The Magic in this Night product suite from the August -December mini catalog is so so pretty.  The designer paper has a spooky elegance, and it pairs perfectly with the stylish Hallows Night Magic stamp and die bundle.  Add in some black glitter paper, iridescent pearls, and metallic mesh ribbon, and it is a total win!

 

 

 

MAGIC IN THIS NIGHT SUITE COLLECTION

#155122 Magic in this Night Suite

 

 

Today's project uses every product in the suite.  It was fun to make, and came together nicely.  I love the texture from the Cobwebs embossing folder, and the metallic mesh ribbon is so cool, it looks like spider webs on this card!

Come To Gather gift holder


Watercolor Pencil holder made using the Come To Gather product suite.

 

Hello!  Thanks for visiting!  

 

Today I am sharing this fun gift holder.  I made this as one of the gifts for my Fall Harvest Creative Escape attendees back in September.  Inside, I put a collection of Watercolor Pencils.  These boxes are quick to create, and can be adjusted easily to fit just about anything.  

 

I shared how to make the same style box in this post.

 

What a great way to give or receive a gift!

 

And once again, I have used the Come To Gather product suite, which I just love!

 

 

 

The Gathered Leaves dies in this collection are so versatile, not only do they cut, but they emboss as well!  Look at the beautiful detail on this leaf.

I added some gorgeous Golden Glitz Delicata Ink to help bring out the detail even more.  The Delicata inks are amazing!! They have been so popular, all 3 colors have sold out!  Fortunately, they will be back in stock later this month.

 

To create this project:

  • cut a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock 4" x 10 3/4", score at 1/2" on both long edges and 3" & 3 1/2" on one short edge
  • cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2" x 1"

Assemble the box.  Tie ribbon around box.  Punch a starburst from Come To Gather designer paper and layer over a 2 1/4" punched Pretty Peacock cardstock circle.  Adhere sentiment to front of circle, than adhere to box front with dimensionals.  Die cut a leaf.  Add golden glitz ink with a sponge, and adhere to the front of the box.

 

I hope you enjoyed today's project.  Stop back soon to learn how to make a spooky background!

Season of Thanks with Come To Gather and a Blog Hop

The Come To Gather product suite has a stamp/die bundle, gorgeous designer paper, beautiful ribbon, and fun veneer elements!

 

Hello and welcome to our mini blog hop! 

 

I know you will enjoy the amazing projects being shared with you today!

 

I love the Come To Gather product suite.  It includes this lovely stamp set, and coordinating dies, as well as gorgeous papers, ribbons, and fun veneer elements.

 

 

 

For my card today, I paired Mint Macaron ink with the amazing Delicata Celestial Copper ink.  This ink is beautiful.  It is --the-- best metallic ink I have ever used!  It is so shimmery and just lovely!

 

 

The Delicata ink comes in Copper, Gold, and Silver.
  

 

To create this card:

  • cut a thick very vanilla card base 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 12"
  • cut a designer paper layer 3 3/4" x 5"
  • cut a very vanilla layer 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
  • cut a very vanilla strip 1" x 2 1/2"

 

Randomly stamp the large maple leaf in Mint Macaron ink on the vanilla layer, and add copper dots.  Double stamp the maple leaf on a vanilla scrap in Mint Macaron ink, than copper ink.  Die cut and crumple.  Layer some Copper Trim on the back before adhering to the card front.  Double stamp the small pumpkins in Pretty Peacock ink, than copper ink, before die cutting.  Arrange the crumpled leaf, small pumpkins and sentiment on the card front.  Add Holiday Rhinestone Jewels for the finishing touch.

 

 

Layering ribbon or trim behind an element is a great way to add interest to your project.

 

 

Stampin' Tip:  Add ribbon, twine, or other trim behind an element to add dimension and interest to your project.

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves dies from the Come To Gather suite of products.

It is definitely a sweet day!  Today we say hello to the new 2019 Holiday Catalog.

 

The 2019 Holiday Catalog!

 

And I have made a sweet card for the occasion, with one of my favorite bundles, Harvest Hellos.

 

 

I love the Harvest Hellos bundle!

 

I love this bundle! It includes the Harvest Hellos stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder punch

 

 

 

I had several project ideas for this bundle and this is one of the first projects I made when I got my Holiday products.  I could hardly wait to share it with you today.  It is my favorite!!

 

I pulled in another exciting item from the Holiday Catalog - Shimmery Crystal Effects! This is a staple product that you need to add to your next order!  It can be used to add accents to your projects, but is also a fabulous adhesive!  

 

 

 

Stampin' Tips: 

  • Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to your projects for detail and dimension.
  • Create custom sentiments by stamping multiple sentiments and cutting the words apart to add to your project!

 

 

Creating custom sentiments is easy!

 

 

Check out these projects that I shared the other day, and I still have one more coming soon! 

 

What do you think? 

 

Don't you love this?  Once you start playing, you won't be able to stop!

 

Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to your project for detail and dimension.

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Real Red card base 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
  • cut a Real Red front layer 4" x 5 1/4", embossed with the Subtle embossing folder
  • cut 2 Whisper White layers at 3 1/8" x 4 1/8" and 3" x 4"

Stamp the smaller Whisper White layer with the Buffalo Check background stamp in Memento Black ink and layer onto the larger white layer, than add to the Real Red front layer.  Punch a Real Red and Soft Suade apple.  Fussy cut the Soft Suade apple to look like caramel, than cover it with Shimmery Crystal Effects.  When dry, adhere to apple.  Stamp sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, cut words apart, and add to the card front.  Enjoy!

Boo to You Pop-Up Monster Card and Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!

Boo to You stamp set with the Hammered Metal embossing folder and Monster Bash designer paper from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

 

I love Fall! 

 

It brings so many things which I enjoy:  crisp cool air (which means warm cozy clothes), apples & pumpkins, and the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!  And although the crisp cool air and cozy clothes part just isn't happening (yet), I have discovered the first of the fall apples are awesome, and so is this!!

 

07.27.19_TH_CATALOG_HC_PREORDER_ENG_JP

Introducing: the amazing new 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!

 

It is packed with awesomeness!  From stamps, punches, paper and embellishments, I love far to much of it!  And than I saw this, the Boo to You stamp set.  I have been wanting a monster stamp set for awhile, so this made me very happy!

 

As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a pop up card!  This gem is the result. 

 

 

Check out this guy!  He lives in the Boo To You stamp set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

 

The card base was created by tracing the outside of a Coffin Treat Box lid on a folded piece of Basic Black cardstock, than adding texture with the new Hammered Metal embossing folder.  Wait......coffin treat box?  Yup!  Those are in there too!  And this embossing folder will be used a ton!

Okay -- let's talk about something that is genius......Coffin treat boxes!  They are awesome!  They are pre-cut and scored, making them a snap to assemble and fill with your favorite Halloween treat!  I have a cool treat in mind, and may just have to show you in an upcoming post! 

 

And did you see the coffin wreath posted on my Facebook page?  Check it out if you haven't!  Grab some of these cool treat containers while you can, because I have a feeling they won't last long!!  Ordering starts September 4th.

Back to the monsters!  I started by creating a zombie for the front.  He was colored with a variety of Stampin' Blends, than fussy cut.  I also used Monster Bash designer paper for some contrast.  The interesting background piece is the web patterned paper from the same collection cut with the Under the Sea dies, and Monster Bash Enamel Shapes for the eyes.

The pop-up monster on the inside was also colored with a variety of Stampin' Blends, than fussy cut.  A strip of window sheet works perfectly to make him pop!

 

 

Attach your monster to the inside on a strip of window sheet to allow him to pop up.

 

I thought he would be extra cute holding a sign, so I punched a little hole through the monster's paws, and tied a piece of the Granny Apple Green twine from the Tags & More kit through the holes.   I added a strip of cardstock over the twine for the sign.

 

Stampin' Tips:

  • The twine is white with 1 ply of color.  Unraveled the plys to pull the colored ply out to use as a solid color twine.  

 

 

 

 

To create this card:

  • Trace the coffin treat box lid onto a Basic Black card base cut 11" x 4", scored at 5 1/2"
  • Cut the designer paper strip for the front 1" x 3 1/2"
  • Cut a strip of window sheet 1/2" x 4", scored at 1/2", 2", and 3 1/2"

 

The net die from the Under the Sea dies works perfectly to create a wicked web layer behind the zombie.  Repeatedly stamp the Boo to You sentiment on Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Versamark ink, before punching out with the Starburst punch to layer on the front.  The Monster Bash Enamel Shapes have little dots that work perfectly for dimensional eyes.

 

So what do you think? Are you excited to get your copy of the Holiday catalog?  If you don't have a demonstrator, and live in the US, I would love to provide a copy to you!  Just send me an email with your request, and I will get one on it's way.
