Here is a fun card created by Laura Jane. She used the Let It Snow stamp set and colored with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
Next up we have a beautiful Thank you card from Deepti Stephens. Deepti used the Hello Gorgeous stamp set. She also placed some of the Poinsettia Sequin Mix on the card for the perfect embellishment. This card is great for the many thank you cards everyone will need to send following the holidays!
Larissa Heskett is sharing her FAB earrings she created using the Let It Snow stamp set and shrinky dink film! Here are a few things Larissa wanted to share:
I’ve made a Pair of Earrings using the Let It Snow Stamp Set and the Coordinating Let It Snow Honey Cuts Die Set along with the Merry & Joy Stamp Set and Shrink Plastic!! I also made a Card and the Gift Packaging using the Same Products!! I Stamped onto the Shrink Plastic using a MFT Hybrid Ink in Black!! Then I Die Cut the Snowman using the Coordinating Die Cut!! I opted to remove the Arms so that the Image would be more stable as a Charm!! Then I Shrunk the Plastic after I punched a hole in the Top of the Snowman in order to make him a Charm!! I wanted a FUN Holiday Word Dangle so I Die Cut the Banner from the and Stamped the Holiday Word from the Merry & Joy Stamp Set!! I cut it down to Size and then Punched the hole and Shrunk it!! I added the Earring Hoops, some Beads and the Earring Hooks and my Earring are READY to Wear to any Holiday Event!!
Galina Filippenko is next to share a fun card she created in a very clever way! She used the Color Me Alpha stamp set for the sentiment and she used the Little Pickup stamp set to stamp the gift box background. So fun!!
Lesley Oman is sharing a beautiful bracelet that she created. Here are a few things Lesley wanted to share:
Lesley here, and I am sharing how you can use your stamps to make fun, one-of-a-kind gifts! One of the reasons that I simply adore the Hello Gorgeous stamp set is because it is so big.
For my project today I have made a fun floral bracelet by stamping some images from this set onto white opaque shrink plastic, using stazon ink. Once stamped, I cut the images out with my scissors leaving a small white border, and then used my crop-o-dile to punch two holes in each piece.
When you heat the plastic and it shrinks, the colour really intensifies, so before grabbing my heat gun, I simply added a few dots of colour to each image with a pink and yellow copic marker.
I then dug out my jewelry making supplies to grab a few findings to put the bracelet together – jump rings between each piece, a little chain on the end to give my bracelet more length, and a clasp. Placed in a presentation box and wrapped with a bow- this handmade gift is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face on Christmas day!
And last, but certainly not least we have Melissa Bickford. Here are a few things Melissa wanted to share:
I’m so excited to be participating in the Advent Extravaganza. I created a card and matching envelope using Merry & Joy Stamp Set and mixed it with the wreath from Not Too Shabby set. I finished it off with hearts, from the Little Pickup stamp set, and a few colorful sequins from the Jack Frost Mix!
