Cardz TV Anything Goes DT Challenge #5



Happy St. Patrick's Day and Happy Friday my friends!  Are you wearing green today?  I hope so!  In our family tree we have some Irish.  It's hard to believe March is a little over half over.  But I am so ready for Spring.  Around the Castle it has been beautiful weather.  Mid to upper 60's and tomorrow it's supposed to be 70.

For today's challenge I've put together this box.  A friend of mine asked me to make some of these for her co-workers.  Not sure what to call them.  She was pleased and couldn't wait to hand them out today.  For the sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "St. Patrick's Day."  I've sure used this one a lot this month.  The DSP and card stock are from Stampin' Up!©  For the Shamrocks, I used a Martha Stewart punch I've had for years.

So what to do you think?  Are you ready to take the challenge?  I hope so!  I would love to see what you create.  Simply create anything!  A treat holder, box, card, scrapbook page, the sky's the limit!  Once you've created it, head on over to Mary's Blog and enter your project.  You have until Noon EST March 30th.  Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamps to the winner!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day and a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

Cardz TV "Anything Goes" DT Challenge #4



Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday and time for another Cardz TV Anything Goes DT Challenge.  These weeks are just flying by!  St. Patrick's Day will be here before we know it!

For those of you who asked for directions for my last challenge found HERE, I will post a picture tutorial on Saturday if you'd like to come back and give it a go.

For this week's challenge I made this little mini coffee cup holder. For the sentiments, I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "St. Patrick's Day."  Last month when they started putting out the Easter candy, I saw these little gold coins.  I knew this set would be perfect for this. For the shamrocks I used a Martha Stewart punch and some gold foil paper.  I used a 4 oz. mini coffee cup with lid.  I purchased them from Web Restaurant Click here for the Mini Cups and here for the Mini Lids.  If you would like to make one of these holders for yourself, you will need: ⇩

A 2 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock.
Place the 11 inch side at the top of your scoring board and score at:
4 1/2, 7, 7 3/4, 10 1/4.
On the end that has the 1/2 inch flap on the end, punch a 2 inch circle in the center between the two 1/2 inch sections.  Add adhesive to the 1/2 inch flap.  I recommend placing the cup in before pressing the flap to the back.

Are you ready to take the challenge?  Just create anything!  You have until noon EST March 16, 2017 to add your project to Mary's Blog.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would really love to hear from you!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  And don't forget to come back Saturday if you'd like to see how to make my previous project.  

Hugs,
