Sand Castle Treat Holder

Lazydays

Hi Stampers,

Today for my Lazy Days of Summer blog post, I made a Sand Castle Treat Holder. I saw one in the Silhouette Store but I don't own a Silhouette (insert sad face). So, I got out scrap paper and pencil and drew one.

Here are the four pieces you need. You can cut out the "treat holder" out of kraft cardstock-which, by the way, is coming back in the new Christmas Catalog!!!! This only uses one sheet of Gold Glimmer Paper. I thought the Gold Glimmer Paper looked like golden sand.

The treat holder "box" you will need to cut a piece of Kraft cardstock 2-1/2" x 9 inches. Score on the short side 1/2" on both sides. On the long side, score at 2" on each end.

The little circular towers I used a 3/4" circle punch to cut them out. I also used the smallest oval of the layering ovals framelits to cut out the 3 windows. I just partially die cut these and finished cutting across with scissors. I used the second bigger one to cut the door. I placed vellum on the back for the window and door covering. 

I traced my pattern on the back of the Gold Glimmer Paper and cut out. In fact, you can see some of my markings in the pics. 

You will need to use either Tombow green glue or tear and tape to adhere the box together. SNAIL will not hold!!!! I used dimensionals on the front of template to adhere to the bigger piece to give it some dimension.

3D Seaside Shore

Lazydays

Hi Stampers,

Back for another Lazy Days of Summer post. I really like how this "card" turned out. I love the 3D feel it has to it. The only adjustment I would make next time is to make it longer. It does have a lot of fussy cutting but who cares. Cardmaking relaxes me and it is a lot cheaper than therapy (well, maybe *Ü*) The best part is -- it lays flat for shipping and fits into Stampin' Up! envelopes.

I stamped the sentiment on the back of the aquarium.

Again, I used the Seaside Shore. I "shore" am getting the use out of this stamp set!!!! LOL

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #237-Window Box Thinlits Lantern

#237

Hi Stampers,

I really like the patriotic colors in the above photo. In staying with the theme, I chose to make a paper lantern out of the window box thinlits. The first one I made I also cut Whisper White pieces to go on the lantern and it made it a little heavy. It would be great to be hung up but not sitting on a table. 

DSCN0133

DSCN0134

This is the second one and I only made one window box "frame" for the bottom. I also didn't attach a second layer of cardstock. You could attach string to the top to hang it or just use as a table decoration.

These are the cute little battery operated tealights I found at Dollar Tree.

Wishing you an early safe Fourth of July!!!

 

 


Father's Day Six Pack

Gradsdads

Hi Stampers,

Today for my Grads & Dads blog post, I made a cute Father's Day six pack. That's right, my hubby's favorite---a six pack of beer!!! This card originated from the card I posted for Easter below.

DSCN0260

Instead, I used the cute jar framelit and silver foil sheets to cut out the beer cans. TIP: When cutting out die cuts with the gold or silver foil I place a sheet of copy paper over it then place the cutting plate on top. Any marks you have on your cutting plate will not show through on the gold or silver foil paper. 

I also used the Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP again along with the new mini gift bows. BTW, I think these are SO ADORABLE!!! They are definitely one of my favorite new embellishments.

DSCN0077

This card does fold flat and fits in a regular A2 envelope. However, with the gift bows I would probably hand deliver so they do not get ruined in the mail.

DSCN0078

I used the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

DSCN0079

I also have a template for you to download for the measurements along with tutorial for the Easter Basket Card/Six Pack.

I hope you give this a try!!

Baseball Cap Treat Holder

Gradsdads

 

DSCN0060

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to today's edition of Grads & Dads Week.  You can't think of summer without take me out to the ball game. I know, now you will have that song playing in your head. LOL Today, we have an alternative to yesterday's post. If your spouse, Dad, significant other is a baseball fan, then this is for them. A baseball cap treat holder. I scoured the internet for ideas. Most of the templates that are offered are for the baseball cap only and are quite small. I did find a few like this but they were smaller and for a fee. I took one look at the Window Box Thinlits and came up with my own size pattern. I hope you will give this a try.

Seeing how I live in Michigan, I had to make a Detroit Tigers colored cap. I hope you give this a try!!!

Welcome to Grads & Dads!!!

Gradsdads

Hi Stampers,

Welcome to Grads & Dads week here on my blog. The first item is a card but not a card--more like a 3D project.

DSCN0049

The little graduation hats are made with Stampin' Up!Window Box Thinlits. You cut out two of the Window Box Thinlits. You put together just like the directions, cutting off each score "end" on only one of the diecuts as directed. You will also need to cut off the 3 tabs for the top of the box (the ones with X's)

DSCN0051

You then cut 2 pieces of cardstock, in this case Pacific Point. Cut one 4-1/4" x 4"1/4" and one 3-3/4" x 3-3/4".  

Glue the bigger piece on top of the top of the Window Box Thinlits diecut. You will need to score the other piece. Lining the point at 1-3/4" score (as in the picture). On the opposite side, line the point at 1-1/4" and score (not pictured).

DSCN0018

DSCN0033

 

Fold back the larger scored corner and glue down. Place tear and tape where shown.

DSCN0034

Line up with the Window Box Thinlits diecut and adhere down. Die cut one "congrats" from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. Adhere across the "pocket" inside.

DSCN0041

Wind twine around to make tassle. Adhere on top with a  Metal Rimmed Pearl. Place money in "pocket." 

I looked for graduation mints to put in  but couldn't find any so I improvised with IceBreaker Mints. I hope you will give this a try!!

REMEMBER: You can order everything to make this card in my online store

I'll be back tomorrow with a cute little 3D for Father's Day. Hope to see you!!!

Track Stars

Hi Stampers,

Our two oldest grandchildren are in track and field. Last week at one of their meets, Connor (our oldest grandson) had a best personal record of 37 foot, 2 inches in the shotput!!! Of course, I had to make cards to send them. It looks a little juvenile but I really had to rack my brain for this one. The snowball from the retired stamp set Snow Much Fun was perfect for a shotput. I made a spinner card to look like he was throwing it.

DSCN0080

Here he is in real life:

Connor2

Our other grandson, Logan, is a runner. I swear he has the longest legs. He is only in 8th grade and is already 6'3"!!!! I didn't have any stamps to use on his card so I got out some old Sizzix dies I had, Stampin' Up! framelits and went with it.
