Scallop Tag Topper Card (masculine)

Hello Crafters,

I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t get enough of this Scallop Tag Topper Punch. I think it may have something to do with just how versatile it is and what can be created with it!

For the card base, I started with a piece of Soft Sky card stock measuring 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″.

Measure and mark the centre along the shorter side. Flip the card and repeat. Shimmy it into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (#133324) and line up the mark with the centre of the scallop punch.

I used the High Tide DSP (#132992) and By the Tide Stamp set (W#131910, C#129120) and fussy cut the fish and adhered with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set (W#128706, C#122497) and punched with the Large Oval punch (#119855).

As I mentioned the other day , I am having the best time creating new and exciting treat style boxes of all shapes and sizes!

Here is the second style but this time, this one closes up so the treats don’t fall out.

For the card base, I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.

The tops of the box are punched with the Scallop Tag Topper punch (#133324). I just love this punch!

Chocolate Treats

Hello Crafters,

Anyone out there who doesn’t mind a bit a chocolate???

While shopping at Aldi recently I found these cute little chocolate bars sold in packs of 5 and they are only 40g each. A much better option than those family sized blocks right? Yes, I think so. I can’t just stop after eating one row!

I used the new Scallop Tag Topper Punch (#133324) which is available in the new Occasions Catalogue (28 Jan – 30 June 2014).

Chocolate Treat Holders     Chocolate Treat Holder

The one of the left with cupcake (Build a Cupcake Punch #121807), has the pink band around the silver card to hold it together. (See it open in the next picture).

The one of the right, was a little more fiddly to create, making it more box like at the bottom section to hold the chocolate in place. See close up picture below!

Chocolate Treat Holders

This was a more solid, but if I was make many of these I would probably opt to make the first option!!!

What a great idea for party favours or to give a work colleague on their birthday. Who wouldn’t appreciate one of these?!!!

The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo Stampin’ Ink using the Best Of Birthdays Stamp set (#132929) available for a limited time. To order online for $25.95 Click Here

PCCCS#78 ~ Card Sketch

Hello Crafters,

This week at Paper Craft Crew Challenges is a card sketch PCCCS078.

This is my first time entering a challenge at Paper Craft Crew Challenges and I am loving the fact that I can try new things, although I do tend to struggle with Card Sketches, but this may have something to do with the fact that I am always trying new things and crafting outside my comfort zone!!!

PCCCS#78

I love the Chevron punch and the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) coordinates so well with it. When I embossed the black card though, you couldn’t really see the texture, so I used a sponge and lightly added some White Craft Ink to make it pop!

As you may have noticed, there are a few more “new” items I have used from the latest Occasions Catalogue; the See Ya Later stamp set, Fresh Prints DSP and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch! This punch is sure to be an awesome item that everyone should invest in, to make your own tags and gifts (which you will see soon on my blog, so make sure you return!)

Here is a closer look!

PCCCS#78

How lovely is this stamp? It could be used for Valentines Day or for someone who may be a little down in the dumps and need a lift to cheer them up!!!
