TicTac Snowman Container by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH White Daisy Cardstock, unknown light blue cardstock (from my 8 1/2 x 11 stash!), unknown ribbon from stash, Zig markers, CTMH Black ink, Creative Memories Circle Cutter, and CTMH Snow Friends stamp set (retired).

The Santatizer at the top is just a small bottle of hand sanitizer covered with cardstock (idea from here).  The tic tac container was made from this example.  Once you get started, these are easy to make and work great as stocking stuffers and small gifts.but

My Convention Card

Here is the card that I made to take to convention.  I am thrilled that I was able to make 72 cards!  I will post some of my favorites!  So something kind of funny….I had this post all ready to go except for the picture.  Now I sit down to finish up and I have everything packed, including all these cards…deep in the back of the van…in a box…in the bottom of the cooler…  So… I happened to keep this one.  The cards for convention are the same with the exception of the embellishments.  I used the Black/Grey sparkles instead of the bubbles that you see here.

Convention Swap Card by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Pirouette stamp set, Hello Blooms stamp set, Slate Ink, Art Philosophy Cricut CollectionWhisper CardstockBlack & Grey Assortment Sparkles, and Slate Satin Polka-Dot Ribbon.

For some of the cards I used up the rest of my Grey Flannel Cardstock.  It is a similar light grey to the new Whisper.

I didn’t realize until half way through that I could have saved some paper with this project.  I cut the 12×12 sheets of grey to use as card bases.  What I later discovered is that even though the Pirouette shape didn’t quite fit on the scrap I had leftover, it was enough since I was cutting part of it off the edge of the card anyway.  I finished the rest of the cards this way and was able to make a few more than I would have otherwise.  When I attached the stamped Pirouette image, I let it fall off the edge of the card, then I used my Cutterpede trimmer to cut off the excess.  This worked perfectly because I could butt the edge of the card right up to the blade and cut it straight, much faster than trimming with scissors.
