We Bee Stamping Team Blog Hop - Simple Christmas Gifts

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Hello there!  And welcome to our We Bee Stamping Team Blog Hop for December.  This month we are all sharing a Simple Christmas Gift made with Stampin' Up! products.  

I have a fun and beautiful project and I really hope you not only like it, but try and make one too!  

People who know me, know that I have been crafting most of my adult life.  There just about isn't anything I won't try... well, except for crocheting.  I just never was able to pick up on that craft.  Who knows, maybe one day I will try again.

Each year I try to come up with something different to make.  It could be a wall hanging, decorated glass etching, floral arrangement, or a host of other things.  This year I decided on ornaments.  I have done a ton of ornaments in the past but I think this one makes it all the worth while to revisit the ornament idea!  I just love how it came out and the poinsettia flower was pretty quick and easy to make.

Ornament featuring the Poinsettia Petals Bundle:

PicsArt_12-01-07.11.31

Details:

  • Gold Emboss 3 sizes of the Poinsettia Flower petals on Real Red card stock then die cut them out
  • Using Stampin' Spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol and several drop of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, heavily sprits the 3 flowers
  • While still damp, crimp up each petal
  • Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere the 3 layers of petals together making sure not to overlap the leaves
  • Add a Beaded Pearl Embellishment to center with glue dots
  • Die cut 5 Sprigs from Brushed Metallic cardstock and adhere to back of poinsettia
  • Cut 3 pieces of Real Red 3/8" Sheer Ribbon to 6" lengths.  Cut ends to an angle, fold in half and adhere to back with glue dots
  • Cut 2 pieces of Gold Cording from the Wonder of the Season ribbon combo pack and adhere onto back of flower with glue dots*
  • Punch a circle out of Real Red card stock to cover all the ribbon and springs on back of poinsettia.  Circle punch can be 1-1/2, 2, or 2-1/4, which ever size you have.  I used the 1-1/2" Circle Punch. 

*The 2 pieces of cording:  one piece is to tie the poinsettia to the neck of the ornament.  The second piece is to make a loop to hang the ornament. 

  • add a couple of glue dots to the back of the poinsettia so it sticks to a glass or plastic ornament
  • hang and enjoy.... or add a tag with a sweet sentiment for a special someone.

We BEE Stamping Blog Hop - Sharing A Technique

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Hi!  Thank you for checking out our blog hop.  We are all sharing a stamping technique with you, so I hope you enjoy and like our ideas.

My technique is the Emboss Resist method.  It is one of my favorite techniques to do and it has been around forever.  I love embossing too!

PicsArt_09-28-11.43.37

Emboss resist is when you use embossing powder to resist color added to card stock.  For this project, I used White Embossing Powder on Whisper White card stock then applied my ink colors over top.  You could also use clear embossing powder and also use colored card stock.  The possibilities are endless. 

Card Details:

Stamp Set Bundle:  Snowflake Wishes Bundle

Card Stock:  Balmy Blue, Petal Pink and Whisper White and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper

Ink:  Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Petal Pink and VersaMark

Accessories:  White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Snowflake Splendor 1/4" Ribbon, Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems, Stampin' Sponges

  • Balmy Blue card base cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2.  Scored at 4-1/4 on long side
  • Petal Pink CS cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8, die cut snowflake from middle and set snowflake to the side. 
  • Adhere Petal Pink 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 piece on top of card base
  • Whisper White CS cut 4 x 5-1/4, randomly stamp snowflakes all over with VersaMark ink
  • Cover snowflakes with White Embossing powder then heat set
  • Sponge Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Petal Pink over heat embossed snowflakes
    •    work on scrap paper & start swirling ink on from scrap paper to your project.  This helps prevent harsh ink marks
  • Adhere piece of ribbon onto embossed and sponged piece then adhere on top of Petal Pink CS
  • Die cut a different snowflake from Highland Heather CS and Glue Dot to the Petal Pink snowflake
  • Die cut yet another different snowflake out of the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper
  • Glue dot Glimmer snowflake with glue dot and place a Blue Gem in Center
  • Adhere snowflake to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Stamp words in Balmy Blue on Whisper White and mat with Balmy Blue CS.
    • my words on Whisper White that is approximately 3/8 x 2-1/2
    • Balmy Blue CS mat is approximately 1/2 x 2-5/8
    • Add to card front with Mini Dimensionals

I hope you enjoyed my project.  Give the emboss resist technique a try!

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Fall Is In The Air

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our TEAM Blog Hop!  Our theme for September is Fall.  

I am excited as fall is my favorite time of the year.  The fresh, crisp air; warm and sunny days; and cool nights, not too mention the beautiful colors of changing leaves.  And I wouldn't dare leave out my ultimate favorite part, Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  Mmmmm.... I can hardly wait!

So what is your favorite season?

If you like fall too, you are going to love this card featuring the Plaid Tidings 6x6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  Stampin' Up! did such a great job in the plaid patterns and the color combinations.  Speaking of colors, there are at least sixteen, yes, 16 different Stampin' Up! colors featured with this paper, which I think makes it versatile for more than just fall.
