Season of Cheer for GDP#109

I enjoyed the Global Design Project last week so I decided to give it a go again. This week’s color challenge for the Global Design Project #109 are Gold, Basic Black and Old Olive; fun and fresh colors, just right for this season.

I knew when I saw the Splitcoast tutorial that I would also work it into this color challenge. I really liked the fun fold created by Dawn Olchefske.

Here is the banner that inspired my card:

 

I used Santa’s Sleigh and Watercolor Christmas for my card. I love the bold sentiments of Watercolor Christmas. Check them out here. The bright, bold colors of Merry Little Christmas also fit this challenge to a T. Of course I had to use Gold Embossing, Gold Glimmer Paper and Gold Foil Sheets for some bling. The tree has some Wink of Stella to give it a frosted look.

Here is a view of it standing:

And inside:

 I had a lot of fun combining these two projects. Participating in challenges is a good way to spark your creativity. Give it a try this week. GDP#109

Peace, Joy, Love

I am always hoping for snow at Christmas. Sadly I can’t ever remember it snowing on Christmas Day in Georgia….maybe a few flakes here or there but not REAL snow!

I can satisfy my snow dreams with stamping some snow into my holidays. This card is beyond simple, but I love it anyway. Simple can be just as special as busy and fussy.

 

Do you like snow for the holidays? Or snow any time of the year?? I love snow anytime just so long as it doesn’t last very long.

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping! Stamp some snow today!

Eastern Beauty Note Cards

I have a quick and easy note card for you today. These cards can be used for any occasion, just change out the sentiment. The note cards Stampin’ Up sells are so very thick and have smooth texture. I love the convenience of having a ready cut and scored card base ready to stamp or embellish.

Eastern Beauty has great images….and hundreds of combinations. I used the same design but used different color schemes.

Which one is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Halloween Hopping

Hello my stamping friends. Today I am Halloween Hopping with some talented Stampin’ Up Demonstrators. We are focusing on fast and easy last-minute Halloween treat ideas.

I have three quick treat ideas for you today.

First: An oldie but goodie

Sliding candy bar packaging. You just wrap a candy bar with designer paper; seal the back seam with tear tape. Seal one end (bottom) with tear tape; punch a hole in the top end. Thread ribbon through the holes and slide the candy bar down catching the ribbon. Tie the ribbon off; embellish the candy bar package with Halloween designs.  I used the Large Letters Framelits to spell BOO!

Here it is open. You pull the ribbon and the candy bar comes out.

Second: Five minute treat tags.

These literally took me 5 minutes to create. I used cardstock, scrap designer paper, and Spooky Cat stamp set. Tie with a piece of ribbon to Halloween gummy candy and you have a sweet treat to put on a co-workers desk. Easy-peasy.

Third: Wine for your adult friends.

Our local Aldi always has seasonal wines. I found this Halloween wine and thought it would make an imaginative treat for our neighbors. I have no idea if it tastes good, but it is the thought that counts.  Again I used cardstock, Spooky Cat stamp set and the cat punch. Fast, fun and artistic!

 I hope you enjoy these last-minute ideas for Halloween. Make sure you hop on with the other bloggers. I am sure you will be amazed at their creativity!

Happy Stamping!
