3D projects, cards, Catalogues, Christmas, Stampin' Up!


Not a lot of time left to get everything done for Christmas.  If you still need some quick treat boxes and you have the Home Sweet Home Thinlits then I have a very speedy box for you.



I cut 2 pieces of the house Framelits shape from the Candy Cane Lane DSP.  It was then simply adhered together by folding on the score lines and placing your adhesive on the side tab and the bottom tabs to assemble.  I used Fast Fuse for this as it is strong.  Punch 2 holes in the top section and then you can thread some Real Red Baker’s Twine to close it.

I had a left-over detailed tag in the Merry Tags Framelits cut from Red Glimmer Paper. I could then quickly stamp a ’25’in Real Red from the Merriest Wishes set and I cut that out along with a circle from Early Espresso.  These were raised up off the box with Dimensionals.

You could easily make a few of these  in no time.  They might make nice place settings at your Christmas Dinner Table.

I have another card for you today with the Merriest Wishes set and the Merry Tags Framelits.


On a piece of Whisper White I embossed the card with the Holly Embossing Folder that you can find in the Annual Catalogue.  I love the detail in this folder and how delicate it is when you emboss.  Then it was a matter of Heat Embossing the sentiment in Silver Embossing Powder and cutting it with one of the Merry Tags Framelits.  The deer tag was cut in Dapper Denim and then I cut a circle from the Silver Foil Sheet and adhered that to the back to the back of the tag.

Before I adhered the white card on to the Dapper Denim card mat I wrapped over some Silver Taffeta ribbon and adhered that down. I find Snail Adhesive the best thing to adhere ribbon down to your projects. The tags were raised up with Dimensionals and  then I finished them with a Silver Taffeta Ribbon bow.  The card base is Thick Whisper White.

I think this might be good to try in other colours. Must try that.  If you make one in a different colour do share it with me.  I would love to see.

Thanks for visiting me today.

Have an awesome day.

I really liked the Merry Tags Framelits when I saw them in the Holiday Catalogue.  I got to finally play with them the other week.  Now I can share the cards with you.  I wasn’t sure where this card was going when I first started it but I was happy with the end result.


It’s great to  have different shapes in the Merry Tags Framelits set.  You have the detailed tags and you have circles as well.  So many options to create different looks.

For this card, the card base is Real Red and the card mat is Sahara Sand.  I stamped the dots in Sahara Sand on to Whisper White.  A number of people have asked me what you would do with the dotty stamp in the Merriest Wishes set.  I stamped them a few times along the top of the White card reinking the stamp each time.  I think they make a nice background or you could stamp them on card and cut them with one of the circles. What do you reckon?

I cut one of the detailed tags in Red Glimmer Paper and stamped the “25” in Memento black and then punched it out with the 1 1/4″ Circle punch. The small ornament shape is stamped in Emerald Envy and punched with the 3/4″ Circle punch.

The ornaments were raised up on the white card with Dimensionals and then finished off with some Gold Twine and to finish I stamped the sentiment in Real Red.

If you haven’t noticed these yet then here they are for you.  You can find them on p 21 of the Holiday Catalogue.
