Good day and I’m sharing the Mini Pizza Box with a bright gift tag for today’s project.

There was a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock on my table to it went into the Big Shot with the Layering Circles dies.  I didn’t stop there though, the Seasonal Layers and Card Front Builder dies were also calling, so we have snowflakes and a tree to add to this tag.

The greeting comes from the Seasonal Bells stamp set and I coloured it direct to stamp with a Real Red and Garden Green marker before it was cut out with Paper Snips.

All of this was put together using our Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The band for the Mini Pizza Box was cut to 1″ x 10″ and folded around the pizza box.  I attached the ends of the band using a small piece of our Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I plan on putting a gift card inside this box, but you could add some candy as the box is Food Safe!

Here’s the full list of everything that I used.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!


Welcome to you.  Today’s card is stepping away from Christmas and going towards a Thank You card.  We do need to consider sending thanks to those who do lovely things for us, after all!

The Daisy Delight Bundle stepped up to the plate for this cheery and colourful card as well as a piece of designer paper from the Naturally Eclectic package.

I also followed along with the Create with Connie & Mary sketch and really, really like the way everything fell into place.  Especially the stem from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies!  These dies are great for every season and just about every theme!

I played with some copper embossing powder for this card to send a shimmery Christmas greeting.

The layout came courtesy of Freshly Made Sketches and the Christmas Happiness and Seasonal Bells stamp sets.

I threw a couple of ideas around before settling on a Christmas card and am quite happy with the results.

Today’s card gives you a touch of silver with these lovely snowflakes!

CAS(E) this sketch posted a good one for this week and I really had to think about the layout of my project.  Here’s their sketch so you can see why I did my card this way.

Starting with the Year of Cheer Specialty designer paper gave me the great idea to add those silver snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies.  Then, it was easy to add the sentiment from Star of Light heat embossed in silver to finish things off!

I’ve always tended toward silver as part of my Christmas decorating but have a friend that really likes gold.  Which is your favourite?

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.

Happy Stamping!


Well, we got more snow and some very chilly temperatures over the weekend which helped to inspire me to create this white on white Christmas card.

This is a 4-1/4″ square card which fits in for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge as well as The Paper Players white on white challenge.

Here’s the sketch that I followed for Freshly Made sketches.

I pulled out the older but beautiful Flurry of Wishes stamp set and had some heat embossing fun with those beautiful snowflake images.
