I am over run with Christmas Cards, do you want some!!

As I was trying to make space for the numerous toys my kids received for Christmas, I discovered a box under the bed full of Christmas cards.  These have either been stamped by me or received in swaps over the past few years.  Some are full cards and some are card fronts that can be turned into full cards by adding a base.  Would you like to buy some!!  Maybe you can get a jump start on next years cards!!!

Here are the two groups (click on the images to see them larger).  There are over 250 cards in these two piles.

Group1 

Group2 

I am selling them in groups of 15 for $15 (including the shipping) or a group of 10 free with a $75 order.  You will receive a mix of cards and card fronts.

Big Shot onesies for my niece

Have I ever told you how much I LOVE MY BIG SHOT!!!  Well, in case I haven't

I LOVE MY BIG SHOT!!!!

My SIL mentioned that my niece could use some long-sleeved onesies for Christmas so I went to Walmart (pretty much the only store we have here!!) to find some.  I had a basic plan in my mind that I wanted to use my Big Shot to decorate them but didn't know exactly how I was going to do it.  I found some plain onesies for only $3.50 each and bought two, one pink and one white.  Yesterday, I thought that I had better get them done!!

Here is the pink one:

Sabrashirt  

I used the Flower Layers W/Leaf Bigz die and some different colors of felt.  I cut my felt into squares and ironed on some Wonder Under.  I ran the felt piece through my Big Shot, peeled off the paper backing and ironed it onto the shirt.  I used a Pretty in Pink Button for the middle of the flower.  Here is a close up of the flower.

Sabrashirtclose 

Here is the white one

Sabrashirtsnowflake 

I used the Snowflake #2 Originals die for this one and some light blue felt.  The Designer button in the middle looks so cute.  I applied the Wonder Under the same way and ironed the felt onto the fabric.  Here is a close up of the snowflake.

Sabrashirtsnowflakeclose 

At the start of this project, I found a plain oatmeal colored shirt in my craft box that I bought for my DD this past summer (of course, I forgot that I had it!!).  I decided to add one more little Chirstmas gift to her collection and I will show you that shirt tomorrow.

If you would like to see a few more things I have done with felt and my Big Shot see my older posts HERE and HERE

Off to do some more baking!!!

Last Minute Gifts and the Love You Much Bundle

I bought these candles at Walmart a few weeks ago and thought I had better do something with them.  I had some rubons laying on my desk and added them to the jars.  The yummy Alpine ribbon adds the finishing touch.

Candlesrubons 

These will make the perfect little "adder" gifts for some of the people on my list.

TIP - when applying rubons to glass, be sure the glass is free from dirt, dust and fingerprints.

Have a productive day!!!!

Top Note Gift Card Holder

Here is a Gift Card Holder made using the Stampin' Up! exclusive Top Note die.  I ran my Frosty Day DSP and 1 1/2 sheets of Bashful Blue through my Big Shot using the Top Note die.  I used SNAIL to attach the DSP to the full Bashful Blue Top Note and used my Crop-A-Dile to set a Jumbo Eyelet.  The letters were cut from Chocolate Chip Textured card stock with the Serif Essentials Alphabet Set.  Chocolate Chip Grosgrain creates the tree hanger.

Giftcardholdertopnotetonotejoyfront 

I cut my other Bashful Blue Top Note in half and attached it to the back with Sticky Strip. so it could hold my Gift Card.

Gum Drop Trees

Aren't these just the coolest things!!! 

Gumdroptree3 

Andrea came up with this idea and I had to copy it!!  You take a bamboo skewer (I cut mine down to fit in a small cello bag) and poke it through various gum drops and wrap the cello bag around it.  The paper tree is 9 folded circles in three sizes and there are two small stars covered with glitter back to back at the top.

Here is a close up of one

What's in your (stamp) closet?

Here is what I found in mine!!  Those plastic paper dividers that go in the paper holders on page 195.  I had accidentally ordered these about a year ago and had them stashed in my cupboard.  I found them yesterday while I was Spring, I mean Winter cleaning. :-)  I looked at them, first wondering what the heck they were and then I remembered.  Well, it just so happens that they are the perfect thickness for the Big Shot. {grin}

Plastic 

Here are some things I whipped up today!!

Plasticsnowflakewglitter 

Snowflake covered with glitter!!  The sparkle is very hard to capture.

Plasticornamentscallop 

Ornament - I stamped snowflakes on the plastic with White Stazon and used my Coluzzle to make a large Bashful Blue circle.  The snowman is punched out using the 1 3/8 circle punch.
