Happy New Year!!

Relaxing in the Oasis


A Winter Wonderland Florida-Style!

We've had lots of beautiful, warm, spring-like weather (until yesterday!) here in Central Florida this winter! Here are a couple of gift/giftwrap ideas that I made for yesterday. The "Sea Glass" candy is made by my friend, Kelly, whose business features her homemade delicious old-fashioned candies and to-die-for gourmet popcorns (Think Butter Rum, Strawberry Cheesecake, Marshmallow...mmmmmm!). You can find Kelly at Kellyskandies@yahoo.com and on FaceBook!
I made party favors using the "Shellebrate" stamp set. Everything is heat-embossed with SU Gold and colored in using Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen. I used a sponge around the scallop edges to color in my Florida snow (sand) lol. It is SOOOOO relaxing to color in the shells and watch the cloisonne effect appear as you color and blend.

The gift tags were made for son Tommy's company gifts for the ladies. I went retro with "Beautiful Beach" stamps and Classy Copper Embossing Powder and metallic paper. Lots of sand--no snow.
