Snowman Candy Wraps

Today I want to share my Snowman Candy Bar Wraps.  I saw these all over pinterest, most of them with a template to print out which is no longer available.  So with the help of my favorite face stamps from Peachy Keen, I decided to make my own.  They are so fun and I love the way they turned out.

I used PK-521 Winter Faces, some white cardstock, some other stamps for the snowflake buttons and the heart.  I colored in with markers and chalk.  I used some leftover pieces of flannel for the hats & scarf.  a pretty jingle bell from my stash and I cut 2 of the smallest snowflakes from my new snowflake and border die set from my craft spot out of glitter foam to add the the brim of the cap.

The candy underneath on these are Hershey's Cookies & Cream.  I will be making more of these for the craft fair in original flavor and more of this flavor too.  I used a rectangle die cut on cricut for wrapper and the snowflakes on the caps.

I am entering into these Challenges:

Snowman light or candy dish

I love to make these little snowmen, they make such a cute Christmas decoration.  I decorate with purple for Christmas even the lights on my tree :)

The main base is a flowerpot painted and turned upside down.  Topped with a small glass bowl which I frosted the glass. Then I used the flower pot plate to go on top of the bowl as a lid and covered it with a flannel material and stuffed a plastic bag to pooch it up then tied it up and cut up a Pom Pom  top.  Then I added a pretty glittery snowflake ribbon to top her hat off.  The face is cut from vinyl for the eyes and mouth.  I didn't have orange vinyl so I just cut it out of card stock and just curved it with my pen until the stiffness wore out of it a little so it would adhere better to the bowl.  The cuts are  from a Creative Kuts filesnowman slider card.  The beautiful snowflake border and all of the little snowflakes you see adhered everywhere are a new set of metal die cuts I just won from My Craft Spot on a blog hop I attended.  I was so so very happy to be the lucky winner of these.  Oh all accept for the snowflake on top of the hat the I stamped with an adorable Peachy Keen snowman face (love), this one was from SCAL2 library.   Then I cut a bunch of the die cut snowflakes using purple glitter foam to add more dimension and sparkle and adhered them over the white ones and even added some tiny ones around on her cap.

Here she is with her little light on and her hat off
And one more all back together with her light on :)
I am placing this project in:
 Peachy Keen November 2013 Release Challenge #2 - Up-cycle something in your home (canister, cereal box, paper roll, etc.) into a Holiday decoration for your home. 
I have used a flower pot and a candy dish :)

Owl Candle & Card Set

Good Morning my Crafty friends.  Over the last couple of days I have been working on some owl projects for my upcoming craft fair.  All of these projects are made with NAPKINS.  This morning I finished the owl card made up of scraps mostly from this mess on my desk from all of my Fall projects this week. 

Here is the set:

 First let me show you my owl candles, I love the way the turned out. 

The candles are the battery operated ones, Mmmm they smell like vanilla.  The Owls are from napkins that I cut down and peeled them down to 1 ply.  I used my heating tool to slightly melt the wax and adhere the napkin piece to it. 

I will try to do a tutorial for you on this technique sometime today (done now & posted below).

Here is my matching card, I used a piece of one of the napkins that was left over for my focal point.  But Card base itself is my own design that I created an SVG file for.  The pattern layer is from my scraps, the ribbon is also from my scraps.  The yellow scalloped frame was left over from another card I made this week, it was cut from foam using a metal die.  The stamped banner I cut by hand from scraps and then stamped with the sentiment give thanks and popped up on foam dots.

The inside of the Card I used both of the pattern papers from the front and stamped with a coordinating stamp from that same set.

Here is my desk filled with a scrappy mess before I started my card.

I am entering this card into these fun challenges:

HIMCR #123 - Super Scraps Saturday!
I am entering the whole set into these fun challenges:
Jo's Scrap Shack - #25 Things with Wings
Video Tutorial on how to apply Napkin to Candle
 This next project is a weekly planner, I made a new cover for it out of one of the napkin pieces.  I used a technique where you take the layer of napkin and some Saran wrap and using an iron you adhere it together.  I watched a video on U-Tube to learn that trick.  I used some bling for the eyes and stamped the year and sentiment.

On the inside of the planner I once again stamped the sentiment, this time in orange and I also stamped a cute little Owl and colored him in with my colored pencils.  I also added a ribbon to match inside for a bookmark.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my projects!  Don't forget to leave me a comment please, I love reading what you all think of my work :)  I hope you have a Wonderful and Crafty Day!!!

Scarecrow give thanks card

Hello my crafty friends, sorry I didn't get another card posted yesterday as planned.  My internet was in and out and driving me crazy.  Today I wanted to share this fall card with you.
This one was too easy and fun to make with the cute scarecrow coming from my sticker stash.  I just love him on the bright yellow foam circle backed with an orange scallop circle cut with a metal die on my big shot.  I used my cuttlebug Traffic Jam folder on the green border behind then inked with my walnut stain distress ink.  the background paper is from DCWV.  the banner is handmade and stamped with fall stamps from my stash.  I also added a ribbon of raffia and strips of orange rice paper hand torn and a yellow button to top it of with raffia tied thru the button holes.
This card has already been sold to my Friend

Feels Like Fall

Here is the first of my fall cards to be given out for Thanksgiving this year.

For this card I used lots of fall colors and layering.  On the main Background I embossed with Sizzix Diamonds folder & the circle is embossed with Cuttlebug simply charmed squares.  The pattern paper is from DCWV. 

The adorable leaf die cut is from svgcuts, I used the top layer as a stencil only and dabbed lightly (If you look very closely at the leaf you can see the veins) with ink then stamped the ca-ute Peachy Keen face stamp from the Everyday Characters set. 

The adorable fall stamps inside and out are from a stamp set I received in a cardmaker kit last year.
