IM101 – Christmas Gleaming

Happy Monday everyone! This week we have a perfect inspiration in time for the holiday!

I LOVED the package idea and of course the holly…

Hmmm…NO white dsp with red polka dots!  No problem – make your own with the end of a pencil eraser!

Here’s the details…

  • Granny Apple Green – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 – stamp dots in Real Red using the end of a pencil eraser, layer onto Real Red – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, tie piece of Real Red 1″ Ruched Ribbon, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Granny Apple Green and Real Red markers, cut out using Stitched Nested Dies, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp holly using Memento Black, color using Granny Apple Green and Real Red Blends, cut out, add to card front using dimensionals

Don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary and see the wonderful project Connie made!

And now for our last collection…

We created a new Gifts of Good Taste Collection with SIX packaging ideas along with our favorite (and easy!) holiday cookie and candy recipes! It is so nice to give special hand-made little gifts to co-workers, neighbors, your mailperson and UPS drivers! We’ve used a variety of Holiday Catalog Stamp Set and Dies for our decorating ideas, but you could mix the packaging up with the stamps and dies you already own…the recipe and package design is what is most important! This Gifts of Good Taste Collection has step-by-step picture tutorials featuring SIX gift packaging ideas using Stampin’ Up! products with corresponding recipes you can quickly make up and give away! See more details here!

Paper: Whisper White, Granny Apple Green, Real Red
Ink: Memento Black, Markers:  Real Red, Granny Apple Green;  BLENDS: Real Red, Granny Apple Green
