For my first project I used Art Philosophy and Bump in the Night.

I cut the door hanger at 9" from Art Philosophy on p. 25 <star2>font layer, the heart is also from AP on p.26 <Heart1> cut at 1" and I used scissors to make the bite marks on the heart. This door hanger fits a candy box perfectly. I also cut the striped paper at 2 3/8" x 2 3/4" to fit on the front.

Here's a close up of the cute monster from Bump in the Night, <Gomer> cut at 2". I inked him and popped dotted him on to the box. The heart border behind him is from a border punch. I finished off the door hanger with a sentiment and some red rhinestones and of course some white gel pen stitching.

Paper- Core'dinations and Scrap paper
Stamps- Jaded Blossom(Love Bites)
Other- Memento Tuxedo Black and Bahama Blue Ink, Red Distress Ink, White Gel Pen, Rhinestones, Fancy Scissors, EK Success heart border punch

For my second project I used Sweet Treats and Sweet Shop.

Here's everything I cut out. The polka dot paper is the card base cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". I inked the card base with some brown ink.

Here is the finished card! I love how it turned out. 
I cut the gumball jar from Sweet Shop at 2"<gumballs>  the layers were cut in red, blue, orange and pearl white. 
I cut the rounded squares from Sweet Treats at 2.25" p.67 <2s> Cards layer. 
The white strip was cut at 1" x 5 1/2" and inked with orange. 
I added some Trendy Twine on top of that. After I layered all the gumballs, I used markers to highlight them to look more real. Then I used Dimensional Magic to make it look like a glass jar. The circles in the corners were made with my shape tool. I finished off with some white gel pen stitching and a stamp.

For the inside of the card I used 2 pieces of red card stock cut at 4" x 5 1/4" The sentiments and the gumballs were both from Jaded Blossom Stamps. I colored in the gumballs with some glitter gel pens and did white stitching with a white gel pen.
