Christmas Gifts!!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones and got some "relaxin" done! I have FINALLY finished decorating the inside of my house for Christmas (will have pictures for ya this week) and now I need to finish the outside. I won't get to finish the outside today cuz' it is COLD and sleeting outside--YUCKO! We have to run some errands today & then I finally get to go in my craft room--haven't done anything in there for 4 days--YIKES--I miss it :o) I have a great Christmas Gift Ensemble for ya today tho'!

Today I get to show you a sneak peekie of new stamps that Clear Dollar Stamps is coming out with tomorrow! The stamp sets I used are Ornament Accents and Ornament String. I had so much fun creating this matching gift ensemble and I lovee this dp from Basic Grey, just perfect with this set me thinks. Everything was colored with Copics, accented with Stickles and the cs is spring moss & Pure Poppy by PTI.

This is a tin of hot cocoa (Archer Farms at Target) that I wrapped in cs after running it thru with my Cuttlebug Embossing folder. I used my circle nestabilities to cut the circles and used PTI pure poppy ribbon to make all the bows. This tin uses the Ornament Accents stamp set. The bag is a frosted tie bag from PTI that I filled with mini butter cookies (my holiday fave & great to dip in hot cocoa) and then covered the front of the bag and used the Ornament String stamp for this one.

This is the Christmas card and tag I made--it matches and was super easy to make too. I used the Ornament String stamp on the card stamping various ornaments in a row for a different look. The tag was made just using my circle nestabilities and punching a hole in the top and attaching a loop of ribbon.

The last gift item is a gift card holder--you can find the tutorial here. These are so easy to make and so fun to give too. I'm whipping up a batch of these for holiday gifts this year! I just stamped one ornament from the Ornament Accents set (ONLY $3.99 for 7 stamps) and the sentiment on the front. This closes with a ribbon bow.

This is just an inside view of the gift card holder. I stamped the Ornament String in gold palette ink along each end to dress it up! Make sure and visit all my Clear Dollar Stamps DT sistah's blogs (on sidebar) for all the other sneak peeks too!

Well I hope you liked all the projects today & I hope you're enjoying this last day of the holiday weekend too! I'll see ya back here with some more projects for ya tomorrow.
