More Color Me Christmas! Stampin’ Up!

While I have been creating samples for my Annual Christmas Card Camp I stamped a few extra pieces and I created a few more hot chocolate holders.  These are so easy and make great little gifts! 

On the first hot chocolate holder I used Crumb Cake card stock.  I decided to give it a run through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry embossing folder for some extra pizzaz. 🙂  I used a white gel pen to add some falling snow and of course I added a bit of sparkle with my Dazzling Diamonds glitter!

Here is another one:

This one is created with Cherry Cobbler card stock and a piece of designer paper from the Season of Style pack (found in the Holiday Mini).  I just ordered the Baked Brown Sugar 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim and had to put it to use and I think that it looks very cute popping out from my piece of designer paper!  Don’t you?

Again, these are super simple to re-create.  Just use a half sheet of card stock (5.5″x8.5″) to start, fold in half, trim off the corner of one side, decorate the front, punch a hole on the side, and tie a knot with ribbon to hold it closed.  Viola.  Easy peasy! 🙂

Here are the stamp sets that I used to create these two hot chocolate holders:

Can you believe that Halloween is TOMORROW?  Wow, it is flying by faster than normal it seems.  I didn’t do too many halloween projects this year.  🙁  And, I love halloween stamps!

Oh well.  Better luck next year!

One last note…the one thing that is taking up my nights lately…The World Series.  I *love* that “we” (and by we, I mean the St. Louis Cardinals) are in the World Series.  But, man, I can not get much done with my eyeballs being glued to the television for nights at a time!  My fingers are crossed that we pull out a win tonight but, then that may shorten Halloween for my kiddos.  Oh well, right?!  There’s always next year for them too! lol.

Have a great night!  Go Cards!
