Some Quick Gifts and Cards

The challenge for this week over at the Tando Blog was to make quick and easy gifts or cards.  So I started with the little smartie pockets - I used a glassine envelope and some stamped images I stamped using my friends stamp last year!  The instructions involve what colours of smarties to eat depending on how you are feeling.  I decorated the envelopes with washi tape by MME and lace and doilies as well as a tando reindeer and snowflake

Next the cards

 I used up lots of offcuts with some washi tape and Kaisercraft Christmas stamps, I also inked up a Tando stocking with red and a matt gold ink, which I then added glossy accents too and spritzed with some glimmer mist whilst it was still wet - hence the dabbled effect on the red boot.

This card was so striaghtforward - I used the snowflake mask as a stencil and then used a corresponding chipboard piece inked white (and then around the edges with brown distress ink) placed it in the middle and added glitter, and stamped Merry Christmas in the corner.

There will be ideas on the blog all week so here is the link
