Jar of Love is another stamp set that has not gotten enough love from me. For this card, I stamped the jar on vellum using Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I put it on some Wood Textures paper and Buffalo Check stamped paper that I had laying on my work table. The background is Hardwood stamped using Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake.
I absolutely love the Buffalo Check background stamp and I thought pairing it with the Dashing Deer bundle would be great. I love how this card came out. I even used the beautiful deer die on the inside.
I’m going to take the month of December off from blogging but I’ll be back in January.
I showed you my scrapbook page that I created for this swap on Tuesday, today I’ve got the pages I received in return. A scrapbook swap is a lot of work but it’s worth it to get this many pages at once!

Right now I’m in Orlando, FL attending OnStage! It’s the 30th anniversary of Stampin’ Up! so I decided to head to the BIG convention (normally I only go to the one day local ones I can drive to). I’m not going to be alone; there are 40 others from Susan’s Stampfield Stars group attending too not to mention the almost 10,000 demonstrators that I don’t know yet!
I decided to make treats for everyone in the group. Shh, don’t tell them, it’s a secret. 😉 This is what I came up with based on the container of leftover snowflakes from my Beautiful Blizzard projects.
For my first one, I just put the mint patties in the cellophane bag but it’s much easier to do it with the little Shaded Spruce liner. The liner is 2″ x 6″ and scored 1/4″ from each edge. The link to where I got the idea for the liner is lost somewhere on Pinterest.
This was actually the first project I created when I got the Beautiful Blizzard bundle. The problem with that was that I figured out the dimensions as I made it and didn’t use adhesive sheets so you can see all the dots of glue. 😦 It does look really cute when it’s lit at night though. Needless to say, that is a battery powered candle and not a real one, that would be dangerous.
This was my daughters favorite card and one of mine too. I just love the color combination. I’m almost exactly CASE’d it from TatianaCreative.com.au. Her card was just so beautiful. Now I just need to create a scrapbook page to put the SNOW on. 🙂
Highland Heather and Pool Party were stamped off before stamping on the card front for the snowflakes, Balmy Blue was stamped full strength.
So when I first got the Blizzard thinlit I wondered what I could make with it that wasn’t strictly a snowflake and I came up with this wreath. I created a Whisper White wreath to mount the snowflakes on. I colored each of them with the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler light and dark Stampin’ Blends before using the fine-tip glue pen build the wreath. All of the Cherry Cobbler pieces have Wink of Stella on them but again that’s not showing up in the photos.
Here is the wreath I created from the largest stitched shapes circle and the 2 1/4″ circle punch before I added the snowflakes:
I had lines drawn on the back of my wreath so I could evenly distribute the snowflakes but not everyone feels compelled to be that precise. 🙂 Also some of the white for the wreath showed behind the snowflakes, hence the white background.
