Numbers Sneak Peek

My in-laws recently celebrated a very special occasion- their 50th wedding anniversary.  The Number of Years Stamps and coordinating framelits were perfect to make them a special card.

I am enjoying using the glimmer paper with the number dies.  50 years is a golden anniversary- so the gold glimmer paper was just the thing!

The colour scheme I have used includes Perfect Plum, So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizazz.

The Embossing Folder 'Softly Falling' will be continuing into the new Occasions catalogue.

The new stamps and dies used to make this card can be ordered from Jan 5th, when the Occasions catalogue goes live.  

Enjoy the sun and festivities.  Blessings xo

Gift packaging

Hello there.

At this time of year we need quick and simple gift packaging ideas right?  I am enjoying my Stampin' Up supplies for this purpose.  Simple but effective.  Come and see...

I wanted to take a couple of little gifts to a work lunch of hubby's.  So I whipped these up in a flash. 

I love the sentiment 'Have Yourself a very Merry Christmas'.  It comes from the 'Cozy Christmas' set- probably my most used set this season.  It is included in the Year End Sale.

The Tiny Treat Boxes are topped with bows made with the 'Bow Builder' punch.  I used red and gold glimmer paper to make them.  The glimmer paper is a lovely weight and is super sparkly.  It's hard to tell from the photos but I also used a gold ink (retired) with Gorgeous Grunge stamps around the body of the boxes.

Lastly a couple of gift bags using the antlers from 'Wonderland'.  The striped red ribbon is also on special at present.

Have a great weekend.  The last before Christmas- as if you didn't know that!. xo

Jingle all the way

I was inspired by a set of small cards by Kristine McNickle. 
 Some of the products I have used are in the Year End Sale.  I will detail these at the end of the post.
First up:  Silent Night with a touch of Lost Lagoon.
'Merry Everything' with a very neutral, but elegant palate. 
I must say that I LOVE the Wonderland Embellies.  They are stunning IRL and I have nearly used my whole pack.  Yes they are in the sale. :)
Last but not least is 'Jingle all the Way' for a fun child friendly card.

Which one is your favourite?

The items used that are in the New Zealand Year End sale are:  Winter Wonderland Vellum ($12.75), Winter Wonderland Washi tape ($6.45), Winter Wonderland embellishments ($12.75), Jingle all the way stamps ($25.50 clear mount).  The sleigh ride edgelits have sold out already unfortunately.
