Clear Boxes! Stamp Simply!

This weeks Stamp Simply Challenge is to use clear boxes! I am showing you a little different application today and suggest trying them out to package a small gift item! I found a set of four snowflake candles that I separated out and to gift individually.
Using designer paper from the KaiserCraft Dear Santa Collection, I lined the box bottom and used the same to make the filler piece. The stamped piece is from JustRite's Christmas Joy set! I punched out using my MarvyUchida scallop punches, added some beautiful crinkled ribbon and there we have it, a gift all ready for giving! I LOVE this simple and wonderful way of packaging! The uses for these boxes are endless! Let's see what you can come up with! Take a look at these Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Designer's clear box creations!

Stamp Simply Ornaments!

Decorating for Christmas is HUGE! Giving small homemade gifts is another BIG thing. So, for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge we are combining the two! Our challenge is to make a Christmas Ornament OR an item of Home Decor that could be used yourself or as a small gift to give. You may alter a store bought item, create something from scratch! If creating a gift item or home decor item is not on your agenda right now, then make a card with some sort of ornament on it, easy enough! Just have FUN!
I chose to make a pocket ornament! After adhering my paper onto my ornament, I also attached a half piece, placing the scor tape on the bottom and up the two sides. On the sides I placed the edge in a bit to create more of a pocket feature. Paper is Basic Grey's Jovial. And oh my, here is that spectacular trim again! I used it around the ornament and could not let the tiny bit left go to waste! I trimmed the edge of a piece of ribbon! Makes a super hanger inserted into the top ornament hole. A look at the pocket, I will be giving several of these to family members for Christmas this year. I needed a pocket to place a gift card! Then the recipient can hang on tree, hang on the wall, keep empty or fill with greens! Besides the trim, I utilized a Webster's Pages Bloomer, silk and twill ribbons! See the leaves? These are the fall leaves from Prima that I cut to resemble holly leaves! Making good use out of all the goods!

Here is another version! A bit ornate for me, but so pretty just the same! Love the velvet ribbon inserted thought the lace! Ornaments, Paper, Ribbons & Trim, Lace, Sticker Sentiment, leaves, and Scor tape are all found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! As always, all are welcome and invited to play! Keyword is ssnotime168 for those who upload at SCS. There is no time limit. You can play this challenge anytime at all. The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!

Just Ducky! JustRite!

JustRite is introducing another new Elizabeth Dulemba CLING stamp set, Just Ducky! And I created a birthday card for special two year old! October Afternoon DP, Prism colored cardstock, and Papertreyink white cardstock are the papers used. Here's a peek at the complete set! What a cute image along with many options for creating! Take a look at THIS most creative idea using Just Ducky created by Sharon Harnist! Don't you just LOVE it? The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Copic colored. Misc buttons, along with Martha Stewart Bakers string are the final embellishments to complete the card. Using an exacto craft knife I cut around the fingers to create a tiny pocket to place the star into. Machine stitching and Spellbinders Dies are also used on this creation. 5" x 5" is the finished card size. JustRite's Font, Mryiad Pro is used for the name on Just Ducky's card front. The number two is JustRite's Times New Roman font. There's nothing like personalizing your creations! And making them JustRite! Thanks so much for stopping by! Take good care!
