EEK!

It won't be long now and the new mini catalog from SU will be available! It is the biggest mini I have ever seen and it is chock full of wonderful items. One of the fun items is a new stamp set called Sweet Centers. It is designed to be used with a new item called Sweet Treat Cups but it can definitely on it's own as well.
Here is a fun project using one of the new stamps in the set...

Yummy, right? I made myself sick on pumpkins, lol! The first bag of the season is always a doozey. We used elegant eggplant as the base, cut 4.25" by 11" and scored at 5" and 6". The stamp was inked in old olive and we used the 1 3/4" punch to create the center window. The circle that we punched out was reused on the top of the treat bag--no waste! The pumpkins are in a small cello bag so there was no need to put acetate in the window. A little bit of pumpkin grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.
TIP: the 1 3/4" circle punch will not reach in far enough on the eggplant layer so we used a pencil to draw the circle onto the cardstock and then cut away a slightly larger square with the cutter. The Circle Cutter would work, I just don't own it yet. A Coluzzle would work too. The stamped layer will cover up the hole anyway so no worries.
Thanks for visiting!
