Sweet Centers Lollipop

Love, love , love this stamp set. I made these for my daughters Halloween party at school. They were super simple to put together. I used Crushed Curry cardstock and Rich Razzleberry ink. I punched out the center with the large oval punch and glued it inside the card so that when the lollipop was gone there was a surprise inside. A simple staple is all I used to hold it together.

I also made yummy ghosts. They are made out of nutter butter cookies and vanilla frosting. I put mini chocolate chips in the frosting for the eyes. They were both a hit with her classmates.

Fancy Favor Thanksgiving box

Isn't this the cutest box ever? Well it will be until I create another one next month...
This is a big xl die exclusive to Stampin' Up! called Fancy Favor. we first cut it out with the big shot and then wheeled the Bright Blessings along the bottom edge with Bravo Burgundy. The ribbon at the top is also Bravo Burgundy with a little piece of Certainly Celery tied around it.
The little acorn is a stamp from Falling Leaves. We punched it out with the small tag punch and then layered it with the large tag punch with Certainly Celery cardstockand tied it to the other ribbons with the silver cord.
The best part is the tootsie rolls that we filled it up with!!

A Flurry of Leaves

027 I think Fall is my favorite time of year!! I love the changing of the leaves and the warm colors that they inspire. I made this with my club in October. We used the shimmer paint for the leaves punched out at the bottom of the page, they are from the stamp set called Falling Leaves. The die cut leaves we used the Big Shot on with the Designer Series paper, Razzleberry Lemonade. The cardstock colors are the in colors: Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, and Dusty Durango. The ribbon slide is from the Hodgepodge Hardware. And lastly, the stamp set that I used the “Give Thanks” is from a hostess set called Holiday Best.

Shimmery Medallion

026 The card we made this month at my club was this shimmery medallion. The shimmer paint is so easy to use and looks really cool on the Always Artichoke cardstock.

After we stamped the Medallion we used Basic Brown to stamp the center of the medallion and punched it out with the large circle punch and then layered it with dimensionals. The rhinestone brad in the center finished it off.
