I had some left over strips of Halloween paper from the Toil and Trouble designer paper pack, so I added those to the pillow box then decorated with various stamps, die cuts and punched images from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.

I spritzed some Basic Black cardstock with Champagne Mist and Frost White Shimmer paint (see how in THIS VIDEO), and then punched out some bats using the Spooky Bats Punch to add to my projects!

Custom Colored Ribbon with Stampin’ Blends

Funny Story… I was helping my customer, Kim, with an issue with her online order, and I happened to ask her why she was ordering so many rolls of white and vanilla ribbon?  She mentioned this great technique to me and then I understood why she is stocking up! She is CUSTOM COLORING the ribbon with her Stampin' Blends markers!!!! It's SOOOO pretty!

So of course I HAD to try it immediately!!  I colored the 3/8" Gold Metallic edge vanilla ribbon with my Light Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends marker and OH MY GOSH.. how pretty!!  The vanilla based ribbon will sightly alter the color since it's not like coloring on White, but I love how it turned out!

 The card above/below features the Painted with Love designer paper (pg 19 Occasions catalog #145580), Gold Foil Paper #132622, and the Sale-a-Bration Celebrate Amazing You thinlits (a free gift choice with your $100 order through March 31, 2018 – see more about Sale-a-Bration here).

It's so easy, too!  Just protect your work surface with scratch paper or a Stampin' UP! Grid Sheet, and color the ribbon with long broad strokes and your Stampin' Blends marker!  It will bleed through to the other side, so no need to color both sides!

And then I couldn't stop.. I needed to try more colors.. Look how gorgeous the Light Night of Navy Stampin' Blends looks on the Metallic Edge Silver / White ribbon!!!!

 Will you try this!?  I hope so!  You will LOVE the results!

I shared this one with you before but it's another option when you are trying this technique … this is the 1/4" Whisper White Organza ribbon (pg 23 Occasions catalog), #145590, colored with the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker. (more details click here)

After Kim shared this idea with me, then she sent me the photo below… isn't this just STUNNING!?  This is the Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends on the Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon!  OH MY GOSH I just love this card she created with the Painted with Love designer paper and the beautiful Gold Glitter Flakes (pg 19, #146816).

Mini Pizza Box Christmas Gift Idea

 

If you joined me here yesterday you saw the results of our girls crafting day "Be Merry rosette ornaments" creations, and today I'm sharing a fun thing you might like to do with them.. put one on a Mini Pizza Box for a great little neighbor gift, teacher appreciation gift, co-worker gift, etc.!

This is one of the 7 projects we created last month at our Luv 2 Stamp Group event.  We made the rosette ornaments from the Be Merry kit and hot glued them to a pizza box!  It's the perfect little container for some holiday candy, treats or gift card!

We found that a hot glue gun was a great help in securing all these layers together.

In addition to the contents of the Be Merry ornament kit, we added a Foil Snowflake, punched circle from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, a stamped greeting from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, tag border from the Labels to Love set, and the Everyday Label punch. We also added an adorable stitched felt red star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments package, topped off with the Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon bow.

Final touches of gold: Faceted Gold Gems and Gold Metallic enamel shaped stars.

While I did bring extra embellishments to add to our ornaments, it's not necessary.. you will find lots of fun supplies in the kit, found on page 32 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I've listed all the "extras" I brought at the bottom of this blog post.

Karen (left) is our only "non crafty" friend.. she loves and appreciates what we create, but she has never attended a class or event before.. she was SO THRILLED with the ornaments she made!  It made me happy!  And it had been awhile since we has seen our friend Saundra, so that was great to spend the day with her too.  Below, right: Joy showing us one of her ornaments.

Aren't they all so pretty!?  We each made 3 or 4 ornaments and loved how they turned out!

The super fabulous feature about this Be Merry kit is that all 12 rosettes are already precut, scored, etc., you just fan them out and stick the 2 ends together to make the rosettes!!!!

Perfect Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Idea

 

We're so excited because my sister-in-law invited us to her home for Thanksgiving again this year.. we love and appreciate her hospitality!  I think this will make a sweet hostess gift to take to her!!  I used the Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set to stamp the sunflower image, leaves and thankful greeting, and the Gourd Goodness stamp set to stamp the pumpkins.

 

Painted Harvest and Gourd Goodness sunflower and pumpkins Hostess gift idea for Thanksgiving. Stampin' Up! supplies available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

Helpful Resources:

 

This jar is actually a candle holder jar from Michaels (see THIS post), but I took the candle holder part out, and filled the jar with candy, and then covered the hole in the lid with the stamped sunflower on the punched out circle!

To take out the candle holder portion, I just wiggled the piece back and forth and it eventually broke the weld.  Easy.

I tied it up with the 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron ribbon.

The pumpkins are stamped with Peekaboo peach and Pumpkin Pie ink. I love the photo-realistic images in this Gourd Goodness set.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to add them to a die cut Stitched Shape Whisper White oval piece. I stamped the greeting from Painted Harvest in Cajun Craze ink.

 The leaves are stamped and punched using the stamps in the Painted Harvest bundle – SAVE 10% when you buy the bundle including the stamp set and leaf punch! See the bottom of this post for all shopping info!
