12 Days of Christmas Creations ~ Gifts of Warm Cocoa with a Double Trouble Challenge

As we continue with 12 Days of Christmas Creations, I wanted to inspire you to give some sweet treats of Warm Cocoa (with sprinkles) to your neighbors, co-workers, friends,  and family this holiday season.  This adorable little box can be filled with your favorite cocoa (or coffee), some marshmallows (or coffee beans), and a chocolate spoon (with sprinkles).

I found inspiration from a few other similar projects on Pinterest, and I decided to give it my own twist. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to enter it into the weekly Double Trouble Challenge where we were asked to make a sweet treat for the Fall/Winter holidays using a mood board to motivate our mojo and it needed to include sprinkles on top.

The box was created with my Explore Air 2 in Cricut Design Space™ using a Rectangle shape, Score Lines, and Cut Lines. Later this week, I will be showing a short video in my VIP Facebook Group demonstrating how to create your own box.

 

Once the box was assembled, I decorated it with ‘Tis the Season paper, a cute Sentiment stamped in Charcoal on cardstock circles cut from our Thin Cuts metal dies, and a stamped Poinsettia. To create the layered Poinsettia, I stamped the two images (one with New England Ivy, one with Candy Apple), cut them out and layered them using a Foam Dot. It’s hard to see, but there is a little sparkle on that Poinsettia.

 

The little bag of marshmallows was even more fun to create.  I used our Fancy Tags Thin Cuts metal dies to cut out the topper, decorated it with a stamped snowflake image and Thin Cut circles, and added a little New England Ivy Ribbon that I divided into individual threads.

This little gift of Warm Cocoa (or coffee) is simple to create and would make a great gift to give. (Especially when you need a few last minute gifts).  Each of the supplies I used can be purchased from my website. I am blessed by each one of you who take the time to shop my website and support my home business.

Make sure to come back tomorrow for my next 12 Days of Christmas Creation. I can’t wait to see what you create!

Hello Pumpkin Thank You Card

Aren’t you just loving the Hello Pumpkin products Close to My Heart created this season? Who knew that the bright Tangerine, Lagoon, Mint, and Black would be such a FUN color combination. This week, I am working on Thank You cards, and I decided to create a simple “Thank You Pumpkin” card for the Three Amigos Autumn/Halloween challenge.

HelloPumpkinThankYou-misscarriescreationsThis card was a very simple one to make using the Hello Pumpkin Papers and Cardmaking stamp set. If you wish to recreate this card, you can find the full list of products I used at the very bottom of this post.

 

The card started out with a simple piece of Lagoon cardstock that I splattered with Black Shimmer. After using a Small Circle Thin Cut to cut out the circles from the Black B&T paper, I traced the circles onto White Daisy cardstock, then stamped each of the Pumpkin images using Nectarine and Black Inks.

Once assembled, I wrapped Silver Embellishing Thread around the paper, and attached it to the Lagoon background. The little tag was cut out using a Fancy Tag Thin Cut, the Thank You sentiment was stamped, then attached to the card using Foam Tape. Add a few Silver Glitter Gems, and the card is complete.

How easy was that?! A simple fall card that anyone would love. Thank you again for visiting my blog and supporting my home business. I truly enjoy sharing these paper crafting projects with you each week and I can’t wait to see what you create!

Spinning Coffee Treats Card

Sometimes the coffee lover in me needs to create an amusing little card like this one, and, while I was designing it, I decided that it should have a spinning cup of coffee.  Life is fun, crazy, and sometimes requires a lot of coffee.☕  I truly enjoyed making this  delightful little card using our Just Treat stamp set along with some of our Hello Pumpkin products. You can see a list of all the products I used to create this card at the very bottom of this post.

SpinningCoffeeTreatCard-misscarriescreations

If you have never made a spinning card, it is actually much simpler that you think. I searched on Pinterest, and found that two Pennies with a few Foam Dots worked perfectly behind the cup of coffee. Since, my blog page doesn’t allow me to upload videos, I will be showing how this card works on my Instagram and Facebook page later today, so that you can see how sweet that little spinning cup looks.

Don’t forget that the Just Treats stamp set is only available through September 30th. You can purchase it for only $5.00 with any $50 purchase. If you don’t have $50.00 worth of crafty goodness to purchase, you can buy it for $18.95 on my website and use it to create this card and many others for the upcoming holidays.  I can’t wait to see what you create!
