Stampin Friends - Happy Holidays Hop
Hello! Welcome to this month's Stampin Friends Happy Holidays Blog Hop. I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far and have gotten some inspiration for some crafty fun.
Now it's my turn to inspire you.
I decided to have some fun with a couple of the "Ho, Ho, Ho" stamps and created a Santa Suit Card and a Hershey Bar Wrap to match.
Focusing on making buttons from the stamps, I used our 3/4" Circle Punch for the sayings and the 1" Circle Punch for the black background behind them. The "Ho, Ho, Ho" stamp is from the stamp set "Labels To Love". Using the "Seaside" Emboss Folder gave the Whisper White Cardstock a fur like look. Cardstock used: Real Red for the Santa Suit and Basic Black for the Belt and Crushed Curry for the Buckle. I popped up the buttons and buckle with Dimensional.
A simple "Merry Christmas" stamped on the inside finishes the card.
For the Hershey wrap I used the stamp set from "Oh, What Fun", the 1/2" Circle Punch and the 3/4" Circle Punch. Since the Hershey Bar was a bit longer than the card I though a beard might be good to add to the top. Using a "Heart" Framelit from the "Sweet And Sassy" set I embossed it with the "Seaside" Folder and trimmed it before adding dimensionals to it and adding it to the top of the wrapper.
Since I wanted to add a saying to the inside, I tied a piece of Stampin' Up! Gold Trimmed Ribbon around with a tag saying "Merry Christmas".
I hope you have enjoyed my fun little projects and will try some of your own.
