Tree Trimmings Top Note Box

Here is a beautiful box to put all kinds of fun presents in! I saw this box on Mary's blog. I used the Tree Trimming stamp set and cut out the ornaments. I used the En Francois background stamp and layered it on some Chocolate Chip and a Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Circle. I ran a piece of Always Artichoke Top Note through the Square Lattice embossing folder.

For the box I started with a 9" x 6" piece of Always Artichoke and scored it 1" from each side and then at 4" and 5" on the 9" side. I cut off the side pieces for the top of the box and then assembled the box and placed the top note die pieces on the top and bottom.

Top Note Gift Card Holder

Need a cute way to give a gift card? Look no further than this cute Top Note Gift Card holder. I used one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets, Winter Post for this project. I used dimensionals on the front top note die to create a pocket for the gift card. Here is the tutorial from Sandi that I followed to make it.


Christmas Cone Ornament

Here is a Christmas Cone Ornament that I made. I used a large dish to trace half a circle and then used the Contempo wheel to decorate the base. I added a border with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch and added some gold waffle paper inside. I curled thin strips of Jolly Holiday DSP and added them behind the ornament. It's ready to be filled with treats and hung on the tree!

Christmas Ornament Card

We made this Christmas ornament card at my last stamp club meeting. We started with two Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circles and added the flourish from the Baroque Motifs stamp set in Old Olive. We added a strip of Jolly Holiday DSP and some Dotted Ribbon Scallop Border punched edges. We stamped the Christmas tree and added a poinsettia made with the Boho Blossoms punch. We embossed a Round Tab punch with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Merry Christmas!!

Poinsettia Card

I've been seeing this beautiful poinsettia made the leaf from the French Foliage stamp set in the Holiday Mini catalog and had some time yesterday to sit down and make one. I stamped the leaf in Riding Hood Red and then rolled it in Cherry Cobbler. Then I stamped versamark on top and embossed the leafs with iridescent ice embossing powder. I cut out all the leaves and adhered them to a circle base and added a pearl in the middle. I used the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder for the background and wrapped the card like a present with the Always Artichoke seam binding from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Don't wait, only two more weeks left to order from the Holiday Mini Catalog!

Reindeer Christmas card

I really enjoyed making these Christmas cards for friends. The card came together easily with the Dasher stamp and the Contempo Christmas set. I used the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and the Jolly Holiday DSP. I stamped the reindeer and sentiment on a Very Vanilla circle cut out with the clear Circle Sizzix die and layered it on a Soft Suede scallop cut out with the Scallop Circle Sizzix die. I used some Cherry Cobbler seam binding to tie a bow on the bottom of the card.

Got Merry Milk Cartons

I made these Mini Milk Cartons as gifts for my Stamp Club Members. I used the versatile Got Treats stamp set and the Ting Tags and Jewelry Tag Punch for the little tags. I wrapped some Jolly Holliday DSP around the milk cartons and a real red taffeta ribbon bow on top!


Bookmark Card

Here is a card I made with a gift built right in! A bookmark made with Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Two Tags Sizzix die. I stamped with Always Artichoke on Crumb Cake and watercolored the poinsettias. I layered it on some Cherry Cobbler and used the Word Window punch to create a slot for the bookmark. For the bookmark I used the coordinating Belle wheel in Soft Suede and added a poinsettia with the Boho Blossoms punch.


Christmas Tags

Here are some more simple Christmas tags, ready to go on a plate of yummy goodies! I used the Sweet Season stamp set and the Two Tags die.

Happy Birthday Gift

This is a card and gift that I made for my friend's birthday today! I used the Autumn Spice DSP and Perfect Punches stamp set. For the card, I made the scallop flower with two large scallop old olive pieces run through through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka dot embossing folder. I folded them and attached them together and added a large brad in the center.

For the cards inside the box, I used the Autumn Spice DSP with Perfect Punches.


Owl Reindeer and Santa Claus tags & FREE Gift Offer

I'm still havin' fun with the owl punch! This time I made some Reindeer and Santa Owls for my Christmas tags. I used Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Two Tags sizzix die and widened the hole with the slot punch to added some satin red and old olive ribbon. I used the Tags 'til Christmas stamp with the scalloped rectangle clear sizzix die.

Bells & Bough Waterfall Card

I haven't made a waterfall card in a long time and decided to try one with the Bells & Boughs stamp set and Deck the Halls DSP (now on sale together for 20% off!). Here is link to the tutorial on SCS. I really like how it turned out. I watercolored each of the images and then sponged with river rock around the image. I added the sentiment inside the pull out.
