Make Your Holiday Shine with Foil-Mates™


 Hey Y'all!  Welcome to a wonderful fun hop chalked full of eye candy!  It's getting that time of year, all the sparkly and glittery things are being seen everywhere!  (LOVE!)  And now, with this new line from Gina K. Designs  and Therm O Web, its going to make your holiday cards, packages and giving look so good they will not want to open them!  :D  

First up, I'd like to show you a boxed set of cards I made using Gina k. stamps and the Foil Mates line:

For my little box of 5 flat card  with envelopes I followed Gina's video of  how to make a Memory Keeper!  It was back in 2010, but sooo awesome!  I have used the new StampTV kit also, Merry and Bright.  And now a picture of it opened and the cards:


And one last one from the set.  It's soo hard to show them in all of their shiny glory!  :D


These were so super quick and easy with the new holiday line of Foil-Mates™!  Which is coming in super handy for me this year...our little town is having their Christmas on the Main and I'm gonna do a booth this year!  Yay fun!  :D  With these, it is!

AND I have also made a TAG box...a box I will be selling at the Christmas on the Main too.  I havent decided exactly how many tags to put into each box yet though...what do ya think?  10?  15?   I would love to hear what you think!  

Here is my little tag book closed.  I used a simple tie on the side to keep closed.  On the front here I have used a die that matches Melanie's new set, Fabulous Labels Die set




Here is it is opened: 


I have some of the twine and ribbon already attached and will also include some extra ribbon and twine in the boxes.  I have decorated the inside of the box with Melanie's set, Fabulous Holiday Labels

AND just want to tell you to be sure and do the hop with all of us!  Because as usual, Gina is giving away a $25 Gift Certificat!  So be sure and leaves comments on all the blogs to increase your chance to win!  The winner will be announced  a few days after the hop in the Big News Forum on StampTV!

Just LOOK at all of the goodies in this kit!  Cardstock, dies galore, stamps  Oh my!  This will keep you busy making all of those Christmas cards!  The name of the sets in the kit are Merry and Bright and Sentimental Sentiments.  Here is my first card that I wanted to share with you today:

I cut an oval in the kraft cardstock and used some of the new Gina K Designs Fancy Foils in Glittering Green in the oval..that foil is sooo gorgeous!  The pine cones and branch and the sentiments are all heat embossed.  Tied a gold cording bow and was done!

Here are a few other cards I created with this kit:

This card I used for an example card on the Oct. 10th Friday Funday Tutorial that I did.  It was how to do collage stamping!  Super fun and quick card!

This card...well, can you tell I LOVE those poinsettias?  I do, and love that they have a matching die to them!  I also used the Scripty Holidays stamp set too.

And this is what I have made with it:


I was trying to make it look a little 'house' scene.  That black spot is a mouse hole...lol!  Noelle has been up to some mischief!  She stole a candy cane and knocked over a tree!  :D  I also made this card that I showed at the release party...sorta a Rustic Christmas look:



I also used the Fabulous Label Die set and Fabulous Holiday Fillers  set of Melanies too.  


================

Next is Chris' new set, Purrfect Christmas

And this is what I have made with this set:

Can you tell I love rustic looks?  LOL!  I water colored the tree and background and then added some white paste with a paintbrush.  I used some little charms from my jewelry stash too.  I also stepped away from Christmas card mode and made this fun and quick card:

If you own a cat, you can probably relate to what Im conveying here, lol!  I do love the kitty cats though!  :D

Ok, next is the new incentive set, Scripty Holidays.
