Santa Paws - Eclectic Ellapu challenge #8

Good Morning everybody,

Here we are with challenge 8 over at Eclectic Ellapu and this weeks theme is "Santa Paws and Snowflakes" chosen by the lovely Jacki and it's the turn of the Purple Team :). We want to see your Christmas cuties of the four legged variety. I have chosen my "Tatty Ted" stamp to make this gift set consisting of : card, bottle cuff and vanilla scented candle.


This was made using scraps of design papers and scraps of card. The sentiment is a Penny Black Stamp which I just adore. The snowflakes were made with a Marianne Creatables die and the embossing made with my swiss dots and snowflake embossing folders. The buttons from my stash.

Bottle Cuff:

Made with an off cut of card, used a circle nestie to create the aperture. Decorated with matching papers to the card and stickles for a little Christmas sparkle.


Snowflake buttons are from my stash and the gorgeous ribbon was given to me in a swap. The teddy was stickled before heat sealing him into the candle.

Well thanks for visiting my blog, why not pop over to Eclectic Ellapu and check out my fantastic teamies creations, and take on the challenge yourself  :) .


  1. I have to tell you Andria that you have taught me something new! I have never thought to make a bottle cuff, and I am definitely going to try that out sometime soon. Especially because I am a wine connoisseur and most of my friends are too, LOL.
