Warm Winter Wishes {Clear and Simple Stamps}

Good morning!  Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!  I am busy with holiday preparations here at my house, and that including dressing up some Christmas gifts!  Often times, I feel like I need "just one more little thing" to complete a gift.  I like to choose practical gifts when I can, or things I would enjoy receiving.  I am sort of addicted to fun socks.  Polka dotted, striped, fuzzy... so when I find cute socks for a steal, I pick them up and save them for gifts.  

I love making inexpensive little things look like so much more... it's all in cute packaging.  Clear and Simple Stamps just released Collection 9, which is FULL of AWESOME gift packaging stamps and dies!

For this little gift, I used the Flurry die, along with the new Flurry Days stamps and a sentiment from Cover Prints 1.  The Flurry die is quite large (over 5") and it was a little big for the tag design that I had in mind.  So I snipped off the longest "legs" of the snowflake to make it slightly smaller.  The smaller version layers beautifully with the larger snowflakes in the Flurries Combo and Furry Days set.

I die cut and stamped a little Rag Doll Spa girl to add to the tag.  I think she looks so cozy in her bathrobe :)

I hope the recipient enjoys her new fuzzy socks ;)

Lots more fun with Collection 9 is coming soon!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Lawnscaping Challenge #70 - Polka Dots

Hey there!!  Happy Monday!  It's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!  This week's challenge has to do with one of my favorite things - Polka Dots!!  

Challenge #70 is sponsored by the super fabulous Lawn Fawn!

For my card today, I used Critters in the Snow and Cozy Christmas.  The polka dot paper is from the 6x6 Peace Joy Love paper pad.  I used glossy accents to make shiny lightbulbs, and although it's sort of hard to see, the igloo is bling-ed out with a Wink of Stella glitter pen. :)

Be sure to check out the Lawnscaping blog for more challenge details and polka dotted inspiration! :)
