SIP118 Anything But a Card

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  It's time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge, and this is a fun one--anything but a card!

No automatic alt text available.

This challenge gave me a chance to play with the new Mini Pizza Boxes that are in SU's Holiday Catalog!  They are sturdy and fold together in a snap and are oh-so-fun to decorate!  For this Halloween one, I chose to make a sleeve that just slides on and off!  I used some Spooky Night DSP and created a rosette --haven't made one of them for a long time--and stamped some images from Spooky Cat and Pick A Pumpkin to embellish it:

(I will tell you that the rosette goes together fairly easily if you use a hot glue gun and have a circle of cardstock already punched out to which it can be adhered.  It can be tricky to get it to lay flat, but the hot glue sets quickly and stays put very well!)  The matching Patterned Pumpkin dies are fun, too!  I used some Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper from last year to create the little swirls that accent my treat box so well:

And since the Spooky Cat set is photopolymer, it's easy to line up the sentiments, which I diecut with the Stitched Shapes oval die:

And here it is, slid apart from the pizza box--hey, it's kinda cute just standing up on its own!  

The SIP design team has some really cute items for you to peruse this week!  Be sure to go check them out, and we want to see your creations as well!  'Tis the season for all kinds of tricks and treats, so get busy!!

We have still had a few warm days, so Cassidy decided she was going to plant some sunflowers.  I didn't have the heart to tell her they probably wouldn't grow, and she was so intent on her chore, I just let her go:

I'll keep you posted as to their progress!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Your pizza box is so cute, LeAnne! Love how you decorated yours with the rosette and jack o lantern! Super fun idea for a Halloween treat! The weather we are having now is a bit much...I sure hope it's short lived. Maybe Miss Cassidy's sunflowers will pop up next year! One can hope, right? TFS and have a great day! :)

How did you do that sliding thing?? Looks great! Better the sunflowers don't grow now, then you will probably have some growing on the lawn next year🙂🤗

I love your pizza box! How fun! That sunflower being planted with such care, might just show it's face in the spring! ~chris
