I really do own other stamp sets from the new 2016 Holiday Catalog but I just can't seem to stop playing with this one, lol! I think we will just designate this week Cookie Cutter Week and finish out this week with the Cookie Cutter Halloween and Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp sets. Then I'll give them a rest for just a bit. This is one more project that I featured at my Cookie Cutter Halloween Class this past weekend. As much as I love the little Halloween images in this set, I'm so glad there is a fall option as well. This little scarecrow was the perfect addition to my cute little Pumpkin Spice Latte gift package:
If you are not familiar with the Starbucks Lattes they are a substantially larger package than the regular Via packages. I created the little gift pouch using some leftover 12 x 12 Rich Razzleberry Textured Card Stock that I had been hoarding. (I really miss Stampin' Up's 12 x 12 textured Card stock...I hope they are reading this today!)
The pouch is super simple and quick to make. The 12 x 12 CS is cut at 2 3/4" x 12" and scored at 4 1/4" and 4 1/2". The top of the back panel was created by attaching a piece of 2 3/4" x 6" Designer Series Paper to the top half of my card stock and then inserting that end from the outside of the Lots of Labels Framelits Die to the inside, aligning the top of the die with the top of my card stock. I ran it through my Big Shot just enough to cut through the top only creating the scalloped edge. The bottom front panel is 2 3/4" x 4 1/4". Of course we had to make a card to go with it!
The card is a combination of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock, the new Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper and our new Copper Foil Sheets. Can I just say these Copper Foil Sheets are beautiful and the new Cable Knit Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder....stunning. My scarecrow was heat embossed with our new Copper Embossing Powder and colored with Aqua Painters.
I was experimenting one night and heat embossed the sentiment in Copper Embossing Powder on the Copper Foil sheets. I wasn't sure how it was going to come out but it actually looks etched or engraved in person. Beautiful. You will definitely be seeing this technique again although I will say that you do need to use the Embossing Buddy first. The foil tends to pick up every little smudge and fingerprint and the Embossing Buddy will eliminate the embossing powder from sticking where you don't want it to.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of my Pumpkin Spice Latte project! And please come back tomorrow for the last installment in Cookie Cutter Week! Thanks for stoppin' by!
