Kiss the Cook - Holiday Packaging

Counting down to Christmas, we have traditions in the family we love to do to remind us of the spirit of giving. One of them is baking our banana nut bread for our friends and family.

Every year, we come up with different ones and this years title is "KISS THE COOK Snowman". Thanks mom for pitching in the idea this year.

Christmas Sugar Cookie Card

Hello again! Today's share is an inspiration I got from Betty Crocker's cookies. I found a box of ready-to-bake homemade cookie in the kitchen counter and saw this beautiful picture of a sugar cookie. It had white confection snowflake trim on it with red candy dots on it. I decided to make a card of it and tried to come close to it. Well I tried. It was hard getting the right color of the cookie so I just took my retired CS, Creamy Caramel, and whooped one up. Yup, I hoarded..hihi. I had to, for the holidays. It's the color of cookie, bread, cakes and all that yummy stuff. SU! should bring that back.

Anyway, here's my card. I love Real Red (next to Cherry Cobbler CS), it went well with the cookie. Sooo festive.

This is a 5"x5" whisper white card.

Supplies Used:
- Real Red
- Whisper White
- Very Vanilla (for the small snowflake)
- Creamy Caramel (retired)
Stamp Set:

Xmas Containers - Candy Cane Christmas DSP

Last month, I found a container that I bought long ago. It must have just crept under the bed and had gone to my forgotten list..hihi. Anyway, I already decorated some containers a couple of years ago with DSP. This time I tried them with the Candy Cane Christmas DSP for yummy cookies my mom's going to make. In this picture, I put my small retired stamps to raffle away in my workshops when I pick a name from the Door Prize entree that were submitted. Cool idea for your workshop.

These containers are smaller than the usual containers you find in Costco filled with bulk goods (like Chocolate covered raisins, peanuts, etc.)

So many years ago, we crafted cookie jars or Cookie ingredient jars with those Xmas printed cloth on the lid. Do you remember those? This time I cut a piece of the Designer Fabric - Candy Cane Christmas (#121715) to match the DSP paper. Isn't that cool? I just cut a round piece which measured 1/2" bigger than the lid. Then, I placed batting material (polyester) to put padding (like a soft pillow) on the cover then sealed the fabric with glue gun!!

So that you don't see the ugly part of the glued fabric, I adhered a Tasteful Trim border from the Bigz XL Die #120893. Then I decorated with DSP #120809!!! Don't forget the 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon #109034.

SOOO EASY!!! Oh, I also put little Basic Pearl Embellishment #119247 in front and back of the container. Here is the back side. I used the Homemade Stamp #116978 with Real Red Ink Pad. Then punched it out with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch #118874

If you want to see my past containers, click HERE.

Supplies Used:
- Chocolate Chip Brown
- Whisper White
Stamp Set:
- Homemade #116978
Ink Pad
- Real Red
- Candy Cane Christmas #120809
- 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch #118874
BigShot Die:
- Bigz XL Die- Tasteful Trim #120893
Other Supplies:
- Basic Pearl #119247
- 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon #109034
- Designer Fabric - Candy Cane Christmas #121715

Penguin Punch Art Projects

We had fun last night with our Penguin Punch art and look at what we created with them. We have a card which I guess will be one of my cards this Xmas. We also made some Treat Cup goodies! The cups fit perfectly in front of these cutesies. All I did was adhere them in front of the penguins with M&M mints inside. Aren't they so cute! No need for complicated paper backing or openings behind. I found that it's easy to peel the cups from the Penguin without tearing them. They adhere back onto the penguin after the goodies are gone. Sooo Cool!!!

Now we're waddling through Christmas, here's a another punch art for your projects. I'm having a class this weekend on my Xmas Punch Arts and here's a sneak peek on one of those we're doing tonight and tomorrow night. Hurry and signup by emailing me.

Why penguins? I love them, alot of you love them and they just leave a smile on your face. Don't they? Does anybody remember Tuxedo Sam? I miss him. He's a Hello Kitty Product in the 80s that my sister and I collect.

As you all know already, I love to texture emboss my projects. My punch arts will have them too :) These penguins are sooooo cute and easy to make and I'll show you ways of using them in your projects in my class.

Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful weekend!

Christmas Cards - Embossing Part 2

Helloooo!!! It's time again for new cards. This group of cards were more like proto-types but it all came out so pretty that I decided to make them all. You may pick and choose which looks better but I think it can all be lovely Xmas card giveaways. It's so interesting how different it looks in just one element adjustment.
In fact, texture embossing is my favorite technique of all. It's just the best thing SU! ever invented. LOVE ITTTT!!!

These cards measure 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and will fit an A2 envelope. The very vanilla cardstock was cut at 4" x 5-1/4". I had to emboss 2 Very Vanilla CS with 2 textured embossing folder seperately. Then cut them in half to combine them on the card. Cover the middle part with the Bigz Tasteful Trim and you're set to embellish your card!
