Elf Season #3

Had seen the triangle tree boxes on Splitcoast so I made some. More of the pillow boxes were made using the Sizzix Pillow Box die and I also used red foil paper for some of those. The "belly bands" on these boxes are scraps as are the papers for the boxes---everything came from the scrap file box. Made tags for the York Peppermint Patties from scraps also--used a circle and a scallop punch for those. The angel ornament is a fabric yo yo for her face and a square piece of fabric for her body and the rest is a glue gun for application. This is the end of things I am
making for Christmas--rest will be baked items that I will do next week. Ho ho to you and yours.

It's Elf Season . . .

Am busy getting ready for Christmas---made red and green cloth napkins that fold like a Christmas tree. They are two sided so you can fold the tree either way. Also made the candy cane snowman covers. Used SU paper and a stamp from them and used white Stickles for the snow at the base of the snowmen. The bottom little tree is small and made from cloth and mesh fabric yo yos. It has a red bead and a mini red bell at the bottom of the tree. Still creating but almost done... :0) Ho ho!

Delightful Decorations Punch Angel

Saw this card on Splitcoast by Stephanie Luman and HAD to make an angel... The punches used are: 3/4" circle, 1" circle, 1 1/4" circle, 1 3/8" circle, 2 1/2" circle, a large Butterfly punch. and the ornament punch from Stampin' Up for Delightful Decorations. To start with I do not have a large butterfly punch so I used my Martha Stewart heart punch and punched out two hearts from white glitter paper for the wings. I also used another punch--3" for the red circle behind the angel. Since she is singing I used paper with music bars---this holly/berry paper and the red paper are from Hobby Lobby. Used Kraft paper from Paper Trey Ink. The greeting is a stamp from Stampabilities at Hobby Lobby and I used SU Vanilla cardstock for that and the olive ink from StazOn. Pop dots are behind the angel and the greeting piece for dimension. Used pink chalk for her cheeks and a black marker for eyes and mouth.
Cut "v" shapes in her "hair" for bangs.

Three Triangle Trees Card

Card is on Kraft paper from Paper Trey Ink. Used Vanilla paper from Stampin' Up. The dots is paper from Hobby Lobby. I used the Sizzix embossing folder from the set "Dearly and Frost". Since the Sizzix folders emboss deeply this can cause the paper to rip. So when I use Sizzix folders I always emboss two pieces of paper at the same time. This will prevent the rips and you get a smoother embossed impression. I then cut apart the red, green, and white paper and pieced them together and then cut out my triangle trees. The stars are punches I already had. The greeting "be merry" is from Stampin' Up and I used StazOn Blazing Red ink for that and used the SU Modern Label punch for that. The red crystals are from Hobby Lobby. Ribbon is from my stash. I used pop dots behind the biggest tree only for dimension.

Folded Christmas Tree Card

This is a half circle folded tree -- I saw one on Splitcoast by "stampercamper" and I had to try it. I used green and red cardstock from my stash and the white paper is from Walmart. I used the Sizzix Birthday Set #3 embossing folder for the white paper but the Sizzix embosses deep enough to tear/rip the paper. So when I used their folders I always emboss two pieces of paper at a time and this avoids that problem. The greeting is from the holiday set of stamps from Hampton Art that I got from AC Moore. I used StazOn Blazing Red ink on that. The green gingham paper is from Joanns. Did not have the right color "bling" so I used a circle hole puncher and made three circles for the card. Pop dots were used behind the tree for dimension.
