Kate’s Love You a Latte Card!

Kate joins us today to share a fun way to get 2 cards from one basic card design!

For this card, Kate was inspired by the die cut Heart design from her original Challenge 21 card! She gave it a new look by changing up the colors and adding cute coffee cup images and a sentiment from Love You a Latte! She created the layers using Stitched Rectangle Stackables and Scalloped Rectangle Stackables!

Here’s a look at the original card!

Thanks so much for sharing your adorable card with us today, Kate! I love the idea of switching up a basic design to make lots of awesome cards!

Jessica’s Cute Candy Wrapper!

Challenge 15 will be open until Sunday, November 5 at 11:59 PM ET

Jessica joins us today with her cute and clever take on gift packaging!

Good morning!  Jess here with an idea for our Clever Gift Packaging challenge!  I don’t actually own many of the treat box or gift holder dies from Lawn Fawn (yet!) so I decided to give you an idea of how to create gift wrapping without using a treat-specific die!

My husband and I love these yummy gourmet chocolate bars and I thought it would be fun to slip one into his lunch on Halloween! But I wanted to gussy up the packaging a little so I created a s’mores themed gift wrapper!  I started by die-cutting the Outside In Stitched Rectangle from the middle of a 12×12 piece of Armoire patterned paper from the Knock on Wood collection. Then I trimmed the paper down to a 4”x9” strip with the rectangular opening in the center. I adhered a piece of vellum behind the rectangle and then stamped the sentiment from Love You S’more onto the vellum with Versafine and heat-embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I turned the strip over and stamped the flames with Versafine and heat-embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder. I colored the flames with Copic markers on the back side of the vellum to get a more muted look.

Next I stamped the adorable squirrel and marshmallow from Love You S’more onto white cardstock with Copic-friendly Jet Black ink and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I adhered them over the vellum window and then added a few accents with a white gel pen. Finally I die-cut the pink hearts from the Hearts die set, adhered them to the vellum window, and added a layer of clear sparkle for a little extra shimmer!

And that’s it! You have 2 weeks to get crafty and create some clever gift packaging for our current challenge and I can’t wait to get more ideas from all of you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
