One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

SAF 2013 ~ Whipping up Scent-sational Cards


Still playing catch up with the SAF 2013 Stamp-a-faire.  In our package, we were given a really cute stamp set that will be available for purchase on the September 15 release.  It is all about scratch and sniff!! How fun is that?  The top card was stamped with the pumpkin and then embossed with a mixture of clear embossing powder and pumpkin pie spice from the kitchen pantry!  It is a ratio of 1 - 2 (one part spice or flavoring, 2 parts clear embossing powder)  you can use just about anything...just nothing with SUGAR as it may scorch and smell really bad when you use the heating tool to emboss.  The gingerbread man was embossed with a combination of cinnamon and ginger and then of course the clear embossing powder.

There are cherries in the stamp set and those I used a cherry flavored Kool-Aid packet...be sure it is sugar free (which probably most are and you add the sugar when you are making Kool-Aid for the kiddos).  I made a card and then it sold immediately and I neglected to get a picture of it, so I guess I will have to make another one because that one did smell pretty good!!
