Holiday Stocking Gift Card Holders

Well, I pray all of you had a wonderful Christmas. I had a nice time with mine. I keep saying next year will be better because my daughter and her family will be moved back home. It will be nice having them closer to home again. Wyoming is quite a ways away.

 I realize Christmas is over, but I still wanted to share with you some gift card holders I made using the Holiday Stocking Bigz L die. These can be used for little things that can then be hung on your Christmas tree or attach them to a gift. I have also used this die for a baby shower banner when my grandson was about to be born.
Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler, and Very Vanilla
Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, and Very Vanilla
Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, and Very Vanilla
I think you know who these were made for by the tags I have on them. The designer series paper is from the Holiday Catalog, which is only good until January 2, and it is called Festival of Prints. I used a Big Shot, the Holiday Stocking Bigz L die, the Houndstooth, Vintage Wallpaper, and Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folders. The stamp set I made the sentiments from is called Family Reunion. For the rosettes I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I used the Snow Flurry Bigz Die and the Ornament Punch! I also used Champagne Mist and Frost White Shimmer paint to add some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Have a Happy New Year.

Now go-n-stamp!!

Snow Flurry Christmas Card

Christmas is almost here! Are you ready? I am not! I have not done any decorating at all in this house of mine, yet. Do I need to? Yes, I probably do. I think I am going to try and work on that today. This is my Christmas card made using the Snow Flurry Bigz Die. In order to use it you need a Big Shot or something similar to it. This is my favorite out of the Christmas cards I made, although, the Come to Bethlehem is right there too, at least, in my opinion.

This card was made using elegant eggplant, night of navy, wisteria wonder, brushed silver, and whisper white cardstock. I used the snow flurry bigz die, the petals a plenty embossing folder, a big shot, and the scallop trim border punch. For ribbon I chose 5/8 inch organza ribbon. Lastly, I used rhinestone basic jewels.

With all of the hustle and bustle of Christmas going on, try to take the time to stamp!!

Lovely as a Tree Christmas Card

Welcome everyone! If you do not own this stamp set (Lovely as a Tree), you should! It is one of Stampin' Ups! most versatile set. They have carried this one for quite some time now. I love scenery, which that probably makes me love this set too.
Making this card was so easy and yet, it looks harder than it is. You need to try and make one yourself if you do have this set. If not, you can order one very easily by going to my order button on the side.

For cardstock I used chocolate chip, garden green, and whisper white. The images were stamped with garden green and sahara sand classic ink. I used the Big Shot along with the snow flurry bigz die for the snowflake. To make the glittery snow I used frost white shimmer paint. I used a paint brush to apply it to the cardstock. I did not want to use my blender pens because it would have ruined them. I maybe could have used an aqua pen though. I would not have added water to it. The sentiment Merry Christmas was from the stamp set "teeny tiny wishes." Lastly, is the embellishments. I used natural linen thread, early espresso bakers twine, and one large pearl basic jewel.
Have a wonderful day! I will be posting again soon. Please come back!

Take it up a Notch Snow Swirled

As I promised in my last post to "Take it up a Notch," here it is. I don't always follow through with what I say, which I know it is wrong for me to do. I made sure I did what I said this time. I can honestly say that I now like this card. I hope that you do to.

I added the Big Flurry snowflake using my Big Shot and the Big Flurry Snowflake Bigz Die. I also restamped the joy on shimmery white and then cut it out into an oval. I made an oval mat for underneath it. Lastly, I added more bling with rhinestone jewels and a designer vintage faceted button.
Thanks for visiting. I have quite a few more things to post. Visit often.
