Mr. Snowman Gift Box

Happy Day to Everyone!!! It is my turn to post over at Wild Orchid Crafts Blog so I would love for you to drop over and become a follower. Each day we have a posting to show you many different ways that we have used the wonderful products from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop. Thank you!!


Today I have made a gift box for a special someone who loves snowmen...and of course will love the gift card I will place inside...lol

The double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Fancy Pants Saint Nick collection. For the snowman I used three different sizes of styrofoam balls that I cut in half and covered them with Prisma Glitter. The scarf is lengths of DMC floss and the arms are stems from WOC roses. I have used WOC Self-Adhesive Pearls and Rhinestones for the buttons, eyes, and nose. I made the stovepipe hat with chipboard. The fence is from the miniature section and I have added Snow-Tex and Diamond Dust to the fence as well as the ground. The trees are decorated with more rhinestones and chipboard stars. I have used Carnations, Aster Daisies, Gypsophilia, and tiny silk bows for the floral treatment and a Decorative Metal Corner


This view will hopefully show the dimension of the snowman and the fence. I added a stripe grosgrain ribbon around the box and a couple of satin bows.


I have also decorated the inside of the box with a chipboard sentiment and a small kraft pocket with another satin ribbon for a gift card.

Thank you so very much for dropping by today and I hope to see you again real soon!! Until the next time, enjoy your moments and minimize the stress of the holiday season!! Big Hugs!!


WINNER at Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF!!


Happy, Happy Day to everyone!! I hope your week is going very well and that the stress of the holidays is at a minimum! I am pretending that the holidays don't exist!! Haha!!

Thank you all so much for participating in this week's Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF. I have done alot of soul-searching and have decided that I will let you know that this is the last of the prizes until after the holidays...and then after the beginning of the New Year, I will be deciding if I want to continue the weekly opportunities for you all. Surely you all recognize that this has been quite an expensive endeavor for me over the past year and since I also pay all shipping to places all over the world, it is constantly getting much more expensive as shipping costs continue to rise. So we shall see!! If you have suggestions or recommendations, I would love to hear them!!

Red & White at WOC, 24 Days of Christmas at Whimsy, AND SWEET STUFF!!!

Gosh, Happy Monday to everyone!!! After a marvelous weekend, I have some excitement to share with you!

To begin, today is the first day of the new challenge over at Wild Orchid Challenge and for this fortnight the theme is RED and WHITE. As always there is a very nice prize for some lucky participant from the wonderful people at Wild Orchid Crafts shop! So come on over and show us your lovely red and white creations!!!


Next, there is a FUN and exciting 24 day event over at the Whimsy Inspirations blog where there are prizes galore including a GRAND PRIZE at the end of the event. Although there are prizes scattered throughout, you will be given a secret letter each day. You will collect the 24 letters and make a four word phrase at the end of the event to be in for the GRAND PRIZE. Leave comments on each of the DT members' personal blogs and the Inspirations blog each day and you will be in for the SPOT PRIZES. You will find all of the rules and instructions on Day 1 of the event HERE. In order to get my SECRET LETTER today you will need to visit the Whimsy Inspirations Blog.


For my card today I used the darling little SugarBerry Bliss from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection illustrated by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Home for Christmas paper pad by Papermania. The sweet image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a bit of Prisma Glitter. For the left side treatment I used some lovely White Net Lace topped with narrow satin ribbon and a double flat bow of white organza. The two sparkle snowflakes are from my stash. The flower treatments are Tuscany Rose, Open Roses, Holly Leaves, and Bead Berry Sprays. I finished the front with Self-Adhesive Pearls on the corners.


For the inside of my card I used a couple of diecuts made with the Tall Timber Die. The trees were covered with Prisma Glitter before decorating with Self-Adhesive Rhinestones and tiny red satin bows.

And finally....

SOME SWEET STUFF!!!!



I have 2 extra little SugarBerry Bliss stamps that I would love to send to sweet new homes!!! From the comments received below before Thursday, December 5 at 8 AM EST, their new owners will be selected by Mr Random.org and they will be traveling to their new abode!! Good Luck!!

Thank you so much for dropping by today and I would love to know what you think of my card!! Have a marvelous week and until the next time I send BIG HUGS!!!
