More Christmas Cards

So I have been extremely busy reorganising my craft area now that I have had the window added. I will post some photos soon. It has been so wonderful having so much space and light.

I have done another couple of cards.

The first one is made using the Solemn Stillness and many Merry Messages stamp sets.
The card used is Purely Pomegranate and Whisper White. I also used Holiday Harmony DSP. The ribbon is the Purely Pomegranate double stitched ribbon.

The second card is using the Season Of Joy stamp set.
Again I used the Purely Pomegranate (I love this colour!!!) and whisper white card. The ribbon is a double layer of Burghundy and Gold. I used Crystal Effects on the top flower and a gold brad.

My son is so excited he has now asked me to make cards for his entire class!!! I think I will make little Love Note cards for them and will post them when I am done.

Christmas Cards

Well I have managed to make a couple of Christmas cards so far but will hopefully have heaps more done by the end of the weekend.

The first one is using the Crazy for Christmas stamp set. I love these trees. They are so cute. I coloured them in using the Stampin' Pastels and Blender Pens.

The cardstock used: Confetti White, Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou and Whisper White

I mixed some of the Dazzling Diamonds glitter in with clear Emboss Powder and stamped a snowflake all over the Confetti card using Versamark and then stamped the greeting (from Many Merry Messages set) using Purely Pomegranate ink and then used Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon to finish it off...

I will have to scan the second card and then I will post it.

World Teacher's Day

I know I am posting this a bit late but Friday week ago (31st October) was World Teachers Day. So I made these Mini Pizza Boxes filled with homemade Caramel Fudge. I saw the idea for the mini pizza boxes on Splitcoast Stampers and thought they were a fantastic gift idea. I believe the original design came from Jen del Muro (I don't have a link for her sorry!!)

Since Josh has two teachers I made two boxes and put their initial on it. They just loved them.

The box was made using Pixie Pink card and I stamped the box with one of the Boho Background stamps using Pixie Pink ink. I then made a band using Close to Cocoa card and pink ribbon. To do the monogram I punched Mellow Moss with the Scallop punch and Pixie Pink with the circle punch.
