HAVE YOU STARTED YOUR CHRISTMAS BAKING YET?

Is Christmas baking a big deal in your home?  I find that I’ve backed off a little on that but I did do some “baking” on paper!  Let me show you.

Here we have some gingerbread people all lined up in a row, lol!  I scattered a few pearls around in hopes that it would look like I spilled a little icing, lol.  The Paper Players gave me the inspiration for this idea with their Christmas Baking theme for this week.  Now, I do think it’s time to get serious about some baking with some flour and butter etc!

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.  Just so you know, the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper is in the Year-End sale and is going away very soon.

Happy Stamping.

MERRY LITTLE TREAT BOXES

Have you started creating your gift tags and treat boxes yet?  I’m excited to host a class tonight where we will be creating 10 gift tags with a few tiny gift boxes using the Merry Little Labels stamp set.  Here’s a couple of them.

Aren’t they cute?!  I filled the Clear Tiny Treat box with M & M’s but you could add anything you want.  Creating Gift Tags is a great way to use up all of those scraps of designer paper that you have left.

Here’s the list of products that I used to give you an idea of what you will need to create your own.

REINDEER GAMES

Have you noticed the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set that’s on page 116 of the Annual Catalogue?  I haven’t used it for quite a while so pulled it out to add this cute Reindeer to today’s card!

 I started with a card base of Real Red embossed with the Holly Embossing Folder and went from there so I could play along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This stamp set has a matching Punch to make it easier to cut out all of the cute images in the set.

IT’S TIME TO CREATE THOSE GIFT TAGS

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.

A COPPER CHRISTMAS

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.

A SILVER CHRISTMAS JUST FOR YOU

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.

WHITE ON WHITE WONDER

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.
