Bone Appétit for APPT Blog Hop 09-2019

APPT headerIt’s time for the APPT Blog Hop for September! This month’s kit is called Bone Appétit, and it makes adorable treat boxes. I used the kit to decorate one of the boxes a little differently from the directions in the Bone Appétit kit, and to make a card that mimics the dots on the box. I love the intricate die cut “webs” of bones. And the die cut skeletons are so cute! The one on my card is holding a sign with the greeting, “Happy Halloween,” which is just one of several great sentiments in the Bone Appétit stamp set. I’ll be using this stamp set a lot, since our Halloween party theme this year is Bones!

I’m sorry there have been several days in the past couple weeks when I didn’t get a blog post done. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that during this time of year our house is consumed with Halloween party prep. There’s little room in the whole place to walk because of all the boxes and totes packed full of skeletons, skulls, bones, etc., as well as other Halloween goodies. There’s a lot to do and not a lot of time left to do it. So please forgive me if I’m not as present online as usual in the next few weeks.

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!

S

Here’s what I made:

  • DSP cut to 1-1/2″ x 5″
  • Copper Foil Sheet cut to 1-1/2″ x 4-3/4″

Stamped with the Gather Together stamp set:

  • large leaf in Pretty Peacock ink onto a scrap of Pretty Peacock CS
  • sentiment in Versamark ink on the leaf, then heat embossed in copper

Cut using the Gathered Leaves Dies:

  • stamped leaf
  • assortment of embossed leaves from scraps of Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, and Pretty Peacock CS and Copper Foil Sheet

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • one end of each of the 3 paper strips

Assembled the project:

  • adhered the 3 tags together using Snail
  • adhered the assorted leaves onto the tags and each other using Snail
  • large stamped leaf adhered onto the leaf “pile” using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • tag assembly glued onto the front of the bag
  • 3 Pretty Peacock Faceted Dots applied onto the bag, at bottom right

APPT Blog Hop for August 2019 – Gift of Fall

APPT header

It’s time for the APPT 08-2019 Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called Gift of Fall and it is a beauty. There are lots and lots of die cut pieces to use, so you can mix and match them in many ways. There is also an Add-On Bundle available with coordinating note cards and envelopes. I used one of the note cards to create a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card, and I used tags from the kit to line a Clear Tiny Treat Box (I just love these little boxes; they’re so versatile!) Be sure to hop all the way around to all the stops of the APPT 08-2019 Blog Hop to see all the wonderful alternate projects for this month’s kit.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Blackberry Bliss card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • 3 colorful tags from the kit cut to 2″ x 4″ and scored in half at 2″
  • a note card separated into two pieces, the front and the back, cutting away the score line
  • excess from the left end of the small banner with the card sentiment (after stamping)*

Stamped with the Gift of Fall stamp set:

  • box sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink onto a small banner from the kit
  • *card sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink onto the right end of a small banner from the kit (then cut away the excess at the left end)

Cut using a 1/2″ Circle Punch:

  • finger notch in the side of one of the trimmed colorful tags, so it will be at the front of the box when inserted

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the larger (Blackberry Bliss) card base with a Bone Folder
  • Crumb Cake leaves glued onto the front of the card base along the left side and the top
  • note card front adhered onto the front of the larger card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • sentiment glued onto the note card front, near the bottom left
  • gold sequins applied onto the wreath image on the note card front
  • note card back glued onto the inside of the larger card base
  • vellum piece glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the box with a Bone Folder, and folded it into the box shape
  • inserted two of the trimmed colorful tags to line the sides (I inserted them so the two blue ends would meet each other, and the two red ends would meet each other. I made sure the punched finger notch lined up with the notch in the front of the box.)
  • inserted the third trimmed colorful tag into the box so it lined the top and continued down the back of the box (inside the piece already there lining the sides)
  • 2 vellum pieces glued onto the back of the small banner with the box sentiment
  • about 8 or 9 Crumb Cake leaves glued onto the back of the vellum pieces
  • sentiment banner/vellum/leaves adhered onto the top of the box using Tear & Tape (you can use the glue dots that came in the kit)
  • 3 gold sequins applied onto the vellum pieces

The Gift of Fall for August 2019 PPPBH

It’s time for the August 2019 PPPBH! This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit is called The Gift of Fall* and it’s a real beauty. There are so many colors, and so many pretty pieces to decorate the gift bags in the kit. There is also an add-on kit subscribers can purchase that has cards and envelopes. I used both to create my projects for today.

*What we in the US call Fall, folks in other English speaking parts of the world call Autumn.

Here’s what I did:

Products in italics will be available beginning September 4, 2019.

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • tag from a note card front, using a white tag from the kit as a guide

Stamped with the Gift of Fall stamp set:

  • berry sprigs in Golden Glitz and Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic inks onto the note card front and the tag front
  • sentiment in Merry Merlot ink onto the label
  • NOTE: The Delicata Metallic inks take longer to dry than the classic inks, so I heat set the stamped images with my heat tool. The shimmer of these inks doesn’t show well in the photos. They have a lovely glimmer to them which is subtler than heat embossing.
