Stamp Review Crew: Happy Scenes Edition

Welcome to the latest edition of the Stamp Review Crew's Blog Hop!  This time we are showing off the Happy Scenes stamp set.  For our hops Crew members always have their blogs linked so you can return at any time.  You can also see the complete blog roll on the our Stamp Review Crew Website.

Halloween Peeps are all rage.  They are cute on their own but even cuter when incorporated into a hand-stamped display.
This little ghosty sits on top of a box made with the Gift Box Punch Board.  He is a bit top heavy so I filled the box with Candy Corn.  (Just makes it even more yummy!)
 Here is a closer look at the box and tag.
For the tombstones I made a simple pocket and added the decorated label at the back.
Here are a few tips for re-creating these:
  • For the Peeps Ghost- For the box use a 6" X 6" inch piece of Designer Series Paper and follow the directions for the first box listed on the Gift Box Punch Board instructions.
  • Stamp the spider web, then fold the box on the scorelines.  Note where the tabs cross and use the 1/8" Hole Punch to make an opening for lollipop stick.  This took a little bit of trial and error at first.  
  • Candy Corn in the box gives it weight and helps the stick to remain upright.
  • The tag framelit is from the Curvy Keepsake Box Framelit set.  Stamp the Boo first,  add the Washi tape then run it through the Big Shot.  
  • Use the tip of our Paper Snips to make a small hole in the center of a Spider Web Doily before sliding it onto the lollipop stick.

  • For the Peeps Tombstones- Cut a piece of DSP 4" X 5-1/4".  On the 4" side, score at 5/8" and 1-1/4".  Fold on scorelines and use pieces of Washi Tape at the sides to form a pocket.
  • Stamp and color the image.  Glue sections of a Spider Web Doily at the sides.  Cut with largest Deco Label Framelit.  Adhere to the back of the pocket.
