Christmas Blue Ball Jars



I purchased these blue Mason Ball Vintage Style Jars at Kmart and my daughter saw them at Michaels.  They can also be found at Target. It is their 100th Anniversary and I saw some cute samples made by Sandi MacIver and knew I had to make some of them myself.  I used the Festive Flurry stamp and Framelit Bundle #133284 (w) #133285 (c).  I also used the Circle Framelits #130911 and Silver Glimmer Paper #124005.  I put the 3/4" Chevron Ribbon in Island Indigo #131151 around jar rim and added the Silver 1/8" Ribbon #132137.   I stamped a snowflake and attached it to the top with Dimensionals and added the Frosted Finish Embellishment #132150.  I used the stamp set Tags for You #133293 (w) #133294 (c).  I used Tempting Turquoise ink and used the Label Bracket Punch #132153 to punch it out and adhere to the Silver Glimmer Snowflakes.  On the other side, I stamped "A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You' with the Christmas Tagables #134623 Photopolymer stamp set.  I filled it with chocolate, of course!


Best of Snow Frosty

It looks like we are expecting snow this week.  It has been a long time since I've made a snowman outside, but I will stay in where it is warm and make this snowman card instead.  I did this for a swap last month.  It was quick and easy and I love the little Frosty from Best of Snow #134387 (c).  The colors are Island Indigo and Pool Party.  I also used the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder #120902 in the Big Shot using Whisper White card stock and embellished with Rhinestone Basic Jewels #119246.  Frosty is all glitzy with Dazzling Diamonds #102023.

Happy Birthday!


This is a special birthday card I made for a special friend.  Her birthday was in November.  She had given me some glitter gel pens and so I wanted to make a card for her using them.  I also used the Chalk Marker #132133 from the Holiday Catalog.  I used an old clear ruler that Stampin' Up! used to sell so I can see where to draw my lines on the 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" Night of Navy card stock at 3/4" inch apart with the Chalk Marker.  Then I used the glitter gel pens to randomly mark lines too.  I used the 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon #114319.  Silver Embossing Powder was used to make the snowflake on the Night of Navy card stock and cut out with the Festive Flurry Framelit Die #132193 and Festive Flurry (w) #131778; (c) #131781 stamp set.

Happy Birthday Pedal Praise

It is has been a busy month and I have not posted yet for December, so since it is almost over, I'd better post some of my work from the past several months.  This is a card I made with the Pumpkin Pumpkin from August, 2013.  The stamp set is called Pedal Praise and the DSP is called Birthday Basics #130145.  I also used the Thinlets Label Card Die #133479 to make this card as well as using 3/8" Primrose Stitched Satin Ribbon #126844The Artisan Label #130920 and the Deco Labels Collection #130102.
