Window Card + Sneak Peek of new Stamp Set!!

Hi there! Today's card I made for a challenge at Splitcoast Stampers for the Creative Crew. The challenge is to make a window somewhere using dies/and or punches. For mine, I used the Deco Labels Framelits. I made the window, then used two dies to make the frame. I opted to not use a window sheet, but to just leave the window 'open'.

I've used two different stamp sets on this card, one is the White Christmas set that I've been showing lately, but the other is a brand new set that will be available to purchase January 6th, from the Occasions Catalog! It is called Sheltering Tree. It is a photopolymer stamp set that has images that can be used year round, and I must say that it coordinates with the White Christmas set perfectly!! Love it! Here is what I mean:
The tree, snowflakes and 'ground' images are from the new set, and the snowman and birdie are from the other!! They are the perfect size for each other!! The sentiments are also from the new set, and am loving the font!!

I have lots to do in the next two days! Finish making Christmas gifts(which I'll share on Monday!), clean the house, color my hair, do a little shopping, in NO particular order!! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I always enjoy visitors!! Have a great and relaxed weekend!!

White Christmas Stamp Set

Today I have a card and video showcasing the adorable White Christmas stamp set! This set is perfect for your Winter cards, and not just Christmas! I think the images are so sweet, especially the snowman and polar bear!

I have also used the Rotary Stamp to make my sentiment, since this set has no winter ones. I hope you enjoy the video, and I chat a bit about my shaky hands and my rigged up tripod! lol

Thanks for having a look today!!

Gold Glimmer Gift Box

Today I have a glittered top gift box to share. This is going to my Mom. The bottom part is Cherry Cobbler card stock, and the top is made from the Gold Glimmer paper. It really dresses it up!

I added a simple tag from the Merry Everything stamp set, and used the matching Note Tag Punch. The ribbon is a retired color, but is the perfect width for this box!

I'm sure Mom will enjoy opening up this pretty box! Thanks for stopping by today!

Roly Poly Santa Punch Art

As promised, I have a video today! And yes, it's another punch art one! :) I got quite a few views and likes from last week's reindeer, so I thought I would do a Santa.

He's quite simple to make, and thought my video would be a lot shorter, but I guess I'm a slow crafter!! LOL Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video!!

Punches Used:
2" Circle
1 3/8" Circle
1" Circle
1/4" Circle
Scallop Oval
Bird Builder

Christmas Stars

The main focal point of today's card uses the Star Framelits from Stampin' Up!. I die cut the larger one with two of the dies, and the smaller with just one. They are both cut from glimmer paper. I wanted the rest of the card to be simple, so I added a smaller piece of the Under the Tree designer paper behind the star, and a simple stamped sentiment backed with two punches. I also added a little twine to make the sentiment look like it was hanging.

Going to try and get a video tutorial out tomorrow. Don't know what I'll do....maybe another punch art. Thanks so much for having a look today!

Hot Chocolate Christmas Mug

Hello, and Happy Monday! The card I'm sharing today was inspired by a challenge at Splitcoast stampers. You were to pick a photo and make something inspired by that. I picked out a mug with a tree on it, and thought it would be cute to make my card a mug shape too!

To get the handle shape, I did some selective die cutting with the Ovals Framelits, only cutting half of the shape onto my card front. Then cut away the rest on your trimmer. I fiddled for awhile with the shape at the top for the 'hot chocolate', and ended up just using an oval cut in half.

The tree stamp and sentiment is from the Festival of Trees photopolymer stamp set. The red bulbs are a separate stamp that fits perfectly over the top.

Stampin' Up!'s sale and joining offer ends tomorrow for anyone interested in getting a steal!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
