Hey there everyone, Stacy here with you today on the Petaloo blog.  Thanks for stoppng by for the Petaloo, Xyron, and Core'dinations blog hop all week!!  Make sure you check back all week for the amazing projects by the team, and for a chance to win some goodies.
For my project today I altered a fun tag to tie onto the treat bag of candy for the grandkids!! I used a burlap bag for this.  Next I used the Core'dinations Shattered cardstock to create the base of the tag.  Then the fun part of decorating it was next!!

So for the pattern paper on the tag I used Jillibean Owloween collection and the Xyron Mega Runner to adhere it to the Core'dinations cardstock.  I embellished around the image with the Petaloo Botanica Minis (pistachio).  I adhered the flowers to the tag using Xyron 3/16 adhesive dots.

The Trick Or Treat saying was created using the Xyron Design Runner with the Festive Greetings disc.  I printed that onto a piece of Naturals Core'dinations cardstock and sanded the edges with the Sand It tool.  I popped that up with a Xyron foam square from the Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit.
Supplies Used:
Petaloo - Botanica Minis (pistachio)
Xyron - Design Runner, Festive Disc, Mega Runner, 3/16 Adhesive dots, foam squares

Thinking Of You

Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by my blog today.  This week 3 amazing companies have teamed up for a super cool blog hop.  Xyron, Petaloo and Core'dinations!!!!  Make sure you stop by all of the blogs and see the beautiful creations and see what prizes are up for grabs all week long!!


I created a tag for this project.  I used the Core'dinations Neutrals to cut the tag shape, then ran it through my Sizzix Vagabond with the Tim Holtz wood grain embossing folder.  Next I used the Core'dinations Sand It tool then inked with Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Next was the fun part...decorating the tag.


I first stained some seam binding and tied that around the tag, added a little burlap ribbon to the top and the side of the tag.  Next I used my Xyron 3/16 adhesive dots to place the leaves from the Petaloo Botanica Blooms pack onto the tag.  Using the liquid glue from the Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit I the placed my Botanica Blooms (teal) flowers down.  I cut a smaller piece of Core'dinations Neutrals, sanded the edges and placed the sentiment on it.  I popped that up using the foam squares from Xyron.  

Supplies Used:
Xyron - 3/16 adhesive dots, TC Adhesive Kit (liquid glue & foam squares)
Petaloo - Botanica Blooms (teal)
Ranger - Wanlut Stain Distress Ink
Sizzix - Tim Holtz wood grain embossing folder

Die-namite Fun

Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  I'm sharing a fun little card that I created for one of my projects for Die-namites blog this month.  I love this cute paper collection from Graphic 45 and the Pear Tree die really makes the tree pop on the card.


The paper that I used with the Pear Tree die was the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection from Core'dinations.  I used my Xyron 3/16 dots to hold part of the tree down at the bottom, but I didn't adhere it at the top to give it the effect that the leaves were blowing!

Here is the amazing die that I used on this one.  You will see that I didn't keep the bird from the die and I actually cut the tree apart before I placed it on the card.


Supplies Used:
Die-namites - Pear Tree Die
Xyron - Mega Runner , 3/16 dots
Core'dinations - Kraft-Core Shattered collection
Graphic 45 - Mother Goose

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful day!

Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  There are a few people I know with birthdays this month, so i'm getting a jump on some cards.  Xyron has teamed up with Spellbinders for a little product swap and we were lucky to get to create with some fun dies.

For this card I used one of my favorite older lines from Teresa Collins Memorabilia.  The colors in this line are amazing and love it with a little walnut stain distress ink on the edges.


The base of the card is kraft cardstock along with some of the pattern paper from the Memorabilia collection. For my Spellbinders die I used the Majestic Circle....love the detail on this die.  I stamped the Happy Birthday on the circle, then embellished around the circle.

Supplies Used:
Xyron - Mega Runner, foam squares from Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit

The Boo Crew

Hey there everyone thanks for stopping by today.  I'm going to share with you today a fun Halloween card that is perfect for that little spook in your life!!  I'm loving the cute pattern paper from the Spirited collection from Authentique and you know that the Petaloo goodies go perfect with it....I mean really is there anything that Petaloo flowers don't go with????
So for my card I made the base of the card, then simply cut the pattern paper 1/4" smaller then the base.  I centered that and adhered it with my Xyron Adhesive Runner.  I then cut a couple of different size stripes and adhered those as well.  The cute little die cut sayings up in the right corner and also next to the flower are from the same collection from Authentique.

I added some green ribbon that I had in my stash along the top and tied it into a bow.  I am lovnig the black Burlap Blossoms on this card, and well I can't get enough of the Spring Berry Clusters either!!!  I used the liquid glue for those that Xyron has out in their Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit.  Once I placed those on the card, I then popped up the little Boo Crew saying.  Now I have a cute little Halloween card ready to go!  Here is a close up of the bottom of the card.

Magical Card

Hello everyone thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I'm going to share my first project  with you as part of the Die-namites design team.  I had so much fun with this card.  The card was inspired by the amazing sketch challenge up for this month.  You can find out more info HERE on how to enter.


Since Halloween and Fall are right around the corner this was the perfect challenge for my card. For this card I used the paper collection from Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale which has alot of orange in it (perfect for the challenge)!!!  I also loved the image with the sentiment on it for the center part of my card.


I used a dark green Bazzill cardstock to cut out the Grassy Cattails and placed those up in the left corner.  I layered  the Flowering Branch cut out using brown cardstock over the top, then simply added a Petaloo flower in each corner.

Here is a close up of the amazing detail of the two dies that I used.


Below you can see the dies that I used.....hop on over and grab these, they are AMAZING!!!





Supplies Used:
Xyron - Mega Runner & glue dots
