Witch's Brew

Getting in the Halloween mood?  If your kids (or you) are having a Halloween party and need party favors here is one that will make all the other mothers think you spent a spook full of money on.  We did this Saturday at our SU group meeting.  Take can (this is a 16 oz) spray it any colour (use Krylon) and let dry.  If you are going to  put in food, please use a baggie to be on the safe side with the paint.

The SU supplies used:
Wicked Fun DSP #117400
WicKed Cool Stamp Set #120600
Rhinestone Brads Pg 187
Crop-A-Dile #108362

Cut all pieces the same length.  The main can wrap wide enough to cover your can then attach using 2-sided tape.  Second wrap about 2" wide attach with 2-sided tape (I found that works better than sticky strip or snail) what looks like the back of can line.  To make the flower, cut strip about 1 1/2" wide  used the Scallop Edge Border Punch #119882 and punch the whole length.  Go back and cut just between the scallops and then fold like a fan.  Attach end to end on the side that you don't want to show making a circle.  Flip over and close up as tight as you can get it using a glue gun put a dollop in the center to hold (mini glue dots won't hold) shut attach to can. Stamp your image on Whipser White CS, sponge edges with Classic Black Ink, using the Decorative Label Punch #12097 (Holiday Mini), colour in if want to and attach to flower.  Handle is attached  by centering on can and punching out with your Crop-A-Dile and the rhinestone brads.  You can make these for any occasion.  Hope you enjoy.  Happy Stampin' until we stamp together again, Lynette

Tart and Tangy

OK, can you believe that Summer is almost over?  School starts back here in about two weeks!!!!!  So for one last blast of summer (before Christmas cards are made) here is a card that makes you think just laying baack in the hammockand a big glass of iced cold lemonade.  My upline made this using retired cardstock so I revamped with current SU colors.  It is a beginner as far as skill level but using some of the techniques and punches takes a little more time.  My beginning stampers made it in our stamp club.  I used my Big Shot for the first time. Here is the card receipe:
Stamp Sets: Tart and Tangy, Warm Words (retired)
Punches: 1 1/4" Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, Large Oval, Small Oval
Folder: Square Lattice (in the Summer Mini)
Colors: Daffodil Deloght, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Silver Brads, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Big Shot
Happy Stampin' until we stamp again, Lynette
