Today I am sharing a couple of the very cute little Gold Mini Pizza Boxes  which I have decorated with the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP.

I have basically cased these projects from the Holiday Catalogue.  You will see that there are a couple of samples that Stampin'Up! have shown using this suite on pages 12 and 13.  It is just so easy to get some great ideas from the catalogues and create your own version of these littles boxes.

All you need to start is a packet of Gold Mini Pizza Boxes (8 included in the packet) and your imagination.

I wanted to use all the products I had from this Suite, although I did substitute the baubles from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set instead of the Christmas Trees.

On the smaller box the baubles were stamped in Gold on Very Vanilla cardstock, as well as the Merry Christmas sentiment.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the smaller box which I had coloured with the Shaded Spruce Blend Marker and completed with the 1/2" Classic Weave Ribbon from the Brightly Gleaming Suite and a Gold Jingle Bell.

On the larger box (2 boxes wrapped together as shown in one of Stampin'Up! samples I simply punched an ornament from the DSP and added some vellum sprigs and a sentiment stamped in Gold.  Finished off with the Shaded Spruce/Gold Ribbon and 3 Jingle Bells - 1 of each colour.

The products I used for these two projects are here:

Sharing today the card I have created for my Just For Fun October Challenge using this image for inspiration.

For the bird image I have fussy cut a bird from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I thought this little bird fitted perfectly with the colours.

The base card is Flirty Flamingo.  The next layer is Coastal Cabana which I have embossed with the Brick and Mortar Embossing Folder and then torn the edges.  The image has been mounted on Pretty Peacock die cut with the Stitched Labels Dies.

I have completed the card with some Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Ribbon and Faceted Dots.

The Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP is so pretty and one of my absolute favourites from the Holiday Catalogue.

The project I am sharing today is a lovely card using the very pretty photographic imagery side of this paper together with the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set and co-ordinating punch.

The snowflakes and the label that the sentiment has been mounted on have been die cut with the Frosted Frames Dies from Silver Foil.   To create a smaller label I ran the die through twice to create the size I wanted.

The sentiment is from the Just For Hosts stamp set Greatest Part of Christmas.  This set has some lovely Christmas sentiments.

Today's cards have been created with the very cute Merry Moose Bundle.

How cute is he?  Merry Moose also has a co-ordinating punch making it easy to cut him out perfectly.

I fell in love with the cute little Santa hats and scarves, so of course my first card had to have them being worn by the moose.

My second card used a few products from the Wrapped in Plaid Suite as well as some of the new Ice Stampin' Glitter from the Feels Like Frost Suite.

My third card was cased from another demonstrator (Jill Van Dieren).  I had come across her very cute card somewhere on the internet and just loved how simple but effective her card is.  Thank you for the inspiration.

If you would like your own Merry Moose to play with, you can click on the products below to order directly from my online website shop.

What is this, not a Christmas card?

No, in fact I had a piece of brick embossed cardstock left over from the card I created for the latest Blogging Friends Blog Hop which I wanted to use and create a pretty card with this time.

A pretty easy card using the Bloom & Grow Bundle with the Gold Delicata Metallic Ink.

I actually stamped and die cut two of the same flower images and then cut the middle flower piece out of one.  This middle part I added to the other piece with dimensionals and also some of the foliage which I had cut off, making it a fuller flower piece.  I also added in a couple of extra stamped and die cut pieces of foliage.

Finished off with a bow and a Happy Birthday sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

You probably can't see too well from the photo, but I also swiped the Gold Ink around the edges of the brick embossed piece and over some of the bricks giving some subtle highlights.

On the base card (Crumb Cake) I also stamped randomly in Gold Ink one of the background stamps from the Tasteful Textures stamp set.

Here is a list of the products used:
