Big on Christmas Holiday Card

Today I am sharing several samples I made for one of my recent events.  My hostess wanted to see how our Heat and Stick product works.  I confessed to her that I was not always quick to use this product myself.  However, after playing with it, I couldn't wait to create some Christmas cards. 

Basically, Heat & Stick is an embossing powder glue.  Once you heat set it (just until "wet" – no more or the glue is dried before you want it to be), you sprinkle on glitter or other embossing powders and reheat so the other powder will stick on your item!

This card uses our Top Note die in a different way.  You run the die through the machine once, then turn it halfways and run it again!  It really makes a fabulous new shape for crafting!  The stamp set used in Big on Christmas, and I used the fine green glitter for the tree.

I Love the 80s! Punch Art Fun

Where were you in the 1980s?  I was in high school and college.  Techno music and games were prevalent.  To be honest, I never played Pac Man or Donkey Kong.  However, this summer I participated in the 1980s floor on VC Rocks.  Some of the items we created for our hotel "roommates" were in the 1980s theme.  So I came up with this cute tote for my package:

My camera didn't do the Pac Man justice – the face is in Daffodil Delight.  I used the Top Note Die (2), a small lunch bag, Sticky Strip, 1-3/4" circle punch, square punch (to punch out the mouth), and 3/4" circle punches for the dots.  The eye is the 1/4" circle punch.  I put some fun candy on the inside.

Totally dude!
