Grateful for You and Big Sale Starts Monday

 Must admit I had ordered the  Fry Bigz Die awhile ago, but hadn't used it until just recently - and I love it! 

Simply put a sheet of cardstock on the die, and run it through the Big Shot - it comes out in one piece - scored and cut and ready to assemble. I added a piece of designer paper  and ran that through the Big Shot as well - for a pop of color!  

Two pieces of adhesives on the sides is all that is needed to hold the box together. 

My leaves were also cut with the Big Shot and a die - Autumn  Accents Bigz Die.  For a little texture, I embossed them with the polka dot embossing folder. 

The greeting is from For All Things stamp set - stamped in Crumb Cake Ink and popped up with some dimensionals.  I finished the box with a gold button, a piece of venetian lace trim, a little banner of champagne glimmer paper and bakers twine.  

Wouldn't these be great sitting everyone's place at Thanksgiving this year - I think even the leaves with the stamping and embellishment would be cute at each place too - maybe instead of the "grateful for you" stamp, I'll add each person's name.

Holiday Home

Made up this card yesterday and am loving it! Clean and simple - my kind of card! 
Here's how it went together - 

I started with a base of Whisper White Card cardstock -cut 4 1/4 x 11.  
Next layer is Real Red cardstock cut 4 x 5 1/4.  I used the Confetti Star punch to punch ALL the stars at the top! 

My focal point is a star from the Star Framelits - I used my Big Shot to cut this shape out.  The Santa and sleigh are from the Holiday Home stamp set - this set is photopolymer - and the great thing about this photopolymer stamp is that I was able to "curve" the stamp a little - love the look of that and also made it fit better on my star. 
 (Note- don't have a big shot?  A large circle punch could easily be substituted for the star shape - just punch and sponge the edges - it would look like a full moon!) 

I used a small piece of Crumb Cake cardstock to create my banner.  I sponged both the star and banner with Real Red ink and used a dimensional to attach them to my card.  

To finish the card, I used a silver metal button and a bit of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine.  

Supplies used are listed below!   If you would like to print up this supply list for future reference just click on the highlighted supply list below - 

Thanks for visiting today!  Oh - here are this week's deals - the silver buttons I used on my card are part of this sale!

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop

 One of my favorite little gifts to give at Christmas is a giant sized candy bar!  Who doesn't like a big chunk of chocolate??  

What I have done for many, many years, is take one of these gaint bars and "dress them up" - so that they look special!  A great,inexpensive gift for a neighbor, a secretary, a friend, a teacher, get the idea!!  

I have two different candy bars to share today -
Here is the first - it is not tradtional Christmas colors -but has a shabby feel to it - my favorite style!

I used the star framelits, my Big Shot and the Many Merry Stars stamp set to create all the different stars.  I sponged them with crumb cake ink and added some bling with rhinestones. The bar was wrapped with a sheet of Typeset Designer Series Paper.  I also used a piece of the lovely Cherry Cobbler ribbon - it is so great to work with and ties up into a bow very easily!

 My second candy bar is a simpler, quicker version -  I used the Many Merry Stars kit - I wrapped the giant candy bar with a small piece of our wrapping paper and tied it up with a cherry cobbler bow.  The stars, and wooden embellishment  are all a part of the Many Merry Stars kit - I simply popped them out (they are already pre cut) and added a few dimensionals, and a greeting and my bar was ready!

Here is a close up of the tag -

Below I have listed the products used in my projects today!
