It's that time again! Monday Montage Blog Hop time! The Christmas Season is already in full swing! What kind of Christmas crafter/stamper are you? Do you plan ahead and make all of your projects ahead of time? Or do you cram in as much Christmas crafting as you can in December? I am firmly sitting on both sides. I do try to make as much as I can ahead of time, but there is always plenty of crafting and card making left to do in December! So, today I am sharing three easy Christmas projects made with the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite, that I hope will help you in your preparations for the holiday season!
I'll start with a little info about the card! First of all, the hardest thing about this card was fussy cutting the little cookie images from the Gingerbread & Peppermint 6x6 Designer Series Paper (DSP). And I shouldn't even use the word hard-it just took a few minutes to cut them out. The rest of the card was a breeze!
The majority of this card comes from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Card Pack! If you haven't ever bought a Memories & More Card Pack, do yourself a favor and grab one today! They are great for scrapbooks, but they are perfect for quick and gorgeous cards as well! I cut down two of the larger cards for the background DSP, used one of the cookie sheet dies, one each of the adorable oven mitt and spatula dies, one sentiment and three little red circles to complete this card! SO easy! I used Basic White for the card base and for the piece behind the cookie sheet so that the cookies would stand out and that was it!
Next Up is this cute little gift jar that I re-purposed!
Have you ever heard of Cold Infuse Water Enhancers? They are great for adding a bit of flavor to your water without any sugar. And the label peels off the plastic jar and you are left with a great option for a quick gift! And the lid is already silver-so festive!
Here is the top of the jar!
I used Real Red Cardstock and Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP (I had to adhere to pieces together so it would go around the jar) and Real Red 3/8" Sheer Ribbon to make the belly band. The scalloped circle and circles are from the Layering Circles Dies, the sentiment is from the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set, the labels are from the Seasonal Labels Dies and so is the tag! Just cut one end off of the label, add a strip of DSP and punch a hole is the top, add some Simply Elegant Trim and viola! You have a tag! The little Sticker snow flakes in the Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Card Pack and some Basic Rhinestones added just the right amount of bling!
And last but not least...
This goodie bag makes the perfect little gift! In this case, a December birthday gift! The tag is created the same way as mentioned above, and the sentiment is from the Shaded Summer Stamp set, heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.
