This month our hop is all about gratitude! And I'm grateful (and excited) to show you this pretty "Thank You" card!

Winter Woods Thank You - 2

I used the gorgeous Winter Woods stamp set in Merry Merlot and stamped the image a second time without reinking on a smaller layer to get the lighter portion.
Winter Woods Thank You - 2 (1)

The card is a fun fold and opens up with an accordion fold on the inside.  The inside is 4" x 9 3/4" and is scored at 1 1/2", 3", and 4 1/2". The front and back "covers" are Merry Merlot 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

I used the Rooted In Nature stamp set to stamp on the folds with Merry Merlot ink - I stamped 3 times without reinking to get the light and darks.

The pretty Tin Tile embossing folder adds detail to the front and the GORGEOUS Copper & Merry Merlot ribbon makes it even prettier!

Halloween Candy Corn Card

Candy Corn Spooky Sweets www.suestampfield.com

So excited that October is here!  I just wanted to share this quick and easy Halloween card with you - scroll down for the dimensions and details!

Candy Corn Spooky Sweets - 2
I wanted the card to look like Candy Corn so I used Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry cardstock and cut the panels 1 3/4" x 4".  The cardbase is Basic Black cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  The greeting is from the Spooky Sweets stamp set which is available as a bundle with the Spooky Bats punch. The witches hat is from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper. This card was inspired by a candy corn card done by demonstrator Lorri Heiling, you can see her version here. Thanks for the inspiration Lorri!

I ran the panels through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder to add some texture.  I love this folder, it turns your standard cardstock into fancy linen textured paper! I used the Layering Circles Dies and the Stitched Shapes Dies for the focal point and added the hat. It's hard to see in the photo but I added a Rhinestone to the hat and colored it black with the Basic Black Dark Stampin' Blend marker. Stampin' Blends are alcohol markers and are permanent when dry.

I had fun with the inside of the card too!  The spooky cloud stamp and greeting stamp are both from the Spooky Sweets stamp set.  The cloud (mist? whatever - lol!) is stamped in Smoky Slate.  Every week I do exclusive videos for the members of my Stampfield Stars team of passionate paper crafters and share with them what I have been creating.  This card was one of their favorites so I thought I would share it here too!! If you love Stampin' Up! products and would like to join our family we would love to have you.  You can get information about joining here or contact me with any questions.

Santa Face Takeout Box Gift Card Holder

Santa Face Lemon Builder Punch Gift Card Box Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 21

Today I wanted to share with you this adorable (and easy!) little Santa Box!

Acorn Lemon Builder Punch Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 1

The box is made from the new Takeout Thinlits Dies from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. Not only do you get the die to make the box (just cut two), you also get a number of other dies to make windows and tags for your box!

Santa Face Lemon Builder Punch Gift Card Box Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats

For the face of the Santa I used the Lemon Builder Punch. I punched out a full lemon from Whisper White and embossed it with the Swirls and Curls embossing folder. I punched out two of the leaves with no stems for the mustache, and a 1/2" circle from Very Vanilla for the nose. I sponged the "nose" with a sponge dauber dipped in Petal Pink ink to give it a rosy glow. The belt is a 3/8" x 2" piece of Basic Black cardstock trimmed to fit the box.

The "hat" is just the closure flap of the box. I left it up and cut off all of the other top flaps. It looks just like a hat when you add a 1/2" punched circle of Whisper White for the pom pom! The hat "trim" is a piece of Whisper White 3/8" x 2 1/2".

I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to assemble the box and to add the embellishments. The beard, nose, pom, and mustache are popped up on Dimensionals.

I also used the Lemon Builder Punch to make this cute acorn - click the photo for a tutorial on how I did it!

Happy fall everyone - and happy "Holiday Catalog" time!  Today I'm sharing with you some fun ways to decorate the adorable tiny takeout box made with the Takeout Thinlits Dies from the Holiday Catalog!

Acorn Lemon Builder Punch Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 9

First I have this cute little fall basket box - very simple to make with a few punches and an embossing folder.  Scroll down to see the steps for making the acorn.

Two more super simple little boxes decorated with a punch and some paper scraps to look like Santa and his elf.

And another adorable Santa! Tune in to tomorrow's blog post for the steps to build this little cutie!

Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 16

These are what the dies from the set look like when you cut them out.  You need to cut out two of the box shape to build your box.

Inside my little acorn basket is a cute acorn shaped gift card from Starbucks and some chocolate. I added some Copper Trim to the gift card since it had a hole for ribbon.

Acorn Lemon Builder Punch Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 15

To make a basket instead of a box I simply cut off the flaps of the box before assembling.

Acorn Lemon Builder Punch Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 16

To build the acorn I used the Lemon Builder punch along with Soft Suede and Crumb Cake cardstock.

For the "cap" on the acorn I punched out a little more then half of the lemon the long way on a strip of Soft Suede cardstock.

I embossed both the acorn and the cap with the Subtle Embossing Folder.

The Subtle embossing folder adds a linen like texture to your cardstock.

The leaf with the stem from the Lemon Builder Punch became the stem of the acorn.

Acorn Lemon Builder Punch Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 15
I put some adhesive on the back of the cap, attached the acorn, and then attached the leaf so the stem stuck out above the cap. The stamp "Enjoy" is from the Takeout Treats stamp set that is available as a bundle with the dies.  I used a 3/4" Circle Punch to punch out the word.

Simple Santa Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 15

To make the simple Santa box, I cut out a box in Real Red and assembled it. Then I cut out a "beard" by placing a strip of Whisper White card stock in my Pretty Little Label Punch and punched out a portion. I attached it to the top of the box and trimmed the ends to fit. Next I added a strip of Basic Black cardstock, 1/2" wide x 2" to the box and trimmed off the ends to fit the box and match the slant of the side. I adhered a 3/4" x 3/4" square of Gold Glimmer Paper to the center of the black strip.  Then I adhered a 1/2" x 1/2" square of Basic Black cardstock to the center of the Glimmer square. 

Simple Elf Takeout Thinlits Dies Takeout Treats - 15

The elf box was created the same way as the Santa, but I punched a strip of Real Red cardstock with the Pretty Little Label Punch and did not slide the punch in as far.

I used the stamps from the Takeout Treats stamp set and some of the other dies in the set to decorate the backside of the box.
