GREETINGS FROM NATURE’S BEAUTY

Hi out there and welcome.  Today’s card features the Nature’s Beauty stamp set that’s on the last page of the Holiday Catalogue.

Stampin’ Up! does a feature stamp every year and this year, they are donating $4 of every sale of this set to Mental Health organizations.

This is a simply lovely set and I love this deer image so featured it to play along with The Paper Players colour challenge.

I must admit, it was a bit of a challenge to get the gold in there, but I think it looks great as the greeting.  To make it a little more effective, I added some branches in gold foil!

Here’s the list of products used.

MERCURY GLASS ACETATE MAKES GREAT GIFT TAGS

Since the package of Mercury Glass acetate was still on my crafting table – I went ahead and created some gift tags with it!

I cut backing(whisper white and seaside spray) for the acetate with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and then glued the acetate down with our SNAIL Adhesive.  It works great for this!  Then I cut out a few more snowflakes using both the Silver and Gold Glimmer paper.  The finishing touch is the greeting on each one stamped with the Silver and Gold Metallic ink pads.

Here’s the list of products used.  NOTE:  The Silver twine is from the November Paper Pumpkin kit.

ADD A LITTLE SPARKLE TO THE SEASON

It’s time to sparkle for the coming season and today’s card does just that!

When you have sparkle you also have a “small” problem with light reflection, lol.  However, this looks pretty good and shows off that Mercury Glass designer acetate well!

I added snowflakes created with the Frosted Frames dies along the side to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches layout for this week.

The beauty of having the greeting along the side as shown in the sketch, is that the recipient may just set the card on the horizontal when they receive it.

Here’s the product list for you.

A VERY MERRY SNOWMAN

OK, I went to my die-cutting machine to create this funny-looking snowman for today’s card.

I’m laughing as I post this because he looks a little smug.  I used the Layering Circles dies to create him and then added his face with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  And then added the holly leaves using the stamp set that was in the November Paper Pumpkin kit.  A snowman isn’t a snowman without a little snow, so I added the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.

I really wanted to play along with The Paper Players theme challenge this week so that’s why this snowman looks a little smug, lol!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

NEED SOME GIFT CARD HOLDERS?

Sometimes it’s difficult to choose just the right gift but these pretty gift card holders will help you deliver just the right choice.

They’re pretty and simple to create with just a little cutting, scoring and folding.

This is the open view.  Cut your cardstock to 4-1/4″ x 10-3/4″.  Score at 2″ and 6-1/2″.  You will need a slot to hold the gift card so I used the small oval tag die from the Detailed Bands dies.

Then decorate to your preference and Voilå your gift card holder is done!

Here’s the list of products used.

GARDEN LANE FOR A SIMPLE CHRISTMAS CARD

Yesterday, I posted a card that used the lovely Garden Lane designer paper and suggested that it would make a pretty Christmas card.  Today’s card is the result of using that paper!

You don’t need much to add a bit of glitz, just a few dies cuts and some Gold Foil!  The Frosted Frames dies has some great pieces so I cut out a few and gathered them together with a piece of twine from the Magnolia Lane ribbon combo pack.  Of course, adding a few Gold Metallic Pearls was a necessity for more glitz!

What layout to use?  Well,  The Paper Players of course, which also helps to show off that lovely designer paper.

Here’s the list of products used.

IDEAS FOR GIFT TAGS FOR YOU

I’ve been busy prepping for Gift Tag class this week and had a ton of fun creating these gift tags.

They involved using a combination of stamp sets but I’m pretty happy with the way they all turned out.  When you have several Christmas-themed stamp sets in your stash, you just have to make good use of them along with dies and punches to help in the creation!

Have a great Tuesday and Happy Stamping!

PEACEFUL BOUGHS MAKE A PRETTY CARD

Happy day to you and welcome!  Today’s card features the very pretty Peaceful Boughs bundle and a simple technique.

I used the Crumb Cake ink pad to stamp those pinecones and then over-stamped them with the Celestial Copper Delicata metallic ink.  I think that it gives them a nice subtle sheen.

In my mind, you can’t add pinecones without a few red berries, so out came the Flourish dies for that.

The technique I used was the colour the White Baker’s Twine with the Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend.  The colour goes on so smoothly and there’s no waiting for it to dry.  Perfect!

Here’s the list of products used.
