More Chocolate and Marshmallows

Hi friends! It's my day to share a little inspiration over on the Jaded Blossom blog and I've got a fun little gift giving project. I recently watched a live on YouTube making these altered coffee sleeve treat pouches. I remembered making these back in the day, so decided it was time to make some more.

My first stop was Starbucks, because any excuse to go get coffee, right? I kept my coffee sleeve and gathered a few more from my family, then spent an evening watching football tracing the coffee sleeves onto scraps of patterned paper from Christmas past and cutting them out. I added a little lace to the bottom with some clear tacky glue, and since the glue seeped through the lace a bit, I was able to press in some champagne glass glitter for a touch of gold.

I then pulled out the Poinsettia two step stamping set and picked out some reds and greens to stamp them out. I layered four of the leaves  behind the large poinsettia on pop dots, then accented with some yellow stickles.  The sentiment is from the Hot Cocoa & Marshmallows set and stamped onto a label from the  Label Shape Dies 1 set. I glued this to the top of my coffee sleeve, then got to work filling my cellophane bag.

I stuffed this one with a couple packets of Ghirardelli hot cocoa, a large peppermint chocolate marshmallow, a couple chocolate spoons, and my favorite little white chocolate peppermint Lindor truffles. I tied it up with a bit of ribbon, and then tucked it into the coffee sleeve. Super easy and the perfect little gift for a friend or neighbor

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic day

Jaded Blossom Black Friday Release Day 2

Hey Everyone! It's time for the Black Friday Sale & Release over at Jaded Blossom!

Jaded Blossom is releasing a few new items!

I made two projects with the new items to share today.

First up, since I shared a boy gnome yesterday, I decided to share a girl gnome today. I dressed her up in elf finery from the previously released Gnome Dies: Christmas Add Ons 2, then added some of the hair tendrils from the new Gnome Dies: Hair Add Ons. There's actually a piece to go behind her head for the full head of hair, but since the elf costume ends up being thinner than the base girl gnome, I thought it worked a little better to just layer the tendrils. Otherwise it was big 80's hair for her.  LOL

She's holding a light from the Christmas Add Ons 3 set, and I chose some Christmas light patterned paper, using the Stylized Rectangles for the shape. The sentiment is from Candy Cane Lane and I used the North Pole Sign and accented it with a couple of pieces from the nutcracker costume in Gnome Dies: Christmas Add Ons 3. My Copic color palette was:
Greens: YG05, YG61. YG63, YG67
Reds: R27, $37, R59
Skin: E01, E51, E000
Beard: W1, W3, W5
Boots: E31, E33, E35
Hair: yellow cardstock with Y00, Y21, and Y23

For my second project, I decided to use the new Build a Booth: Gingerbread House Add On to decorate the previously released Gable Box. I've been wanting the Gable Box forever, and couldn't wait to use it. The box is pretty straight forward, I used red, green, white, and kraft cardstock to cut my pieces. I added a layer to the front that was embossed with a wood grain and inked with kraft ink, then accented with the wreath die from the Gnome Dies: Christmas Add Ons 3 set.  One of the rectangles in the Card Mat Dies is the perfect size to cover the sides of the box, so I chose a scalloped patterned paper for the sides of the house, then accented with a window. I finished off with a gold bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful holiday. Don't forget we also have our Black Friday sale going on!
