Booze Boxes

 I just love these stocking stuffers! I learned how to make them from fellow Demo, Deseree Krumm.

Here are my directions:

Deseree has a video if you'd like to see it here, although her measurements are different than mine because we used different types of mini bottles.

Nature's Harvest

 I just love coneflowers, so I was so happy to see this stamp set in the Fall Holiday Catalog. With the bundle I got more dies of flower silhouettes which are so fun to use. The cork paper is amazing, I love the look and feel of it. It gives such a nice texture to a card. I'm going to have to order some more! I stamped the coneflowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin' Blends. Cardstock colors are listed below each image. In the fourth sample, I used Pearls which I colored with a Bronze Stampin' Blend. In the fifth sample, I stamped the coneflower image in Blackberry Bliss ink on the Cork paper. Because the cork is so dense, the ink will NOT dry unless you heat set it.
