Have you been enjoying your Blendabillities Markers from Stampin' Up!?  I love coloring with mine.. it's like a flashback to my childhood and Crayola Crayons, coloring books, activity books... did you love all those activities too?  Were you a color in the lines person?  I WAS!!

Blendabilities-bloom-with-hope-daffodil--stampin-up-card-1

Did you Know?  a bundle of Blendabilities Markers will be ON SALE on Monday, Dec. 1st!? :)  Check back here on Dec. 1st for the link, or check my online store on Dec. 1 for the 1 day Door Buster Deals!

Today's Stampin' Up! card features the Hostess set called Bloom with Hope, and I colored it with 3 different sets of Blendabilities Markers.. .Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Skin Tones.  I enjoyed blending colors from all of those packages on the stamped flower images.  Remember, when you are coloring with Blendabilties, be sure your image is stamped with a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad on Whisper White cardstock for best results.

Blendabilities-bloom-with-hope-daffodil--stampin-up-card-flower-fair

 I die cut a flower using the Flower Fair framelit set and some scraps of designer series paper from the Moonlight Paper Stack - in fact the great bold striped background is from the same pack!  I added punched out pieces for the flower center (see product photos below for more info/ordering links).  A Candy Dot is the perfect last embellishment on the card.  Kind of like the period at the end of the sentence.. right?

-------------------

Is it a Christmas Card? or just a pretty flower Card?

When I made this card last summer, my friends all said

"it looks like a Christmas card"..

so I waited until now to show it you you all!

What do you think.. could this be a Christmas card?

Blendabilities-bloom-with-hope-gold-striped-vellum-card-stampin-up

 I stamped this BEAUTIFUL flower from one of the Stampin' Up! hostess sets with the Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad, on Whisper White paper, then colored it with my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities markers!  I colored the leaves with the Old Olive markers and cut them both out by hand.  My Blendabilities Video Tutorials are on my YouTube Channel here if you need a few tips for coloring.

133363-gold-vellum

The Gold Fancy Designer Vellum comes in a package with 2 sheets of each design shown at left: stripes, polka dots and hearts.  The sheets are 12" x 12" so if you cut them like I did for the card above at 4" or less by 5" or 5-1/4" you will have enough to make 36 cards out of one pack! 

order yours online today #133363

I cut the gold striped vellum at 3-3/4" x 5" and layered it onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and layered that onto a folded Whisper White card. TIP: be sure to only add your adhesive behind the solid gold areas.. not behind the vellum portion... the adhesive will show there.

 

Finishing off this card is a small strip of Gold Glimmer Paper (#133719) and Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon.

Blendabilities-bloom-with-hope-gold-striped-vellum-card-flower

I'm really loving this pretty card!!

So what do you think.. would you make this for a Christmas card!?  If you would like to order any of the products for this project, you can simply click any of the photos below.

Reminder about Hostess Sets.. they are available for an amazing discounted price but you can only buy them with hostess dollars.  So when your Stampin' UP! order or party is over $150, you earn hostess dollars to spend on anything you want in the catalog and you can get this gorgeous Bloom with Hope set for only $17 (clear) or $23 (wood)!

Project-life-hello-december-album-cover-bennett

I was packing up my Hello December album to take to our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group event and I decided that the album cover NEEDED to be decorated.. so I pulled out my Star Stencil and my Tree Punch and in a matter of about 10 minutes it was done!

Project-life-hello-december-cover

Tutorial for the star stenciled cover is shown below at the bottom of this post.

Project-life-hello-december-album

Our Bennett Family 2014 Hello December album will be the keeper of the memories for our Elf on the Shelf photos.  Jason named our Elf "Carlito" .. so we'll be taking pix of Carlito each day and putting them in our album! Need Elf on the Shelf Ideas? Click Here to view my Pinterest Board!

Project-life-hello-december-book-stampin-up

I used the Trim the Tree Paper Stack and my Tree Punch (both from the Holiday catalog) and added paper trees to the cover.. complete with punched out stars for tree toppers!!  Did you miss my previous post with info on how to make the smaller trees?  Check it out here.

Project-life-hello-december-album-cover-tree-punch

The star punch is from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack and works perfectly as a tree topper for these trees!  I punched the stars out of the "Under the Tree" Designer paper (also from the Holiday catalog).  See all the products used at the Bottom of this post.. click any item to go right to my online store for easy ordering.

Project-life-hello-december-star-punch-cover

  Project-life-album-cover-how-to-stencil

As you can see.. stenciling the cover is really easy with the Star Mask (stencil) and Stampin' Up! Classic ink and a sponge dauber! Use Washi Tape to hold down the mask while stenciling.

Christmas Blog Tour with the Control Freaks

 

Freakwelcome2013

WELCOME to the November 2014

  Control Freak

  Blog Tour!!!

Our theme this month:

Stampin' Up! projects featuring

a Christmas theme

 

   You have probably reached me after visiting Justin's Amazing blog, and if not, be sure to travel backwards on the tour and visit him! :)

Project #1: Gift Box - Get your Santa On Tag

Kraft-gift-box-under-the-tree-get-your-santa-on-box-christmas

I wanted to dress up a Kraft Gift Box (found on pg 200 in your Stampin' UP! Catalog), so I cut pieces of Under the Tree heavy-weight designer paper and covered each side, leaving a small border around each piece.  Then I used the adorable new stamp set called Get Your Santa On and stamped it with Memento Black ink and Colored it with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities markers.  Did you notice the cute little "stitched" images at the bottom of the tag!?  Want to know where I found those? They are in the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set!!  (see pg 35 Holiday Catalog #135188). I created my own 2" x 4-1/4" tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Oh, and Merry Christmas... that's from 2 different sets..I thought that was pretty clever!!  MERRY is from Cheerful Tags (pg 5) and Christmas is from Watercolor Winter Too (pg 37).

I topped it all off with Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon (pg 7) and some Mossy Meadow ribbon #133670 - oh and a Gold Button!

Christmas-gift-box-designer-paper

 Project #2: Santa & Co Winter Wonderland card

Santa-co-snowman-card-december-wonder-stampin-up

I know that the "Jury is Out" on the Santa & Co. paper and the Visions of Santa stamp set (Pg 29 Holiday catalog), but I LOVE LOVE LOVE these patterns from the Santa & Co. DSP pack... so cheery for winter and Christmas!  I added them to a folded Whisper White card, then tied the new Real Red 3/8" Satin Woven Ribbon.. the detail in this ribbon is just gorgeous. I stamped Winter Wonderland from the new Project Life December Wonder stamp set (supplement pg 9) then made it in to a banner and added 3 Nordic Noel Buttons to pull together the red, white and blue color scheme.

I love the idea of creating a really nice custom looking gift bag less than $1!!

Seriously!? Less than $1.00?  Yes!

With the Petite Cafe Gift Bags from Stampin' Up!, you receive 10 bags for only $5.95, and you can dress them up with scrap pieces of Designer Paper and punched out embellishments to dress them up ...

BUT WAIT.. the BEST part is the cute die cut opening!! How CUTE is that!?

If you are wondering how to create the custom die cut opening, just see the tutorial below!

See the bags on pg 10 of the Holiday catalog from Stampin' Up! or Order your Petite Cafe Bags here in my online store anytime!

Petite-cafe-bag-custom-die-cut-stampin-up

Just think of all the different die cut shapes you could use with your bags!! I used a shape from the Chalk Talk Framelit set (here online).

You could try the DECO LABELS - they are ON SALE THIS WEEK!

I love how easy it is to customize the bag with any shape frameilt and your Big Shot!

Now, here are a few tips for creating the banner I added to the bag:

How-to-create-christmas-wishes-banner

For extra added dimension, put double high Stampin' Dimensionals under the center of the banner!

Petite-cafe-bag-santa-co-christmas-wishes-2

 I love this pretty paper from the Nordic Noel package - found on page 15 of the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog or HERE ONLINE.

Which die cut framelit shape will YOU use on your Cafe Bag?

and better yet, which type of candy or goodie are YOU putting inside?

How to Alter the Tree Punch from Stampin' UP!

 

Have you ever wished you could make different sized trees with the Stampin' Up! Tree Punch!?  Wish no more... here is how you do it!

 

How-to-alter-tree-punch-stampin-up

137640-festitval-of-trees-photopolymer-bundle  {{just a little service announcement}}

 Regarding the Tree punch on pg 24 in the 2014 Holiday Catalog... this catalog expires on Jan. 5, 2015, and there is no guarantee that this punch will be around after that date... so if you are thinking of buying it or buying the Bundle with the stamp set at a 15% discount (shown at left)... my suggestion is get it soon!

Tree-punch-altered-sizes

This was the technique that I taught with my Stamp A Rama card on Saturday to my Luv 2 Stamp Group... wow did we have a fun day!!!  More photos to come.. but here are a couple I have to share with you today!

DSCN9000

Our Luv 2 Stamp Group events are always tons of fun.. but hang on.. yes.. is that CARRIE CUDNEY from the Stampin' Up! Home Office in Utah!?  Why YES it is!  So that makes our day doubly amazing!! :)  Thanks, Carrie for visiting us and sharing your Hello December Project Life tips and book with us!!

Oh ya.. and then to any great party there is a great after-party, right!?

About a dozen of us went to the Container Store in Walnut Creek after the meeting and had fun shopping for nearly 2 hours, watching a gift wrap/bow making demo and dreaming about all the amazing ways we could organize our craft rooms! Then we enjoyed dinner out together.. what a long, fun day it was!

Santa & Co. Tiny Treat Boxes

 

Tiny Treat Box Goodie Holder

I knew you would love this idea, so I had to share it with you!!  My friend (and amazing stamper) Cindee Wilkinson shared this idea with me... she put 2 of the Tiny Treat Boxes back to back to create the cutest little candy treat holder!!! I decided to try it out with Santa & Co. designer paper from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. I think the reindeer on this paper are really cute... ok and the Santas make me smile.. .but they are a little "out there" for me.. what do you think?

How to:

Leaving 2 Tiny Treat Boxes flat, decorate 3 sides of each box.

I cut out squares from the Santa & Co. Designer Paper (pg 29 Holiday catalog). Use Square Framelits to cut out the reindeer and Santas or use square punches.  Layer the square DSP pieces on solid Cardstock (I used Garden Green and Real Red)

Apply Fast Fuse Adhesive to the sides shown below then Pop Up the boxes into shape, but don't fold down the piece that would be the lid - just stick those together.

Add a tag and you are done assembling!

Voila! how easy is that!  You can make 12 of these from one package of 25 boxes for only $6.95!!!!  WHAT?  yep!

 Fill with shreddie paper and candies or treats and you have just the cutest little giftie!!!
