Dash Away All!

I have always liked the Dasher Stamp. It came back this year in the Best of 25 so I had to use it again embellishing his antlers with rhinestones. Using the Ovals Collection, in a different way, an open gate card can make your product look spectacular. If you want, you can even use a ribbon to close the card  for a cleaner, neater look. The following website of Dawn Griffith , shows somewhat how I put this card together. Obviously, I used different paper and stamp sets and added more layering, but the construction is what you will need to help get the look. Looking forward to getting out of the Christmas mode and on to all our new product available on Jan 3rd when Sneak Peeks become a reality!circle thinlit halved

Frosty the Snowman – Another Use For Your Envelope Punch Board!

Punch Board Candy HolderI am always looking for cute packaging for  little treats that pack a wallop using little goodies for give- a -ways or table card place settings. Today I have the cutest snowman created  by Jackie Topa using the Envelope Punch Board, washi tape, some paper, twigs and even some retired Stampin’ Up fabric. The best part of this little guy is that you can slip a small candy bar inside to help him stand upright! I liked him so much, I also was able to use part of him on a greeting card as well.
