Vintage Ornaments !

It's easy to create a unique gift, by modifying store-bought
items with your stamping products.
This is a modified notebook Christmas Gift, made with the Vintage
Ornament Stencils on page 29 of the Definitely Decorative Brochure.

Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy and Champaign Shimmer paint
were simply sponged over the stencils.  Add some Mellow
Moss Taffeta ribbon and the look is complete.

Easel Card

This is a Patterned Pines Easel card!  The card is designed
to "stand up" with something positioned on the bottom portion
to act as a "stopper".  In this case, the "stopper" is a row
of brads.

The card base is Rich Razzleberry with Whisper White panels for the
images.  The accessories include Rich Razzleberry Grosgrain
and the Gold Brads.

Is it Friday yet?

Cigar Box Innerds

Here are 3 little tags I made to go with my cigar box.
You just never know when you need to attach a tag to that
special gift.

These projects are made with Basic Gray, Bashful Blue and Christmas Cocoa Specialty
paper.  The Blue Bird is made with the Big Shot Merry Details Sizzlet.
I really like the small designs on this die, which lend themselves
to a variety of cards, tags and gift projects.  The bird can be
used year-around.

Happy Tuesday

Christmas Cocoa Cigar box

I enjoy making little gift boxes and bags.  It's kind of a
"brain stimulation thing".   I LOVE cigar boxes and the Christmas Cocoa
paper, so decided to combine the 2.

Basically,  I made a box that is 3 1/2 square and 1 inch deep.
I then wrapped a piece of basic gray card stock around the box, scoring it at
2 places at the 'back' of the box.   I attached the  gray taffeta ribbon with
sticky strip and then attached the box to the card stock.  I decorated with
Christmas Cocoa Designer Series paper and the box was done.

My next post will reveal the items I made to put inside the box!
