It got into the low 50's today with a little rain this morning. I did some shopping today and was glad to get home. Made for a long day.
I finished water coloring the rest of the images from SU's Santa's Gifts Stamp Set and made another Treat Holder like the one that I put on my blog yesterday. Let's take a look:
Mr. Cardinal looks so cute perched atop Mr. Reindeer's tail.
cut a piece of Stampin' Up's Thick Whisper White Cardstock 2 1/2"x8
1/2" and scored it at 3 3/4" from each end. I trimmed the corners off
die cut a piece of Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper for the sky
using SU's Sleigh ride edgelits and adhered it to the front top of the
treat holder base.
stamped the images from SU's Santa's Gifts Stamp Set onto SU's Shimmery
White Card Stock and water colored them using SU's Cherry Cobbler,
Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant, Calypso Coral and Marina Mist
Inks. Then I fussy cut all the images out.
SU's Dazzling Details, I applied a thin line where the DSP meets the
Whisper White Card Stock for the snowline. I also added some randomly
in the white area for some glisten in the snow.
I added dimensionals to the back of the Reindeer, the Christmas Tree and Mr. Cardinal and adhered them to the treat holder.
used SU's Fast Fuse to adhere a piece of SU's White 3/8" Glitter Ribbon
around the top of the treat holder. I used SU's Handheld Hole Punch to
punch a hole in the top and threaded another piece of the glitter
ribbon through the hole. I then tied it off with a bow using SU's
Cherry Cobbler Thick Bakers Twine.
stamped the Sentiment from SU's Peaceful Pines Stamp Set in SU Cherry Cobbler Ink and punched it out with
SU's new Snow Flurry Punch and adhered it to the ribbon. I then
added a Rhinestone to the sentiment.
a side view showing the Tic Tac's inside. These make for nice, small
gifts for Christmas; family, friends and co-workers!
You could also make this into a tag by cutting the base at 2 1/2"x3 3/4" or it would make for a cute card.
Here's a picture of both Treat Holders that I made:
Looking at both of the Treat Holders side-by-side, I think it would make for a cute scrap book page also.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Hope you can make it back tomorrow!
