Snow Day Christmas Card

This snowman from the stamp set Snow Day is so much fun to play with.
I love this card with the little snowman with arms reaching towards heaven and the snow falling down.
Stamped in Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie and Black StazOn ink on Whisper White card stock.
Added some sparkle with Dazzling Details.
Below is the greeting stamped on the inside of the card from the stamp set More Merry Messages.

MERRY Christmas Card

Okay, I just have to say that I really love how this card turned out!
Using the Expressions Thinlits Dies I cut the "Merry" out of  Red Glimmer Paper - gotta love that stuff!

The "Christmas" is from a stamp in the Joyful Christmas set - love how the script matches so well with the "Merry".  I used the Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to color only the word "Christmas" on the stamp which actually says "Joyful Christmas Wishes".
Other supplies used:
Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler card stock
Season of Style dsp stack
Modern Medley dsp
Crumb Cake ink
Stampin' Sponge
Very Vintage designer buttons
Linen Thread
Tea Lace Paper Doillies

Joyful Christmas Gift Tag

Here is another Christmas gift tag idea.
The flower is from the stamp set Joyful Christmas.  I stamped 2 images on Vellum card stock with VersaMark ink and heat set White Embossing powder. Cut out one complete flower and then just the center of the other one to layer.
The silver on the edges is done by running the Silver Metallic Encore Pad around the edges of the paper and covering with Clear embossing powder then heat setting.  It has a little different look than using Silver embossing powder but you could just do that instead. 

Other Supplies Used:
Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler card stock
Cherry Cobbler classic ink
Pretty Print embossing folder
Frosted Finishes Embellishments
Silver 1/8" ribbon
Apothecary Accents Framelits dies
Floral Frames Collection framelits dies
More Merry Message stamp set

Snow Day Gift Tags

I am having so much fun with the Snow Day stamp set and I wasn't even going to get it but glad I did. 

I stamped the snowman and snowflakes with Soft Sky classic ink on Whisper White card stock.
Then stamped is face, arms and buttons with Black StazOn ink.  The carrot nose was stamped with Pumpkin Pie.
I highlighted the snowman and snowflakes with the Dazzling Details to add a little sparkle.

The last one I stamped I decided to try adding the hat and I think he looks so cute and it goes well with the Basic Black Chevron Ribbon.
The "let it snow" is from the Best of Snow stamp set and punched out with the Label Bracket Punch.

Sweater Weather Candy Wrappers

I made these candy wrappers for Thanksgiving party favors using the Envelope Punch Board and a video on youtube by Dee Slater HERE .
I used up some of the last of my Sweater Weather designer series paper along with the Tags 4 You stamp set and the Label Bracket Punch.  The "happy Thanks giving" image is stamped in Chocolate Chip classic ink on Whisper White card stock. 

I did change the size from the one shown in the video to make smaller candy wrappers and also to get more out of a 12 x 12 sheet of paper.
I cut my paper at 6" x 5-1/2".
Score on the 5-1/2" side at 1-1/4", 2-1/2", 3-3/4", and 5".
punch on both ends at each fold 1-1/2" in on the 6" side.
Score the 6" side at 1", 1-1/2", 2", 4", 4-1/2" and 5".
Watch the video and these instructions should make sense.

The candy wrappers hold 3 mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups.

Christmas Gift Card with Envelope

This little gift card measures 2-1/2 x 3 and uses the stamp set Merry Little Christmas.
Cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 5" x 3" and fold in half.  Stamp image with Old Olive classic ink on the card front.  On a piece of Whisper White card stock stamp with Cherry Cobbler the word "little" from the stamp and cut out.  Adhere with a Stampin' Dimensional.  Tie a piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine around the card and you are done!
The envelope is made using the Envelope Punch Board and Vellum Card Stock.  I then ran the completed envelope through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry embossing folder.

Peace On Earth Christmas Card

I am really happy with how this card turned out.
It uses 3 stamp sets which are: Calm Christmas, World Map, and Post Card.
I stamped the World Map on Very Vanilla card stock with Sahara Sand ink, then stamped the Post Card stamp with Soft Suede.  The dove is stamped in Soft Suede after stamping off on a scrap of paper to get a softer look.  The greeting is stamped with Early Espresso ink and "Peace on Earth" was heat embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder.

For a little shine I added some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter with the 2-Way Glue Pen just where I wanted it - across the top of the post card and on the branch in the dove's beak.
The bow is made using the Very Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon - love that ribbon!

Masking Tape Technique Poinsettia

Have you tried the masking tape technique? 
I haven't done much but really love how this poinsettia from the Joyful Christmas stamp set turned out with this technique.
I actually used painter's tape along with Cherry Cobbler and Blushing Bride classic ink.
I cut a piece of tape a little longer than the width of the flower and inked it up sticky side on the ink pad then pressed it down on Very Vanilla card stock, pulled up and repeated, then switched colors for the two-toned look.  I did the Blushing Bride first then the Cherry Cobbler.
For the leaves I only did this with Old Olive ink.
After getting the ink on the paper I stamped the image with Black StazOn and then cut out.
I sponged all over the flower and leaves with Crumb Cake ink. 
Put some Pearl Basic Jewels in the center to finish it off.
Other supplies used:
More Merry Messages stamp set
Chalk Talk framelits dies
Cherry Cobbler 1" stitched edge grosgrain ribbon
Season of Style designer series paper
Modern Medley dsp
Crumb Cake card stock
