Merry Christmas

I like using the 5 petal flower punch to create poinsettias. Simply punch two of them out, distress them and off-set them with a gold glimmer brad in the center. After stamping the leaves, I used a blender pen to fill in the color just a bit.

Stocking Builder Punch


I'm liking this new punch from the Holiday Mini catalog! I couldn't decide which stocking I like more! It's hard to see, but I added some Dazzling Detail to the holly berries. Themini jingle bell adds just the right touch!

Lolly or Rosette?

I'm not sure what these are called - I've heard both Lolly and Rosette. Regardless, they are fun to make and so easy with the Stampin' Up!'a Simply Scored Scoring Tool (item #122334, $29.95). It is on page 7 of the Holiday Mini catalog.



Supplies used: Red Glimmer Paper, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla card stock; Holly Berry Specialty Designer Series Paper and Buttons; Real Red Classic Ink; Red Glitter & 2-Way Glue Pen (for the outer edge of the rosette / lolly); Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine and Mini Jingle Bells; Christmas Greeting stamp set

Love these Big Buttons!


When I first saw these big buttons I really didn't know what I would do with them. But after I started playing with them, I just love them! Our 1 1/4" circle punch fits perfectly on them! This card was one of our Hostess Club projects this month!
