November Stampin' Friends Blog Hop: Happy Holidays


We are hopping with holiday projects this month. I chose to go with serene neutrals instead of traditional colors. 





The first part of this project was something I made for my customers at our Christmas Party/Stamp Workshop this past month. The freestanding tea bag pouch was a project I saw on Pootles Youtube channel. It was exactly what I was looking for. I adore hot tea and had been picking up interesting holiday inspired flavors. Click HERE for Pootles video of this amazing, no glue, no tape project. 


Opened up...I didn't use adhesive to secure the tea bags, but you could if you chose to. 


Doesn't this make a great duo?? By the way, Bigelow Toasted Coconut and Almond Bark tea is heavenly. I use a bit of creamer and sweetner with it. 






The card turned out exactly like I envisioned it. To add the soft white highlights on the Gray Granite cardstock for both projects, I just swiped the Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad directly on the paper. The trees and the sentiment were stamped with the matching Gray Granite Classic Stampin' Pad. The little snowflakes are from the Colorful Seasons Bundle. I used Wink of Stella on the snowflakes and on the edge of the card base to add sparkle. If you are wondering how this will fit in an envelope with the vellum and the cardstock hanging off the edge, the card base is narrower than normal. I just made sure when I adhered the layers that the finished size would be approximately 4.25 x 5.5. 



The little wispy threads are one of my favorite things to add to my projects: ordinary cheesecloth purchased at the grocery store. Besides the tea bags, the cheesecloth is the only non-Stampin' Up! products used for these projects.

Contemporary Deer Antler Card

Hey stampers! I don't know about you, but my life has been a bit busy getting ready for the two big holidays coming up. I had a few minutes this morning to put together a card that has been on my mind every since I received the Night Owl die set. When I saw the tree branch die, I automatically thought "deer antlers". I know, my menopause brain works in mysterious ways at times. Just ask my husband...

How cute is this? I didn't even think it needed a sentiment on front. It just speaks for itself!


I cut (2) of the tree branch dies and selectively trimmed them to make the antlers. The deer "face" is the small and large pine cone shape die from the Pretty Pines die set. The ovals are from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I used dimensionals to pop up the smaller face shape. I layered it up on a piece of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper. I think the red rhinestone for I used for the nose finished it off perfectly.
