Creative Inking Blog Hop - Celebrating Winter!

Creative inking logoWelcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop, I am so excited to be part of this hop and I know you will enjoy all the projects! I chose one of the patterns in the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack for both of my projects today.  First frost dsp
At first glance, most of the patterns in this paper are definitely not very manly but the pattern I chose to work with certainly can be.  :-) Detailed deer card I used the Detailed Deer Framelits to crop an image from the layer of Crumb Cake. I kept the negative piece and placed it over a striped piece of the DSP.  This was layered on a piece of Soft Suede and then the small flag was added to the back.  I added the main layer to a piece of Very Vanilla that was run through the Big Shot with the 3D Dynamic Corrugated Embossing Folder.  I stamped my sentiment from the Best Birds set on a 3/4" strip of vanilla and then added a snippet of Soft Suede to the right edge and flagged the left.  Everything is on a Crumb Cake card base.
Detailed deer cardThis card was very simple to create and the layout could be used with any Designer Series Paper you may have.  I inked the group of trees from Winter Woods in Crumb Cake and cropped the naked trees from the In the Woods Thinlits out of Soft Suede set to create my wintry scene.  My sentiment is from the Country Home set and I added a few leftover sequins from a recent Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I love that I have a few extra goodies from most of those kits!!

Nugget Trays, Matchbook Ghiradelli Holder

In my Facebook Live last week (video is below), I created these fun candy treats for the holidays.  These are the perfect gift for those people you want to gift with a small something.  Your Letter Carrier, UPS Driver, Hairdresser, Bank teller, Grocery Store Clerk, your kiddos former teachers......  These nugget trays are so simple to make. You start with a 2 x 4 piece of carsstok, score it o

 at 1/2" down both long sides to create a tray.  Wrap 1 x 3 strips of DSP around the nuggets of your choice and adhere them to the tray with Tear & Tape or Glue Dots.  Side the tray into one of our 2 x f8 cello bags and tie it with a ribbon.  Add a tag for more fun.  Here are three I created. Nugget trays They all use the All is Bright Designer Series Paper.  I also used the Christmas Bulb Punch, and fussy cut the stocking from another pattern in the DSP
Nugget traysI used our White Chalk Marker to add a little highlight to each of the bubs.  I "drew" the string by placing a circle die cut on my stitched circle and running my Basic Black Marker around it.
Nugget traysMy sentiment is from the Dashing Deer stamp set and I embossed it in gold to match the gorgeous pattern in the piece of the DSP.
Nugget traysThis stocking was fussy cut from the same DSP I used to wrap the nuggets and then I added some Red Rhinestones that are part of the Year End Closeout!!!  Winter woods matchbook buffalo checkCreated this matchbook treat with a 2 1/2 x 7 1/2 strip of red, score at 1 and 4 1/2.  I used the Buffalo Check background stamp and stamped it in Mint Macaron.  I then used my ruler and my Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin' Write Markers and a ruler to create more lines for this fun pattern.  You could also use our Stampin' Blends.

Merry Christmas!

From  my family to yours, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!  I am so thankful for all my customers and team members, I feel so blessed today. :-)
Here's a fun card called a Diorama.  You take two quarter sheets of cardstock, score and fold them to create the main card shape.  Crop a shape out of the front and decorate it.  Scroll down for a link to one of my videos showing you how to make a diorama. 
I cropped two rows of houses from the Hometown Greetings Edgelits for this card and also used the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the large snowflake in the top left corner.

Another Open End Sour Cream Container - VIDEO

Here's another Open End Sour Cream container for you. This one uses the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  I love these containers because the recipient doesn't have to destroy your beautiful creation to get at the treats. :-)
I stamped the reindeer in Early Espresso and cropped him with the Everyday Label Punch and cropped another piece from Garden Green.  I cut the punch out up the center and added it to both sides of the reindeer piece for a pop of green.

Logo1Welcome to our final week of the Santa's Little Elves Design Team Countdown to Christmas!  This  is our last project and it is perfect for those last minute gifts.  I have some nieces and nephews that I like to give a little cash to and these money holders are perfect.  They are easy and only use one sheet of cardstock for the main piece. 
You can find your how to video and a FREE Printable Project Sheet complete with a supply list, cutting directions and instructions below.  Scroll down a bit to find the Printable Project Sheet.  You can also find links to all the other weeks if you scroll down.

This project uses our Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper, I love this paper and you can use it for other occasions as the Old Olive, Basic Black and White are year round colors!!

Wrapped Candy Bars

Here is a super quick and easy gift for anyone.  I made a ton of these to share at the Stampin' Up! On Stage event in early November and I am just now getting around to sharing them with you.  Good thing they are available everywhere and are super easy to make.
My favorite to use at Christmas are the Hershey's Candy Cane bars, I have two sizes, the 1.55 oz and the 3.5 oz. Wrap candy bars to give as gifts to anyone this holiday.  Details on my blog www.barbstamps.com #hersheysbars #stampinup #quiltedchristmas

The smaller bar can be easily wrapped by a 5-1/4" x 6" piece of Quilted Christmas DSP and I wrapped the larger bars with a 6" x 6" and then added a panel of coordinating cardstock over the seams.
