How to Make Cheerful "Mistle" Toes Gifts

MIstle "toes" Handmade Gift

Hello Friends,

Are you busy gathering last minute gifts, packaging and baking?  Or are you done and ready for the big day?  Every year my beautiful daughter-in-laws exchange "my favorite thing" gifts and they are graciously include me in the exchange.  This year I'm giving them a gift for their "mistle" toes!  How fun is that!   I found the idea on Pinterest and I'l share the links for the free printables and also the foot scrub recipe which I altered slightly.

But first, allow me to share how I dressed up my gifts and made them my own.  First, I tucked a couple of mistletoe branches which I cut with the Pretty Pines Dies behind my tag.  The Pretty Pines dies really are my go to tool  this time of year.  Then I stamped a cute striped tag with the Tags and Trimmings stamp set.  The Tags and Trimming stamp will no longer be available as of January 2 or While Supplies Last.   I found that the tag die from the Wood Crate Framelits Dies work perfectly for this, but you could also fussy cut your tag.  

Then, I bundled together a pretty nail polish, polish remover and a jar of handmade Foot Scrub in a Gusseted Cellophane Bag and tied everything up with the gorgeous 7/8" Striped Ribbon (also set to retire on January 2 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST).  As always, I have a clickable supply list at the end of the post for your convenience. 

I found the cute "mistle" toe tag on a fun blog called the Idea Room.  She graciously share her free printable tag.  

The recipe for the handmade Lemongrass & Chamomile Foot Scrub plus the free printable tag was shared by One Essential Community.  I didn't have the mica to turn my scrub the pretty blue and my sugar was a little browner.  I substituted Olive Oil for the Avocado Oil.  It really does smell great and chamomile and Lemongrass is such a relaxing and refreshing blend.

Celebrating 12 Beautiful, Cute, Happy Paper Crafts of 2017- I'm taking a little over a week off to spend with my family for the holidays, but I do have a long project filled post for you on December 26 with my 12 plus favorite Paper Craft Projects of 2017.

Also, if you are a Stamping Country Customer, you should have received both your Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs by now.  I'll be contacting each of you after the New Year to make sure that you received yours.  The labeling was a bit confusing on the Sale-a-bration Catalog this year.  Feel free to contact me, if you didn't receive your catalogs and I'll be happy to send you another catalog.

 

Wishing You and Yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,

How to Make This Beautiful Ready For Christmas Card


Ready for Christmas Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

The days till Christmas are ticking down.  What is the most common question that you hear when you are out and about?  Are you Ready For Christmas?  With that in mind,  it seemed appropriate to use the Ready For Christmas Stamp Set.  Today, I'll walk you through How to Make this beautiful Ready For Christmas Card in 10 Easy Steps.


Ready for Christmas Stampin' Up!

The gold and pink color combination may be unexpected and untraditional, but isn't it gorgeous?  Here's the 10 Easy Step on How to Make this beautiful Ready For Christmas Card.

  1. Cut a 5" by 5" Whisper White Card Base.
  2. Layer a 5" x 5" piece of gorgeous gold plaid Year of Cheer Designer Paper.
  3. Cut a 4" x 3-1/2" Whisper White Card Stock and round the 4 corners.
  4. Heat Emboss the tree and "A Wish for Christmas" in White.
  5. Then, sponge around the embossed images with Powder Pink Ink.  This stamping technique is called Emboss Resist.
  6. Layer on a piece of Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon .
  7. Add a Baker's Twine Bow.
  8. Add some shimmery sequins.
  9. Layer a bit of Delicate White Doily and Silver Foil Snowflake along the bottom.
  10. Pop up the whole thing with Stampin' Dimensionals and adhere to the front of your card.

Wish that I would have thought to add a little Wink of Stella too.  It would have added some happy shine.  Wink of Stella is my December Hostess Code Giveaway.  For a complete list of supplies scroll to the bottom of this post.

 

Ready for Christmas Stampin' Up! 

Contrary to its name the Ready for Christmas Stamp set isn't just for Christmas.  Did you see the 4 non-Christmas projects that I made with this set in an earlier Post?  See the 4 Projects along with a Video of them Here.  Even today's card could be more than just a Christmas Card.  I could totally see it as a Happy New Year Card or a Winter Thinking of you card.

Freshly Made Sketches

I did have a little help from Freshly Made Sketches.  This simple sketch was just what I needed to get started on today's card.
