3-D Thursday Is Here With An "Eye" Appealing Treat!

Hi everyone! and welcome to this weeks 3-D Thursday.  I'm so glad you popped in to see the fun project we have for you today.   If you are joining us for the first time, then let me tell you that our group is made up of four Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that loved to create and share.  Thus we decided to form a team and bring you a new project every Thursday created by a team member with a Free! project worksheet you can download.  I'm pretty excited about this week because it's my turn to be the designer.
When holidays come around I always have so much fun browsing the candy aisle for fun treats.  I was at our local Walmart the other day and found some Reese's Eyeballs!  I was so excited!  I knew right then that would be my next project for 3-D Thursday.  So here is my...
 Alien Eyeball Treat!
I had so much fun making this treat.  Smiling all the while.  It's a matchbook treat box with a diecut hole for the eyeball to look out through.  There are so many different kinds of one eyed creatures you could make with the candy and some of Stampin' Up!'s wonderful Thinlits and dies.
Here's a picture of the inside.  I love the new In-color Lemon Lime Twist.  It's a wonderful color that kinda glows.  Perfect for Halloween Treats when paired with Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango.
Oh and the eyeballs are pretty yummy too!  I hope you have enjoyed my project this week and would love for you to order supplies to make your own by going to my online store and use 
Hostess Code# DJGNSPQ7.
Place a $35 online order and I will send you one of my adorable Eyeball Treats so you can have a sample.  You will also receive a package of our fun new Black Rhinestone Jewels as a "Thank You" from me for ordering.  A list of products I used is located on the FREE Project Sheet Download. 
Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Get ready for a fun Halloween Treat project for today's 3-D Thursday Project.  Our teammate Sarah Wills from Sarah's Ink Spot has come up with a super cute project that I'm sure you will want to make and it comes with it's own FREE printable project sheet!
Sarah has designed a super cute and spooky treat using Stampin' Ups! new Test Tube Treat Holders and Spooky Night DSP.  She finished it off with our Vintage Crochet Trim and The Merry Cafe and Spooky Cat stamp set.
What a wonderful gift this would make for a teacher or co-worker or friend.  Fill it up with some candy and I know the kiddos would love it as well.  You can create your own by simply downloading Sarah's FREE Project sheet below.

Inky Friends Autumn Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Inky Friends Autumn Blog Hop featuring stamp sets from Stampin' Ups! new Occasions Mini.  This hop is full of great ideas on how to use the new stamp sets so please hop all the way around to view it all!  If at any time you get lost you can find your bearings at the main Inky Friends Blog.  If you are following the hop in order then you have just arrived from the very creative Mickey Roberts' Blog - Paper Conversation and her beautiful creations featuring the stamp set Painted Harvest.  Don't you just love fall.  The beautiful colors just can't help but make you happy.  The stamp set I chose to showcase was Gourd Goodness which is a 2 step stamp set.  A 2 step stamp set means there is a stamp that has more detail to it and one that has more complete shade to it but both are of the same image.  Hoping that makes since.  It is also a photopolymer stamp set.

Let's take a look at my projects.
For my first project I knew that I wanted to use the stamp with the pair of Pumpkins on it.  So here is my finished project.  For the pumpkins I used the stamp pads Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango.  I also wanted to use the Pinewood Planks emboss folder so I embossed Crumb Cake cardstock using it.  I added just a small stripe of the beautiful new Fall DSP called Printed Autumn.  
It took awhile for my second project.  I really just wanted to stamp a few leaves in the color Crumb Cake for the background but it didn't look right.  So I kept on stamping and stamping actually because I was frustrated that I couldn't get it to look like I wanted, but then I really liked how it looked after it was completely stamp leaf over leaf.  Ha! Ha!  So anyway...The colors I used for this card wear Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, & Tangerine Tango.  I used the simple sentiment as my focal point die cutting it out with our Stitched Framelits and then a bigger square after that.  I used the 2 step leaf stamp and added a leaf to the side after fussy cutting it out.
Here's another shot of the card.  I will say it again, I love Fall and all the beautiful colors of the season.  At this time of year I always reflect back on what I am most thankful for in my life, including a loving God, a wonderful family and wonderful friends.  
That's all the projects I have for you as I kept the boys longer yesterday than expected.  So we road in the combine with Papaw, shelled corn, shelled beans and hunted for more locust.  Whew!
Now it's time to hop on over to my stampin' friend Cindy Elam's Blog - Heart's Delight Cards and see the wonderful creations she has designed for us.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Happy Hopping!

3-D Thursday Team Blog Hop - Wood Crate Framelits

Hello!  I am so glad you have joined us today.  We have little blog hop planned for you this week since it is the 5th Thursday of the month.  Our projects for this Hop will feature the Wood Crate Framelits.  If you have joined us in order, you have just arrived from Sarah's Blog - Sarah's Ink Spot.  Oh! didn't she have a super cute project for us!  I may just have to make one for my grandsons to look at, but not to touch.   They would love it!
I really struggled with this one.  I wanted to come up with something new that hadn't been done before.  When I was chatting with Sarah yesterday about it, I suddenly got an idea.  What if I made a crate star out of it?
and so I did.  
This is a fun project is easy to make and can have different words hung as a banner across the front.  Change it up for an event or Holiday it's up to you.  Or it could easily be used lying flat as a candle holder or candy dish.
Stamps: Hardwood
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede
For more info and full directions with pictures you can download the FREE Project sheet below.
And now it's time to hop on over to Debbie Henderson's Blog - Debbie's Designs.  I know you are just gonna love what she has created!  Don't forget to hop all the way around.  See you next Thursday!

Inky Friends - Suite Designs Blog Hop - Foil Frenzy Suite

Hi!  Welcome to the Inky Friends - Suite Blog Hop.  If you are following the hop in order then you have just arrived from my friend Rhonda's Blog - The Stampin Bunny.  What a fantastic job she did featuring the Suite Petal Garden.  Stampin' Up! has a variety of products that they have group together into "suites".  We have each chosen a "suite " to showcase.  
The suite I chose to showcase is Foil Frenzy.
Foil Frenzy Suite
There are a lot of fun products in this suite!
I love the Specialty Designer Series paper that goes with this suite and it just happens to be called Foil Frenzy.  It's so pretty and comes in 4 colors  and 3 designs in each pack.  I chose to use the Berry Bliss.  The paper was perfect for paper purse (bag) making.  I then made a matching little gift card.
I first started with making a box then added sides to it.  I finished the sides off by adding a pretty punched strip of cardstock made using the Decorative Ribbon Boarder
This is what it looks like from the side with the top closed.
My finale project is a Birthday Card using the Happy Birthday Framelit and stamp set Happy Birthday Gorgeous also featured in this suite.  The stamp set has so many great possibilities!  
I am sorry I didn't have more time to create but have been pretty busy hunting locust and locust shells with my triplet grandsons lately, I've had hardly any time to stamp.  I am just glad the frogs are gone for now.   
Now it's time to hop on over to my friend Sarah Wills Blog - Sarah's Ink Spot and see the amazing creations she has come up with using the Be Merry Suite.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Stamp Reivew Crew - Window Shopping

Hello! Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.  This hop features the stamp set -Window Shopping which also has a set of matching thinlits.

If after the hop you want to go back and look at our creations some more you can view them all by going to the main Stamp Review Crew Blog "here" and find them.  The Stamp Review Crew is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demos from around the world that focus on one stamp set per hop.  If you are hopping in order than you have just viewed the very talented Nikki Spencer's Blog - My Sandbox.  Her work is always amazing!  There are 15 stops on the hop so I hope you will join us for all of it!
 For this hop I chose to focus on the small flower background stamp.  I had made a pinwheel card earlier in the year for a stamp camp and thought that since it was getting later in the year that it might make a pretty fall card.  
  I chose to make a Pinwheel card in Crushed Curry, Early Espresso & Very Vanilla.  I couldn't decide if I liked the base card  Early Espresso or Very Vanilla so I did one of each.
I used one of our new Emboss Folders - Garden Trellis to emboss the featured part of the card giving it a quilt look.  The first card has the embossed sticking up and the second card has the emboss pointing down or depossed to look more like stitching.  The stamp set is really quite versatile.  It has some great sayings as well as designs.  The stamp set also comes with a small stamp to add to the back of your card above your signature.  Which card do you like?  Leave me a comment telling me which you like and I will use a random generator a pick a winner.  The winner will receive the card they chose.  Hope you'll play along!  Now it's time to hop on over to the ever so talented Bronwyn Eastley's blog - Add Inktive Designs.  I can't wait to see what fabulous creations she has for us!  Have a great day!
