JustRite Small Cling

Hello All:

A quick and easy design for you today using just a few supplies.

I made the background using Simple Stories "A Cozy Christmas." This paper pad is gorgeous, I love all of the prints in it.

The sentiment is JustRite's Small Cling "Merry Christmas Ornament," die cut with Spellbinder Standard Circle die and Spellbinder Petite Scallop Circle Die. The center has a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Aged Mahogany sponged upon it. It is popped up with Thermoweb 3D Foam Tape Strips and is accented with Kaisercraft "Lippy Red" Rhinestones and a bow made of May Art's 1/2" Wrinkled ribbon.

All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Check out their $3.95 for all U.S. shipping thru Christmas!

And that is all for today!

NOEL Banner

I wanted to show you the easy NOEL banner that I have just completed to add to my Christmas decor-- I must add that I have always admired and been inspired by Flutter byAtomic Butterfly's (Kelly Lunceford) amazing banners...I could look at them all day!!! Check them out when you are finished here!

I used a fun new die set: Little B die "Pennants." What a great set of can make both triangular pennants as well as the type shown above. Different sizes too! The dies come in a magnetized folder...perfect for storage! To note: the dies actually have a embossed score across the top, which folds down to attach each banner piece to the ribbon or string...fabulous!

The designer paper here is My Mind's Eye "Joyous Paper and Accessories Kit- 12 x 12 Inch." You can also find the "Joyous" in the smaller 6 x 6" size.  I've also used a tag from the MME "Joyous Tags" in the design.

Bling includes: Simple Stories Cozy Christmas Enamel Dots; May Art's 1/2" Wrinkled Ribbon; May Art's 1/4" Ivory Silk Ribbon (banner strung upon); Spellbinder's Layered Poinsettia Dies; and assorted Stamp Simply Lace scraps.

All linked product is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Some close ups:


I hope that you have enjoyed today's project! I had a lot of fun making it up.

Have a great week!

Sleigh Bells Ring!

Once again time for a quick and easy gift tag.

I began by layering two patterns of My Mind's Eye "Sleigh Bells Ring" decorator paper. Such great prints in this pad!

An accent border of MME Sleigh Bells Ring Decorative Tape instructs the recipient not to "open before Christmas!"

Simple Stories "A Cozy Christmas" Enamel Dots add interest, along with May Art's Center Stitch Burlap Ribbon.

As I said, quick and easy!

All product is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

JustRite Mums

I have a very quick post to present today...using JustRite small Cling "Mums."  I colored the mums with Copic Sketch markers then mounted them upon a decorator paper background from Kaisercraft's "Tea Break" pad.

A Spellbinder A2 Scalloped Borders 2 die, cutting both layers, adds interest. 

A Kaisercraft Sparklet in Coral adds bling.

This card would be great for a birthday or thank you...just add your sentiment to the interior of the design.

Peace Love Joy Christmas Tag

I had some scraps lying on my stamping table, so decided to put together a quick Christmas package tag.

I began with some craft cardstock, then layered it up with some of Simple  Stories "Cozy Christmas" decorator that pad...have been enjoying many of the prints!

A border of May Art's 1.5" Wired Burlap with Lace adds some texture, perfect to layer a Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia bloom upon. The bloom has a glitter center "Simple Stories Cozy Christmas Enamel Dot."

The ribbon is May Art's 3/4" Ivory Canvas Print -Peace Love Joy- a fun way to add your sentiment!

Beautiful May Art's 1.5" Ivory Silk Ribbon tops the gift tag.

Holly Berry Sparkle

Loving this 12" X 12" My Minds Eye "Joyous Paper and Accessory Kit." It has a lot of glimmer and gleam, as well as a mix of vintage and up to date prints. Don't be surprised if you see this coming up again soon! All MME Joyous products are HERE.

I used Spellbinders Shapeabilites Die D-Lites in "Holly Twigs and Leaves" with Kaisercraft Rhinestones as berries to nestle in between the leaves. 

A bit more sparkle: May Art's Metallic String Ribbon in green and red.

Flat and Shiny...

Flat, so it's a cinch to mail...shiny, so it has a bit of "extra!"

My wreath image is from JustRite's small cling "Christmas Wreath" also has a Christmas sentiment with the set which can be used for the inside of the card.

I stamped the wreath with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copic Sketch markers. I then used a Spellbinder Standard Circle (large) die to cut it to shape. I obtained the sheen with a Versamark Watermark Pad and Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel UTEE, three layers melted with a heat gun. It adds an extra special touch to a fairly simple design.

The base is made up of layers from "A Cozy Christmas" by Simply Stories designer paper.
