Hi everyone!
I hope you all have had a blessed Christmas and are still merry and bright through the Holiday.

For this week I have created a handmade gift card and a box to give it in.
It's a completely handmade card with the promise of a girls night out. I've used a 3x4 journaling card from Becky Higgins project life set, but styled it up a bit with products from The Rubber Buggy.

The box is and altered Chocolate box which I just hot glued stuff to - Super fun and easy :) I made a new background by stamping notes on a copy paper.

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth... (The Rubber Buggy)

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

I hope you all are enjoying these times and are not completely stressed out. So please feel free to grab a cup of any beverage of your choice and relax for a few minutes :)

Here is my fav Christmas card of 2013 and it was super easy to make - let me tell you how.

First, All the layers on the background are from Graphic 45, super fab colour scheme - so easy to coordinate. I then die cut a decorative label one, the largest one and stamped my wee stamp in memento tuxedo black. Don't you just love this little cutie - how could you resist? The colouring came together super easy, red, green and some E-numbers and call it done.

To add some sparkle I've sprinkled Martha Stewart super fine glitter in crystal and copper on the bauble. The ribbon across the card is from my stash, but there are plenty of grossgrain or other ribbons in the store for you to choose from.

Embellishment was glued down with hot glue. The pine branches are from a Cheery Lynn die, but in graphic 45 paper. I've hidden the glue underneath a larger flatback. I've also used a flatback on the MFT snowflake that I've placed near the sentiment which is stamped in memento rich cocoa.

Products used from the store:
Graphic 45 paper pad 6x6, solids and patterns 12 days of Christmas
Wee stamp, xmas hamster
Copic markers
Magnolia stamp, A merry Christmas text
Spellbinders decorative labels one
MFT die-namics let it snowflake, the smallest
WOC small pionsettas, white

Thank you for visiting!
I hope you enjoyed :)

Merry Christmas to all!!!

CAS Christmas card

Hi everyone!

I'm loving Maja design's paper and now Kellie has stocked several of her paper pads:)
Hurray for The Rubber Buggy!!!

But I really want to show the paper, so here's what I came up with. The paper is from Maja Design Vintage winter.

I layered the paper, used dies and dry embossing for depth and texture. I don't know the brand of the stamps, but they come in a sheet pre-mounted. If you know by whom, please let me know - but it's probably a Swedish company. It says Christmas greetings on the front and Merry Christmas inside.

I have used a punch by ek success and MFT's decorative doily on the front and MFT sweet stacks inside. On the front I also have used cuttlebugs rough diamond and used tim holtz technique when he stamps on the folder to get a print on the non raised areas. (If you don't understand what technique I'm talking about, please let me know or if you would like a tutorial) All papers have been distressed with Vintage Photo.

Super easy and super fast to put together.

Thank you for visiting!!!
