Cinnamon Stick Scratch and Sniff Tutorial

I CASE'd this cute Cinnamon Stick Holder from
and this is one of the projects we made at Stamp Club last night. It looks exactly like Allison's except we embossed the pumpkin to make it smell like pumpkin cinnamon spice. This technique is really fun to do. I stamped the Paisley Prints pumpkin image with Cajun Craze Classic Ink. Craft ink is traditionally used for embossing, but if you use classic ink and heat emboss right away it will work. I made a mixture of about half of the jar of Clear Embossing Powder mixed with about 1/2 TBS Pampered Chef Cinnamon Spice Blend and ground cloves. After stamping your image, pour the scratch and sniff embossing powder mixture onto your stamped image and heat. Smells good! The cinnamon stick holder is made by cutting out a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the Scallop Square Bigz Clear die. Wheel the edges with Paisley Party in Cajun Craze. Next paper pierce a square of Cajun Craze cardstock along the edges and layer over the scallp square. The pumkin is set on dimentionals onto a Daffodil Delight scallop. I used a crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the top corners and tied with Linen Thread. The bow (3/8" Twill Tape) is stuck on with a glue dot. The sprout is made with a little piece of Pear Pizzaz which I wrapped around a paper piercer to curl then attached with a glue dot.

Next is another variation of the Cinnamon Stick Holder made for my hostess's dogs, Penny and Dolly who love stamping with us. The paw print is from the stamp set D is for Dog. Instead of cinnamon sticks I filled it with dog chew sticks.
