CardzTV Challenge # 2 "Crafty Christmas"

Before I get to the challenge, I would like to apologize for not being around. I did not expect to be working as many hours as I am for as long as I have been. I am trying to make enough time for everything. I also am trying to get all the holiday stuff organized, as most of us are. (I'm hosting a cookie exchange this coming weekend). I have not had a lot of time to craft for my blog. :( Hopefully this will not be an issue for too long.

Now, onto the challenge....

This week the challenge at CardzTV is called "Crafty Christmas" (Make a Christmas project using CardzTV Stamps). I made a candy box/ornament/tag...


Finished Project: 1 3/4" x 2 1/4" x 2 1/2"

Materials:
Cardstock: White, Black, Blue and Vellum
Cricut Cartridge Sweet Tooth Boxes House, page 40 (Button 6, Button 16 and Button 26)
Cricut Design Studio
CardzTV with Mary "Holly Jolly" Clear Stamp Set, "From Our House to Your House"
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Candy Cane Stripe
White Pigment Ink
Glitter
Stickles, Green
Embroidery Floss, Red 1 Strand

I used the vellum as window panes, the glitter as snow on the windows and roof and the Stickles as the garland under the windows and the wreath on the door. The bow on the door wreath is made with 1 strand of embroidery floss. I thought the embossing folder made it look like siding on a house.

I was going to put Hershey Kisses or M&M's inside as an extra goodie. Make a small hole in the center of the top and tie a ribbon loop in order to use as a tag or an ornament. To use as a tag, you could stamp "To:" and "From:" on the blank side of the roof and use a white gel pen to write the names.

Don't forget that Mary at CardzTV is giving away 2 sets of stamps..."Encouraging Thoughts" and "Make A Wish" to the winner. Good luck! Please check out all the great projects from the other designers also.

Thanks for stopping by....I would love to hear from you, so leave a comment. (I wouldn't mind if you became a follower either). See you soon...

imagine what you could do....
