Pals Blog Hop to the Holiday Home at Harvest Time

oct badge

Welcome to the October Pals Blog Hop where we are celebrating an early Halloween and Harvest season. This month we are sharing Halloween and fall projects using our wonderful Stampin’ Up! supplies.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Jane Knudsen at, #22  on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Holiday Home, Homemade Holiday Framelits, Festival of Trees, Card in a Box, Baby Wipe TechniqueDon’t you just love this time of year when the leaves are changing into beautiful colors?! It is my absolute favorite time of year, which is why I thought this was the perfect time to learn the baby wipe technique. Why  I hadn’t tried this before, I will never know! It is so much fun and you can’t do it wrong – no matter how you do it. I used this Splitcoaststampers Baby Wipe tutorial to stamp the trees in Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

The card in a box is one of the coolest cards you will ever make! I made this one a little larger so I could accommodate more trees.  It is very fun and easy to make and the larger size allows more room for stamped images. The adorable houses were colored with Blendabilities, of course! Once the houses and trees were in place, it was a snap to decorate the three flaps with the new Autumn Wooden Elements, Regal Designer Buttons, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon and Linen Thread.

The disadvantage of the card in a box is where you can sign it! Here is my solution to that little problem. This is the back of the card where I have made a little pocket so you can insert a tag. This card becomes a gift and home decor!

Tealight, Wondrous Wreath, Wonderful Wreath Framelit, Baby Wipe TechniqueOf course, you know that I love to make coordinating sets so with the baby wipe technique I used the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and the Wonderful Wreath framelits. With the second wreath stamp, I versamarked and heat embossed the leaves in Gold Embossing Powder for some shimmer from the tealight. Here they are together:

  1. Debbie, these are fantastic! Clever beyond words!

  2. This is insanely cool!

  3. Your talent never ceases to amaze me Debbie – beautiful!

  4. Beyond fabulous!!

  5. WOW! This is fantastic! The details you included are OTT! That will be one lucky person to receive this! Off to pin….

  6. Fabulous project!

  7. Geesh Louise!
    This is absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much.
    The deets are the greatest Debbie.

  8. I agree with all the other comments! First words out of my mouth were ” oh wow!” Love these projects Debbie. Totally awesome!

  9. what a fabulous box card–I love it!! And the little “candle holder” is the perfect compliment. Very creative and clever. Do you happen to know where there are good directions for the box card? Thanks very much for sharing your creativity!!

  10. Here are the measurements for my card box:
    Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 11″
    Scored lengthwise: 1/2″, 1 5/8″, 5 3/4″, 6 7/8″
    Scored widthwise: 2 1/2″

    Fold at score lines and cut flaps to the 2 1/2″ score line. the piece in the middle is 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 1/2″ on both sides and adhered in the middle of the box.

  11. I’m speechless!!! Your card in a box scene is fabulous!

  12. I LOVE them both! I’d love to know the details for the “candle” holder. I’m so into playing with those little tea lights right now LOL

  13. Thank you, Kay! I just used the baby wipe technique on the first stamp then heat embossed in gold for the second stamp. I cut out the outer edge of the wreath only, leaving the inner part intact. I then curled the paper up with my bone folder then scrunched around the tea light. The tea light was covered with two of the gold washi tapes and a piece of gold ribbon was glued and tied around the middle. Super fun and easy!

  14. Debbie, these are amazing! Just stunning! Thank you for sharing your talents! And the directions, too!

  15. Fun, fun, fun! Someone will feel very special receiving these!

  16. What a fabulous fall set!! Both of these items are gorgeous! I haven’t wanted to do a card-in-a-box yet, but you may have convinced me to give it a try–the houses and trees are perfect together!

  17. WOW…your card in a box is fabulous….and so is that baby wipe technique that I have never tried myself either…gotta get brave and do it!!! LOVE the tea light holder…I was not a fan of the wreath (toooo saturated out there!) but now in this project, I can see it…great creativity on both of your projects..>TFS!

  18. Love your card in a box. I’ve never thought to try to make it larger. What measurements did you use? The trees are beautiful, too. Guess I’ll have to buy some baby wipes.

  19. I always love your creations Debbie. So beautiful. The best box card like I’ve ever seen and the tea light to compliment it is perfection.

  20. Absolutely stunning Deb! This one is saved for the future in my favorites. Thank you!

  21. Absolutely beautiful work! Just gorgeous!

  22. Debbie, I love the size of your card in a box and how you decorated it. Could you please share the tutorial for the larger size for us? I have never seen one this size and it is AWESOME!! Thanks

  23. I love it ALL, but I think that adorable candle is my favorite and more do-able for me!! Sweet, Debbie!!

  24. Beautiful Card and candle… Thanks for sharing….
