Quick Little Christmas Gifts

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy Friday to you. Two weeks till Christmas. Are you ready? I'm about halfway there. This weekend for me is going to be getting even more things completed (like some baking) in between my son's soccer games. Still need to finish Christmas cards, too. I'll be busy, busy this coming week. Even if it's a crazy time of year, I do enjoy it.

This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing some quick little Christmas gifts that you can still make for family, friends, coworkers, neighbors or anyone you need a little gift for. I made these little curvy keepsake boxes for some great friends who just happen to be stampers too. We went out for dinner earlier this week to celebrate Christmas and I wanted to give these special ladies a little something to let them know I appreciate them.

The curvy keepsake box can be made into so many cute little things and a little Santa suit box was perfect for the occasion. They didn't take long to make at all either. Which when you are making them last minute (not saying that's what I did, lol) you need quick and not very difficult.

To make it a little more interesting I used the Boho chic embossing folder to put some texture on the box. I also used the enamel dots from the Holiday catalog for the "buttons" on the jacket.  It's difficult to see in the pictures but the white part of the buckle is actually the dazzling details glimmer paper. Makes it look so awesome. I love it. 

Then I stamped a little tag and die cut it with the deco labels framelits to dress it up even more. It's all about the little details. Or so I believe.  Are you wondering what I put inside the box?  Wonder no more, I put a little hand sanitizer inside. One can never have too many hand sanitizers can they?

The one little detail that I absolutely love is the little wooden snowflake element on the tag. They are natural wood in color but I made my snowflakes white by dabbing (or really smooshing) them into a craft Whisper White pad. The finished snowflake adds the perfect final touch to this adorable box.

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for even more great small Christmas gifts. Enjoy these next two weeks leading up to Christmas. It will be over way to quick and then we need to wait a whole year for another festive time of year.

Thank you for stopping by. See you soon.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy Friday! Best day of the week, well Saturday and Sunday is pretty great too. Being that it's Friday, that means a great post with the Sisters in Stamping, as well. This week we are getting into the Christmas spirit and sharing great Christmas cards with you. Be sure to head over there if you need more ideas to finish up your cards. Unless, you are one of the lucky people that are ahead of the game and already then you will have even more ideas to begin next year's cards before this  year even ends.

This card was creating by cutting out some of the great designs from the Home for Christmas Designer Series paper to use as the focal point for the card. I mean really who wouldn't think a Christmas tree, Santa and some presents shouldn't be on the front of a card? The artwork on this paper is gorgeous and you can easily make a full card using these images. The only tedious thing may be the cutting out of the images, but since I don't mind cutting, I didn't think that was a problem. Now if I had to color all these images, that would be an entirely different story.

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more great Christmas card ideas. You won't be sorry.

Happy Black Friday!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Welcome to a great Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping. Today we are sharing with you some projects made using Basic Black, you know, in honor of Black Friday. What a fun theme and very appropriate I think.

Did you get any great deals shopping today? Be sure to check out my deal for you below.

I made this card using the black glitter paper for my penguin. Who wouldn't love a black, sparkly, adorable little penguin card? Plus, I believe the sentiment on the card is what we are all thinking, "It's Christmas already?"  How in the world did that happen?  Time just keeps on moving (and fast, I might add).

I just cut out the penguin using the framelits but then I had a dilemma on my hands, how do I get his cute face on the glitter?  So, I stamped the penguin from the snow friends stamp set on Whisper white paper and cut out his belly and face. I also used some red glitter paper for the candy cane and one of the banner strips hanging down the side. You know I love me some glitter.

There's a lot of texture going on with this card. Some embossing, glitter paper, foil paper, slanted cuts, banner cuts and a cute cut-out penguin. I have to say, I LOVE IT! Hope you do too.

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more projects using Black for Black Friday.
