Whooo's Sweet?

Hello, Peeps!  Happy December!

I've been trying hard to squeeze in time to blog this past week and tonight's the night.  It's actually a "stampin' and football" night here.  I'm creating a few things here in the studio while watching the Redskins' game.  Woot!  It's sort of hard to stay in the Christmas frame of mind since we had a 70+ degree day here in Northern Virginia.  Don't get me wrong....I love it!

So....Here's today's fun, little project.  
I'm calling it "Whoooo's Sweet on Christmas?"...


Isn't it fun?  The six Hershey's Nuggets are covered with 1" wide strips of paper from the "Snow Festival" Designer Series Paper Pack.  I added a fun punch art owl made with the Owl Builder punch and coordinating card stock.  The tree ornament was made using one of the Holiday Ornaments Framelits and card stock.  It's embossed with a sentiment from the "More Merry Messages" stamp set and Pewter Embossing Powder.  The white stitched ribbon is a perfect way to finish it off.  Take a look at the owl's eyes...Those are actually Rhinestones that were colored with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.

Now for my favorite part....the bag "topper".  It was created using a piece of Soft Suede card stock.  I opened up my Woodgrain Embossing Folder and laid it on my work surface.  I then took my Early Espresso ink pad and rubbed it all over the top side of the folder making sure that it was completely inked up.  I then put the Suede card stock in, closed it up and ran it through the Big Shot.  Voila!  See the definition?  It's so cool that by just adding a little ink to the folder first makes the whole thing just "pop".

This project really is a quick and easy....down and dirty...stinkin' cute little gift to make.  All the supplies you need can be found at my Online Stampin' Shop.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to leave me a note or send me a note.  I LOVE hearing from you!!

Alrighty....back to stampin' and football!

Have a magical day!

  1. Michelle, this is so stinkin' cute! One of my daughter's school mascot is an owl so I might have to case this idea for teacher gifts. Feel free to post any ideas you have for a cougar mascot?
