Hip-Hopping 12 Days of Christmas Creating- Day 6

WARNING: MOM SKIP THIS POST...GO TO LAURA'S BLOG NEXT!



Welcome all of You Hip-Hoppers!


I hope that you joined me from Robyn's gorgeous blog. She is so talented...just looking at her stuff makes me want to stamp! If you haven't come from Robyn's, then you need to get this hop started right and head on over to Angela's Unity blog.

Now to share with you a little card that I created with one of those cute little snowmen. It goes without saying, that I am absolutely in LOVE with these little stamps!


Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Snowman stamp
*K&Company papers
*Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing
*ribbon
*Marvy Uchida oval punches
*watercolor pencils
*Martha Stewart border punch

I colored her just using a touch of grey-blue watercolor pencil around the edges. Some teal to her hat and flowers as well as a tiny bit of bling, and she is good to go!

********************************************
And now for my Day 6 gift for our 12 Days of Christmas Creating. This is a simple little gift bag full of 6 notecards (2 of each design.) This particular one is for my mother, but it would be a great little gift for a teacher, friend, or neighbor.

The little bag is exactly like the ones that I used for Day 2's gift. I simply stamped on it using StazOn ink and then added the buttons and ribbon.
Supplies used for bag:
*Unity Stamp Co. Flirty Flowers kit
*buttons
*American Crafts ribbon
*StazOn jet black inkpad
*FabriTac


All of the cards have the same basic layout. They simply change in the way that they are oriented and the placement of ribbon/embellishment.
Supplies used for Monogram Card:
*Unity Stamp Co. Tea Time Toile
*Unity Stamp Co. Formal Alphabet
*Bazzill Cardstock
*Basic Grey paper
*Marvy Uchida oval punches
*lace trim
*Martha Stewart border punch



Supplies used for Friends For Life card:
*Rhonna Farrer paper
*Dream Street paper
*Martha Stewart border punch
*Marvy Uchida oval punch
*American Crafts ribbon
*brads

Supplies used for Butterfly Card:
*Basic Grey paper
*Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing folder
*watercolor pencils
*glitter
*Marvy Uchida Circle punch
*Martha Stewart border punch
*buttons
*eyelet trim

This is a super-simple and quick gift to make esp. if you assembly line them and make several at a time. Another idea would be to fill it with Thank you cards because we ALL need those after the holidays are over.

****************************************************

Now hop on over to Laura's blog to continue on with your hop. My goodness, that girl can stamp so I know that you are going to see some gorgeous things there. You are getting close to the end now...
