Christmas Gleaming Bundle

Today I wanted to share one of my favorite bundles in the Holiday Catalog, the Christmas Gleaming Bundle! It comes with TWO punches and a fabulous coordinating stamp set. Stampin Up didn’t stop with the bundle, they added even more to this bundle and made it a whole SUITE! And you know what that means, we got coordinating ribbon, embellishments and DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!!!

I created 3 cards with this Suite that I want to share with you. All 3 cards feature the same layout and each packs a different wow.

Card 1:

This card features Night of Navy as its primary color and I added some copper embellishments from the Suite for some extra pizzazz.

Card 2:

For the second card, I used Mossy Meadow and flipped the card vertically. I used more of the copper embellishments to really make the copper in the designer paper pop.

Card 3:

This card highlights one of our new In-colors, Pretty Peacock. I let the pattern in the designer paper do all the work for this one. I punched out a small ornament from some copper foil paper and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Tufted 3D embossing folder. It just gives it that extra little touch don’t ya think?


For detailed instructions on how to make these cards, watch my video here:

Boo to You with Colored Pencils

BOO! 

… are ya scared yet?  No?  Then check out my little green monster!  

On Tuesday’s Facebook Live, I showed how to make two cards.  I posted the second card of the video yesterday, so I am posting the first card today.  I elected to do a Halloween card using some bright Designer Paper… that makes my little monster-man not-so-scary.

How bout now?  Still not scared? 

Boo to You 1

Well, I’m so glad you’re not scared!  I think he’s so cute that I want to take him trick or treating!  Since he doesn’t scare you, then my video on how to make this card wont scare you either, so go check it out!  I promise, it wont give you nightmares!

Snowman Seasons Stamp Set with Watercolor Pencils

Woot Woot!  Our new Holiday Catalog is now LIVE and everyone can order from it!  I was in love with it at first sight… and today’s card uses products I just gushed over! If you do not have a catalog, contact me today and I will happily get one to you.

I used the Snowman Seasons Stamp Set with some coordinating products.  You can purchase the stamp set, coordinating Snowman Builder Punch, and some awesome goodies and embellishments with a single item code… how cool is that?!  No worries about forgetting to add something in.  Stampin Up thought of everything with this product suite…

For me, I love any stamp set that inspires coloring and bling… so this set quickly went to the top of my list!  The bling really does not show up well in the picture, but watch my video below for full instructions and a better view of the sparkle on this card!

NC Demo Blog Hop – Floral Inspirations


For this month’s NC Demo Blog Hop, we were tasked with finding a picture of flowers that inspire us!  I chose a picture I took of my gifts I received from my work team a couple of months ago… they really do appreciate me! (But not as much as I appreciate them).   I received flowers and chocolates!!!

So, I came home and started going through my Pressed Petals Designer Paper and created this card:

This paper packs such a wow on its own that it needs very little added to it. I just heat embossed my sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set in Copper and layered it on some copper foil.

Then I used the Pressed Petals Washi Tape to create my flower. Tip: rub your embossing buddy on the tips of the Washi Petals so they don’t stick to your card. That will help keep your Petals raised up.

Card measurements:

  • Card Base: 11″ x 4 1/4″, folded in half
  • Layer: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • Designer Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Copper Foil: 1 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
  • Sentiment Layer: 1″ x 4 1/4″
