If you have been following me this week you may have noticed how easy it is to pull out different cards that coordinate and make simple cards, treats and more. The card I am featuring is one of my favorite fun folds, not only because it easy but because it can be used in several different ways. I will be making it as a gift card holder but you could also stamp on each section or even used as a photo card,  invitation or announcement.

To get started you will need:

  • Santa’s Workshop Memories & More card pack
  • poppy parade card– cut 1 card base in half at 4 1/4″ X 6 1/4″, save the other 1/2 to make another one 🙂
  • poppy parade card stock– cut 1 at 4 1/4″ X 9 3/4″ and score at 3 1/4″ & 6 1/2″
  • adhere one 4″ X 6″ card to the poppy parade card base
  • adhere one 4″ X 3″ card to the front fold, i added an arrow sticker to this card
  • trim one 4″ X 3″ card to 3″ X 3″, adhere to the middle section with tear & tape on 3 sides to form a pocket.
  • adhere one 4″ X 3″ card to the last fold, I added a tree sticker to the lower right corner.
  • Adhere the tri fold to the card base centering it and finish by adding a few red rhinestones for bling.

Simple treats….

IMG_1159Looking for easy holiday treats for your children’s classmates, your coworkers, neighbors, friends or to hand out at holiday gatherings? Today I have two treats that I have made over and over to hand out. To create them I used the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More card pack plus a few extra supplies. (listed at the bottom of this post)

Treat #1 Santa’s Elf

Die cut two 2 1/2″ scallop squares, score at 1″ and adhere to each other. (you could also cut two 2 1/2″ squares)

Punch out 1 garden green starburst, punch out the elf from one of the 3″ X 4″ cards with a 1 3/4″ circle punch.


Wrap a piece of the poppy parade ribbon around and tie a knot to form an opening to slide in a snack size candy bar. Adhere the garden green starburst to the front and then attach the elf with a couple of dimensionals. Finish off with a rhinestone for the tip of his hat.


 Treat #2 Santa’s Nuggets

You will need 5 Hersey nuggets, cut five 1″ X 3″ pieces from 2 coordinating cards and cover the nuggets. Slide into a 2″ X 8′ cello bag and set aside. To create the topper I cut a 2″ X 3″ piece from one of the cards and scored it at 1 1/2″, cover the top opening of the bag and staple closed. Wrap a piece of garden green bakers twine around twice and tie a bow, add the Santa and “YUM” with dimensionals.

*I like to use tear and tape to secure the paper around the nuggets 🙂

I hope you are ready to create your treats! Below I have added the products used to create these treats, many of the items will be used on other projects I will be sharing this week.

Merry Christmas tag…


Would you like a stamp set that you can make tags for the upcoming Holidays? I have picked one that I think you will have a lot of fun creating with “Many Blessings”….I know I have. My first project was created with the candy cane image and Merry Christmas sentiment. The best part about creating tags is that they can be used for so many things. This tag would be great to add to a gift bag, it could also be added to the front of a card or used like I have added to a box of treats.


To create the tag I stamped the image in Memento ink on whisper white card stock then die cut it with a square stitched shape and colored it in with Stampin’ Blends. Stamp the sentiment with Memento ink  and then cut out, I softened the edges with a sponge and crumb cake ink. Tie a piece of the real red ribbon around the square, add a linen thread bow and tuck the sentiment under to look like a hanging tag.

I used the Dashing Along Designer Series paper which was a Hostess Special last month so if you weren’t lucky enough to get your own pack you can pick from any of the other wonderful Stampin’ Up! Designer Series paper…..back to the tag base 🙂 the base measures 3″ X 4″ (you can get 12 from 1 sheet of 12 X 12 paper), I trimmed off the top to corners and use the Detailed Trio Punch the hole in the tag. I attached the whisper white to the stripe tag with dimensionals.

To add it to the Acetate treat box I created a belly band with garden green card stock (cut 2 at 1 1/2″ X 8 1/2″) attach the to strips together and then wrap around the box, adhere together and trim off any extra card stock. I used two different ribbons, real red cotton and whisper white tulle to tie on the tag and tie a bow. to finish it off I punched a couple of silver sprigs and slipped under the bow 🙂

*the candy canes were purchased from the Dollar store “Bobs sweet Stripes”…don’t they fit perfect in or boxes!

Thank You…(Color Your season #2)

From flowers to falling leaves the Color Your Season bundle will have you playing with color and with New Watercolor Pencils you will be set!I used the crushed curry, cajun craze and cherry cobbler  watercolor pencils and a blender pen on today’s cardWatermarked(2018-08-13-2120)

The card base is crushed curry cut at 4 1/4″ X 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. I stamped the leaves several times on the card front with crushed curry classic ink, stamping off first to give a softer look. To give the card front some extra texture I embossed it with the Subtle embossing folder. Add a 2 /12″ X 4 1/4″ piece of the wood texture designer series stack.

The scallop plaque was created with very vanilla card stock and the Color Your Season smallest stitched framlits, Thank You was embossed using VersaMark ink and gold embossing powder. I stamped several leaves in crumb cake ink then colored them in with the watercolor pencils and a blender pen. 

To put it all together I adhered a piece of the burlap ribbon and attached the plaque with dimensionals. I die cut several leaves in cajun craze and crushed curry and adhered them with glue dots behind the plaque and added a linen thread bow.

I hope this project has Inspired you, the supplies I uses are listed below and linked to my online store.
