Christmas Tree

Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and Designer Series Paper Letters to Santa were used to create Christmas gifts to place under the Christmas Tree.  The Christmas Tree is by Twiddleybitz.  Stampin' Up! rhinestones were added for bling.  The pot of the Christmas Tree is designed to display photos.  Dazzling Diamonds glitter highlights the tips of the Christmas Tree but is hard to see in the photo.

Christmas Canvas

This took abit of time gold embossing stamped images, sponging and embossing cardstock then attaching the pieces in some kind of order on the canvas.  But I'd do it all again.  I used a combination of Stampin' Up! Christmas stamp sets - Dasher, Season of Joy, Tree trimmings, as well as the Mocha Morning, Letters to Santa and Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper.

Card Kit

" Christmas in a tin"
The Santa from the Designer Series Paper Letters to Santa fitted just right on the front of this DVD tin containing gift tags and Christmas cards.  The tin can easily be used for a Christmas gift after the cards have been sent and tags used.
Here's the inside, lined and fitted with two inserts to hold the Christmas tags and Christmas cards.  The stamp set Merry and Type was stamped with Early Espresso and coloured with Stampin' Write markers after embossing the front half of the card.  Cherry Cobbler seam binding was attached to the side front.

The new Bigz Die Two Tags created the tags, making Christmas gift giving quick and easy.

Designer wear

The Designer Series Paper Mocha Morning could only be the 'fabric' of choice for this outfit. The hat has been created from the Designer Fabric Timeless Portrait die cut using the Bigz L die Fun Flowers.    The black pattern on the designer series paper is black flocking which gives texture to the skirt. I enjoyed creating the outfit though it evolved as each piece was attached.  Kraft seam binding, Black Satin ribbon and Very Vanilla grosgrain created trims and ruffles on the dress.

Inspired by the marlequin, I created a small box of gift cards below, using the Established Elegance Stamp set.  It's a vintage stamp set with endless possbilities for creations.
