Open If You Dare Coffin Box


Happy Thursday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a fun little Coffin Treat Box.
I love this little treat box, I have had these laying on my craft table for several weeks and
had not opened them, why was I waiting??

So fun to work with, they come flat in a pkg of 12 (12 tops and 12 bottoms) ready to assemble.

I used tear and tape for this one. You definitely want a good strong adhesive.
I assembled the bottom first and then traced around it to make a template for the inside.
I wanted to "line" mine with some Gorgeous Grape card stock.
I cut the template I made out just inside the drawn lines and then used my 
trimmer to trim down the edges just a hair more. 
I embossed my Gorgeous Grape piece with the Stylish Scroll EF and then glued it into the bottom of the  box.


I also embossed the lid for the box with the same EF before assembling it.
After my lid and bottom was put together I used some Frost White Shimmer Paint on a 
dauber and sponged the edges.
So cool, love the look.

I stamped the sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set on a scrap 
of Whisper White and used a die from the Ornate Frames Dies to cut it out.
I cut another one of the Ornate Frame Dies in Pumpkin Pie to use on the box top as well.


I added a piece of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon next and the Dracula image is cut
from the Monster Bash  Designer Series Paper. I added it over the ribbon with dimensionals.

The sentiment is then glued on and a Enamel Dot was added at the edge of the 
sentiment piece.


So cute ...right?
All ready for some Halloween goodies!!!

Monster Bash Treats


Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

Today"s share is some fun Monster Bash Treat holders.

I love Halloween it is one of my favorite Holidays to create for, and of course
treat holders are what it is all about right?

 I have created a PDF with instructions for this project.
Click here for that 

These little treat holders are so much fun to put together.

It starts with a piece of DSP 6 x 4.5 inches
so you could make 4 out of on sheet of 12x12 DSP!


I used the Ornate Dies, they are so amazing, I love how intricate they are!

I cut images from the DSP to decorate some and for some I stamped sentiments from the 
Spooktacular  Bash Stamp Set.

I added the die cut layer to the box flap with dimensionals.



I used Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry along with Whisper White
to create the tag fronts.
I also used a few of the fun Monster Bash Enamel Shapes.


Here is a pic of the little treat holder to show how I did the 
closure. Pinch up the sides a bit and fold top flap over.
I used some tiny thin sticky back velcro dots, I go mine at JoAnns.

Be Jolly


Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today's card share features the Snow Front stamp set.
This set is so cute I love that little snowman!! 

I have had a hard time getting into the Christmas cards this year,
I bought several sets during the demo pre-order and even a few more since the catalog went live and I
have yet to use them much.

I am such a seasonal stamper and I think it is just still
too hot for me to really be in the swing of Christmas card making, but I will get there.

This is one of the few sets I have played with a bit.

I stamped the little scene on thick whisper white, and my sentiment comes 
from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.
I added it using Real Red for a pop of color!


I matted this piece with some real red card stock.

The base of my card is Crumb Cake card stock and the DSP on here
is from the Let It Snow Specialty  pack.

I think this is a perfect little country Christmas card, it definitely 
give off that vibe.


A  few little red rhinestones finishes it up.

Fall Pumpkin Set



Hello Peeps!!!

Hope you all are having a great weekend.

I have been enjoying several days off work due to escorting Hubby to some
doctors appointments and to attend Grandparent's Day
at my Granddaughter's Preschool.
This was our first ever Grandparent's Day and oh man, I have to say it was sooo
much fun!!
We had a blast watching the little's sing a couple of songs they 
learned for us and show us around their classroom.

Anyway I  had an idea to make a pumpkin with Sunflowers, much like the 
floral arrangements that are popular this time of the year.
And when I made my first, I liked it so much I made a few more. 😆

I stamped my pumpkins, from the Harvest Hello set and my "Sunflowers" from
the Daisy Lane set, on thick whisper white with Black Stazon and
colored with my Aqua Painter and ink pads.
I fussy cut out the Sunflowers and stems, the Pumpkin is Punched out with it's matching punch from the Harvest Hello Bundle.


This is the first one I made, I used Early Espresso for my base and the DSP is from the Come To
Gather paper pack.
Each Pumpkin and Sunflower is set on a Die Cut from the Nested Stitched Labels Dies.


Each card has a few similarities and a few differences.
Each has a different sentiment, from The Gather Together set, the Seasonal Wreath set and the 
To Every Season stamp set. 


I used the Birch Background stamp for this one and the Buffalo Check Background
for two of the others.

I also used the Corrugated and Subtle Embossing Folders.


I finished each card with a linen bow on the pumpkin and a few sticky back gold sequins that are from this month's Paper Pumpkin kit.
