Hello Stamping Friends. I’m trying to get back on schedule now.
My little dog Aspen was very very sick and admitted to critical care in the specialist Animal Hospital. After two visits to my regular vet I had to take him there to the ER and they admitted him to the hospital. He was there for 4 days and I brought him home for one night and then he had new issues and I took him back to the ER and he stayed for 11 more days. He was one sick doggie.
But he finally turned the corner and I was able to get him last Friday – which happened to by my Fall retreat weekend. I brought him back to the cabin and took care of him there along with all the ladies that attended the retreat. They were a great help to me and loved on him. Now we have been home for a few days and he continues to improve.
So now I’m trying to finish sharing all these cute projects with the Trick or Tweet stamp set. I will try to pick up where I left off.
Today’s project is one of our Mini Pizza Boxes. Inside I found snacks cakes that are little pumpkin shaped cakes – I’m pretty sure they are pumpkin pie flavored. I’m not a pumpkin fan so I didn’t eat one. But any round fairly flat treat will fit in these food safe boxes.
To color the box I used my Sponge Brayer – I used two colors – Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody. I wanted kind of an ombre effect so I used the Pumpkin Pie in the center section where the box folds and used the Mango Melody on either end. Just roll over with the sponge brayer until you achieve the darkness you desire. I did spray the box with plain hairspray – that’s what we used as a sealer in the old days and I still had a can in my craft closet. Then decorate the box!
