HSS Fall Theme Challenge #84 & Sneak Peek!!!

Good Morning Stampers!!!  I am SO waiting for cooler weather and fall like scenes outside to start taking place… but I fear that I will have to wait a while.  But we have almost the next bets thing a FALL THEME CHALLENGE from Hand Stamped Sentiments. :-)
I think of gifts to neighbors and teachers so in that spirit I decided to make a gift item for this weeks challenge.  I think some pumpkin spice cookies would go perfectly in this festive and adorable gift bag.
You should definitely head over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to not only play along with us with this weeks challenge but to also check out our NEW look, we have been doing some updating- we are excited to share.  Join us for this weeks HSS Fall Theme Challenge.
Check out this little fella, isn’t he so adorable!!!  I have him on another project for my HOLIDAY STAMP CAMP event (get more details HERE) and I just had to make him again… I have to think of a FUN name for this guy!  He is super cute and I can’t wait to share with you how he’s made- but you would have to come to the camp to get those instructions.

I thought a fun and heartfelt tag would be perfect for this gift.  I used VersaMark ink first for the wreath then I colored in the empty leaves with Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I used my Cherry Cobbler ink for the main sentiment stamped on a piece of Vellum paper.  I love how you can faintly see the wreath through the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out this weeks project for this fantastic Fall Theme Challenge.  I hope you pop on over to HSS and play along this week.  Stay tuned this week to see some videos and sneak peeks for the Holiday Stamp Camp coming up October 1st.  until then~
