Watercolor Words & Cotton Paper

My friend's birthday is this month and I never wrap her birthday present in Christmas wrap so I pulled out some Designer Series Paper and made this tag and belly band to go around the box.

Watercolor_words_gift

I started with a pattern from the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper pack, cut the width I needed and wrapped it around the box securing it with our Tear & Tape Adhesive.

I then wrapped some of our Bermuda Bay Thick Baker's Twine around a couple of times and tied it in a bow.  For the tag, I used one of our large Gold Foil Metallic Doilies and added a 2-1/2 Circle Punch stamped with the "just for you" greeting from the Watercolor Words set.  I added a couple of banners cut from Gold Glimmer Paper and the diagonal stripe pattern in the Neutrals Paper Stack under the greeting. 

For the fringes under the banners, I cut two strips from the Bermuda Bay sheet in the Cherry on Top Cotton Paper and snipped and curled the ends.  Hope she likes it!!

Sale-a-bration starts in two weeks!

Our biggest sale of the year, SALE-A-BRATION starts in two short weeks so I have been busy preparing my swaps and this is one of them.

I used two Sale-a-bration products on this card, the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper and the Perfect Pairings stamp set.  The Wildflower Fields DSP is full of amazing floral patterns but I love, love, love this mosaic pattern, it is too much fun!!! Perfect_pariings_tshirt
Perfect_pariings_tshirt_closeThe Calypso Coral strip peeking out from behind the patterned paper is done with the Rotary Addition on my Stampin Trimmer.  I used the Tiny Wave Blade for a fun zigzag effect.

 

I used the Baby's First Framelits to crop the baby onesie and snipped off the bottom to create a t-shirt.  The Little Numbers Thinlits are perfect for adding the age.  You will be able to earn the stamp set and DSP FREE with your orders during Sale-a-bration.

Tag a Bag Gift Card Holders

Among_branches_gc_holder

This was one of our club projects back in November.  We used the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags and created these amazing gift card holders.

How to:
*Place the bottom of the bag along the 3" line of your Stampin' Trimmer and score.
*Fold this up to create the double pouch, one for the greeting and one for the gift card.
*Cut a piece of Whisper White and one of the patterns from the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to 4-3/4 x 2-1/2, layer them together and attach to the front of the folded up bag where shown.
*Stamp the "making spirits bright" greeting from the Among the Branches set and crop with the 2" Circle Punch.  Add this to a 2-3/8 Scallop Circle cropped from our Silver Foil Sheets. 
*Lay a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the printed vellum and add a strip of the White Glitter Ribbon, then tie a piece of Silver Cording Trim around the whole thing to keep it closed.

Among_branches_gc_holder_bluein

Cut a piece of Whisper White to 4-5/8 x 4, use the Curvy Corner Trio Punch on two of the corners on one of the long sides.  Stamp your greetings in Night of Navy.  I chose the "Merry Christmas" greeting from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and the other two fun greetings from the B.Y.O.P. stamp set designed specifically with gift card giving in mind.

Among_branches_gc_holder_blue
Here are the other two I made using the other two patterns in the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  The Foil Vellum, the Real Red & Garden Green 1/8" Striped Ribbon and the Gold & White 3/8" Glitter Ribbon are part of the Year End Sale and are discounted!!

Season to Season Wreath

The Season to Season Wreath is part of the Year End Sale and is a whopping 40% off. You can use this wreath starting in October all through Christmas. It would be the perfect gift.  You simply change the ribbon and banner to create a wreath for all three seasons.

Halloweenwreath Fallwreath Christmaswreath
Stampin' Up! has a video showing you how to assemble the wreath.

 When you purchase the Season to Season Wreath, be sure to add the coordinating stamp set.


Another Embellished Ornaments

Earlier this week, I posted THIS CARD using the Embellished Ornaments Bundle.  Today I have another card using the same bundle but with a different look.

Embellished_ornaments_blue

For this card, I stamped the long skinny ornament from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set in Versamark Ink, covered it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set it. I then created a mask out of copy paper, placed it over my embossed ornament and stamped the wide ornament in Soft Sky ink overlapping the embossed ornament so it looks like it is behind the skinny ornament.

I then took two quarter sheets of Whisper White and die cut the long skinny ornament out of one and the wide ornament out of the other.  I placed the negative space of the long skinny ornament die cut over the embossed image and used my Sponge Daubers and Solft Sky and Island Indigo inks to add the color.  I then placed the negative space of the wide ornament die cut over the wide stamped ornament and added a bit of shading with Island Indigo ink to the left edge.

Embellished_ornaments_blue_close1

I added some Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details to the holly berries for a bit of shine.

The greeting was double stamped, meaning that I stamped it in Soft Sky, then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to over stamp it slightly offset in Island Indigo.

Embellished Ornaments

There are a number of products retiring from the Holiday Catalog and some are even sold out.  You can see the updated list - Holiday Catalog Retiring List

Thankfully the Embellished Ornaments Bundle isn't on this list.  I used both the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits for this card.

Embellished_ornaments_purple

I know you are wondering how I did the gorgeous shading behind the die cut silver ornament and you won't believe how easy it is.

Embellished_ornaments_purple_spongeI stamped my Whisper White layer with the holly and berries stamp in Smoky Slate and my greeting in Elegant Eggplant.

For the ornament, I die cut one of the solid ornaments from a quarter sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  I placed the negative image over my stamped layer and used sponge daubers to add Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder to the ornament space.

Then I die cut a coordinating detailed ornament out of Silver Foil Sheets and added it over the sponged ornament.  Easy Peasy!!

I layered this onto Elegant Eggplant and then onto a Wisteria Wonder card base.

The berries were "colored" with our Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details.
