HSS #103 and a new Video!

It's Tuesday, so it must be Hand Stamped Sentiments Day! Whoo Hoo!
This week's challenge:


Get crafty making ANYTHING but a Card this week, and to put an added twist on the challenge create something that would be a great gift item.

I pinned this cute little guy on Pinterest a while back and couldn't wait to give it a try using SU's new Framelit Label Dies!


This pouch was made by running the DSF through the Big Shot using the new Framelit Label Dies. Did you know they cut FABRIC? Yep, they do!

I made a video, but, as you know, I am a video newbie. This video is long... I don't like long videos! So, lesson learned- talk faster and quit babbling! So, feel free to fast forward your way through it! :-)




Inside the pouch is a 3"X5" bag filled with strawberry cheesecake bark that I made from scratch bought at the grocery store.  (C'mon... I'm not Pioneer Woman everyday! Some times a girl has to fake it a little alright!)
The picture doesn't show it well, but the center fabric is red (Cherry Cobbler)  and white. It's beautiful! And, sewing around this tiny label is tricky. This step could be skipped with out much effect!

 Another Vintage Heart charm? Yes,  please! Oh, and torn ribbon? Sure! ;-)
 So, don't have any fabric or feel like the sewing machine ain't your thing? No problem!

Same project, different material- Paper!
 This paper is from the Sweet Shop DSP stack and the cherry stamp is from Mouthwatering.
I punched 2 Poppy Parade circles with the 1" circle punch. I added a little shine with the white Unibal pen and added them with dimensionals.

Sewn up the sides, but Sticky strip would work too!

So, wanna give it a try?? I'd LOVE to see what you make!
Don't forget, anything other than a card qualifies for our challenge this week! Make sure you link back to us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

Have a great week!
