Animal Crackers!

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Hey guys!  My blogging has been a bit erratic lately.  I'm over the stomach bug I had, but it's taking a little time to get my energy and mojo back.  Plus, we have a big weekend coming up and then we are going on a mini vacation the end of next week.  There are a lot of things to plan and I've been busy.

I thought I would share a project with you today that I created using Clear & Simple Stamps.  A few weeks ago I received a sample of Crystal Lite in the mail that came in a cute cardboard cylinder.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to fill it with something fun alter the outside.  The tube came in two parts, the top a bit larger than the bottom so that they slide together.
I used  Circus Fun to create the borders and then used Alpha Blocks II to spell out 'Animal Crackers'.  The solid images are stamped in red and then are accented in blue.  It was easier than I thought to space them evenly and straight.  I simply made a straight line with my ruler and then made a little mark in pencil every inch and a half.  I stamped right where I made the pencil mark.  The label was made using a scalloped rectangle nestablities die.  I used a circle punch for the balls.  I really like this color combination for a circus themed project.  It just screams FUN.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
