I just love this Witch Hat Treat Box from the SVGcuts Gimme Candy set.  They are so much fun to decorate and so easy to put together!  I made the rosettes using K & Company epoxy stickers for the centers.

Isn’t this Witch Hat Treat Box adorable!  I love that it is actually a little box, useful and so cute!  It is from the new SVG cuts set Gimme Candy, which was released last night.  The set is free with purchase until next Thursday.  The hat box was so easy and went together very quickly.  I cut a second hat, cut the panels apart and embossed them to add a little dimension.  I also inked the embossed panels with Whisper White.  This was a quick project, but so much fun!  I will definitely be making more of these!

I love this cute apothecary jar cut file from the SVG cuts set Toil and Trouble and the tall version is the perfect size to hold two layers of Smarties, my daughter’s favorite candy!  I decided to make it out of acetate so that she could see the candy inside.  It went together pretty easily, I just hate using glue because I am so messy!  The tabs on the lid are pretty small and you shape it as you go, so there was no way to use my ATG gun, so I had to use my Stampin’ Up! 2-Way Glue.  I am going to make another one for my son also.  He is not a big candy eater, so I’m not sure what I will put in it, but it is just too cute not to make him one!

Today’s challenge at The Paper Cabana is an Inspiration Challenge: Bright Wishes Kanzashi Studio.  While browsing on Etsy one day, I ran across this little shop that carries the prettiest fabric hair clips.  I loved all the beautiful flowers, colors and fabrics used to make these handmade hair ornaments.  The hand-dyed silks are my favorite, the colors and shading are just exquisite.  I chose this Summer Goldfish Hair Clip as the inspiration for my card.  I just love the beautiful shading on the goldfish!

Torn Paper Challenge

Lynn is up this week with a challenge for the Card-a-Day Blog Group, Torn Paper.  First, I have to tell you how much I LOVE this group!  They are such a talented group of women and so encouraging and supportive, I feel so fortunate to be a part of this group!  And now for my challenge card:

Torn Paper Beach

I used Very Vanilla cardstock for the sand.  I tore the strips, sponged with Creamy Caramel and layered on the aqua card base.  I added the AMuse Clouds cardstock (thanks Kay!) for the sky.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the beach umbrella from Summer Set by Jamie Koay in Basic Black and Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Parade Real Red Designer Series Paper.

Rain Boots and Sunshowers

Rain Boots and Sunshowers

Today’s challenge on Splitcoaststampers is the Friday Free for All Challenge F4A126…Weather or Not?  The challenge is to make a card showing your weather.  Well here in South Florida we are in our typical summer weather pattern, lots of rain and lots of sunshine, sometimes at the same time!  I found this cute welly rain boot coloring page and used the print and cut feature on my new Silhouette Cameo to cut them out.   I colored the boots with Stampin’ Up! Yo Yo Yellow and Pool Party Markers and mounted them on a Nestabilities die cut in Gable Green.  I used Gable Green for the card base and a DCWV Summer Mat Stack paper for the background, matted in Pool Party.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Lots of Thoughts in Basic Back, punched with the Stampin’ Up! 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch, matted with the Stampin’ Up! 1 3/8 inch Circle Punch in Gable Green and a Stampin’ Up! Scallop Circle Punch in Yo Yo Yellow.  The ribbon is a scrap that was on a gift, I just knew I’d find the perfect use for it!

Inspiration Challenge Puppy Birthday Card

Inspired Puppy Birthday Card

Today’s Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers is IC345 ~ Sugar Chic Baby , an adorable little Etsy shop.  I chose these cute little Felt Hair Clips as my inspiration for my Puppy Birthday Card.  I was drawn to these hair clips because they reminded me of a blanket stitched jacket my daughter had when she was younger.  When she was in kindergarten, she fell in love with this cute little red polar fleece jacket with black blanket stitching around the edges and a plaid puppy applique with matching plaid buttons.  It was a darling little jacket, but $85, so there was no way I was going to buy it for her!  She begged for that jacket, even asked Santa for it, so I decided to copy it.  It was not hard to make, cost me about $15 and I finished it in one evening.  She wore that jacket for 4 winters!  It was a little long when I made it and I cuffed the sleeves, so as she grew, I just unrolled them.  Not a bad return on my investment!

For my card, I started with a Gable Green card base and added a patterned paper background from an old DCWV Summer Mat Stack.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Circle Punch in Whisper White and the Wide Oval Punch in Chocolate Chip to make the puppy.  I trimmed the shapes to match the inspiration puppy and used a Creamy Caramel Marker for the faux stitching.  I added a black brad for the nose and small googly eyes.  I stamped the PSX sentiment in Island Indigo and matted with a scrap of  blue cardstock cut with a Nestabilities Deckle Rectangle die.  I had to lengthen the die cut to fit my sentiment, which is pretty easy to do with the tan embossing mat.  On the first pass, I slid the embossing mat under one end of the die, between the die and the paper, and ran it through my Big Shot.  I removed the embossing pad and repositioned the die on the uncut end, adjusting for the needed length.  I then moved the embossing mat to the other end, again positioning it between the die and the paper so it did not cut off the end I just cut and ran it through the Big Shot again.  Easy Peasy to adjust the die cut to whatever length you need!

Blossom Punch Hibiscus Challenge Card

Here is my entry for this week’s challenge at The Paper Players,  Challenge #103 – Colors from Anne Marie.  I love this summery color combo and my first thought when I saw it was flowers.

 

Calypso Hibiscus Thank You

I made the Hibiscus flowers using the Stampin’ Up! Blossom Punch.  I punched three flowers in Calypso Coral and cut the petals apart.  I sponged the edges and centers with Calypso Coral and added a few lines with the Calypso Coral Marker.  I glued five petals to a 1/2 inch circle base and added a flower from the Stampin’ Up! Spring Bouquet Punch.  I punched the centers in Daffodil Delight and sponged with Daffodil Delight to add a little definition.  For the leaves, I used the brand new Bigz Die Autumn Accents from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  I cut the leaves in Lucky Limeade, used a bone folder to create the veins and sponged with Lucky Limeade.  For the background panel, I embossed a piece of Daffodil Delight with the Stampin’ Up! Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.  I mounted the background panel on a Calypso Coral card base.  I adhered the leaves and flowers and then added the sentiment.  I stamped the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Banners sentiment in Lucky Limeade on Whisper White, cut it out by hand and layered on the mat I cut with the new Stampin’ Up! Framelits Bitty Banners in Calypso Coral.  I must say, I am really pleased with how this turned out!

Honeycomb Ornament, 19/100

Today’s Sketch Challenge SC387 on Splitcoaststampers was a tough one for me, I am so not a swirly girl!  I was wracking my brain trying to think of what I could use for a swirl and then I remembered the swirl in Stampin’ Up Ocean Commotion.  I also wanted to try the Honeycomb Shapes  technique featured in this week’s Wednesday Tutorial, so I combined the two on this Christmas card. I love to use nontraditional colors on my Christmas cards.  Being in South Florida, I try to infuse a bit of tropical warmth in my Christmas cards, so I chose Bermuda Bay for my card base and mat.  I stamped with VersaMark and embossed the swirl and sentiment with Gold embossing powder.  I punched 24 ornaments from an old DCWV Winter Mat Stack.  I used Taken with Teal to ink the edges of my punches.  Although the tutorial showed to ink the edges after the shapes were glued together, I found it much easier to do before hand.  The only thing I would have done differently is to ink the top part of the ornaments in gold.  I assembled my punches in groups of 6 and then glued the four stacks together.  I found that by making smaller stacks, it was easier to keep the shapes from shifting out of alignment.  This is a fun technique and a great way to extend the use of your paper punches!
