Hot Chocolate Treat Card

Susan Campfield does a weekly Facebook live for her team and a few weeks ago she showed a treat holder that she modified one she saw from B.J. Peters.  I just knew I had to make it!  Partly because I still had some test tube treat holders left over from a past Paper Pumpkin kit and partly because it was just so cute.  Susan made hers with a penguin on the front using the Smitten Mitten bundle, I don’t have that bundle so I pulled out the Cookie-Cutter Christmas set.  I always have a tough time getting a clean image with such a solid stamp, I can’t wait until I get my Stamparatus!

The marshmallows are Jet-Puffed Marshmallow bits.  I colored in the rhinestones with a black sharpie (that somehow looks blue) and the dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend.  Since the little gingerbread man didn’t stamp so cleanly, I colored over him with a little Wink of Stella.

The Real Red is cut to 5″ x 9 3/8″ and scored along the long edge at 3 3/4″, 4 3/8″ and 5″.  Fold on the middle score line and cut two slits to the next score line so there is something to hold the test tube.  I used tear and tape between the 4 3/8″ and 5″ score lines because you want something strong.

Paper Pumpkin Extra for October

I love getting my Paper Pumpkin kits in the mail each month.  It’s fun to have a box of crafty goodness to play with that I didn’t design.  This month it was a box of 10 shaker cards with leftover pieces!  I can’t wait to see what November’s kit brings!  If you want to join in the fun, just visit PaperPumpkin.com.

Here’s a card I created using some of the leftover pieces from the October kit.  The snow at the bottom is just an edge I cut.  I would have made a hat for the snowman but the card ran out of room.  🙂

I just got my Paper Pumpkin kit and it’s oh so cute!  I was feeling stumped for creating something to post and this revived my mojo!  I also used ribbon!  (That doesn’t happen often enough.)

August Paper Pumpkin Alternate Idea

The stamp set that came with the latest Paper Pumpkin is just so darling.  Normally I just make the designed projects from the kit but this time I decided to try a some variations.  Here is one I found on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook group that I decided to CASE.

Here’s my card:

I colored the flowers with the Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers and I love how they work on the Thick Whisper White paper.  So far I haven’t had any piling when I go over the same area trying to get rid of markers lines.  I may have to pull out the markers more now that I know this.

Paper Pumpkin Playtime

Okay, apparently summers are even worse for me to consistently post to the blog.  *sigh*  I haven’t had much time or inspiration the past month to create much but yesterday while my husband and I were watching le Tour de France, I pulled out my June Paper Pumpkin kit.

Now normally I like to put the kits together exactly how they are designed but this time I decided to try something new.  First I went to the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook group to jump start my ideas and this is what I came up with.
