Sharing 2 cards today that I made for a Christmas card swap.
I made the cards with Spellbinders™ die templates, the cone is Nested Lacey Pennants, the flower is Layered Poinsettia, and the tags are from Fancy Tags One and Grommet Tags. I used a variety of papers, it was a great opportunity to dig deep into my stash and find some patterned I wouldn’t have otherwise used. I should do this more often it’s like shopping without spending money!
I sprayed the reds with Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist to unify the tones and give the flowers a bit of sparkle. The stamp Joyeux Noel is from JustRite Stampers. The Nested Lacey Pennants have the lacey part folded in, and I curled the entire piece in my hands to make them seem more rounded. I applied SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Crafty Foam Tape to the center of the cone, and E-Z Squares® to the lacey edges. 3D Foam Squares hold the tags in place.
I’m off to do more Christmas shopping! I have both trees up, but only the vintage tree has been decorated. It’s hard to pin down a time when everyone is home and awake at the same time to decorate and take pictures!
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
Welcome everyone! I’m getting ready for the holidays!
I made these gift bag toppers over the weekend. They’re fun, festive and quick to make with JustRite® Stampers and Spellbinders™ dies!
I stamped with the JustRite Stampers sets and heat embossed the designs. I used gel pens to color inside some of the lines to add a pop of color. The center of the stamp allows room to stamp a greeting or write a name.
Once the ink was dry I die cut and embossed the images with Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornament and 2011 Heirloom Ornament dies. I attached the ornament shapes onto clothes pins with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Crafty Power Tape. Tie ribbon above the ornament, add a spot of bling and they’re done! Just clip to a gift bag!

Christmas is a special time for children and Bull Terriers. Remember last Christmas, stealing the stockings?
This year she hasn’t paid any attention to them.
But she loves the tree. She was so excited to get the tree out and had to sniff every last branch as we put it up. Everyone should have such an enthusiastic helper!
Here she’s doing the slow walk under the tree, she is meserized. Her ears go back, she walks very slowly, placing one foot at a time.
I wonder what happened to the “old” baskitball(s)?
I have been crazy busy with a huge project, and I’m working on a self hosted site as well. And someone needs to do some shopping, as you can see, there’s not much under the tree!
Thanks for stopping by!
