Stampin' Addicts Occasions Catalog Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Occasions Catalog Blog Hop featuring new stamp sets and products that are available to order now through May 31 of this year.  There are 6 stops on the hop and if you have been following the hop in order you have just arrived from Tanya's Blog where she featured the new stamp set Sealed With Love  Loved her ideas and can not wait to play with that set!
The stamp set I chose to feature is called Yummy In My Tummy.  I thought it was a very cute set and had some possibilities of some different techniques I wanted to showcase.
Here is what I came up with.
My first project, a card using the our new watercolor pencils and aqua painter to color the monster after stamping the image in Archival Black.  He looked like he needed to be holding something, so a quick look through the Sale-a-bration Brochure to find the Any Occasion stamp set and used the Happy Birthday and Banner string from it. 
The card base is Bermuda Bay with some of the Bermuda Bay DSP as an added touch.
 Loved how it turned out.
My second project, another card.  This time using the other fun little monster and our Cucumber Crush Stampin' Write Marker, Cardstock, DSP and twine.  I stamped the word Hugs in Archival Black Ink and die cut with our Heart thinlites.  I added little hearts punched out using our Heart Boarder Punch.
My last project was what I wanted to do all along with this set, make a fun little monster candy box.  For the polka dot monster, I stamped him with Archival Black Ink on some of our new Valentine DSP stack and cut him out.  I then cut and scored some of our Thick White cardstock to form a box, then stamped another monster image on what would be the front of the box.  I cut out his tummy using our scalloped circle dies on both DSP and the white box front, adhered the dsp monster on the stamped image on the white box.  I cut a piece of our Window Sheet to fit inside the front of the box and adhered it.  I then filled it with Hershey Kisses.  I then decided I wanted to use the Yummy in my Tummy stamp to kinda fill in some of the window.  I stamped it on white and cut it out with our circle dies and then a little bigger scallop circle in red to put behind it.  Added a few more little red hearts from the Heart Border Punch.  I did use some of our retired red cotton ribbon to tie on the top to finish it off.
Here is a side view of the box.  The first group shot shows the box before I added the little saying.  I hope I have given you some ideas of how you can use this set.  Now it's time to hop on over to Mickie's Blog and see the crafty things she has come up with using the new stamp set That's The Tag.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good day!

These monsters are so cute, and I'm glad you chose this one - I need to make a project for the downline meeting. Love how the monster can hold the banner sentiment - very clever!
