You’ve Been Naughty but Happy Birthday Anyway

I’m just teasing with my post title.  I have a couple things to share today but they are in no way related other than the fact that they both use My Favorite Things’ Die-namics Game Night Spinner and Stamp Set duo and new You Spin Me Additions.  I LOVE this die with the coordinating sets!  So much fun!

You’ve Been Naughty

This first project includes a card and matching “treat” box.  (I really like the little jingle bell brads!  I found them in a Hobby Lobby on my way home from Disney!)

Chalk inks are the best choice for stamping solid images with acrylic stamps.  But I don’t have very many so stamping the inside pieces of the wheel was a bit of a challenge for me.  After some trial and error, I was able to get a decent impression using my Mementos.   But now I’m on a mission to find more chalks.  I found a great new website the other day that lists cost comparison of ink types among different suppliers. is a great resource.  On their left sidebar, you can choose the different brands to see a list of various suppliers and prices.    I didn’t purchase any yet, but I found distress inks for a great price at a camera store of all places.  Who would have thought?  So check it out!

Since the spinner landed on “naughty,” the recipient of this card is getting coal (as stated on the inside of  my card).

And here’s the perfect little box to hold the coal.  I used Jen’s Full Circle Treat Box template found here.    The actual template cuts a smaller box than I wanted so using my Cricut and Make the Cut software (many thanks to a very generous friend 🙂 and found here on Jody’s left side bar), I simply selected the entire template (all pieces at once) and dragged a little arrow in one of the corners until the top circle was the size of the spinner.  I wasn’t sure it would work, but it did!  YAY!  I love when things are easy.  So I cut my larger treat box, assembled another spinner and WA-LA.  Done.  🙂

I decided to make another spinner card for my son’s birthday.

Look Who’s Turning 11

I like how this turned out but I didn’t realize until now that I placed two party hats side by side.  GASP! (lol)  I should not have done that.  But my son didn’t notice (and wouldn’t care) so it’s fine.

On the inside I stamped a couple more sentiments while leaving plenty of room for all of us to sign.

I’ll be back tomorrow with MFT’s Greatest Hits.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
