Treat Box and Card Set – dt project for Creative Embellishments

Wow! I can’t believe it’s Thursday again already! Time sure flies these days. I’m up with a project on the Creative Embellishments blog. This time, I decided to go off page again…I seem to be doing that a lot lately! With Halloween around the corner, I figured I’d make a super quick and easy tutorial for an altered/upcycled treat box and matching card. Here’s how it turned out:

treat box step 7

I started with the packaging left over from my phone’s silicone protective cover. I took out the insert and used it for the base of my tag which later becomes a bookmark for my kiddos once they’ve opened their treats. I cut a notch at the top where the display hook opening is so I can attach ribbon, fibers and trim and still close the case:

I covered both sides of the insert with patterned paper. I decided not to decorate this part further because the wrapped candy will be rubbing against the purple side and I didn’t want the other side to be too bulky to close. I then decorated the outside of the case w/the fabulous CE chippies which I altered with Distress paint, acrylic paint and Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal.

Lastly, I created a card to match using more CE laser cut chipboard pieces.

Every Day Card – Entry for Cardabilities #83

Now that Alex is back in school and it’s his first year of Junior High, I wanted to make him a little card to let him know we’re thinking of him and to wish him a great day…every day. 🙂 Those are my last words to him as he get on the bus each day…”I love you! Have a great day at school!”

To make the card, I used an altered bus chippy by Creative Embellishments and some gears that I snipped off of one of their steampunk corner pieces. I paired those up with ABC Primer paper by Graphic 45, topped it off with a Prima flair button and diecut strips for the sentiment. Here’s what I came up with for the Cardabilities sketch #83:

Materials:

Creative Embellishments chipboard bus (smaller of the 2 pack) and gears
G45 ABC Primer paper
Prima flair
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze
alpha stickers from my stash
Pitt big brush markers
Sizzix die

TFL!

Scrum-didily-umptious card for the Pagemaps 1-2-3-4 card challenge

If you didn’t already know, Pagemaps is filled with fabulous challenges for layouts and cards. This one combines a cards sketch with a recipe for an added twist. You need to use 1 button or brad, 2 patterned papers, 3 layers and 4 colors. For my take on the sketch and recipe, I used only the Bo Bunny Sweet Tooth collection and a bit of twine from my stash. Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s the fun sketch to use:

Relax card for Bo Bunny May Card Challenge

There’s a fabulous sketch for May on the Bo Bunny blog. It’s perfect for any style of card making, so my first instinct was to create a mixed media card for it. After a little more thought though, I decided to create one using mostly paper so that I’d be using more BB product. 😀 For my card, I went with their Barefoot and Bliss collection from a couple of years ago. I love the bright cheery colors in this line. Everything used on my card is from this one collection! Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s the fun, versatile sketch for the challenge:
