Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Kids!

Welcome to the 12th Edition of the
Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects from stampers from around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

This month our theme is KIDS! The goal is to share paper crafts relevant to children...this could be a card for a kid, a 3D project for a kid, whatever we felt moved to's a pretty broad theme. My kids are already out of college, so it took me a while to get in the right mind set...

My project features an "older" stamp set called Marquee Messages, with "older" meaning it's not new to the 2017-18 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog that debuted in June. However, I did use some Glossy White Card Stock that is "new" to that catalog, although it's a product that is returning after several years of being discontinued.

The card has a 1/4" spine to allow for the bulk of the candy inside. I bought the candy packet first, and then used the packet colors for the card. The candy is just stuck inside the card with a couple of  Mini Glue Dots.

Stampin' Supplies: Marquee Messages stamp set, Basic Black Archival ink pad, Glossy White card stock, Tempting Turquoise card stock & marker, Emerald Envy card stock, Daffodil Delight card stock, Clear Wink of Stella, Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots. Paper Snips for that fussy cutting!

What a fun project! Your colours match so perfectly to the Pop Rocks! I used an "old" set too! It's good to look back and reinvent things!
