It's hard to believe that Summer is almost over and it is time to be thinking about Fall Projects and Christmas already. My kids have returned to Arizonia for school and it is time to share all the projects that I have been working on over the past few months for CHA and JustRite.
This fun pail is from Stampendous. For this project I first chose the kind of Chocolate Kisses for my pail. If you haven't been to the Hershey Chocolate Kiss section of Walmart lately you will be overwelmed by how many kinds of Kisses there are (yes it is a section of the aisle). But then again you may be inspired when you see all the options available. They have little tags that say It's a Girl, It's a Boy, Happy Birthday and Thank You. Plus all the flavor choices. So stay tuned for lots of projects using "CHOCOLATE"
The Giant Stamped image is from the new JustRite Stampers Collection - Notice that the center is the same but the borders are different. You will love all the design possibilites with this new stamp set - you can see the graphics for the new set here:JB 08150 Christmas Stamp Ensemble. The set is 3 1/4" and comes with 6 designer borders and 6 designer centers which means you can interchange all the images as well as write your own sentiment inside the center on the stamp. The set does not come with the wooden stamper - you will need to order that separately -JB 08117 Harmony Classic Stamper III. Or you can purchase the JB 08140 Harmony Classic Circle III Stamp Ensemble which has the wood block and 6 additional Interchangeable Designer Centers and Designer Borders. You can now pre-order your stamps from the JustRite Website, they will begin shipping in mid September.
To get the distress feel for the image I multiloaded my stamp with green and red ink, so that it would coordinate with my Basic Grey Paper. I used Spellbinder's Nestabilites to diecut my images in circles and scalloped circles. This stamp uses the largest dies from your sets.
To Jazz up the sides of the clear pail Angela and I decided to use the Candy Cane Border Punch from Tonic Studios to create this fun 3-D Border. First use the punch to punch the border in the green cardstock. Then punch additional candy canes from red cardstock- retrieve the bows that fall out of the punch cut. Next place red cardstock behind the green cardstock and adhere the two together. Play with the bows to make them stick out from the cardstock and use tiny glue dots to adhere the bows to the border. The embellishments between the candy canes are epoxy stickers from Best Creations. Have a pail you would like to share with everyone post a link in the comment section of my post.
