Paper Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pie Boxes

Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin
Sweet As Pie, November Kit

I put together a few of these boxes, added SU Pumpkin Pie paper to the top and sides and a strip of craft paper was punched with a scallop punch for the crust.  The whip cream was made by punching six scallop circles out of coffee filter paper and crumpled.  The boxes are filled with treats.  I looking forward to some real pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving.

Hershey Whoppers were poured into candy bags and tied with a twist tie.  "A Prize In Every Box" were made by cutting a piece of 3 3/4" x 4 1/4" piece of paper, folding and taping up the sides around a dollar bill and then taped shut.  Each prize was stamped with a different figure from the Stampin' Up Turkey Talk (retired) stamp set and colored with Design Spectracolor pencils.

Prizes were inserted into the box with the candy and then sealed closed with Stampin' Up Kraft Stickers.

Precious Baby

The foundation for this card is a piece of 110# White card stock.  Stars were added to a piece of Stampin' Up Marina Mist using the SU Stars Decorative Mask and Ranger Texture Paste.  The baby sleeping on the moon is a PSX G-1533 stamp, colored with Copic Markers.  Wink of Stella GL Clear was brushed onto the moon for a sparkly sheen.  Sentiment is computer generated and cut out with the SU Word Window Punch.

Stampin' Up Wood Mount Half Case Cover

For this project, I used a 3 1/4" x 11" piece of Authentique Foundations paper and stamped it with a Stampendous Music Score stamp in Staz-On ink..  The bird cage was cut from the Straight From The Nest Cricut cartridge, page 25 at 3" using SU Very Vanilla card stock.  The flowers are punched from a tiny Bellflower punch by Punch Bunch.  Everything is sponge brushed with Ranger Vintage Photo ink.  I added some lace for texture and some SU basic jewels for bling.  The little key is from my stash as is the wooden bird that was painted with acrylic paints.  Finally the decorated cover was inserted into the sleeve of the acrylic box.

3D Scarecrow

Pick O' The Patch
Close To My Heart  stamp set "Pick O' The Patch"

 3D Scarecrow stamped three times onto watercolor paper and colored with Stampin' Up ink pads and a watercolor brush.  Edges brushed with Ranger Vintage Photo ink and a sponge.

Two prints of the scarecrow were painted and then cut out into pieces then added to the base image with dimensional foam tape.

Autumn Accents

Order Bags, that hold the Stampin' Up Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  I thought that this would be a fitting way to deliver the Autumn Accents Die ordered by my customers:

Basic brown lunch sacks, Stampin' Up Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Stampin' Up card stock in Cherry Cobbler, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze and Early Expresso.  After die cutting the leaves, I brushed the edges with White Staz-On Ink.  Stampin' Up Designer Buttons (Brights) tied with a piece of linen thread were added.  Thanks stamp is from Stampin' Up Vintage Verses stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink.

This was not my original idea, I found a card on the internet for South Hill Designs showing these beautiful leaves.
