Royal Blog tour

Welcome to my castle stop, my name is Kathy White and my stamp set I am showcasing is Season of Joy.
It's been been around in catalog awhile so I wanted to think outside the box beyond cards!

Candy jar: I used circle scissor plus to make topper to this mason jar and then added a tag using 2 tag die with big shot.  Great idea for upcoming holiday gift giving.




Christmas countdown: Using a chipboard clipboard, I combined Season of Joy stamp set for embellishments with Deck the halls dsp from holiday mini.  I cut the numbers using die for big shot.  I embossed the trees in gold and used crystal effects on poinsetta flower.


Wine topper with charms:  I love making these quick little toppers great way to dress up a bottle of wine for hostess gifts this holiday season.  I even made the wine charms by stamping the snowflake from season of joy stamp in craft ink on shrink plastic, punch a hole with CAD and then melt with heat gun- way too fun!

And finally I needed to do a Christmas card, I decided to not use traditional holiday colors red & green.
I used baja breeze and early expresso for color combo and got to love the new glass glitter!  Of course I had to emboss because it is my favorite!

Thanks for stopping by on my tour.  Before you go leave a comment with your name and email and you will have a chance to win blog candy! 
I am giving away clear mount Stamp set grunge rock!
Only open to US residents (sorry)

Thanks for sharing your great projects. The wine charms are adorable and a great accompaniment to a bottle of wine with the cute "hang tag." Your nontraditional Christmas card is delightful. Count me in on your drawing for the Grunge Rock stamp set.

Thanks for the inspiration to get it out and use it for some great Christmas projects:-D I will definitely be casing your wine charm set.
