Christmas Card 2010

This is this years Christmas card that was sent out to family and friends.

The tree is from a very special set from WMS called Nutcracker Sweet. I silver embossed the image to a Spellbinders Label Die and adhered to the base card with popdots. I ran 3/4 of the base card through my snowflake embossing folder then added two score lines with my scorpal. The Merry Christmas sentiment is also from WMS.
A very simple but elegant Christmas card.

Ghiradelli Candy Holder

These little Ghiradelli holders are so cute and everyone just loves them. Word of warning here...they are a bit time consuming to make but I always make at least a dozen at a time one step at a time. Just put some music on and they will be finished in no time at all.
I know the tutorial says to use sticky strip but I found it doesn't hold that well for this project...I always use Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive. This can be found at Michaels. I also use clips to hold it together till the glue drys.

I normally use a tan/beige cardstock but this was for a special order and the lady wanted red/green holders.
There is a great tutorial over at SCS and these are the directions that I used.
The round mouse stamp is from this company! I also added a little bling to the mousey nose.

Snowmen Hershey Bar Wrappers

Another great item to make for a craft show are these Snowmen Hershey Bars....super quick and easy. Also a very good seller.

Kerry has a great video tutorial on how to make these cuties. She has the best ideas for craft show and definitely my "go to" blog when stuck for a craft idea.
I have my last craft show tomorrow ...Sunday the 19th and have been very busy replenishing my best sellers. I will be posting my (not really my idea) Ghiradelli holders tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!

Cocoa Card

Talk about a simple but cute gift or stocking stuffer!
This little card is just too cute and so easy to make up.

I adhered a packet of cocoa mix to the inside with a glue dot. The chocolate candy stick is held in place on the front of the card with just the ribbon. The patterned paper is from PTI's Christmas pack and the sentiments are also from PTI. This card would be best for a bubble mailer or inserted in someone special Christmas stocking.
I was inspired by Wendy at Moonlightstamper for this Cocoa card.

I'm still here!

I'm still around in Blog land but just haven't been stamping/posting lately.
I've been busy this past month making items for a few crafts shows. These M&M sticks seem to be the latest crafty item and they do sell quite well.

I just bought some 1x8 inch bags (ultra clear lip tape) at added holiday M&M's and just added a circular topper. Now how simple and cute is that?
