Art With Heart November Blog Hop - Boxes and Gift Bags

The Art With Heart Team are back with another inspirational Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Gift Bags and Boxes, just in time for the Christmas gift giving season. 
The bags and boxes featured are all made using current Stampin’ Up! products and any of our wonderful team members are happy to help you with the supplies you will need to reproduce these beautiful projects.

For my lolly gift box I have combined the Yummy Christmas Stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue and..
the Cuckoo Clock dies from the Annual catalogue.

I stamped in Memento ink and die cut two of the gingerbread house images and coloured them with the Blends Markers in Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Real Red, Mint Macron, and So Saffron. 

The plastic bag contains red jelly beans ans the top of the bag is tied with Curly Real Red Ribbon.

I cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 15cm x 7cm. I scored each long side at 1cm and the short side at 5 cm and 15cm. I applied Tear n' Tape to the long sides and sniped the 1cm score lines at the 5cm score lines.

Each of the 1cm sections was attached to the reverse side of each Gingerbread house to form the box.

I thought this cute little box might make a perfect place setting gift on our Christmas table.

Thank you for visiting and don't miss the other amazing projects the Art With Heart ladies have to share with you. Next in line is the very clever Tina Gillespie.

Heart of Christmas - Week 15

Week 15 already! Only a few weeks left to go, I can't believe it's December next week!

The card I have to share with you this week uses the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle and the Shine Bright stamp set.

 I have stamped the Christmas tree in Versamark on Very Vanilla card stock and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder. This panel was the cut out using the Stitched Nested Label dies.

The gold background shapes are Gold Foil cut with one of the Layered Christmas dies. These were adhered with the Tombo glue.
 The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set and was heat embossed in gold on Mint Macron card stock.

On the Cherry Cobbler background I used a combination of Golden Glitz Delicata ink refill and rubbing alcohol in a Stampin' Spritzer to produce the sparkly golden sheen.
The rhinestone on top of the tree was coloured with a Soft Suede Blends Marker.
The Cherry Cobbler background was mounted on Mint Macron card stock and then on to a Thick Very Vanilla card base. I love this card stock for a more sturdy Vanilla base.

Heart of Christmas - Week 14

After a couple of weeks absent, I'm back.
This week I have some wonderful but super quick Christmas cards to show you. These two cards feature the Night Before Christmas 6"x 6" designer series paper.

The DSP panels have been layered on Cherry Cobbler card stock.

This card uses a greeting from the Holly Jolly stamp set and a small strip of Cherry  Cobbler  striped ribbon. The greeting was  cut out using the Everyday Label Punch.

The second card uses a greeting from the lovely Greatest Part of Christmas Hostess set. It also has a strip of Real Red ribbon and a piece of the Real Red Curly Ribbon. This greeting was cut out using the Starburst Punch.

For more Christmas inspiration head to Sharon Davern's blog for a full list of tonight's participants.

Thank you for visiting, please contact me with any questions about my projects or the Stampin' Up! products used.

Happy stamping,
