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!

Boo To You Frame Decor

Today is my first time participating in the Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop. I used the Boo to You stamp set, Word Wishes Dies, and Monster Bash Designer Series Paper to create this greeting for my foyer table.  I just love the Boo to You stamp set’s three adorable little monsters. Now I realize that “adorable monsters” might seem like an oxymoron, but these guys really are cute.

Boo to You Everything Festive Coffin Treat Box

For today’s project, I used the Everything Festive and Boo to You stamp sets to decorate a Coffin Box. The Everything Festive stamp set has sentiments for several different holidays and occasions, and the Boo to You stamp set has three adorable little monsters. I used Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the little zombie guy, and I used a couple of the Assorted Googly Eyes to really make him pop!

Here are the stamp sets:

Still Scenes for OSAT Blog Hop – Welcome to Our Holiday Catalog

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop headerIt’s time for the OSAT Blog Hop for September! This month we’re featuring products from the brand new 2019 Holiday Catalog. I used the Still Scenes Bundle (Still Scenes stamp set and Snow Globe Scenes Dies) on page 43 to make a shaker card. The Snow Globe Shaker Domes make it easy – there is adhesive on both sides of the rims.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Still Scenes stamp set:

  • outer sentiment in Versamark ink onto a scrap of Basic Black CS, then heat embossed in silver
  • inner sentiment in black ink onto the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base

Cut using the Snow Globe Scenes Dies:

  • trees and 2 deer from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet
  • hole for shaker dome from the Basic Black CS layer
  • snow globe base from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet (one detailed and solid)

Cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies:

  • heat embossed sentiment
  • slightly larger piece from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet
  • NOTE: There isn’t a die in the set to cut the sentiment as I wanted to, so I used a larger die and cut it twice as shown below. I cut the Silver Foil piece the same way.

Embossed using the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder:

  • Basic Black CS layer (be sure to emboss it after die cutting)

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • trees and one deer adhered onto the front of the card base using Snail, so they will show through the hole in the Basic Black CS layer
  • adhesive backing pulled off the top edge of the shaker dome, the dome put through the hole in the Basic Black CS layer, and adhered onto the back side, 
  • Snowflake Sequins laid over the trees and deer
  • adhesive backing pulled off the bottom edge of the shaker dome, and Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base, so the sequins are trapped under the shaker dome
  • NOTE: Be sure you press well to seal around the shaker dome. I left it a bit loose and the sequins stick to the edges.
  • detailed base adhered onto the solid base using Snail, then adhered onto the Basic Black CS layer using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • front sentiment adhered onto the die cut Silver Foil, then the foil adhered onto the Basic Black CS layer using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • second deer adhered onto the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base using Snail, and any excess trimmed away using Paper Snips
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Spooktacular Coffin Treat Box

Today’s project is a fun little treat box shaped like a coffin. Stampin’ Up!’s new Coffin Boxes come pre-cut and scored, so you only have to glue the corners to assemble them. There’s a window in the coffin lid so you can see its occupant, a vampire from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP.) The coffin is lined with more of the DSP, and the spiders on top are cut from a Black Foil Sheet using the Wicked Dies.
