Christmas CASE

I taught this gorgeous card recently. The card was designed by my good friend, Paula Dobson. It uses the emboss resist technique with the Snowflake Soiree stamp set.

I used the new Midnight Muse ink and cardstock Mounted in Baja Breeze cardstock.

Altered tin and pyramid card

This is a project I made for club night last month.
The tin is a peanut tin. You need to
. carefully remove the bottom of the tin with a "safety tin opener". This kind of opener cuts inside the outside lip of the tin leaving no jagged or sharp edges. (you leave the pop top lid intact).
. remove the peanuts and wipe out the tin to remove oil and salt.
.  decorate the tin
. now you can put a gift (e.g. homemade fudge or cookies inside a sellophane bag, or perhaps a piece of jewellery or a handstamped scarf) inside the tin and seal it closed with Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects. The recipient of this gift will have to pop the tear tab to remove the lid to see what's inside. He or she will be amazed at how you managed to seal your personised gift inside a tin.
We also made a matching Pyramid Card. the DSP used on both projects was Floral District from the main catalogue.

Never too early for Christmas. Right?

Notice that gorgeous Christmas onament on the cover the the Holiday Mini?
I had a go at it and this is a pic of my attempt.
I am just missing an extra large pearl for the centre which will be in my next order from Stampin'Up!

I wanted some other ideas for my Ornament Keepsakes Bundle (pg 3 of the Holiday Mini) so after trawling the net and looking at a few ideas then putting my own spin on things, I came up with this...
And this..
Methinks I should do better at taking my photos... Maybe some research next school holidays?
