Best of Snow - Frosty!

Frosty is back!!! With the Best of Snow set, you get a mini Frosty image. He is so adorable!!  I also used the snowflake image in this set for my background stamping.

Bestofsnow_snowman

I stamped Frosty in Jet Black StazOn and colored him in with my Stampin' Write Markers (see list below).  I punched him out with the 1-3/4 Circle Punch and layered him onto a 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punched from the Silver Glimmer Paper. 

Silver Glimmer Paper (order it HERE) is on sale for only $3.47 per package through Monday so stock up!!

Merry Little Christmas Simply Created

Have you seen all the Kits in the Holiday Catalog?  (click HERE to see them in my store)  I showed you the Snowflake Season Simply Sent Kit a couple of weeks ago and today, I have the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit.

I did add the decorative edging on the front of the card with the Stampin' Trimmer, Rotary Attachment and the Small Scallop Blade.  I also cut a bit off the envelope liner and adhered it to the inside of the card for some added interest. :-)

Merrylittlechristmasboth

This kit contains everything you need (except adhesive) to make unique holiday greetings. Elements to make 8 cards: cardstock cards, envelopes, envelope liners, die-cut Designer Series Paper and cardstock accents, buttons and Baker’s Twine.  The finished card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  Have a merry little Christmas with this easy-to-make card.

Santa's Candy Sleighs

No stamping on this project but how fun!!!  I used various candy bars and candy canes to create Santa's Candy Sleighs.  I wrapped them up with some of my retired Stampin' Up! fabric.  The kiddos really, really want to eat them now!!! Candysleigh

All candy was stacked using a hot glue gun, easy peasy!! :-)

Countdown to Christmas!

Got someone in your house who just can’t wait for Christmas? Help them count down the days by making this fun project.

Inspiration came from the tags at the bottom of page 13 of the Holiday Catalog.

Countdown_to_christmas_1
For the containers, use the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack (the Winter Frost Stack would look great too!). So easy—no cutting necessary!

To make the containers, apply Sticky Strip adhesive like this.

Countdown_to_christmas_2
Roll the container into a tube, then pinch one end closed. Add candy (or whatever you want to put inside), then pinch the other end closed in the opposite direction.

Countdown_to_christmas_3
Attach the tag made with the Morning Post Numbers set and the Deco Labels Framelits (get 25% off these framelits through December 2nd during the Holiday Sale) using a stapler, then adhere the Brights Designer Button using a Glue Dot to hide the staple.

Twelve containers will fit nicely inside the Extra-Large Gift Box. To make the box look a little more festive, I wrapped Season of Style Designer Washi Tape around it.

Countdown_to_christmas_4
Do you have a special way you’ll be counting down the days to Christmas?

Christmas Collectibles Glittery Gift Tags

Had some fun with our Silver Stampin' Glitter and the Smoky Slate Embossing Powder.   I mixed two teaspoons of Smoky Slate Embossing Powder with one teaspoon of the Silver Stampin' Glitter to create this glittery embossig powder.

  Christmascollectibleschalktalktags1

Stamp any image from the Christmas Collectibles stamp set in Versamark on Whisper White card stock, pour on the blinged out embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

ChristmascollectibleschalktalktagscloseAfter I punched out the blinged out ornament, I punched another ornament in Basic Gray, cut it up the middle and attached each piece to the back of my ornament.  This gives it a bit more definition.  The little Merry Christmas Greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and I put everything on a tag cut in Smoky Slate Textured Cardstock with one of the Chalk Talk Framelits.  I created a bunch of these for a Christmas Tag Swap last month.

Wreath from the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit

I received my Festive Flurry Ornament Kit and put all 10 snowflakes together.  I had planned to add them to some of my Christmas Gifts but then I saw a wreath shared by Mary Costello and knew I had to make one!!  This means that I need to order another kit. :-)

Festiveflurrywreath

I used one large and one smaller dinner plate to draw circles on a piece of the cardboard backing that comes in our Specialty Designer Series Papers.  I cut out the circle and cut out the middle to create a ring base for the snowflakes.  I also added a ring using the same dinner plates out of Crumb Cake Card Stock to cover the front.  I stapled some of the Seam Binding that comes in the kit to my wreath ring and then added my snowflakes.

Festiveflurrywreath2

I glued all 10 snowflakes to the front of the ring and added a banner out of Soft Sky card stock that I embossed with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The word "Merry" is die cut from our Silver Foil Paper with the Expressions Thinlits Dies.

Deco Labels Framelits - Christmas Tags

Had an idea come over me this morning so I ran down to the stamp room and made these tags.  Cute, right. :-)  These tags use the Deco Labels Collection Framelits and they are 25% off during the Holiday Sale!!!  Check out all the other great deals, some items up to 50% off!

Decolabelstags

I used the two smallest dies in the set to make these two tags.  I placed a folded piece of Bermuda Bay card stock under the framelit with the fold just inside the die and ran it through the Big Shot to create the tag bases.  I layered them with other die cuts and punch outs.

Gently Falling Thank you's

Needed some quick thank you cards and the Gently Falling set was perfect!  I inked my clear block in Crumb Cake, stamped in on my notecard and then added the maple leaf in Cajun Craze.  This card is sooooo simple, I made 15 of them in about 15 minutes.  Complete with a stamped envelope. Love it!!

Gorgeous Grunge Fall Thanks with Glitter!!

Had fun using the NEW Silver & Gold Stampin' Glitter on this one.  I started with the Label Card Thinlits Die and some Baked Brown Sugar card stock.  Added some fun accents with the versatile stamp set called Gorgeous Grunge.  The leaf is from the Wonderfall stamp set and I stamped the image on a die cut from the coordinating Autumn Accents Bigz Die which just happens to be on sale for 25% off through today!!

Thinlitsgrungeglitter

ThinlitsgrungeglittercloseI used my 2-Way Glue Pen to add lines of glue to the leaf and then added the gold glitter.  Super sparkly in real life.  The little banner is an element included with the Label Card Thinlit Die set and makes a fun 3-D accent on the filp panel.  Here are the other elements.
