A Very Merry Christmas

Today i have a really special post to share that i did for a very special friend and neighbor that is moving away this month.  I wanted to make something very bright and cheerful and let her know that i will always remember her during the holidays and all the days hereafter and i think i did it.

For my card I used lots of Becca's new dies to layer a pretty vintage Christmas card.  My inspiration came from that beautiful piece of red metallic paper i found in my stash and as i layered i added a touch of glitter and a bit of glistening ivory paper too.  As always it was really fun to make!!

For this this card i really wanted to bring out all the textures so i added a layer of embossing on the paper too that just slightly peeks out on the edges.  It's always so neat to see how incredible all the dies go together.  Everything on this card is a die so it was nice to be able to make it all match... even the poinsettia's.

And just in case you need a supply list...

A little bit of whimsy

I know that usually i do a post with very victorian styled projects but i do have a totally different side from working at the scrapbook store that i did.  I got to use so many different papers to create displays and one of my favorite lines was Doodlebug.  So having a bunch of those little cuties in front of me i decided to get out my Venise Lace Mini Card/ Booklet Gift Box die and put together a cute gift card box for a friend.  I created this one in white and then cut pieces of patterned paper to decorate the top and sides.  Under the cute little red bird i added a white die cut from the Francesca Label die to make it all pop.  And the cute little buttons and twine on the front just add a fun touch of whimsey to it all.

My favorite part about this die is that i always need a cute little box for something so i can make this in any color or pattern and fill it with fun things to give for gifts.  And i don't have to go out to the store to find one.... love that part so much.

And for my second project we used to make lots of these little paper wrappers for cellophane bags of treats.  They are from a 12x12 piece of paper and you can cut them 4 inches wide or like mine is 4 1/4 so that i can get more of the colors of the prints to stand out.  I just used the Gossamer Knot Ensemble that goes with the box and made a pretty white trellis backround for my Santa and his tree.

And to finish it i punched two holes in the top and tied some Doodlebug twine and added a sticker heart.  And inside is a goodie bag filled with yummy chocolates to give to my friend.  These are great for those little gifts that you want to give to remember those special in your heart!  

Thank you so much for stopping over and hope that you Christmas Holidays are going good!

Your thoughtfulness card

I have one of my favorite cards to share with you today with a brand new die from Becca Feeken's new Chantilly Paper Lace collection called Annabelle's Trouseau Layering Die set.  There were so many gorgeous details in this set i decided to use only solid Bazzill cardstock in a very soft peach for the whole card to really make all the details shine.  And of course a few rhinestones and ribbon to add extra sparkle.

I really love all of Becca's dies but this is one of those special dies where you can make the whole card with the die by cutting 2 pieces of the base and attaching them together at the top.  It's just so pretty.  And I love all the little tiny dots and swirls in the die and the Penny Black stamp i used with swirls really sets it all off.  

Thanks so much for stopping over today... i am in my crafty studio creating lots of fun
things this week for gifts so be sure and stop by again for a bit more holiday inspiration.

Just Knowing you...

I can't believe it's already the start of a new week but i hope that you all had a really nice weekend with your family and friends and maybe even got in a little Christmas shopping.  

Today i have a new card to share that i made this weekend with a fun combination of Becca Feeken's new Chantilly Lace dies.  For this one i used the Bella Rose Lattice die to make the backround base in ivory and then over that i layered that pretty filigree die piece from the Coraline's Chemise layering die set and then i added one of the smallest Breanna's Corset labels to stamp my sentiment on.  It's the perfect mix of beautiful embossed die cuts and they all go so well together. 

The stamp i used is from a new set from Penny Black that i just got and it's fits perfect.  I love the soft colors of the Maja Design paper too and it really gives it a pretty feminine flair to it with all the flowers.  It's always nice to have friends cards on hand to send out when you need them.

Thank you so much for stopping over... enjoy your day!

Gift Boxes for Christmas

Today i am sharing a pretty Christmas gift box that i covered made with dies from Becca Feeken's new die set called "Chantilly Paper Lace".  I love to get the most from my dies so today i combined one from the last release and 2 from this new release called Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame and the Annabelle's Trousseau Layering Frame.  All of them are amazing together but i really had fun creating this sweet box with some of my favorite papers from Maja Designs. 

So to make this you will need the Hemstitch Rectangle for the base in blue.  Then cut just the center of the Bella Rose Lattice die for the lighter snowflake layer.  And on top of that i put just that little edging from the Annabelle's Trousseau layering frame.  These gave the layers a lovely contrast and really made the last center stamped piece stand out.  And since i wanted it to be more Christmas themed I added tiny poinsettia's that i die cut in matching paper and inked around the edges.  And of course lots of pretty rhinestones to make it pretty and magical like the season.

The gorgeous stamp is from a new set of Penny Black christmas stamps and was just perfect to match with the delicate snowflakes in the papers.  I just love when things go together so pretty!!  Can't wait to give this one away to someone special..... 

Have a very wonderful and crafty day!

Keep in touch

Of all the cards that i have made with Becca's new Chantilly Paper Lace dies this is my favorite!  I wanted to make a card with that old fashioned feel of long ago so i chose muted shades of peach and tan and mixed them with an oh so subtle ivory to cut the dies in.  This die set is called 
"Talullah Frill Layering Die and it's also the one i used for the blue box this month.  Isn't it amazing how colors can change the way your projects come out.

Again i can't enough about all the gorgeous details in this die set and how pretty it comes out by adding lots of flowers and pearls to it.  And it's always nice to have a pretty card on hand to send to someone special that you miss talking to.  

Thank you so much for stopping by this week!!
