Getting A Start on the Christmas Season

I couldn't wait to use this new stamp set of 6 titled "Snow Swirled" (p.36; $24.95) from the Stampin' Up! 2009 Ideabook and Catalog. I used Versa Mark to heat emboss the tree in gold on the inside of the card. The snowflakes in the set were stamped on the front with Bashful Blue Craft Ink and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder from Stampin' Up! To finish the card I stamped the verse on the inside and Season Greetings on the front, then tied it all up with Bashful Blue Taffeta Ribbon.

LNS Challenge #36

The LateNightStampers challenge was to use the Big Shot for a project. I have been wanting to try to make a votive with the Bigz XL Fancy Favor Box, so this was the perfect opportunity to try out this challenge. On the Night of Navy Fancy Favor Box I used the Curly Label punch and double punched with it to make a window and lined the window with vellum which I ran through the Big Shot using the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder. Inside the box is a battery operated tea light. I also used the Sixzzix Embosslit Cherry Blossom (Crushed Curry) and Sweetest Stem (Old Olive), for decorating the outside of the box. The flower center was punched using the Trio Flower punch in Night of Navy.
