Coffee Cup Cards From Honey Bee Stamps

Oh my gosh you guys - you want to see something cute??  I have  coffee cup shaker cards for you today. They are full size cards 5-1/2" tall, not little ones and they are absolutely the most fun to make!  I used Corrugated Cardstock for the sleeves and they look so real!

For those of you waiting on the Gnome for the Holidays set or the dies - they are back in stock now.  Yay!
All of the cards today use the FSJ Cozy Prints Printed Paper over Whip Cream cardstock.
This is how the dies come, the card body, the shaker part, lid and the heat sleeve with a circle option.  The shaker card die is from Honey Bee Stamps.



The snowman is from Spellbinders Die D-Lites Snowman on the Belly Band.


JOY letters are made with the Serif Steel Rule Die.  One of my very favorite alphabet dies.  I love that it is steel rule and you can cut multiple layers of cardstock at once.  It fits in any standard 6" die cutting machine.


This cup has the Holy Nativity Die set inside it.  It also has a greenery in the lid like a Starbucks stopper.  If you put a stopper in them, they no longer fit in an envelope for mailing, so those are for the special hand out ones. :) 


I used a combination of many, many things for the shaker.  Mainly tiny white pom poms and Journey Sequins Holiday Elements, but lots of glitter and sparkle cuts too.



What do you think?  Aren't these the cutest little things ever? Will you make some?

Wonderful Florals Bundle by Concord & 9th

Taking a break from Christmas stamping to create some bright florals with lots of coloring.
This uses the Concord & 9th Wonderful Florals Bundle - so many options with this set!  I used the main stamp and die for this one and a couple of layers for the card shown below.


I have background dots from another set that I wanted to use so I positioned the florals, die cut them and then knew where to stamp the accent dots.


Of course I had to add a little bling, no florals are completely done without Sparkle Dust and Journey Glaze.


Both cards are colored with Copic markers.


The second card with this set uses one of the layering flowers for added dimension.  I tucked a bow of Licorice Twist Twine under the flower.





It is NEW RELEASE day at The Stamp Market - check it out HERE!  So cute!!

More Gnome For the Holidays Than One Can Handle!

I'm always fascinated my seeing photos of things made in multiples.  I don't always enjoy making them, but I love looking at them.  Can you relate?
I've posted a few of my Gnome for the Holidays cards using this method, but today I decided to post the rest all at once...because who doesn't love to be spammed by holiday gnomes. *Ü*



I started by stamping and coloring pages of gnomes and trees and them die cut them all out.  Next, I cut up several pages of my printed paper in strips ... just so I would use it.  Come on - YOU know what I mean!


I arranged the printed paper on white cardstock and stamped a few sentiments...then went to work arranging gnomes everywhere!







Once you piece the paper, you can run it through any embossing folder for extra texture - that is a fun result!


I think by the time I was done I made over 30 cards.  They were all used for thank you cards the month of October and now I'm wishing I had them for Christmas cards...but no, I'm not doing this again!!  Time for something different.

The Stamp Market Gift Bag & Tags Dies

This little gift bag is a die from The Stamp Market and is the size of a gift card.  So sweet and simple to cut and fold for a cute presentation and it has the most adorable little handle!


I embellished them all using the Merry Days Bundle - definitely one of my favorites this season!


The printed paper is Cozy Prints from FSJ



Just die cut the paper and fold.  If you don't care to embellish then it is done.  They are that simple!  It also has a die topper in the set that is to use on custom size bags, like if you wanted to make a bag to put a full size card in.  Love the versatility of being able to create it the size you want or need!




If you add an extra score line to the sides and bottom, you can create a small box.  Another versatile way to use this one!


Please visit The Stamp Market and look at all the adorable things they have!
