The Willow-Wren and the Bear


The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is to get inspiration from a Fairy Tale or Nursery Rhyme. When I was teaching, I loved to read Fairy Tales by the Grimm Brothers to my students and The Willow-Wren and the Bear was one of my favorites.  

So, I had to use my Bird Builder Punch once again! (If you are new to my website and you look around, you will see that I love birds!) The Early Espresso Card Stock represents the bear, the red button-the fox, the vintage trim – the queen, and the bird-the King of the Birds. I even used a fancy flourish to represent the kingdom. I’ve made cards like this before in different colors, but this one is my favorite because there’s an underlying story behind it! Hope you like it as much as I do. this was such a fun challenge!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Terry

Candle Wraps Make Great Handmade Christmas Gifts!


This is a candle wrap I made for a set of short candle pillars. These are so fast and easy to make and they make great gifts! You can do them for any season or holiday and make them any size you need.

Directions: I took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and cut it so it fit around the candle holder with about 1/2″ extra. I rolled it with the Sparkle and Shine Jumbo Stampin’ Wheel (116542) using Real Red Ink. The Scallop Circles where punched out of Garden Green CS with the2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch(118874) and a dot of glitter was added to each scallop. The ornaments were cut out of Designer Paper (not sure from were because I’ve had it a long time) with the Ornament Punch(119847). I put Sticky Strip along the top of the Whisper White CS and added a strip of dotted ribbon the length of the card stock. Then I placed another strip along the side where the card stock overlaps in the back of the candle holder. The scallop circles were adhered to the front of the candle wrap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the ornaments were adhered to them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I put a piece of Hemp Twine through the clasp of a small, clay Gingerbread Man ornament and tied it around the wrap, on top of the ribbon. It only took about 10 minutes and I was finished! I hope you give these candle wraps a try.

All the items in bold are Stampin’ Up. Go to my online store to order everything you need to make these candle wraps by clicking on the “Order Stampin’ Up! Online” Button in the right-hand column.

I am entering these in The Paper Players Red and Green Challenge #68 this week.
