Candy Corn box and Witch hat

Hello Stampers!  Happy Halloween!  I have the cutest candy corn box to show you today!  I cased this box from Ronda Wade.  I have a friend that loves candy corn like I do!  Every year I try to make her a little something that has to do with candy corn.

P1120749This was made using the Top Note Die (113463) with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439).

This is a fun paper mache' witch hat that I made using the Howlstooth & Scaringbone designer series paper (126906).

P1120788One of my team members, Sarah, actually made one of these and I absolutely loved it and knew that I had to make one for myself!!!  Isn't it super cute?  Thanks Sarah for the wonderful idea!

    Hearts wall hanging

    Hello Stampers!  My daughter, Casie, is obsessed with Pinterest! When she comes home on the weekend from college, she always has craft projects for us to complete!  Here is one of the items that she made:

    P1120744Fun huh?  Here is a close-up:

    P1120745Casie just punched out several hearts using the Full Heart punch (119883) from several different colors of Stampin' Up! cardstock.  I thought she was going to sandwich the string in between two hearts, but I see she just glued each heart to the string.  I think it turned out really neat!

    This would look great hanging over the head of a bed as a headboard even!

    Paper flower pin

    Hello Stampers!  Yesterday was my monthly Dink It Up! group meeting.  I like to recognize my top in sales, promotions, and recruits for the previous quarter.  I make paper flower pins to "pin" my Queens of the Quarter.  Here is what I came up with for my new Queens:

    P1120758Aren't they fun?  Here is a close-up:

    P1120759-001

    I used our Jumbo Sticky Rounds (127852) from the Holiday Mini catalog.  I actually cut them down so they were a little smaller.  I took about 14" of our new 3 1/2" Scalloped Tulle Ribbon (127841) in Cherry Cobbler, also from the Holiday catalog.  I just started scrunching it and and sticking it to the sticky round, placing it around the outside edge of the circle. 

    For the center flower, I punched 5 of the 2 3/8" Scallop Circles (118874) from the Patio Party designer series paper (126916).  I scrunched each one of them up a couple of times and then stacked them together.  I inserted a brad in the middle, and then layer by layer, scrunched them up again.  After I scrunched up each layer, I sprayed it with a mist of water. 

    Once the flower dries, it will harden and maintain its shape.  I then attached one to the middle of the sticky rounds and attached a pin back to the back with hot glue.

    It's that easy!  Need more directions, let me know and I will help you out or make a tutorial.

    Don't forget about my upcoming Christmas Card Class on Wednesday, October 24th at 7:00 p.m.

    P1120739Please RSVP if you can make it!

    Howlstooth & Scaringbone birthday card

    Hello Stampers!  I have another birthday card to show you that I made using the fun Howlstooth & Scaringbone designer series paper (126906).

    P1120719I punched the designer series paper out using the Scallop Square punch (119884).  I attached them to the Very Vanilla cardstock and then ran the whole thing through the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439) using the Argyle Embossing folder (127750).  I love how this gives the card a quilted look.
