More Than Chocolate

While playing with my Jar of Love and Balloon Builders stamps the thought of Malted Milk Balls popped into my head.  So I decided to pop some into the jars!

I stamped them with Chocolate Chip and Soft Suede using the two round stamps from Balloon Builders.  Then I started thinking of what I would put with them and found my Lovely Amazing You stamp set.  With fingers crossed I looked in my Stampin' Up! store and find the set is still available.  The set is not in the Annual Catalog, but you can still order it.  Yayyy!


Chocolate Chip 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Whisper White 5 1/4" x 4"
Regals Designer Series Paper Stripes (Chocolate Chip) 4" x 1 1/2"

Stamp the jars with Memento Black and then fill them with "malted milk balls".  You could also make them colors instead, maybe all red for Cinnamon Balls, or other favorite round candy.  Of course you'd need a different stamp to go with it, since it's not CHOCOLATE!  ha ha ha

Inside I stamped "You're So Sweet" from Mixed Drinks.  Those were the words I wanted, so I was so happy to find them in this set!

Pop up the jars with Stampin' Dimensionals, add a bow from Jar of Love and you're all set!

I've Got My Eyes On You

Eye, err... I spotted this idea somewhere and simply had to play with it.  Once I found where I tucked away my little googly eyes, I was on a roll!.

I just knew the Sheltering Tree tree would be perfect and I think it turned out pretty well.  I already have a couple more ideas in my head to make this a little differently.

Pumpkin Pie - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Smoky Slate - cut with largest scallop circle (after I stamped the tree)
DSP - Halloween Night 5 1/4" x 2" - (available September 1st)

Sheltering Tree
Glamper Greetings - (available September 1st)
Jar of Haunts - (available September 1st)
Ink: Memento Black

Eyeballs - from your favorite craft outlet. 

Here's a close up so Eye Can See You! 

This week could be hit and miss as far as me posting to my blog.  I'll do the best I can.  Our Primary Election is August 30th and working for the County Elections Department, I'll have a couple of busy weeks.  Keep checking in though... I love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment for me!

Thank you for looking in today.
