Snowmen gift tags

I worked assembly line style to create multiple gift tags with a snowman theme. Lots of fun and I have a pretty good head start on my holiday tag making with this session. I love to give bunches of these to my sister for their kids and grandkids. A mix of supplies were used: Stampin' Up! Real Red, Whisper White, Garden Green, and Bashful Blue card stocks, new Sweet Home (holiday mini) dsp. Hero Arts/Sizzix snowman and matching dies for the other design. Various twines for tying.

Bow Die Pumpkin

I made a pumpkin out of the Marianne bow die and some embellishments from Hobby Lobby. I love how this turned out!
The second picture features the "felted cardstock" technique and uses a paper napkin. There is a great tutorial over on SCS for this, it is really quite simple. So easy in fact that I went over to Pier1 to stock up on some more holiday napkin designs!

More Christmas cards!

For the pink Christmas challenge at Splitcoast Falliday Fest, I used the new October Christmas kit of the Month Snow Globe (with coordinating dies). The paper is Stampin' Up Perfectly Artistic, embossing folder us a Cuttlebug one. 

I love this beautiful Christmas Victorian house, an old one from PSX. I want to live in it. I embossed the image in silver and colored in markers. Added Stickles Star Dust, and two different chunky SU white glitters. Embossed with an SU folder and cut a label shape out of card front for window.
Popped this up on dimensionals.

Another new set from Hero Arts is this Coffee Cup tags. Love this one and it is perfect for the many Starbucks gift cards I give during the holidays. Christmas dsp by Teresa Collins, cardstock Cherry Cobbler.

Patriotic Thank You

A patriotic thank you card to go to Operation Quiet Comfort, a card drive and challenge over at Splitcoast. Stampin' Up! star and sentiment, paper by Teresa Collins, card stock is Night of Navy.

Starry Night in Seattle

I started with wet watercolor paper and mixed in some blues and greens. Dried. Stamped the Starry Night stamp onto this but it did not take at all because the paper had so much texture to it. I could kind of see where the circular parts of the night sky were so I highlighted them with white craft ink first and then shaded them in with yellow and orange chalk pastels.
The Space Needle die is by Savvy, watercolor paper is Daniel Smith, SU chalk pastels and Just Believe sentiment, mini SU silver brads, card stocks of Not Quite Navy and Basic Black. Starry Night by Technique Junkies.

Cable Knit Sweater

I was trying to make a twist gate fold and scored in the wrong place, ended up with what looked like a sweater. So I just rolled with it and embossed the whole thing with the new Stampin' Up! cable knit folder. Added a slide out tag with a sentiment stamped in Basic Gray and some snow flakes embossed with silver tinsel embossing powder. Embellished with a large half pearl and white fibers. You could very easily attach a gift card to this

Ornament Garland

More cards and projects for the Falliday challenges at SCS, I don't know how much longer I can keep up multiple ones each day! The first card uses House Mouse "Sitting in the Rain" and is perfect for the kind of day we are having here. Was in my pajamas for most of it!

The second was a great tutorial for the ornament garland which is much easier than I thought it would be. Uses all Stampin' Up! supplies, some retred.
