We Bee Stamping Team Blog Hop - Marching Into Spring

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our March Blog Hop - Marching Into Spring

It's coming... it's finally coming!  Have you ever been so excited to see spring coming more than this year?  I, for one, feel like winter has lasted forever and that we have been locked inside since I don't know when.  I am sure its likely because, this month, we will be in what I call Covid mode, for a year.  Spring to me is new life, renewal, fresh air, bright colors, flowers and more.  Bring it on!

For my Marching Into Spring project, I chose to combine a few of my favorite products.  The NEW (starts March 2, 2021) Butterfly Bouquet, the Forever Fern Bundle, and semi-new Many Messages Bundle.

Let's take a look:

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_12-01-07.09.38

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.
