Festive Decorations Stampin’ Up! Style

Happy Sunday Stampers! 

Today I am sharing an easy candle decoration created with Stampin’ Up! Products. 

Last year I purchased some battery-operated candles from Ikea. They are a nice red for the holiday, but very plain. I decided to dress them up using the Christmastime is Here designer series paper and a few other products.

I used a lot of gold elements because the rose image is created with gold outlines. Bling is always a good thing.

The great thing about battery candles is you can add paper decorations without the fear of fire. You can also change the decorations next year if you want to try something different.

The Christmastime is Here Suite is so beautiful, I had to throw a card into this post. The designer series paper makes your card making easy. People will be impressed!

Christmastime is Here

Last week Stampin’ Up! released a limited time only Christmas Suite – “Christmastime is Here.” It is a glorious stamp set that works for Christmas and other occasions.

When I first saw this suite I did not think it was my style, but the more I stamp with it the more I have come to love it! Funny how that works.

This card uses the country Floral 3D embossing Folder. I though it was a nice complement to the roses in the Designer Series Paper. Nice and easy card, which makes me happy.

I will share several projects over the next week or so just to entice you to order this stamp set before it is gone. It is while supplies last. Shop HERE to get the beautiful set.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins

I have another geeky post for you guys. I so love the Library Challenge page. As a former librarian it tickles my fancy and warms my heart. A perfect for challenge me. This week is Reader’s Choice which means I get to choose one of my favorite books-Mr. Popper’s Penguins. Sweet!

reader's choice librarian challenge

When I was a first-grade teacher we would read “chapter books” to our students to encourage them to start reading them for themselves. One perennial favorite was Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater. This creative and hilarious story has entertained children for years. It sparks their imagination and encourages them to have big dreams and adventures.

Here is the cover of Mr. Popper’s Penguins:

Perfectly Plaid for a Swap

Saturday was our Demonstrator Shoebox Swap event. It was much fun and we all walked away with card ideas to share with our customers. I will be sharing samples here over the next few weeks.

First my card:

Perfectly Plaid ginny harrell stampin' up

I chose to use the Perfectly Plaid Bundle of products. A good punch is a marvel in my opinion. Punches are easy & versatile. 

The Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper has subtle gold threads running through the plaid. Just enough bling to make it sparkle.

Tip: Using the Gold Foil Edge Card Bases & Envelopes makes these cards extra easy. Don’t forget to order the silver & gold cards. They are very reasonably priced!

gold and silver note cards

I have a very simple tutorial for this card. You may download HERE.

Lots of Cheer for TGIF Challenge

It is Christmas in July. Did you know that? It seems even though it is really hot, our minds are turning toward the holidays. TGIFC #221 was just what I needed to get inspired for the upcoming holiday. 155 days in case you are wondering.

TGIFC

I chose to go with some non-traditional colors for my card. Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green are some of my favorite colors ever, so picking them for Christmas is a no-brainer.  This snowman is so cute. It would be fun to find some boxes and make a 3D snowman to sit on the fireplace hearth.

I love the way this turned out.
