Nature Sings, Christmas Pines & More

The Online Extravaganza continues today with Annual Catalog Stamps & Kits and so I thought I’d share some holiday cards made with sets from the Annual Catalog.

This first group uses the Nature Sings stamp set (143653/144406) and contains beautiful nature images so I’ve used it for my guy friends too.

Looking for something a bit more traditional? How about these cards using the Christmas Pines stamp set (142049)?

Or the Hearts Come Home stamp set (145413/145416)?

You know me with snowflakes. LOL! The Snowflake Sentiments set (144817/144820) is filled with great sentiments too and has a wonderful coordinating Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies (144678).

And of  course one of my favorite things – coffee! Here are a couple of cards using the Coffee Cafe stamp set (143677).

I love this set for gifts too!

And today’s final card uses the Ready for Christmas stamp set (144823) and coordinating Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies (144679)

Whew! Which set is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

Snowflake Showcase ends Friday, November 30th

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers

I have been limited with my shopping radius lately – so the Dollar Tree has been a favorite spot to stop and I’ve found sound fun items such as the lemon candy canes and these mints.

The tin is Cherry Cobbler so it was perfect to make these little treats that were inspired by the chap stick holders I shared with you HERE.

Here’s what I came up with

I simply cut the Be Merry Designer Series Paper 3″ x 7″ added a bit of Fast Fuse to each end and wrapped it around the tin. I stamped the sentiment in Garden Green Classic Ink and cut it out using the Stitched Oval Framelits Die. Then I layered the sentiment using a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals onto a Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle and adhered it to the center of the wrap. Finally I grabbed my Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, wrapped it around the tin and tied a bow. I just LOVE the way this ribbon ties!

Voila! finished in under 5 minutes too!!!

While I used these little treats the tin is about the same as an Altoids tin – I just loved the color of the tin. LOL!

And how about some more cards? These stamp sets can all be found in our Annual Catalog
