Plaid Deer Treats

Did you know you can make plaid deer?  Use the Buffalo Check background stamp.  And good news – it’s one of the stamp sets that will be carrying over from the Holiday catalog into the new year.  Yay!  Check out these quick little treats…

I folded some card stock – measure the bottom to fit the width of what you are putting inside and add a flap at the top to fold over the front.  I punched two holes and tied the braided linen thread through.  The top flap has been stamped with Buffalo Plaid stamp and so have the deer die cuts.  Aren’t they cute?  Even though it looks like black I actually used Basic Gray for all of the stamping.

Supply List

  • Buffalo Check stamp
  • Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies
  • Christmas Pines stamp set
  • Thick Whisper White Card Stock
  • Real Red card stock
  • Basic Gray ink
  • Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Metallic Pearls
  • Braided Linen Trim
  • 1/8″ Handheld punch
  • Stampin’ Trimmer
  • Stamparatus
  • Big Shot Die Cut Machine

In case you are wondering what is inside mine – well it’s Walker’s Shortbread Fingers.  They are packaged in a plaid wrapper and coordinated perfectly with this project.  I was able to find some at Tuesday Morning.

Merry Christmas to You!

Christmas Crate

This is a fun little treat idea if you need something to gift this weekend.  We made this in my Tags & Treats class and I gifted one to the mail lady.  I’m trying to get my Christmas cards out.  Yesterday I had 75 go out and today another 40.  There will be one more batch going out on Monday.  I’m not sure if any will arrive before Christmas but as long as I get them in the mail by Christmas eve I’m ok with that.  Hopefully the recipient will be too.

This is the gable box turned into a crate style box.  Inside I have some festive cake balls.  I stuck with a Red, White and Silver theme for this one.  It’s a bit hard to see in the catalog but the Lustrous White Gable boxes have a shimmer to them – they aren’t just plain white.

Supply List

  • Lustrous White Mini Gable Box
  • 2×8 Cellophane bag
  • Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon
  • 1/8″ Solid Real Red Ribbon
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Real Red Ink
  • Dashing Deer Bundle – Dashing Deer stamp set + Detailed Deer Thinlits die
  • Big Shot Die cutting machine
  • Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets

I used some red striped paper straws to create the handle.  So that you don’t tear the box use a hole punch the size of the straw at the top of the little slot.  Mine was just a standard size hole punch like you get from the office supply store.  And I used some scotch tape to hold the little cello bag shut after I put the cake balls inside.  Enjoy!

Don’t miss the year end closeout sale – Happening now and the Clearance Rack – new items were added to it.

Santa’s Workshop Notes

Late in November I held a Santa’s Workshop Bingo event.  It was so much fun!  The theme was Santa’s Workshop and I used products from the very popular Santa’s Workshop Suite in the Holiday Catalog.  Everyone received a good bag full of supplies for their projects and lots of extras to take home.  We had stamping and played some bingo for prizes.  Yummy little snacks to eat and it lots of laughter and fun.  It was  perfect afternoon to start the Christmas season.

One of the projects that everyone made was this Santa’s Workshop Note pad.  I use lots of note pads – I’m a list person.  And this time of year there are lists for everything.  So this was not only cute but a practical project too.

I found notepads at the office supply store and measured those and then measured a piece of card stock to fold around it.  Don’t forget to include the depth of the spine and any over hang you want.  Then I decorated the front with a strip of paper from the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series paper and a card from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More card pack.  It’s tied shut with a piece of the Poppy Parade ribbon.

Supply List

  • Poppy Parade card stock
  • Garden Green card stock
  • Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series paper
  • Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon
  • Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack
  • Tear & Tape
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals

I used some paper and one of the stickers from the Memories & More card pack to decorate the little note pad.  Then attach it with Tear & Tape to the inside.  Tie the the cover shut with the ribbon and then slip in your favorite holiday pencil. There are a variety of stickers in the Memories & More card pack – use those to decorate your pages as desired.

Finishing Farmhouse Christmas

I’m finishing up the Farmhouse Christmas projects from my Fall Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat.  I know those that attended loved them and I’ve been hearing from others that are watching my posts that they love all the ideas too.  But this isn’t the only suite that I’ve been using this year so I need to finish and move on to other things. 

This first project was the last little gift everyone received.  A sweet little bag filled with a surprise.  These are the Santa’s Bags in the Holiday catalog.  I added a tag to dress up the bag and inside is a little wooden sign/ornament. 

The base of the tag is the Galvanized Metallic paper that’s been embossed with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.  It looks amazing in real life – you just want to run your fingers across it to feel the texture.  I stamped and cut out the house with the die and then colored in with Stampin’ Blends.  I finished with a galvanized button and some cotton twine. 

Supply List

  • Farmhouse Christmas Bundle = Farmhouse Christmas Stamp set + Farmhouse Framelits dies
  • Galvanized Metallic Paper
  • Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder
  • Santa Bags
  • Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine
  • Galvanized Buttons
  • Cherry Cobbler Card stock
  • Crumb Cake card stock
  • Memento Black ink
  • Stampin’ Blends: Old Olive, Crumb Cake

 

This last card is one that I received as a swap and I didn’t change anything on it at all.  When using other ideas I usually change at least one thing but this card was perfect as is. 

Supply List

  • Farmhouse Christmas Stamp set
  • Quilt Top Embossing Folder
  • Linen Thread
  • Sprig Punch
  • Leaf Punch
  • Thick Very Vanilla Card stock
  • Cherry Cobbler Card stock
  • Mossy Meadow card stock
  • Very Vanilla card stock
  • Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper
  • Vellum card stock
  • Mossy Meadow ink
  • Layering Squares framelits dies
