Buffalo Check Background and Cat Punch


It is sweltering hot and humid today in Minnesota! But I know I shouldn’t complain, at least we don’t have hurricanes here. It just seems like we get everything else though! Anyway, too hot to be outside, so it is perfect day to be inside in the air conditioning PAPERCRAFTING!

Here is what I made today! I wanted to show you more samples with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp. I made a halloween card and treat holder.  I used the Cat Punch as the focal point.


I stamped happy halloween on a crumb cake piece of cardstock and added a pearl to the corner which I colored with a black sharpie.


I punched out the cat with the Cat Punch and mounted on a circle of Crushed Curry cardstock.


Here is the treat holder. Again using the punched out cat as the focal point! Don’t you just love the Buffalo Check Background stamp?


This treat holder is so easy to make. Just cut to fit the width of your cello bag. Stampin’Up! does have 3 x 6 gusseted bags in the catalog. This particular bag is a flat bag. But the gusseted ones you can really make some cute treat holders that are 3-D.  I am out of the gusseted bags right now so I will show you one by Kathy Maurer a fellow Stampin’Up! Demonstrator.

Halloween Treat Bag made with Stampin' Up!'s Spooky Cat Stamp Set and Cat Punch. For details, go to my Wednesday, September 20, 2017 blog at http://www.stampinup.net/blog/2130686/entry/spooky_cat_treat_bag

Isn’t Kathy’s treat holder just darling!  I made a bunch of these last year for Halloween, which is why I am out of the gusseted bags. It is time to reorder these, they are so much fun to work with and I like the fact that they will stand alone.


I hope you all like my projects! I sure enjoyed making them. Supplies will be listed below. Be sure to take time to CREATE! It is good for you!

3-D projects, birthday, Masculine Cards

Truly Tailored Masculine Card and Treat Holder


Here is a birthday card and treat for the true gentleman in your life! My projects are made with the stamps and accessories in the True Gentleman Suite of products found on page 44 of the Occasions Catalog.


The card is made with Chocolate Chip Cardstock as the base of the card. I adhered the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon to the card with Tear and Tape adhesive. I added some Night of Navy Enameled circle shapes to the focal point of the card.


I finished off the inside of the card with a Very Vanilla cardstock panel and stamped the birthday wish with Night of Navy Stampin’Pad. I also stamped a couple of elements that came in the stamp set above and below the sentiment. I added a strip of the True Gentlemen DSP to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel just to pull it all together.


This is a fun treat holder to make! It uses the 2 ” x  8″ cellophane bags that are in the Annual Stampin’Up! Catalog. The candy is Hershey Nuggets that I wrapped with the True Gentleman DSP just cut the paper to 1″ x 3 1/4″ and adhere with a glue dot. The tray in the treat holder is 2″ x 5″ and each long side is scored at a little less that 1/4″ on each side. I used Night of Navy Cardstock for the tray.


The tag is punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch after stamping with an image from the Truly Tailored Stamp set. The punch and the stamp set are sold as a bundle for a savings of 10%! It is called the Truly Tailored Bundle.


I hope you all like my card and treat holder and it inspires you to CREATE!

Above is the Mini Treat Bag Framelits. You can make your own little bag out of any paper you want! Designer Series Paper is great. The above sample was made with the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. 

Tip: Be sure to use Tear and Tape Adhesive to put your bag together. It is a strong adhesive and will hold the edges together better than Snail Adhesive.
