Birthday Cupcake Candle Holder

Hello and happy Friday!  Today I wanted to share this cute candle holder that I recently made for one of my sons' teacher's birthday.
I used SnapDragon Snippets' file #230364 in the Silhouette store and my Cameo to create it.  It was very simple to assemble.  I used red line tape for a secure hold.  The tag was tied to the top with Lime Grapesicle Trendy Twine.
The papers I used are from The Paper Studio's Birthday Extravaganza stack.  The candle I placed inside is meant to look like a cupcake.  It was from Dollar Tree!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Witchy Halloween Night Card

Hello all!  I am back with another Halloween card for the SumMore Fun blog today.  I used a sentiment stamp from the Victorine Originals Halloween Kids stamp set, die cuts, and patterned paper to create it.
I found some lime green patterned paper that would create a fun scene for the Spellbinders witch and bat die cuts.  A huge THANK YOU to my crafty friend, Lisa, for sending that die cut set my way!  I die cut one layer of black cardstock and 2 layers of yellow craft foam and glued them together.  I like the yellow shadow effect that made, almost like the moonlight hilighting the witch and bats!  The lime panel was mounted onto a black die cut of a GMD Loopy Rectangle die.
For the sentiment stamp, I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with Zing! Black Glitter embossing powder.  It really gave the sentiment sparkle and shine!  Perfect for bringing attention to the sentiment.  The final touch was adding enamel dots in coordinating colors.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Halloween Treat Envelopes

Good morning!   It's Levi again, posting for the Trendy Twine blog. This time I made some tasty Halloween treats!
I started with 5x5 pieces of paper from DCWV's Spooky Halloween stack. Using the envelope punch board, I punched and scored at 2 inches. Once I folded on the score lines you have to add a glue dot to keep the front flap shut.
To finish them off you wrap the twine around the center. The colors of Trendy Twine I used were Totally PumpkinOrangesicleTotally Black, and Gray Licorice. A snack sized Hershey's bar fits perfectly inside. That is how you make a Halloween treat holder.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Kick Cancer's Butt Card

Hello and good Wednesday morning!  I am on the SumMore Fun blog today with this card.  October is a great month to remember those who are battling cancer.  This card went to the mom of a friend of mine who is doing just that.  The stamps I used on it are from the SumMore Fun You Can stamp set.  Pssst...you can get that whole set for ONLY $5.99 right now!
The focal point of the card was created by taking a 4" square of white cardstock and the cancer ribbon stamp from the You Can stamp set and doing the wreath builder technique.  The inks I used were Distress Oxides in Dusty Concord and Pine Needles.  After that was fully dry, I die cut around it with a GMD Pleated Square die.  I added an accent on top of that with another die cut square with a Totally Grape Trendy Twine cancer ribbon and enamel dots.
I used a couple colors of patterned paper for the background of the card and wrapped Totally Grape and Twisted Lime Trendy Twines around it.  The sentiment is also from the You Can stamp set and was stamped in black.  The finishing touch was a few more glitter enamel dots.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
