{ Impression Obsession DT challenge–Shades of Fall }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Shades of Fall!

Our challenge starts today, October 16, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, October 22, at 10 PM.

Create a new project using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between October 16-22. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

This time I did not make a card. I was looking on Pinterest for a teacher gift idea and I came across these little mini coffee cups. Looks like they were really popular last year in the Stampin’ Up world, but I totally missed them. I fell in love and had to get some and make cute little gifts.

I stamped my white cardstock with Cover-a-card Broken Chainlink and added Cover-a-Card Wood Grain with some color shine. Then I added a strip of patterned paper at the top. There might be a pattern out there, but I just traced my cup on a piece of paper to make the template. I will transfer it into my silhouette so I can cut it in the future.

I used a leaf from Hydrangea Set Die to cut two leaves, one from a scrap piece of fabric and another one from vellum. I broke one of my Sizzix Big Shot plates while I was in the process of embossing the leaf. I made the wrong sandwich. It was time anyway. I hade them for ever and they were looking pretty bad. Amazon has them on sale right now Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Standard, 1 Pair ($6.59).
I used Circle Greeting Cutout set for the tag. I punched the scalloped circle first and then taped the die to the middle and die cut the saying. I backed it with brown cardstock.
I stamped the Striped Banner several times and tucked them behind the tag with the leaves.

I pretty much did the same thing with the tag that I cut out from the rest of the stamped cardstock. I added a little doily on the bottom. You could add a little note to this with the gift.

What is inside you ask? Some very delicious chocolate I found. Caramel Brownie. Four of them fit perfectly. Just enough for a little treat. These little cups can be filled with whatever you want and they are perfect for any occasion.
