Love Expressions Thinlits Heart Shaker Card

Earlier this month, for my December Stamping Club, we made Heart Framelit Shaker Cards.  They are so much fun for both you and your recipient!   Below you'll find the How'd She DO That? video.

A couple of things to note about this card:

Stampin' Up! Packaging: Snowflakes and Angels

Each year I give ornaments to my family, adding them to my gift packaging.  This year they received Festive Flurry snowflake ornaments and Gift Bow Angels.

I really liked the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit by Stampin' Up!  (I do recommend a hot glue gun for assembly.)  These ornaments were a huge hit, as they are stunning in person!  Not only did they add a nice touch to a gift bag, but they looked great paired with the snowflake gift wrapping below.

Remember the Gift Bow Angel?  Doesn't she look just right on this gift package?

I needed several gift card holders this year and this one was quick and easy!  If you need a last-minute gift card holder, give this one a try.

Seasonal Sampler: Winter Frost

Here's a Seasonal Sampler I did with my DOstamperSTARS.  This month's theme was Winter.  Each person designed 2 squares and we swapped them at our Potluck-n-Love event last month (more on that in a future post).

Here's my 2" squares:

Reindeer-Card

I had an extra reindeer square leftover, so I made a card with it.  Really, any square could be turned into a card.

Challenge Thursday: Holiday Inspiration, JOY

Time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge - this week's Home Sweet Home inspiration comes from this fun holiday photo.

DSC062-DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge Inspiration Photo

I took inspiration from the red & white package, which got me thinking of candy canes, which lead to Glimmer Paper candy cane letters.  Yes, more glimmer!  Are you getting tired of my glimmer cards?  

The "candy cane" letters are made with 1/4" strips of Silver & Red Glimmer Paper and cut with the Typeset Alphabet Dies.  Love it!! 

Only decision I couldn't make was...I was torn between the red card or white card.  What do you think?

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge, #DOstamping, #stampinup, Typeset Alphabet Dies, #BigShot, Christmas, #cardmaking

Dawn's Tips:

  • Use 2-1/2" square of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets
  • Diagonally line up 1/4" strips of Red & Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Cut (glimmer side down) with Typeset Alphabet Dies
