Meant To Be Mini Gable Treat Boxes

Today I’m sharing some treat boxes I made up for my February Candy Hearts team meeting. We had a small meeting this month so I only made 6. I just love the Lustrous White Mini Gable Boxes (they come in silver, too.) They have a lot of “real estate” to decorate if you want to, but they are just as lovely plain, with their shimmery white surfaces. I took the colors from the All My Love Designer Series Paper, which I had originally intended to use on the boxes, but then changed my mind. I used a Sponge Brayer to color the bottom half of each box, darker at the bottom and lighter at the top. Then I glued on the cut out pieces. I filled the boxes with assorted Dove chocolates, so I’m guessing the Hearts who missed the meeting this month are feeling a little rueful about now.

Lasting Lily and Lily Framelits Sympathy Card

The Lily Framelits Dies will be available in March. They coordinate with the Lasting Lily stamp set, which has been very popular. It’s really gorgeous and has lots of sentiments for times when you just don’t know what to say. And with the dies, you can do so much more with the stamps! I made a pretty simple card for today. I wanted it to be calm and soothing.

So Hoppy Hop Along Frogs

My card today is made with a Sale-a-bration item – the So Hoppy Together stamp set – and a coordinating item that will be available in March – the Hop Along Framelits Dies. I’m so excited that Stampin’ Up! is bringing out die sets to go with the Sale-a-bration stamp sets! This set has been so popular, and I know you’ll want the dies to go along with it. Coordinating dies or punches make any stamp set so much more versatile.

…and here it is open. Notice anything?


So Hoppy stamp set, Hop Around Framelits Die, and Dot to Dot embossing folder by Stampin' Up! Card made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

Unfortunately, this wasn’t on purpose. I finished the card and took it upstairs to photograph it, when I realized I had adhered the card front upside down. Oops! If I had glued the Whisper White cardstock piece onto the inside before going upstairs, I would have noticed it, and may have fixed it then. But once I walked allllll the way upstairs, well, you know. 

I may send it to someone as is (with the white cardstock inside) or I may cut off the front and adhere it to another card base. I’ll decide that when the times comes.
