3 Tree Christmas Wishes Tag

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........
 
I'm just CRAZY about the way this tag turned out.
 
I started out with a Whisper White tag and stamped my sentiment at the top …… Using the 'Banner Year' set and Real Red ink.
 
My three trees were cropped out using the 'Stitched Triangles Dies' and my FAVORITE holiday paper …….. 'Heartwarming Hugs'.
 
I sprinkled some 'Snowflake Embellishments' around the front of my tag …… And topped each tree off with a single gold 'Metallic Pearl'.
 
The finishing touch for my tag was adding some 'Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Ribbon' and topping it off with a pretty bow using the 'Metallic Gold Ribbon'.
 
So what do you think my friends???
Don't you agree with me that this is a Great tag????

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!

Happy Wishes

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........
 
I was hanging out on Pinterest the other day and literally stumbled onto this card.  OH MY GOSH ..... I just had to give it a try.  It's my version of a card shared by Cindy Elam ...… I basically used the layout and set off to use some of the new product from the 2020 Stampin' UP! Mini Catalog.
 
I started out with a Whisper White base card …… And added a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  I ran a 4-1/2" x 2-1/2" panel of Whisper White card stock through my Embossing Machine using the 'Subtles Embossing Folder'.   Next, I gave that Whisper White panel a 1/4" embossed edge ..... Using my 'Simply Score Board'.
 
After I had that panel all embossed ….. I used the 'Tree Angle' set and stamped my sentiment at the bottom.  I used Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp that sentiment.
 
Before I adhered that panel to the front of my card …. I wrapped some copper ribbon from the 'Basket weave Metallic Ribbon Pack' ...… And positioned that ribbon right above my stamped sentiment.
 
My three trees were stamped from the 'Tree Angle' set and I used the coordinating 'The Right Triangle Dies' to crop each of those tree out.
 
I finished off each tree with a copper star from the 'Happy Dies' set.
 
And that's all it took my friends to create this fun Holiday card.

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!

Snowflake Rectangle Tin

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is 'CASE IT TUESDAY'.  That means today I have a fun little 3-D project that I found on the internet ....... And I created a CASE of that project to share with you today.  This project was SUPER FUN to create and I want to jump right in and share that project with you now.
 
The inspiration for my 3D project for today comes directly from the new Stampin' UP! Mini Catalog.
These ADORABLE tins can be found on page 55 of the 2020 Mini Catalog ..... And that is the page that inspired me for my CASE for today.
 
I used one of the 'Rectangle Tins' and wrapped it with the 'Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper'.
 
Next, I wrapped some 'Misty Moonlight Ribbon' around the DSP and tied it up into a pretty bow.  Then......I added a couple 'Glitter Star Ornaments' that hung under the ribbon.
 
I created the DSP Belly Band so it just slid right off the tin...….
 
And on the inside I created a dozen little gift tags.
 
I used the same 'Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper' and used the 'Festive Post' set to stamp my To/From sentiment.
 
One of the finishing touches I added to each little gift tag was adding a 'Iridescent Pearl' to the top of each tag.
 
And on the front of my tin ……. I created a cute little To/From tag for the top.
 
Just couldn't be happier with the way this project turned out.

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!

Hip Hip Hooray 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 an additional product to bring this card up to the next stamping level.

 
Here is my Spot Light Sunday card from yesterday on the LEFT.....
And my Mix-It-UP! Monday upgraded card for today on the RIGHT.....
 
The first upgrade I made was to create a FUN fold for my card.
 
I use a Whisper White base card and then added a Z-Fold Calypso Coral panel to the front.  My Calypso Coral card stock piece measures 10-1/4" x 4" …… And I scored that piece at 2-1/2" and 5".
 
On the inside Calypso Coral card stock piece I added a panel of the 'Playing With Pattern Designer Series Paper'.....
 
And also added a panel of that same DSP to the bottom section of the Calypso Coral card stock piece.
I used the same 'Best Year' set for this upgraded card ..... And I layered it with several pieces from the 'Tasteful Labels Die' set.
 
Three 'Small Bloom Punch' flowers were added to the sentiment piece ……. And this card was done in no time flat.
So tell me friends...….
Which is your 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!

Hip Hip Hooray

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends
Today is Spotlight Sunday ....... And I have a card I created using product from the 2020-2021 Stampin' UP! Annual 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..........
 
Check out this quick & easy card I made.
 
I used a Calypso Coral base card and added a panel of the 'Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper' to the front.
Next, I stamped my sentiment from the 'Best Year' set onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I used the 'Tasteful Labels Dies' to crop that sentiment out ……. And then added it to a panel of Calypso Coral card stock.
 
I grabbed the 'Small Bloom Punch' and cropped out three little flowers ……. And arranged those around the outer edge of my sentiment panel.
 
And that's all it took to create this darling little card.

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!

Jar Gift Card

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And I would like to share with you the project I created using the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
 
For this card project ....... I made a charming gift card holder.
     
All I did was create a opening at the top of my jar image and that allowed me to create the perfect spot to add a gift card to this project. 
 
The card was made with all the pieces included in this kit.  The only additional product I added was the base card stock that my jar was adhered to.
 
I also used 'Silver Embossing Powder' for my sentiment ........ And that really added a touch of pretty that I was looking to add to this card.
 
My little fireflies were added behind the vellum jar ...... And I finished off my jar by adding some 'Flowers For Every Season' Misty Moonlight Twine around the top.
 And that's all it took to create this fun little card.

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