For my project today I created a Snowman Ensemble which includes a candy jar, Christmas ornament and a Christmas card. The holidays will be here before we know it and then we will all be needing little gifts for teachers, co-workers and friends and this snowman gift set would be perfect!

For all three projects I used the same papers and inks.

Candy Jar~
For the candy jar I used a sentiment and image from two of the NEW JustRite Christmas stamp sets, Old Fashion Christmas Set and Something Sweet Set. The Old Fashion Christmas Set has four borders and centers and works with the 3-1/4 '' Wood Stamper. The Something Sweet Set comes with 6 borders and centers and works with the 2-3/8 '' Wood Stamper. To create the candy jar I started by making a belly band with the designer paper to go around the jar and I inked the edges. Then I stamped the sentiment Sweet Treats from the Something Sweet Set with brown ink and on the candy piece I did paper piecing. The border was stamped with blue ink and then I inked the edges on both of the circle diecuts. To create the circle diecuts I used the Wizard, Classic Circles Lg. S4-114, Classic Circles Sm. S4-116 from Spellbinders. For the lid of I stamped a snowman image from the Old Fashion Christmas Set with brown ink and colored with Copic markers. Then I added a scalloped circle with designer paper from the mat. The diecuts were made using the Wizard, Classic Circles Lg. S4-114, Petite Scalloped Circles Lg. S4-115 from Spellbinders. I also added some liquid applique' and glitter.
Christmas Ornament~
For the snowflake center I used a snowflake image from the NEW A Merry Little Christmas Set. This set contains 10 borders and centers and works with the 1-5/8 '' Wood Stamper.To create the Christmas ornament I cut out two pieces of light weight chipboard and two pieces of designer paper using the Wizard and Labels Five S4-229 and sandwiched then all together to make the base for the ornament. Then I made the snowflake diecuts using Create A Flake 2 S4-223. For the center of the snowflake I used the snowflake image from the center of A Merry Little Christmas set with blue ink. All of the edges were inked and I copper wire to create the hanger and added some rhinestones and glitter.
Christmas Card~
Both the image and the sentiment are from the NEW Old Fashion Christmas Set. As mentioned above the Old Fashion Christmas Set comes with four centers & borders and works with the 3-1/4 '' Wood Stamper.To create the Christmas card I stamped the snowman image with brown ink and colored with Copic markers. For the sentiment I used blue ink and then I inked the edges of both the circle diecuts. I added several snowflakes to the card using the Create A Flake 2 S4-223 from Spellbinders. To add some dimension to the card I used several popdots and I also added some glitter and rhinestones.
