There IS a feeling of Christmas all over right now, and it has to do with the calendar! Christmas is getting close! And all these Christmas cards I’ve been making are going to be sent out, you can be sure. Would YOU like to receive THIS CARD in the mail from me?? Just leave me a comment today and you will be entered into a drawing to receive this card. If your name is drawn, I will email you for your address!
Today’s card is for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I’ve chosen the diagonal row from bottom left to upper right: heat embossed, patterned paper, and vellum.
I really like this Feeling of Christmas stamp set. It can be used all year round, wreaths are always beautiful! Here I’ve embossed the wreath with gold embossing powder for a holiday bling!
Pretty Pointer: The pretty red ornaments on this card are White Perfect Accents colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend. Isn’t that cool? You can color these White Perfect Accents any color you like!! How versatile is that?
Have you ever stamped on Vellum? It’s easy and adds a nice touch to any card. Here I’ve stamped the branch stamp from this set onto a 3/4″ x 4-1/8″ piece of Vellum. Then I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a Real Red piece of card stock. These elements add interest and make your card fun!!
Important Note—This stamp set is being discontinued on January 2, 2018, and is available now only while supplies last. Don’t miss out on this cute wreath set!

I’m back today with a video tutorial on how to make these quick and easy gift boxes! I showed you one of these darling little boxes the other day on the Pals Blog Hop HERE. I’m personally making a bunch of these for my holiday gifts and I was thinking you might like to make some too! Here’s the video:
The foil paper takes this box from ordinary to FABULOUS! Stampin’ Up! has a nice selection of foil papers (gold, silver, copper), but I personally love this Champagne Foil. And when you run the piece on the top of the box through the Big Shot with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, it really creates a WOW factor!
In addition to the Champagne Foil Box, I’ve also made another box using Cherry Cobbler card stock and panels made from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (4 panels 1-3/4″ x 2-3/4″). The top of this box is a piece of Whisper White card stock cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and embossed with the same embossing folder. AND, you can get this embossing folder FREE from me!
Free Embossing Folder!
Place an order for $75 or more in my online store, and use my Monthly Host Code for November QHJE9JVE, and you will receive from me as your FREE GIFT the Stampin’ Up! Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder used in the box above! This embossing folder will add beautiful texture to all your holiday projects! CLICK HERE to learn more!
It’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and today’s card has a fall theme. I really do love fall, and I love to use fall colors. That’s why I chose the first row across in the challenge! Here’s this week’s board:
Sentiment – check; Fall Colors – check; Twine – check 🙂 And, I added a few leaves from Row 2 just for fun!
Leaves have so many shades. To get leaves to look at all realistic I like to watercolor and combine colors. For the leaves here, I used Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach inks with an Aqua Painter on Shimmery White paper. After the water dried I splattered the paper with Fresh Fig ink. Then the leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.
The sentiment is cut from Cajun Craze card stock using the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies. It sits on a piece of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (love, love!). Underneath I tucked a strip of Fresh Fig card stock punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. And tying it all up in a knot is a thin section of Jute Twine pulled apart from the larger piece of thread.
