Mr. Snowman Gift Box

Happy Day to Everyone!!! It is my turn to post over at Wild Orchid Crafts Blog so I would love for you to drop over and become a follower. Each day we have a posting to show you many different ways that we have used the wonderful products from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop. Thank you!!


Today I have made a gift box for a special someone who loves snowmen...and of course will love the gift card I will place inside...lol

The double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Fancy Pants Saint Nick collection. For the snowman I used three different sizes of styrofoam balls that I cut in half and covered them with Prisma Glitter. The scarf is lengths of DMC floss and the arms are stems from WOC roses. I have used WOC Self-Adhesive Pearls and Rhinestones for the buttons, eyes, and nose. I made the stovepipe hat with chipboard. The fence is from the miniature section and I have added Snow-Tex and Diamond Dust to the fence as well as the ground. The trees are decorated with more rhinestones and chipboard stars. I have used Carnations, Aster Daisies, Gypsophilia, and tiny silk bows for the floral treatment and a Decorative Metal Corner


This view will hopefully show the dimension of the snowman and the fence. I added a stripe grosgrain ribbon around the box and a couple of satin bows.


I have also decorated the inside of the box with a chipboard sentiment and a small kraft pocket with another satin ribbon for a gift card.

Thank you so very much for dropping by today and I hope to see you again real soon!! Until the next time, enjoy your moments and minimize the stress of the holiday season!! Big Hugs!!


WINNER at Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF!!

Thank you all so much for participating in this week's Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF. I have done alot of soul-searching and have decided that I will let you know that this is the last of the prizes until after the holidays...and then after the beginning of the New Year, I will be deciding if I want to continue the weekly opportunities for you all. Surely you all recognize that this has been quite an expensive endeavor for me over the past year and since I also pay all shipping to places all over the world, it is constantly getting much more expensive as shipping costs continue to rise. So we shall see!! If you have suggestions or recommendations, I would love to hear them!!

The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Home for Christmas paper pad by Papermania. The sweet image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a bit of Prisma Glitter. For the left side treatment I used some lovely White Net Lace topped with narrow satin ribbon and a double flat bow of white organza. The two sparkle snowflakes are from my stash. The flower treatments are Tuscany Rose, Open Roses, Holly Leaves, and Bead Berry Sprays. I finished the front with Self-Adhesive Pearls on the corners.


For the inside of my card I used a couple of diecuts made with the Tall Timber Die. The trees were covered with Prisma Glitter before decorating with Self-Adhesive Rhinestones and tiny red satin bows.

And finally....

Jacque Beddingfield (that's ME!!!)


For today’s card I inked up the lovely little AppleCyder Jubilee from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection Illustrated by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.




I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the Merry & Bright paper pad by Carta Bella. The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding some Prisma Glitter for the steam and Glossy Accents to the cup, plate, and holly berries. I used narrow red satin ribbon for the lefthand treatment topped with a quadruple bow, holly leaves and small red rose. I pretended that this cutie was having hot tea so I made a little dangle teapot using a matching green bead. I finished the card by adding some diecut corners and self-adhesive pearls.

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites. Be sure to check out the Whimsy Christmas Shop for all of those special holiday products!!

For today’s card, I inked up the darling little IRIS designed by the quintessentially talented Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps.

The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to the wings and accents. The metal corners, pearls, and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. For some crazy reason, this card would not photograph exactly right.....may have something to do with the fact that I know nothing about photography. IRL the colors do match...hahahhah

Feel Better Wishes for the INCOMPARABLE Bev Rochester!!!!!

 
 
Hi everyone and welcome to our

Circle of Friends Blog Hop

especially for our dear DT member and friend

Bev Rochester
 
Unfortunately, Bev has had to take a little break from crafting over the past few months due to ill health. We are missing her here at Whimsy and want to let her know that we are thinking about her and wishing her a speedy recovery. Even though the Whimsy family is scattered all around the world, we have come together as a circle of friends to show Bev our love and support by each making her a card or project.

Although this hop is for Bev, we do hope you will hop along with us to support our wonderful teammate and friend. If you arrived here from Simonne's Blog, then you are in the right place! If you’ve happened upon this post by chance and would like to hop with us, hop on over to the Whimsy Stamps blog to begin the hop.

For my creation, I decided to ink up the darling little Hazel designed by the incomparable Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps! I have also used flowers and accoutrements from Wild Orchid Crafts and other things from my stash.



I made a gift bag to hold some of the things which I know are some of Bev's favorites....MARSHMALLOW!!! And Bev, they are on their way to you as you have a peek at my creation!
 
I can share with all of you that Bev Rochester is sincerely one of the beautiful people in the world and is so special to me. From the moment I made my very first card, I wrote to Bev and she always answered my emails and was always willing to help me and give me suggestions and advice. If I had to name one person who has given me the most inspiration in this hobby, I would never hesitate to name Bev Rochester. She has become one of my dearest of friends and I had the pleasure of spending time with her at last year's CHA--an experience I will never forget!!! She is beautiful on the inside and outside and her cardmaking expertise and artistic talents are unsurpassed!!!

 
 
Here is the back of the gift bag...and here is what should be arriving at the Rochester household very soon!!!!!
 
 
 
 
Mr. Tony...I didn't forget you and know that you will soon be going in for knee replacements so you will have your share of fall M&Ms...big smile!!!!
 
Bev, please feel better real soon and know that there are many like me who love and cherish you and can't wait to see you wandering around Cyberia again real soon!!! Big special hugs for you and Tony!!! Love you both!!!
 
 
So now it's time for you to hop over to ... Kathy's Blog. Finally, here is a full hop list in hopping order:


Thanks so much for stopping by today and you are welcome to leave comments along the way for Bev!!!! You can be assured that she will read them!!! Hugs to all!!!

This Time I Need YOUR help!!!! PLEASE!! PLEASE!! PLEASE!!

 
To my friends all over the world, this time I am asking for your help in something that is very near and dear to my heart. You all have heard from me that I am co-chairing a Party in Pink Zumbathon this weekend and I am so thankful for all of the support we have received for this event....I promise that pictures will follow after the weekend!!!! In addition I have taken it on as a personal goal to reach as many people as I can all over the world to raise money for the CAUSE and the CURE of Breast Cancer.
 
Many of you followed me through the horrors of breast cancer and I could not have done it alone. You gave me so much support as I went through 3 surgeries and then bouts of chemotherapy and radiation. I made a promise at that time that I would do all within my power to make life a bit easier for my PINK sisters who would have to experience the horrifying words "you have breast cancer". I have personally made contact with each of the people in our crafting world when they found out that they had the disease and shared a bit of PINK Sweet Stuff with them to brighten their day!
 
This disease effects more than 1 in every 8 women all over the world and I am not discounting the number of men that it effects as well. I can only hope and pray that you all never have to hear those words....I KNOW that together we can make a real difference!!
 
You all know that I have sent packages all over the world through my weekly Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF, as well as other candies, and cards and crafting supplies when you have requested them. I have never asked for repayment in return in any way. But this time I am asking for your help... that you search within yourselves and see if you can't help in this call for donations for the CAUSE and the CURE of Breast Cancer. You can be assured that 100% of all monies I receive will go to the breast cancer research initiative and to the outreach program for breast cancer. You can check out the events and programs on my facebook page if you wish.
 
Please send any donations by Paypal to Jacque3125@aol.com and send as a gift with a notation that it is for breast cancer so that monies will not be deducted by Paypal....or if you wish you can send to me to Jacque Beddingfield, 115 Belmont Drive, Hendersonville, NC 28739 USA with the check made out to Party in Pink.
 
Thank you sincerely for any help you may be able to give and I would appreciate your mentioning this world-wide call on your personal blogs. Please join with me as we all become PINK WARRIORS!!!!

I would appreciate your being one of my followers and would hope that you would share the Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF on your sidebar, although those are not requirements for entering the draw. If you don't have a blog, just skip over the URL request and leave your information. Remember that the closing each week is on Tuesday at midnight my time (ET). Be sure to check back on Wednesdays to see if you are the lucky winner...I will not be contacting the winner because many of you do not have email addresses listed.
 
Good Luck to Everyone!!!!
