Cocoa & Mittens

100_8832

Here's another great Christmas card I received in a swap.  It doesn't have a name on it - so I can't give credit...sorry.  I love the texture of the Petals a Plenty embossing folder in the background.  This would make a great gift card holder for Starbucks too!  Gumball Green is the perfect color for Christmas!

Hope your shopping is going good...most of you are probably done by now...me - I'm just getting started this weekend...CRAZY I know!  I love the crowds and watching people "spread" the cheer by yelling at their crying kids at 10pm or snapping at their spouses - it's soooo funny!  Me - I'm in my own little world...just walking along with my santa hat on, smiling, waiting in lines patiently and humming Christmas carols - really ticks people off - LOL!

Vintage Christmas Card

100_8844

Here's a card I designed using the Holiday Ornament Framelit for my focal point.  I love that you can stamp other images on these framelits - other than the ornament stamp set that coordinates with the framelits.

Here's a close up of the ornament with the skates...

Adorable Gift Tag or Card

100_8825

OMG!  This is too stinkin' cute!!!  I just received this card in the mail from Jill Olsen - she ROCKS!!!!

She used the Large Oval Punch to make the little bow - adorable!!!!

100_8822
...
Here's a close up of the bow - just punch a couple ovals and fold them over.  The layers under the rounded ones are made with the large oval punch too - then just cut to look like ribbon ends.  WAAA LAAA!!!

Framed Family Photo

Here's a fabulous gift idea - made by my my downline Sharon Hensen of Fond Du Lac.  This was her exchange gift on Saturday at the TEAM Christmas Party and Shelley Olson was the lucky recipient of her gift.  Who wouldn't like something like this - just insert your family photo and you have a GREAT home decor item!!!

100_8769

 

I love what Sharon did with the embellishments - you can see the Antique Brad, the little key trinket, Baker's Twine, Pearl, Tiny Tags stamp set and coordinating Jewelry Tag Punch and the NEW Small Scallop Punch with Newsprint Designer Paper.  It was the perfect touch of vintage BLING!
