I had a class yesterday using the Ronald McDonald set, Say it With Scallops. Included with the class fee, each person received the stamp set and we made these 4 cards. We used all four stamps and several of the new DSP, In Colors and the yummy ribbon that matches. Then my 2 gal’s had to have the scallop square punch and the edge scallop punch too! The square punch just makes the stamp set “shine” if you know what I mean.
I saw these cute spiders on Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts and then my friend showed me how to make these bats. Found these cute tins at Target in the $1 area and and idea took shape. Aren’t these so cute? Dawn has a video on how to make the spiders. The bats are made with the square scallop punch folded in half to make a triangle and then you cut at an angle about 1/4″ in on each side and then fold back the part you just cut to make the ears. Sounds way more complicated than it is. I attached both the spider and the bat to the 1 3/4″ Lovely Lilac circle punch and added the dangle, which is from the stamp set, Batty for you. This was attached to a Pixy Stick with a dimensionals. I put Kit Kat & Milky Way bars in the tin and stuck the spider and bat into the tin. The candy bars are holding up the Pixy Sticks. I just noticed that one of my spiders doesn’t look very good. I smodged the ink, and of course I already sent the tin with my Husband today. He starts a new job today (Yeah!) and I told him he would make great friends with candy on his desk. He agreed and took it with him this morning. So I will make another one and post a better photo.
I got my stamp order on Monday with my new Sizzix dies. I used the large scallop die folded and put just under the blades to make a thank you card for my friend. Then I cut another scallop out of the Junto’s DSP which is in the Spanish Stampin’ Up Catalog. (Did you know that we have a Spanish Catalog now?). I then used my new leave die and cut the leaves out of Kiwi Kiss, Really Rust & Chocolate Chip C/S. The leaves were missing something so I decided to use my bone folder and make some veins in each of the leaves and then of course I sponged on each leaf. I ended up adding the Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla Satin ribbon around the fold after I took the photo.
