Last-Minute Holiday Ideas from the RemARKable Stampers

Are you a "Last-Minute Lucy?"  I know I am, although I am trying to change this.  :-)  It is a busy time of the year, but there is always time for creating!  So, this month's theme for the RemARKable Stampers blog tour is "Last-Minute Holiday Ideas."

The first project is a cute little ornament you can hang on the tree or use as decoration on a gift.  I just love this little penguin from the Snow Place stamp set, and I am so happy this stamp set and the coordinating framelits are going to carry over!  Yippee!!!  I dressed him in a Real Red scarf and earmuffs to keep him warm in the snow.  Isn't he just the cutest? 

Snow Place Photopolymer Bundle    #140844    $45.00

The next project is quick and easy!  This ornament is made with strips of our gorgeous Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum -- on sale now for only $7.70!  

Oh, What Fun Stamp Set    #140386    $21.00
Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum    #139597    $11.00  NOW $7.70

I cut 1/2" strips of the red striped designer series paper and curled them with the bone folder.  My ornaments are "snap-together" ornaments, so I simply filled an ornament with some curled strips of paper and snapped it together.  I stamped the greeting with Real Red ink, and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch. I pierced a hole in the top corner, then threaded some Silver Cording Trim through it and tied it to the top of the ornament.  

My final project gives you a little sneak peek of a new product that you can find in the new Occasions Catalog that launches on January 5, 2016.  I love the new World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!  Demonstrators can pre-order new products before the general public, and this was the first item on my pre-order list!

Holly Jolly Greetings Clear Mount Bundle    #140865    $31.25
Embellished Ornaments Clear Mount Bundle    #140857    $41.50

I wanted to make a card that could be used for either Christmas or Hanukkah, and this "Peace on Earth" card fills the bill.  The Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set, Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies, and the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies are all carrying over as well. Yippee!  The sparkle from the silver glimmer paper ornament is hard to capture.  It is beautiful!  

So, I hope you have enjoyed these projects.  I can't wait to see what Missy has created for us this month!  Just click on the icon below or click on this link:
