It's Early and I Can't Think of a Clever Title

Hello dear friends! It's good to be back to blogland after another lengthy break.  I decided  that as I headed back to crafting and blogging, I'd  take care of several of the Papertrey Peeps challenges I missed and  use some stamps that have been waiting to get inky . So with my head hanging shamefullly because of the delay, let's take a look at  the Peeps April  challenge to use black.  I made a small favor/placecard.

I made a triangle box using Tag, Bags, Boxes, and More Cricut Cartridge  Then I stamped  PTI's Tranquility Trilogy on  three die cuts in gold ink and embossed with sparkling embossing powder.The stamped die cuts are added to the three visible sides of the box. The guest's name is added to double ended banner which is edged with  gold ink. The banner just slides into to the box. 

 I'm not sure  I would make these for many guests because I was pretty slow in creating one--die cut, stamp (sometimes multiples before I had one I was satisfied with), run to the kitchen, emboss while carefully holding with tweezers, return to study, stamp, go to kitchen, emboss.....  I think my limit would be four before frustration level reached its peak. But I can  see the table set with sparkling china and crystal, gleaming silver, crisp white linens, and  the votive candles glittering in our wrought iron and crystal chandelier, so I guess I'll crank out a few more and plan a dinner. Or maybe I'll make just one more, and Ed and I will have a special dinner.


  1. Hi, Cammie! So good to see you back creating again! Your little box is so sweet--love the embossing! I chuckled when you explained the routine to get one done. They are beautiful though--even if a little time intensive! I really like the designs on the Tranquility Trilogy stamps but haven't used them much yet.

  2. I have to go look at this cartridge now for the triangle .... how perfect is this!! LOVE ~~

  3. Good to see you stamping again. Great favor box! Love the embossed image. I was super happy when I found out I had that box too and it works perfectly with the stamp set.

  4. In a perfect world you could make a hundred of these! They are beautiful! Very elegant looking.


I truly appreciate your comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
