No Peeking Gift Card

It's a little early for Christmas cards I know but I couldn't resist this reindeer stamp (very cute!!) This is a 3x3 gift card made with Stampin Up stamps from two different sets. The reindeer image is from a retired 1999 set called 'Holiday Helpers' and the 'No peeking 'til Christmas' sentiment is from the retired 1999 set called 'Holiday Sampler'. The background image is from a Stampin Up Jumbo Wheel called 'Busy Blocks'. The inks are Stampin Up Real Red and Close to Cocoa. The ribbon and card stocks I purchased at my local craft store along with the wiggly eyes and puff ball nose.

For My Friend

This project is a great way to recycle. It started with an empty mushroom can, about 3" tall. There is a little measuring involved so the paper fits the can.

The cat, mouse, fish and heart images are from a clear rubber stamp set called 'Pet Shop' made by Gel-a-tin's.

The 'For My Friend' image is from a clear stamp set made by Stampendous.

The paw print background stamp is by Great Impressions.

The grass inside the can is shredded paper. I purchased bags of this stuff at area stores when the Easter season ended. So I got it cheap, or you could make it your self if your patient (which I am definitely not)!

Fill with your friends favorite candy.
