Let's Celebrate

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Tag Thursday.  Today, I will feature a tag I created and show you how easy it is to use minimal supplies to create a SUPER PRETTY TAG.  Now that you have the details for my Tag Thursday creation for this week ........ Let's jump right in with my tag share for today........
How FESTIVE and FUN is this Halloween tag!!!!!
My base tag starts with a 2-1/2" x 4-1/4" White tag.  To the top of that piece ..... I used the dot pattern in the 'Bright, Regals and Neutrals DSP Stack' to create my pattern across the center of my tag.  My DSP pieces measure 1/2" and I just lined up the bottom panel and just adhered the remaining pieces above it.
My sentiment is from the 'Peaceful Deer' set and I just stamped it twice across the top DSP panel.
I topped my tag off with some 'Silver Cording'.....
And sprinkled a few silver stars from the 'Witch Hat Builder Punch' around the front of my tag.
So.....There you go friends.....
Don't you just LOVE IT!!!!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share some Friends Friday creations with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Best Witches Hat

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Wine-Down Wednesday.  My middle of the week card feature for today will hopefully offer you some inspiration and provide you with some motivation to keep you moving through your busy week.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today........
There's something SPECIAL to me about a White base card.
I started my card off today with a White base ..... And added a small White 5" x 3-3/4" embossed panel to the center.  I use the 'Painted Texture Embossing Folder' on that white panel and that gave me the FUN texture I was looking for.
I added a 1-1/2" x 3-3/4" panel of the 'Black & White Design DSP' across the bottom portion of my center White panel.  Before I adhered that DSP down ..... I wrapped some 'Gold Satin Edged Ribbon' that was colored with my Black Stampin' Blends and that worked out PERFECTLY.
My Witches hat was stamped from the 'Bewitching' set ..... And I used the coordinating 'Witches Hat Punch' to crop that CUTIE out.  My sentiment was stamped from the 'Best Witches' set.
I did add some 'Fine Tip Glue Pen' to create some SHINE to each of the dots on my Witches hat ..... And that created the PERFECT addition to this card.
I did add three '2022-24 In Color Matt Decorative Dots' to the bottom right-hand corner of my card ...... And I used my Stampin' Blends to color those dots in.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow with a Tag Thursday creation to share with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Hershey Slider Pop Open Gift

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is '3D TUESDAY'.  That means today I have a fun little 3-D project that I created and want to share with you.   This project was SO MUCH FUN to create and I want to jump right in and share that project with you now.
I was checking out Pinterest the other day and spotted this DARLING little project that Darby Whittier shared and the BEST PART ....... she has a YouTube video on how to assemble it (BIG SCORE FOR LEARNING HOW TO MAKE THIS PROJECT).  Here is a link to how she made her Hershey Bar Holder:  (1846) Full Size Hershey Bar Double Fry-Box Inspired Interlocking Box - YouTube
I used two pieces of the 'Black & White Design Designer Series Paper' for my holder.  Each piece measures 6-1/2" x 7".  I scored with the 7" across the top at 1/2" and turned it to score on the 6-1/2" side at 1-3/4" and 4-34".
Here's how the two pieces looked after scoring and assembling them.
I did use the 1-1/2" Circle Punch to crop out my "Pop Open" section.
And used the 'Best Witches' set to create my sentiment piece.
The way this gift works is you slide the inner wrapper into the outer wrapper......
And your sentiment circle from the inside will POP into place when it meets the outer circle.
And here is how the slider will look when closed.
I used the 'Best Witches' set to stamp my ADORABLE little Witch.  All it took was fussy cutting her out and popping her onto the from of my slider.
I did add both the 'Black and White Gingham Ribbon' along with the 'Metallic Mesh Ribbon' around both ends of my slider to add some SPOOKY FUN to this project.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Wine Down Wednesday card with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Best Witches Upgrade

 Happy Monday My Blogger Friends! 
Today is Mix-It-UP! Monday, and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ..... But I added a couple additional products found in the 2022-2023 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spotlight Sunday card from yesterday on the TOP....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday upgraded card for today on the BOTTOM....
The first upgrade I made to my card for today was changing up the orientation from a Portrait style card to a Landscape style card ...... And I also changed my base card from a White card to a Parakeet Party base card.
I added a Black cardstock panel to the front of my base card and topped it off with a White cardstock panel.  I used the 'Brick and Mortar Embossing Folder' to add some fun texture to that panel.  And to add some SPOOKY FUN to that piece ..... I sponged around the edges before adhering it down. 
Next, I added a panel of Black cardstocked topped off with a panel of Parakeet Party cardstock.  Before I adhered that panel down to the center of my card ..... I wrapped some 'Parakeet Party Ribbon' around that panel and tied it into a pretty bow on the right-hand side.
My witch was stamped onto a 'Stylish Shapes Dies' piece and that was from the 'Best Witches' set.  I also created a CUTE banner flag with that same set ..... And I used the same dies and stamp set to create that sentiment piece.
The finishing touch for this upgraded card was adding three 'Glossy Dot Assortments' around the front of my card ...... And calling this upgrade DONE!!!!

So, tell me what you think......
Do you have a favorite????

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday creation with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Best Witches

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2022 Stampin' UP! Mini Catalog.  This card uses several products from that new catalog ........ And I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today..........
I started my card off with a White base card.
Next, I used a panel of Black cardstock and topped it off with a panel of Parrakeet Party cardstock.  I adhered that panel down the center of my base card.
I used the 'Best Witches' set to stamp my sentiment onto a 'Stylish Shapes Dies' banner flag piece.  And I adhered that down to a small circle I cropped out with my 'Layering Circles Dies'.  I positioned that piece into the lower right corner of my card.
My DARLING little witch was stamped from the same set ...... And I used the 'Stylish Shapes Dies' to crop her out.  I matted her to a Black frame.
I used my Stampin' Blends to color this little cutie in......
And finished this card off with some 'Glossy Dots Assortments'.
What do you think my friends......
Isn't she just the CUTIEST!!!!!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share an upgraded version of this very card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
