Avery Elle–Chalet and Treat Bag & Tag Elle-Ments!

 

Hello Friends!!

 

I’m suuuuuper busy getting caught up on some deadlines before the grandkids arrive for the weekend!  Why does it seem like there just aren’t enough hours in the day when you have deadlines looming over your head?  *sigh*  At any rate, I wanted to pop in and share another project that I created using the new Chalet Stamp Set and coordinating dies, along with the Treat Tag & Bag Elle-Ments -  all from Avery Elle Stamps!

PRODUCTS USED:

Chalet Stamp Set
Chalet Elle-Ments
Treat Tag & Bag Elle-Ments
Postage Stamp Elle-Ments
Dotted Borders Elle-Ments
New Moon Dye Ink

 

I so love bringing hostess gifts to friends’ homes when they’re kind enough to have us over.  I’m not a baker, but I can bake cookies.  The new Treat Tag & Bag Elle-Ments are PERFECT for throwing together a really cute paper-crafted hostess gift.  I used the new Chalet Stamp Set and coordinating dies, along with the tag die from the new Postage Stamp Elle-Ments to create the tag.  I also used the Dotted Borders Elle-Ments to create the snow banks on the tag.

I die cut the tag a second time from patterned paper, and stamped the sentiment from the Chalet Stamp Set.  Easy peasy!!

 

That’s it for me today, friends.  I hope I’m able to get my crap done today, because if I don’t, there’s going to be some serious stressing going on at my house!  Yikes!!  I hope you have a great and stress free weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s time for you to rush on over to the My Favorite Things Boutique and buy the Snowflake Sparkle Card Kit!  It’s okay – I’ll wait for you to come back!  And please do come back because I have more fun samples to share with you!

Okay, so I am not a quilter, but when I saw the snowflakes from the Simply Snowflakes Stamp Set and how lovely they looked layered together, it occurred to me that they’d be amazingly beautiful on a quilt square – namely the Quilt Square Cover-Up Die-Namic!  So I paired it with the Simply Snowflakes Stamp Set, the coordinating Simply Snowflakes Die-Namics and the Peaceful Words Die-Namics - all from the Snowflake Sparkle Card Kit - to create this sweet little card.  I was pretty darned happy with how it turned out!  I’ve listed the products that I used below.

My final project was another fun one to create!  I die cut the Silver Sparkle Card Stock from the kit using the scalloped rectangle from Blueprints 27 Die-Namics.  The image panel was die cut using the stitched rectangle from the Blueprints 20 Die-Namics.  I stamped the sentiment from the Snowfall of Blessings Stamp Set and die cut the largest snowflake from the Simply Snowflakes Die-Namics.  I stamped the coordinating snowflake stamp from the Simply Snowflake Stamp Set onto a piece of acetate (using Jet Black Staz-On Ink) and adhered it behind the snowflake aperture.  This way, the detail of the snowflake shows and the silver sparkle behind it adds some super fun bling!  I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins and some black rhinestones (as I look at it now, those that I added rhinestones to kind of look like eyeballs – I probably wouldn’t do that again!  LOL) for some extra texture and interest!  Again, I’ve listed the products that I used below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I’m off to get my hair done and run a few errands.  I love days like today!  I hope you have a great day, as well!!

My second project features the Simply Snowflakes and Snowfall of Blessings Stamp Sets, the Simply Snowflakes Die-Namics, and the Silver Sparkle Card Stock, all products included in the Snowflake Sparkle Card Kit.  I used the Inside & Out Stitched Square Die-Namics to create a tunnel tri-fold card.  Here’s a GIF that I created showing all three positions of the tri-fold card.
