Pizza for Christmas!


One of my favourite pre-Christmas gift ideas is a set of Christmas tags. I figure it is something everyone can use at this busy time of year. We made this set of gift tags and a little decorated pizza box for them in one of my recent classes.


I've used the stunning Year of Cheer Designer Series paper and embossed all my sentiments to match. This paper is only decorated on one side, which makes it perfect to use for gift cards.

CCMC487 Bird Banter


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:

Fun! At first I was going to make a Christmas card, but I felt like a break from Christmas, and then I was going to go with something floral...but in the end, I couldn't resist pulling out a brand new (Sneak Peak!) stamp set from our upcoming Occasions Catalogue.
  • This cute birdie is from a new set called Bird Banter.
  • I've also borrowed the layout from a card in the new Catalogue (I love a new catalogue for the inspiration it holds within!).
  • The pretty Calypso Coral and silver paper in the background is another sneak peak called Sweet Soiree.
  • To complement the silver in the paper, I added a narrow strip of Silver Foil cardstock
  • I watercoloured my birdie using Blender Pens. I even gave him a little birthday hat to wear.
I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Enjoying Pizza Boxes


I've been packaging all sorts of gifts in the Mini Pizza Boxes...apart from 3"x3" notecards, 4 tealight candles fit really well (wrap in washi tape to pretty them up), and so do soaps, chocolates and cookies to name just a few ideas. They are so easy and quick to assemble (no adhesive required!) are lined with a food-safe coating, and don't require much decorating either. What could be better?

I was pretty excited when I found the perfect filling for this box - a gummi pizza!


Cute as a button! You can find these in Kmart and BigW (in Australia). What a sweet gift!

Black Cat in a Window


Swapping is a fun part of attending Stampin' Up! events. I recently made 40 of these cards to take with me to the Gold Coast OnStage Demonstrator Event. I swapped them with other Demonstrators and came home with 40 new inspiring card ideas.
I used Embossing Paste to make a textured Brick wall. I masked the centre with a sticky note, and added a window there for a black cat to sit behind. The window box is filled with flowers that I sponged with ink (Tempting Turquoise and Calypso Coral), and I stamped a sentiment from the Sitting Here stamp set.
Hopefully everyone that I swapped with liked my card!

CCMC486 Colour me Happy Lanterns


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:

I've kept my card very clean and simple this week. I pulled out my Blends and Color Me Happy stamp set again, this time using the lantern images. I coloured one in Pumpkin Pie and one in Night of Navy. I used a couple of Designer Series Paper scraps in co-ordinating colours to anchor them. I wanted to add some real strings, but the Solid Baker's Twine was a little too thick, so I've just separated a couple of strands. I also popped the lanterns up on dimensionals.

I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Whimsical Ornaments


I love working with non-traditional colours for Christmas. For this card I've used Basic Black, Whisper White and Berry Burst. I always like to have some black and white patterned paper in my stash. It's great to use as is, but it's also fun to add colour too. Here I've sponge brayered the Merry Music paper with Berry Burst ink. I started at the bottom and worked my way up to create an ombre effect.
How cute are these ornaments? They are part of the Hostess set in the Christmas Catalogue. You can choose this set as part of your Stampin' Rewards for an order over $250. I added just a touch of colour with a Berry Burst marker and a light watercolour wash.
