Winter Memories Diaorama

This is called a diaorama card which was really fun to make with the Winter Memories set from the Holiday catalog.  The colors I used were Whisper White and Marine Mist as well as the paper.  I did use the Illuminate ink pad for some of the snowflakes.  The snowflakes were actually from retired sets.  The accessories I used were the Labels Collection Framelits, the Modern Label Punch, Dimensionals.  I also used the retired Snow Burst Embossing Folder.  I made these for a swap last month and it was my first time making a diaorama card so I can't wait to make more of them using other sets.

Scentsational Season Cocoa Holder


I just love the Scentsational Season stamp set and framelit die.  After January 1, it can no longer be ordered unless Stampin' Up! puts it in their 2013 Catalog.  This idea was cased from another demo, Dawn Olchefske.  The little Merry Christmas tag is a stamp from Petite Pairs and I made the tag by using the Decorative Label Punch.  Isn't it just darling?  I made these for my club members this year for Christmas.  The ink colors used are Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso.  The paper is Very Vanilla, Early Expresso, Crumb Cake and Be of Good Cheer DSP.  The accessories used were the Big Shot, Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, 1/4" Cherry Cobbler Sweater Trim, Rhinestone Jewl, Sticky Strip, Snail Adhesive, Dimensional, Crop-a-Dile, Self Healing Mat, Cocoa Packet and Candy Stick.

Scentsational Gingerbread Season

It's December 1st, so time to start adding some of the Christmas ideas I have been making onto my blog.  This little gingerbread boy is from the Holiday Catalog called "Scentsational Season" and after January 2, 2013, you won't be able to order him unless he appears in the catalog next June.  The set also has a Christmas tree, mug and steam, and a candy cane.  It also has framelit dies to match and I was able to purchase both through a Scentsational Season bundle, a savings of 15%.  The colors I used are Soft Suede for the gingerbread boy on Whisper White cardstock.  His buttons are little brads from the Brights Collection.  I used dimensionals to layer him onto Real Red cardstock cut from a the Labels Collection Framelit die.  I made some of these at Halloween, so used the same pattern I used previously and attached him to a Gumball Green cardstock belly band to slide over the container which uses Real Red cardstock and Be of Good Cheer DSP. 
Inside is a Word Window Punch hole to insert a snack-size Hershey's candy bar.
