November Stamp-a-Stack



Here are the first 3 cards we did this month for my Holiday Stamp-a-Stack. First card was cased from Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts. I just changed the main stamp to Big on Christmas as I didn’t have the one she used. Wish I did. Dawn used Holiday Lineup. Just couldn’t justify another Christmas stamp set. The second one uses Deer Friends (love that hostess set) and Best Yet (another hostess set), Ski Slope DSP and Baja Breeze Striped Grosgrain ribbon. I added a small Felt Flurrie, which is in the Holiday mini catalog. I totally cased this card, but can’t remember who. I love how the snowman is attached to the inside of the card and you can see it through the front by punching a 1 /3/8″ circle. And the last one is using Snow Swirled again and Sincere Salutations stamp sets. I embossed the snowflakes using Versamark and white embossing powder, then used a dauber and inked around each snowflake with Baja Breeze. I added some Dazzling Diamonds, using the 2-way glue pen, added Baja Breeze Striped Grosgrain ribbon and stamped the greeting. 

If felt like I had a snowman, Baja Breeze, white card theme going, but it wasn’t intentional. I will post the last 2 cards tomorrow. So stay tuned……..

Snowman Card Using the Top Note Die

Isn’t this cute? I saw one similar on someone’s blog, and of course I can’t remember who. I changed the way she did the hat and the flower. I cut a piece of black & whisper white using the Sizzix Top Note. Cut off half of the black piece at the points in the middle, added a piece of black c/s, 4 1/8″ x 1″ to make the rim. The flower is from the Birds & Blooms die. Those are cut in Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss for the inside of the flower and the leaves. The eyes are made using the 1″circle punch in whisper white, sponged with Going Grey and the center of the eyes are 3/4″ circle punches in black. The nose is Pumpkin Pie cut with the large star. I just cut one of the points off. I then sponged around the Whisper White with Going Grey and added it to a basic card in Whisper White. The sentiment is from, Best Yet and stamped with white craft ink. 

Mini Candy Bar Holder


A couple of weeks ago I was checking out Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts and she had this video on how to make these cute little candy holders. They are so easy to make and don’t take a long time to make. These would be really cute if you were doing a craft fair. 

I made mine using the Ski Slope DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I used Baja Breeze for the base on both holders. I added one of the Little Felt Flurries (also in the mini)with a brad from the Pretty’s Kit and set the snowflake on Baja Breeze punched out with the Curly Label punch. The ribbon I used is the Taffeta ribbon in Whisper White & Riding Hood Red.
