Merry Christmas Set!

Hi Everyone, just posting a little set I made for one of Dh's co-workers.
I had made a set for my sister for her birthday awhile back (which I will post later)and Dh saw it and wanted me to make something for one of the women in the office.I couldn't make the same as I did for my sister(you will see why),so this is what I came up with.I had this little notepad I had bought at Michaels and it had the initial R and was perfect. Iddin't like the cover on the notepad, so
took it off using it as a template and made another.I used some yummy paper from S.E.I.I also made this little box to hold some yummy Lindor chocolates.
The tut for the box can be found here>>>>SCS.
It called for shipping tags and didn't have any so modified it a bit.
Of course the set wasn't complete without a card.

notepad open

Paper: S.E.I.
Stamps;Verve & SU
Accessories:Glittery ribbon from my stash,$store rhinestones,MS border punch,
oval nesties.
Thank you for visiting, I will be back later with a project I made for my sister.
Have a wonderful day.

Silent Night !

Hi again,Its time for another Stamptacular challenge and
the challenge for today is ......Christmas with a Twist !
You have to create a card or project for Christmas with no reds
or greens.
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for this challenge, but I had pulled several papers that I could use for this challenges that didn't have the traditional
colors of red and green.
I played around with them for awhile,but couldn't get it to work for me and then I saw on my desk several challenges I had printed off I had wanted to try.
So I took the white challenge from SCS where you could only use white card stock and one color of ink.Everything seem to click into place for me
and I am quite pleased with out my card turned out.
I am loving the look of all white.
It also qualifies for the OCCC challenge this week.

For my white creation, I took a piece of white Cs and ran it thru my CB using A SU folder" Petals A Plenty", and then scored another piece of white CS, half inch apart with my Score it.I made the flower using the Nesties Poinsettia.
I stamped the sentiment with silver ink and then trimmed around
everything with a silver pen.Added some white pearls and a piece of white offray ribbon.Bow made using a bowmaker.

Paper:White CS
Ink: MS
Accessories:Nesties poinsettia, nestie circles,Offray ribbon, MM pearls, silver pen, MS branch punch.

I adapted the box a bit to hold my treats.I made it a bit taller with out using the
fold down flap.I rounded off the top of the sides on the boxes.
I added some hot chocolate packages,Biscotti,candy canes and some
mint sticks.
I keep the cards fairly simple and used some SU cardstock and some
christmas paper from a couple of years ago.I use Verve stamps and cut out the tree and holly and pop dotted them.I just Love my Verve stamps.
I made the little tags using nesties tags.Added some $store rhinestones.
They went over very well as all the women loved them.

Weaving....with ribbon!!

Weaving with Stamptacular.......
The challenge for this week ... to create a project that incorporates weaving
When I saw what the challenge was for this week, I was afraid it was gonna be time consuming and hard to do. I wasn't sure what to make, so when I am stuck , I always go to SCS and do a search and this is what I found.
I saw a card on there with this ribbon weaving and it lead me to this site for a tut on >>>>>>Ribbon Weaving
It was so easy and fast to do.I created a wreath with my weaving, added a bow and some rhinestones and .....Voila !
After having the wreath made, I searched thru my papers and found this sheet of PP from SandyLion.I've had this paper for some time and it matched my wreath perfect.The berries on the paper was a little dull, so I highlighted them a little with a Tombow marker.
I used a Fancy Tags for my sentiment.
I borrowed the tags from my friend( Thank You Kathy), since I done have them yet.
I have them on order and hopefully have them soon.

Stamps:Clear stamps
Ink: SU
Accessories:Offray ribbon, $store rhinestones,Circle nesties,rectangle nesties.

The sponsor for this week is Sassy Studio Designs with four
images of winners choice.How cool is that.

Star Of Wonder......

Welcome back to MoJo Monday and a sketch to kick start your week.
Julee has designed another awesome sketch.
I found this sheet of shimmer cardstock in my pile, I believe it maybe
Bazzill, and decided to work with it. I kept my card very simple to show case the star.I added a few pearls and some white ribbon to finish it off.
I seldom keep my cards so simple, but with the shimmer CS, I didn't want to cover it up. I am loving the look of it.
I embossed the star and sentiment with white EMP.

Paper: Bazzill shimmer CS
Stamps: Verve
Ink: Versamark
Accessories:Ranger EBP, Offray ribbon, MM pearls,MS border punch.
