GINGHAM TEA BAG TREAT HOLDER!

I had my Summer Sizzler Catalogue Launch on this weekend for the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  It was a fun time sharing lots of the gorgeous new products and samples with them.

I will share some of the cards I have made over the next couple of weeks.  Today I thought I would share with you the little Treat Holders I made for everyone who came to Thank them for coming.

These cute little Treat Holders are made using the new Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.  The paper is 6″x6″ (15.2cmx15.2cm) and are just the right size for these.  I made them in some of the different colours.  I took a photo of 3 of the different colour ones.  I have also used the lovely Organdy Ribbon that is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration. I will tell you how to make them below.

To decorate the front of them I stamped one of the butterfly stamps from Butterfly Gala set using Black Memento ink and these were then coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  Using the Butterfly punch makes life a lot easier.  No fussy cutting them. 🙂 The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set.  I stamped the “THANKS” on to Whisper White and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.  I then could trim off each end. I find this a much easier way of doing it.

To make the Treat Holders

1. Take your 15.2cm x15.2cm (6″x6″) piece of paper.  I have used the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.

Line the left hand edge of the paper on the 6.7cm (2 5/8″) mark on the Envelope Punch Board.

Punch the paper and score on the score grid of the Punch Board.

2. Turn the paper 90′.  Line up the little score tab on the previous score line.  Punch and score.

Turn the paper another 90′.  Line the tab mark on the score line, punch and score.  Turn again and repeat.

3. Round the corners using the corner rounder on the punch board.  Fold on the score lines. Decide which side you want showing on the outside, place that side facing down when folding.

NB: In the photo below I hadn’t turned it over at this point.

Fold up the bottom tab.  Place adhesive on the 2 outside edges of this tab. I used Snail adhesive.  Fold in one side tab and adhere down. Before folding in the other side tab place adhesive on the inside bottom edge of this tab.  Fold over and adhere down.

Decorate as you like. To add ribbon, punch a hole in the top tab and thread through your ribbon.

This is a great size for a Tea Bag packet, chocolate, Gift card or other treat.

Enjoy.

Jenny

However you spend the day be safe and while under the tree might be full of gifts and treasures I hope you take time to think on the greatest treasure given to us in the gift of Jesus.

Happy Christmas.

FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS CARD

The card above was made for my 12 Weeks of Christmas series but, well… I ran out of weeks to share it. It’s a great opportunity to share it with you now for my Christmas wishes to you.  Made with the Farmhouse Christmas Bundle which is sadly not being carried over, I wanted to show that you can use this set without having to colour it all the time.  I stamped the house a number of times over the Crumb Cake card base.  The paper is from Under The Mistletoe DSP.  You can stamp directly on to the silver Foil but remember to use Stazon.

While this card is very simple I deliberated on it for so long in how to work the sentiment.  Maybe an hour just on that. How many different ways could I work it. Seriously why can’t I just go with it!  It worked out in the end with just a strip of Real Red Satin Ribbon to finish. Which I should have just stuck with in the beginning.  Do you have days like that?? 🙂

Thanks for visiting,

Happy Christmas.

HUNG WITH CARE STOCKING CARDS – AND A WINNER!

I think this stamp set hasn’t had much airing around the blogosphere.  That’s a bit sad.  It is a cute one. Hung With Care is a Host set found in the Holiday Catalogue.  I must say I haven’t used it near enough.  Today I thought it should have it’s turn in the limelight.

This first one uses the lovely All is Bright Designer Series Paper. You don’t need too much on the card when you use this paper.  The stocking is stamped in Garden Green.  For the sentiment I heat embossed that in white on black card and then punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.

This card was one from one of my Christmas Stamp A Stack Classes recently. The stocking was stamped in Garden Green and the white oval card was layered on to Silver Glimmer Paper. The Garden Green card mat was embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  The Real Red Twine is retired.  I don’t usually use retired products in classes but I ran out of the thin Red Ribbon.  Adding a small strip of Under The Mistletoe DSP adds a little contrast to it.  Everyone did like making this card I think.  It’s nice when you can make up 3 of these cards in class in a hurry and they are ready to go.

BLING WINNER

A few posts ago I posted a little giveaway for reaching 50 Wednesday’s WOW!  Today I can announce the winner of the Bling Pack.

Congratulations Joy Stewart.  I will drop you an email shortly to arrange them to be sent to you.

Thanks for stopping by,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #47 – MAKING UP A SHIMMER PAINT SPRAY!

This weekend is my Shimmer Paint Technique class.  I have been having lots of fun sponging and spraying this stuff around.  For our Wednesday’s WOW! #47 I thought I would share with you how to make the Shimmer Spray up.  Also, I will show you one of the cards we will make in class using this spray.

MAKE YOUR SHIMMER PAINT SPRAY

Add a small amount of the Shimmer Paint in a Stampin’ Spritzer bottle.  I added about 1cm, or approximately 1/2″.  The more paint the more intense the spray will be. Then top up the bottle with Rubbing Alcohol.  The Rubbing Alcohol can be picked up at most Chemists (or Drug Stores).  You can add water instead of alcohol but it doesn’t dry as quickly.  Give it a good shake to mix them together.  Before you use this each time if it has sat for a while then be sure to shake it.  That’s all there is to it.

TIP: When you are spraying your card check which direction the nozzle is as to where it will spray …  You might like to spray inside a box or cover the table to avoid any random spraying.

The further away you hold the spritzer the finer the mist will be.  Bring the Spritzer in closer and it will be more heavier.

This is the card we will be creating on the weekend.  (By the way there are still spaces if you are a Wollongong local and want to join us. Check the previous post for class details).

I have used the Southern Serenade stamp set and stamped it on to Shimmery White cardstock.  That gives extra sparkle but also is good for the liquid used.  I stamped the images in Black Stazon and coloured them with the Watercolor Pencils.   After it was finished I spritzed the card.  This spray is using the Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint.

You can see the Shimmer Paints on page 38 of the Holiday catalogue or view them in store ->HERE.  Scroll down the page to see each one.  There are 4 colours: Vegas Gold, Bright Copper, Champagne Mist (which is a silver) and Frost White.

Get your Free Sponge Dauber for each pot of Shimmer Paint you order from me this week.  Each pot is $14.
