Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all and your families!  This card was created for the Belli Challenge and the theme is Christmas.  I love Christmas and the BEST time is when I spend it with my sister.

To create this card I stamped "Snowfall Background" by JustRite® Papercraft onto dark purple with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  My sentiment and image is from "Sparky the Snowman" (retired).  I colored the snowman with Copic markers.  The frame was created using "Opulent Ovals" by Spellbinders® PaperArts.  My finishing touch is a white button snowflake and light purple pearls.

Belli Challenge #184 - Candy

The theme for the Belli Challenge is Candy.  I just got back from my sister's Darsie house in NY.  The temperature there was from 55 to 30 degrees.  I come back to Minnesota and the temperature is from -0 to a warm 16 today!  So this much of hot cocoa will be the best thing ever today to warm me up!

To create this fun gift, purchase a clear mug and add hot cocoa to the bottom of a clear bad.  Insert into mug and next add miniature chocolate chips and crushed peppermint candy canes.  Tie with a red satin ribbon and bow.  The sentiment is a retired JustRite® Papercraft "Something Sweet Set".  The frame was created using JustRite® Papercraft "Nested Madellion Labels".

Christmas Baubles with Stamp Simply!

I am Guest Designing for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I was asked to create something using KaiserCraft's Bauble Album which includes 4 pieces. You can make a photo album, or home decor pieces as I have done. I chose to use old world type papers to evoke a feeling of an old fashioned Christmas. All supplies are listed below and can be found at the store!

A special thank you to Sharon Johnson for allowing me to play with all her fabulous goodies!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store carries a versatile collection of supplies for your papercrafting needs from Spellbinders dies, JustRite Papercraft stamps and other stamps, ribbons of all textures, styles and thicknesses, beautiful papers from a multitude of companies and lots of fabulous embellishments.
