Fill My Stockings, Santa!

One of the displays I was planning on for the Holiday Mini Catalog was a banner of Christmas Stockings made with the Holiday Stocking Bigz L Die fro my fireplace mantle. A fellow demonstrator, Kathie, had already made one and brought it over for me to use. It was too big for my mantle. Kathie made hers for a much larger area but we found a great space for it and hung it up! Thanks so much, Kathie!

I Love Spice Cake!

These were fun cards to make - and so easy with the Big Shot! I used the Fun Flowers XL Bigz Die and the Spice Cake designer series paper and Big Buttons. The greeting is from Sincere Salutations. The background of the flowers was embossed with the Polka Dot embossing folder.

Fall Decorations

I just love how this little pumpkin turned out! I cut 1 1/2 inch strips of Pumpkin Pie card stock and adhered them to a 2 1/2" circle, also Pumpkin Pie with Sticky Strip. The leaf and the stem are made with the Wood Sheets. The leaf is die cut from the Bigz Leaves #2 die and sponged Garden Green Classic ink on it. I drew the stem on the Wood Sheet, cut it out with Craft & Rubber Scissors and sponged it with Soft Suede Classic ink. I bent the bottom and adhered it to the top of the pumpkin with Sticky Strip. The little vines are tiny strips of Soft Suede card stock curled with scissors.

Spooky Boxes

Both of these little boxes were made with the Fancy Favor box XL Die. I wrapped the mummy in some gauze and punched out his eyes with card stock. The center of the eyes were punched from the Red Glimmer Paper.

Frankenstein is made from Lucky Limeade card stock. I die cut and additional 1 inch strip in Basic Black for his hair and used scraps from the negative image for his eyebrows and mouth. The "bolts" on his neck is punched from the Modern Label punch in Rich Razzleberry, cut in half and then cut and folded to form the bolt.
