Christmas Once More!

Hi Everybody! Hope you are all having a Wonderful Christmas to New Year Holiday! It's so much fun making all things Christmas! It's nice to make a few more things even though Christmas is over. This card is for the challenge at Play Date Cafe. To check out the details click Here Such a fun inspiration photo. I was inspired by the pretty stockings with flourishes on the mantel, fuzzy greenery, candy cane stripes and bows.

Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Boxing day everyone!! We are still celebrating Christmas today with turkey and all the trimmings. Another day of food and fun. Christmas is really the most wonderful time of the year.
 Head on over to Papertrey's Blog Hop  for action and details on the "Holiday's Leftover"  challenge. Things to use are leftover wrapping paper, canceled postage, bows, photos etc. So here's my take on this challenge. I used a strip of leftover gold wrapping paper folded to make a band, a ribbon piece, some awesome butter cookies and  a few candy in the box. The box I used is a leftover pkg from some small Christmas tree ornaments. On the front tag I used PTI Vintage labels and All About You. Fun creation!
Email me if you would like the recipe for these cookies.

Glittering all the way

This is a technique called "Glitter Masking" as shown at Paper trey ink make-it-monday #44  by Jennifer. My project is a picture for a shabby frame that I have. I cut out my masks with PPT ink ric rack for the red garland and scalloped trim edger for the bottom of the tree. The tree base is stamp from Tree Trimming Trio. The ornaments and star are  punches. I mounted it on a piece of Simply Chartreuse cardstock. A bit of a messy technique but glad I tried it : )
