Snowman Jar

Here is my week 6 of the 12 Weeks of Christmas.  I am sorry that I have been missing in action and not posting, but I fell at work in October and fractured my left shoulder.  So I have been limited on what I could do with my left arm.  I am doing much better now as my shoulder heals.  So I will be catching up on missing posts.  You will get the 12 posts of Christmas Projects.  

This is a cute and fun jar that I decorated as a snowman.  I thought it would be great to put some tissue paper and a gift card inside.  Great package idea for a small gift.  Also you could put candy in it and give it as a cute "Santa Gift" for the office gifts.  The only stamping on this project is the gift tag.  

Here are the items used in this project:
a small mason jar (purchased at Michaels, Hobby Lobby  or WalMart)
red felt (Michaels or Hobby Lobby)
black sequins (Michaels or Hobby Lobby)
hats (WalMart)
Seasonal Chums Bundle (W #146076 C #146077)

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card

This was one of my favorite cards that we made at the New Catalog luncheon in June.  I like this birthday stamp set / bundle.  There are so many options with this set.  We even did a little water coloring on this card.  For the colors on the top right hand side, we used the water color pencils for the old olive and rich razzleberry.  For the island indgio, we pickup the color from the stamp pad cover, there is no water pencil in this color.  We stamped on the shimmery white card stock and then put the vellum card stock over it.   We also painted over the happy birthday with the wink of stella pin, so it has a nice glimmer over it.

Dragonfly Happy Birthday Card

I wanted to share with you this beautiful birthday card.  I love this dragonfly thinlit and I have had so much fun with it.  We made the background paper by scoring every 3/4" across the card and then turning it and doing the same.  Then you fold on the creases and use the sponge to sponge in the color.  The card looks very elegant in person with the gold foil dragonfly and the ribbon. 

Here is the recipe:
Tin of Cards (#138946 photopolymer) stamp set
Elegant Eggplant (#105126) and  Crumb Cake (#120953) card stock
Gold Foil Sheets (#132622)
Elegant Eggplant (#126969) stamp pad
Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Die (#142749) 
Simply Scorning Tool (#122334)
Stitched Shape Framelit Dies (#145372)
Ribbon- discontinued from Sale-A-Bration

For the background with the scored lines, score every3/4" one way and turn and do the other way.  Then fold down a little on the crease and sponge with elegant eggplant along the creases.  

Remember the hostess code for placing an order in April is #7G73S63.  Then you will receive the FREE card project (s) from me.

Cool Treats Shaker Card

Here is a fun ice cream cone shaker card.  It is a cute birthday card to give to someone special.  It is easy and fun to create.  After putting my card together I realized I didn't have enough of the sprinkle embellishments in the shaker.  So the next one I made, I made sure to have more of the sprinkles.  When I made the frame for the shaker, I used the 2.25" square for the outside square and the next smaller one to cut the inside of the shaker frame.  I put them both on the card stock and ran them through the big shot at the same time.
