Holiday Collection Week 2 Blog Hop!

It's the end of week 2 (already!) of the Holiday Collection from Create with Connie and Mary and we have a BLOG HOP for you!  Each Design Team member has made a card with the set they used in week two, and I know you will want to make your way around to see them all.  The projects for the collection have been out of this world!  If you're not a subscriber, it's not too late to join in the fun.  You can find all the details on Create with Connie and Mary.

You should be getting here from Melissa's blog, she always has amazing cards and projects to share.  My set for the week was Letterpress Winter paired with the Snowflake Flip Card thinlet Die.

This awesome set of die cuts is so fun to work with.  I am in the process of planning a Frozen birthday party for my daughter, so I went ahead and made her invitation a flip card.  She sat next to me and "directed" me with what she wanted.  Of course, the colors are very important...frosty cool colors make this card perfect for a December birthday.

Inside the frosty colors continue.  I stamped "you're invited" directly on the designer paper, love the way it looks.  The side flap in white has a place for all the details and a silver snowflake.

We are having a fairly small party, so I plan to make each card individualized.  The snowflake on the inside of the card will have the guest's name printed from the computer.  I like the idea of having a really personalized card to give will get them excited for the party!

Here's the invite with the party favor I shared yesterday.  I love the two together, the All is Calm paper is just so beautiful!

Now, it's time to check out Debbie's beautiful creation.  She always has amazing ideas to share!
Thanks so much for hopping with us today!  Happy stamping!

Letterpress Winter Party Favor

Yay!  It's Friday!  I've had quite a week...been so busy I am glad the weekend is almost here!  Today my second project for the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Collection went live and I am so excited about it!  For those of you who haven't subscribed yet, you can find out all the details at Create with Connie and Mary.  This session is full of AMAZING holiday ideas that you don't want to miss!

Now, on to my Letterpress Winter party favor.  I just got the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlet Die (it's AWESOME) and I wanted to make something right away!  Since my daughter's birthday is around the corner, I designed a party favor for her Frozen themed party.

Too cute, huh!  The box assembles very easily, so I know it will be no big deal to make a bunch. Stampin' Up! did me a real favor this year with all the beautiful products and colors that coordinate with a Frozen birthday party.   The All is Calm Designer Series Paper is just the right colors!  My eight year old, soon to be nine year old, is OBSESSSED with Frozen and is so excited about all the projects we are about to tackle.

I made the back of the favor pretty as well.  The snowflake got a silver "joy" die cut in the center to add a little sparkle.  Theses little beauties will look lovely lined up on the table for the girls to take home...what a fun treat!

I hope you enjoyed the little party favor today!  Be sure to check back, I will be sharing the preparations for Sofia's party over the next couple of weeks.  

Thanks so much for visiting!  Happy stamping!

Festival of Trees for CCMC326

Thursday's here and so is the new challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  We are in week 2 of the Holiday Collection, so I am in Christmas mode.  That means today's card is of course a Christmas card.  Before I get ahead of myself, let me show you the colors we are working with this week.

I have really been into Festival of Trees which I used last week, so I went ahead and made another one for this week!

First of all, I love this week's colors!   Mossy Meadow is such a deep, rich color and it goes beautifully with Lost Lagoon.  I had no trouble whipping up this card with just a few items.

The Mossy Meadow card base is embossed with the On Point Embossing Folder....super cute!  I was hesitant to get it, but I am soooo glad I did!  The Lost Lagoon banner has snowflakes from Endless Wishes stamped all over and a tree popped up on dimensionals.

The sentiment is in Lost Lagoon on Whisper White and die cut with a the banner from the Snowflake Card Thinlet Dies.  The card was almost complete....except for the silver.  So, per my usual, I added in STARS!  A star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack tops the tree and small stars from the Confetti Star Punch are scattered around.

So that's it!  A quick card that could easily be made in large quantities to send for Christmas!  Now it's your turn, why not join the challenge and create a card with us?!  Just go to Create with Connie and Mary for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.  While you are there, why not check out the details about the Holiday Collection as well.  The projects have been out of this world and it's not to late to join us!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Happy Stamping!
