Merry Christmas to All of You!

This is a short and sweet post today.  I wanted to wish you all a Very, Merry Christmas.  And to Thank You for visiting my blog.  I am sharing the Christmas Card I sent out this year.

 

Spirited Snowmen, 148072

 

 

“Friendship Warms My Heart” is such a great sentiment to me.  I love that so many of my friends are more like family.  So this was perfect.  I really hope it made the recipient smile.

Thank you for visiting today.  I have included the supply list at the bottom if you have this set and want to save the idea for next year’s card.

Merry Christmas Eve!

I usually have some baked goods to give as Host gifts during the holidays with a cute gift tag I make. This year I have not made very much.  I do have some for tomorrow, so of course I had to make a cute tag to go with it.  To me, tags are simply miniature cards.  At least the one I made today is designed like that.

 

So Santa, 147821

 

I think these Santas are just adorable and will really miss this great stamp set when it retires.  When I first saw this cute guy I knew immediately he would be on my baked goods tags.  I could not resist.

The stamping and layout are very simple for this.  If I needed quite a few of these I really would not want to spend a lot of time making them.  This one is stamped, colored with Stampin’ Blends, and then layered.  That is all it took.

Thank you so much for stopping in today.  I hope you are having a great holiday and will continue to enjoy time with family and friends.  I will have a quick post tomorrow for your morning coffee.  I will be sharing the Christmas card I mailed out this year.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Ribbon Christmas Tree

Today I have continued with the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon theme from yesterday’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  I made a couple of cards and the one I used yesterday in the hop was my favorite.  The one I am sharing today is the second favorite.  Again, there is only a tiny bit of stamping.  It is definitely different.

 

Stampin' Up!, Tea Room Ribbon, Broadway DSP, Coastal Cabana, Peaceful Noel, Darling Label Punch, Jackie Beers

Tea Room Ribbon Combo, 146893

 

This is not a normal stamping card as you can see.  But I have always loved the ribbon trees you see in different forms each year.  I used to have throw pillows that had a gorgeous gold ribbon for the tree.  So I created one in miniature for my card.  This ribbon is from the Tea Room Suite of products.  You get the Coastal Cabana ribbon and the Vanilla ribbon together in one pack.  They are a great value and are beautiful.

To match the ribbon color, I went with Coastal Cabana as a layer.  It is not a normal Christmas color, but who cares!  The beautiful gold DSP is from the Broadway Bound Specialty DSP.  It is thick and gorgeous!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I will be back to a normal card to share with you tomorrow.  As always, all of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by beautiful paper and beautiful ribbons – how clever! We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

From the minute I heard this Blog Hop title, I have had that song in my head.  Except that is about all of the song I can remember.  So I am humming Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon!  Yikes.  So….with that in my head, I came up with a “Wrapped” card.  That song reminds me of a gift.  Here is my gift to you today.

 

Stampin' Up!, Takeout Treats, Peaceful Noel, Joyous Noel DSP, Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper, Merry Merlot , Copper, Jackie Beers

TMerry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon, 147818

 

This is really not a card for mailing, but I love how it turned out.  The focal points of the card are the ribbon and the tag.  Although the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP, and Glimmer Paper,  are fabulous.  The little tag is stamped with the sprig from the Peaceful Noel stamp set.  The sentiment ,”This Is For You!”, is from the Takeout Treats stamp set.  It is embossed with Copper embossing powder.  The reversible ribbon with Merry Merlot and Copper really ties in with the two papers and the embossed sentiment.

Dashing Sparkles

Last week I made a Really Sparkly gift card holder for the Pals Blog Hop.  You can see that post HERE.  So I am using some of the same pack of Joyous Noel Glimmer DSP for today’s card.  I just used a different color.

 

Dashing Deer Bundle, 149935

 

My Sparkly, Dashing Deer!  For all the sparkle and shine, there is actually very little stamping involved on this one.  I die cut the deer and the filigree in the corner using the Dies from the Dashing Deer Bundle.  I stamped on the deer with the small flower in the stamp set, and that is it.

I used the multi-purpose adhesive sheets for the filigree.  It would have been tedious to attempt to get glue on those little pieces.  I believe even using the fine tip glue pen it would be exacting.  So the multi-purpose adhesive sheets to the rescue.  You just attach the sheet to your card stock before you die cut and easy peasy.  You have basically turned your card stock into a sticker.  This works especially well when you are trying to adhere something to the glimmer DSP.

For the finishing touch, I added the gold pearls to the flowers I stamped on the deer.  Its a simple way to up the game just a bit.  And of course, this had to be a Rudolph.  So I added one Red Rhinestone to the tip of the nose for the final bling, and necessary touch, for my card.

Thank you for visiting today!  Please come back tomorrow for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  I cannot wait to see what my fellow demonstrators have come up with this month.

Making Christmas Bright

I am on a Bright kick for some reason.  I believe the sentiments in a couple of the stamp sets have steered me in that direction and I have kept going.  And whatever leads you in a crafty direction is a good thing.  So here is another bright Christmas card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Making Christmas Bright, Making Everyday Bright, Blueberry Bushel, Jackie Beers

Making Everyday Bright, 148013

 

My plan is that the lightbulbs be in the shape of a Christmas Tree.  I hope you can see that!!  I never know if I succeed in my wild ideas or not.  You could be seeing bowling pins lined up (Yikes!) Now I see bowling pins.  LOL!!

The Making Everyday Bright stamp set pairs with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.  And the punch is part of the Making Christmas Bright Bundle of punch and stamp set.  I really love when Stampin’ Up! makes more than one set to fit a punch or a die.  I feel like it is more bang for your buck.  The Making Everyday Bright set has other than Christmas light bulbs.  It is set for all year round.  Love, Love, Love it!!

I almost forgot to mention the sentiment.  It is from the Making Christmas Bright Stamp set.  I punched the blue with the Everyday Label Punch and the Poppy with the Darling Label Punch.  I then trimmed both down to a smaller size to fit on the top of the card.  Don’t be afraid to experiment with your punches!

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow.  I am trying to finish up my Christmas cards for mailing!  Yikes!!!
