Festive Holiday Wreath Cards using the Gina K. Designs Wreath Builder Templates

Ho, ho, hellooo there!

Who’s ready for the weekend?! Right now I’m heading down to see my sweet baby niece for her first photos with Santa! I hope you have some festive plans coming up or at least some holiday crafting. That leads me to today’s post…I’m sharing two cards using the Gina K. Designs Wreath Builder Templates and Right at Home holiday stamps! I’ve been dying to use this stencil since I got it a few months ago and thought it might be fun to create some festive, holiday wreaths with it!

Let’s get started…

For my first card I pulled out the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set as it has several images that are perfect for this time of year. I started by placing the largest stencil into the top corner of my MISTI and popping in a piece of white cardstock cut to 4 in x 4 in into the open center. I aligned my stocking image towards the bottom and picked it up with the MISTI’s door.

I stamped it down, rotated my panel two notches and stamped again. Since the images I used were large I wanted to be sure there was enough space for the other elements. Instead of rotating the panel to the next notch, I decided to skip to the second notch instead. I continued adding images to my wreath and colored them in using alcohol markers. I popped the panel onto a 4 1/4 in x 4 1/4 in red cardbase and my first card was finished!

Oh! I also added some white pen detail on the stockings and a bit of shimmer to the stars using a clear Wink of Stella pen.

My next card makes my stamp-layering-loving-heart go pitter-patter! I used some the cozy images from Bits & Pieces: Winter to build wreath of some of my favorite things about the season. Beanies, mugs of warm brew, snowflakes…what’s not to love! I used the same process as before, but pulled out all my colored ink pads instead of my markers. In the center I stamped a greeting from Christmas Sentiments in a crisp, black ink.

Homemade Holidays Day #3 with Kari // Muslin Bags

Hello everyone!  Kari here with you today to show you how I decorated these cute muslin bags.  We are always searching for cute ways to present small gifts, am I right?!  As you've probably read all week, Nicole was so kind to send her DT a package full of fun decorative goodies.  Everything to a few boxes for treats, ribbon, a wooden ornament, among other fun stuff!

So today, I wanted to share how I decorated up these muslin bags.  I wanted to do them differently.  The first one you see is a more simple design and it wouldn't take no time to recreate this.  I stamped and die cut one of the pine images and the pine cone from the Christmas Foliage set, and also a banner from the gift tag die set, and stamped the sentiment found also in the Christmas Foliage set with some red ink.  To adhere it to my bag, I just used a tiny stapler, and stapled it to the bag.  Both of my bags, I have the small room sprays that I had purchased from Bath and Body Works, but you could also find similar at your local dollar store or retail store.

For the next bag, I "jazzed" it up a bit, and stamped and colored the Santa image from Holly Jolly Christmas. Once I was done with the coloring, I used my scissors and I "fussy" cut him out.  Then for the background of the bag, I inked up the Gingham Background stamp with red ink and stamped it down, and then added with some strong adhesive the strip of the pine trimming that was included in the box that Nicole sent.  At the top, I thought it would be fun to add a red jingle bell to finish it off.

It really didn't take long at all to decorate these bags, and you could easily add candy, room sprays as I did, small tealight candles, etc.  I had fun creating these today, and I hope it inspires to jazz up your packaging this holiday season!!

Homemade Holidays Day #2 with Amy K. // Striped Kraft Treat Bag

Hello!  Amy K. here sharing a treat packaging idea that is easy to whip up!  I love to "re-package" some of my favorites in fun holiday packaging and give to some of those on my list such as my mail lady, school bus driver, and hair stylist.  I also slip in a gift card too!  Nicole sent the DT an amazing box of goodies for dressing up your gift giving!

I love this striped kraft bag with an acetate window that was in the box.......so perfect for packaging one of my favorites......original Hershey's Kisses.  To make this special, I wanted to make my own tag to attach to the top.  I used the adorable Holly Jolly Christmas stamps to stamp the Santa face with Memento Tuxedo Black onto the bottom of a stitched die cut rectangle.  Santa was Copic colored and the "to and from" were stamped at the top.

To dress up my box, I simply folded some of the red and white ribbon over the top and adhered.  I added a snippet of the wired greenery Nicole included in the box along with tiny gold jingle bells on some of the red/white baker's twine.  To finish this, I clipped everything to the top with a gold glittered clothespin and tucked in my stamped tag!  The tag adds a simple homemade touch!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure to check back tomorrow for another Homemade Holidays post!
