Stampin'Up! BIG SHOT and DIES

Super Sunday everyone ~ I hope you are enjoying your day and thanks for joining me! Today one of the ladies in our neighborhood is opening her house to several direct sale representatives and I was so pleased that she asked me to share my passion of Stampin'Up! For the event, I made a few things, two of which I'll show in this post. Trying to use up some retired designer series paper, I thought I'd make a couple of candy treats for Thanksgiving. So, I used my Big Shot along with the Scallop Circle #2 and Leaves #2 Dies. I cut one piece of DSP and one piece of solid card stock, using the Scallop Circle Die, and placed in between those two pieces a Ghirardelli chocolate. You'll notice two of the leaves have been crumpled to give some texture. I stamped GRATEFUL using the Falling Leaves stamp set on page 29 of the 2011/12 Idea Book & Catalog on the one leaf that was not crumpled.

Using that same paper (I had lots left over as you can tell) I covered Hershey candy bars and did basically the same thing with the Leaves #2 Die. I love the 1 1/4 Striped Grosgrain Ribbon used on these.
Once again, I used a stamp from the Falling Leaves stamp set.

I hope this has given you some ideas for Thanksgiving and ways to also use some of your retired paper. Things that I make to give away or sell, I try to use as much of the "old stuff" as possible to make room for some "new stuff". Have a blessed day and hope to see you back here soon!

"Life itself, every bit of health that we enjoy, every hour of liberty and free enjoyment, the ability to see, to hear, to speak, to think, and to imagine ~ all this comes from the hand of God. We show our gratitude by giving back to Him a part of that which He has given to us." Billy Graham
