection Dies to create the sentiment area. I was feeling it needed a little something extra so I took it to my sewing machine and did a stitched outline. supplies

Haunted House Card

Hi All,
Yep, I’m still on a fall kick and quickly heading into Christmas…I love it. Today’s card shows the Homemade Holiday Bundle that also comes out next week. I love this set, fall, halloween, christmas…oh so much you can do with this one.
I usually wait until I’m ready to give the card to stamp out the sentiment on the inside. For this one I’ll white emboss it and then use a white gel pen to sign the inside.
Haunted House

Card details: Measures 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, Card base: Basic Black CS, Mat Layer: Lullaby DSP, Stamped Area: Whisper White CS. I used my Smokey Slate and Daffodil Delight Blendabilites to color in the haunted house, then ran them through my Big Shot with the coordinating dies. Before adding the houses to my card front, I stamped out the little ghost and used Crystal Effects to give him some dimension. The fall tree was stamped out with early espresso ink and the leaves with pumpkin pie and cajun craze inks. Added some spooky bats to the top and tied a piece of black chevron ribbon to finish off the card.

Back to School Card

Hi Everyone,
Today I’m going ol’ school and just posting a card with no video. I’ve been having a ton of fun playing with my goodies and working on different projects.

This card is for young Mr. Thomas. He’s heading back to school in two weeks and starts 7th grade this year in the Honors 1 program. I wanted to give him a little card with a note to tell him how proud I am of  him.

Back to school 1

The card is a 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ card done with crumb cake CS as the base. I used the Maritime DSP for the pattern paper and then die cut some crumb card CS with the File Tab die set. I used my dictionary background stamp along with the spiral border punch to create the torn page and tucked that behind the file tab. I also added the “note” banner using the Tap, Tap, Tap stamp set. Back to school 2I also added some older ribbon that reminds me of a jean material to give the card a little extra touch. I just wrapped it around the file tab piece and then tied it off with some linen thread.

For the sentiment I used the Rotary Alphabet stamp for “back to” and then the Skinny Mini Alphabet stamps for “school”.
Back to school 3

To finish it off I splattered some crumb cake ink.
