Happy Halloween with the Gift Box Punch Board

Here is a little box I made with the Gift Box Punch Board and  a window sheet.

This box is extra small as I used a 5" X 5" piece of window sheet.

Follow the directions on the punch board using S for the start line and the diagonal line.

I attached the corners with the handheld stapler and a glue dot on the top.

The sentiment is punched with the Word Window Punch, in Tangelo Twist Ink.

All products listed below.



Here is a video that demonstrates the Gift Box Punch Board

Best of Autumn

I couldn't resist.  I went back to my collection of retired stamp sets to use Stampin' Up!'s Best Of Autumn stamp set.

The challenge over at The Friday Mashup is:

 


Create a project using the "Sketch".
Create a project with "Leaves".
or Mash it Up! and create a project with "Leaves using the Sketch".

Here is my card

Good Greetings

Today's post is a Christmas card in Naturals White and Marina Mist.  I used the tiny snowflakes from Visions of Santa highlighted with drops of Dazzling Details.  The sentiment is from Good Greetings.
Also used is Silver Baker's Twine and an All is Calm Snowflake.



This was going to be my swap card for World Card Day, but my husband, the critic, suggested I make something else.  So I did.

PPA219



It is Thursday and you know what that means...Challenge at PPA!  This week we have a color challenging that is just screaming 'Fall" to me.

I talked about this Hello Fall sentiment on a post earlier this week.  I am going to repeat it here: 

You may notice that I do not have the exclamation point on the end of the sentiment "Hello Fall"  
That's because I chopped it off!  Try as I might, I could not get the image to stamp so that the exclamation point looked like an exclamation point (and not an additional "L").  So, as I have said before, don't be afraid to alter any of your stamps to make them work for you .  
The exclamation point is gone and I am happy !

My stamping technique here is a modified "rock and roll".  I inked the Crushed Curry first and they just half inked the Cajun Craze or the Always Artichoke and stamped the image.  I guess you could call it a "half roll" technique.
