And here is the last of my angel projects.  I absolutely LOVE this little banner and it has been hanging on my mantle to Christmas.  I just looks so nice there!  After making my Spooky Banner, Fall Banner, and Snow Banner I had 3 banner panels left from my original kit.  How perfect was that!

The J and the Y is in Whisper White and I made them using letters in MDS.  These were cut out and added to the frame using double layers of dimensionals.  The angel is made using Whisper White, Blushing Bride and Silver Glimmer.  The snowflakes are stamped using Versamark, Silver Embossed, Vintage Buttons.

JOY Frame

I wanted to make a special project for some people at school so I made two of these.  One is for my former office mate and one is for the teacher I co-taught one of my classes with.  They are both such terrific women!

For the most part this just goes along with the other two projects I have shown already.  I used a print from the Season of Style dsp pack 12 x 6 then added Cherry Cobbler strips to each side (to fill the frame) and strips of Silver Glimmer paper.  The J and the Y is in Whisper White and I made them using letters in MDS.  These were cut out and added to the frame using double layers of dimensionals.  The angel is made using Whisper White, Blushing Bride and Silver Glimmer.  The snowflakes are stamped using Versamark, Silver Embossed, Vintage Buttons.

SUO86CardWelcome to the SUO challenge!  And what a great challenge we have for this time of year…last minute card and gift ideas.  I don’t know about you…but I know I sure could use some last minute ideas…well considering I haven’t even STARTED my Christmas cards yet…EEK!!!

So check out the SUO Design Team to see what they came up with.  I decided to show BOTH a last minute card and matching gift idea.  Honestly…this was a card we did for my World Card Making Day event and since I hadn’t shared it yet and it is a VERY simple card, I decided to use it for the challenge.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Pool Party Snowflake Print – 4 x 5 1/4, add to card front
  • Shimmery White – 2 1/4 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Versamark and Silver Emboss.  Cut out the smallest Festive Flurry framelit.  Round the bottom corners.
  • Add Silver 1/8″ Ribbon to top then add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add Frosted Embellishment to center of cut out snowflake

SUO86FrameI’ve had these little frames sitting around my house FOREVER!!!  I got them at Target and they came 3 in a pack for $2.50.  The inside opening on the frame is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  You really can’t beat that.  I bought them in both white and black and have used them for so many different projects over the years.  It was perfect for a little snowflake frame to go along with the card.  This would not only make a nice Christmas gift but it could be used as a decoration all through the Winter.

Here’s the details:

  • Shimmery White – 4 x 4
  • Pool Party Snowflake print – cut out 2nd to largest snowflake.  Add this panel to the Shimmery White piece using dimensionals.
  • Cut out the 2nd to smallest snowflake from the Silver Glimmer paper.  Add to panel using double dimensionals.
  • Stamp smallest snowflake using Versamark, emboss using Pool Party embossing powder, cut out with the smallest snowflake framelit, add to panel using dimensionals.
  • Add Frosted Embellishment to center of snowflake to finish it off and add panel to frame.

So I hope you enjoyed my last minute projects.  Check out what the rest of the SUO Design Team did for their last minute cards and gifts!
