Stylin' Stampin' Squad November Blog Hop: Christmas

Thank you so much for joining us for the November Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop! This month our projects focus on Christmas. While we yet have to give thanks this month, some of us are already thinking about sending Christmas cards, what kind of packaging to present gifts in and how we want to deck our halls. On this month’s blog hop we are showcasing many of the Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Holiday Catalog. You will see everything from cards to gift tags to 3-D décor and gift packaging. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the products to create our projects and feel inspired to come up with some great projects of your own.
Remember you can order all of the products showcased from your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

You should have just left stop number 8 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Tonya B. of Stampin' with Tonya.  If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

I absolutely love the Winter Frost product suite in the Holiday Catalog.  My first project is this beautiful Christmas card that uses the Special Season and Christmas Messages stamp sets.  The cardbase is Pool Party and I added a piece of Winter Frost designer series paper that was matted on Island Indigo cardstock (I used the new Envelope Punch Board to corner round both layers).  I stamped the tree in Smoky Slate and used a Two Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to add some bling on the tree.  For the greeting I just inked up the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers so I have all the colors.  This layer is matted with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  The final touch was to add a piece of Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon along with a Bermuda Bay Button and a bow of Island Indigo Baker's Twine.

Of course I had to make a coordinating treat holder and I love these metal tins that are perfect for 12 nuggets (that I wrapped in DSP).  This tin came together really quickly, I added some DSP along the edge of the tin and created a belly band with Island Indigo Textured Cardstock, Winter Frost DSP, and some Whisper White Organza Ribbon.

For the tag I stamped the snowflake from the Festive Flurry stamp set and cut it out with the Big Shot and Festive Flurry Framelits.  I cut the smaller snowflake out of Silver Glimmer Paper.  The greeting is from the new Christmas Tagables Photopolymer Stamp Set and it was punched out with the Artisan Label Punch.  A little Whisper White Baker's twine is perfect to attach the tag to the tin. 
This tin is so cute and they make perfect gifts for neighbors, coworkers, mailman, etc.  Anyone on your list would love to receive it!  I hope you enjoyed this month's blog hop projects.  Remember you can continue on the rest of the blog hop, and if you just started here, don't worry, you can work your way around the full hop.  I love these turned out and I definitely have more on my to do list.
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

  7. You really did a beautiful job of coordinating the card and the tin of chocolates. Love that you added the dazzling diamonds on the tree...I bet it is even more sparkly in person!
