Thankful Wreaths

I wanted to share a couple more Fall cards before everything turns to Christmas!  I used Amuse Studio stamps & supplies.  The Festive Wreaths and Essential Sentiments Too stamp sets paired with Vanilla, Toffee & Nutmeg card stock gives a nice Fall look!

Gift Card Holders

Linda at Amuse Studio created this cute gift card holder using the notched tag from the Tag Bundle Die set.  It looks great when paired with the Especially For You sentiment set and a glittered die cut snowflake! 

I wanted to try the idea out myself so here is what I came with for my gift card holder. 
Did you know that you can stamp on felt with Stazon Ink?   This was a quick and easy gift card holder and perfect for that Ugly Sweater party you'll be hosting!  The gift card that I inserted is in the shape of a Christmas tree so all you see is the top of the tree!

Stamps:  Ugly & Bright
Card stock:  Vanilla, Candy Cane Stripe, Onyx
Ink:  Versamark, Jet Black Stazon
Other:  Cherry Felt, Tag Bundle Die Set, Ugly & Bright die set, White Embossing Powder

Snowy Car

This card idea came from Carissa Wiley at Sprinkled with Glitter.  I love this stamp set from Essentials by Ellen called Tis the Season.  Ellen Hutson recently offered matching dies to this stamp set that I bought last year, so of course I was all over the new dies making this stamp set even more fun to use!  

A close up of the frosty snow covered car!

Stamps:  Tis the Season (Ellen Hutson)
Card stock:  Sugar A2 card base, Mushroom
Ink:  Onyx Versafine, Distress Inks

Sn@p Birthday Cards!

So my friend, Dona inspired me to use up the Snap parts & pieces that I still had in my stash.  For awhile Amuse Studio was selling them but we no longer carry them so there is no need for me to hoard them!  ha!  The first set of cards are all 4 bar sized cards using the 3X4's.  I added dimension and a bit of Clear Wink of Stella on most all of the cards to add a little more interest to an otherwise flat card.  I'm planning to use these for nieces birthdays - they will be perfect!

These cards are all A2 size - it was fairly easy because all the pieces and parts are color coordinated for easy mixing!

Fall is in the Air

This card combines the Mini Blooms and Love and Thanks stamp sets.  The sentiment is from the Hey Foxy stamp set.  The ink colors are Orange, Pumpkin, Wheat, Fern, Wasabi and Evergreen to create a fall fiesta of colors.  Orange twinkle stickers and 4mm Buttercup sequins add the perfect finishing touch.

Pumpkin, Fern, Buttercup and Cocoa ink on a Kraft Fishtail stitched tag - so pretty!  The sentiment is from the Essential Sentiments Too stamp set.

This would be the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table.  The Candy Package Two die cutely decorated for Fall with the Love and Thanks stamp set & the Mini Blooms.   The candy wrapper die set to decorate the chocolate nuggets.  The thank you sentiment is from You're A Lifesaver stamp set.

Lunch Sack Die

This cute Santa bag was made using the Amuse Studio Lunch Sack Die.  It is the perfect size to hold all sorts of fun stuff.  The die is small enough to fit with the regular size plates on your Big Shot or Cuttlebug.  You'll need to cut two to assemble the bag.  The finished size is 3"W x 4"H x 1"D.  

The Body is made with the Lunch Sack Die.  The white fir edge is cut with the Small Scallop border die.  The belt is made with the new Gift Tag trio die set and lastly the Ho Ho Ho tag is made with the Classic Tag die set.  

For the tag, the red stripe is from the Dear Santa Digital (printable) kit.  The Digital kit has fun paper and card options.  The Ho Ho Ho and From stamps are from the Santa and Friends stamp set which can be found in the Holiday Catalog.

Christmas Tree Lot

I just love this fun tag card!  The Tag Bundle die set is a must have in my humble opinion.  The tree lot is from the Christmas in Our Town stamp set.
