Wow can you believe it's November already and soon it will be Christmas? I've got a couple great and simple projects you could create for Christmas in no time at all. I took my inspiration from the August-December catalog for my projects. I fell in love with the Merry Moose bundle last year and I was so happy when Stampin'Up! decided to bring it back for this year's holiday catalog. Stampin'Up! made a banner using this set and I just knew I had to make one too. I apologize in advance for the color on the banner, but there was no sun when I took pics of my projects and none in the forecast. Rest assured I used Real Red on this project. I was looking for a background to shoot my photo and decided my buffalo plaid fluffy shawl would do the trick. I think for the most part the directions should be easy just by looking at it, but if not, please feel free to post a comment. I did use the Stamperatus to stamp the buffalo check. That way I could stamp over it if I didn't get a good image the first time. I really like how this project came out. The complete list of products can be found below.
I then decided to use the extra piece of buffalo plaid cardstock I had stamped on my card. I cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly largest die. The layers of my card are from the bottom up are Thick Whisper White cardstock, a piece of the Black Glimmer paper in the holiday catalog and then another piece of Whisper White. I used the next to smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut my words out that I stamped in Real Red from Itty Bitty Christmas. The moose was punched out of Whisper White. I added some Elegant Faceted Gems and a bit of black Glittered Organdy Ribbon. The buffalo plaid piece, the moose and the sentiment are all popped up with mini dimensionals.
Well I hope you've enjoyed my projects as much as I've enjoyed making them. Buffalo plaid is part of my Christmas decor so I thought it worked out well for my projects this month as well.
