Perfectly Preserved Pair Nugget Jar

This is a project I worked on this afternoon after finding a video of Kay Kalthoff's on how to make them.  It was really fun to make, but it did take me a long time.  Of course, the first time you make something new it always does take longer with the first one.  This is a little box that holds 4 Hershey nuggets wrapped in 1" x 3" Orchard Harvest DSP.  I stamped the jar from the Perfectly Preserved stamp set on Very Vanilla cardstock twice for the front and the back of the box,  and punched out an oval to show the nuggets on both sides.  I used Lucky Limeade for the pear and Early Espresso for the stem of the pair. The accessories are the Cannery Set Framelit Die and Bitty Banner Framelit Die, 1/8" Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon, Big Shot, Large Oval Punch, and Glue Dots.

Triple Time Leaves

This is a birthday card I made for my downline's birthday.  It was my first attempt at making a triple-time card and it was a lot of fun.  It does take a lot of card stock.  I made another one for Halloween for a swap this month, but I will post it later once everyone has received their card from me.

Googly Ghoul Witch

This is another Googly Ghoul candy holder for Halloween which also shows the inside.  I made belly bands to hold it together.

Googly Ghouls Candy Holders

Artwork Copyright Stampin' Up! 2012

These little goblins are the cutest thing in the Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set is called Googly Ghouls and comes with six stamps including a  witch, spider, bat and a Boooo.  The Holiday Catalog also offers a Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit that comes with 20 printed double-sided tags (which is what I used to layer Frankie on). It also comes with 10 Glassine bags, 50 googlie eyes and Pumpkin Pie/Whisper White Baker's Twine.  It is so awesome!  I'll be making some more samples with this set and the Designer Kit and I'll post them to my blog soon.  What a fun set!
