Pumpkin treat box, Dandelion card and last Saturday's make & take

Hi everyone! Well, it's getting close to all those holidays and one of my favorites coming up is Halloween. I bought this new punch from the store and had no idea what I was going to make with it. And because it is a punch, you have to really make sure that what you are using can be punched. So I ended up using this Sizzix XL box die. LOL! Turned out to be a square pumpkin head. And the stamp was in the sale bin which I found while browsing the store on Saturday. I made the handle from the MS drippy goo punch. I embossed the box with a cuttlebug folder.
This next card I made uses the new shapeabilities die from Spellbinders. It is called contemporary hearts. I made it to give to someone as a thank you card. I actually made 2 so a sample is at the store.
This last card was a slider card that we did for our make & take this past Saturday. I saw this on the Hero website couple years ago but never got around to figuring it out until last week.When you pull on the tag, the card slides open.It is so cute and super easy to make! Thanks to all the ladies that stopped by to make it. Hope you're all enjoying the new work week! Have a great Tuesday!

Another shipment of punches and a thank you card

Hi everyone! Yesterday, another shipment of punches arrived at the store. Please call if you were waiting for a certain punch.Here's a card that I made over the weekend using the Dovecraft daisy punch and also Doodlebug chunky glitter. The easiest way that I found to use this glitter is I squirted glitter glue for the center of the daisy and poured the chunky glitter over it. It dries quite fast and isn't messy at all unlike ultra fine glitter. The orange frame is a new Sizzix die called scallop frame and stamps are all Hero Arts and I used a Sizzix textured impressions folder for the blue card base.
Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

Punch sample

Hi everyone! We have some very talented customers! One of our customers Cheryl, brought us this real pretty favor box that she made using punches. The flowers are punched from 2 different scallop circle punches and she cut to make each petal on the flower.
The leaves are from a scallop heart punch and she folded the heart in half and used a paper crimper to make the design on the leaves. The flourish looks like it was cut from a die but I'm not sure what die it is from.
Hope you're all enjoying your weekend and don't forget to check out the sale at the store on the iTop brad maker from Imaginisce.
