Last Minute Christmas Gifts

We’ll its busy around the house today getting ready for Christmas but I wanted to share with you a few things quickly.

First I wanted to share a couple of the wonderful cards that my stamping friends have sent me. This first card is from Randy and uses one of our retired stamp sets Scenic Season which she embossed in Silver. Don’t you love the way that Stampin’ Up! items work together! It doesn’t matter if it has been retired for a while or brand new.

Mary made this card using the Bird Builder Punch

And this last card was made by Janie. I love the way that Janie used our Early Espresso Core’dinations paper from the Holiday Catalog. She ran the punched Scallop Oval pieces through the Big Shot first using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and then used our White Emboss Powder to add the “snow” on the cones. Isn’t it great a great technique?

All of them are so great that I’ve also posted some on my facebook page – so you can see more cards there. (Just type in Stamp with Jini and become my friend.)

And now for my gift items – Saturday I shared with you my Peppermint Stick Sugar Scrub gift item that I made for my family and friends. Today I thought I would share with you the matching bags I made to go along with them. I really like the way they turned out and using our wonderful Designer Rosette Die made the rosettes so quick and easy!

And last but not least my husband saw all the goodies I was making and decided that he wanted to give some to his co workers too. Of course I made chocolate tents for the guys and the ladies will receive these cute notepads.

I used our Festival of Prints DSP Stack from the Holiday Catalog to cover them and then used our punches for focal point which includes their initial. I hope the ladies will enjoy them. Here’s a close up.
