Wish Big Gift Box

I made this cute box with the Wood Textures DSP
and some Berry Burst card stock. 
I got the directions from with 
these triangle boxes from this past June. 
To decorate the box, I used the Follow Your Dreams bundle. 
I cut the banner in Soft Suede and added the copper dream catcher 
from the Chase Your Dreams dies.
 I stamped the words Wish & Big from the Follow Your Dreams set 
in Berry on Whisper White and cut them by hand.
I added the pearl and wrapped white twine
 around and finished with a bow. 
The Berry Burst card stock on top used the
 Scalloped Tag Topper punch. 

Enjoy your day!

Pillow Boxes For Christmas

I decorated these kraft pillow boxes for friends to hold gift cards.
I wrapped some Dashing Along DSP around and added the 
Tranquil Tide velvet ribbon. I then cut the solid tree in gold glimmer 
paper and the detailed tree in Tide.
I punched the Cherry Cobbler twigs and placed them 
behind the sentiment stamped from Hung With Care
set in Cherry on the white strip.  
I finished it up with a little gold Wink of Stella painted on the 
tips of the detailed tree.

Hope you have a blessed season!

PP421 & GDP167 A Snowman Christmas

Love this snowman and the Spirited Snowmen set!
I stamped the snowman in Memento Tuxedo Black
on thick Whisper White. 
I colored it with Stampin Blends markers. 
I cut it out with a circle die. 
I also stamped the Pool Party card stock background 
with the same color ink with the snowflakes. 
I cut the snow hill and added the sentiment to the bottom with the 
Real Red sentiment from an old retired set called 
Sassy Salutations. That snowy hill was cut from Whisper White card stock 
and the Into The Woods dies.

FabFri151 Hello Beautiful

Playing along with the sketch challenge over at

I used a new stamp and punch coming in the new 
Occasions/spring catalog in January 2019. 
Butterfly Gala is a beautiful set and with a matching punch
that punches the small and large butterflies, it makes a wonderful bundle.
Oh but the best part is the Sale-a-bration designer paper that I got free!
And this print is purple- Highland Heather! 
Paper is called Botanical Butterfly DSP
I used it to layer on white and then on a Highland Heather
base.  I stamped the butterflies in Memento Tuxedo Black
and punched them with the matching 
punch called Butterfly Duet punch. I colored them with 
my Stampin Blends markers. 
I stamped the sentiment in black.
Love the paper and this bundle!
Well, I love purple and butterflies!

Hope you have a beautiful day and thanks for 
stopping by!

FF022 Snowflake Christmas

Head over to play with the Christmas and/or snowflake

I grabbed my Beautiful Blizzard stamp and 
already had the snowflakes cut from a few months back...cut too many!
I stamped the background stamp on white with Coastal Cabana ink. I also 
stamped the snowflakes in the same color. Oh, and the sentiment which 
is from the Peaceful Poinsettia set. I added the white snowflakes and 
some the white sequins to finish it off.
Hope you have a special day and thanks for stopping by!

CTS299 Christmas Pines Blessings

Playing along with the sketch over at 
Pulled out the Christmas Pines and the Pretty Pines dies
along with the wreath swirl die from Swirly Scribbles dies.
The wreath was cut in white card stock, pines in Old Olive
and some sprigs with a bow in Real Red.
I stamped the pine cones in Crumb Cake and layered a 
detailed stamp over in Early Espresso.  I cut these with matching dies.
I added all this to the plaid paper from Under The Mistletoe DSP.
I place the paper on the Old Olive card stock background and added it 
White base. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and finished 
it off with red rhinestones.

Hope you can play along this week!
Thanks for stopping by!

Jingle Sled Tag

Fun tag for a gift bag or on a box.
I cut the tag with the Scallop Tag Topper 
punch with Pool Party card stock and stamped 
in the same color the border stamp on top and bottom.
I added the white card stock I ran through with the 
Swirls & Curls embossing folder. I put just a little sparkle
glimmer paper on the bottom of the white background.
I cut the sled with the Wood Textures DSP. 
I added a Pool snowflake on it before adding the cute 
white banner stamped in Real Red. I tied on the 
white dotted ribbon to the top of the tag plus 
a little Real Red ribbon.
I really like the pops of red!

Hope you have a lovely week 
and thanks for stopping by!
