Happy hump day! I hope your week is going well. Yesterday I went to see a movie with the Hubster. We saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It was actually very good and the back story really hooked me. A must see. After we got back Derek went to check the mail and stopped to chat with our neighbor and their daughter came out and let him know it was her 8th birthday and all the fun things they where going to do that evening. Girls just love to chat with him (I think it’s because he’s cute and he listens to them). When he came in the house and told me, I immediately went into my stash and pulled out a cute birthday card we made in class many moons ago (a punch art tutu dress). I also pulled 6 juvenile cards to give her for a gift. About 45 minutes later there’s a knock at the door and she handed us a piece of paper with a hand written note by her thanking us for the gift of cards. How sweet was that! Now on to today’s post………
I am excited to say this is the third project I’ve made with the Num-Num stamp set. Woohoo! You can check out the Hamburger Box with belly band and “Just a Little Something for You“. When I saw this tag it made me think of a cherry pie (I love cherry pies). The base starts with Soft Suede. Face layers of Real Red and Whisper White which I stamped (in Real Red) to look like a table cloth with the long narrow strip from Work of Art stamp set popped up with dimensionals. I wrapped Early Espresso 1/4″ cotton ribbon around the face layers before applying to the base. The pie crust is made from a Crumb Cake 2-3/8″ scallop and 1-7/8″ circles lightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink. To mimic the tag I added a slightly larger circle (2″) edge in Chocolate Chip. I was thinking what would make the center holes in the pie crust and while looking through my punches I saw the Cupcake Builder punch and had my a-ha moment! They are punched from Cherry Cobbler embossed Real Red. The scallop circle is popped with dimensionals. Next the tag was stamped with Soft Suede and hand trimmed. Then I stamped again onto Whisper White with Versamark and heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler then trimmed the “pie” banner and hand cut pie circle then adhered these to the tag. Finally, the tag is popped with dimensionals. This totally makes me want to have a piece of cherry pie. Lol! Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a great day!
