Fabulous Designs

Well, the title is misleading. I named it that because my card and label I made go with the Gina K. Designs Fabulous Frames, Fabulous Holiday Labels  and the Fabulous Labels Dies that are all illustrated and designed by Melanie Muenchinger. She is the one who is fabulous and I am trying to at least make a great effort on reaching that status. So here is my card I made.


I also used some of the Gina K. Designs pattern paper from the Blizzard Paper Pack, Gina K. Designs White and Christmas Pine card stock, and Gina K. Designs Red Hot and Christmas Pine ink. I colored the white ribbon with the Christmas Pine ink to make it match, but be sure it is fully dry before adding it to the card. I got some smudges on mine but with the Tombo Sand Eraser I got rid of most of it.

And this is the label I made which will be used for future use on baked goods or some Christmas goodies for friends. I used some Copics to color around the inner framed design which was stamped from the Fabulous Frames set on pattern paper and then fussy cut and placed on the label die. And the end pieces had to be pieced in as I fussy cut them too. I wanted that Copic colored frame to show up. The cookies were used as a photo prop and actually will be eaten by us.


One can add a ribbon to the label as well and use it for tags on Christmas packages. I chose to just leave it as a label and will fasten it to a plate of goodies when the time comes.

Well, I think I might have to have one of those cookies now. Yummy! Most are in the freezer so they are not so tempting to me.

Thanks for the visit and I hope your Sunday evening is a great one.

God bless,
Verna

So pretty, you have really done those stamps and dies justice here. I love the traditional Christmas colors, and that cookie label is almost as amazing as the cookies inside. Great inspiration here!!!

I wish that I had a few of these Christmas card done like this. You are a fabulous card maker and designer in my book. The tag for the cookies looks as good as the cookies, and here I thought you were baking for everyone one and giving them away. Lol I'm sure they are delicious.

Such a pretty card, but the cookies win - I want one, right now ;)

I am bummed that I did not order this stamp. I thought I could live without it. Now I'm about on my last breath. It was still in stock yesterday, so I guess I'm ordering again from this release. Your cookie plate is calling my name BTW.

Verna - Sorry I'm back again. I'm sitting here laughing to myself about your freezer comment. When I was a kid in northern Illinois - 1 of 6 kids, my mom (a fabulous baker) would put the cookies in the freezer so she would have some for when company came. We would go out there and sneak them one at a time and eat them frozen. When the company came, she would go out to get cookies and well - the rest of the story is not appropriate for tender ears. :)
