Christmas Magic



I love the images in the Christmas Magic Stamp Set.  They can be stamped and left alone, or you can color them in a bit like I did.  

I cut a layer of Whisper White Card Stock to place onto my white base.  I stamped my images and then embossed the paper.  Remember to stamp your images first.  I then colored them in a bit, added my snowflake and sentiment for a bit more embellishment and placed this onto my card using Dimensionals.  The snowman and North Pole images had a little blank space between them after I stamped them, so I just took my Basic Black Marker and connected them to make it look like one large single stamp.

Wondrous Wreath



With all of the new Stamps in the Holiday Catalog, I forget about some of last year's sets that are still current and on my shelves.  I made sure to get some of them out so we could make some different cards at my last stamp class for the year.

I embossed my Crumb Cake Card Stock with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, and layered this onto a piece of Real Red Card Stock.  I then cut out my window frame using the Hearth & Home Thinlits and placed this over a piece of Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper.  I stamped and then cut out my wreath and bow using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits and added a Rhinestone and my "Merry Christmas"  for the finishing touches.  

Note:  The Fine Tip Glue Pen and Silicone Craft Sheet work so well together when you want to adhere thin objects.  The craft sheet keeps your work surface from getting sticky and messy and your paper or embellishment won't stick to the craft sheet making it easy to use for any kind of project that needs adhesive.

Alternate Paper Pumpkin Card



When I got my November Paper Pumpkin kit I liked the contents.  Two ink spots, a Christmas stamp set and a lot of materials to make the cards.  I do, however, like to send full sized cards so I altered mine so they would fit in a standard envelope.  I will keep the envelopes that came in the kit for another project, as well as the vellum layer which I didn't use, but will be offering this version as an option for one of the cards at my December Stamp Class.

The white piece that has the scenery on it and all of the cute trees, houses and embellishments came in the kit.  I just added a coordinating layer of Dapper Denim and Pear Pizzazz Card Stock under it and attached all of this to a full size Whisper White Card Base.  

The monthly Paper Pumpkin kits are always full of great surprises, and as you can see they can be altered to fit your own personal style, or you can follow the directions in each kit to finish the project. If you would like to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin you can click the link in the upper left hand column of my blog to sign up.  You can sign up for a one month subscription, or get one, three, or 12 month prepaid subscriptions.

Pyramid Pals "Christmas Tree"



I like to try and come up with new ideas of items to sell at Craft Fairs and to make for my family. When I was looking at the frog I made with the Pyramid Pals Thinlits I saw that I already have a nice base for a Christmas Tree.  I filled it with a small bag of holiday M & M's and decorated the front with some rhinestones, and Gold and Red Dazzling Details.  I punched a star using Silver Glimmer Paper, and added my sentiment to the bottom of the tree.
