ADORABLE GIFT BOXES WITH CELEBRATION LABELS DIES

I couldn't wait to make these adorable gift boxes!  Credit for inspiration goes to Ericka Cerwin at PinkBuckaroo.com. She made a large box using the largest Celebration Labels Die in a Fall theme.  I've switched it up to a holiday theme, and came up with measurements for the smaller boxes which I will share below.  These are so much fun to make!

The celebration dies make such a beautiful box top with it's curvy edging and stitching outlining the sides.  

I also used the In the Pines Bundle for stamping the pine trees and die cutting the pines. Love, love, love this bundle!

Plaid Tidings DSP is added to the top to bring a country feel to theses boxes.  Shaded Spruce and Crumb Cake are used on the trio of boxes, and Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White are used on the single box below.

MAKE A PINWHEEL QUILT CARD!

I'm a quilter and love quilt patterns.  It's so much fun to make a card using a quilt pattern! This Pinwheel pattern is one you will want to add to your card recipes! It's easy and beautiful!  It's also a great way to use up scraps of paper!  I've made this one for Christmas, but it could be for any occasion.  

Pinwheel card2

I made these cards a couple of years ago, but just saw a video tutorial on stampingwithKristina.  The sizes below are what she used.

You need to use DSP with two contrasting colors or patterns.  I've used the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.  (I love the gold foil accents in this paper.)  My card base is Pretty Peacock with a layer of Whisper White card stock. I embossed the Whisper White with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder to give some texture and dimension to the mat layer.

Measurements for paper are:

Card base - 11 x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2"; Whisper White mat layer is 5 1/4 x 4"; Squares are 1 1/4" (4 each of two different patterns); large layer squares are 2 5/8" for base of small squares.

How to Make a Herringbone Pattern Card Using Adhesive Sheets

I just love this Herringbone pattern!  It makes me feel like I've quilted on a card. I saw a tutorial by Debbie Mageed at Secret Stamper.com where she made a herringbone pattern on a card, and decided I had to try it.  I decided to use one of the new Adhesive Sheets from Stampin' Up to adhere the strips of paper onto the cardstock.  I loved how easy it was to use, and want to share that with you!

Herringbone card2

I used pieces of Gilded Autumn DSP that had copper of gold foil on the paper.  I also used plain Gold Foil Paper and I love the elegant look it gives the cards. What a great way to use up strips of paper!

Here's another card created using the Ornate Garden DSP:

The strips of paper are cut at varying widths - 1/4", 1/2", 3/4" and then placed on the card in 4 different distinct sections.

Here's the video tutorial:
