Our first Blog Hop Theme of 2023 is Sweet Treats!
My festive St. Patrick’s Day Treats were inspired by the Jan-June 2023 Mini Catalog. Page 8 of the mini catalog I noticed these cute treats created with the Country Floral Lane Suite. These cute treats can be recreated for any occasion and they are quick to make.
I have been waiting for a St. Patrick’s Day stamp set, the Luck Clover Bundle first bundle I put on my mini catalog shopping list. It was perfect for creating these treat holders for St. Patrick’s Day or to just wish someone good luck!
To create the wrappers I started with a piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock cut to 5-1/2″ x 6-3/4″. On the long side score the cardstock at 2″, 2-1/4″, 4-1/2″, 4-3/4″. Then I stamped the clovers in Granny Apple Green along the top and bottom edges. I used Tear & Tape to adhere the wrapper closed. The Dandy Designs DSP layer of the wrapper is cut to 4-1/2″ x 6-3/4″, for this layer of the wrapper I didn’t make any score lines, I just wrapped it around the cardstock layer and adhered again with Tear & Tape.
To decorate the font of the wrappers I used Basic White Cardstock and die cut the scalloped circle with the All That Dies and stamped clovers on them in Granny Apple Green. I stamped each of the sentiments in Granny Apple Green and snipped them out with my paper snips. I adhered them with Mini Glue Dots.
I stamped the large clovers in Granny Apple Green using the Stamparatus. I prefer to stamp with Stamparatus on larger solid images works better for me than using a clear block, this way I can re-ink and stamp the image if it’s not clear. I punched them out with the Lucky Clover Punch and added them to the wrapper with Mini Glue Dots.
I can’t resist adding a little bling to my projects and for these fun treats I added a few Iridescent Pastel Gems. Before slipping in the chocolate bar I wrapped a piece of the Burlap Ribbon from the Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo pack around the bar. Then tied them at the top with a piece of White Crinkle Seam binding colored with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends.

Thank you for hopping along with the Inspirations In Ink Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Christmas In July. You may be starting here or have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today. I hope you enjoy all our Christmas in July Projects!
My Christmas in July card was created with just a few simple products that I had on hand. It was very easy and quick to create. It’s the perfect card if you send out lots of Holiday cards and you want to create multiples of a simple elegant card.
First I started with a Real Red cardstock cardbase, cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored in half and folded at 4-1/4″. Next, using a piece of the Silver and Gold DSP from Sale-a-bration, I die cut the scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours Dies and adhered it to my cardbase. Then using the next smallest scalloped rectangle die, I die cut a piece of the Gold Foil sheets and adhered it to the Gold DSP Layer.
I die cut the next smallest scalloped rectangle die cut from a piece of Real Red cardstock and using a Mini Glue Dot adhered a the snowflake from the Wonderful Snowflakes to the Red Scalloped rectangle. I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Real Red Ink on a scrap of Basic White cardstock, then die cut it with a label from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered it to the Red Scalloped rectangle, overlapping the snowflake a bit, with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the Red Scalloped rectangle to the Gold Foil layer on my card, and added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Voila, a pretty Christmas card all ready to go!
