Christmas Tissue Box Holder

Did you see the cute tissue box holder tutorial that was posted on Splitcoast Stampers last week .. here's my try at it!  I created a Christmas Tissue Box Holder using Real Red CS for the base, Candy Cane Christmas DSP for the layered panels and the pointsettas and "A Merry Christmas" stamp from the Bells and Boughs Stamp Set.  I sponged all the edges with Early Espresso Classic Ink and added some of the tiny pearls from the Basic Pearls collection to the centers of the flowers. Hope you like it?

Sweet Treats

My Sis' Judy made one of these last week and shared with me.  Her's was a tad different, but not much.  The Matchbox cover is made with Clear Shet so you can see the Nuggets wrapped inside.  I used the same paper that Judy did, Autumn Spice DSP, I love the thickness, holds it's shape well when making 3D items.  The labels were sponged with Early Espresso Classic Ink and the sweet treats from Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set was also stamped with the same color on Very Vanilla CS.  The top label was punched with Old Olive CS while the other was the Autumn Spice DSP.  The belly band is Pear Pizzazz Stitched Poly Ribbon.  Thanks for the great idea Judy!

Fresh Apples ~ Happy Birthday

I love this little pick-up.  I saw a card that Dawn did on her blog  Dawn's Stamping Thoughts  and used that as my idea for making this one.  Her's is done with a little darker colors and different ribbon, but basically they're the same.  I used Countryside for the pick-up truck, stamped with Staz-On Black Ink and colored with colored pencils using the blender pen.  The card base is Soft Suede and then I ran the next layer of Crumb Cake through the Finial Press Embossing Folder.  I layered the little truck on another piece of Soft Suede, punched the corners with the Ticket Corner Punch and sponged with Soft Suede Ink.  The Happy Birthday is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set stamped in Soft Suede on Water Color Paper.  The Brads are from Glimmer Basics Set.  I used some Victorian Ribbon and the newspaper looking layer is from Newsprint DSP.  I punched the Happy Birthday with the Word Window Punch, sponged it with Soft Suede and layered onto Soft Suede Paper punched from the Modern Label Punch.

A Friend's Birthday

A friend is having her Birthday this week so I created a floral arrangement for her and a Birthday Card to go with it.

Hope she likes them!  The card base is Chocolate Chip and a layer of Autumn Spice DSP.   The stamped flower on water color paper is from the Every Moment Stamp Set and the Birthday Wishes is from the Watercolor Trio Stamp Set.  I sponged the edges with Early Espresso and punched the Birthday Wishes with the Small Oval Punch and layered onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie CS punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. I did the corners with the Ticket Corner Punch and added some flat back pearls.
