A Little Treat

Do you LOVE my new ‘winter’ look?  I do!  Julie (webics designs) designed THREE looks for my blog when I did my big blog redesign.  I LOVE pink snowflakes so we used that for the inspiration for this look.  I love that it is the same design as my fall one but fresh and different for winter!   If you are looking for a fresh look for your blog…visit Julie!

A couple weeks back for one of my Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions projects, I shared a cute little treat holder for a single Ghiradelli Chocolate.  I had some questions about how I made it so I decided to make another one and make a quick little video to show just how easy these are to make.

To learn how to make this, check out my video…

No Peeking

Happy 1st Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge in December!  We have a fun sketch challenge for you this week to take away some of the stress from all the holiday ‘stuff’!

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler.  I took a piece of the polka paper from the Be of Good Cheer pack, layered onto Gumball Green then onto the card front.  I added two strips of the dsp (same pack), cut out a Very Vanilla window label, sponged around the edges in Cherry Cobbler than added to the card front using dimensionals.  The tree is stamped in Gumball Green, Early Espresso, cut out, added to frame and Champagne Glimmer star (Merry Mini punch pack).  Penguin is Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, cut out and added using dimensionals.  Finally greeting stamped (Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler) on Wild Wasabi, cut into a banner and added to card front.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day today!  Me…well, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel for school!  I am done next week!  WOOO HOOO!!!  (Oh course I have tons of work I need to get done during my 2 week break but I am soooo looking forward to a break…and maybe get some STAMPIN’! in!)

Speaking of stamping…I haven’t had a chance to do any thing week but I wanted to share a card I did last month for the SCS Creative Crew.  I realized I didn’t share this fun sparkly CAS card!  Here’s some quick details…

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and pierced two ornaments on there (okay…you might need to click on the picture to see this a little easier!  It does look cool!)  Any way, I used the ornament framelits to cut an ornament out of red glimmer paper, punch a 1 1/4″ silver glimmer scallop circle then stamped the Merry Christmas in Versamark, silver embossed, punched with 3/4″ Circle Punch and added using a dimensional.  The ornament is added to the panel using dimensionals. I made a ‘bow’ (click tutorial link above to access this) using Whisper White Organza Ribbon and a Silver Glimmer Brad and added to the panel.  The panel is added to the card front using dimensionals.

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season so far!  When it comes to holiday cards, my very favorite color combination EVER is simple…white/silver.  Yep…that really just does it for me!  The CAS challenge on SCS is a fabulous sketch challenge.  The sketch was actually a square but when I decided to use this tree I needed to go with a regular sized card.  This is one simple card!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I used the Delicate Designs Embossing folder (sort of looks like snowflakes) for a little interest in the background.  I made a notch in the top and wrapped around a piece of Whisper White Organza ribbon…the end are on the front and hidden behind the tree.  Next I embossed the loopy tree with Silver embossing powder on a piece of Whisper White.  I added this is a strip of Silver Glimmer.  Next I made a ‘bow’ (click the tutorial link above to see how I make my bows) using White Organza and Basic Glimmer Brads.  I added this to the strip then added the tree/silver strip to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped embossed the greeting also in silver, cut into a banner and added using dimensionals and glue dots.  I finished things off with a Silver Glimmer star on the top of the tree!
