A Quick & Easy Box for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #15

I needed a quick & easy box for a little gift. I admit I am often last minute but this was an unexpected special request for a little baby girl.  What could be more special than homemade?! This little gift box was simple to make using the Window Box Thinlits.Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used elements from this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge board to create this sweet gift box.

No automatic alt text available.

I made Tic Tac Toe two ways: across the top and down the left side. I love how fun and easy it is to create by just choosing elements from the challenge boards each week! The floral squares are cut from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons inside the bottom of the box using the same color ink as the cardstock, Powder Pink.  It will be a nice surprise when they take the gift out.

One of the things I love about these boxes is the versatility! You can easily reuse this box as a little nightlight by putting a battery tealight inside. Click HERE to see a video, photo tutorial with directions, and 4 more box ideas I made using these dies.

There’s still time to play along with this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Challenges run from Thursday – Tuesday with winners announced on Wednesday.

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

My Favorite Holiday for the PALS Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals September 2017 Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month our theme is “My Favorite Holiday”.  Sit back and enjoy the view while the Pals treat you with projects for the upcoming Autumn and Winter holidays.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Stampin Up Spooky Night gift idea using Clear Acetate box, Pick a Pattern Washi Tape, and Spooky Night Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Every holiday is my favorite holiday! I decided to share a fun Halloween treat that is a great alternative to candy. So many kids nowadays have allergies so I thought this would be a different treat that also works as a fun game-to-go for the car. I love the acetate boxes in the holiday catalog and seem to be using them for more than just cards. (You can click HERE to see another project I made with these boxes.)

I used several different designs from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper for this project. There are so many fun patterns to choose from!

Stampin Up Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. For inspiration and ordering visit www.juststampin.com
Coordinating Colors: Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla

I adhered a 4 3/8 x 5 3/4 piece of DSP inside the acetate box with glue dots. I made the tic tac toe board on top with Pick A Pattern Washi Tape. The cute cat and jack-o-lantern erasers came from the Dollar Tree.

Stampin Up Spooky Night gift idea using Clear Acetate box, Pick a Pattern Washi Tape, and Spooky Night Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut a 4 1/2 x 12 piece of DSP to make a belly band to wrap the gift. I cut and adhered (2) 1/2 x 12 strips of coordinating DSP to the top and bottom of the belly band and simply wrapped it around the box and adhered in the back. I cut circles in Very Vanilla and Black using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits. I punched the cat from the DSP using the cat punch. The jack-o-lantern is fussy cut from another piece of DSP. The bakers twine makes a nice cat collar and the Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon ties is all together for a nice presentation.

I adhered these to the circles cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits.

It’s easy to just slide the belly band off to open.  The game pieces store inside the acetate box and are ready to play wherever you go!

I adhered these to the circles cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits.

This Halloween treat will last a lot longer than candy! It is a simple and inexpensive little treat to give. You can easily adapt this for different holidays by simply changing the DSP and erasers.  It would make a great stocking gift for Christmas or use different colored hearts for Valentine’s Day for a “lovely” little gift. Think of the possibilities that could go “inside the box”.

Papers: Spooky Night Designer Series Paper, Very Vanilla, Basic Black  Tools & Accessories: Acetate Card Box, Cat Punch, Stitches Shapes Framelits, Layering CIrcles Framelits, Pick A Pattern Washi Tape, Basic Black Baker’s Twine, Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Tear & Tape Adhesive

Painted Harvest Joy

Stampin Up Painted Harvest Christmas Joy Card Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp For inspiration and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

Oh how I love the Painted Harvest Stamp Set!  I am always looking for versatility in a stamp set and this one brings me “Joy”! I used the sunflower stamp as a wreath for this clean & simple Christmas card.

Stampin Up Painted Harvest Stamp Set. For inspiration and ordering visit www.juststampin.com

This card layout is one you can use over and over. Just change the DSP and stamp any sentiment on the panel. I used the Large Letter Framelits to cut out the letters in Real Red cardstock. These framelits are a bit pricey but I am so glad I made the investment. They are perfect for monogrammed cards. I use them a lot to personalize cards and gifts.

I stamped the 2 step wreath in Garden Green ink and added the berries in Real Red. The slim 1/8″ Real Red Ribbon makes a pretty bow. The stamped panel is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love the plaid DSP from the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper. There are many fun prints in this paper pack.

Here’s more ideas using this DSP to capture the Christmas spirit!

It’s time to start thinking about your Christmas cards. This is one you could easily mass produce to send. It’s quick & easy to make! My Whisper White panel measures 3 x 4 1/4 and the Real Red layer is 1/8″ larger (3 1/8 x 4 3/8).

Clean & Simple for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #14

This week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge is as easy as ABC! Check it out!

No automatic alt text available.

I bet you don’t need 3 chances to guess who designed this week’s challenge board! I love my ABC themes, even when it comes to Tic Tac Toe. I really hope you will play along this week! It’s so simple and fun to just pick 3 and create. I chose the left row going down: acetate, dimension, gold.

Stampin Up Stylized Birthday card idea using Fabulous Foil Acetate - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Navy and gold are a classic color combination.  I love the font in the Stylized Birthday stamp! This single stamp is probably the most used stamp in my collection.  It works on the front of a card or the inside. I heat embossed it in gold on a 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of cardstock and layered it on gold foil that’s 1/8″ larger. I adhered the sentiment layer to the acetate with dimensionals then used Fast Fuse to adhere the acetate to my card. I do not usually do it in this order; however, once you add the sentiment you can see where to put the adhesive on the back of the acetate so you don’t see it.

This clean & simple card can be adapted for so many different occasions. Just change the sentiment and you could make this a thank you card, wedding, thinking of you, etc. Here’s another one I made using Tranquil Tide cardstock and the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.

Stampin Up Watercolor Christmas card idea with Fabulous Foil Acetate - Jeanie Stark StampinUp For inspiration and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

The star of these projects is the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. You get 6  12 x 12 sheets in a pack: 2 each of 3 single-sided designs.  The acetate sheets have gold foil on one side; silver foil on the other.

I wish you could see these in person…the acetate makes these cards so rich and elegant. And the best part is they are so simple and fun to make. (You know how I love to heat emboss!)  What color will you make?
