Tips and Tricks Holiday Edition 2016 1. Using washi tape along the top edge of any cello bag quickly makes a coordinated gift when paired with a card in the same "Suite". 2. Laying a strip of washi tape sticky side up add some floral wire down the middle then sandwhich with the same washi tape for matching twisty ties. 3. Use our "New Years Stamp set" for more than December 31. Use it for back to school greetings and tags combined with a cello bag and topper, also using the Sweet Home stamp for a cute school house. Using the large gusset bags 17 inches long filled with back to school supplies or Kleenex and bacterial wipes or sanitizer. Great new "teacher gift ideas". 4. Don't forget our furry friends that accompany the many trick or treaters. Using our new 2x8 cello bags to package 2 milk bone treats! (Use milk bone brand so owners recognize the brand). 5. Two of the bundles have the matching punches that coordinate. They are Holly Berry and Holly Hat Builder. Using the Photopolymer stamps adhere the stamps directly to the top of punch. Ink the stamps by tapping on top of the punch then stamp with the punch as if it was a block. This ensures perfect punching of all parts with little waste! Ingenious!! 6. When using Glimmer Paper if you plan to POP or glue to it use the tip of your scissors to remove the glitter for a better "Stick".

For this card I used Soft suede cut 4.25 x 11 scored at 5.50-7-9-10.50 the front piece is 3 x 5.50 and scored at 3.50-5
I used 1 piece of very vanill cut 4.25 x 5.50 to stamp all the pieces. I used Baked Brown Sugar to stamp the fireplace and mantel. Bough and wreath are in Garden Green the fire and the stockings are in stazon. I colored the logs with crumb cake-the fire was daffodil delight, pumpkin pie, and real red. The stockings were in daffodil delight and cherry cobbler.using the hearth and home framelits cut your pieces out. I added a cherry cobbler bow mad out of heavy cord. And stamped my greeting in cherry cobbler and popped up on the wreath.
