"Popcorn, Get Your Popcorn Here"


I was trying to think of what to make for the teachers for a end of school gift. I came up with a few cool things. This is the card that is going to go with the gift set. I can't wait to show you the whole thing. I haven't used this stamp set in forever, I actually had to dust it off. My bad. Anyway, I stamped the popcorn in the bag and some that spilled over, covered them with liquid applique and heated them up and they poofed! I went over them with the summer sun marker to give them that yellow/white popcorn color. They turned out super cute. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up all the pieces of popcorn cause I am no good at lining things up. If you haevn't tried liquid applique it is so fun. I like to use it for popcorn and snow. It just adds the perfect touch to your projects.
Stamps: Treat Yourself
Paper: Real Red, Summer Sun, Basic Black, Whisper White

This is very cute. I have made a card almost exactly like it before. It is soooo cute. I like this set a lot. I have never used the gumball machine for anything though. I unmounted it and that help with the popcorn alignment, especially if it is trimmed closely.

Have a great day!
