If you are hopping along, you should have landed here from the super talented 's Elizabeth Jeanne Thatcher's blog. I'm sure you've enjoyed her projects and are ready to see what I have for you today!
I decided to shake things up a bit and make a shaker card using White Christmas! I absolutely LOVE this stamp set and I'm so happy that they brought it back in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog! I had some fun using my new MFT Zig Zag Square Dies for my window and adhered it as well as the window sheet onto die cut Smoky Slate Cardstock that had been stamped tone on tone with Smoky Slate Ink. I used die cut fun foam to make my shaker window and put some white and silver Doodlebug sequins inside. My background for inside the shaker window was A White Christmas Tree scene and snow flakes that were heat embossed in white onto Soft Sky cardstock. I stamped my snowman onto whisper white cardstock and colored in his carrot nose as well as his hat and scarf and then fussy cut and gluded onto my background. I used some Lawn Fawn Stitched Hill Dies cut onto Whisper White cardstock to layer on for my snow covered hills.
For my second project I made a Gift Card Holder and a Coordinating Mini Treat Bag as packaging for the Gift Card Holder.
I used the Brights Collection Background DSP in Real Red for the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag. I made a belly band out of Smoky Slate and some Red Ribbon from my stash on the belly band as well. I then added some Whisper White Twine and a Brights Collection Green button was tied onto the left front side of the belly band. The gift card holder was made using Little B's Gift Card Holder Die set. The embossed "For You" on the banner was part of the Gift Card Holder Die set as well. I cut it out in Smoky Slate and adhered a belly band of the Real Read Background DSP on it as well. I added a strip of Real Red that was embossed with the For You die. I banner cut the end and adhered it to the front of the card after adding some Whisper White Twine. I then added a Garden Green DSP Tree cut with another of the Little B's dies. I adhered it to the gift card holder with Dimensionals.
