Got Treats Trio

Okay, so I am really groovin' on this new color combination I told you about in THIS POST. I took the card I previously made and changed it just slightly (I had to take my piece of sample ribbon off of it!), and did two more projects in the same colors. I managed to get this picture taken outside between gusts of wind, and it really helps you see the true colors a lot better. However, no matter what I do I can't seem to get a good read on the Concord Crush--it's not a midnight blue like the pictures seem to suggest, in real life it actually looks dark purple just like Concord Grape Jelly. And when you crumple it to give it texture, it gets an almost satiny sheen to it, it is super awesome! [Click on the picture to see it can see the detail so much more clearly]

Check out the handle of that pumpkin treat basket--I braided together three 1/4" strips (one Peach Parfait, one Pear Pizzazz, one Concord Crush). I was so proud of me! The stump at the top of the pumpkin is made using Modern Label Punch. It's just one punch, cut in half, then one of the halves cut in half again lenghtwise, and you just sort of stack them. You do have to flip one of the skinny pieces over to make it work, but it's super easy. All the highlights on the punches and die-cut pieces are done with the In Color markers, which come as a set!

How cool is it that you can use the same supplies to make all three of these projects!?! And that's not all, these projects use only ONE image from the Got Treats stamp set (wood 119114 $24.95, clear 120627 $17.95), pictured below. Stick around and I'll show you how you can take this same idea and use it for the other 5 occasion images in the set...and none of these ideas are even using the Milk Carton die, which is what the Got Treats stamp set was designed for!

Stampin' Supplies: Got Treats stamp set; In Color Assortment Stampin' Write markers which includes Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, and Concord Crush; In Color Assortment of card stock including same previously mentioned color; Whisper White card stock, 1-1/4" Square Punch, 1-3/8" Square Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Ovals Die, Fancy Favor Die, Sticky Strip, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, staples (for the handle, or you could use brads if you want).

I LOVE your set! I also love your color combo! The pumpkin treat box is just too cute! What did you use for the ovals of the pumpkin?

Thanks for sharing this! I'm waiting for my "Got Treats?" stamp set to come. I know what I want to make first (the cute treat box).

Thank you, Sandy :-) Those ovals are the Ovals Sizzix die...I think they are the biggest one on the die, I just cut three of them out. Lay two side by side, then lay a strip of Sticky Strip across the middle horizontally (not all the way across, just in the middle). Then remove the liner and lay the third oval on top of that Sticky Strip, centered over the other two ovals. Super simple, no measuring.

Oh, and by the way, before I forget--I don't use 12x12 card stock on the Fancy Favor die. If you use 5-1/2" x 11 card stock, and line up the narrow edge with one end of the die cut (probably line it up with the tab end because that gets folded inside and you won't notice if it's not lined up 100% straight), then you are still left with plenty of the tab end to fold inside and adhere with Sticky Strip. I just don't stock much 12x12 paper, so this is a great trick to keep you from needing it on that big die.
