Come To Gather gift holder


Watercolor Pencil holder made using the Come To Gather product suite.

 

Hello!  Thanks for visiting!  

 

Today I am sharing this fun gift holder.  I made this as one of the gifts for my Fall Harvest Creative Escape attendees back in September.  Inside, I put a collection of Watercolor Pencils.  These boxes are quick to create, and can be adjusted easily to fit just about anything.  

 

I shared how to make the same style box in this post.

 

What a great way to give or receive a gift!

 

And once again, I have used the Come To Gather product suite, which I just love!

 

 

 

The Gathered Leaves dies in this collection are so versatile, not only do they cut, but they emboss as well!  Look at the beautiful detail on this leaf. 

 

 

Watercolor Pencil holder made with the Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves dies.

 

I added some gorgeous Golden Glitz Delicata Ink to help bring out the detail even more.  The Delicata inks are amazing!! They have been so popular, all 3 colors have sold out!  Fortunately, they will be back in stock later this month.

 

To create this project:

  • cut a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock 4" x 10 3/4", score at 1/2" on both long edges and 3" & 3 1/2" on one short edge
  • cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2" x 1"

Assemble the box.  Tie ribbon around box.  Punch a starburst from Come To Gather designer paper and layer over a 2 1/4" punched Pretty Peacock cardstock circle.  Adhere sentiment to front of circle, than adhere to box front with dimensionals.  Die cut a leaf.  Add golden glitz ink with a sponge, and adhere to the front of the box.

 

I hope you enjoyed today's project.  Stop back soon to learn how to make a spooky background!

Color Fusers Blog Hop October 2019

The Stargazing stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual catalog paired with Black Foil sheets and Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, and Cajun Craze ink.

 

Welcome to another Color Fusers blog hop, I am glad you are joining us!

 

CF October 2019

 

This month's color challenge felt like fall to me, and includes Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, Cajun Craze, and Black.

 

I was very tempted to dive into a fall project.  But I resisted, and instead, I reached for a stamp set from the Annual catalog I had not yet used, called Stargazing.  The sentiments in it are just lovely! 

 

 

And as we move into the Thanksgiving season, I have so much to be thankful for!  This card will be perfect to share a note with my family, or a friend, to tell them how grateful I am to have them in my life! 

 

 

The Black foil sheets are so beautiful #147898.

 

 

I chose to bring the black in by using the beautiful Black foil sheets as a background layer.  And Shimmer Black embossing powder?  Yes, please!!  It is so hard to appreciate in the photo, but it is simply gorgeous in person.

 

 

 

The Shimmery Black embossing powder is a must have! #149512

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Terracotta Tile card base 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2"
  • cut a front layer of black foil 4" x 5" and die cut the scalloped side edge
  • cut a Whisper White top layer with the 3 3/8" x 4 7/8" stitched rectangle die

 

 

Stamp the swirl in Grapefruit Grove on the Whisper White layer.  Stamp off once before stamping to soften the color.  Add stars in Terracotta Tile and Cajun Craze ink.  Heat emboss the sentiment and some random stars in the background in Shimmer Black embossing powder.  Die cut the sentiment with the stitched square die before adding to the card front with dimensionals.  Finish it all off with a few punched black foil stars.

 

Stampin' Tip:  To create interest to your background, vary the intensity of your color.  This is especially effective on a background when repeatedly stamping the same, or multiple images.  An easy way to get this effect is to stamp your image on a piece of scrap paper before stamping your project.  

 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Season of Thanks with Come To Gather and a Blog Hop

The Come To Gather product suite has a stamp/die bundle, gorgeous designer paper, beautiful ribbon, and fun veneer elements!

 

Hello and welcome to our mini blog hop! 

 

I know you will enjoy the amazing projects being shared with you today!

 

I love the Come To Gather product suite.  It includes this lovely stamp set, and coordinating dies, as well as gorgeous papers, ribbons, and fun veneer elements.

 

 

 

For my card today, I paired Mint Macaron ink with the amazing Delicata Celestial Copper ink.  This ink is beautiful.  It is --the-- best metallic ink I have ever used!  It is so shimmery and just lovely!

 

 

The Delicata ink comes in Copper, Gold, and Silver.
  

 

To create this card:

  • cut a thick very vanilla card base 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 12"
  • cut a designer paper layer 3 3/4" x 5"
  • cut a very vanilla layer 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
  • cut a very vanilla strip 1" x 2 1/2"

 

Randomly stamp the large maple leaf in Mint Macaron ink on the vanilla layer, and add copper dots.  Double stamp the maple leaf on a vanilla scrap in Mint Macaron ink, than copper ink.  Die cut and crumple.  Layer some Copper Trim on the back before adhering to the card front.  Double stamp the small pumpkins in Pretty Peacock ink, than copper ink, before die cutting.  Arrange the crumpled leaf, small pumpkins and sentiment on the card front.  Add Holiday Rhinestone Jewels for the finishing touch.

 

 

Layering ribbon or trim behind an element is a great way to add interest to your project.

 

 

Stampin' Tip:  Add ribbon, twine, or other trim behind an element to add dimension and interest to your project.

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves dies from the Come To Gather suite of products.

Harvest Hellos Wormy Apple Treat Holder

Harvest Hellos and Check You Out sucker holder!

 

Welcome back!

 

If you have been with me for the past week or so, you have seen the Harvest Hellos bundle.  This bundle is so incredibly easy and fun to work with!  Once I started creating, I could not stop!

 

 

 

 

Today, I have chosen to pair it with another adorable set, Check You Out.  And it is perfect together!

 

 

I have chosen to make this fun teacher gift, but by swapping out the sentiment, and there are so many choices between the 2 stamp sets, it could be used for any occasion!

 

 

The worm and glasses stamps from Check You Out pair perfectly with the Harvest Hellos stamp set!

 

If you look closely, you can see the absolutely adorable glasses stamped in the background!  It is one of my favorite stamps!  And that little worm...

 

....how can you not love him?!

 

This little package can be made to hold anything.  I added a caramel applepop.  I love these, and look forward to getting them each fall!  These little bits of sweetness will find their way to school for my kids' teachers this week.  But this open top box is perfect for gift cards or any little treat!  As an added bonus, they come together in a snap!

 

To create this project:

  • Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock 3 3/4" x 5 1/2", score as shown
  • Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock 2 1/2" x 2 1/4" for the front layer

 

Cut your Basic Black cardstock 3  3/4" x 5  1/2" and score as shown.

 

Snip the long edges in just to the score line, and create a little notch.  Fold at all score lines, and apply adhesive to the sides.  In Memento Black ink, repeatedly stamp the glasses covering the small black layer, and adhere to box front.  Stamp the worm in Granny Apple Green ink,  than fussy cut.  Stamp again in Memento Black ink, color the bow tie with a Basic Black Blends marker, fussy cut and adhere the black tie to the green worm.  Stamp the apple stem and leaves in Call Me Clover ink on Call Me Clover cardstock.  Punch.  Stamp the apple in Real Red ink on Real Red cardstock.  Punch.  Add sentiment in Memento Black ink.  Assemble the apple with the worm peaking out.  Attach to the front of the treat holder.  Add googly eyes to the worm.

 

 

I hope you have loved the last project I will share for a while using the Harvest Hellos bundle!  But don't be sad, I have a great class offer for you!
