Christmas project & some more cards

I've been busy stamping again this week. I have dozens of cards ready to add to my blog. I just have to take the time to add them. I'm going to change up the format a bit so I can get more cards up with less chat. Below each card I will list the supplies I used. I will add in directions on anything that I feel may need it. There are quite a few pictures today. I'll start with my Christmas gift project that is still in progress. I still need to refine it a bit by adding things like a velcro closure & the cards & envelopes. The cards will be a few all occasion cards.

This is a gift box that I am making for a few people on my Christmas list. It is designed to hold up to 10 cards & envelopes. I saw the design for this box at a stamping site and it was just $5 to download it. When I asked my hubby for the credit card he asked me to try making it first. If I couldn't figure it out, he's let me download it. We went into the stamp room and designed it. The base, which is the navy blue paper, is made from 4 sheets of paper. The insert pieces were cut with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 1. I really love how it's turning out.

Stamps: Snowflake-Unknown
Paper: Navy Blue Linen, Light Blue Linen
Ink: Mediterranean Blue Brilliance Ink Pad
Accessories: Spellbinders Build A Flake 1, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 1, Pilot Silver Paint Pen, Swarovski Crystals

I got the Spellbinders Create A Flake 1 Dies to make ornaments for my Christmas tree. My tree has all handmade ornaments. I have several tags that I've made over the years in shades of blues with touches of white & silver. I've been enjoying adding to it every year. This year I'm adding the snowflakes. They are doubled so you can see the snowflake from the front or back. They are simply cut out of scraps. I added a bit of Sparkles Diamonds from PSX, it's the same as clear Stickles. I've made 16 so far. I am thinking about getting the Create A Flake 2 set to make some more.

This Card was made for a stamper over at Club Posh- Sandollar. She sent me some of her awesome scrap papers. Last week, I went through all of my stamps determined to start using the one's I haven't used before. I came up with less than I expected. However, this horse & foal were among the pile. I bought it over 10 years ago! I watercolored it using Tombo markers.

I made this card for Char. No reason. I found the View Finder card directions in the resource section of Splitcoast stampers. I've been making a lot of cards that do something lately & loved this idea. I came together really easily. The designer used the colluzel circles for her card. I just used my circle Nestabilities.

My last card for today is another Halloween card. I am done with my Halloween cards. I made more designs than I have to send to people. LOL! I just have fun with halloween. This card is from Stampin with Dawn over at you tube. If you haven't looked her up before, you should. She has some great videos. This card is called a plastic shopping bag double slider card. It was really easy to make & I love how it came out.
