Season's Greeting Gift Card Holder

Here's another gift card holder I made using a retired stamp set. Still using up my Jolly Holiday paper scraps and the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive color combo.
Here's a closeup. I had to make these pretty flat so I could mail them easily.
Have you recovered from the big shopping weekend yet?

French Foliage

A little break from Christmas tag posts since I'm still in a turkey coma! I made this 3x3 card using the French Foliage stamp set. I haven't really tried out the vintage/weathered look before, but I think this one came out pretty good. I think the linen thread helps complete the look.
I used the "rock and roll" technique on the leaves and I also sponged more color to the edges and over the top of everything.
Hope you're having a great weekend! Have you been to the malls yet? No midnight shopping for me - I need my beauty sleep! Hahaha.

Happy Turkey Day!

I saw this treat cup turkey on Julie's Stamping Spot and knew I had to CASE it!! Aren't these so cute?!! Mine are for little kids who only care about getting to the candy, so I didn't make mine a full card like Julie did.

I used the scallop oval punch, then used embossing folders to give the "feathers" some texture.
Happy Thanksgiving!

A Very Merry Christmas

I participated in Kyoko's tag swap this month for the first time. My swap partner is June. This month's swap is for November and December.

These tags were made using a retired stamp set and the Two Tags die. I also used the scallop square punch.
Here's a closeup so you can see the bling I added.
I also made these tags using a tag die and the ornament punch with a retired stamp set.
I also used the Versamark with sparkles in it to stamp the snowflakes for the background.
These are the tags that June sent to me. She did a great job with coloring all the tags.
Today is my "Friday" - no work for the rest of the week! Yay!

Delightful Decorations

I used the Delightful Decorations stamp set for the front and Fabulous Phrases for the inside. I also used the Two Tags die and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon boarder punch on the front.
Here's a closeup of the tag. I popped up the Merry Christmas with a dimensional.
Are you ready for some turkey!?!

"Do Not Open" Tag

Here's a pretty simple tag, but I still like it. I'm really liking the Two Tags die!
I popped up the words with dimensionals.
I'm still on my tag kick. Stay tuned for another tag tomorrow!

More Tags

I made these tags as self adhesive tags rather than ones that you tie on. The frame is from the Matchbox Messages set and the sentiment is from Short & Sweet. I added on some red glitter glue for embellishment.
Here's a closeup of one of the tags.
Happy Wednesday!

Santa Gift Card Holders

I made these Santa gift card holders using the punch art Santa and using the gift card pattern that I got from Regional Swaps. I don't know who gave those two items to me, but they're such cute ideas I had to case them!
Here's the closeup of the Santa punch art.
And here's the gift card holder when it's open.
I'm really getting a ton of crafting in these days, it's been great! I think I'll be all set for Christmas by the end of the month - whoohoo!

Santa Candy Wrapper

I've been playing around with the Candy Wrapper Die and came up with this idea. Made a few version of this till I finally got it looking like a Santa.
Here's a side view.
I think it came out pretty cute.

Sending Love Birthday

My friend's daughter's birthday is tomorrow. I made her this card using the Sending Love (retired) paper. The sentiment is from the Perfect Punches stamp set.
I used a mini square envelope so I could tuck a little gift inside.
Another idea I got from Regionals was using the Eyelet Boarder punch to make that design on the left.

Another Christmas Card

I still haven't decided on a Christmas card design for us to send out this year. Here's another card that I made. I really want to incorporate the snowflake theme somehow. (Sorry for the dark picture.)I like how the modern label punch fits into the decorative label punch. (A great idea I got from my swaps!)
Have a great weekend!!

Christmas Sticky Notes

I made some Christmas sticky note holders. I used the Jolly Holiday DSP and the sentiment is from Perfect Punches stamp set. I also used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon boarder punch.
Here's a close-up.
Each one has a different sticky note design, but they're holiday themed.
Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Bakery

I made this birthday card using the level 1 hostess set Birthday Bakery, the Elegant Soiree designer paper and Elegant Lines embossing folder. I love the color palate of the designer paper and I just can't get enough of the Birthday Bakery set!
Here's a close-up of the embossing.
Hope you had a great weekend!! Can you believe it's NOVEMBER already?!
