Snowman Nuggets

This is such a cute stocking stuffer!  It's a CASE but it was too cute to not copy.  The Snow Place stamp set bundle works perfectly for the top layer of the snowman.  The buttons are made with the black glitter paper.

Treat Bag Gift Card Holder


Gift cards are always a welcome gift for Christmas.  These gift bags work great!  This is one of the cards we made in our November technique club.

I know I won't be able to get to a video before Christmas, so here are the dimensions and general instructions:

Outside bag --
6" x 6" and 3" x 6" piece of  Merry Moments Designer Series Paper run through the Big Shot with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  The tag on the front is 2" x 4" Red Foil Sheet.  The top is punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper.  The silver glimmer bow is also cut from pieces of the treat bag thinlit set.  The "merry" is from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies.

Inside gift holder --
3-1/2" x 5-1/2 whisper white scored at 1-1/4" on bottom.  The top is punched using the Curvy Corner Trio Punch (corners and slit for the ribbon).  The ribbon is tied at the top.  The bottom is folded up on the score line and is secured by a 1/2" x 6" piece of designer paper.  Simply wrap it around the back to the front.  Do not tape the pocket itself, because the card will not fit if you do.  Add a circle embellishment.  That's it!  Super easy!!

Shaving Cream Snow



November and December are typically my "slow" months.  Not so this year.  In addition to all the classes, I've been doing vendor/craft fairs (what was I thinking!!!)  This card is one of the November technique cards.....shaving cream.  I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to the video, but I'll do my best!

The colors are black, tempting turquoise and whisper white.  The refill colors added to the shaving cream are soft sky, marina mist and pacific point.  The stamp set is Flurry of Wishes punched with the Snow Flurry and Flower Medallion punches.

Guy Birthday Card

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!  Just a fun guy birthday card.  I just love that bear from the Thankful Forest Friends Stamp Set.  The Into the Woods designer series paper is the perfect backdrop, and the trees from Wonderland are perfect!

I'm actually having classes during December ... check out my class schedule.
