Christmas Cards for Teachers

This year I didn't have enough time to really spend on making Christmas cards, so when it came time to get the teacher gifts ready I wasn't quite prepared.  Thankfully today I had a few extra minutes that I could devote to making some cards.  I had recently picked up a new DCWV Christmas stack and it was quite easy to put to use.

Supplies: Paper: SU (Crumb Cake & Real Red) & DCWV (??); Ink: SU (Real Red); Ribbon: SU; Stamps: SU (??); Misc: Pearsl, Scor-Pal, Flower

SU Paper Pumpkin - November 2013

Since the start of Paper Pumpkin program I have been receiving the wonderful boxes of goodies, however, I never had actually taken the time to make one.  I usually watch for it to arrive and open it right away to see what's inside, but never taken the 30 minutes to create.  Since I hadn't had much time lately to make any cards, I decided to pull it out and give it a try.  What a wonderful kit of supplies!!!!  I made the card as directed, then decided to branch out.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up

Hand Sanitizer Holder

The other day I bought some of the Bath and Body Works Mini Hand Sanitizer to give as Christmas gifts to the girls dance teachers.  I decided that I wanted to have a fun way to wrap it and thanks to google I came up with this.  I had to modify the original pattern in order to fit the case that the sanitizer goes in, but it's a super easy and fun project.  Here's the link to the blog that has the instructions.

I also added a little gift card to the gift and made a super simple holder which I ended up attaching to the back.

Supplies: Paper: DCWV (Christmas Stack and Christmas Cardstock Stack); Ink: TH (Mowed Lawn); Punch: MS (Optic Dot with corner), SU (Word Window, 3/4" Circle, 1 1/4" Scallop Circle), CM (Corner); Ribbon: SU (Trim Tinsel) & Celebrate It; Embossing Powder: Ranger (Seafoam White); Misc: Scor-Pal & Scor-Tape

Card Exchange - Three Tiered Card

Every year in December the Stampin' Up Club that I belong to does a card exchange.  There are no rules about the what you make for the card, you can use any products you like.  This year I was late starting my card and was worried about what I'd make.  After checking out Pinterest I came across a Three Tiered Nested Pull Card.  This seemed like such a fun card, so I decided I would go with this one.  I also knew that I wanted to make a paper flower for this card.  I am really pleased with the end results!!!

You can find the tutorial here.
