Snowflake Wishes

I needed a few more Christmas Cards. This is what I came up with.The Snowflake Splendor Suite was perfect choice.

I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Thick Whisper White Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″

4″ x 5 1/4″ Snowflake Splendor dsp

3 3/4″ x 5″ Balmy Blue Cardstock.  Die cut the snowflake.

Snowflake Wishes Bundle, Snowflake Splendor dsp, Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems, Shimmer Paint,

Add the dsp to the card base. Stamp the sentiment in Balmy Blue, add Dimensionals and adhere to the dsp.

Almost done. Spritz card front with White Frosted Shimmer Paint and Rubbing Alcohol. Once dry, add the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems.

I love how the dsp peaks out of he snowflake.

Coming Home, for Candied Pecans

I found the simplest recipe to make Candied Pecans.

1/2 Cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1 Cup pecan halves (I always through in a couple more handfuls)

  1. Combine all the ingredients except the pecans in a skillet and cook over medium heat for a minute or two, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is bubbling.
  2. Add the pecans and cook for an additional 3 minutes, stirring to coat the pecans in the glaze.
  3. Remove from the heat, and spread the pecans out on parchment paper to let then cool completely.
  4. Break apart, and enjoy.

I didn’t cook my pecans long enough and they were sticky even when completely cool. My hubby said, why not sprinkle powdered sugar on them? Yes, it worked and they tasted great!

I found these plastic jars at the Dollar Tree.

Home Together Dies, Trimming the Town Dsp, All the Trimmigs Embellishments, Real Red Sheer Ribbon, Be Mine Stitched Heart Dies, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Jingle Bells, White Baker's Twine, Candied Pecans, $1 Store Container,

I still had a bunch of these houses die cut from another project and since I am trying to use up all the Christmas stuff before it retires, thought I would use them for my tags. I attached each house onto a die cut heart (Be Mine Stitched Hearts, retired).  I wrapped the Real Red Sheer Ribbon around the jar and tied into a bow. Then I attached the hearts with White Baker’s Twine (retired), added a Jingle Bell and tied into a bow.

I think they turned out pretty cute! And were easy to put together, especially since I had the houses already die cut. the Trimming the Town dsp is no longer available, but the dies, All the Trimmings Embellishments & Jingle Bells are on sale!

Milano Cookies, Prettied up

This is the last of my Poinsettia treats. This time I’m using Milano Cookies. I found them at Target, 3 cookies in each package.

I wrapped up the package with either the Metallic Mesh Ribbon or the Wonder of the Season Combo Pack and added the Poinsettias. I had one more Festive Felt Poinsettia. I added some Shimmery White Embossing Paste to the felt flower. I am on a mission to use up all of these holiday products, the felt, Beaded Pearls, etc. So happy the Metallic Mesh Ribbon is carrying over. I love this stuff.

I hope you’ve enjoyed all of my little treats. I love making these tags. I will have one more cute tag tomorrow, to go with my Candied Pecans.
