Haven't posted for a while, but I've been a busy bee! Lots of Halloween treats to share with you. I stamped up a storm at my friend Stasia's house this past Sunday with a couple of other Stampin' Up! demonstrator friends of mine. Loved all of that creativity spread out on two tables in Stasia's stamping studio - but what a mess four stampers make when they really get going!
Here's one of the treats that I prepared while I was there. It's our turn to bring the treats to soccer on Saturday. Naturally, it's got to be a Halloween treat! Have you seen the Pringles Stix? I hadn't, until someone else brought them for soccer treats earlier in the season. Immediately, I knew that they'd work great with the Pillow Box die for the Big Shot! I cut out lots of Pillow Boxes, then cut off the "ends" of the boxes (the parts that are supposed to seal closed on either side). Voila - a perfect litte wrap for these fun Stix!
I borrowed Stasia's fun Tasty Sweet stamp set for the sentiment. The candy corn image from the same set added a touch of color. This is a really fun & inexpensive set and I'm sorry I overlooked it in the catalog (it's on page 24 if you'd like to check it out). Great for cards, treats & scrapbook layouts!
Here's a shot of all of the Stix in their pumpkin basket, ready to go on Saturday. Crossing my fingers for nice weather - they played the first part of their tournament in the POURING rain last Saturday! I've got two more sets of treats to share, so check back tomorrow!
