Christmas Frestive Flurry Gifts

I hope everyone had a very Merry CHRISTmas! New Years is just around the corner. Before the New Year arrives, I wanted to share with you some little gifts I made up for my three office managers. They are all alike, but different in colors. These are fun and easy to create, as long as you have the tools. I will share with you what you need.

These are created with all Stampin' Up! products, except for the clear bags.
Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Very Vanilla, Modern Medley DSP, Island Indigo, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, and Winter Frost Specialty DSP
Classic Ink: StazOn Black, Real Red, Coastal Cabana,  and Island Indigo
Stampin' Write Markers: Basic Gray, Real Red, and Island Indigo
Stamp Set: Perfect Blend
Tools: Big Shot, Festive Flurry Framelits Dies, Fancy Favor Die (retired), Top Note Die, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, and Blender Pens
Accessories: Large Pearl Basic Jewel, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and Frosted Finishes Embellishments

In case you wonder, my managers loved them. They think I am so creative. I think, if you have the right tools you can do about anything. I hope you enjoy them, too.

 Now go-n-stamp!!

Festive Flurry Framelits Easel Card

It has been a little while since I have posted. Sometimes the busyness of life gets in the way. I hope everyone had a very nice Thanksgiving. I really enjoyed my family and being able to get to spend some time with all of them.
I don't know about you, but I am ready to get things ready for Christmas. This easel card can be the kick-off for it. I had never made an easel card. I watched how to make one on YouTube and off to work I went. 

This card has many layers. Due to that reason, it is heavy. To help give some support for the snowflake to stand up better, I attached a toothpick underneath. It also keeps it in place that way.
When I purchased the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies, I did not purchase the stamp set that went along with it. I just used designer series paper form the Winter Frost paper stack and the Winter Frost Specialty DSP. 

If you would like to try and make one of these, here is the list of Stampin' Up supplies you will need.

Cardstock:  Island Indigo, Whisper White, Brushed Silver, and Winter Frost DSP
Ink:  Classic Island Indigo
Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Tools:  Big Shot, Festive Flurry Framelits, and Bitty Banners Framelits
Accessories:  Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle and Frosted Finishes Embellishments

You can do what I did and go to YouTube to see how one is made. Before you go, leave a comment if you would like. Thank you for looking!!
Now go-n-stamp!!
