Celebrating the Countdown to Christmas

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting with us as we continue our 12 days of Christmas Holiday hop featuring projects to help inspire you during the gift-giving season. Every few days, we will be featuring wonderful projects between our blog and the Passionately Artistic blog.
So sit back, grab a cup of joe, and enjoy the inspiration.
Today we are highlighting how versatile our baby bling line is! Did you know the smaller size was especially made with you in mind?? That’s right. We wanted you to be able to use these little beauties even in the tightest of spaces, fitting with any sentiment you may be using.
As you saw from the hop, there were quite a few unique examples for these adorable little embellishments and we have even more inspiration to share with you.
Please welcome guest designer Maggie Lamarre as she showcases an adorable idea for your gift card giving this year.
(By the way for the person on your list who’s crafty, we do offer gift certificates.)

Supply list:
  • Rhinestones from Want2Scrap
  • Core’dination couture cardstock
  • Imaginisce Christmas Cottage pattern paper
  • Eksuccess/Inkadinakdo stamp, Eksuccess/Martha Stewart glitter pen, Eksuccess punch
  • Glue dots International
  • Staz-on Ink
  • Colorbok fluid chalk
  • Ribbon
  • Cricut Machine
How to:
  1. Cut 2 stockings from Very Merry Tags Cartridge sizes 5.5” using  Core’dination couture cardstock. Ink the edges and adhere both, leaving the opening on top to insert the GC.
  2. Cut the patch from Imaginisce Christmas Cottage pattern paper, ink the edges, and adhere to the stocking. Using the Martha Stewart pen, create faux stitching.
  3. Punch out a label from Eksuccess punch, ink the edges, stamp the word Joy, and adhere using a glue dot.
Now the fun starts! We are going to blingify this little stocking.
  1. Follow the edges of the stocking on both sides to create an arc with the silver rhinestones from Want2scrap.
  2. Add a row of bling right in between the label on top. Add ribbon and voila, you are done!  A very simple yet adorable gift card holder.
I invite you to experiment with the rhinestones/baby pearls and share with us your creation. We would love to see what you come up with!
