Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 25

Welcome to Day 25 of the Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas
and Merry Christmas!


Today's gift comes from the leader of the Artful*Inkers, Donna Henley.  Donna made this beautiful tag set.  There is a neat vintage look to these tags and they will look awesome on any gift.  You may notice a glimmer of gold coming from the folded tag...more chocolate!

I hope you have enjoyed all the awesome gift the Artful*Inkers created during this Countdown to Christmas.  

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!!

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 24

Welcome to Day 24 of the Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.


Today's gift comes from Ruth Hill.  It was difficult to get the 
photo to show all the dimension of this cute little magnet.  
Ruth used a round container, attached a piece of magnet
to the bottom, then used different stamped images and some 
Mica Flakes to create a cute little winter scene.  To top it off, 
there were two Lindor chocolates...notice I said were?  They 
were gobbled up before I typed up this post...hee hee!

Come back tomorrow for one final gift from the
Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 23

Welcome to Day 23 of the Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.


Today's gift comes from Vanessa Manklow.  Oh my goodness,
this little Santa is so cute!  Vanessa made the base of the Santa
using the Petal Cone Die and the beard was made using the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder.  The bottom of the box
folds closed, perfect to tuck a little treat inside.

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 20

Welcome to Day 20 of the Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.


Today's gift comes from Robbyn Sorli.  This is such a 
cute little gift card holder, I just love it!


I haven't quite figured out how Robbyn put this one together.  
Robbyn used the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set and 
Holiday Ornaments Framelits Set to make the cute little
ornament on the front.  Robbyn also used the Snow Burst 
Embossing Folder, which I just love and was saddened when it retired.  It is however currently available on our Clearance Rack.

now on our Clearance Rack.  The cute tag is made using our
MDS2 digital program and clipped on with a Mini Clothespin -
also on our Clearance Rack.

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 18

Welcome to Day 18 of the Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.



Today's gift was created by me!  I used the Candy Wrapper Die to make this treat box.  We had to make 15 of each gift this year.  I did not have enough DSP to make them all the same colour, so I made half using Wild Wasabi and the other half using Riding Hood Red.  

You may have noticed the Candy Wrapper is longer than normal.  I saw a great video by Kay Kalthoff on how to extend the Candy Wrapper so you can fit a full size chocolate bar inside.  I found the punch art for the cute little elf on Pinterest and thought it would 
be the perfect addition to the Candy Wrapper.

Check back tomorrow for more gifts from the
Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 17

Welcome to Day 17 of the Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.


Today's gift comes from Janessa Bott.  Janessa has two beautiful 
little girls and I am sure they were the inspiration for this cute little headband made from our Essentials Designer Fabric.  What is 
really neat is that if you don't have daughters and headbands
aren't your thing, you can use it as a bookmark!

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 16

Welcome to Day 16 of the Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.


Today's gift comes from Dusty Weber.  I was excited when I opened today's gift as I have seen these cute little chocolate bar wrappers on Pinterest and hope to make them someday.  Now that I have seen them in person I am for sure going to make some for gifts but 
probably not until next year.

Check back tomorrow for another gift from the

snowman hot chocolate treat box cute?  Sandra used our 
Fancy Favor Die to make the box and the Candy Cane Christmas 
Fabric - which you can find on the updated Clearance Rack for just 
$1.19 - to make the cute little scarf.  Inside is a package of hot 
chocolate, a peppermint stick and two Hershey's Kisses.

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 12

Welcome to Day 12 of the Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.


Today's gift comes from Diane Hilborn.  
This is the cute bag our gift came in.


Diane used our handy Kraft Gift Boxes 
to make this super cute Countdown to Christmas!


When you lift the lid there is a pocket to display a card with 
how many days until Christmas.  Diane used the very colourful 
Be of Good Cheer DSP and the 25 & Counting Stamp Set to 
make the countdown cards.  I think I may add the cards for the 
first 11 days of the month for next year.

Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas - Day 10

The Artful*Inkers team has organized a Countdown to Christmas 
again this year.  This is the first time I have participated and it has been quite fun so far.  We have 16 participants so we started
today and will have one gift to open each day until Christmas!


Today's gift comes from Dion Pacheco.  These Pentel RSVP pens are popular in crafting circles because you can take them apart and add some decorative detail as Dion has done here.  She added Silver Glass Glitter (item 120995) to the ink tube to create this sparkly pen.

Check back tomorrow for the next gift from the 
Artful*Inkers Countdown to Christmas.
