Holiday Sparkle Day 5

Hello peeps!! It's already day five and we are now winding down sneak peeks for the full reveal.  I don't know what I like better...the peeks or the full reveal.  Or should I say...when the stamp set is finally in my hands so I can create with it too.  Thank you so much for joining me for this release.  I enjoy your company and your comments too.

Today's first project is a gift card holder created with felt, stitching and square nestabilities!!  Yes, it is that simple. Begin by creating 2 die cut squares, stitch your image (which I have coloured and also stamped a sentiment) to the top piece of the felt.  Then stitch the two pieces together.  Then thread buttons onto felt.  As a final step, apply rhinestones.


  1. Create felt dies.
  2. Stamp image, colour and stamp sentiment.
  3. Stitch the image to the felt.  Then stitch the two felt squares together.
  4. Stitch buttons to felt.
  5. Colour and apply rhinestone.

My second project is an out of the box card.  I used the focal image and turned it into a fall card.  I am pleased with how it turned out


  1. Create card base and cut layers
  2. Stamp images and sentiment.
  3. Apply rhinestones.
  4. Adhere all layers
