Winter Owls

Owls are always so cool, I love to hear them in our yard and know they are doing their work keeping the pests down. And I’ve actually got a classmate that shares her owl cam with us on face book for an inside look at their day which has been a lot of fun to see too.

Today’s cards use the Winter Owls Stamp Set (162153) which is part of a money saving bundle.

This set has some wonderful sentiments and images to create with. Check out this first book binding card that is a fun fold. It that uses the Winter Owls Dies (162156) to cut out the owl.

The detailed wings portion has been cut from our More Dazzle Specialty Paper (161749) giving it an impressive look. The background has been stamped monochromatically with the Fragrant Forest Background Stamp (162108) and a bit more sparkle has been added with the Night of Navy & Gold Glittered Ribbon (162011). And how about this next one that uses simple stamping?

The Oxidized Copper Specialty Designer Series Paper (162190) adds a bit of shine and pulls out the Copper Clay of the owl. The White 1/2″ Iridescent Ribbon (161955) has been colored with the Copper Clay Stampin’ Blend (161662) to give a totally different look that pulls out the copper foiling and Pretty Peacock coloring. White ribbons are great as they give you the ability to customize the coloring with a few swishes across your ink pad or with our Blends.

And if you are a Harry Potter fan, this set might be just up your alley. Hedwig was the first thing I thought of when I saw this set. AND have you seen the cute little Harry Potter Hershey’s Kisses? I’ve got to look for those at my local stores as my daughter will love them! Wouldn’t they be perfect to create a fun little Hedwig packaging option for your Harry Potter treat giving too this fall?

Beautiful Autumn Tiny Treat Box & More Team fun!

Yesterday I shared the Home Decor project that we made at the Peak Princess event this past weekend, today I thought I’d share the little treat item that I made.

They are filled with these fun fall Hershey’s Kisses that I found locally.

I just love the colors of the candy – yes, I do shop for candy that way. (My daughter thinks this is a pretty crazy way to shop for chocolate, but she is always on the hunt for me too!)

These treats were quick and easy to make for everyone. I have whipped up a quick video so you can make some to if you’d like.

I also mentioned I’d share some more photos so here are a couple from the classroom.

This last picture is of the Sweet Potato Crostini I made for the event. The marshmallows spent a bit too much time under the broiler I’m afraid. Don’t you hate that? But they were still quite tasty.

They were a big hit with my guys so I thought you might enjoy the recipe – they are light, tasty and easy to do.

Sweet Potato Crostini

2 T. sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

24 slices 1/4″ thick French bread baguette

2 to 3 T butter, melted


2 c. mashed sweet potatoes

1/4 c. chopped pecans

3 T. packed brown sugar

2 T. butter, melted

1 1/4 c. miniature marshmallows, halved

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar and cinnamon. Arrange bread sliced ona baking sheet. Brush with butter; sprinkle with sugar mixture. Bake until lightly browned, 5-7 minutes. Remove from oven; preheat broiler.

Mix sweet potatoes, pecans, brown sugar, and butter; spread over toasts. Top with marshmallows, pressing lightly. Broil 3-4 inches from heat until marshmallows are lightly toasted, 1-2 minutes.

So easy and tasty too!
