Can you believe we are already on Day 8 of my Days of Christmas blog posts?!
Amazing how time flies.
This card features the Hostess Stamp set Northern Hearts from the Holiday Mini Catalog. This set's so fun with this fun wreath, snowflakes and a cute little bird image. I love how there are some coordinating items in the mini that go with this set.
Today I have a gift idea for you. How many times have you been invited to a holiday party and needed a hostess gift, or someone shows up, hands you a gift, and you didn't have anything on hand for them?
This gift idea is perfect for situations like that. It's a set of 4 Christmas Cards with matching envelopes, packaged in a sweet little acetate gift box.
Here are the four cards. I didn't photograph the envelopes.
This is the gift box. Cute huh?
Now, do you see that little green Rhinestone in the middle of that scallop piece? No, Stampin' Up! doesn't sell green Rhinestones, we have clear. But, with the magic of Permananet Markers, you can have any color Rhinestones you wish! Stampin' Up! markers will not work for this because they are waterbased and will just wipe off. You need Bic Mark It markers or Sharpie markers.
You just color on top and all around the Rhinestone and viola! You will see me feature our Rhinestones as different colors, I'm going to play with our Pearls and see how they come out! Keep a look out for those posts!
Would you like to win this box set of Christmas Cards? Place an order with me, either on my website, call or email me your order, and you will be entered to win this set. If your order is $50 or more, you'll get two entries! Good luck!!
Thanks for visiting, see you tomorrow!

For today's day of Christmas, I am featuring a new product from our Holiday Mini catalog. It's called Waffle Paper. I'm also giving a peek at the Jolly Holiday DSP in our Idea Book & Catalog.
This card shows the silver waffle paper under the strip of DSP. Isn't it pretty! There's a shiny side and a more dull side to the paper, so you can use the dull side if you don't want it shiny.
This is a gift bag featuring the gold waffle paper. I thought it would look nice as a layer for the image I decided to use on the bag. You can put a small gift, or a cellophane bag with cookies or homemade candy in this. I love how versatile this bag is!
I hope you like the projects in today's post! I know I enjoyed making them!
Happy Holidays, Heather

I'm going to show you a couple of cards. They both feature the super cute Designer Series Paper: Candy Cane Christmas. I think this paper is so fun because it's using non-traditional colors for Christmas. The colors in this DSP are: Baja Breeze, Real Red, Garden Green, and Blushing Bride.
On this first card, I wanted to show you how you can also use a Stampin' wheel as your stamped image. This card is nice and flat so you don't have all that extra postage like you with with brads and buttons! That little touch of ribbon is the perfect accent.
Aren't the images on that wheel pretty? I just love it!
This second card is also using Candy Cane Christmas DSP, but I also used a stamp set called Jolly Bingo Bits. It has 24 little images in the set, perfect for a countdown calendar! Besides the 4 I have on the card , there is a penguin, a jingle bell, a candle, an ornament, a stocking, a snowflake, a candycane, a tree, a reindeer, a snowman, a present, holly, a gingerbread man, a star, a cardinal, mittens, a bell, a candy, and a poinsettia.
See how fun that DSP is?! I also love how simple these cards are. So fast to make and easy to send.
Thank you so much! See you tomorrow! Heather

I'm going to challenge you to see what you can create either with any of the color combos I used or a sketch I used.
Welcome to my Days of Christmas Celebration! We'll have 25 days in all, so I hope you are ready for this!
Today, I've decided to feature a stamp set. This set is from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It's called Tags til Christmas. Not only can you make tags for your gifts, but you can make Christmas cards among other projects.
Here is a card made with the set. I chose the Snowman image from the set, I used a marker to ink it up, because I did not want the "to:/from:" to show, I just wanted the image. I also used a really cute paper in the mini catalog called, Candy Cane Christmas. You'll see more of this paper in future posts. That shimmer you see on the Snowman image, I used our Dazzling Diamonds glitter and 2way glue pen, it's so sparkly!
*I'll posts supplies at the bottom of the post*
This fun project I made is a treat package, or you can use it to wrap something small like earrings, a necklace, or a gift card. I used our Scallop envelope Big Shot die to make the box, with a little alteration. I'll post a tutorial of how to create this later.
Here are four 3x3 gift cards I made. Aren't they so small and cute?! I love little cute things. I've packaged them in a mini brown paper sack with a gorgeous bow. I cut a bit of the top of the bag off, then used my Scallop Border punch to make a fun edge! Isn't that fun?!
How would you like to win the set of four 3x3 cards in the cute brown bag?! Leave a comment on my blog about your favorite Christmas tradition, and I'll draw for you to win. You have until December 1st to post. One entry per person, please.

Here is my third week of Thanksgiving project. Can you believe it?! Time flies.
I've created a card and a matching treat container. I just love the set Day of Gratitude. It's so pretty and it's very versatile. You can use it for a spring card, a Christmas card, anything your imagination can come up with! ( I did case this from another stamper on Splitcoast Stampers, thank goodness us crafters think copying is a form of flattery!)
See what I mean...gorgeous stamp set! I used the rock n' roll technique to create the coloring on the acorn.
My treat container was made using the Candy Wrapper Die from the Holiday Mini. I've got to say, this guy is teenie, but he packs a whollop when it comes to cuteness!
I decided to cut off most of the tabs of the bottom of the candy wrapper so I could make a flat bottom. Perfect for a treat for Thanksgiving guests! Maybe some after dinner mints!
Don't you love the gold embossing on the colored cardstock? That gets a wow every time!
Cardstock: More Mustard (100946), Cajun Craze (119684), Pear Pizzazz (119795), Whisper White (100730), Soft Suede (115318)
I would love to mail a bunch of these to friends/family, but with all those layers and embellishments, the postage would be horrible!
I did some spongeing on the scallop circle. The sentiment strip is on dimensionals. I love the technique of tying the ribbon through the brad...it's fun to do that with fabric! The Vanilla circle was cut using the Circle Scissor plus. I'd like to demonstrate it, I'm trying to get brave enough to try video tutorials!

This will be my last Halloween Post for the year. Awww, I know, right?! But that means we get closer to Christmas! YIPPEE!
I decided to make a treat container for this last post. I used our Candy Wrapper Big Shot Die, embossed it with the Web embossing folder, glittered up a bat that I punched out and covered in glue, added a brad and some ribbon and look what a cute package you get!
I just lo-ove that green glittery bat! GAWGEOUS! Glitter is so messy, but look at the results you get! I altered the Candy Wrapper, I made the bottom flat, and I didn't twist the top, I just closed the flaps together with a Glimmer Brad.
Thanks for visiting today, keep coming back to see the fall projects I have in store for you.
Supplies Cardstock: Basic Black Accessories: Candy Wrapper Big Shot Die, Big Shot, Bitty Bat Punch, Fine Supernova Stampin' Glitter (pack of 5 colors), Raven 1/2" Lace Trim, In Color Glimmer Brads
Today I made a card using our hostess set Birthday Bakery. It has some really cute images in it and some fun sayings.
This image is fun because you can color it, as I did here. Or you can stamp it on the white paper, then stamp again on patterned paper, cut out the bag, glue it on the white, and it's done! Paper peicing is so fun, I think I'm going to have to do a couple of posts featuring it!
