Anything But A Card-Let's Get Hopping Round 15


Hey Y'all!
It's another fun hop with the Let's Get Hopping crew!  This month our projects are "Anything But A Card." I have chosen to showcase the Takeout Treats bundle, specifically the box itself.  I almost didn't order this, but one of my fellow demonstrators, Kathy Herring, kept showing us all of the cute things she was making with them, and I knew I had to have them!  Here are two ideas, but the possibilities are endless!
Aren't they precious?  I can't choose which one is my favorite, that's why I am showing both!
I used several punches to make these.  The Lemon Builder punch made the reindeer's ears, and the Sprig punch (my new favorite!) the antlers.  His nose was punched with the 1/2" circle punch.


The Cookie Cutter Builder punch made the eyes for both projects, and also the mouth for the snowman.  His rosy cheeks were made with Powder Pink ink sponged on with a sponge dauber.  
The Take Your Pick tool is your best friend for adhering small items like the eyes and mouth of the snowman!
Tips And Tricks:
  • 1/2 sheet of cardstock will make 1 box, you have to cut the framelit twice
  • Use a strong adhesive like Tear and Tape to glue the box together
  • Adhere the bottom of the box first, then the sides
  • The Poppy Parade "scarf" on the snowman was also adhered with Tear and Tape
  • Attach ribbon to the top to make a tree ornament



So which one is your favorite?  Leave a comment and let me know!  Now hop over to the amazing Tracy Bish, I know you are going to love what she has in store!

Rustic Charm Tag-CASE-ing The Catty #202

Hey Y'all!
Who's ready for Christmas?  I saw this picture on Facebook....can you guess which one I am?
I love making my own tags, so this week's CASE-ing the Catty challenge is right up my alley!  The challenge was our favorite tag from the 2018 Holiday catalog.  I chose the one in the middle of page 12 to CASE--the Festive Farmhouse Suite is one of my favorite in the whole catalog.
In fact, every embellishment used on my tag came from this suite!
I love the rustic charm of this tag...the truck is my favorite!  And the Corrugated Embossing Folder is a must have!  I separated the burlap trim, tied the strands in a knot, and used a glue dot to attach the strands to the back of the banner piece.
Folks, if you have not tried our Stampin' Blends markers, you are missing out!  The color so smooth and beautiful, I feel like an artist!  I added faux stitching to the crumb cake with a white gel pen, then finished it off with one of the galvanized buttons.  I can't wait to add it to a gift!
If you like this tag, leave a comment and let me know!  And tell me what your favorite Christmas style is.  Also, go over to the CASE-ing The Catty facebook page and like my picture.  The picture with the most likes wins the challenge that week.  Better yet, take the challenge and enter your own project!  So much fun!
