Monday Montage Week #203


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.

Christmas Season-Season's Greetings!

Happy December!

I  truly can't believe that December has come! 2021 is flying by for me-how about you? And since Christmas will be here before I have time to blink, the Christmas crafting and card making is in full swing! 

Today I am joining in the Global Design Project Challenge #320 with a Christmas card featuring the Christmas Season Bundle! The Challenge this week is to case the designer! This is what I came up with!

This sketch is fantastic! It is so classy and elegant! With this sketch, I wanted to make a beautiful but more simple card so that the images in the Christmas Season Stamp Set can really shine! And I needed it to be fairly flat because it is going in the mail to some friends. It is so hard for me to resist adding layers and bling, but I did it! And I am so happy with the result! 

Here is a close-up!

And here is the original sketch!
