Holiday Catalog 2014

Fall Fest Take Out Box

Having a little fun with the Takeout Boxes. You can find the Takeout Boxes on page 10 of the Holiday Catalog.  Symbolic of deliciousness, these takeout boxes are begging for you to add a personal touch and fill them with goodies. Bottom measures 3-1/2" x 4-1/4" and they are 2-1/2" high. Food safe, acid free.

Pumpkin_takeout_box

I stamped the pumpkins and faces from the Fall Fest Photopolymer stamp set.  The tag uses the Halloween Street single stamp and I wrapped some Pumpkin Pie 3/4" Chevron Ribbon around it for a bit more color.

Pumpkin_takeout_box_top

I inked up the stamp with Tangerine Tango and basic Black Stampin' Write Mrakers.  The cute little bats are from the Holiday Home Photopolymer stamp set.

Fun Fall Framelits Dies - Ghost Treat

I received this super cute treat from my dear friend Laurie Krauss at Founder's Circle and I love it!!  Not just that it is filled with chocolate nuggets but it is so stinkin' cute!

FunfallframelitsghostgiftShe wrapped each nugget with a 1x3 strip of the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper, placed it in the box and wrapped the box with some 1/8" Silver Ribbon.

Here is a close up, she ran the empty flat box through the Big Shot with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The ghost was cut from our Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and colored yellow with some Daffodil Delight Ink and an Aqua Painter.  I hand drew the face with a black Sharpie Marker.

Merry Everything Bundle and Fall Fest

Festival_of_trees_fall

Saw this layout online and thought it would be a great one to use with different stamp sets and different Designer Series Papers.  I chose to use new products from the Holiday Catalog so I started with the Fall Fest stamp set and the coordinating Fun Fall Framelits

These two products are offered in a bundle to save you 15%.
Fall Fest Photopolymer Bundle

I added a strip of the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper across the bottom of my Very Vanilla layer and then topped it with a line of Crushed Curry striped Washi Tape from the Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape.

The leaves were die cut with the Fun Fall Framelits and then I stamped them in various colors.  Since the stamp set is one of our Photopolymer sets, this was super easy as I could see exactly where to place the image.  I placed the leaves and some of the Brown Sugar Sequins from the 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment around my greeting from Merry Everything.

After looking at this card in my photo, I was inspired to stamp the greeting and punch it out with the coordinating punch.  The Merry Everything stamp set and the Note Tag Punch can also be purchased in a bundle.

These products are offered in a bundle to save you 15%.

Halloween Window Card

This was my Fall Swap with the Controlfreaks and I had so much making them. I started with the Holiday Home stamp set and messed around with the placement of the images until I had just what I wanted. Then I cranked out 25, here is a picture of half of them.

Holiay_home_cf_groupI love the Candy Corn print sheets included in the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper pack.  If you join my Holiday Catalog Product Shares, you will get some of this paper.

Holiay_home_cfThe spooky house is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Tangerine Tango card stock.  I colored the roof with the Smoky Slate Blendabilities.  I stamped the house twice so I could cut one out and pop it up for some dimension. 

The "happy halloween" greeting is also included in the Holiday Home stamp set.  I stamped it on a strip of our Vellum Card Stock in Jet Black StazOn Ink and attached it to the inside of the window.
TIP:  Use the StazOn ink on our Vellum.  I didn't get good results using Memento Tuxedo Black on the Vellum.

I colored one of our Pearl Basic Jewels with the darkest marker in the Calypso Coral Blendabilities set and it matches Tangerine Tango really well.  I added the pearl to one of our Candy Dots Brad Bases for a little added interest.

Holiay_home_cf_closeThe window was created with our Circles Collection Framelits and the front and back of the card each measure 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.  I scored each piece at 1/2", 1", 4-1/2" and 5".  I folded them opposite to create the window card.  Here is a top view of it.

Seasonally Scattered and the Baby Wipe Technique

I thought the Seasonally Scattered set would look really cool using the Baby Wipe Technique so I tried it.

I folded two Baby Wipes in half and placed them in a plastic tray.  I added drops of Crushed Curry, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze to create a striped pattern.  I then inked up my Thanks stamp with the wipe and stamped it onto sheets of Whisper White.

Seasonally_scattered_group

I took the stamped sheets of Whisper White and made several different cards with them.  Here are a couple.

Seasonally_scattered_honeyribbon

I left the sheet as is and matted it to a layer of Mossy Meadow, wrapped some Hello Honey Satin Stitched Ribbon around it and then adhered it to a Cajun Craze card base.

Seasonally_scattered_blackberrypennant

For this card, I cut the stamped image out with the Banners Framelits Set, added a skinny strip of Gold Foil Sheets to the left edge, and wrapped our Gold Bakers Twine around it adding a Gold Basic Metal Button.  To finish it off, I added a chunk of our Gold Sequin Trim.

Brightbeautiful

I didn't use the Bright & Beautiful set on this card as it wasn't available when I made it but I am ordering it for sure!!

This card was one of the projects in my Be a Big Shot at Home Class in July, I send supplies for projects to the participants each month for four months and at the end of the four months, they receive a gift certificate for $150 to purchase anything they want out of the catalog.  We will start this calss again in November.

Star_card_front

Star_card_side

Instructions:  
To create the base for the Star Card, cut a sheet of card stock in half so it measures 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 and fold it in half like you are making a card.  
Place the largest Star Framelit over the card stock so the fold line is inside one of the points (see photo) and run it through the Big Shot.

Star_card_cutout


Cut another star of the same size and adhere it over the folded card to cover the missing point.

I used the Be the Star stamp set that coordinates with the Stars Framelits.  I  stamped the small group of stars in Melon Mambo on the Melon Mambo star frame.  
I also stamped the coordinating image for the Crushed Curry star in Crushed Curry.  
Add Stampin' Dimensionals that are cut in half to the backside of the Melon Mambo star as shown in the pic below and attach it to the Crushed Curry Star so your image shows through the middle.

Star_card_melon

Adhere the stacked stars to main star card.
Stamp greeting in Pumpkin Pie on the small banner and attach it to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Attach the smallest Melon Mambo star to the inside of the card.
