Try It Tuesday~Peanut cup with The Curtsey Boutique!

Hi guys!!
I have a fun tutorial I did for The Curtsey Boutique some time ago. 
 It is for the guys in the family:).
Fabric Stiffener (Helmar)
Vintage label
Jar of Peanuts
burlap bags
wooden scoop
empty water bottle

Project Instructions:
1.   Remove the tie cord from the burlap bag.
2.   Put an empty plastic water bottle into the burlap bag.

3.       Apply the fabric stiffener to the burlap bag.   I used a large paint brush.
4.   After the bag is really saturated with the fabric stiffener, sit it down until it is standing on it’s own.
5.       Let it dry.  It took mine about 4 hours to be completely dry.

6.       Cut off the top of the plastic bottle with a box cutter.
7.       Decorate the front and add the twine.
8.       When you are ready to serve or give as a gift insert the wooden scoop with peanuts!!
9.       Super cute!!! Dad will love it!!!! His own Peanut Cup!

The burlap bags can be found on The Curtsey Boutique's Etsy Shop.

Very fun project:)

A Fall Banner with Clear Scraps and My Mind's Eye~

Hi !!!!
I have a Fall Banner to show you using the acrylic 5 piece Banner set by Clear Scraps.
Clear Scraps is partnering with My Mind's Eye this week, so I had some awesome paper's and embellishments to decorate the Banner with.
Take a look~
 I had such fun putting this together.  The wood grain My Mind's Eye papers were perfect for this. They screamed Fall to me.  The trim is stripes of material with twine added.

 The large letters were stamped using the script background stamp by Darkroom Door.
  Loved the look it gave the letters. There is some Maya Road on the Banner too, but mostly My Mind's Eye and Clear Scraps.

Beacon 3-In-1 glue was used on the large embellishments.
The pumpkin and crow are Sizzix dies by Tim Holtz.
Thanks for stopping by~

Try It Tuesday~carving a Pumpkin, my way!

Hi guys!!
I have a fun project for you to try.  Carving a Pumpkin~ sound easy? It is!!
First draw one, then draw it on rubber~

That is the first step to carving a Pumpkin stamp :):) 
 I like carving this kind of Pumpkin~ no mess!!! And it doesn't rot after a few weeks.

I'm calling this my Fall set!!! The Pumpkin leaves are so small, I mounted each leaf
 on a cork, so I would have a better handle when stamping with them.

  Worked great!!!
I did two projects using this set~

A couple of cards~
I used Darkroom Door background stamp/wire and
 the sentiment stamp is by Avocado Arts.  The ink is by Ranger.
Next project~

You always have cupcake topper's if you own stamps:):)
Thanks for stopping by~
See ya soon~
