Jolly Friends - Make and Take card

This is the card that I have been using as my Make and Take for my recent Parties. It is based on a design by a lovely Australian Demo - Dawn Ferguson.

The card uses another of our Christmas stamp sets from the Autumn / Winter catalogue - Jolly Friends. The set has a coordinating punch which cuts out the Hat pieces.

The stamps used for the backgrounds on both cards come from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set.

The sentiment comes from the Holly Jolly Greetings set.

I used the Owl Punch to create the 'nose'.

Final ...... Cozy Critters

This is the last of the cards that I've made so far with the Cozy Critters Hostess stamp set.

I used some of the Stitched Shapes framelits again for this card. I absolutely love these ..... and so do you apparently too! Sadly Stampin' Up! have had to temporarily stop orders for them - just for a little while. The stock is completely depleted and there is a large back order for them. They will come back though .... as soon as more stock comes in - I will let you know as soon as this happens :o) You can find full details for them HERE.

Here's To Cheers - Bottle Tags

For the first time in many years, I have started 'sorting' Christmas gifts early!

Even though I don't really have that much to do each year, I tend to leave it until the last minute - so it always turns into a bit of a panic'd rush in the end! Not this year though, I've almost finished everything :o)

I give many bottles of wine to friends and family and like to make them a little more 'special' with the packaging.

This year I've used the Here's to Cheers stamp set and the co-ordinating Cheerful Tags framelits. 

One of the framelits creates this awesome bottle tag that slips over the neck of your bottle. I placed the wine into one of our new large Gusseted Cello Bags first, before adding the Tag.

I then decorated the Tag using some of our Copper Foil sheets and Copper embossing powder.

The Stamp set, Framelits and Cello bags are all reduced in the current Online Extravaganza Sale - BUT this sale ends today, so don't delay your orders!! :o)
