3-d Stocking Gift Holder

I'm having so much fun with this new Holiday Stocking Die.  Here is a 3-d stocking I made.  Great to fill with any number of small items.  What a cute way to package a small gift.

You could decorate the stocking with holly berries like in this post
or write the recipient's name on the white cuff.  Or you could leave it like it is if you like a simpler look.

Here is the inside of the stocking.  Basically I took a piece of matching card stock, used my Simply Scored tool to score the bottom and sides and attached between two die cut stockings.

Here's the stocking filled with candy canes.  Though, if I wanted to actually give this filled with candy canes, I think I'd make the box part in the center a little shorter so that the candy canes stick up more.

Thanks for viewing.  If you'd like to get the Holiday Stocking die, click on the Order Online button in the upper right hand corner or contact me directly and I can place your order for you.

Zoo Review Christmas Card

This card uses the polar bear from Zoo Review.  The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations and I can't quite remember which set the snowflakes came from -- Serene Snowflakes possibly.  The base of the card was run through the Big Shot using the Northern Flurry embossing folder.  Then I highlighted some of the snowflakes with Basic Rhinestones.

Ink:  Bashful Blue, Basic Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy

It's A Wrap Candy and Card

I wanted a small gift of candy and a coordinating card, so I used It's A Wrap Holidays and Circle Circus.  The stamps from It's a Wrap Holidays are the perfect size to cover Hershey's Nuggets (and when it comes to candy, you really can't beat chocolate!).

The four wrapped nuggets were loaded into a Stampin' Up small cellophane bag.  I used the Top Note die for the topper and attached it with Sticky Strip.  I stamped the 4 YOU image on another piece of Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the 3/4" circle punch.  I attached the punched circle to the image stamped on the topper with a Stampin' Dimensional, rotating it so that the words were upright.

Ink:  Night of Navy
Cardstock:  Night of Navy, Whisper White
Other:  Card: Silver Brads
Candy:  Cellophane Bags, Top Note die, Hershey's Nuggets

French Foliage and It's A Wrap Holidays

It's a Wrap Holidays is not just for wrapping Hershey's Nuggets -- though the stamps are sized perfectly to do just that.  I used the set, along with French Foliage, to create today's card.

Cardstock:  Naturals Ivory, Soft Suede (textured), More Mustard
Ink:  Soft Suede, More Mustard, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Sahara Sand

French Foliage cards using Simply Scored

Have you seen the new Simply Scored tool?  I love it!  Makes scoring cards, boxes and other 3-d items so easy!  I'll be posting more projects using the awesome tool in the near future.  Today's cards use the Simply Scored to create the look of tiles.

We made the top card at the recent "Share the Wealth" party that I had.  If you missed it, you missed a good time.  Hopefully you can join us at my next event!

The bottom card is a simpler version.  It's cute for a quick notecard, but the twine in the top card really steps it up a notch.  I like the addition of the rain splotches in the top card, too.

Both cards:

Cardstock:  Naturals Ivory, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler
Ink:  More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede
Stamps:  French Foliage

Top Card also uses Hemp Twine and Sahara Sand ink

To create the tile look:  Use the Simply Scored tool to score top layer at 1/2" intervals both vertically and horizontally.  Stamp on the side where the score lines are inverted so that they give the look of the grout lines.

The top card also uses Stampin' Dimensionals to lift up the top layers.

The bottom card also uses the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.
