Candy Cane Season Cute Gift Cards

Candy Cane Season Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today's project is super  cute and super quick to make.  They are sweet 3" x 3" Gift Cards and matching envelopes stamped with the Candy Cane Season stamps and Candy Cane Builder Punch.  It's getting to be that time of year.  Doesn't the green mixed with the red candy canes remind you of the Grinch?  It's Granny Apple Green and Real Red.  They look fabulous together.


Candy Cane Season Stampin' Up!

The Candy Cane Builder punch punches both the candy cane and the sweet bow.  There is a stamp to ink in the bow outline, but I really enjoyed coloring my bow with my Light Granny Green Stampin' Blend.  Wow, I love to color with my Blends!  When I was a little girls it thrilled me to color with those fantastic big boxes of Crayola Crayons.   Do you remember the thrill of a new big, big box of crayons and its build in crayon sharpener?   I get the same thrill as an adult coloring with my Stampin' Blends.  I guess some things never change.

Hometown Greetings Sparkling Christmas Card


Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies

 Hello Friends,

There's a new toy in my Craft Room and I simply had to play with it.  So, of course, I made a card.  For today's card I decided to pair the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies and the Illuminated Christmas stamps.  These little dies offer so many possibilities.  I feel a Bridge Card Tutorial coming in the near future.

 


Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies

 What's That Sparkle?

  1. Shimmery White Embossing Paste-Doesn't it look like snow shimmering in the moonlight?
  2. Gold Foil Sheets-I placed bits and pieces of Gold Foil Sheets behind my building and houses for extra pop.
  3. Gold Heat Embossing-Continuing with my Gold and White theme, I Heat Embossed my sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder.  All the sentiments for today's Card come from the Illuminated Christmas stamps.


Embossing Paste

 Now about that embossing paste.  It's super easy to use.  Simply spread on a layer of paste and allow to dry.  It's a lot like frosting a cookie or cake.  I used the Shimmery White Embossing Paste to look like glistening snow.



Illuminated Christmas Stampin' Up!

I carried the Wise Men still seek him theme through to the inside of my card.  The gold embossing on the Night of Navy card stock is really striking.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by Stamping Country.

  

Have a fabulous day,

Christmas Pines


Christmas Pines Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

As soon as I saw this week's Freshly Made Sketches, I immediately thought "wreath".  The only question was which wreath.  In the end, I decided to go with my tried and true Christmas Pines stamps and Pretty Pines dies.  These stamps and dies have been around for several years now and they are a must have for my Craft Room.  Plus, I love the smell of pines, they make me think Christmas and happy memories. 

 I'll talk about today's Christmas Card first, but stay tuned, because I'll also share a few blasts from the past made with the Christmas Pines stamps and Pretty Pines dies.

Christmas Pines Stampin' Up!

 The wreath was quite easy to fashion.  I started by heat embossing in Gold my simple joys sentiment on a Cherry Cobbler Circle.  The die-cut pines are quite flexible, so I simply bent and glued layers in a circle around my sentiment.

 
Christmas Pines Stampin' Up!

 I used just a little artistic license using the 2 pine cones and a bundle of mistletoe for the bottom 3 circles on this week's card sketch.  There are several different pines cones in the Pretty Pines dies and the all have lovely texture.  I cut 2 from Early Espresso Card Stock.  The mistletoe was cut from Old Olive Card Stock and the berries are simply Pearl Basic Jewels.  My new Take a Pick Tool made applying them a breeze.
