Hello all, I have finally been able to have myself some play time and finish off a few tutorials and start to release some new kits.
The first tutorial and pre-cut kit I have just in time for Christmas Gifts, is a cute Christmas Santa Dress Lip Balm Holder Gift Box made from the Stampin’ Up! Dress Up Framelits , I have seen a few different versions of lipstick holders and give credit to Pam Strobel and Brenda Quintana for their initial inspiration, however the gift box wouldn’t fit the Lip Balms I use, so I designed my own sized box to suit Avon Lip Balm and added some finishing touches and my design as a Christmas Santa Suit theme – ready for Festive gift giving. The gift box doesn’t need to just be used for a Lip Balm, but could be used for jewellery, sweet treats or even a great packaging idea for a cash gift.
The Dress Pre-cut Lip Balm Gift Box kit, is also available as a General design (ie non-Christmas design) and I will list this kit shortly - perfect for wedding / party favours etc, if in the meantime you would like to purchase a pre-cut General Dress Lip Balm Gift Box kit, just us the contact me tab with the cardstock colors you would like to request.
I am currently updating some existing kits into current Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and Cardstock and working on finishing a couple of additional Christmas and Teacher Gift Kits, hopefully these will find their way into my web and ebay stores shortly.

Waving to my new site members, Facebook likers and to those I meet in person at recent craft markets
Apologies first, Its nearing Christmas and is my busiessed time of the year, I have been a busy, busy, very busy bee and not had much time at all to get onto my website, I am also sorry if I have missed repling to any emails, I work full time, then hometo make kits, completing orders and also deal with the usual home life issues, there isnt much energy left except to fall into bed lol to then try and trail through all the scam/junk emails I receive and some genuine emails may get overlooked, if I have missed replying, please don’t hesitate to send me a friendly reminder.
Along with keeping those that have ordered kits online, inspired with their christmas projects, I have been trying to work on my own handmade goodies and gifts for upcoming craft fairs, I do have some goodies to show.
I have managed to work on a couple of new kits that I have added to my webstore. I finally had a play with creating a Punch Art Full body Santa. I used my Santa Punch Art Head design and then pieced together his body, added an embellishment tag and presented him on a Chocolate Block Slider Pocket.
I have my full body santa punch art available as a basic kit, the punch pieces included make two full body santa’s. I am also offering as a separate kit the pieces to make full body Punch Art Santa and also includes the pre-cut , scored cardstock to make a Chocoalte Block Slider Pocket Gift (using a 100g Cadbury Block), the instructions also include additional measurements for a couple of the more common various sized Chocolate Blocks ie Cadbury 200/220g, Cadbury 100g and 100g Lindt Milk Chocolate.
I have also listed in my webstore the Stocking Gift Card Holder die cut kits, one being a basic kit and the other including the Stocking Accent die cut pieces for added decoration.
My latest creation has been made using the Stampin’ Up Petite Purse Die, while my version and design is different, for the initial inspirationI would like to give credit to Debbie Henderson for her version of a reindeer treat box using the Petite Purse die. I have my own preference to punches and die cuts and the look I like to use in my designs, this is my version of Rudolph the Reindeer Petite Purse Gift Box and , I have added a tag using the Moden Label Punch and in this example have filled with Reindeer Spares (Malteasers & Jaffa) for Santa’s eight reindeer & Rudolph.
These were very popular at a recent craft market and after quite a few people asking, I have my version available as a pre-cut cardstock kit, and will be available in my webstore shortly.
Ok, back to the grindstone, the Christmas rush will slow down shortly and I will be back

Reindeer and Rudolph Spars Gift Box

Kit includes all the pre-cut Acetate Candy Wrapper modified dies cuts, pre-punched cardstock pieces to make specific design, a step-by-step colored pictured tutorial and includes a special pre-printed poem for Angel Kisses, making it a cute themed gift for the festive season.

Here is something I have created previously, but not yet shown to my blog viewers. This cute little guy or girl (by the bow) was inspired by my Ollie the Owl Punch Art Card and has been made into a Spiral Bound Post It Note Holder.
These make a novel and unique one of a kind gift or keep it all for yourself. Ollie’s body shape makes the outer cover, with the spiral binding at the top flips open to reveil the Post in Note Pad inside.
The cover is cut from sturdy Chipboard, with Ollie’s body being made using various pre-cut cardstock, die cuts and punch pieces to create the design.
I have these available now for sale (made to order) and are currently working on a plan to offer as a make it yourself Cardstock kit. Due to the spiral binding needing to be punched after partual assembly - the make it yourself kit will come partly assembled - including:
• The pre-cut Chipboard cover edges will be pre-painted, The front and back cover pieces will be adhered to the Chipboard and the front die cut piece adhered and the Spiral Binding pre-punched and attached.
All you will need to do is create Ollie’s body by layering the various pre-punched pieces included in the kit and adhere the Post It Note Pad to the inside back. You can add further embelishments as you wish, to give your own Ollie the Post It Note Owl it’s own added character.
Due to the Spiral Binding, any made to order or in kit form will need to be posted as a flat rate Parcel and not as a letter, as most of my kits are. If you purchase mutiple items with this order, you will only pay the one parcel postage price – why not make the most of the postage cost.
Message me if you would like to purchase you very own Pre-Made Ollie the Owl Post It Note Holder and I will also keep you updated on the kit availiability.

Just letting you know that KintaKards has finally opened a Facebook Page.
I would love for you to come along and Like my page, for updates and to see what I have been creating. Please share this page with your friends that may like to make or receive Handmade Gifts. I will start to add all my pictures and the page is currently a work in progress, but should allow greater and easier interation that my website blog. My Page link is www.facebook.com/KintaKards
I don’t actually know where the time has gone. I thought I was on the ball for creating some new (and unfinished) Easter kits, but Easter came and flew by me, with the bunny leaving just a trail of chocolate eggs and now Mother’s Day is fast apporaching at the same speed.
I have a few projects on the go, I am still slowly working on turning my Flower Pot card from previous years into a tutorial & kit. I will hopefully soon have this available. Maybe I should start on Christmas items, as I might actually get around to having them ready for the Festive Season lol.
Over the next few months, I have some new plans and directions for KintaKards Creative Gift Packaging. I will be adding in some new product lines, focussing on personalised Gift Packaging.
I will be back shortly to show you some new creations, and I hope to see you over on my Facebook page.

I am back to show some of the Easter goodies I have been playing with, last Easter I first saw a cute picture of a punch art carrot pouch bunny using the Stampin’ Up! Petal Cone die on Sandy Stamper blog - created by Theresa Vargas.
I have created one of my own, using my very own Buster the Bunny Punch Art Design.
These cute little Buster the Bunny Punch Art Carrot Pouch is a perfect Easter Treat holder, all you need to do is add your choice of treat. maybe alter the colors and these would also make cute Baby Shower favours or even gift packaging for the new arrival.
Finished measurements aprox:11cm (high) x 21cm (wide). Will hold a treat / gift in the pouch of aprox 4mx 3cm x 6cm.
I have these available as a pre-cut Cardstock Kit, with a colored pictured step-by-step tutorial, the kit will make two Buster the Bunny Punch Art Carrot Pouches. I have added these to my webstore for purchase.

Happy New Year to you all, Christmas is over and I am on holidays, so have been having a play with some Easter projects (when I haven't been hibernating from the heat), I really dont like the heat.
I really should be finishing off the Easter Projects I started last year, but I have have come up with couple of more designs (and more unfinished projects) - so there is hope folks that I have more to come lol.
Introducing my new "Bobby" the Bunny Punch Art Design. I already have the Pre-Punch Cardstock Kits for these cute little fella's added to my webstore.
I have also been playing with a Gift/Treat Box, using the Stampin Up Bitty Box Die, perfect for Easter Eggs, other chocolatly treats or any other small gift. Perfect for a small Easter gift, or modify the sentiment and use for Baby Shower Party Favours etc.
I have also added the Bobby the Bunny Bitty Box, Acetate and Pre-Punched Cardstock kit avaliable for purchase in my Web store. The colors I have used are Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake with Pretty in Pink, Pear Pizzaz, Perfect Plum and Bashful Blue Cardstock colors.
Ok, back to it again, maybe I will go back an occasion and play with something for Valentines Day.

I am finially listing another kit that I have had completed for a little while now.
I first added my Buster the Bunny Punch Art Design onto an assembled Milk Carton Die cut for Easter, but I have since had a play using the Stampin Up Nursery Nest DSP, to bring it in line for a baby theme, perfect for welcome baby gift packaging, baby shower or party favours etc and still perfect for Easter Gift Packaging.
I have been able to just fit a newborn bonds baby singlet into the milk carton (when made with a bottom opening, my tutorial will show you how I did this) or its perfect gift packaging for a pair of socks or booties for a newborn “baby bunny”.
The colors used that correspond with the Nursery Nest DSP are Bashful Blue, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum and Marina Mist.
Buster the Bunny Milk Carton Gift / Treat Box is now available in my webstore as a Pre cut Cardstock and DSP Kit that will make two Buster the Bunny Milk Carton Gift Boxes, in your choice of Cardstock colors to suit the Nursery Nest DSP.

Hi all, I have finally had a weekend to just have a create and play, especially with some items for some upcoming craft fairs.
One of the things that are always popular at craft fairs are the little token gifts, such as Magic Reindeer Food, Reindeer Poo, Rudolph Spares etc.
I recently saw a Punch art Reindeer made from the Stampin Up Stitched Stocking Punch, on a blog by Karen Haden
After a few tweeks, this is my version, I have made a Naughty (Reindeer Poop) Punch Art Reindeer, below left and also used the small and large Tag, Modern Label and Word Window Punches and added to the top of a filled Skinny Treat Bag or Plastic Test Tube. Below left is some (Magic Reindeer Food), using some Skinny Treat Bags and the Reindeer from the Deer Friend Stamp set. The Skinny Treat Bags and Dear Friend Embelishment Tags are available in my Website Webstore.
On to some other items my friend Jackie made similar Punch Art Plum Puddings and I just had to have a play with them, I love the look of these, you will probably see these on a few of my Christmas goodies this year. I finally got my hands on some hinged nugget tins and have had a play with my favourite Stampin Up DSP, it is just way too sad that it is retired. Here is another Craft Fair Item, Some simple wrapped Hershey Nugget Gift Packs.
And my last show and tell, I also had a request to make a Santa DVD Holder, so here it is (below left), shown with my Santa Chocolate Block Sliders (100g Cadbury Block and Mini 40g Chocolate Blocks).
Ok, back to it, I have a few craft fairs coming up, so must really get moving on a stock of handmade goodies.
Christmas kits have been really popular, please check out my Webstore to purchase any kits or tutorials.
Happy Creating Everyone.

Hello all, sorry I am still here, but I have had a very hetic last few weeks.
I was busily preparing for a huge days festival held locally – SpringFest, it’s a range of market stalls around the 6km Lake Wendouree forshore, I decided last year that I was going to attempt it this year and the weather was going to be fantastic.
Well it all didn’t quite go to plan, These last few weeks, I was kept very busy with online orders and I had been chasing my tail trying to get a stock of kits and goodies made for Springfest (which were walking out the door as fast as I could make them, thank you to all my customers though).
Add to that the week before Springfest, all around the same time, we had the funeral for a long time family friend, my budgie died and I came down with a viral infection and am still fighting it off. Somehow I still made it to Springfest, but the weather gods did not listen to me when I said the weather was going to be great, it was a horrible day weather wise. I managed to have a reasonable display and stock on show and had a great day sales wise and the people I meet were lovely. But in doing so, it took every ounce of energy I had, I even forgot to take a pic of my display for you.
In the lead up, I had full intentions of giving you all in cyber land an update on some of the items I had made, but sorry, please bear with me, I am still trying to catch up from my down time with this horrible infection, and it is taking some time for me to get back on my feet.
The Christmas markets are also starting to come into full swing, my next local market is a twilight market at the New Caledonian Primary School on Friday 11 November. Good grief, I need to pull my finger out.
Ok, time to show you a couple things I have been playing with. I have added this an extra to my Santa and Rudolph Mini Chocolate Block Slider Card tutorial, as these were designed to hold a Aldi brand of mini Chocolate Blocks and this may not be easily available to those without an Aldi supermarket. At the request of Tracy (hi). Tracy asked if I could make these to suit the 100gram Cadbury Chocolate Blocks and this is what I have come up with, It is simply just a Chocolate pull, does not have the card opening design the mini has, but I have added and embellished a piece of cardstock to the back, where you would add your Christmas Greeting.
Ok I will be back to show you some more things, I have been working on, when I find some extra hours in the day hehe. PS. The Santa Sleigh and Stocking Nugget Holder Kits are ready, I just need to list them.

While it has been a little while between blog posts, I have been busy behind the scenes - mostly trying to finish off the tutorials and kits I have had on the go, while keeping up with orders, madly trying to prepare for upcoming Craft Markets and Fairs (which are coming way too soon) and I should add working full time into the mix as well.
Today I have had a play with the Sizzix Pillow Box Die, together with some of my Punch Art Designs.
Firstly, I have been playing with my Oswald the Owl Punch Art design - made in a different Cardstock Color, these ones were made using the new 2011 Stampin Up Incolor - Wisteria Wonder.
Oswald the Owl Punch Art Kit and or a PDF Tutorial are available for Purchase in my Webstore, for the pre-cut Kit you can choose any of the current Stampin Up Cardstock colors that you would like - just let me know during the check out process. I will hopefully have more of these to show in various colors - as I prepare stock for the craft fairs.
The second Pillow Box Project - I have made using my Santa and Rudolph Punch Art Designs, using a Pillow Box Bag - pillow box die cut with the handle being a Top Note Die Cut and also embellished with the new Stampin Up Ribbon Punch. These make great gift packaging for the Festive Season, and with the handle, you can even hang them on the Christmas Tree.
I already have the tutorials completed for all the components - I will put them all together and have a Pre-cut Kit available for purchase shortly.
Ok, back to it, I am off to try out my Santa Sleigh Nugget Gift Box and put the finishing touches to the tutorial, its taken forever, but it is now not too far away. And I will be back showing some more of my craft fair goodies.
Happy Creating, Regards Angela

Just another quick post to let you know that I have finished the tutorial and added the Candy Wrapper Santa and Rudolph Pre-cut Kit and PDF Tutorial into my webstore.
Here is a free standing Santa Sleigh Nugget Treat Box, I have been playing with off and on for a while now and was all set to get the tutorial and kit worked out this weekend.
However I have also been itching to play with the new Stampin Up Stocking Die and the Stocking Accents die and thought I could incorporate the same concept (Nugget Treat Box) into the Stocking Die Cut, so I just had to stop everything and create the free standing Stocking Nugget Gift Box, the Stocking Accent Die cut pieces pull up to reveal a card for writing a Christmas Greeting.
The Stocking Die also makes a quick and easy gift card holder, here is one I have been playing with also, in pulled out view. These are going to be very handy for the Festive Season - I remember I made similar Stockings last year, however had to had cut these, with the die cuts - these are going to be great to work with.
I am just finalising the tutorial for the Stocking Nugget Gift Box and Card and the Stocking Gift Card Holder and will have this and a pre-cut kit available shortly.
Ok, have to go and be social, happy crafting everyone.

Wow what a busy weekend and past few weeks I have had, and all I want to do is just play (create). Hopefully I can start to get more of the ideas and unfinished projects I have on the go completed. But every now and then and idea pops into my head and I cant complete anything else until I get it out and these Candy Wrapper boxes were one of those.
If you had seen one of my previous posts on my Santa and Rudolph Skinny Treat bag Punch Art designs, I wanted to do something similar to what I did with the Skinny Treat Bag Bunnies at Easter and made up a kit with the Skinny Treat bag bunnies and Candy Wrapper Bunnies, so an idea formed to come up with a Candy Wrapper Santa and Rudolph.
And here is my finished design. How cute would these look on your Christmas Table - as place settings or as always small treat or gift packaging.
These have been made with Stampin Up Cardstock, punches and dies. My next task is to put the step-by-step tutorial together and I will have these available shortly in kit form or a PDF tutorial, that can be emailed world wide.
Here is a sequence of the versions I made until I was happy with the design, the ones up the back were my first basic piece together and I am not going to show you the mess on my floor with all the punch pieces lol.
Ok - here is another Candy Wrapper Christmas kit I am working on, using the new Stampin Up DSP - Letters to Santa, Candy Wrapper Die and Owl Punch.

Yea, I have finally completley finished the tutorial and kit for my Santa and Rudolf Chocolate Slider Block Cards.
I created these for Christmas last year and they were very popular pre-made for gifts. I have spent little spurts of putting together a step-by-step tutorial and kit for purchase and have just now finally spend the last couple of days finishing these off.
I Just need to finalise pricing, the PDF Tutorial and the Pre-cut/scored and punched Kit (with tutorial), will be available in my Web Store, very soon.
Here is the front closed view of both Rudolf and Santa Chocolate Block Slider.
And here is a view with Rudolf Open and the Chocolate Block slid out.
Ok, back to the next, unfinished and Christmas Project. More to come.

I have finally finished the tutorial and kit another of my unfinished projects, here is my Punch Art Owl Movie Ticket / Money Slider Card. I made a bunch of these as thank you gifts last year and they were very popular for Christmas (just add a santa had to the owl and modify the sentiment to suit).
It is designed to fit cinema movie money or cash and opens like a card, where you can write your greeting, with the tickets pulling out from a special pocket. Make a great way to package up a small simple gift.
Here is a view of the inside, sorry I havent embelished the inside of this example. Example showing movie money or cash slider.
I have this now availalbe as a pre-cut kit with step-by-step pictured tutorial (postage available within Australia only) or a PDF emailed tutorial (available to be emailed worldwide). Measurements include both Metric and Imperial measurements.
To purchase please see my webstore or contact me for special orders.
