Christmas Gift Cards

I made these Gift Card holders for my adult nieces and nephews.  Great way to give money or a gift card... the card itself is a gift!!

Snowman Ornament

My friend Lilly Ruiz gave me this cute Christmas card along with this adorable Snowman Ornament.  The ornament was made from a glass ball ornament.... so clever!!

Christmas Cards 2013

This was my Christmas card for this year...  I kept it simple, but elegant.  I love the way Very Vanilla looked with Island Indigo and Pool Party.

These are two Christmas cards I received from my friend Laura Davis and Dee Cruz respectfully.  I will be posting other Christmas cards from my stamping friends.

3D Star

Love this 3D star.  I stamped 2 stars and cut them out.  Then I made creases / folds on all the white lines for both stars.  Added glue dots on all 5 points of the star and glued them together.  Added the silver ribbon and of course...  the bling...  always has to have some "bling".  My customers are going to make this in my December class.

Snowman Top Hat...

How cute is this Snowman Top Hat.  I have to thank my friend Lilly Ruiz for this idea... so cute!!  The top part was made using an empty "packing tape roll" (stampers don't throw anything away).  I covered the roll inside and out with black card stock, and adhered to a big circle also cut form black card stock.  Then I sponged white craft ink around the hat to give it a worn look.  Added ribbon, white flower and leaves...  and of course M&Ms... and WALLA!

More from my November Class Projects...

More pictures of the projects form my November class.  Love the way these "Santa T-Pee's" turned out. 

Coaster Ornament

I love when I get to just stamp for fun versus having to stamp and prepare for a class.  I saw this idea on a card on someone's blog (wish I remembered so I could give her credit).  But I decided to make an ornament instead.  I used a chipboard coaster from a restaurant as my background and I punched out 6 hexagon pieces using the SU Hexagon punch and SU Winter Frost DSP.

Congratulations Bar Mitzvah Card..

I made this simple, but elegant card for a Bar Mitzvah we were invited to.  I think it works for the occasion... or any other "congratulatory" occasion.
