Santa & Rudolph Fries Boxes

When I purchased the 'Fries Box' die some time ago, I new straight away that I would make some cute little Christmas projects with it. You can also see my Easter Bunny Box I made using the same techniques.

These cute boxes make the perfect little gift for a teacher, a work colleague and kids. Fill them up with some yummy treats and you have a unique one of a kind gift for someone.

 





Winter Memories Christmas Card

I purchased several of the Stampin Up digital stamp sets before they retired them, and I'm glad I did. This card was made using the 'Winter Memories' digital stamp set.

I enlarged the skates image and printed it on whisper white, smoky slate, chocolate chip and old olive card stock, then did plenty of fussy cutting and layering. I finished the card off with a Christmas sentiment, some snowflakes (not SU) and rhinestones (not SU).

I made card some time ago, but if I were to do it again, I would use the new 'Stampin Blends' instead of printing on various coloured cardstock and layering it together, which would save a lot more time.





Winter Trees Christmas Cards

Well, it was an extremely busy last couple of months for 2017, and I am way behind on sharing regular posts with you all.....my apologies!

For my next few posts, I will be playing a bit of 'catch up', and will be sharing many Christmas cards and some unique gift boxes.

Below are couple of cards I made using the Hero Arts 'Winter Trees' stamp. Normally I would stick to using Stampin Up products, but I wanted to use some Kaleidacolor inks that I had purchased from a craft show that I recently attended. The 'Winter Trees' stamp was a perfect match for using the new inks.

So lock in the date and come and check out all the wonderful stalls at Etsy Made Local Canberra.

Pretty Pines Christmas Cards

I love the simplicity of these cards and the earthy tones that were used. These cards are very easy to make and you can change the look just by varying the type of bow used.

Santa's Sleigh Christmas Z-fold Card

So Christmas is a little over ten weeks away, so it is definitely time for me to start sharing some Christmas cards, like the amazing one below.

I got my inspiration from Chloe Evans' card that she made a little while back, which is absolutely stunning, so I knew I had to case it. I did make a few subtle changes to the sled and presents and I also added a sentiment to finish the card off.

I had a lot of fun making this card, but it did take quite some time to complete.





Fox Builder Baby Card

I have another card that showcases the versatility of the "Fox Builder Punch" that I wanted to share. I cased the card from Valerie Moody who cased the bear from Nicole Kunzig.

As soon as I saw the cute little bear, I knew I had to make some cute baby cards with it. I did alter my bear by giving him 2 paws/arms, as I felt this was missing and made the bear complete.
