Christmas Box with Matching Candle

Hello I saw this and had to try and make one. I have used retired Christmas papers and ribbon. The new jumbo snowflake punch (116628) was used as well. Took a bit of figuring out but it looks fine with the matching candle.. Hope to find time to make a few more for a up coming craft sale. Makes a perfect small gift for teacher, neighbour or just a friend.

Isn't it hard to believe that September is almost over. The weather here has turned and it now does feel like fall. Thanks for stopping by.

Ornament Punch Merry Christmas

I saw a similar card to this and had to do it too. Think this will be one of my stamp a stack cards... I used the Stampin'Up! textured impressions folder Petals-A-Plenty (116824) love this folder.. then cut it out with the Ornament punch (116794) colored in with the uni-ball Signo Gel Pen (105021). the stamp set Four the Holidays (116921) was used for the Merry Christmas..
This picture is a little blurry sorry for that.

Monster treat box

Hello stampers. This little box was one of BJ Peters convention swaps. Isn't he cute. Last year I made him a girl friend she was done the same with pink hair and a bow. Cute for those special children on your Halloween list.
I must say we are having nice warm days but fall is in the air,especially early mornings.
The My Digital Studio that I won at convention has been shipped so I am patiently waiting. Then I will try my hand at this new avenue that Stampin"Up! has given us. I was on the fence about it. But the more I see the more I think I will incorporate this into my business. I as many of you know am not a wizard at the computer but I think I may just get the hang of this new product and if I can ANYONE can.... till next time
