Tomorrow morning, I'm having breakfast with the speech-language pathologists for annual holiday get together. I'm their assistant at our schools, and I always make them a little stamping project each Christmas. Some of the sets I used are retired, but it doesn't matter to them since none of them are stampers (unfortunately). However, they do enjoy receiving my stamping projects. The idea and instructions on how to make them came from Chi Chi Allen which is posted on one of my archive posts.

I've been busy this week making some Lip Balm Holders. I purchased the Lip Balms at Jo-Ann Fabric's. They were in a package of 7 for $9.99 and they all had snowmen on them with different flavors. The instructions for the lip balm holders came from Yvette and they were fun to make.

This card is made with the Jumbo "Snow" Wheel from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Collection 2007. I used the Hunter Green ink cartridge on the white cardstock. I also used the Stampin' Up! Wintergreen Designer Series Paper at the top of the card. The set I used is "Merry and Bright" in the Holiday Mini Collection 2007. I was inspired by another demo, Gwen Mangelson, to make this card, but she used a different stamp set. Unfortunately, the Hunter Green ribbon is retired but I really liked it best with this card. The Holiday Mini ends today and I think it's been of my favorite minis.

A few weeks ago, I had a workshop with some of my regular customers. We made a cute little Hershey S'moreman that they just loved especially my friend Julie who loves to collect S'moremen. The idea was inspired by a card created by Zatarat on SCS. I went a step further and added a 49 oz. Hershey's candy bar inserted in a cardstock wrapper.
Stamp Set(s): Cold Play, It’s Snow Time (verse), Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Ink: Basic Black, Only Orange, Close to Cocoa
Cardstock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel
Other: 1 3/8” Square Punch, 1 ¼” Square Punch, Corner Rounder, Word Window Punch, Stamping Sponge, Bone Folder, Scoring Blade
- Cut out Ballet Blue cardstock 3” x 4”. Score cardstock on short side at 1”, then 1 ½”, then 2 ½” and then 3”. Fold on scored lines and use Bone Folder to crease each fold.
- Take the square punches and punch each from Whisper White Cardstock. Round the corners of each square with the Corner Rounder.
- With the Stampin’ Sponge and Close to Cocoa ink pad, sponge edges of rounded squares to give it a toasty look.
- Take the Word Window punch and punch one from the Creamy Caramel cardstock and one from the Chocolate Chip cardstock. Stamp the Creamy Caramel one with Creamy Caramel ink pad with the Itty Bitty Background stamp to make it look like a graham cracker.
- Stamp the snowman face on the small rounded square with Basic Black ink and Only Orange ink pad for the carrot nose.
- Wrap the scored Ballet Blue around a 49 oz. Hershey’s Chocolate Bar and glue in back with Snail Adhesive. Glue S’moreman together on the front with Snail Adhesive as show in above picture.
- Stamp “Let it Snow”. Or stamp “Cold Twigs-Warm Hearts” from It’s Snow Time stamp set. Or put a refrigerator magnet on the back, if you wish.
