I used all the same parts, but I changed my main image to Mrs Clause, from Riley & Company. For the small snowflakes in the background, I used a stamp from the Serene Snowflake set.
I let Olivia choose between the bashful blue or riding hood red, and she decided on the bashful blue.
I sponged on bashful blue, used copics to colour & the hanger is bashful blue taffeta with sheer white ribbon
Rachel's is the red one. I used riding hood red because I wanted to use the taffeta ribbon, I love that stuff. I had intended on using vanilla with the red, but I forgot and didn't remember until I had Sophie all coloured!
Donna's is lavendar lace. Her favorite colours are orange & purple, so this seemed like a good choice. Orange just doesn't seem like Christmas to me!
To make the snowflakes softer, I stamped in ink, then on a scrap paper, then on my circle. Sophie's outfit and the snowflakes are covered in iridescent ice glitter.
Stamps: Mrs. Clause, SU Serene Snowflakes
Paper: white, riding hood red, lavendar lace, bashful blue
Ink: memento tuxedo black, riding hood red, lavendar lace, bashful blue
Accessories: copics, circle/scallop nesties, floral accent nesties, dimensionals, sponges, pearls, iridescent ice glitter, ribbon
Have a Great Day!
I ended up needing a few gift card holders for Christmas so I used some great ideas I found on SCS. Unfortunately I forgot to get a picture of the inside of te snowman holder! This one opens at the top, like a card & has a pocket inside. I was inspired this one by genescrapper, and this one by Toy.
This is the Beanie gift card holder, TLC251. Another quick gift card holder that can be decorated any way you want! I went with a fairly simple design since I was running out of time! The snowflake is a mini tree decoration & I cut the circle off that had the thread hanger...does that make sense?
I made this for Olivia's Teacher. It was a combo Christmas and goodbye gift, as he will not be returning after the New Year. He was filling in for her Teacher who was on maternity leave, he will be greatly missed.
The treat container was made using the TLC250 shipping tag bag/box challenge, my shipping tags were a little larger, so I adjusted the size to fit mine. We filled the box with homemade peanut butter squares!

So you're not out fighting the crowds on the last Saturday before Christmas!!!! I agree, surfing the net is way more relaxing, and fun!
This handsome guy is from Totally Stampalicious in a set called Snowmen. I stamped him on white & coloured with copics. His hat & scarf were stamped separately, coloured and cut out. The image panel was cut with my new nesties Label #8. I cut a couple extra pieces for the bottom too.
I attached the bottom pieces with temporary tape, then embossed the whole thing with the swiss dot EF. Then I removed the bottom pieces, added the glitter and then reattached them.
I was so happy to get my new Candy cane stripes EF. I embossed the red background piece, then ran the edge of my white craft ink pad along the raised edges.
The sentiment is popped up, and I added sheer ribbon. The candy is a mini tree decoration, just like the snowflake in the post below!
Have a Great Weekend!
So this is the beautiful new Riley stamp called Mrs Clause. You can now find Riley stamps at his new home Riley and Company. She definitely looks like she enjoys the snow more than me!
I stamped her on white, and coloured with copics. All the furry bits of her outfit & the snowflakes are covered with dazzling diamonds EP.
The card base is soft sky, with dp from the SEI pad winter song.
I used sheer white ribbon, and white taffeta ribbon. Now here's a cool tip, the snowflake is actually a mini Christmas decoration! If you're going to rush out & buy some, save some for me, I'm planning on stocking up on these, and after Christmas they'll be really cheap! lol
Have a great Weekend
