Here’s another project idea — a quick and simple one. A great feature of 2-step stamp sets is that they make for quick projects. These sets are an outline stamp and a background stamp image all in one set. The coloring is done for you with the 2nd stamp!
And I don’t know about you, but I definitely think CHOCOLATE is a “reason to smile”
The quick tag on this project was finished by adding the Happy Birthday greeting from Bring On The Cake (see it online).
Looking for other projects with candy?? I LOVE using candy with my stamping treats! Here are a ton of ideas on my blog.
I love my Scallop Square Die (see it online - 115950). It’s one of my most-used Big Shot dies (see what I mean?). Last week I posted a project using the Reason to Smile stamp set, and I wanted to share a Video Tutorial on how to make the sweet lollipop treat.

Just grab your favorite color card stock and coordinating Designer Series Paper, and you’re all set! Love the paper in the background on my photos? It’s from the Patio Party Designer Series Paper (see it online – 126916) and I love it, too!
Here’s the Video Tutorial:

My kids love Scooby-Doo cartoons, so I often get to see those 14-layer sandwiches that Scooby and Shaggy like to make. Somehow the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch reminds me of a Scooby sandwich: lots of cool layers, and you can’t resist them!
The new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (see it online) is part of the Summer Mini Catalog that debuted on May 1st. If you don’t have a paper copy of your own, be sure to ask your demonstrator for a copy. Or if you need a demonstrator, let me know and I can mail you a copy. (or click here to download it now as a pdf)
Like I said, it’s hard to resist this punch. So when my sister-in-law visited this past weekend and saw the Flower Bonnet project, we decided to make a stack for her church’s Mother’s Day Brunch. And of course we used the new Triple Layer Blossom Bouquet Punch!
For full directions on the hat box (you can put candy inside!), check out my post from last month.
If you haven’t tried these punches yet, here’s how they work. The little lever at the end slides from left to right and you set it depending on which kind of punched shape you want. In the US these are $23.95, which means they’re a great value–so many pieces and so many possibilities! Plus they take up less space in your crafting toolbox than storing or carrying 3 separate punches.
The layers can be used together or separately, and they’re great to use as mats for each other. Pop a brad in the center, and you’re done! I know you’re going to love these punches. You’ll want to be sure to check out the Triple Layer Doily Punch, too (see it online).
