Fun With the Hallows Night Bundle!

Happy Sunday to all!

Here’s another card share post from Barbara Levitz.  Barbara is a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in my down line. She designed this card using the Hallows Night Bundle from the August December 2020 Mini Catalog.

I think spiders are supposed to be scary, but this one is too cute to be scary.  If you look closely, Barbara added Shimmery Crystal Effects to the spider and he certainly glistens (it’s hard to see it in the picture). She also outlined the spider’s web with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and that web surely sparkles. (Both are on page 147 in the Annual Catalog).

The bit of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper nicely compliments the Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight card stock.  That sentiment font is simple, clean and elegant.

Here’s a glimpse of the Magic In This Night Product Suite:

So, grab your scary spider, cover it with shimmery crystal, hang it in a window, add a touch of plaid and create a Halloween hello!

Sharing Snow Wonder in Night of Navy!

Happy Saturday to all!

Today’s post is a special treat! One of my Stampin’ friends and a member of my downline, Barbara Levitz, came by to stamp and share.  We spent the day together sharing our new goodies and stamping. Barbara created this beautiful card and I thought I would share it with you. I love the snowman greeting holiday guests at a festive door.

All of the stamped images are from the Snow Wonder stamp set and the snowman and wreath were cropped with the Snow Time Dies. The images in this stamp set are beautifully detailed and ready for color,  embossing or just ink.

The copper foil stars on the Night of Navy background is a design from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. That Paper is a returning favorite from last year and I can see why. It’s stunning and my photography doesn’t do it the justice it deserves.

The little slice of Sahara Sand card stock was embossed with one of the new Wrapped in Texture embossing folders.  It’s a subtle basket weave pattern that gives this card a nice pop of texture.

Here’s the supply list:

  • Stamp and Die Bundle – Snow Wonder Bundle.
  • Card Stock – Night of Navy, Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP, In Good Taste DSP, and Gold Foil.
  • Ink – Night of Navy, Smoky Slate.
  • Stampin’ Blends – Misty Moonlight, Shaded Spruce and Real Red.

So, grab some shiny foiled card stock, crop a detailed snowman, add a door and a shiny door knob and create something warm and welcoming.





Wrapped in Christmas!

In yesterday’s post, I featured a clean and simple note card set using products from the Heartwarming Hugs Suite. I use these note cards to give a little thank you to special friends during the holiday season.  Here’s the link to yesterday’s post.

I thought I would share my gift wrapping design for this year’s gift.  All the patterned paper is from the Heartwarming Hugs Suite.  Matching up the patterns was so easy with the color coordination in the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.

The color palette is a classic Christmas combination as are the patterns: stripes, polka dots, gingham, plaid and smaller subtle combinations of shapes all mixed together in Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red and Whisper White.

Below is the “how to” for the note card decorated gift box.

  • Start with a Whisper White Mini Pizza Box (p.152 in the Annual Catalog);
  • Add a 3 1/4″ square of patterned paper to the top inside flap;
  • The Real Red belly band is 10″ by 2 1/4″.
  • The rosette base is 12″ by 1 3/4″. I punched one 12″ side with a linear scalloped punch I had in my stash. Actually you can use a scalloped edgelit or framelit if you want the scalloped edge. Score each scallop or if you don’t have a scalloped edge, score the rosette base every 1/2″.
  • Fan fold the rosette base on each score line. (I use my Bone Folder to burnish the edges for a clean fold line);
  • Attach the ends together. I used green glue (Multipurpose Liquid Glue – p. 162 in the Annual Catalog) because I always do, but you can use the Stampin’ Seal which will also securely bond your edges.
  • With my 1 1/2″ circle punch, I punched two circles from Pear Pizzazz card stock
  • On a Silicone Craft Sheet, I flattened the rosette, held it in place and ran a generous amount of green glue around the center.
  • Attach one circle and hold it in place for a few seconds.
  • Repeat the glue application on the other side of the rosette and attach the second cropped circle. Hold that in place for a few seconds.
  • I used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to create the “celebrate” sentiment banner, added a few cropped trees from the Warm Hugs Bundle (I just love those little trees), and a little red heart.

Please comment with any questions you might have, I’d be happy to help.

So, grab your beautiful note cards, make a belly band and a rosette, add your sentiment, a few embellishments and give a handmade gratitude gift!
