Christmas Gift Tags

Hello Stamping Friends,

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family. We had a very nice holiday. There were about 20 people here for dinner. Lots of cooking and baking but so great to have everyone here.

Are you all tired out from Black Friday shopping? No shopping here for me. I can't be bothered with all that craziness. However, I'll have to really think about getting all my shopping done if I continue to work as much as I have been. Guess, I better set some time aside now. Oh man, I also have Jonah's birthday to plan, Christmas cards to make, decorating to be done, baking. Oh, tis the season. I do enjoy the holidays and I somehow manage to get it all done, I just don't know how.

Anyway, on to this week's Sisters in Stamping challenge: Christmas gift tags.  I had such a great time creating these little guys.  They come together really quickly and look sooooooooo cute.  I love the little bling added with the silver glimmer paper. Doesn't sparkle nearly enough in the pictures but it's awesome in person.

 
I made a set of 4 gift tags. Each one a little bit different but they all used the same basic supplies. Pretty neat how different they look but yet coordinate beautifully together.

 
This one has the chevron folder embossed on the entire base.  Of course, the tree is on with dimensionals. 



 
Stamping Supplies Used:
Stamps: Color Me Christmas & Label Love
Ink: Staz on black, cherry cobbler
Paper: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White Cardstock, Silver Glimmer Paper, Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories: Big Shot, Chevron Embossing Folder, Paper Snips, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Artisan Label Punch, Stampin' Write Markers: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black & a stapler (non SU)
 
Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping for more tag ideas.

Frosty Wreath for Fabulous Friday

Hello Stamping Friends,

Time for another Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we needed to make a home décor piece for the holidays.  Hmmm, that's what I said at first, but now, I'm loving my final product.  I really do think it's F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S.  Hope you agree.

 
A beautiful paper wreath. The Winter Frost specialty designer series paper from the holiday catalog is wonderful. The foil accent sheets really make this wreath dazzle. Just hard to see in the picture.

 
I cut 6 sheets of paper (2 of them were the specialty sheets) into 1/2" x 6" strips and curled them using scissors. Yes, the same method that you use to curl ribbon to make packages pretty. I hot glued my strips to the Styrofoam wreath but I have heard others use straight pins to pin them on. I personally just think it's easier to hot glue. Plus, I know it will be staying in place.

 
This is just a picture of it against a wall instead of my front door with the windows.  I cut snowflakes using the festive flurry framelits dies from silver glimmer paper which in my ever so humble opinion just finishes the project off perfectly. No, seriously, the sparkle the snowflakes add makes the whole project pop and look more spectacular. The camera just can't capture it.

 
Here is a close-up of the left hand side of the wreath. Notice I cut the large snowflakes and then cut a smaller snowflake out of the center.  The large snowflakes are different (look closely), the centers have different snowflakes cut out of them, one small and one a little larger. After all, there are no two snowflakes alike.  Then I place the cut-outs in between the large snowflakes.
 
The finishing bling was the Frosted Finishes Embellishments added to the centers of the smaller snowflakes.  The snowflakes are also hot glued onto the paper.
 
Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more great home décor projects.
 
Stamping Supplies Used:
Stamps: None
Ink: None
Paper: Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, Silver Glimmer paper
Accessories: Frosted Finishes Embellishments, Festive Flurry Framelits dies, Big Shot, Magnetic plate,  Silver 1/8" ribbon, hot glue gun, hot glue sticks

Hello Stamping Friends

It's Friday and I'm sure glad for Saturday and Sunday this week. I've been subbing 4 days a week for the past few weeks so I have a new found appreciation for the weekend. Being that it is Friday, that means it's time for another Fabulous Friday posting with the Sisters in Stamping.

This week we selected a challenge to make Thanksgiving table favors or place cards for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. I took the challenge a step further and combined it to make a Thanksgiving table favor that doubled as a place card. Genius, you're thinking, right? Not really but it was pretty easy to combine the two.

 
This dinner favor/place card came together very quickly thanks to the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit found in the Holiday Catalog. The only thing I used that were not a part of the kit were   the cello bag and adhesives. You can make these for everyone at your Thanksgiving dinner within a matter of minutes. The only cutting I had to do was the white bark like paper behind the Papa banner. The folded piece of tangerine tango designer paper that makes the topper for the bag was the perfect size already. Easy, right?


Just buy some trail mix already made or if you want make your own, fill the bags and there you go. A perfect little accompaniment to your Thanksgiving table. The kit has enough supplies for 10 guests. Below you will find a picture of the complete kit. Lots of great stuff included in it.

 
Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more great Thanksgiving table favors.

Paper Ornaments

Hello Stamping Friends,

It's Friday! Yippee!  Hope you are having a great one. Today with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing with you paper-crafted ornaments. There are so many wonderful ornaments that we can make using Stampin' Up! products. Wouldn't an entire tree made of paper ornaments be really neat?

Here's mine. It uses the awesome snowflake bundle from the Holiday catalog. I love the different color blues together. This ornament uses three of the snowflakes (all different sizes) that are layered together using (my favorite thing) dimensionals to really make them pop.

 
The 1/8" silver ribbon is a great finishing touch that serves dual purpose: decoration at the bottom and hanger at the top. And of course it just needed a large basic rhinestone in the center for some bling. (Don't forget those are on sale until Monday) 
 
 
Just another picture of it with a white background so you can see it differently. Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more ornament ideas.
 
Stamping Supplies Used:
Stamps: Snow Burst
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, & Whisper White
Paper: Pool Party, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, Snow burst framelits, magnetic platform, dimensionals, 1/8" silver ribbon, large basic rhinestones

A Striped Christmas

Hello Stamping Friends,

Welcome to another Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping. Well, now that we have Halloween behind us, I guess most of us are in full gear to get ready for the Christmas season. I know we do have Thanksgiving in there, too. However, we all know that it is certainly time to start thinking about our Christmas cards.

This week our challenge was to use the Designer Series paper from the Holiday catalog. Any one of them.  I selected the paper stack because it's a good size to cut for a card without using a whole sheet of 12x12 paper.  I love, love, love the paper stacks.

 
Here's a jolly, holly card featuring Santa and one of his reindeer. Looks to me that Santa is giving him a sweet treat to be ready for the big night.  Now, don't fall on the floor or anything, but, yes, indeed, I colored on this card. Can you believe it? 

 
And a close-up of the stamped images. I masked the tree in the middle so I could make a forest of trees behind my main cut out images.
 
I will add the stamping supplies later today. I have to run off to school for now.
Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more designer series paper inspiration.
