Treat Trio


This week on Create with Connie and Mary there is an “anything but a card” challenge! I recently used a friend’s Candy Wrapper Die and have been having so much fun with it!

I decided that for this challenge, I’d make three different containers specific to some major events – Halloween, Valentine’s Day and Christmas.

First, I’ll show my Halloween one:

I ran the Tangerine Tango piece of cardstock through my Big Shot with the Spider Web embossing folder. I then sponged it with Basic Black ink. For the decoration, I added a Decorative label in Old Olive and then layered it with some Rich Razzleberry. I added a bat in Basic Black and then the word “wicked” from Wicked Cool and a super fun glimmer brad.

Now, for Christmas:

I stamped the Baja Breeze cardstock with the snowflakes from Snow Swirled. I actually completely closed up one end and added a Real Red scallop circle to the bottom. The top is tied shut with some Candy Cane Designer Fabric and the front is decorated with a snowflake and a small saying from Tags Till Christmas. It is topped off with some Basic Rhinestones.

Lastly, for Valentine’s Day:

The base of this project was made with Pink Pirouette and then I added a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock. I cut a Scalloped Heart with my Big Shot in Melon Mambo and then adhered a heart which I punched out with the Large Heart punch and which was stamped with the heart image from Paisley Prints. I then added a little “love” heart from I (heart) Hearts and a “happy valentine’s day” saying from Teeny Tiny Wishes which is affixed with a mini library clip.

Super fun huh? Now head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and let’s see your “anything but a card” project!
