Paper Pumpkin Sweet as Pie October 2014

The minute I saw this kit, all I could think of is Cheese Heads. Do people outside of Green Bay know about cheese heads? I had to put one together and convert it from a pie box to a little wedge of cheese!


With a little bit of Hello Honey paper and the Large Polka Dot embossing folder, you can make cheese. I rubbed the paper with Versa Mark to create texture.

I used Mossy Meadow ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim to add a little bling.

The banner is stamped with the new photopolymer Back to Basics Alphabet in Mossy Meadow.

Go Packers!

Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop

If you are looking for Christmas, Hanukkah and everything snowy, then this is the blog hop for you. In this blog hop we are covering the Winter part of the Stampin' Up! 2014 Holiday Catalog.

We did the first half of the catalog in the Fall Blog Hop. Those links are still active if you want to see the fall ideas.

I hope you enjoyed Jen's projects where she featured the New Born King stamp set.

I am using a single stamp called Christmas Bauble. A fun and pretty stamp that you can color, emboss, punch out the center and so many other ideas.

Here is a card using traditional Christmas colors and a Café Bag to match.

In this card, I punched out the center of the stamp and used it as an "O" in the word JOY.  The paper is the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack.

The next cards show the stamp using one of my favorite new colors - Lost Lagoon. I love that color!

The first card shows the center covered up by a circle with the word Joy from the stamp set Endless Wishes. Endless Wishes is one of my favorite stamp sets. So many cute little words to play with.

The second card shows the center punched out to create small round baubles.  The greeting is from Endless Wishes.

My last idea was to actually make the bauble a hanging ornament. I cut the holly leaves off to balance the ornament so it would hang evenly.

The Christmas Bauble stamp offers so many creative possibilities. I hope these ideas inspire you to create with the Christmas Bauble.

The next stop on the blog hop is Heidi where she is featuring Festival of Trees.

A complete list of blog hop participants is located here.

Thanks for hopping with Stampin' Addicts.
