Tic Tacs Make The Perfect Gift

 I'll be honest.... I'm not a huge Coca Cola fan, but I AM a huge fan of the limited edition Coca Cola Tic Tacs!!!!  You guys saw my box from last week's feature of Stampin Up's Celebration Tidings Bundle and the SUPER CUTE and easy box.... it fit's the 3.4 oz. Tic Tac jars PERFECTLY!!!  Welp... here's another variation using Stampin Up's jar punch and jar dome!  Psssst.... the "fizz" in the jar was created using the texture stamp from the Gather Together stamp set, the letters spelling "Coke" were inked on a scrap piece of whisper white that was backed with adhesive sheet and then the letters from the Playful Alphabet die set were cut out....

LOVE this box! The treat topper is ele

Gather Together The Sequal: A Study of Masking

 Okay... you all know by now how much Fall is my jam... and Stampin Up's Gather Together Bundle just speaks to my soul.  The leaves are PERFECTION!  Welp, this Freebie Friday features that perfection with some really fun masking techniques!  The first two are the easiest and use the exact same Drybrush backgrounds stamp.  The card on the left is the first generation stamp of Drybrush in Crushed Curry and the card on the right is the second generation of the same stamp.  Then I die cut the leaves on two sticky notes using both die cut sticky note leaves to mask on the card on the left and then the negative sticky note space to mask the leaf of the card on the right.  Then using the sponge brayer I sponged Merry Merlot (with Night of Navy on the outer edges: optional) on the card on the left and sponged early espresso on the card on the right.  Because the card on the left was first generation of the Drybrush background stamp, the image showed through creating the most pleasing strea
