Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Halloween & Autumn Colors

Welcome to the OCTOBER 2022 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects in our hop from Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is Halloween & Autumn Colors! For my project I am featuring the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set, and the Rustic Harvest 12"x12" Designer Series Paper. {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post}


I made a Mini Kit Kat Treat Holder...it is open ended, so the candy can slide right out. This is a super simple project, and the key is finding a candy with a wrapper that coordinates well with the color of your holder. The treat holder in the center of the picture above is the first one I made, in neutral Crumb Cake Cardstock, and the Soft Suede Ink Pad. I wanted to also show you how it can look with patterned paper, so I used the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper for the ones at the top and bottom of the above pic. The one at the top shows a pattern of the DSP that I colored using Blending Brushes and the following inks: Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, and Cherry Cobbler. The one at the bottom is a light pattern that I stamped on, again using the Soft Suede Ink Pad. The greetings were stamped in the following inks, from top to bottom: Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, and Cajun Craze. Hopefully that will help give you an idea of what colors you might like to use!


To make this holder, you'll start with a 3"x4" piece of cardstock or patterned paper. Then you will score parallel with the 3" side at the following measurements: 1/2", 1", 2-1/4" and 2-3/4". You'll put adhesive on the 1/2" strip and adhere the wrapper closed. I like to use Stampin' Seal, because I hate getting sticky fingers, and a tip for making sure these stayed well adhered is to put Stampin' Seal on each of the two surfaces that are getting adhered together. And, since this is an open-ended treat holder, I applied a Mini Glue Dot on the back of the candy before I slid it into the wrapper - that holds it in place, but is light enough that you can tug the candy out easily.

I chose the Gold & Vanilla Satin Edged Ribbon for all the treat holders, because it coordinates well with all the colors, and the Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins do also. Unfortunately, the Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins are not available right now...I believe they will come back in stock at the end of October. You can easily use the Elegant Faceted Gems instead, and they look great! You can get away with just one gem or sequin, or you could use 3 on each holder, like I did on the top one in the first pic. These make great place setting favors, class or co-worker treats, or even a fun "thank you" for a bank teller, cashier, or delivery person.

Stampin' Supplies: Soft Seedlings Stamp Set, Rustic Harvest 12x12 Designer Series Paper, Crumb Cake Cardstock & Ink Pad, Cajun Craze Ink Pad, Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad, Mango Melody Ink Pad, Blending Brushes, Gold & Vanilla Satin Edged Ribbon, Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins (or Elegant Faceted Gems), Stampin' Seal Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Scrub & Stampin' Mist (to clean red rubber stamps), Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Grid Paper, Paper Trimmer. {see Product Purchase Links under the Blog Roll}

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Back to School

Welcome to the AUGUST 2022 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects in our hop from Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is Back to School! For my project I am featuring the Bottled Happiness BUNDLE, along with a little personalization using the Alphabest Stamp Set. {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post}


I kind of made this card up as I went along, so if I did it over again, I'd probably extend the Smokey Slate Cardstock across the whole front of the card. But since I had already adhered the sentiment on the front of the little flap at the left, and even adhered another piece to the back to give it a little more weight, I didn't want to take it apart. I adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, though, so I could have carefully warmed it up with my Heat Tool and gently pulled it away - just remember that trick if you make a boo boo. This trick works with our Stampin' Seal adhesive, too. Oh, and don't strain your eyes trying to read the labels on those two tall, skinny bottles I punched out with the Vintage Bottle Punch. I just scribbled some lines on those labels using my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.


Don't go getting the wrong idea about the inside of this card...I'm not suggesting teachers go to work drunk. It's just that my kids are wayyyyy out of school, so this is where my mind went with this month's theme! The Alphabest Stamp Set comes in a BUNDLE with a cute little tag sort of punch that each of the letters or symbols will fit into, but I only used the stamp set for this project. I put the solid "tag" image and the "outline" tag image on a block next to each other, and stamped them using the Soft Seafoam Ink Pad, onto the Soft Seafoam Cardstock of the card base, to look like a brick wall.


I did a little creative layering using Stampin' Dimensionals with the bottles, so the side of the chonky bottle to the left would hold down the flap, and the bottom corner of the skinny bottle all the way to the right would hold down the greeting. That way, the card stays closed until you're ready to spring the surprise! I think you might be able to see best on this last picture, where I dipped one of my Blender Pens in some ink I got from the lid of my Basic Gray Ink Pad, and dragged it along the top of the Smokey Slate Cardstock, so it would give it a bit of a shadow for some depth. And, you can see how I used the "Rock-n-Roll" technique to ink up the chonky bottle...I first inked up the image on my Balmy Blue Ink Pad, then stamped OFF once, then sort of rolled the outside edges of the bottle image onto the ink pad, and finally I stamped that on my Basic White Cardstock. That left the center part of the image lighter than the outline, and helped the greeting to stand out more.

Stampin' Supplies: Bottled Happiness BUNDLE (Bottled Happiness Stamp Set + Bottle Punch), Alphabest Stamp Set, Soft Seafoam Cardstock & Ink Pad, Smokey Slate Cardstock, Basic White Cardstock, Basic Gray Ink Pad, Blender Pens, Balmy Blue Ink Pad, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals, Simply Shammy, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Grid Paper, Paper Trimmer. And don't forget Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes, if you want to mail your card! {see Product Purchase Links under the Blog Roll}
