It’s …………….. another box ……………….. about 7″, so the cardstock would have been 9″ wide by by 12″ long I think and scored at 1″ either side of the centre from memory – should write this stuff down!

It’s amazing just how many markers I use when I colour too, but in truth you could use far less than this and darken as you go.


One more box and a card to do now.  No goat has been found, so I will have to think of something else – I’m thinking image transfer from the picture of the blessed creature from the Oxfam site onto a piece of stampboard at the mo.

Adam … you’re so tweet (RRP-007)


I need to use this stamp, but had to come up with some kind of festive twist with it.



Actually, I’ve moved things on again since taking this, and have made a rectangular box to place a goat in (yes, a goat ….. well, a cyber goat anyway from Oxfam) – I thought I’d put a little label that says “care:  contents contain nuts” on it too.  I am currently in the process of cutting out a massive amount of Limeade Snowflakes and circle middles to go all around the edge.  As well as the cyber goat there will be an Adam stamp (mounted on kling) and some liquer choccies.

BOO – 2-5-7-10 Bag

a day late I know, but Toodles has been invited to a Halloween Party on Friday by one of her friends. So this is a quick 2-5-7-10 bag to take some sweeties in.
  • Stitched paper (double-sided paper) by WrMemoryKeepers
  • Scrap of reverse side of matching striped paper by WRMemoryKeepers
  • White Prism cardstock
  • Button from BG Obsucre button pack
  • Bright Green & Orange DMC embroidery thread
  • Corner rounder punch (to make scallop)
  • COPIC Markers – Skin White (E00); Chinese Orange (YR09); Cadmium Yellow (Y15); Olive (G99); Honey (Y39); Amethyst (V17); Verenose Green (G09) & Africano (E27)
  • Glossy Accents (not shown on picture added after)
  • Black Perlidoodles (not shown on picture added after)
  • Stamp: Halloween Sheet (Tanda)
  • Stamp: Vintage Alphabet (Scrapgoods)
  • Versafine Black Ink
  • Hot Cocoa Vintage Ink (Ranger)
  • Hook & loop sticky pad
  • Score-it board
  • Hot Cocoa Vintage Dye Ink by Ranger

How to:

  1. With stitched paper make up a 2-5-7-10 bag using the Scor-it board.
  2. Stamp Witch image on to white cardstock with the Versafine ink, and colour in with COPIC markers. Matt onto orange side of co-ordinating WRMK paper.
  3. Using the corner rounder make a scallop edge to this matted image – I start in the middle and work out both sides. Run round all the edges with the Hot Cocoa Ink (ohhhh, and it smells so yummy as it’s scented). Afix to the bag towards the bottom.
  4. Stamp out “BOO” on white cardstock with the Hot Cocoa ink and matt with blue WRMK paper, affix to the flap.
  5. Make two holes centrally on the flap and tie on the BG button with green and orange DMC thread.
  6. On the underside of the flap affix the hook & loop fastening.
  7. Fill with child friendly sweeties – and eat a few whilst you do it.

After I’d taken the photo, I added some glossy accents to the pumpkin, and also some black dots on the flap with Perlidoodles.

Take the small border from the Stickeroos set, cut in half and add the two piece about halfway down the card on each side (that way you can’t see a join).
  2. Cut a piece of the watercolour pattern paper and cut to around 5×5. Use the star punch to make the ticket corners (see previous posts about this). Run the Gingerbread Versamagic around the edges.
  3. Add a Candyfloss Zoomz to all of the corners, except the bottom righthand one.
  4. Take a piece of the BG Brown paper and cut to approx. 41/4 x 41/4, and use the star punch to make the ticket corners.
  5. Take the flower image from the Stickeroos sheet, and add Glossy Accents to some of the flowers and sprinkle on microbeads. Set aside to dry.
  6. Once dry matt onto the Green BG pattern paper and trim using knife and clear ruler to 1/4 edge. Use the Star punch on the corners, but leave intact this time. Run the Gingerbread Versamagic around the edges.
  7. Add a Green Crazy Daisy from the “Jasmine” bottle, and place a Chiaro Zoomz in the centre.
  8. Tie the piece of green fibre around the spine.

All done.

Thank you by the way for all your lovely comments. They are so appreciated. BTW Lauren, email me your addy (address in the side bar), and I will send you a card.

** I’ve just got really irritated with my eldest – he’s 19 if I let him live – he’s always taking my stuff and doing inappropriate things with it. My beloved MM knife has gone missing and he’s probably whittling bloom bits of wood with it again ** Am I the only one who experiences a red mist when kids touch my precious stuff?

BTW, I’ve still got four more stickers to use from the Stickeroos sheet – they are such bloomin’ marvellous value for mone – and lush into the bargin.

  3. Cut a piece of the pattern paper from the Mellow pack and add across the bottom half of the card.
  4. Place a strip of ribbon across the join. I used a glue line for stability.
  5. With the white cardstock (I used the triangle from another card), stamp the Cruisabella with the Black Memories ink. Colour in with the COPIC markers.
  6. Matt this triangle onto the Intense Kiwi cardstock, and stick over the card centrally using the Scrapbook Adhesive. Cut off the excess from the edges of the card.
  7. Add a Prima Daisy to the apex of the triangle with with Scrapbook Adhesive. Add three Hero Arts gems to the centre.
  8. Also stick a gem to the centre of the largest wheel, and also three as if they are coming from the exhaust.
  9. Stamp the “wishing you a birthday that is jsut your style” on the inside of the card.
  10. I also added glossy accents to the windscreen portion of the stamp, but after I’d taken the picture.
  11. Stamp a pearl 6×6 envelope with the Build a Bloom stamps for a finishing touch.

This card is for my friend Karen, who has a birthday on Saturday, so I also added a bit of Chinese Orange to the Bella’s hair (as Karen has the most beautiful auburn hair). She also, like me, adores purple.
