Tricked out Treats with the Inking Royalty

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop!  Today’s Tricked Out Treats Blog Hop is filled with spooky, fun projects for Halloween.  We are excited to share our creations with you today and hope these projects inspire you.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I am so excited that we have the uber talented Lydia Fiedler joining us on the hop today! I adore Lydia as a friend and her artsy talent!  She is one of my favorite sources of crafty goodness! Welcome, Lydia! And thank you for joining us today for the Royal Hop!!  She gets to be a Royal for a day!! Yeppie!! The fabulous Lisa Pretto is also joining us!! I adore Lisa and all that she does for the Stampin’ Up! Community!!! truly we have the most amazing ladies with us today!!!  Huggs and Kisses to you both!

I decided to step out side my normal card box and make a treat holder for you guys! But, then I could not help myself and made a card to go along with the treat box!  For both projects, I used the Spooky Cat bundle and the Spooky Nights Designer Series Paper.  I can’t begin to tell you how much I like the cat punch!  It is probably my favorite punch in a very long time! I am just reaching for it all the time.

Spooky Cat Bundle

The Spooky Night Designer Series Paper coordinates with the punch. And is perfect for all your Halloween Crafting!

Spooky Night Designer Series Paper

The pumpkins and hats are adorable and fussy cut super easy.  The polka dots are just adorable. And the cats are just the right size to punch with the cat punch!!!

I surfed through some of my favorite blogs that make 3-D items a lot. And came across a box that was made from a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper over at Pootles.   It is the perfect size for a “fun size” candy bar. Witch ment it was just right for a Halloween treat!

Each box was made with 12 x 22 Designer Series Paper. You get 4 boxes per sheet of Designer Series Paper. Then I used the Spooky Cat bundle to decorate the boxes.

Here’s the scoring and cutting info:

  • the paper should be 6×6
  • Score at 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 inches
  • On the other side score st 1 1/2 , 2 1/4, 3 3/4, and 4 1/2
  • Burnish all score lines
  • On the side with four score lines you will cut up to where it intersects with the other score line
  • Then you will cut away a few sections. (See below)

Above is a picture of the template that I made.  You will want to cut away the parts that I have scribbled on. Also, the Black lines are the score lines. So you can see you don’t cut away the entire flap  So that you end up with something that looks like this.

The next step is to add glue to the sections that were left after cutting!  I used the fast fuse for this. It is very rare that I reach for this over the multipurpose glue. In this case fast fuse was perfect!

TRICKED OUT-

I used a piece of leftover backing from the multipurpose adhesive sheet.  The tape in fast fuse will not stick to the backing. So, it is perfect for when you want to run the tape from edge to edge of a piece of paper.

I added fast fuse to the orange sections that are folded over. All that is left is to put the box together.  The bottom two orange sections glue to the long tab that is in between them.  This makes the box. The top section with fast fuse adheres to the top tab.  This makes the top.  You want to repeat the process on both sides.

This is such a fun box with designer series paper. I love how when you open it the inside paper is just a pretty as the outside.

The hinged lid makes this box unique. Now, you can use a 1/2 inch circle punch to add a little notch to the bottom of the lid making it easy to open.  I opted not to.  Also, if you have any questions about making the box feel free to contact me via email.  Pootles has a wonderful video on how to make this box.

Now, y’all know I couldn’t let the day go by without showing you the cat!  Is he not adorable. Paper crafting could not get any easier.  The fun scarf is the Vintage Crochet Trim. I love this trim! It tied just like a real scarf!! How cool is that!!!

  • The cat’s ear peeking out is something I have been thinking about ever since I saw the hats.  I used a exact-o knife to cut a slit for the ear to peep out
  • The orange layer is embossed with the quilt top texture embossing folder. This folder is quickly becoming a favorite!
  • The stitched layering dies make a plain square something special

The Pal’s Family BLOG Hop

Welcome to the Families First Pals Blog Hop for April 2017.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families. This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

This months blog hop is all about family! And what is more family than the family vacation.  The Glamper Greeting stamp set is a throwback to the great family adventure!

Glamper Greeting

 

This set is perfect for any style of stamping…from watercolor to adding all the little details to just the basics.  Paired with Designer Series Paper, I went with just the basics.   The Urban Underground has a awesome geometric paper that reminded me of mountains! This was the perfect place of our little camper family to visit!!!

Urban Underground

I have really enjoyed this paper! If you do not have it, you really should!!!

 

The black and vanilla dots are on the back side of the “mountain” paper!!  To pull out the color in the graphic design I added a layer of Delightful Dijon behind the camper and the designer series paper. Not only does it bring out the color it adds a little fludness to the card.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

The little extra flourishes add so much to the life of this awesome set!  I enjoy making sets of cards for family and friends. My great aunt is one of my most beloved supporters. She is a fellow creative soul! And I love making cards for her. This is one of the designs I am currently working on for her! Love you, Aunt Sarah! 

  • The card base is the note card and envelopes packs. These are perfect for small sweet cards!  Each layer is 1/8 inch smaller. 
  • The colors used are Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, and So Saffron
  • Remember the envelope! It is important to make the entire package pretty! Envelope decorating makes the mail persons and the recipient smile!!! And what is better than that 😍 

The little diamond shape is such a pleasent suprise in this set! It is perfect for creating a simple background!!! It would be perfect for a confettie look on a card. And it is stunning on a envelope!!!
