Feeling a little merry...

Hey friends!

I am feeling just a bit merry. Maybe because I finally had a minute to make a banner from an idea that has been peculating in my head for a while. I used the largest die from Stampin Up's label framelits to cut Real Red and Lucky Limeade cardstock and the next largest die to cut DSP from the Festival of Prints DSP stack; I used a smaller size die on a piece of whisper White which I embossed with the fancy fan folder and spritzed with frosted white shimmer paint. I cut the letters from Red Glimmer paper using the junior type sizzlits. I embellished with a variety of Stampin Up products. I think it's festive and I'll be displaying at my desk at work.

You can almost see the shimmer from the shimmer paint spritzed

added embellishments included rhinestones, buttons, pearls

Speaking of work, I am participating in a cookie exchange at my office. I decided to package my cookies in Stampin Up's kraft boxes. I heat embossed snowflakes using a mixture of white and iridescent ice embossing powders then stamped more snowflakes with Versamark. I plan to add a belly band and bow made from Stampin Up's Be of Good Cheer DSP. I'll post a picture of the finished cookies and boxes soon.

Just waiting for cookies!

 Hope you are also feeling a little merry!
