Good as Gold in the bag

2014_04_05IMG_1077 Hope you are not getting sick of my Good as Gold projects yet but I promise today’s posting will be the last one for awhile.  The Good as Gold card kit was a free item in the recent Stampin Up annual sale-a-bration campaign.  My cute little treat bag was created using the 5×7 card that came in the Good as Gold kit but any cardstock would do.  To make the bag, Score the long side at 5 1/8 and 6 3/4 then turn the card 180 degrees and score the other side at 5 1/8 and 6 3/4.  Score one of the short sides at 1 1/2 inches.  Scoring is done!  Now cut one of the 1/4″ sides completely off.  Then on the other 1/4 side cut out the small piece that is 1/4 ” X 1 1/2 “.  Then create the flaps by cutting to the intersection of the 1 1/2 inch score lines.  Fold the box and add sticky tape to the backside to hide the seam and to one of flaps to seal the bottom. Fill the bag with your favorite treat and pinch the sides and add  a wee little slit and secure with the gold stretchy twine from the kit. Finish embellishing with the other kit items and you will have the cutest treat box ever!

The Stampin Up sale-a-bration is over and I cannot help myself with creating with the Good as Gold card kit. The Good as Gold kit was my favorite SAB free item and I stocked up on it and have forced myself to use it until it is gone.  The card kit is great as is but I have really challenged myself to use it in a different way.  For this card I just cut the Good as Gold card in half and used it as my main layer and matted it on basic black cardstock.  I then added a hand cut banner from the envelope line and added one of the banners from the kit.  I punched and inked  2 Blossom Flowers #125603 and 1 pansy from calypso coral cardstock. The basic black center is  punched from the 7/8″ scallop circle punch #129404 and I added pistachio little leaves sizzlits #114511 to create the stunning flower.  Love this card and just may adapt it for Mother’s Day cards.

Good as Gold not forgotten

2014_04_03 The Stampin Up sale-a-bration is over but I cannot get enough of the Good as Gold card kit (free item that is no longer available).  So I decided to repurpose the cards from the kit and pair it with current offering in both the current Stampin Up catalogs -the annual catalog and the occasions catalog.  I used a black card base and textured it with the Scallops textued folder #132971 and then I cut the good as gold card base to a 3.5 x3.5 square and matted it on Tangerine Tango.  I added a piece of the fabulous black and white chevron ribbon #130010.  To create the sunburst embellishment I used the gold envelope liner from the card kit and cut it with the Sunburst framelits #132967 and then a 1 3/4 “circle from black cardstock and then stamped the Starburst Sayings #133185 semtiment in gold ink 3132142 and layered them on the card base.  The starburst sayings and the starburst framelits are a bundle and save item (wood #134817 & clear #134818) when purchased together.

Good as Gold with a Twist

2014_03_24IMG_0957 Stampin Up offers card kits and I usually don’t order them because I think I may change my mind after seeing what I did for today’s post. For todays card, I combined 2 of the free kits you can get from the Sale-a-bration catalog to make a fantastic card.  I used the Good as Gold card kit #133512 to cut a 1.5 x5 inch strip I then cut a banner from the striped tag in the Twisty Treats kit  #133513 using the Banners Framelits Die and then matted it with a bigger pennant in Tangerine Tango. I also used the hexagon tag from the Twisty Treats kit and the pennants from the Good as Gold kit. I used the gold bakers twine #132975 to attach the gold banner. I used the hexagon punch to stamp the sentiment from the Six Sided Sampler #130956. To complete the card, I punched small circles from the gold envelope liner in the gold as gold kit to accent the whisper white card base.  Love it and the fact that I was able to make 5 cards from 1 card in the good as gold kit and use all the components that I usually don’t use in a kit.

Both the good as gold and the twisty treats and other great items in the Sale-a-bration catalog can be earned for free when you purchase $50 in merchandise through March 31st.
