Christmas Treat Holder

This was the last project my Team made last month. Tomorrow I will show you our swap cards.

You could really use these treat holders for any holiday, not just Christmas. You can find directions HERE!

They are easy to make for little gifts. I love the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper. The white stripes, Santa’s hat, the trim on the elves is fuzzy.  I also love that the Santa’s Signpost Framelits match some of the paper. All you need to do is die cut them, no coloring needed.

Here is the inside. I made the Garden Green treat first and didn’t have full size Ghirardelli Chocolates. They fit perfectly in the center of the circle.  You could also use a Peppermint Patty, or anything flat.

You can see it makes a little pocket for the candy to go.  I used a couple of Glue Dots to hold the candy in place.

Let it Snow (No, Not Yet)

I originally made the card on the right and had those left over letters, so decided they shouldn’t go to waste and they became the 2nd card. I originally got this idea from Tania Tobin. These are two of the make n takes my Team made last month.  We are using a couple new products, like the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle, stamp set & matching Thinlit Die, the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder and the Uninked Spectrum Pad.

For the first card I stamped all the snowflakes with the Spectrum Pad inked up in the colors I wanted up about half way. Then I die cut the word SNOW. I also stamped “Let it” in Balmy Blue from the Pick a Pennant stamp set.

Spectrum Ink Pad is a great option if you want to use multiple colors with one stamp. When you ink up your stamp, you will push the pads together and then when you are done, separate them to store.

Now you need lots of Dimensionals, but big and small ones. Before you add this layer to your card, you will want to stamp the “clouds” in Balmy Blue. Then add this layer to your Thick Whisper White card base.

To finish off I added some of the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Cutting Guide:

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 5 1/4″

4″ x 5 1/2″ Whisper White cardstock

This card is where the Letters you die cut for the card above come into play.  I added Dimensionals to each letter and adhered them to the Swirls & Curls Embossed piece. I did use some Frost White Shimmer Paint on the embossed layer before I put the letters on. Just shake up the paint and use a Sponge Dauber to light add paint to the all the raised areas. I added some snowflakes from the Blizzard Thinlits and some Adhesive-Backed Sequins. That piece was layered onto a Highland Heather piece. The card base is Balmy Blue and stamped with the spectrum pad at the top and the bottom, since you won’t see the center.

Cutting Guide:

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Balmy Blue cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″

3 1/2″ x 5″ Balmy blue cardstock

3 4/8″ x 5 1/8″ Highland Heather cardstock

Stamped Santa’s Bag

This is another project my team made last month. Stamping with Shimmer Paint onto the Santa’s Bags. You can find the bags on page 19 of the Holiday Catalog.

We used Bright Copper and sponged the paint onto the Detailed Leaves stamps with a Sponge Dauber. You can see that the front I didn’t really put enough paint on the stamps. You really have to add a lot of paint to get a bold stamped image. But, I made up for it on the back. Of course……The one thing I will say is you MUST clean your stamps right away, don’t let the paint dry.  I took them to the sink and used a old tooth brush. Also I put a piece of chip board (from the dsp packaging) in each bag so the paint wouldn’t bleed on the other side. It worked perfectly.

Much better stamped images.

I’ve showed you how to the the flowers in this post.

For the Poppy Parade flower I used the largest die in the Detailed Baubles Thinlits.  For the two Vellum Flowers I used the Stitched Labels Dies. I hot glued the flowers to a couple of the Detailed Leaves Dies, used a clip to attach to the bag. Also sponged some of the Copper Shimmer Paint onto each flower and the tips of the leaves. It looks like I Embossed everything with Copper Embossing Powder. This takes less time and less mess.

You can see in this photo how to cut the flowers.
