Gift Box Christmas Card

stamped-items-004

I finally finished my personal Christmas cards today.  With all that is going on this time of year I needed something simple and easy.  My inspiration for this card was from a dear friend and fabulous artist, Lesley Retherford.  She sent a card like this to me 2 Christmases ago using Stampin’ Up! products.  I wanted to post the original card also, but I’ve searched and searched my card storages and cannot find it.  😦   It is very easy to make.  I used a piece of patterned cardstock and a coordinating tag from Merry Wishes by The Angel Company.  I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to 4 x 5-1/4 inches, wrapped ribbon around it to look like a bow on a gift package and added a designed tag.  I adhered the layer to a Scarlet cardstock card base.  You should really try this quick and easy card.

Card ingredients:

Stamps:  Trendy Greetings (The Angel Company)

Cardstock:  Merry Wishes, Premium White, Scarlet (The Angel Company)

Ink:  L’Amore Red and Noir Palette Ink

Accessories:  green grosgrain ribbon, Pop Dots

Halloween Candy Tin

Fall is officially here!!! Yahoo!!  I love it… the “not too warm” days and the cool nights.  I always want to kick back and stamp this time of year.  Ok, so I always want to kick back and stamp… any time of year, but I specially love to stamp and scrapbook it in the fall.  I thought I’d kick off the new season with a new website design.  I hope you like the new colors and layout.  Leave a comment to let me know what you think.

I’ve been preparing projects for my Halloween/Fall stamp camp next week so I’ve been designing various Halloween treat containers.  I love this one.  It is a little metal tin from The Angel Company.  I filled it with candy corn and wrapped it with ribbon.  I used a pumpkin sticker from my local discount store to make the tag and a current GWP (Gift With Purchase) stamp from The Angel Company to make the “Halloween” tag.  It was super easy.  It took all of 10 minutes to make.  The tin is 2-1/2 x 1 inches and holds about 2 handfuls of candy.  Perfect treat for your little trick-o-treater… or big trick-o-treater.  They come in a pack of 4 for $5.95… very reasonable.  Click on my TAC website (www.kandy.ismyangel.net) and pick up a few.  They would also be great to use for little Christmas gifts for teachers, class parties, co-workers… the list is endless.

Until next time, Keep Stamping!
