Warm Winter Wishes Blog Hop!

Good evening!

Welcome to another GinaK blog hop event! Tonight we're showcasing Carolyn King's adorable Warm Winter Wishes stamp set! Have you heard the story behind this stamp set - and Cammie's other Alzheimer's Awareness Stamp set Whimsical Autumn? If not, check it out in Cammie's own words HERE on GinaK's Idea Center.

My first card was made with Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly paper - doesn't it look like it was made for Cammie's coffee cup?

Next up is a Treat tin that I made for my chocolate loving daughter, Ashley... see all the sparkle for the Stickles on this adorable snowman?

The camera really picked up the glitter - I promise it doesn't look that gaudy in person! lol!

I was so happy to see the my Scallop envelope die fit perfectly within the Altoid tin ... it's little things like that that make me happy! lol! I trimmed off the envelope flap and rounded the corners and glued it right to the top of the tin.

Then, using a couple of Circle punches, I decorated the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup tops (mostly because the autumn wrappers didn't match my theme very well). Here's the little note that I included in the envelope...

Lastly, I have a card that was really fun to color - I paired Cammie's snowman with Gina's Gingerbread House from the Holiday Cheer stamp set. There are ton of stickles on this card too!

It felt kind of weird stamping the snowflakes in black, but since I covered them with stickles I don't think they ended up too bad. Here's the inside...

I just love your creativity, Jess! These are so cute! I don't think the glitter on the snowman looks gaudy at all. I always get frustrated that I can't capture it very well with my camera. I bought some tins from Gina's store a while ago and also found a bunch at a garage sale this summer; you've inspired me to get busy decorating them.
