Holiday Mini Class Projects

Good Morning Stampers! Wow, this is the first time I post in the morning, Yay me! As I promised yesterday, today I am posting the pictures of projects I made from a Holiday Mini Class I participated in through Barbara Jackson, from the UdderlyAwesome Stampers Group. This group consists of all of my uplines, sidelines, downlines etc. They're a great bunch of stampers! This class was similar to the Halloween Treats Class that Angie Juda had available. Barbara mailed me all the supplies ( I was unable to attend the class) and instructions and I just stamped and put them together. So much fun!

Aren't these projects fabulous?! I enjoyed making these very much and think they came out great!

This was a cute little Halloween Treat Box that was made out of just 1/2 a sheet of Elegant Eggplant Cardstock! The fence image is the Frightful Fence Jumbo Wheel from the Holiday Mini. The Cat, bat and pumpkin images are all from the Halloween Frights set also from the Holiday Mini. The fence was stamped and embossed onto Glossy White Cardstock. The background was brayered with Summer Sun, and the moon was a 1-3/8" circle punched out of a Post-It Note and attached to the cardstock. I then brayered over the moon with Pumpkin Pie and Elegant Eggplant. I forgot to mention that you will do this before stamping the fence onto the cardstock. You then remove the "moon mask" and you will have a moon in your background!
The cat was stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, embossed and then cut out. The pumpkin was stamped in Pumpkin Pie Craft Ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, embossed and then cut out. Then I adhered the Glossy White Cardstock to the Old Olive piece of Cardstock and then adhered this to the already assembled box. I attached the handles by punching a 1/16" inch circle through the box, handles and ribbon and attached them with black brads. The last part is to add the candy filled cello bag and it's finished!

This Halloween card was also quick and easy to make. The Only Orange piece of Cardstock was stamped with the Canvas Background Stamp in Basic Black. The Basic Black Cardstock piece was adhered to the very left of the Kiwi Kiss Card Base. The Only Orange was then ahdered to the very left of the Basic Black piece. Before attaching the Basic Black to the Old Olive, make sure you attach the Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon to the Only Orange and to the back of the Basic Black, then attach this to the Old Olive. I hope I didn't confuse you!

All of the images used are from the Eat, Drink and Be Scary Set from the Holiday Mini. The hat and Definition of Halloween images were stamped onto Old Olive Cardstock using Basic Black Ink. The witch's hat was cut out and I attached Fire Square Rhinstone Brads in Orange (small and large). The definition was distressed along the edges and I then sponged the edges using Basic Black ink. Both were adhered to the front of the card using Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, you just stamp the little spider in Basic Black ink coming down the top, right side of the cardstock. The tag is made out of the Tag Punch and Small Tag punch using Basic Black and Only Orange Cardstock then attaching it to the inside using Snail Adhesive. That's it!

This cute little Thanksgiving Favor Bag is so quick to assemble and you just won't be able to help but fall in love with the cute Scarecrow! He is from the Happy Blessings Set from the Holiday Mini. Before assembling the bag you will stamp the pumpkin and haystack images from the Happy Blessings Set unto the More Mustard Cardstock in More Mustard Ink. You will then take the Key Tag Punch and punch in from the left side and stamp the Sentiment from the set on the right side, in Basic Brown Ink. He's stamped in Basic Brown unto Whisper White Cardstock and colored in using the Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens. Then cut him out and adhere him with Stampin' Dimensionals to the left of the punched out Key Tag.
You will then fill the cello bag with candy corn or whatever treats you'd like to give and attach that with Snail to the More Mustard Cardstock. Then take a piece of Autumn Vine Designer Series Paper and fold it over the More Mustard Bag. Punch out 2 holes with the Crop-A-Dile and thread a piece of Rope Twine through to keep the bag closed. After tying it up, I tied a knot at each end of the Rope Twine and unraveled the twine. That's it!

This festive card uses the Sentiment from the Elegant Cheer Set and the Tree from the Scandinavian Season Set in the Holiday Mini. The card base is made out of Riding Hood Red Cardstock. I didn't take a picture of the inside of the card, but I took the Scandinavian Wheel and rolled it down the center of the inside of the card. The tree was stamped in Always Artichoke ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and colored parts of the tree with a Blender Pen and Riding Hood Red Ink. The tree is next attached to a piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock and then added two Red Square Rhinestones (small and large) on the tree. Then I attached the Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon to the left of the Always Artichoke piece of Cardstock and used Snail to attach it to the back of the Always Artichoke Cardstock. Then I attached the tree to the Always Artichoke piece. Next, I stamped the Holiday Cheer Sentiment in Riding Hood Red onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock and punched it using the Designer Label Punch. I then took the Vanilla Hodgepodge frame and lay it over the Sentiment and attached the brads to the frame and cardstock. I then Snailed this onto the Artichoke Cardstock and attached the entire piece to the Riding Hood Red Cardstock.
