Stampin' Up Design Day

Welcome to another Stampin' Up Design Day.  For my Stampin' Up design project I made some candy sticks to use for Thanksgiving.  I haven't decided if I will have the candy sticks in a glass like the first picture or in a napkin ring as shown below.  Please let me know your thoughts in a comment.
I  didn't realize Stampin' Up carried these 1"x8" clear bags to make the candy sticks.  They are very inexpensive and make such great treats.  I filled the bags with Reese's Pieces to stay with the Fall color theme.
I used the Thanksgiving cartridge to cut out out the turkey and the place card.  I added the turkey with pop dots to the scalloped circle which was cut from the Sentimentals cartridge.  The patterned paper for the scalloped circle and the place card is Stampin' Up Spice Cake, this paper is so pretty and adds to the Fall theme.
The "Thank You" sentiment is from the Perfectly Penned Stampin' Up stamp set which was stamped with the espresso Stampin' Up stamp pad.  I also inked the edges of the top layer of the place card with the espresso ink.
I embellished the place card and the the candy topper with some twine and added a little bit of doodling to the turkey with my white gel pen.
If you would like some of these clear bags to make candy sticks for the upcoming holidays or other Stampin' Up products, please contact Wendy Cranford at her Stampin' Up website.  You can also visit her Stampin' Up blog, here.  Please check back often for workshops, giveaways and special promotions.  Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Soooo pretty! I love the beautiful shape of your thank you card! Thanks for joining the fun at My Craft Spot!


  4. These look so great! I think you could do some in a glass on the table for decoration and then one at each place setting! AND I must say I am STEALING the idea for Thanksgiving ;-) My in laws always have a large crowd and this will be fun to have setting around for everyone.... Love that you did the reeses pieces to keep the color scheme.
