Stayin' Cool!

Whewie!  It's HOT!  It's 6 p.m. here and the heat index is 
still at 101 degrees!! 
So glad I'm inside and cool.  I went down to my stamp room where it's really cool and played around a bit with some new project ideas.  I'm still going through the free stuff I brought back with me from Utah.  Wow!

One of the new stamp sets I bought out of the new Stampin' Up! catalog was "It's A Wrap Occasions".  
It is too stinkin' CUTE!
It's on Page 59 of the IB&C  - Wood Mount $27.95   Clear Mount $19.95
 The really cool part is that you stamp right on those handy, dandy Avery (or brand of your choice) mailing labels....wrap them around Hershey's nuggets for a cute little treat that's sure to make someone smile from ear to ear. I will say that I really prefer this stamp set in clear mount so that I can see exactly where I'm stamping my image.  It was SO easy.  Here are the labels I used....


I used my Big Shot and the "Matchbox Die" and cut out a box from Melon Mambo card stock.  I then embossed the outer part of the box with the Square Embossing Folder.  I added the labels to the candy...a little bling and some ribbon to the box and VOILA!  



I love it!  Such a quick and easy project!  (And here's a little secret....I've got a sneaking suspicion that we'll see more of these wrapper stamps in the future....just sayin'!)

If you'd like to see the stamps a little closer, check them out in the New Idea Book and Catalog.  If you don't have one, you can go take a peek at it on my website.  Just click HERE

Thanks for stopping by!
Blessings,
