Countdown to Christmas Advent Wreath: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello friends and welcome to the official Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! We are 20 Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world, and you're visiting me in Calgary AB, Canada. 

Today's project is one that I've been sitting and sitting on, just DYING to share with you! I love a good advent calendar, and I'm always trying to come up with new and unique ways to incorporate the fun of advent calendars into Christmas decor. Stampin' Up! just released their new Annual Catalogue, and as soon as I saw the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes I knew another advent calendar would be in the making. These are the perfect size for a piece of chocolate, a Christmas ornament, a little love note, or a small toy.
I've used the new This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper to decorate each of the boxes, and the Bow Builder Punch to create a darling little bow for each box.
And you can't have a wreath without a big and beautiful focal point.  I've used the ⅝" Burlap Ribbon⅝" Gold Satin Ribbon, and some Linen Thread to create the bow, and then added a cute stamped tag with the Peace This Christmas stamp set.

I hope you like today's project as much as I do. I'm excited to add this to my Christmas decor this year. And for those of you who are local, YES I will be having a class sometime in the fall. :)

Now please go and visit my lovely and talented friend, Amy O'Neill to see what she's created.

Badges & Banners Card

Hello my friends! Last night was my SE Calgary Card Club and this is one of the cards I had prepared for everyone. I went totally wild with all my new goodies from the brand new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, so this baby is PACKED with fabulousness! 

Firstly, the new Badges & Banners Bundle = LOVE!
Badges & Banners Bundle - Clear Mount #142334 $43.50
Badges & Banners Bundle - Wood Mount #142333 $52.50

I stamped one of the badges using the new Calypso Coral Ombre Ink Pad and punched it out. These new ombre ink pads are SO fun! I have a few little tips to help you ink your stamps ombre perfectly, so check out this video:

Easy peasy. You'll be rockin' the ombre in no time. As I mentioned they are available in Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, and Bermuda Bay.
I also used the new Pom Pom Trim, Duet Banner Punch, and the new colour Peekaboo Peach. Oh, and that fancy circle is from the new Layering Circles Framelits. LOTS of new goodies on this one! You can purchase all of these supplies (and so much more) in my Stampin' Up! Shop.
