Glitter Queens Blog Hop!!!!!!!

*** Thank you so very much for all of your comments!  I have read every single one and can't tell you how much I appreciate your kind words.  I will have another project for you on Wednesday using It's a Wrap Holidays! ****

Welcome to our first Glitter Queens Blog Hop!!  We are all very excited that you have joined us. You can visit us throughout the week and our hop posts will be at the top of our blogs.  Our hop will continue until Friday, September 9th.  You can visit as many times as you would like.

I have several projects for you and at the end of my post you will have a chance to win some Blog Candy!  I am  showcasing the brand new stamp called It's a Wrap Holidays which can be found in the Holiday Mini.  It is such a versatile set because you can stamp with it on Stampin' Up! cardstock or use labels that you purchase at your local office supply store.

I love the colors in this card because they make me feel as though Fall is almost here!  First, I made my own DSP by using Cajun Craze, More Mustard and Old Olive to stamp leaves from the set  French Foliage.  I stamped "Give Thanks" on Very Vanilla cardstock, cut them out and used my corner rounder on each of the corners.  I popped them up with dimensionals and finished the card with a piece of Old Olive satin ribbon.

For my next project I made a box using It's a Wrap Holidays and Batty for You  to decorate the outside.  I used address labels to stamp EEK! and wrapped them around chocolate which are inside the box. I have to admit that quite a few pieces of chocolate were consumed while wrapping the chocolate!  My box base and top are made out of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I used a piece of Pick Your Poison DSP, also from the Holiday Mini.  The scallop is one of our Big Shot dies called Scallop Squares Duo.  The cute bat, pumpkin, cat and EEK are sitting on a piece I punched out with the Postage Stamp punch.  Below you can see a picture of the top and bottom, side by side.


My last project is a box I made using the Big Shot and the Bigz Clear Scallop Square die.


I originally saw this style of box on Angie Juda's blog using the smaller scallop that I used on my previous box.  I played around with it and came up with this bigger sized one.  The bigger the box, the more candy you can put in it!!  I used another piece of DSP from Pick Your Poison.  For my shredded material, I thinly cut Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black cardstock and then scrunched it up into a ball.  You could also put it through your paper crimper.  My purse handle is our new Scallop Dots ribbon attached with a Designer Printed Brad.


Now it is time for BLOG CANDY!!  I will randomly pick one lucky person to win the clear stamp set It's a Wrap Holidays.  All you have to do is leave me a comment by Friday, September 9th at 11:59 pm! It's that easy!

I hope my projects have inspired you to begin working on some Halloween treats for your friends and family.  I also hope that you will visit all of the Glitter Queens for more project ideas and more chances to win Blog Candy!  The next stop is Eileen Cassisi.  To visit her blog you can click here or use the link at the bottom of my post.  In case you have missed someone along the way, links to all of the Glitter Queens can be found below.  Thank you so much for stopping by!
