|Card Base Pop' N Cuts #130099 cuts a card base. It's magnetic, so you can insert the magnetic Pop ‘n Cuts Dress Form Die or Label Pop' N Cuts die cuts inside this base to cut a fun pop-up card. Card base: 4-1/4" x 11". Use with Extended Cutting Pads.|
|Too bad I had this sitting on a red table cloth.............. looks kind of confusing. Tip: Try to focus on the black Pop' N Cuts frame. I added some markers with white sticky strip to the card base. You could actuall add Washi Tape around the outter rim. Anyway, these markers help me line up card stock so I get a precise cut without wasting paper.|
|The three pieces you need to make this cute little box.|
|I added a Santa image from Santa's List and a sentiment from Very Merry Tags. The ribbon is the Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon.|
|This box is decorated with the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack paper. The snowflake embellishment is made with the Festive Flurry Stamp set and matching framelits and a Frosted Finishes embellisment. I've tied the box with a strip of Smokey Slate Chevron Ribbon.|
|I put life savers in this treat box. The others have chocolate covered pretzels and truffles.|
|This treat box is tied with the gorgeous Cherry Cobbler Tulle ribbon which is still available at last check in the Clearance Rack Blitz. It is so awesome to use. The sentiment is from the Warmth and Wonder Hostess Stamp set.|
|Apothecary Framelits Item #127003|
|This cute little stamp set features 7 stamps. It has a 2-step stamp (dots) that stamps on the tree to create ornaments. It also coordinates with the Extra Large Oval Stamp (bird image). This stamp set is part of the Hostess set of stamps in the Holiday Mini and is only available until January 3rd, 2014 when it will be retired.|
|The tree is stamped in Gumball Green, the stars are in Coastal Cabana and the deer is in Early Espesso inks. I used the 2-way glue pen to add lines around the base of the tree and between the deers legs and then sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds, so it looks like snow glistening on the ground. You can't see that in this picture, but if you look closely at the finished tag you will see it. I also added another star and placed small basic rhinestones in each one. |
|Place the wine bottle topper over your bottle of wine and you are done! How easy was that?|
|I used dimensionals between all the layers on the ornament, however because dimensionals won't stick to the glimmer paper when I added a large glue dot on top of the dimensional. Works like a charm. I attached the ribbon to the back of the ornament with tape and then used an additional large snowflake to cover this.|
|The ornament was added to the wine topper with repositionable glue so it can be removed and used as an ornament on the tree.|
|In the past my bulletin board area has looked like this. Usually I just post all the new promos and contact information on it and had some things displayed on the fireplace mantle below it. Not very exciting or interesting.|
So I decided to make my board and display a little more trendy.
|Here's what it looks like today. I've taken away all the "newsy" stuff and created a binder which includes all the information my friends need to know about the latest products and promotions. The revamped bulletin board now displays samples made with some of the latest products like the Bow Big Shotz Die, etc. and 3-dimensional projects on the mantle top. I plan on updating and changing the displays based on the season or celebration.|
In the right hand corner of this picture you will see a collection from The Wetlands stamp set. This is some fabulous Card Candy I received from Laura H.H. Zaraza in a swap at Convention earlier this summer (see previous note on Convention Goodies posted in August).
I've had a lot of comments on this package of card candy since I put it on display. Because of this I'm thinking about doing either a class or if enough interest is generated, a Card Candy club in the spring featuring different stamp sets. If you live in my area in Abbotsford, BC would you be interested in attending such a club or a class? Let me know by adding a comment to this post.
|The card candy above features stamped images from the Wetlands stamp set that are pre-coloured and mounted on cardstock and already for adding to a project whether it be a card or a scrapbook page. This is a really fun way of having materials on hand when you need a fast and easy card. But don't have time to sit down and make it from scratch. Card candy also makes a great gift for friends and fellow stampers. Hint. Hint.|
Another favourite on my board are the bows and gift card holders. These gift card samples are modelled after the one Shelley made at Convention this summer.

Although you wouldn't know it from our current wet weather trend but summer is on its way. We live in the "berry belt" of C...
