Make It Monday: Hello Blessings Card

A friend recently reached out to me about making some cards for her organization's "Blessings from Blessings" outreach with local police and fire departments. I thought the sentiments in the Barn Door stamp set were perfect for this card. 


Open the door on the front of the card to reveal the blessings sentiment. 


I used the scalloped edge dies from the Stitched Be Mine dies to add a little pop of color and texture.


The left side of the door is scored to create the hinge so the door can be opened to reveal the sentiment behind. I also added some flowers in Crushed Curry for more color pop.


What a beautiful sentiment for a new home, family, or friend (even our first responders)!


"Make It" Instructions
  1. Cut a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Soft Suede cardstock. Score and fold in half to create card base.
  2. Die cut a 1" x 5-1/4" piece of Crushed Curry cardstock with scalloped edge die from Stitched Be Mine dies. Adhere behind a 3-3/4" x 5-1/4" piece of wood grain paper from Come To Gather DSP.
  3. Adhere scalloped edge/DSP layer to card front.
  4. Stamp door image from Barn Door stamp set on a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock in Black Memento ink. Die cut with door die from Sliding Door dies. Score at 1/4" on left side of door.

  6. Adhere only the left side of door to left side of sentiment layer. 
  7. Adhere assembled door/sentiment to middle of card front. 
  8. Stamp "hello" hanging plaque on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Pretty Peacock ink. Die cut with hanging plaque die from Sliding Door dies. Adhere to top of door with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Make It Monday: Eat, Drink & Be Scary Treat Box

A little pumpkin spice is always nice. I found these flavored taffy candies at my local dollar store and knew they would make a nice treat for this week's Make It Monday project.

Last week I shared a Halloween tag topper. Here is another quick and easy project using the Tiny Treat Box for those spooky treats. Perfect for school, office, or trick-or-treater!


The color of the pumpkin spice candies works well with the Monster Bash DSP. 


To add a little menacing mystery, I used the stamping off technique to stamp a spider from the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set over the sentiment. 


"Make It" Instructions
  1. Add candy inside a Tiny Treat Box. 
  2. Wrap a 1-3/4" x 8-1/2" belly band strip of bat paper from the Monster Bash DSP around a Tiny Treat Box. Adhere ends at bottom. (Be sure not to adhere ends to box so the belly band can be removed later to access the treat inside.)
  3. Die cut a flourish frame from the Ornate Frames dies in Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
  4. Stamp "Eat, Drink & Be Scary" sentiment from Spooktacular Bash stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Black Memento ink. 
  5. Using stamping off technique, stamp spider from Wonderfully Wicked stamp set over sentiment in Smoky Slate ink. 
  6. Die cut sentiment with corresponding non-flourish frame from Ornate Frames dies. Adhere sentiment to flourish frame.
  7. Add a folded over 5" strip of Basic Black Scalloped Ribbon to back of assembled frame, allowing part of ribbon ends to show.
  8. Adhere assembled frame/ribbon to top of treat box with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  9. Embellish with some gray dots from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes above and below the sentiment.
