Pink and Black Buffalo Check Note Card

 

This was sent off to a dear friend.

How are your holiday preparations proceeding? The offspring helped decorate the Christmas tree over the weekend. And I printed my wall calendars (3 – 2 for gifts, 1 for here). I still have not completed a holiday card – good thing I have lots of sentiments to choose from because HAPPY NEW YEAR is looking more and more appropriate!

Supplies:  Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Crate Paper Falala, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Wild Wasabi (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Reverse Confetti (holly, berries), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Checked Gift Tags

I allotted my morning time on Wednesday to gift tags, and I got 7 made, along with a note card.

This checked paper is from last year’s Crate Paper Falala pad.

Here are the backs of the tags.

You can see on the middle one there was a rogue dot from some other die cut – I got quite a nice impression.

The red snowflake is one out of the pile I had after finishing my parents’ Christmas cards.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Crate Paper Falala, My Favorite Things Field Day, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (tag), My Favorite Things (outstitched rounded rectangle, snowflake), Reverse Confetti (holly), sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart.

Two Layer Holiday Tags

(click on any image to enlarge)

I invested in a new die set from My Favorite Things called Fold-Up Tags. What is unique with this set is that the top layer dies (3 with different bottom edge cuts) have a score line near the top that lets you fold back the top layer (neatly!) to see what is underneath after the top and bottom layers are glued together.

I used scraps from Crate Paper, Lawn Fawn, and…hmmm…that blue glitter snowflake paper…Recollections, maybe?

On the base layers I stamped “to: from”.

Supplies:  Stamps – Scrapbook.com, paper – Crate Paper FaLaLa, Lawn Fawn, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Recollections glitter (maybe!), Silver Mirror, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart, twine -Offray.

I Need Coffee Note Card

I found this sentiment already stamped in my scrap folder, and thought, “hmmm…will that fit within one of my coffee cup dies??” Yep. And the tan dotted paper is actually from a Christmas paper pad (I get that the white dots are SNOW…but the tan? For Christmas?), but to my eye, it looked like coffee with creamer.

Supplies: Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Crate Paper Falala, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, ink – VersaFine Vintage Sepia, dies – Hero Arts, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Smiling Pineapple Note Card

Who wouldn’t love a cute, smiling pineapple??

I was inspired by some smiling pineapples on the Paper Smooches blog.

The Hero Arts pineapple is not quite so whimsical, but I think she pulls of the smile quite well!
