Do you Believe?

This week Pals Paper Arts features a color challenge.

Pals Paper Arts #278

This color combination made me think of elves and santa’s suit. So I decided to think about what Santa will leave under our Christmas Tree.

StampinMojo, Your Presents, PPA278, Lighthearted Leaves, Holly Jolly Greetings

I used the fun and very versatile Your Presents stamp set. The plaid present was created by stamping the striped stamp in one direction and then rotating it 90°. Then I simply cut out a square using my Stampin’ Trimmer.

Like all presents they become beautiful by adding the bows. The first present I used the 1/8″ Real Red Striped Ribbon. The next present uses the bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and the final bow is from the Balloon Framelits.

The two bead embellishments came from this month’s Paper Pumpkin you can see that post here.

One of my favorite holiday books is Polar Express. So it seemed perfect to add the Believe sentiment from the Lighthearted Leaves  stamp set to go with my presents. Can you still hear the bell?

The little dangling stars were stamped from the Holly Jolly Greetings set and then I punched out stars from the Stars Border Punch and adhered with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

The inside greeting is from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set.

Tomorrow evening we have our first holiday party it all seems surreal. How did it all come upon us so fast?

Thanks for stopping by. Remember Stampin’ Up! products make great gifts for the crafter(s) in your life.
