20180905_231629

 

20180906_183853

Lets get to it!

 

Supplies used:

Dashing Deer stamps 147728

Detailed Deer thinlits  147915

Delicate Lace  Edgelits  147053

 Gray Granite Cardstock  146983
 Copper Foil sheet  142020
 Copper Glimmer paper  147817
Shimmery White Cardstock ( Inside of card )  101910
 Joyous Noel Specialty DSP   147816

Bright Copper Shimmer paint  147045

Stamping Sponges   141337

Stamparatis  146276

Foam Adhesive Strips   141825

Tombow Liquid Glue   110755

 White Envelope  107301

 

 

Measurements & Instructions:

8 1/2" x 5 1/2"  Gray Granite CS  scored at  2 1/8", 4 /14" on the 8 1/2" side

20180905_230749

4 1/4" x 5 1/2"  Gray Granite CS

4" x 5 1/4"  Copper Foil sheet

3 3/8" x 3 1/4"  Copper Glimmer paper

4" x 5 1/4"  Shimmery White CS  ( Inside of card )

5" x 3 3/4"  Joyous Noel Specialty DSP

 

Lets do our stamping first.

Line up your stamps on the Stamparatis

Shake up Glimmer paint then put a very small amount on a piece of plastic packaging

Lightly tap your sponge in the paint  then  onto your stamp. Gently close the flap and stamp your image. You may need to do this twice. If you press too hard it gives it a smeared look.

Stamp envelope while you have your paint out.

Set these aside to dry

20180906_130804

20180906_184416

 

Next, lets cut/punch out the pieces that we will need to finish this card 

20180905_230826

20180906_122131

Now lets place the Foam strips on the backside of the card front as shown

20180906_150006

Peel backing off of foam strips only around the deer and place

copper glimmer paper on top  to cover the opening of the deer.

TIP:

Only peel back about 1" of backing on outside edges of foam strips leaving tips pointed out.

Turn over and place on foil sheet in center. This allows you a little wiggle room to get it straight.

 

   

20180906_120803

 

20180906_120726

After lined up, place your hand on card front and start pulling tabs off one by one!
Perfect placement every time this way!!!


Live and learn and share, RIGHT? (smiles) 

20180906_121142

Use small dabs of glue on the thicker places of your cutouts and let it get tacky by waiting a minute or less 

20180906_164148

20180906_184239

 

20180906_143516

Place glue on the bottom section that is scored at 2 1/8 of your card base. Take your completed card front and lay it directly on top matching up on all 4 sides.  Stand it up to help align.

February Glitter Queens Blog Hop Treat Holders

 

February Blog Hop

Hello Everyone and Welcome ,

     Glad you could join us!

Here is my Mini Treat box Holder....( and a matching card I made from my leftover 3x3 swaps)

20180124_183135

 

I used the  "Sure Do Love You"  Bundle for this project with a little tweeking!

 

20180124_183530

I started off with a piece of   DSP cut at 4 1/4 X 8 1/2 .

I placed 1 end right up to the straight edge just before the tabs. Now bring up the other end all the way up to the top of the lid. place it in the Big Shot and run it through.

20180124_160329

Now place the straight edge in the corner of the Score Board and score at 3 1/4  & 3 3/4  to create a bottom for the box.  Fold all of the score lines.

20180124_161259

Cut out the tabs in the center on both sides. 

20180124_162134

Now punch out a tab with the 3/4" circle punch as shown.

20180124_173745

Put some Tombow on the outside flaps and put the Mini treat box together.

Now we are going to take the sentiment "Just For You" and tap it in the Versa Mark, then into the Melon Mambo Ink Pad then right onto your Card stock.  Sprinkle clear Embossing powder on it and heat set it with your Heat tool.    Voila' ...... Now you have a shiny sentiment that catches your eye!         It is so much prettier in person!

20180124_173226

Cut it into three pieces and place Mini Dimensionals on the backs of each word.

Stamp the large heart in Melon Mambo and cut it out with the matching Die.  Also cut out 1 in gold foil. Cut a small heart out with Gold foil as well.

20180124_174547

Attach the large hearts together with Tombow liquid glue.

20180124_181331

Attach hearts to Treat box with Dimensionals.

Add some embellishments then

20180124_182836

Fill with your favorite treats!!

20180124_183001

Here is the card opened.

So I started with a 4.25" X 11" piece of card stock.

I scored it at 5.5" and  9".

My card Card front is 4" X  5.25.

I used the 2nd to the Largest  "Lots of Labels" Framelits to cut out the center of the card,  then embossed it using the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder for added Dimension.  { I will save the piece that I cut out and use it on a later Project}

Turn card front over and place large dimensionals on the bottom section below the score line as shown in picture. Turn over and attach.

Now place mini dimensionals on card front as shown in picture.  Attach cake stand with Tombow.

I used embossing powder and Versa Mark to create these elegant looking cakes. I cut them out and assembled them like so.

I used silver foil and silver Glimmer paper on this project.

Assemble card front.

Attach CELEBRATE using tombow. This acts as a stopper to keep  the card open while being displayed.
