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.
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. 🙂
This is what I created with the kit…
and this is what I had leftover!
Look at all those dimensional circles left, I need to make a few more shaker cards!
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.
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.
