Peppermint Cream Sandwiches

Published by under 3D projects,Christmas,punch art

It’s that time of year when the kids are finishing up school and kinder, and all their other activities, and there are lots of people to thank. This year I’ve had fun making Christmas Tree ornaments out of the wonderful scallop punch, a couple of circle punches and yummy peppermint cream chocolates from Cadbury’s sandwiched in the middle. They make fun little treats and look great when done up in a gift box.

 

These are acetate ‘matchboxes’ I made for the girls in my Stampin’ Up! group at the recent Melbourne Regional training day. They perfectly fit 3 of the Peppermint Cream Sandwiches inside. The slide-off ‘lid’ is made from clear acetate sheets (similar to overhead transparency sheets) which are available from office supply shops.

  

 

 

This one (above) features the Level 2 Free Hostess Set Spring Solitude – now that is one understated stamp set! When I first saw it I thought ‘not me’, but it has really grown on me. With any of the 2 Step stamp sets it takes a little more effort to see their potential, because it’s not immediately obvious what you can do with it, but let me tell you this is one great little versatile set! Colours: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum.

Better get back to the chocolate, oops I mean stamping…

November Promotion: Single Markers!

Published by under cards,Christmas,General,specials

BREAKING NEWS! For the first time ever in Australia you will be able to order the fabulous Stampin’ Write markers individually, and for the fantastic price of only $4.95*. Available from 10th – 30th November.

The dual-tip markers have a brush tip at one end, perfect for colouring your image or applying ink directly to your stamp, and a fine tip at the other end for journaling. And because the markers are available in Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive colours you’ll be able to match them perfectly to your cardstock, ribbons, brads and buttons.

This is perfect if you’ve been eyeing off the markers but only want select colours, or if (like me) you need to replace a couple of your most-loved markers! LOL.

For the full list of available markers click here.

One of the best things about markers is that you can colour a stamp with different coloured inks for a complete look, as in this Christmas card. It uses the Season of Joy stamp set and Holiday Harmony Designer Series paper, both of which are only available until the end of November when we say good bye to the Spring Mini catalogue and heeeeeello to the Summer Mini!

Stamps: Season of Joy
Inks & Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke
Other: Burgundy narrow grosgrain ribbon, Holiday Harmony DS paper
