Happy Fall Y'all - Stamped candle

Hello everyone. Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far. :)
This week the Joy's Life DT was asked to create a project using the colors Orange, Green and Brown.  For some reason, I was struggling a bit trying to make something using only these colors.  I must have started at least 5 different projects before settling on the one I am sharing today.  It is actually quite simple, but I think it turned out pretty cute! 
I used the stamping on tissue paper technique to apply the Happy Fall Y'all sentiment.
Here is a close up:

Supplies used:
Acorn and leaves: Cricut Create a Critter
Cuttlebug Mesh embossing folder
Sentiment: Joy's Life Happy Fall Y'all stamp set
Face stamps: Peachy Keen Faces Wide Eyed Kids (Acorn) and The Cornies (Leaves)
Ink: Stampin Up Basic Black and Chocolate Chip
Misc: Twine from The Twinery, hemp twine from stash, white gel pen

The cornfield base is from the SVGCuts file "Acorn Autumn" but I changed it up and added the corn and crow that I purchased from the Silhouette Store.
Isn't it cute??
It's filled with some yummy candy corn too!
I put the cute corn guy on an Action Wobble for a little wobbly fun:
Here is the cute Joy's Life stamp I used:

Happy Fall Home Decor - Joy's Life DT post

Hello my crafty friends!  Today I am sharing my project for my post over at the Joy's Life DT Blog.  After having a week off, the DT is going full force with a super fun week of Fall Home Decor projects.
  I totally fell in LOVE with this basket when I saw it on and couldn't wait to make one of my own. 

I once again pulled out one of my favorite stamp sets, Everyday Occasions, to create the sentiment.  It is just so easy to create the perfect sentiment using this set. :)

I really love how this basket turned out.  How fun would it be to make one for other seasons or holidays??  I think there is a lot of possibilities with this!

Basket: SVG file
Paper: Core'dinations Nostalgia Asst.
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Distressed Stripes
Buttons and brads: Stampin Up
Ink: Stampin Up Chocolate Chip
