TODAY IS THE DAY!
Welcome to our Release Party Blog Hop!
The new stamps and dies are as follows:
The entire Paper Sweeties team has gorgeous inspiration to share with you today! Here is what I created:
This sweet red card uses the NEW "Merry Little Christmas" stamp set:
I stamped this lovely sentiment and a snowflake to top it on a circle die cut using watermark ink and then embossed it with red embossing powder! I then glued two additional circle die cuts to the back of it for additional dimension before adding it to my prepared card base. I edged the circle and the square panels with some glitter for a little Christmas sparkle!
Then I made a sweet coordinating treat basket with some lovely peppermint candies!
I started with a clear cello bag and added the peppermint candies to it. Then I tied the opening with some red satin cording and added a sweet scalloped tag from the "Home Tweet Home" stamp set with the sentiment "Holiday Treats" which is from the NEW "Baked with Love" stamp set.
The basket was created with two basket die cuts from the new "Basket Sweet Cuts" and a piece of cardstock 5-1/2 inches long x 2-1/4 inches wide. Score the long side at 1-1/2 inches from each end. Score the narrow side at 1/4 inch from each end. Fold all score lines in and then cut small triangles at the 1 1/2 folds to create your basket. Then you can use glue or score tape to assemble your basket-box.
I decorated the front of my box with some gingham paper and a sweet peppermint candy made with the peppermint stamp in the NEW "Baked with Love" stamp set. I wrapped it in cellophane and tied two pieces of embroidery thread around each end to form a candy. I think these would be sweet at a Christmas dinner table at each place setting. An after dinner mint is always such a pleasure!
I then went on to create some gift tags using the NEW "Merry Little Christmas" stamps and sweet cuts sets once again. I also used the tree die from the previously released "Merry and Bright" sweet cuts:
After stamping the "Have a Very Merry Little Christmas" sentiment I added a snowflake from the same stamp set to the top.
I stamped the kraft and white tags with red ink and then embossed the red tag with white embossing powder. I also added a tree trunk and stand die cut from "Merry Little Christmas" to the bottom of each of the trees. Some glitter, a few jingle bells and a red thread tie and these are ready for gift giving.
These sweet rusty jingle bells topping my tree tag are available at Paper Sweeties! HERE
One last gingerbread basket tag....
On this gingerbread basket tag I used brown cardstock for my gingers! I used a piece of holly for a hat on Mom and a scarf for a "tie" on Dad. Each of the "kids" has two red pearl buttons.
The "Fresh Baked Treats" sentiment is from the "Stand Add-On: Fresh Baked" stamp set which has a smaller font size perfect for the tiny tags in the "Beautiful Little Wishes" Sweet Cuts. To decorate the tiny tag I added a red bow and a miniature gingerbread man cookie cutter from a bag of buttons in the Holiday Section at Hobby Lobby. It's the little things that make me smile! :)
