September 2020 Mystery Stamping Card

September 2020 APPT Blog Hop

APPT header

Welcome to the September 2020 APPT Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called Hello Pumpkin, and it makes the most adorable little treat holders. I used the pieces fro the kit to make a card and a little treat box. My treat box is 4 sided, which is different from the 5 sided one designed by Stampin’ Up! for the kit. I started by popping out all the die cut pieces from their sheets, including all the diamond shapes from the treat holders, saving everything. I used Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue, but you can certainly use the Dimensionals and Glue Dots that came in the kit.

Be sure to hop around to all the stops, so you don’t miss any of the great projects this group has made for you!

Cut along the black lines. Remove the shaded areas.Alternate projects made with the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit 'Hello Pumpkin' for the APPT Blog Hop #stampcandy #paperpumpkin #handmadecards #stampinup

 

 

Stamped with the Hello Pumpkin stamp set:

  • card sentiment in Cajun Craze ink onto a die cut label from the kit
  • pumpkin in Pumpkin pie ink onto the inside of the card base
  • pumpkin face in Tuxedo Black Memento ink over the pumpkin

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • halved a small banner for behind the card sentiment

Colored using a Stampin’ Blends Marker:

  • a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel in Dark Shaded Spruce
  • NOTE: I started with the Old Olive and Mossy Meadow markers, since those are the greens in the kit, but I thought the dark Shaded Spruce showed up better against the black cat

Colored using a Sponge Dauber:

  • bottom edges of the box top in Cajun Craze

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the Whisper White Thick card base with a Bone Folder
  • faint pencil lines drawn onto the Whisper White CS layer, vertical lines 3/4″ apart and horizontal lines 1-1/2″ apart
  • diamond pieces glued onto Whisper White CS layer, using the pencil lines to arrange them evenly
  • any pencil lines that still showed were erased
  • Whisper White CS layer with diamonds glued onto the Cajun Craze CS layer
  • Cajun Craze CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • two halves of the small banner glued onto the back of the sentiment
  • sentiment glued onto a black lace die cut piece from the kit
  • two Cajun Craze flowers glued onto the bottom right corner of the sentiment, then the whole piece adhered onto the card front using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • black curly die cut glued onto the card front under the bottom right corner of the sentiment cluster
  • green rhinestone applied onto the cat using the Take Your Pick tool
  • cat adhered onto the card front above the sentiment using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • small pumpkin die cut adhered onto the card front, next to the cat, using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals

Assembled the treat box:

  • burnished the folds in the box with a Bone Folder
  • 1/4″ flap of box glued onto the inside of the opposite side, to form the body of the box
  • end flaps folded in and glued together one at a time to form the bottom

Assembled the treat box lid:

  • burnished the folds in the lid with a Bone Folder
  • 1/4″ flap glued onto the inside of the opposite side, to form the body of the lid
  • end flaps folded in and glued together one at a time to form the top
  • a diamond and a black curly piece glued onto the back of a small pumpkin, then glued onto the front of the box lid
  • NOTE: Since the box and the lid are the same size (width) it helps to squeeze the top of the box a little bit to get the lid over the top.

September 2020 Home Decor Stampin’ Up! Style Blog Hop

Home Decor Stampin' Up! Style Blog Hop

Welcome to the September 2020 Home Decor Stampin’ Up! Style Blog Hop! We are sharing ideas for seasonal home decor. Today is the first day of Autumn here in the United States. As we say here in the South, Happy Fall, Y’all! I made a little banner out of a bunch of scraps of card stock in Autumnal colors. I used the Gathered Leaves Dies to cut AND emboss the leaves, and the Playful Alphabet Dies for the lettering. And it’s strung on Linen Thread. The acorns in the middle are punched from a scrap of Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper using the Autumn Punch Pack. This is a no-stamping project. Easy Peasy!

Trimming the Town House Andes Mint Treat Holder

Today I’m sharing a Treat Holder that holds 5 Andes Mints. This is one of the projects we made this weekend at our Candy Hearts team meeting. I was inspired by the little treat holders on page 26 of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog. 

If you are reading this in email, some photos may appear blurry, or may not appear at all. Please click here to see the post on my blog.

Wink of Stella can add so much to a project, but it seems almost impossible to photograph. Here are a couple of feeble attempts at getting it to show in a photo. It’s much more visible in person, but without being too glitzy.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Poppy Parade card stock (CS) cut to 2-5/8″ x 2-1/4″, then scored 1/2″ from all four sides
  • strip of Poppy Parade CS cut to 1/2″ x 5″ (feel free to make this longer if you wish)

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one score line at each corner, to create a flap at each corner

Andes Mint Treat Holder Base diagram #stampcandy

Cut using the Home Together Dies:

  • 2 houses from a scrap of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • 2 houses from a scrap of Poppy Parade CS

Colored using Clear Wink of Stella:

  • windows of both DSP houses (allow to dry thoroughly before handling)

Assembled the treat holder:

  • burnished the folds in the base with a Bone Folder
  • corner flaps glued onto the inside of the adjacent sides, to form the open top box
  • ran a Bone Folder along the 1/2″ strip, like you would do to curl ribbon, to soften the fibers (This is so it will curve and not bend.)
  • one end of the strip glued to the inside of one of the shorter sides of the box
  • opposite end of the strip glued to the inside of the opposite short side of the box
  • each die cut DSP house glued onto a die cut Poppy Parade CS house 
  • one house glued onto the outside of each end of the box, only putting along the bottom where it meets the side of the box and a little up the center where it meets the handle
  • This will hold 5 Andes Mints perfectly.

Trimming the Town 3D Pop Up Card

Today I’m sharing another 3D Pop Up Card. When my some members of my Candy Hearts team saw the one I posted last week, which you can see here, they requested we make one at our next team meeting, which was yesterday. For today’s card, we used products from the Trimming the Town Suite: Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and Winter Snow Embossing Folder.
