Come to Gather Gift Bag for Autumn IRBH

inKing Royalty Blog Hop, September 2019, Autumn

It’s time for the Inking Royalty Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme in Autumn. And what could be more Autumnal than beautifully colored leaves? For my project, I used products from the Come to Gather Suite to decorate a gift bag from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. (You can see another project I made using these bags here.) From the suite, I used the Gather Together bundle (Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies) and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

I was going to use the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack as well, but I got so carried away with the leaves, I didn’t think it needed it. I used each embossed leaf die (3 in the set) to cut two each of four colors – and I used 18 of the 24 leaves I cut! Guess I just couldn’t stop until I had a big leaf pile! Doesn’t it make you want to jump in and scatter them?

Be sure to hop all the way around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great projects from this talented group!

A Little Smile for the PPP Blog Hop

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog HopS

It’s time for the June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called A Little Smile, and it everything you need for 16 gift cards & envelopes and a box to keep them in. I’ve used the kit components to create a full size card and a tag for a treat bag. 

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the great alternate projects this group has made using this month’s A Little Smile kit!

S

Here’s what I made:

I’m out of town at a craft retreat and don’t have my lightbox, so my photos look different than usual.

The card: I tried to create a reflection of mountains and sky. It isn’t a perfect mirrored image, but I think you get the idea.A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

 

The treat bag: I made a simple tag that matched the card, and attached it using a copper library clip from the Tags & More Accessory Kit. A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

  • sentiment in Old Olive ink onto the smallest trimmed card front

Time for Tags Treat Bag

Today’s project is a quick and easy treat bag, perfect for those occasions when you need a way to present a little gift in a hurry. The tag is made with the new Time For Tags host stamp set and the new Timeless Label Punch. It’s heat embossed in gold, then clipped onto the top of a Striped Treat Bag using a Gold Library Clip with a piece of ribbon on it. Boom! Done!

Look at all the tag images in this set! And they all coordinate with the Timeless Label Punch. You could stamp and punch out a bunch of them to have on hand for last minute occasions. Just clip them onto a bag, as I’ve done today, or glue them onto a card.

The Striped Treat Bags and Gold Library Clips will not carry over to the new catalog, so get those now before they’re gone. The Gold Edged Very Vanilla Ribbon will be in the new catalog, as well as the Silver Edged Whisper White version – woohoo!

Candy Cane Season Treat Bag

Today I’m sharing a super quick and easy treat idea. I stamped directly onto a Santa’s Bag using the Candy Cane Season stamp set and Real Red ink. It isn’t waterproof, but as long as it stays dry it’s makes a great little gift. I cut the tag using the Everyday Label Punch, and tied it onto the bag using Garden Green Baker’s Twine.

APPT Blog Hop for May 2018 – Manly Moments

It’s time for the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop for May! I aways love this time, because I get to take something predesigned and put my spin on it. This month’s kit is called Manly Moments and includes the makings for cards with manly hues of greens and browns. I’ve made a birthday card and small gift holder, perfect for a manly man. Be sure to check out all the stops on the hop, because you don’t want to miss any of the great alternate projects made by this group.

Here’s what I made:

I tucked a little extra “green” into the gift holder:

Manly Moments May 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit alternate projects for APPT Blog Hop #stampcandy

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • a 4-1/8″ x 1/2″ strip of plaid paper from the inside of an envelope
  • a 1″ x 1-1/2″ piece of the same plaid paper
  • a 1″ x 7″ strip of wood paper from the inside of a different envelope, then scored down the length 1/4″ from each side, and across the strip at 3-1/2″ 
  • four piece of Mossy Meadow card stock (CS) to 2″ x 4-1/4″

Stamped with the Manly Moments stamp set:

  • stamped “happy” and “birthday” in Mossy Meadow ink onto a shield
  • stamped the lines in Shaded Spruce ink onto the same shield
  • stamped “for all you do” in Mossy Meadow ink onto a white banner

Cut using Paper Snips

  • notched the ends of the Plaid strip (or you could use the Banner Triple Punch)
  • snipped lots of little cuts along each long side the wood paper strip, only to the score line on each side
  • used a shield as a guide to cut the ends of the 4 Mossy Meadow CS pieces to fit inside the holder
  • cut other end of the 4 Mossy Meadow CS  pieces about  2″ down to “shred” it (or you could use your paper trimmer to cut every 1/8″, or you could use fringe scissors if you have them)

Created the forest on the front of the Soft Sea Foam card base:

  • used the negative space of a tree die cut and sponge daubers to color each “layer”
  • used Mossy Meadow, Shaded Spruce, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Granny Apple Green, Garden Green, and Tranquil Tide inks
  • started at the top and worked my way down

Assembled the card:

  • adhered a mountain die cut to the bottom of the front of the card base
  • glued the notched plaid strip to the card base
  • adhered the stamped shield over the plaid strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals

Assembled the holder:

  • glued one snipped side of the wood paper strip to the back edges of a shield, starting with the crosswise score line at the bottom tip of the shield.
  • glued the other snipped side to another shield, the same way
  • snip off any extra wood paper at the top, or fold it inside and glue it in place
  • glued the 1″ x 1-1\2″ plaid paper to the front shield
  • glued the stamped banner over the plaid paper piece. I should have adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals, but I wasn’t thinking and glued it down flat.
  • crinkled the shredded parts of the Mossy Meadow CS, then stuffed them into the box
  • inserted some folded money in between the Mossy Meadow CS pieces in the holder
