I had so much fun with my Mystery Hostess Club on Sunday.  I thought I would show you the three fabulous projects that we made.

First up the card that set the stage for the other two projects.  We learned the Faux Silk technique which is really easy and a lot of fun.

I used the samples in the October Stampin' Success (a demo only mag from SU! another great reason to become a demo!) as my inspiration, as well as a card from JosannaP that I saw on SCS.  The colors are Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango.  The stamp set we used is called Falling Leaves. The panel is embossed using the Weave Texturz Plates.  I used the Hemp Twine as embellishment, because I think it looks rustic and fall-ish.

Here's the matching candle:

We used the Bright Blessings Jumbo wheel and the Falling Leaves stamp set for this project.  I picked up the pillar candles from our local Dollar Tree Store.  The wrap is made using Crushed Curry cardstock.

The final project is a little box using the Matchbox die:

The box is made with Chocolate Chip Textured cardstock.  The tag is punched with the Curly Label Punch.  The sentiment is from the Falling Leaves set.  See the little Mini Library Clip?  Isn't it cute?!  Don't forget to get them on sale this week!  The ribbon is our Polka Dot Grosgrain in Crushed Curry.  I think this would make an adorable place card for Thanksgiving.  You could replace the Grateful sentiment with each name of your guest.  The best part is that it fits four Hershey's Nuggets inside.  And who doesn't need a little chocolate after eating all that fowl?!

Falling Leaves  #115368  $21.95

Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel  #115626  $8.50

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

I didn't know the matchbox die held nugget bars! Another reason to purchase that die. :)
