Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “My Favorite Season”  – showcasing our favorite stamps and supplies for our holiday project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My Favorite Season is Christmas.  It has been since I was a child and maybe even increased since then.  I even collect Santa Claus anythings!  My biggest difficulty was choosing between two stamp sets.  I went with #Elfie because of the versatility of the set.

I made the card and added a matching gift tag as an extra.  I love all of the stamps in the #Elfie Stamp Set.  They are just adorable.  Here is a view of just the card alone.


Stampin' Up!, Elfie, Jackie Beers


I used the Toile Tiding Designer Series Paper as my backdrop.  I stamped the Elf in Memento Tuxedo Ink an colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I always like to add ribbon but in this instance it just did not seem quite enough.  I tried a couple of things and then decided to add a few of the little gift boxes.  I stamped and colored them the same way.  They are fussy cut, but are very simple to do.

While I was adding the gifts to the card, I thought the gift tag required one as well.  The gift tag is punched using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I punched both pieces at the same time.  To give the border across the top, I made the Vanilla part 1/8″ shorter.  I used temporary adhesive with the two pieces flush at the bottom for punching.  After punching them, I slid the Vanilla up to the appropriate place of the layering.  The hole is still lined up, but just a bit low on the front, and plenty large enough to run the Curly Red Ribbon through.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I greatly appreciate it and hope you like my #Elfie projects.  I have the measurements listed below the Pals Blog Line-Up.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!
