All is Calm Tree

Hello!  Well, it’s the Saturday before Christmas.  I hope you’ve finished your shopping and are not frantically fighting the crowds today.  I managed to get mine all finished earlier this past week and the gifts are all wrapped and waiting under the tree.  :)

Here’s another card we made at my Christmas Card Club.  This is another one using the Tree punch along with the All is Calm Designer Series Paper.  I love the touches of Silver with this paper.

Christmas Bauble Coaster Set

A month ago or so, I had a fun Christmas Stamping Day and this cute coaster set is one of the projects we made.

Coaster BoxThe box is the Decorative Window box and it fits coasters inside perfectly.  I used the thicker tiles, so it fit 3 in there, but if you used thinner tiles, you could fit 4.

Here’s a look at the coasters inside.

Christmas Bauble coasterI stamped the image with Black Stazon ink and then sprayed a sealant over it.  Then, I colored in the image using my Blendabilities markers.  Then, I sprayed the sealant over it again.  I like to use the matte sealant.  And, be sure to apply those little sticky felt dots to the back so the tile wont scratch your table.  Or use could glue a piece of cork board to the back.  Either one works great.

A Simple Nature’s Peace Card

This is a super simple card using the Nature’s Peace stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  I love this big giant stamp.  There’s not too much you need to add to it to create a beautiful card.

Festival of Trees Cards

Here’s a couple of Christmas cards we made during the past couple of  months at my Christmas Card Club.  I love this All is Calm Designer Series Paper on this sample.  The green and blue together are so pretty.  And the Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating punch have been so fun to play with this season.

Festival of Trees 2

This next one was cased from my friend, Kimberly VanDiepen.  I came across her card on Pinterest one day and fell in love with it, so I had to copy!  Thanks Kimberly!

Grateful Polka Dot Treat Bag

Polka Dot Treat BagI made several of these for a retreat back in September, but thought this week of thankfulness was a perfect time to share it with you.   I just love these fun little bags.  They come in this polka dot print and in a chevron print.  They are perfect for tucking a little treat of some sort inside.
