OSAT Blog Hop – Let It Snow

One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop

Welcome to the November One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is Let it Snow.  We’ve got loads of snowy inspiration for you.  I know you’re going to love the variety!

For my creations, I decided to use Flurry of Wishes –

Flurry of Wishes Black and Vanilla card for OSAT blog hop from theartfulinker.com

I really love that the This is Christmas Specialty designer paper came with a black and vanilla design!  This paper was really the catalyst for all of today’s creations.

My card base is Very Vanilla.  Over that I layered a piece of the This is Christmas Specialty paper.

I also used a piece of the designer paper to line my Very Vanilla envelope.  You can find a template to line your own envelopes in my Library.

I stamped the large jar from Jar of Love in Memento Black onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  The jar was cut out with the Everyday Jars Framelits.

To the jar, I added two snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes.  They were also stamped in Memento Black on Very Vanilla and then cut out with the Snow Flurry punch.  The larger snowflake is adhered directly to the jar and the smaller snowflake was added with a Dimensional.  Both snowflakes have Basic Rhinestone centers.

The jar was added to a layer of Basic Black using Dimensionals and then this whole piece was added to the card front using Dimensionals.

After a adding trio of white gold sequins from the Fancy Frost mix, I used the fine splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge inked in Versamark and then heat embossed in Gold.  By doing things in this order, there’s just a bit of yellow gold on the white gold sequins.

The card was finished by stamping one Flurry of Wishes snowflake inside and then adding a length of Gold Natural Trim.

Next, I went on to make a gift or treat box.

Or at least alter the box — in this case two boxes.  I used the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes and removed most of the top from one box and most of the bottom from the second box.  On the short tab pieces that were left, I added Tear and Tape.  Simply fold the bottom tabs up and the top tabs out so that you can carefully fit the two boxes together.  Then with the box lying flat, push the tabs against the opposite box and burnish.

Next, I used the same This is Christmas Specialty designer paper and created a belly band.  It adds both a little decoration and hides the joining point of the two boxes.

After wrapping a length of Gold Natural Trim around the belly band, I added three Flurry of Wishes snowflakes.  Again, these were stamped in Memento Black on Very Vanilla cardstock and punched with the Snow Flurry punch.

All three snowflakes were adhered with Dimensionals and then finished with Basic Rhinestones.

This box holds a load of sweets or would be perfect for a special gift.
