Festive Flower Builder Punch

Thought it was about time I used the Festive Flower Builder Punch.
I made these three cards all with the Reason for the Season stamp set with the "Jesus is the Reason for the Season" stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock with VersaMark ink for the background paper.

The flower on this first card is made with paper from the Home for Christmas designer series paper.

Here the flower is made with vellum from the Winter Wonderland designer series vellum stack.  I sponged Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow ink onto the back of the paper to add color.

Here I used the Merry Moments designer series paper stack to create the plaid flower for this card.

Home for Christmas

These projects are from a class I did last month featuring the Home for Christmas designer series paper found on page 9 of the Holiday Catalog.

I love these little houses and adding Dazzling Detail glitter glue to the roofs really makes them.
Here I added a little stamping with the Cozy Christmas stamp set.

Using various sizes of circle punches and a couple sizes of the circles collection framelits I cut out several circles of the Home for Christmas paper.  Some of the circles were used on the card above and the left overs were used on the larger tag below.

The larger tag is made with the Curvy Corner Trio punch and Project Life Corner punch. The two smaller ones feature the Scallop Tag Topper punch.

The Square Pillow Box thinlits dies is found on page 41 of the Holiday catalog and it can be purchased in a bundle with the stamp set A Little Something.
I am having fun trying to use up all my Home for Christmas designer series paper....now if I would only stop buying more!

Merry Everything Matchbook Treats

Trying to use up the last of my Happy Haunting designer series paper and made these cute little matchbook style treat holders.
For the tags I used the Merry Everything stamp set and coordinating Note Tag Punch.

I made these to specifically fit the snack size Hershey bars.
cut a piece of dsp 2" x 7-1/2" and score at 4" and 4-1/4".
for the flap cut a piece of dsp 2" x 2" and score at 1/2".
Fold on score lines.
Add adhesive onto the 1/2" side of the flap piece and attach to the back of the 4" end of the long piece.

Then fold flap over and insert candy bar (sealed edge) and hold tag in place and staple all together.

Then fold over the front and tuck under tag and flap.

Here you can see a side view and a back view of the matchbook.
