A Sweet Day!

It was a "baking sort of day" so...I decided  to try out Stampin' Up's Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps.
I used the smiley Jack-O' Lantern face.

Here's what I did:
1. rolled dough into balls
2. flattened with a glass, dipped in sugar
3. dipped cookie stamp into sugar, then pressed into dough
4. used a biscuit cutter to trim away excess and to make uniform in size
5. baked at 350 for 10 min.

Here they are, hot from the oven!

Next, I decorated, trying sugars and using colored food coloring gel to paint on faces.
Fun fun!

I just can't get enough of this stamp set! I wanted to create a more masculine Birthday card, using Stampin' Up's Wonderfall stamp set & coordinating Autumn Accents Bigz die. I embossed the new Core'dinations cardstock (in Early Expresso) with the sqaure lattice folder. To "roughen" it up a bit, I lightly sanded with our new Stampin' Sanding block (Love!) I also added clear embossing on the maple leaf with the Daydream Medallions stamp set & the sentiment is from Apothecary Art. Thanks for looking! : )

Wine Bottle Tag

My Stampin' Up upline shared this pocket tag with me. A folded 8 x 8 piece of paper is used to create it.
I thought it would make a cute wine tag!
I used our Wonderfall stamp set & coordinating Bigz Autumn Accents die along with the Friendly Phrases set. I am loving the Comfort Cafe Designer series paper, great for fall projects. Happy Creating!

Fall is in the air...

I saw this wreath idea on Pinterest and had to make one myself! I have looked everywhere for the original post & can't find it, so I can't give credit to the original designer. But it's all over Pinterest and google. I took a wreath frame, wrapped it in moss (used hot glue to adhere). Then, added mini pumpkins and a burlap bow. Simple!
