A Coke and a Smile

Diet Coke, punches, Christmas, Cards, Holiday, Stampin' Up, Big Shot, Snow Festival designer tagsI love using soda cans for stamping projects!  My friend Janet gave me a bag of Diet Coke cans several Christmases ago for a project we were doing, and I still had a few left.  So I punched an ornament and a scallop trim border with my Stampin’ Up! punches.  It needed a little more zing, so I added a row of rhinestones.

I embossed a Certainly Celery panel with my Big Shot and the Lacy Brocade folder, then added one of the Snow Festival designer printed tags to the front – then attached the ornament to the tag.

The small snowflake (bottom right corner) was already printed on the can, so I just punched it with the Boho Blossoms punch.

Before I layered the front to the card, I stamped the Bold Snowflake single stamp (see it here) along the edges of the Cherry Cobbler card in Cherry Cobbler ink.

To finish it off, I added a “Merry Christmas” banner.  Easy!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy,and have a wonderful day!

  1. How did you take the can apart to work with it?

      I take a pair of old Stampin’ Up! craft & rubber scissors (but you can use any), and cut the top off, then cut down the side, then cut the bottom off. You can use a knife to get started, too. I just kind of stab it with the scissors to make the first cut. This gives you a nice area to work with. The edges are very sharp after cutting with scissors, but the punched or die cut edges aren’t. I used one of the Flower Frames framelits for the little snowflake, and it worked great – but it was a little big, I thought, so I did it over with a punch. Benefit – it sharpens the punches and scissors! (I still wouldn’t use my nice craft scissors or paper snips to cut the metal, though!)
