Hollydays with Right at Home Day 3

Thursday, November 26, 2015

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US... I hope you all have a great day filled with Family & Friends and maybe a little shopping later on tonight. It's our final day for Right at Home for the Hollydays series. Thank you for joining Nicole and I! Today I have a cut gift tag that's perfect for any package you may have. 

I used a cello bag and filled it with some Nail polish and a cute lip balm and tied it up with some Ribbon and Gold Sequins. For the Tag I doe cut a piece of Distress Ink watercolor paper and some Melon Mambo card stock. I stamped the star images from the RAH Christmas Critters set using a few colors of Distress ink and spritzing the stamp before I adhered it to the watercolor paper. On a few of them I spritzed more then others so some were more undefined. Once that was dry I stamped a few of the circles from the Poinsettias set and hear embossed the in Gold. I die cut a stag head from a Sassy Stamps die using some Gold Glitter paper. I added some gold thread behind the stag head and adhered it with dimensional adhesive. 

I stamped part of one of the sentiments from the Christmas Sentiment set and heat embossed it using some Ranger Platinum embossing powder onto a piece of Vellum. I added a few small dots of Ranger Multi Medium Matte behind the sentiment to adhere the vellum piece. I added the Pink tag behind offset a little and added it to the ribbon on my package. I love creating images with non traditional color for Christmas.

Hello there...

I'm back with another project today using the Alley way stamps sets Sweet Thing and Wispy Wishes

These flowers have two parts in this set but I wanted a third so I took the larger of the images and I stamped on the back side to give a solid outline. Then I preceded to stamp each part in a similar color of ink. I stamped the Hello there from the Sweet Thing set using some Wplus9 Black Ink. I trimmed a 1/4" off the panel on all side and adhered it to a Turquoise top folding card base with some dimensional adhesive. Instead of my signature Sparkling clear Sequins...I added a few of these Clear drops from Pretty Pink Posh, I think I may have a new fav embellishment.

Hollydays with Right at Home Day 2

Hi everyone and welcome back to Day 2 of our Hollydays series. Today I have a fun little treat idea that's inexpensive and you can use what you have in your stash!! I usually wrap the large size Hershey bars that you see around this time of year and add a gift card or a Lottery ticket to them for the mail man, UPS guy etc... When you need a little extra gift on the fly. 

I found the Movie size boxes of candies on sale and picked a few us and using Patter papers I had on hand I wrapped them and added some ribbon from my stash. I die cut a tag from a piece of coordinating card stock and I stamped the little snowflake images from the Christmas Critters set from Right at Home onto it. Then I stamped and Head embossed the sentiment from the Holiday sentiment set. I attached the tag with some dimensional adhesive. 

I stamped the gingerbread images from the same Critters set and colored it in with Copics then I fussy cut it out and added some Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle and some fun goggly eyes. For some more Bling I added a few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

It's time for some more cute fun with the Alley Way Stamps.. today I'm using the cute new set Just Ducky! I created the background using a stencil from MFT and some Distress ink on a piece of watercolor paper. 

I stamped the ducks onto some White card stock using some Tuxedo Black ink from memento and colored them in with Copics. I adhered the Background panel to a top folding White card base using some dimensional adhesive. I stamped the sentiment in the corner near the ducks with some Black ink. For a little touch of Bling.. and because I can't not have sequins lol I added some Sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Hollydays with Right at Home Day 1

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!! I'm paring up with my friend Nicole from Right at Home this week for a 3 day series called Right at Home for the Hollydays and we'll be sharing cute gift wrap ideas for all your Holiday treats!

Today I have a fun little envelope you can use for all those Gift Cards.. I use a lot of gift cards throughout the year and I always prefer to create my own envelope. I have this cute little itty bitty envelopes from YNS and I embossed it with a 3D quilted folder and then I added some Distress ink.

I die cut two Fishtail tags from YNS as well one from Green and one from some Kraft card stock and I added a bit of that same Distress Ink. I stamped the Tree and Bird image from the Right at Home Christmas Critters set using some Walnut ink from Lawn Fawn. I trimmed the images out and glued them to the green tag. I added a bit of shading to the bird with a copic marker and some White gel pen on the belly. 

I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments set using the same walnut ink and I added a few details with a brown multi liner.  I threaded some Red ribbon and Twine through the top and adhered the tags to the bag. Just slide your gift card in and go! And you can change this up for any occasion throughout the year.. How cute would these look with Nicole's Fall leaves set and Names on them for a Thanksgiving Place card? 

Head over and see what Nicole created and be sure to join us back here tomorrow for Day 2!!
