Be Merry Banner

I love when I get inspired by another piece of work. I was at Big Lots and came across this sign. I knew I had to make a banner. Did you notice the bag in the background. Does it look like one of our stamp sets? I love how Stampin' Up! is in with the upcoming fashion!

Love Never Melts

I am using the Spirited Snowman stamp set. I used some bright colors to go with the Joyous Noel DSP and Early Espresso cardstock. When I thought about designing this card, I researched as to what colors would go with brown tones, and found colors that I would not have imagined. One is fuchsia, I thought that the Dark Lovely Lipstick fit that category. Copper was another color and the Joyous Noel dsp had that color and then Mint. I tried Mint Macaron and I just did not like it. So I went with Granny Apple Green and loved it! I finally added the Light and Dark Highland Heather to finish it off.

Santa's Workshop DSP & Santa's Workshop Memories and More card p

Did you know Gene Autry wrote the song " Here comes Santa Claus." He was in the Macy's Thanksgiving parade in front of Santa. As his float was going by he could hear children saying "Here comes Santa Claus!" and this inspired him to write the song. Today I have made some items using the Santa's Workshop DSP and the Santa's Workshop Memories and More card pack.

Gift Bags

Handmade gift bags are better than a store bought. They are unique one of a kind. I think everyone at Christmas time recycle their bags and gift paper. It is always fun to see it gifted again another year. The large bags I bought at the Dollar General and they were 10 bags for $3.00. I added bows to the handles, a strip of cardstock across the front (5 1/2 inches x 2 3/4) and some dsp. I then added stamped images from Dashing Deer and die cut the deer in silver foil. The second bag I use the sprig punch for the holly and a regular hole punch for the berries. The "merry" is from the now no longer available Festive Farmhouse elements. I die cut the "Christmas" again in silver foil. The smaller two bags are made with one sheet of cardstock. I will post directions for them as soon as I can. With the approaching holidays I will be quite busy.
