Creative Charms Blog Hop & some Christmas Candy!!

ng. This adorable stocking can double as both a Christmas Ornament for your tree and a gift card holder.  Just flip up the cuff on the stocking and fill it with a gift card of your choice.  Anyone would love to receive one of these Christmas stockings!  The stocking was cut with my cricut and adorned with Christmas Holly and red Vintage Jewels.  A loop of the red Velvet Ric Rac Ribbon is used to hang the stocking!

Here is is open with a card inside!  I also used an embossing folder to add dimension and texture to the stocking.  The "Berries" are popped up with dimensionals.  Super easy and fun to make.  Here is a link to the pattern to make the stocking.

I made a few of these adorable Tissue Covers for Christmas gifts last year.  I used a Winter Theme so they could be used beyond the Holidays. The snowflakes are in the Winter Medley set of the Seasonal Medley collection and layered over the punched snowflakes from blue glitter CS.

They are accented with Gradient Gem Stickers to give them more sparkle and are also added to the snowflakes on the top border.  The panels on the tissue cover are embossed using the Cuttlebug embossing folders and inked to bring out the embossing.  These were a big hit with the recipients!

Chris' Kit - Breast Cancer Fundraiser!

Hello Everyone – for the rest of this month, all net proceeds from all Creative Charms web sales are going to be donated to the Susan Koman Foundation in memory of Chris Hertel.

Chris worked very closely with Creative Charms designing their catalog, creating the logo and all the new packaging and anything else they could come up with for her to create. This past July she lost her battle with breast cancer. She left behind a husband and two children. Their wish (and hers) is the find a cure to this disease so that families will no longer have to lose their wives, mothers and daughters to this horrible disease.

 They are also featuring a pink kit called Chris’ Kit:

Boo to You!!

  Another Halloween card to share! The card was made using the Halloween Vintage Frame stickers from Creative Charms as the "o's" in Boo.  The B is chipboard inked with Ranger Dried Marigold Distress Ink and then stamped with Dusty Concord Distress ink.  Tip: It takes a long while for the ink to dry on the chipboard so I suggest using a heat gun to dry it before handling it.

This Halloween Treat was made by cutting the DCWV CS with a Spellbinders die and then framing it with black card stock and rounding the corners.  I used one of the Halloween Twinkle Stickers also from Creative Charms to enhance it.

On October 28th, join us for a Blog Hop for Creative Charms and see all the wonderful creations from their Design Team.  There will be Blog Candy too, so be sure to join us!
