H&M blog hop with CANDY!!!



I hope you all had fun with the hanna stamps blog hop. As a matter of fact, I think it is so much fun that how about we do again! From today until October 7th H&M Stamps is holding their first blog hop.

H&M Stamps really has some wonderfully creative ideas from the DT Members. Our challenge was to create a fall/Halloween 3D project. Here's who will be joining in on the fun of this month's blog hop:

1. Tracy Dorton
2. Julia Aston
3. Shannon Erskine
4. Neva McMullen
5. Sarah Green
6. Carolina Buchting
7. Debbie Corbari
8. Nancy Levine
9. Me- Janette Olen
10. Heather Rolin

My projects are not specifically fall related however, I think that they are wonderful gift ideas for the fall and winter months since it is getting colder outside. With the weather getting colder, how about some yummy treats to warm you up? My first project I seriously love how it came out- it is a mug to hold a packet of warm beverage be it tea, cocoa, soup or in my example coffee. I love this newly released set from H&M Stamps and it is great for coffee lovers but also can easily be used for tea or cocoa especially this first project. Take a peek:



I used this template and adapted it a bit for my own needs. I did not use adhesive to keep it closed because I stitched the 3 sides of it. I used my heart cb folder for the base because I thought it coordinated perfect with the sweet cup image. I used my fiskars heart border punch along the bottom, my corner rounder punch on the top and my corner scallop punch on the image. I accented with pearls, a spica glitter pen on the heart on the mug and ribbon of course. I decorated behind the packet with the coffee bean stamp from the set. The sentiment totally fits for items other than coffee like cocoa or soup. I think I am going to make these for Christmas gifts for the bus drivers etc. Inside this example is a packet of international foods vanilla latte- yum!

Supplies:
stamps- H&M STamps coffe's a brewin
CS- PTI sweet blush, choc chip, white
ink- choc chip
accessories- spica glitter pen, heart cb folder, grosgrain ribbon, copics, fiskars border punch, marvy corner scallop punch, corner rounder punch, pearls


Here is my second project:



I bought a mug from Walmart and filled it with a packet of french vanilla coffee. I decorated the tissue paper with the coffee beans stamp. I stamped the coffee cups image and then stamped my sentiment beneath it. It was colored with copics and then adhered to a scalloped rectangle and used my punch to make 2 holes in the top. I tied a ribbon around the mug and through the punched holes into a bow and voila! Now you have a very easy thoughtful gift for someone special.

Supplies:
stamps- H&M Stamps Coffe's a-Brewin
CS- choc chip, white
ink- choc chip, cocoa
accessories- mug, tissue paper, grosgrain ribbon, nestabilities
