It's about time I shared some of the things I made for the Wilmington SU Quarterly.
First off, here is my 3D item. I love the old fashion Christmas Designer Paper in the holiday catalog (Home for Christmas - pg. 9). If you don't mind "fussy cutting," this paper is great. On the Square Pillow Box below, I stamped snowflakes on the Wild Wasabi box and then wrapped a piece of the DSP (I tore the edge) around the box. Next I stamped the circle with Real Red ink using the Among the Branches stamp set (pg 39). I cut out the little deer from the DSP and adhered him under the red circle. Next was the wooden Snowflake (pg 23). I tied a piece of Linen Thread and adhered it over the snowflake. Don't see it? Well, I forgot to do it on this box so just use your imagination! Inside of each pillow box was a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup!
I just love the Christmas Cuties stamp set (pg 19) and such fun coloring him on this tag. I used the Lost Lagoon Striped Cotton Ribbon (in annual catalog) and stapled it with the sentiment from Holly Jolly Greetings (pg 34) onto my tag. I used the great Lots of Labels Framelits to cut the Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizazz and Whisper White card stock. The added touch is the metallic doily!
I did two tags for the swap, volunteering to be a Swap Angel for the tag swap. I should have plenty of tags this Christmas! For this tag, I layered the Cucumber Crush cardstock over the Real Red. I punched both of them with the Banner Triple Punch. The sentiment is cut out using the Lots of Labels Framelits. I punched out a snowflake for the top and tied the Real Red Pom Pom Trim through the hole.
This card is my favorite! But I won't do this many layers again on a swap card!! The ballerina was hand cut from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set (pg 40). I cut out about 30 of them! (Gave me something to do while watching tv at night!) You can't tell it but there is a clear transparency on top of the ballerina and the Silver Glimmer Paper.
I'll be spending the day tomorrow at the hospital. Sonny is having his other hip replaced tomorrow. Hope everything goes as well as the first one did. We have to be at the hospital at 5:45 AM! Who gets up at that time of day???? Anyway, I better hit the sack!
