The Joy of dies

Christmas is my favorite time of year and all the Christmas dies that are available now help make my season bright.

This card uses a die from CheeryLynn and accents from Stampin' Up! Once I learned to use waxed paper between the die and the paper it made the intricate dies much easier to use and to get all the the design out in one piece.

This card uses a die I purchased from HSN for the Holly Branch and part of a retired Stampin' Up! die from a couple years ago.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Happy crafting!

Christmas Gift Card and Treat Holders

I am enjoying the envelope liner dies that Stampin' Up! offers. I have been searching the web for different ways to use them and came across this option on several blogs. I don't know who posted the idea first so don't know who to give credit to, sorry.

These holders use the medium envelope liner. I use the red sticky tape to seal the edges because it holds so well. These are fun to embellish and a good way to use up "not current" supplies I have on hand.

 This little cutie uses the small liner. It is a good size for the small candy canes or the cute little coffee cup gift card that Starbucks is offering this Christmas season.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Happy crafting!
