Chock Full of Cheer Day 5

Hi Stampers!

Hi Everyone!

I'm back with the fourth day of the Chock Full of Cheer projects.  Today's card is based on one that I received in a swap at the Rhode Island Stampin' Up! regional event.  (One of the best benefits of being a demonstrator!!!)  I changed up the colors and some other components to make it a little more my own.

Chock Full of Cheer Day 3

Hi Stampers!

Happy Sunday!  We have been so busy this weekend that I haven't been able to stamp as much as I wanted to, but it's worth it because we are re-doing my bathroom.  Yay!  Maybe I'll post some before and after pics here when we are done.  :-)

Today I'm posting another card from my Chock Full of Cheer class!  This was a fun and easy card to make.  I did show some restraint on the amount of dimensionals I used.  A challenge for me!!!  With less dimension, the card is easier to mail!  

The little dot on the front is from the strip of polka dots that is in the Chock Full of Cheer set.  The 1/2" circle punch works perfectly to punch out individual dots!

Here's the card interior:

Stampin' Supplies:

·       5 ½” x 8 1/2” Cherry Cobbler Cardstock
·       2 1/8” x 1 5/8” (3), 5 ¼” x 4” and 2 ½” x 2” Gumball Green Cardstock
·       1 ½” x 2” (3), 5 ¼” x 4”, and a scrap Very Vanilla Cardstock
·       5 1/8” x 3 7/8” Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper
·       Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso Ink pads
·       Decorative Label punch and ½” Circle punch
·       Candy cane, sentiment, and strip of dots stamps from Chock-Full of Cheer
·       Adhesive, Dimensionals, and Scissors
Very Vanilla A2 envelope

Chock Full of Cheer Day 2

Hi Stampers!

Happy Friday! Are you happy the weekend is here???  I am!  It's been a busy week, and an even busier weekend is ahead.  Tonight we are going to see Robert Irvine (of Restaurant Impossible fame) and tomorrow is our first Rutgers Football game of the year!  Very exciting!!!  I'm still hoping to find some time to stamp.  You should find some time as well!  After all, this Saturday is World Card Making Day!!!!  I think, as loyal stampers, that it is only fair that we celebrate! :-)

Alright, on to today's project!  This is the little favor I made for those who attended my Chock Full of Cheer class a little while back.  I wanted to show them how easy it is to make your own gift tags using that set!  

Then I packaged them in a small cellophane bag and tied it closed with some velvet ribbon (retired item).  How cute!!!

Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Whisper White, Gumball Green
Ink: Real Read, Gumball Green
Punches: Decorative Label, Ornament, Mitten Builder, 1/16" circle, and 1 3/4" Circle
Basic Pearls
Early Espresso Bakers Twine
