SU Perfect Blend with Tag It

Amy at the Friday MashUp # 125 has a fun challenge this week- A-B-C, 1-2-3. The guidelines ask participants to use elements in the project beginning with A-B-C and use 1 embellishment, 2 stamp sets, and 3 colors. I was making favors for my upcoming  SU Perfect Blend class this Wednesday and they  fit in with the challenge perfectly.

Coffee Favors

It has been hard not to post this once I was done with the favors on Saturday morning… but I had to wait to post this until the last minute so I could surprise at least of few of my stamper gals tonight!

SU Perfect Blend Sour Cream Container

A- ANTIQUE Brad

B- Espresso BEANS

C-CHOCOLATE COVERED  treat in a Sour Cream CONTAINER

Espresso Beans

1- EMBELLISHMENT-Naturals Trim Ribbon

2- STAMP SET- SU Perfect Blend, SU Oh, Goodie

3- SU COLORS: Soft Suede, River Rock, Early Espresso

Sour Cream containers are soooooo easy to make to hold little gifts or treats. Start with  a 4 1/4 inch  by 5 1/2 inch piece of Designer Paper- it seems to be easier to work with than heavier card stock.

Put sticky strip on two of the longer sides and one of the shorter sides.

Roll the shorter side with the sticky strip removed over the other shorter side to create a tube.

Remove one of the sticky strips from one of the longer sides and pinch together.Try to make the seam offset from the middle.

SU Tag It with SU Tag-a-Bag Bundle

These cute little Tag-a-Bags from SU just make me smile. I especially liked using the SU Tag It stamp set that is the current catalog’s Ronald McDonald House stamp set that gives $3 to the charity when purchased. I decided to make one into a Get Well Soon gift for Tara’s Lovin’ Tags challenge at The Friday MashUp # 122.  However,  I feel like I might be needing one of these Get Well Soon Tag-a-Bag gifts after I finish moving my three kids into their new apartments in three different states…I am feeling tired and worn-out right now. How many of you are in the same boat these days?

Get Well Soon Tag a Bag

Here is what I put into the Get Well Soon Tag-a-Bag:
pocket tissues, cough drops, and a Lipton Cup-a Soup packet.

SU Mixed Bunch

Happy 1st Anniversary to Dynamic Duos Challenge Blogspot #52!
DD#52

I celebrated with them by using Challenge #42 Garden Green and Daffodil Delight to create a little gift for someone. This water bottle with lemonade is the perfect way to say I am thinking of you or thankful for you…maybe for a teacher, a bus driver, your postal worker- think of all the people you interact with on a daily or monthly basis. I picked Dasani water because it has a Garden Green colored lid;)

And, CASology #44 this week is BLOOM, and this project is so CAS I am going to share it over there too!!

Week 44 - Bloom

SU Word Play Mother’s Day Candle Gift

You have already seen the card I made for my wonderfully awesome mom last month but…here’s a little gift to go with the card. We made these at Stamp Class as a gift for a mother or a friend…or for yourself as some gals said they were keeping it!! I used the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and used coordinating colors to embellish a sweet blue candle. One friend said she was going to use this idea for shower favors…

Some tags for wrapping…

Some friends and I got together to make some quick gift tags last week…the bottle tags were changed very little from Mary Fish’s tags… I added some branches to the hat and  a felt ribbon scarf to the Snowman that came from Connie Plaumann, and the Do not open ’til Christmas tags were a CASE from Linda Heller. Thanks ladies for the great ideas!!
