Craftwell DT: Fall Festival Goodies

 





Hi, 

This is my next post for Craftwell. 

Every year my daughter's troop host a fall festival at the pumpkin patch, so I searched Pinterest and came up with several ideas for dressing up fall goodies:

Reese candy holders: 


These pumpkin (orange flavored) gummies were my favorite: 


I die-cut several tags and stamped them with fall sentiments, the same with the acorns, sunflowers, and pumpkins. I used all the different shaped pumpkin dies I had as well as the sunflowers and acorns.


The instructions for the Ferrero Rocher containers, I found them in Pinterest and followed them.

DT WW: Robin Redbreast- Happy Holidays Card

 





 Dear Scrappers,

This is my October post for Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog:

This month's sponsor is:


Their Epsy shop: SheepSkiDesigns

I chose the christmas-post-box-image for displaying the Redbreast Robin. Such a cute image.

This is a rather large image, so I decided to look for an sketch to make the most out of it and found this interesting sketch:

Sketch # 241


From sweet sketches challenge blog, see bellow for more info.

I used the matting die to cut the image and then used different distress inks and some HeroArts inks to color it. Then I traced the edges of the die cut unto a larger piece of printed blue cardstock to use as a mat. I fussy cut the blue mat and use the negative corners as part of the sketch embellishment.
I used foam squares to mount the die cut and some bakers twine to complete the look with this month's SCT Sampler sentiment die cut instead of the ribbon.

The outside of the card:

CraftWell DT: Fall Themed Shaker Bookmarks and Clips

 




Hi, 

This is my next post for Craftwell. 

For this project, I used The Autumn Splendor Kit (Queen & CO). I followed the kit's instructions for color combinations and assembly instructions after using my SNAP for die cutting the pieces. I made two sets of the scarecrow, pumpkin, and chocolate dipped apple shakers.

One set I converted them in corner bookmarks:


For making the shaker parts, I followed closely the instructions within the kit, but used other companies printed and solid color papers:


Here are the final shakers:


 I used the AUTUMN OUTLINE DIES to back up the shakers and make the second set refrigerator magnets. Here displayed with only the cloth pin without the magnet strip yet:


For the moment, I'm displaying the future magnets in my Whooo's Making the Right Choice? Poster Board:


 For making the corner bookmarks, here are the detailed Instructions. The only change I made was to cut the smaller squares at 2.5 in x 2.5 in to fit better in the bookmark.

WW DT: Let it snow -Christmas Card

 



 Dear Scrappers,

This is my October post for Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog:

For this month's challenge, sadly, we don't have a sponsor.

I used an sketch from jingle belles rock: merry-sketch-mas and chose the I chose the Winter Chickadee digital image for my card from :

I found some inspiration in the challenges bellow for my choice of papers and used a negative ornament cut (Sizzix and Hero Arts) from a previous project.
I decided to make a shaker using page protector as transparency and foam tape:


I didn't have read pearls, so I decided to complete the look by coloring the ones I had with permanent marker.

I stamped the inside of a CTMH white card with a Christmas sentiment using Candy Apple distress ink. I cut a piece of embossed cardstock to fit the outside of the card (it had Santa's image, so I liked it for this look) and some peppermint stripped printed paper for the center strip. 

I colored the Chickadee image and finished the shaker using some pearls and other Christmas fillers for the inside. I mounted all pieces together and used double side tape to add to the card.


I assembled the card using the sketch as a simple guide using double side tape, and added the colored pearls as final touch:

The inside:


A closer look at the shaker part: I like to move it!

Ornament die, Sizzix/HeroArts
SCT Delivered Holliday Sentiment Stamp
Embossed Cardstock, white, Michaels
Pearls colored in red with permanent marker, unknown company
