Rhinestones on Perfect Details Texturz Plate

This was very relaxing though a little time consuming, but a lot of fun! I saw something similar in Papercrafts magazine and had to try it using Stampin' Up!'s great rhinestones and the Perfect Details Texturz Plate for the Big Shot.  When I finished, it looked glitzy and glamorous, and the fun "naughty" stamp from Tags Til Christmas seemed to make sense with it too.  A silver glimmer brad, some shiny clear tinsel and our 1/8 inch black taffeta ribbon finished this fun card quickly and easily.

Snowman Soup!

I received a similar snowman poop (just marshmallows inside :) )swap at Fort Worth Regionals that had a stocking cap and scarf on a 3X3 envelope, so I had to try a larger one with a top hat.  I will have these for sale for $3 this Saturday at the Edmond North High School Band Craft Show (Danforth and Fretz).  You may also choose to make these at Gift Class on December 8th if you'd like to make your own. It contains a cocoa packet, marshmallows and Hershey Kisses with the following saying on the back:

Pour the packet in a mug.
Add the Snowballs too.
And throw in the kisses
from the snowman to you!

Use the candy cane to stir in 6 ounces of hot water.

M&M tube Christmas Treats

A person can put almost anything on the top of these tiny little tubes. They are perfect for holding M&Ms, and would make cute stocking stuffers or even gift tags.  They (along with a couple of other choices) will be offered at my upcoming gift glass and will vary in price from 75 cents to $1. (The brads on the Santa coat make it cost more.)

Embossing on Embossing

For the technique challenge on Stampin' Addicts here:

Heat Embossing on top of Dry Embossing isn't new in the strict sense, but it is something we can do much easier now with the SU! embossing folders.

The system that worked best for me:
1. Emboss your cardstock using a Big Shot Embossing Folder.
2. Apply craft or other embossing ink to the raised surface. White Craft and a Q-tip worked best for me on these snowflakes. It really allowed me to keep the craft ink only on the raised portion of the image. (I used a sponge dauber to apply White Craft ink to the spider web folder a month or so ago.)
3. Huff on your Craft ink to be sure it is uniformly moist.
4. Apply embossing powder (I used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder). Shake off excess.
5. Heat emboss.
6. Finish your card.
