Christmas Stamp-A-Stack

Here are the cards and matching gift bag we will be making at my
Stamp-A-Stack on November 17th. 

 We will be creating a collection of 20 cards (5 each of 4 designs) featuring the Scentsational Season stamp set and matching framelits to cut out each image as shown below. 

Closer photo of the Snow Flurry, Ornament, and Joy cards. 
We will make 5 of each of these.
The ornaments on the Baja Breeze card and hand-made ornament on the gift bag are made from the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set and Holiday Ornaments framelits.

The snowflake card uses the SnowFlurry die cut.  Check out the center!

These ribbon layers on the Joy card seem to be all the rage lately.

A closer look at the ornament on the gift bag. I think I will be making a few more of these for gifts. I've seen them attached to wine bottles too! If you look on SplitCoastStampers you will see tons of these. However, this is a very EASY version with just 5 flat ornament images in the background instead of the 4 sided ones with 2 layers and a rosette in the middle.

 This design can be made pretty quickly, just attach the stamped ornaments to a center circle, add pieces of tulle, the snowflake and a bronze button to top it off! 


StoryBook Friends!

I LOVE little 3x3 cards - and - matching envelopes. 
This stamp set is sooo sweet I thought it would make a nice little set for someone. 
My mother-in-law had surgery recently so I made a set for her.

 Here's a closer look at the cute little animals.

 I used the blender pen with a little ink to add some color. 
With these designs less is more as far as color.

I used Stampin' Up's Simply Scored tool to make the
matching envelopes out of Designer Series Paper.

Tie them all together with a ribbon and it's a perfect little gift!

Ribbon Share

A few weeks ago, I offered a Ribbon Share from Stampin' Up! that included 15 different colors and types of ribbon.  This is an excellent way to get a nice variety without having to buy a full spool of each one. 

Each spool was divided into 5 equal shares and I wrapped them around a piece of white cardboard that I had put through an embossing folder and then stamped on the top.  The linen thread at the top is part of the share too.
