Anything But a Card Somethings!

Happy Friday All!

There's a great new challenge posted on STAMP SOMETHING this morning. It's a very different challenge than what we usually do too. Our very own design team member Melissa created a fabulous "red, white, and blue anything but a card" challenge in honor of the 4th of July!

I will admit this was a tough challenge for me, I always make cards so I had to really think hard about what to make. I decided to raid my stamp closet and this is what I came up with. It's a metal bucket which has been stamped with white Staz-On ink, then ribbon was wrapped around and I hole punched with the Cropadile to thread ribbon through and then finally added a sticky cut star with glitter.

Inside there are wrapped nugget candies and star lollipops. The stars are just paper that I punched with my star punch. The large star is a piece of chipboard cover in DSP. There you have it, a cute little table centerpiece for your holiday BBQ!

Thanks for looking! Hop on over and check out the samples made by the design team and then go on and stamp something, but remember it must be red, white, and blue and no cards allowed! :) Happy Stamping!

Oh and remember too, you have until midnight ET tonight to enter into my blog candy chance, details are in a couple posts below. :)
