Note Holder Stocking Stuffers

This is a Post It note holder that is great as a stocking stuffer gift.


This one was made using an acrylic picture frame as a stand.  I inserted a stamped and colored piece of cardstock and embellished with tulle, ribbon, gem and a flower.   The background stamp is perfect when you don't have the paper on hand. This is included with the Unity Stamp Company's Friends With Flair projects.

Tools used include:  Unity Stamp Co Leopard Logic stamp, pen, photo frame, ribbon, flower, adhesive gem, Ranger distress marker and brown tulle.

Thanks for visiting. Have a wonderful day.

Gobble 'til You Wobble Turkey

Here is another Thanksgiving Fall themed card featuring a fun little turkey.  I love his sign.


Front sentiment:  Gobble 'til you wobble.

Inside sentiment:  Happy Thanksgiving.

The Thanksgiving theme was inspired by Miss Gloria's designer challenge at My Creative Time.  I used lots of MCT stamps and dies and picked vibrant Autumn colors to showcase them.  The turkey is colored in watercolors and trimmed with a doily, ribbon and leaves.  The accents were made from MCT stitched doily and leaf dies.

Tools used include:
From My Creative Time ~ Stitched Doily  Die, All Around Holidays leaf die, Piles of Smiles and Small Talk.

Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.

The Greatest Gift

I am working on new Christmas cards and wanted to start with this one.  I love this so much.


Front sentiment:  The greatest gift.

Inside sentiment:  May the miracle of Christmas shine brightly on you.

This one features baby  Jesus on top of presents, as the greatest gift.  It is embossed with swirls and snowflakes, colored in watercolors and is trimmed in damask and lace.

The colors were inspired by the Unity Stamp Company {be inspired} October / November 2013 color challenge.  It also works with the sketch challenge, I think. Also, included with their  FWF projects.

Tools used include:
Unity Stamp Co The greatest gift is baby Jesus itty bitty and ... everything Christmas, embossing folder, lace, glitter glue, Ranger ink, Canson watercolor paper.

There is still time to enter the raffle drawing from lots of sponsors, including me.  You can enter on that post.  (Ended.)

Have a fabulous day.
