PPP November Blog Hop Jolly Gingerbread

Welcome to the PPP November Blog Hop as we showcase alternative project ideas for the Jolly Gingerbread Kit. This fun, festive kit is perfect for the holidays and we are excited to share our ideas and projects with you to help you think outside of the box. 
The gift card holders in this Paper Pumpkin kit are so cute and I love all the wonderful detail. But what if you need something a little bigger to hold a treat? I decided to combine the supplies from the Jolly Gingerbread kit with the Little Treat Box Dies from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog to create this fun treat holder for the holidays. With just a few coordinating supplies from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, this treat holder is simple to create and you can create a whole gingerbread village to give to family and friends. They would also be a sweet place card holder idea for the dinner table on Christmas Day. 
As you can see, I die cut one of the Little Treat Boxes using the die from the Little Treat Box Dies (item #153571) from Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I cut one of the gift card holder bases from the kit, along the score lines to create the front and back of the gingerbread house. I decorated the Whisper White layer for the front and back of the house using the exclusive stamp set from the kit and the Blushing Bride Ink Spot. I stamped the sentiment onto the sentiment label and embellished it with two small Basic Pearls that I colored with the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Marker. I attached the decorated house layers to the front and back of the treat box with Stampin' Seal to complete the treat holder. The candy gems add the final touch.

3D Paper Trimmer November Blog Hop Christmas Is Coming Fast

 It's time to hop along with the 3D Paper Trimmer November Blog Hop as we explore the theme "Christmas Is Coming Fast". It's hard to believe that we are approaching the end of November already and soon it will be time to celebrate Christmas. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help you get ready for this wonderful time of the year. 
Today I thought I would share this easy fun fold card design that is perfect for creating that Wow Christmas card quickly and simply. I combined the Don't Stop Believin' stamp set and the Tis The Season 6"x6" Designer Series Paper from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog to decorate this fancy fold card using traditional Christmas colors. The gold embossing adds that extra special touch that is perfect for taking your card to the next level. 
Products Used:
Don't Stop Believin' stamp set (item #153332)
Tis The Season 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #153489)
Ornate Frames Dies (item #150664)
Snowflake Splendor 1/4" Ribbon (item #153548)
Shaded Spruce Cardstock (item #146981)
Real Red Cardstock (item #102482)
Gilded Gems (item #152478)
Gold Embossing Powder (item #109129)
Measurements:
Shaded Spruce Cardstock card base - 4 1/4" x 11"
(scored at 2 1/4", 3 5/8". 7 3/8" & 8 3/4")
Real Red Cardstock layer - 3 1/2" x 4"
Tis The Season Designer Series Paper - 2" x 4" (2 pieces)
Shaded Spruce Cardstock - For sentiment label
I discovered this wonderful fun fold card design on You Tube in a video created by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Brenda Quintana. The secret to this card design is crisp fold lines that give the card its wonderful shape and allows it to stand up on its own. The side panels are decorated with the pieces of designer series paper and I heat embossed the Santa image from the Don't Stop Believin' stamp set with Gold Embossing Powder to make it pop against the Real Red cardstock. The sentiment label was cut with one of the Ornate Frames Dies from Shaded Spruce cardstock and I embellished it with two of the medium sized Gilded Gems. I love how the pretty Snowflake Splendor Ribbon adds the finishing touch to this card design. You can add a Whisper White cardstock panel to the back side of the card, in the center panel, for a place to write your Christmas message. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my fancy fold card design helps inspire you to create your own fun projects to help celebrate the holidays. There are so many wonderful options to choose from in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.

SBTD November Blog Hop Holiday Decorations

Welcome to the SBTD November Blog Hop as we share our Holiday Decoration ideas to help inspire you to get creative for the Holidays. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their creativity with you. 
For my Christmas decoration, I chose to create a framed wall hanging using the Poinsettia Petals Bundle (item #155148) with the beautiful Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (item #153487) which can both be found in the Poinsettia Place Suite in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. I used an inexpensive 5"x7" picture frame as the base for this design and added a layer of the pretty paper to create the background. I love the traditional Christmas red and green combination with a touch of gold to step up the design. This is a great way to convert a simple frame into a wonderful way to decorate your home. 
Products Used:
Poinsettia Petals Bundle (item #155148)
Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (item #153487)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
Whisper White Cardstock (item #100730)
Gold Embossing Powder (item #109129)
Real Red Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154899)
Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154892)
Gilded Gems (item #152478)
Basic Pearl Jewels (item #144219)
Measurements:
Poinsettia Place Designer Series background layer - 5" x 7"
Whisper White cardstock - For sentiment label and die cuts
This is a quick and easy project to create and a great way to add personal touches to your home for the holidays. This framed art would also be a lovely gift to someone. The poinsettia flower and leaves have been embossed with Gold Embossing Powder onto Whisper White cardstock and I colored the images using the Real Red Stampin' Blends Combo Pack for the flower and the Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Pack for the leaves. I also embossed the sentiment onto the Whisper White cardstock label that I die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I attached the designer series paper background to the base of the frame and added the embossed sentiment label to the background using Stampin' Seal. I added the poinsettia and leaves using Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the center of the flower, I added three large basic pearls and I added three of the small gold Gilded Gems to embellish the sentiment label. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my project will inspire you to create your own wonderful projects to help you decorate for the Holidays. There are so many wonderful ideas and products in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog to choose from.

The Joy Of Sets November Blog Hop Thankful For You

It's time to hop along with The Joy Of Sets December Blog Hop and this month we are sharing ideas with the theme of "Thankful For You". Thank you cards are so important and something we need all through the year. It is a wonderful way to show appreciation to someone and a great way to brighten someone's day. You will get the opportunity to see a wonderful variety of ideas and projects along our blog hop to help inspire you. 
My card design today is a clean and simple design with an elegant twist. The beautiful Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper has copper foil accents that really help to step up this card design. To coordinate, I added a layer of Brushed Copper Metallic cardstock to accent the sentiment label. My favorite bundle for Thank You cards would have to be the So Sentimental Bundle and I love how the dies nest to create wonderful layers. I heat embossed the sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder to coordinate with the rest of the design and added a touch of bling with two large Basic Rhinestone Jewels. This card design is easy to duplicate without sacrificing on the wonderful design and requires just a few supplies to create. This simple layout design can be used with a variety of pretty papers to change the look and feel of the card for a variety of occasions.

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share Special November Blog Hop as we share projects we are currently working on using current Stampin' Up! products. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their creative ideas and projects to help inspire you. 

With everything that has happened this year, I have been focusing on fun and cheerful Christmas card designs to help make people smile. The Have A Hoot Bundle (item #155208) from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog has images and sentiments that are perfect for this type of card and I paired it with the pretty Classic Christmas 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #155969) from the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle, which has wonderful patterns in traditional Christmas colors. 

Products Used:
Have A Hoot Bundle (item #155208)

Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (item #151326)

Whisper White Cardstock (item #100730)
Shaded Spruce Classic Ink Pad (item #147088)

This clean and simple Christmas card is easy to create and simple to duplicate. The image of the owls from the Have A Hoot stamp set was stamped onto the large Whisper White oval with Soft Suede Classic ink and colored with a variety of Stampin' Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment with Shaded Spruce Classic ink just below the image and also to the smaller Whisper White oval. To embellish the card, I added a small bow tied with Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and I attached it to the top of the large image. For a touch of bling, I added two small Basic Rhinestones to the small oval sentiment label to complete the design. The Have A Hoot stamp set has several images suitable for creating cute Christmas cards and the Classic Christmas 6"x6" Designer Series Paper has a wonderful variety of patterns to help you create cards for all your family and friends.
