Merry Monday Christmas Challenge


Hello everyone!

I’m participating in a new challenge.  The Merry Monday Christmas Card #90 Challenge.  This weeks challenge is to create a Christmas card and use ribbon or twine.  To visit their blog, participate, read the rules or visit other participating blogs, click on the image below.

This is the card I made.  My inspiration came from two of the cards showcased in the 2013 Holiday catalogue from Stampin’ Up.


The recipe:

  • Cardstock/DSP: Cherry Cobbler; Very Vanilla
  • Kits: Merry Moments Simply Scrappin’ kit; Pop n Place Holiday Gift Tags
  • Ink: Gumball Green
  • Stamp: Wonderful Wreath
  • BigShot/Punches: Expression thinlits; Pretty Print embossing folder; mini punch
  • Embellishments: Basic Pearls; Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon
  • Adhesive: Tombo Multi Liquid Glue; Glue Dots; SNAIL; Dimensionals


Calm Christmas Stamped Muslin Bag


This is a great little bag for giving gift cards or little treats either alone or by attaching to presents.  I used this one to include a specialty Keurig coffee cup to a present.  And, Bonus! the Merry Christmas tag also acts as a gift tag.

The muslin bags are purchased.  The ink should be allowed to dry before handling; I waited 24 hours to be absolutely sure.  I stamped one ornament and punched it along with a second one to use as the tag for writing on.  This idea was cased with a few tweaks for my purposes.
