The window on the card front is cropped out with the Garden Gateway Dies.  Next, I embossed with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.  You can create any color rhinestones by coloring Stampin’ Up’s clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels with our Stampin’ Blends Markers.  For this project, I used Dark Poppy Parade.

The ribbon is from the All the Trimmings Combo Pack, and the sentiment is cropped with the Ornate Frames Dies.

I chose another gold element for the inside of the card.  I simply cut it in the center to shape it a little differently.

As always, I carry some of the elements over to the inside of the card.

Next, I created another Christmas card.

This card has fewer layers for those of you that want a lighter card.

The partridge is stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.

I used the #Elfie stamp set so much this season.  It certainly received a lot of love.  I wanted to ink it up one more time for Facebook Live.  If you missed it, you can see the replay here.

I create three projects every Thursday at 8:00 p.m. ET.  In addition to the video tutorial, I also have the project sheets that you can download at the bottom of this post.  They include all of the dimensions as well as products used.

I love the “No Peeking” image.  I stamped it three times with Memento ink and colored them in with Stampin’ Blends markers.

Craft Show Items for Facebook Live

Craft Show Items, treat holder, chap stick holder, altered notebook.

The two day, annual craft show that I have participated in for the past five years has come and gone.  It was a huge success!!  These were three of the items that I had available at the show.  I also created these for my Facebook followers on Thursday.  You can see the replay here.

First, I altered a 5 X 8 notepad.  The notepads come five to a package and I purchased them at Target.

This year, I added a pocket on the inside for receipts or coupons.

Next, I created a purse from a single piece of 6 X 6 DSP.  It can hold lots of different things.  For example, candy, jewelry or chap stick.
