Cherry Thanks


     Did you every buy something only to have it sit around for months until you unbury it and ask yourself, “why did I ever buy that?”  I’m sure I am not the only one!  Fess up…we all have those crafty impulse buys.  Well, the Cherry Scented Embossing Powder found in the Occasions Mini Catalog was my latest impulse buy.  I didn’t know what to use it on.  I have no stamp sets with cherries (however Stampin’ Up! does carry several).  So, it sat…untouched…until I came across this card on Mary Fish’s blog, Stampin’ Pretty.  Of course, I put my own spin on it…remember, I own no cherry stamps. 

     Here is what I did…

     I used the new Cherry Scented Embossing Powder to heat emboss a scrap piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Let me just say, it really does smell like cherries.  It holds its scent for about two weeks.  So, if you are going to send it off, send it straight away so the recipient gets the full smell :)  I used my 1” Circle punch to make the “cherries”.  The “stems” are simply two small pieces of Hemp Twine that I knotted together at one end.  The leaf is a petal that I snipped off a 5-Petal Flower punch out.  Really cute cherries and they smell good too!  :)  

     This whole project was so cute, simple and sweet smelling that I decided to use it as a make-n-take.  I just had to share this scented embossing powder with everyone and everyone loved it!  I hope you enjoyed it too.  I encourage you to give one of the new Scented Embossing Powders a try.  It comes in Cherry, Melon and Vanilla.
