Gifts of Christmas

Here is another card I did for my Christmas stamp a stack last week. Super quick and easy! Just stamp the dove from the Gifts of Christmas set in eggplant, color in the center of the flowers with the rose red marker and add the suede polka dot ribbon to the edges. The suede paper in the background is from the Christmas cocoa pack.

That Christmas Cocoa paper is so yummy!

I just can't get enough of this CHristmas Cocoa paper. I love it. You just want to keep touching it because it is so soft and fuzzy.

This was a card I made for my recent Christmas card stamp a stack. I used the Delightful Decorations set and Christmas cocoa paper. Super quick and easy card.

Another Video?? I am on a roll!

Can you believe I did another video already? I am getting the hang of it now although I still haven't mastered the editing with starting and stopping so I have to do the whole thing in 1 take or start over from the beginning. I need a computer guru in the family! Scroll down to see the video.

My video today shows how to make this cute Christmas Treat Bag. Here is the front view….

Another Charming card


Here is another Charming card I made. I just love this set. It is so shabby chic looking. I hope it makes it into the big catalog next year. This one uses the Bella Bleu designer paper, kraft and chocolate chip cardstock. For the scalloped piece, I used the square scallop big shot die and then cut it.  The CREATE medallion is punched out with the 1 inch punch and layered with a dimensional onto the 1 1/4 inch punch and then I used the paper piercer to poke the little holes around it.

This set is only available til Jan 4th though so you better get it now before it's too late.

I used all kraft and chocolate chip cardstock on this one. THe ink is versamark and chocolate chip. Watch the video for more details.

Christmas Treat bags

 

Here is another great Christmas gift idea! THese are super quick and easy too. Just punch out the bag pattern using your Big Shot Fancy Favor box die (I used the Christmas Cocoa paper). Then glue the flap on the side and the bottom flap using sticky strip.  I punched a scallop circle out of the front piece and decorated with the banner. The candy canes are from Cracker Barrel. If you don't have one near you, don't fret…I ordered them online from the Cracker Barrel site. I did repackage them into one of our gusset cello bags that we used to carry. I still have a bunch leftover. You don't have to though….they look fine in the original wrapper.

 


Here is a close up of the banner part.

Gifts of Christmas….

 

 

This is a wall hanging that I did in my recent Christmas gift ideas stamp camp. I think this was the favorite project of almost everyone. My upline Faith made this one for me a while back as a gift and I thought it would make a great project for class. I used the Gifts of Christmas stamp set and the Merry Moments designer paper. The chocolate chip is embossed with the finial press folder through the Big Shot.  There was lots of sponging on this one. I also used the sanded background,  the ovals from the big shot and several other accessories. It is not hard to make but does take a little time. The chipboard is also from Stampin Up.

 

 

This is a close up of the dove part. I don't know why the color looks so yellow. I didn't realize that til I was just editing it but the real color is in the first photo. I sponged everything in close to cocoa. I think originally it was done with creamy caramel but I couldn't get that dark enough.
