Snowman Candy Holder

Snowman Candy Holder Snowman Candy HolderI had mentioned that I was working on a larger candy bar holder and here it is.  As soon as I saw this large, cute candy bar (the chocolate is actually embossed with the design on the wrapper), I knew I wanted to make a holder for it with my Envelope Punch Board.  It is so easy to make and can be assembled in no time!  The hardest part was figuring out the correct measurements.  I finally pulled out my stamp set “Tag It” (why did I wait so long???) and used this cute Santa Claus.  It was easily cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelits.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Color Me Christmas

Christmas WishesI love this stamp set, Color Me Christmas.  Do you love to color as much as I do?? I find it so relaxing.  Whenever you are going to color in an image using a blender pen or Aqua Painter, you want to use watercolor paper with Staz-On so that your colors won’t run.   I used my Stampin’ Markers and Aqua Painter to color each section.  When using water, you want to be sure that one section is dry before you start a section that will touch it. I used Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine along the top from one side to the other so that it would look as though my stockings are hung up.  The finishing touch was a little bow on each stocking again using the Baker’s Twine.  I attached the bows with glue dots that I compressed to make as small as possible. My sentiment is from the set Joy to the World.   The idea for this card came from Andrea Walford.  I am a member of her Paper Crafter’s Library and I love her ideas.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!

Snowman Jar

Snowman jar side view Snowman jar top Snowman jarToday I have another jar for you!  This time I wrapped a strip of our Season of Style paper around the jar with a piece of 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon in Gumball Green.  The ornament on the front is from a set in the Holiday Catalog called Christmas Collectibles punched out with the Christmas Ornament Punch.  If you purchase these two products together, you save 15%! I love that Stampin’ Up! has so many bundles like this available. I really blinged (I don’t think that is a word) up the top of my jar with Silver Glimmer paper and lots of rhinestones. I love all of the sparkling lights at this time of year so I think this top fits right in!

As I mentioned yesterday, I would love for you to email me a picture of your own jar creation!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
