Fang-tastic Cauldron of Cards Set

Yes!  It is my turn again this week to feature a project for Preview Week #2!  Preview Weeks are fast coming to a close, along with the Early Bird Special Saving of $5 off the subscription price!  Saturday is the last day to take advantage of the savings!  Starting, Sunday, September 26, only subscribers will have access to the 8 weeks of fabulous projects Mary Brown and I, along with Guest Designers, Cristena Bagne, Rochelle Gould and Jenn Picard will be doing on Create with Connie and Mary!  You WON'T want to miss it!

AND…leave a comment on the Create with Connie and Mary website TODAY for a chance for another FREE subscription to Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition!  If you win and have already signed up, we will refund your fee!


When I was thinking of a second project to make for this week, I know that card sets are always popular and make great gifts.  Then I needed a container or box for them.  That's when I thought of a cauldron!  But, the cards needed to be small…so how about a cute set of 3×3 cards featuring Stampin' Up!'s Fang-tastic stamp set?  Those little cuties are PERFECT for a small 3×3 size!  You could tuck them inside a lunch bag, hang them on a gift bag…lots of cute ideas for these miniature cards!  I have a FREE STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL for you over on Create with Connie and Mary on making this cauldron box and sweet cards!



The "cauldron" box is actually two large circles cut across the top again with a portion of another circle to make the scoop top.  Between the two cauldron pieces is the Fancy Favor Bigz XL die box…it holds the 4 mini 3×3 cards and envelopes perfectly!  I placed small flat glass marbles for the "feet" of the cauldron.  The handles are made with the Large Oval Punch and Wide Oval punch around it.  The "bubbles" are made from Pear Pizzazz cardstock that I covered with Versamark, then Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder for a glittery look.  The letters, boo, were also made the same way with Tangerine Tango cardstock.  I watercolored the little kids with my Aqua Painter and Stampin' Write Markers, then punched them with the new 2 1/2 Circle Punch.



Don't forget about the  EARLY BIRD SPECIAL for the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition!  It's an 8 week subscription featuring stamps and products from the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini.  Right now you save $5 of the regular $39.95 price, but that ENDS TOMORROW (Saturday, September 25th)!  There is a new project posted every day and an average of two fabulous tutorials a week.  NEW this year is a Project Sheet for every post!  Our site stays up long after the session is done, so you will always have access to the site and the tutorials.  AND, demos did you realize that purchasing our subscription is a tax deduction for your Stampin' Up! business?  Join us!
