Today, I'm focused on the Holiday Mini Hostess set, Warmest of Wishes (page 5) with a few other stamps tossed in for good measure. This set consists of a leaf wreath, NOEL, Warmest of Wishes, Trick or Treating OWL and Heart pennant. All but the Warmest of Wishes sentiment are designed to fit in one of our punches, and the set provides stamping fun for four Holidays.
One might think I'd go in time order, but I'm starting with the Christmas card! Warmest of Wishes could be used any time in the winter since it just has snowflakes, but I think it combined nicely with the NOEL for this card which is a square cross over. I saw this on SA member Jennifer Timko's blog and thought it was a cute size. I only diagonally cut the card front to create the pocket for the other side though.
The NOEL is only attached at the top with dimensionals so that the bottom slips over the pocket sleeve when inserted in the card. I used a diagonal from the Letters to Santa dsp....I hope it doesn't make you dizzy....and then, added our polka dot scalloped edge ribbon (inside out) and a few bits of rhinestone bling.
A what is it? moment....This is a covered napkin ring that I hope you like. I used a paper towel roll (cut to size) and attached the Spice Cake fabric (page 18) to it (sticky strip on the inside). I then stamped the Leaf Wreath in a variety of fall colors on Pool Party cardstock, punched it with the 2-3/8" scalloped circle punch, punched the center with the 1-1/4 punch and placed it over the circle found in the fabric.
Next is this fall sign...I went simple--Surprise! (Not really I know.) I used the Big Shot with the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet in More Mustard and of course the Perfect Pennants Die....The Spice Cake Designer Series Paper (page 17) provided most of the inspiration for this banner....I really enjoy that paper-beautiful colors and patterns! (Maybe because the colors match my blog?) The ends of the banner are our giant Spice Cake Buttons in More Mustard (page 18).
I'm...Batman! WHOOOOO's gonna give me some candy or a Moon Pie in a ribbon slider? The Adam West version (with boots) in really dark blue instead of black I guess.... :).....and his little sister in her fairy costume. (She's wearing a leotard) I just thought it was strange that the owl was trick or treating without a costume, but with a mask, so I couldn't resist.
They are campy, but my girls love them. The Moon Pie Slider features the Haunted Forest a la carte stamp from page 43 of the Holiday Mini. The butterfly punch fairy's wings were coated in our new Dazzling Details glitter glue (page 41)....Easy and FAST.....I just had to wait for it to dry.
