January Birthday's ~ Happy New Year!

Here's the card I made for my Step-Grandson, he's starting off our January Birthday's again this year!

Now all we need to do is get Papa Bob (aka Grandpa) to get it in the mail!  LOL!!!  I got this idea from Freedom in Creating  - Michelle Zindorf

Hope Braylon likes his card!

Step-Granddaughter's Wedding Card

Here's the card I created for my Step-Granddaughter and her husband-to-Be's wedding in January 2013.  I found the idea from Kay Kalthoff at Stamping to Share.  The newly-weds-to-be live in New Hampshire so we aren't going to be able to go to the wedding but our hearts will be with them, that's for sure!

Love the white on white, simple but elegant.  I used the single stamp Love Heart and Real Red Ink and Whisper White and Real Red CS.  I punched two hearts out of the inside layer of the computer generated sentiment and put some of the Silver Glimmer Paper behind.  Added a little more of the Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon to the inside.

Christmas Candy Bars

Here are the candy bars I wrapped and decorated with Stampin' UP! supplies.  Lots of glimmer and Christmas Stamps...

Sorry for the glare, I wrapped them in clear bags.  I used the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP for most of the wrappers and then decorated with lots of Glimmer Paper and attachments from Stampin' UP! Stamp Sets.  The Framelits make it so easy to cut out the designs ....

A Birthday Card

My oldest Step-daughter is having a Birthday tomorrow, here's the card I created for my hubby and I to send to her.....

I used Melon Mambo for the base and also punched a scallop circle  and another piece for the center using the Scallop Edge Punch.  The Happy BirthDAY is from the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set and I used Melon Mambo Ink to stamp it and punched with a 1 3/8" Circle Punch.  The ribbon is Whisper White Grosgrain Stitched and a piece of Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon for the bow. The background piece is Very Vanilla ran through the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  Hope she gets it in time, we mailed it a couple days ago!

Snowmen Tea Lights

I had a previous post with the first little Snowman I created with instructions from Inking Idaho.  Here are the boxes I made (also created and shared by Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho).

Sorry for the shadow.  I used Gumball Green CS for the boxes.  Rose Red Seam Binding and you can't see the sides of the boxes but they're decorated with paper from the Festival of Prints DSP Pack.  The window is punched with the Fancy Label Punch.

I'm with Becky, too bad you can't leave the lights "on", but the batteries would run down!

Christmas In The Heart

Here's a frame I did using the Heart of Christmas Stamp for the sentiment and Scentsational Season for the cup with Candy Cane and Gingerbread Man.

The background paper on the left is Core'dinations Early Espresso CS ran through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, on the right is Core'dinations Cherry Cobbler ran through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder also.  The Heart of Christmas was stamped with Early Espresso and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  The little Gingerbread Man was stamped using Soft Suede and I added 3 little brads.  The cup was stamped with Midnight Muse Ink and the Candy Cane with Real Red Ink.  They were all cut out using the Holiday Collection Framelits.  The saying was cut using Apothecary Accents Framelits and I added some Early Espresso Sponging around the edge and a couple of little Brass Brads.

Christmas will be here before we know it!!!
