25 & Counting Christmas Countdown

I had so much fun putting this project together. In fact, since I have 2 small children at home - I made 2. It is made entirely from Stampin' Up! supplies! I saw the idea a year ago on this blog and followed her instructions for putting the box base together.
It's not very big. The 25 & Counting (it is 50% OFF right now!) stamp set was used and each stamp was punched with the 1" square (30% OFF) punch. One chocolate kiss will fit inside.
Stamp sets: 25 & Counting, Greetings of the Season
Ink: Real Red, Gumball Green, Early Espresso, Marina Mist
Card Stock: Real Red, Gumball Green 
DSP: Candlelight Christmas
Accessories: Big Shot, Snow Flurry Bigz Die, Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies, Petal Card Punch, Silver Brads, Large Basic Pearls, Simply Scored, Paper-Piercing Tool, Eyelet Border Punch (oops, it's retired)
This version is done in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green with Be of Good Cheer DSP (20% OFF) and the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set

There is a huge list of additional items on sale - select Designer Series Papers at 20% off, Accessories at 25-40% off, and a huge selection of stamp sets and MDS 2+ for 50% off!!
Of course, the best value is the Demonstrator Starter Kit. When you join me as a demonstrator during the online Extravaganza you can include SALE items in your starter kit. You still get to choose any products totaling up to $125 and you pay only $99 with FREE SHIPPING! and the Ink-redible promotion is still going on so you will also receive 1 FREE color family of ink pads! (that's 10 ink pads - a $49.95 value) Stampin' Up! is so flexible - you can join just for the extraordinary value of the starter kit, to build a little side business and stamp with friends, or go all out - earn an income, demonstrator rewards of free products and the ultimate - a fabulous trip!

Silver Glimmer Ornament Punch Card

I have been wanting to try this technique since my Nov/Dec Stampin' Success magazine arrived. Stampin' Success is an exclusive magazine for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators but you can sneak a peek here.
Can you see it? I punched 2 ornament punches from the Silver Glimmer paper, cut one in half, used the Scallop Border Trim punch along the bottom and used a sponge dauber to color it with Cherry Cobbler. I heat set it with the heat tool, layered it on the silver ornament with mini glue dots, and embellished with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stamp Set: Border Banter
Card Stock: Whisper White & Cherry Cobbler, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Frame Embossing Folder, Bitty Banners Framelits, Ornament Punch, Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals
