ROYAL BLOG TOUR - Hear Ye Hear Ye! Christmas Time is Coming!

 
Welcome most honored guest to my stampin' castle on the Royal Blog Tour!
I am pleased that you have stopped by for a visit on your journey today. 

Hope you enjoy your royal stay at my stop on the Royal Blog Fall Tour.  I am sure you have seen some wonderful castles and they have treated you royally.
For my featured stamp set, I used Delightful Decorations.  I love that Stampin' Up! has a coordinating punch to quickly cut out the images.  Also the 3/4" circle punch, cuts the small images neatly.  And I am giving away one of Delightful Decorations stamp set of royal blog candy to one honored participant!  Details about entering are at the end of this post.

I decided to make 3D ornaments and also Christmas Tags in a box.  I live in two states because of my husband's job and wanted a tree to have during the days we are in our rental home.  What is better than making the ornaments myself and using Stampin' Up!'s wonderful products?  I love Christmas and decorating with Stampin' Up! paper crafts.


My first project is a Christmas Tag box. 




I made the center of the  box lid with a thick window sheet stamped with Opaque White Stazon ink.  The outside of the box lid is also stamped with Opaque White Stazon ink. Card stock used is Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper, and thick window sheets. Inside are 3" x 3" gift enclosure tags, folded punched ornament tags, and single sided ornament tags to tie on or include inside gifts.  The ribbon is the gorgeous seam binding in the Holiday Mini catalog.  I will have a tutorial for the Christmas rose on top of the box after the tour.  I used some of these to decorate my tree.  Subscribe to my blog or check back after the tour is over for more information.


 Inside view of the box.




Close up of some of the 3 x 3 note cards.  I will have more photos in the coming days.




Next I will show you some of the ornaments I made.  I will have more photos and instructions in the coming days of some of the other ones I made.  

This ornament has basic rhinestones on it.  We all need a little bling in our life!



The following ornament was coated with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  It is so shiny like a crown!



Threaded a pearl bead on top of this ornament.  Jewels are a standard part of a princess's wardrobe!



 Now on to the blog candy.  You must email me your name and email address to tarheelstamperblogcandy@gmail.com to enter to win the stamp set Delightful Decorations.  I will use a random number generator to pick the winner.  Emails will be numbered in the order they are received.

I will contact the winner at the email address listed in their email to me.  You will not be entered to win the blog candy unless you email me at tarheelstamperblogcandy@gmail.com  You can go the Royal Blog Tour homepage after the Blog Tour is over to see the names of all the winners. 

Also I appreciate comments and the time you take to leave them!  I know that taking a blog tour is an undertaking and appreciate your comments! 

And now I must bid you, "Fare thee well"!  I know you will enjoy the rest of the wonderfully talented queen and princess stampers residing in the gorgeous castles on this tour!  Come back and see me sometime.  I love guests!
