Merry Christmas

Here is one of the 4 designs of Christmas cards inspired by the talented marelle, the colours are Ruby Red & Old Olive on Very Vanilla, I am utilising Carte Postale fom the new Summer Mini alot lately & I think it works well here, this card was a breaze to create & I so enjoyed making them. I sent one to my past & future hostesses, loyal customers & friends, (family got a santa photo of Teya). I wish I had more time to send all of you a card, but we all know how busy we can get this time of the year & for me it has been non-stop since October. I had all intentions of making more, but I have been overwhelmed at how my Stampin' Up! business has grown, & I have you all to thank for that. I am looking forward to spending some quiet & special time with my family over Christmas, but I will be back to creating real soon, with lots more Workshops, Classes & SAS's in the new year. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas & wonderful 2008, enjoy the festive season & keepstamping!

I saw these candy canes on Marelles blog (she has a tutorial) & I thought "what a great idea" for Teya's kindy class instead of cards! once we finished them, I put together a 12x12 treat box & matched the colours of the candy canes, which are; Cranberry Crisp, Marigold Morning & Old Olive, the Holiday Thyme papers also co-ordinate with these colours. Teya can't wait to give them to all her little friends tomorrow.

Treat Box

I couldn't resist adding these to my two pocket tote class held on Saturday.
Holiday Thyme designer series papers (only available'till the 15th December) were used to decorate these very cute & useful little(8x8 inch) box's, perfect for little gifts to take to family & friends when visiting at this time of the year! We also stamped True Thyme, Cranberry Crisp, Bashful Blue & Old Olive Cardstock with the same inks, some with "Sleigh full of Toys" & some with "The Snow Flake Spot" Stamp Sets. The ribbon is from the Spring mini Catalogue- sadly now retired, but I stocked up on a few rolls as these beautifully co-ordinate with the Holiday Thyme Paper.

Carte Postale

My favourite Stamp Set from the Summer Mini Catalogue would have to be Carte Postale, it's beautiful on its own, but add the background stamp, wheel & Designer series paper & there's nothing you can't do.
I used Sage Shadow, Pale Plum & Not Quite Navy papers & inks, I decided to use French Script background stamp instead of French Flair, I dazzled all these cards with Glitter, I just popped a mini glue dot on the brad & dipped into Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, I also embossed glitter with heat & stick powder- click on the picture to enlarge to get a better look.
