Club Scrap Blog Hop: Moroccan Spice

Welcome to another wonderful Blog Hop from
Club Scrap
I hope you arrived here from
Donna's Blog
and admired her wonderful project.
If you happen to loose your way, you can always
go back to the Club Scrap Blog,
where you find all participants.

I absolutely love the colores of this month's kit.
Beautiful for coffee cards,but I restrain myself
and have some other projects in mind too!
I am making little bags with the 
Stampin'Up! mini treat bag die.
Here is the first one. With this beautiful paper
you don't need to do anything with the background.
I only added the banner with hanks cut out with a die.
The fibre came with the kit and I closed the bag with
a clothes pin decorated with a leaf (from the Aspen kit).

The second bag has a window cut out,
so you can see the sentiment of the card inside.
Around the window I used the Aspen
leaves again. I colored them with pencil.

Here the inside card. I used the stencil with this one
and the Greetings to Go UM stamps.
The third bag is for Hanukkah,for this
is a Holiday I celebrate. We always give money
to our kids and I try to make different
eveloppes each year. This year it will be the 
treat bag enveloppe..

Again, I made a window in the treat bag.
Of course I did this before folding and taping the bag together.

I cut a card that fit's inside the treat bag.
The decorated side will be the front side.
And the gift card will be fastned to the backside

On the back side I will add a gift card.
So I made to slits to make the card fit.
Because you see this on the front I used 
alittle panel to cover this.

Here you see the finished front side of the card.
For the white part I used an embossing folder that matches
the Moroccan theme. The Hanukkah stamps are
also by Club Scrap but very vintage!
I also want to share this window card with you.
I made some last year,but I thought I do it again for
the stencil gave me a perfect window.
You find instructions for a card like this HERE
with video instructions.

Here is the part of the stencil, that I used forthe window of
this card. Behind the window is a piece of vellum (not from
the kit).

I cut the window 3 times.

Here the vellum part. First the star stamped and
embossed and next decorated with another part of the stencil.

Here you see the stencil, that you can have as an extra
added to your kit. You see more of it HERE.

This easel card can be send flat (hope the receiver has
one of these electric tealights) or you have to add one
with your gift!

This is how the card lookks from behind.

See the light burning through the window.

Inside the card the menorah (candle holder) is
fastened with foam tape, so it holds the standing up
part of the card.

If you are in for more ideas,please hop over to
I am sure she has something special for you in store.

Thank you very much for looking and
for your wonderful comments.

Have a creative day!
