Eat Chocolate!

Eat Chocolate Page Holder and Matchbox Candy Box

This is a cute little project I made with my clubs this month.  Very simple and ooo so cute!

Matchbox Chocolate Holder
To make this I used our Stampin' Up Matchbox Die.  I used blushing bride CS,ran through the die and waahlah-instant box(folding required;) but soooo easy!)  For the sleeve I also ran through our elegant lines embossing folder, after Scoring lines so I dont lose my folds.  Make box as directions say.  On to the topper...I used our new Eat Chocolate Stamp Set(LOVE it!!!) I colored the image in with our Stampin' markers and then stamped image on whisper white cs.I added the cutest little pearl from our basic pearl jewels, and a little dazzling diamonds on another bon-bon with our tombo liquid mono adhesive. I then punch out image with the decorative label punch.   To create a frame around this label punch, I punched out 2 decorative label punches in chocolate chip.  Cut 1 in half vertical and 1 horizontal.  Layer them slightly bigger than your original(white label) and adhere to back, as seen here:
Attach to front of your box.  I cut a small piece of blushing bride ribbon folded over and glued to inside of matchbox to act as a pull tab.  Fill with chocolate and enjoy!!

Page Holder
I was trying to figure out what to call this little guy.  I guess I could have called it a book marker,huh?  Oh well, whatever it is its a cute little project and so easy to make! 
I used a piece of blushing bride cs and folded in half.  Slide into the decorative label punch,making sure folded line does NOT reach the end(leaving it approx 1/4" from edge). Punch label out.  this is what it should look like:
I added another stamped image from Eat Chocolate stamp set on a tag from the Matchbox Die and some blushing bride designer series paper(punched with decorative label punch).  On the inside I uses 2 magnetic pieces so that the marker folds closed and holds your place;)
If only I could find all this time to eat chocolate while looking at my Stampin' Up catalogs;)

I hope you enjoyed these!!

Until Next Thought,

Love is in the air...?

tri-fold cards   

Hello my friends!!! Sorry i have been absent for so long!  I have been trying to keep busy, and apparently it has worked;) !  In doing so I have neglected my blogging though!  Of course I have plenty of thoughts to share with you but for today I will keep it to one and then have more to blog about in a few days!! Good plan, right?  we will see how I follow through with my thoughts...

Anyway on to my cards...   This is a trifold card I crated after seeing a similar one done by a SU! demo.  I always kind of glance at others cards, throw a thought into the right lobe and figure I'll get back to it later.  Then I just kind of pull that thought out and wing it  =)  when I'm playing with my stamps.  This card I created by taking a piece of whisper white CS, and cutting it at 5 1/4" x 12".  I make it a little smaller than the actual  5 1/2" of my usual card choose size.  This is so that my hearts or whatever I choose to put on my card can hang over the edge.  I score the 12" side at 4" and 8",this creates equal folds.  I cut on an angle from 2 1/2" to the corner of the 5 1/4" creating a "hill effect".  I then punched along the edge with our scallop edge punch. You can do so many things with this card-thoughts of balloons,etc! You will need two of each color- full sized heart (punch).  I start by adhering 1 to the front of the card in all three colors.  Here I used rich razzleberry textured cs,pear pizzaz(stamped in garden green with the image from from So Shelli's "Charming" stamp set-LOVE THIS ONE!!)and tempting turquoise also stamped with the words in turquoise, from the same stamp set.
Attach the top heart first,then I move to the bottom and finally the center(so it is spaced in-between). I then attach the other hearts to the back,making sure to match up.  Then I stamped the sentiments from either the "FYI" stamp set or "things I love" stamp set.  You can add a ribbon to tie it all together if you like(I used our razzleberry grosgrain).

Hope you enjoy this one!
