Cup of Hugs

I am sharing almost the entire suite of the Heartwarming Hugs Suite of products in today’s project.  I have 3D, stamping, wrapping, tag making and cuteness!

 

 

Not only are these products adorable, but they are very quick to make.  I see these as great Hostess, Neighbor, Teacher, Co-worker, or just a Friend gift.  The carrier comes in a pack of 8, as do the coffee cups and lids.  The cups are the equivalent of a small coffee at a coffee shop or drive thru.  So they hold quite a bit of goodness.  Here is a view of one I filled with fun items.

 

 

I filled it with things I had on hand.  I added a gift card, a hand sanitizer from Bath and Body (so you know the size), and 3 Merci Chocolates.  I envision having one hold these type items and the other maybe coffee or hot chocolate.  I believe that would be a great pairing.  Or they both could hold drink materials.

Here is a picture of the two cups.  I sacrificed one cup to get the band measurements and it worked with some minor trimming after being secured around the cup.  The little “wrap” is a die in the Bundle, as are the decorations.

All of the round sentiments are from the Warm Hugs stamp set.  There are a couple of different dies to cut them.  I added the tag to the carrier by using the Fancy Tag Punch and the Real Red Braided Trim.  The little added bow is the Mossy Meadow Diagonal Striped Ribbon.  And since you have seen it several times lately since I LOVE it!!!!!, the DSP is the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I hope this gives you some great gift ideas to fill these cute cups with.

A Frosty Oops !

I love the stamp set Don’t Stop Believin’ and have used two of the three images previously.  You can see those HERE and HERE.  So today I am sharing the third image.  They are all adorable and it is hard to choose a favorite.  Maybe you can help me with which one you think is the best one.

 

 

The hot chocolate was Frosty’s downfall!  I wanted Frosty to be the focal point so he is backed with some Foil.   I backed the sentiment the same.

This is a really quick card to put together.  The Whisper White layer is embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I really LOVE this folder!!  The strip of DSP is from Brightly Gleaming and was a leftover from another card.  So that was a perfect find.  I tend to have a lot of layers, and even though there are layers here, this card seems a bit more “clean” looking.  Maybe it is all of the whisper white.

For inishing touches I added the bow, which is the Misty Moonlight ribbon.  And  the Bronze Star that is a carryover from last year.  Or Returning may be a better word.

Thank you for stopping in today!  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.  Also, we are about half way through September, where has the time gone?????, but that also means we are halfway through the time you have to consider the Starter Kit Promotion.  All of the details are listed just below.  I would love to have you join my team of stampers.

Light Me Home

The Light Me Home set is such a classic winter scene that I knew I had to have it.  Then trying to design the card was a bit more troublesome.  When I saw the current Global Design Project Color Challenge, it made me immediately think of this set. And I had been asked about a Skinny card for a class I have coming up.  My idea for using the color challenge on the sky fit perfectly for a tall and skinny card.  This way I have a lot more sky to play with.

 

 

The Global Design Project Challenge is a Color Challenge.   #GDP267

I really love these colors and they fit perfectly for the sky with my Light Me Home stamp.  I sponged all three colors beginning with the Balmy Blue at the top.  I overlapped each one just a bit.  I also stamped the image in Misty Moonlight.

I could have added more color to the stamped area, but decided I liked the “snowy” look with the beautiful sky above. It did need a bit of Something else.  So I added a few snowflakes in Balmy Blue to the night sky.  The snowflakes are from the Flight of Fancy stamp set.

The sentiment is from the stamp Light Me Home set also.  I stamped it with Highland Heather on the Balmy Blue card stock.  The layers are die cut using the Layering Circles.  I added a single Pearl for a touch of glimmer and as an acknowledgement of the snow.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Please return tomorrow for  Pals September Blog Hop.

Holly Christmas

I have a #simplestamping card to share with you today.  There is no fancy designer paper, just stamps, ink, paper and a punch.  Although I did add Stampin’ Blends for coloring.

 

Something I did not mention is that in addition to being a #simplestamping card, this is also a one stamp set card.  I cannot say it is a bundle however.  The stamp set is the Christmas Gleaming set that was a bundle last year with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.  It all came back this year as one of Stampin’ Up!’s Returning Favorites sets.  Sadly it is not still a bundle so no 10% discount.   But I will say it is still definitely worth the price.

I used a bit of a different color combination for today’s card.  I used Old Olive, a forever favorite green, but paired it with Poppy Parade.  It is still a red, just a sort of orangy red!  I do love how the two look together though.

The holly is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored using both of the Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.  I then stamped the ornament on the card, as well as on scrap paper.  I went ahead and colored both.  I always do that.  The ornament is stamped in Poppy Parade Ink and colored using the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  The crown of the ornament is colored with Poppy Parade blends.  The ornament is attched using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The finishing touches are the bow and the Merry Christmas.  I stamped the Merry Christmas and then used my Paper Snips to cut it down.  Since they are straight lines, it is not a difficult cut.  The bow is from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Pack.  It is attached using a glue dot.

Thank you for stopping in on your Monday.  I hope you have a great week ahead and will come back tomorrow for another new project.

Gift Wrapped Lever Card

Last week I shared a lever card I made using the Prized Peony stamp set.  Today I am sharing the same card but with a Christmas Theme.  I have included a PDF and a video.  If you are looking at this on your phone or tablet, you will need to click on the place I have highlighted.  I haven’t quite mastered the video, editing, and all that goes with that part!  So here is the Christmas card.

 

 

I love the various bows in the Gift Wrapped Bundle.  It is hard to choose which one to use.  The companion punch is awesome and fits the various bows.  For right now, as I tend to not put inside sentiments until I am ready to send a card, the bow is the only stamping on this card!

The DSP is my favorite of the Christmas paper.  It is the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.  I am sure you have figured that out since I use it quite often!  Sorry about that.  I have already used one pack of the paper.

The card is very simple to put together.  However there are several layers!  I had made this card for a class and changed it up for my Stamp Club last month.  In doing that, I created a PDF.  So just click on the link below to get the pdf.

As I said, I made a video for this card as well.  It is quite easy to build, but sometimes seeing it is what I need.  And again, if you are on your phone or tablet , or are looking from the email subscription you may not see the video.  But if you go to my blog it will show there.

Here is the Video :

Tinsel In A Tangle

Today’s card is one I made for a swap with some of my Stampin’ Up! fellow demonstrators.  We couldn’t do a weekend together due to covid, so did a swap to at least have a bit of sharing.

 

 

The stamp set is the Don’t Stop Believin’ set.  I adore all of the stamps in this set.  It also has the large Santa stamp that I have used previously.  I think we all can relate to the tangled lights and tinsel!!

For the background I wanted to use the Tis The Season Designer Series Paper.  It went best with the colors I invisioned for the elf.  The downside is that it is 6X6 paper.  I love 6X6 paper, but it limits your usage when doing multiples.  To solve this problem, I cut strips from some of the ones I felt best went together and layered them on some Whisper White.  Then all I had to do was flip it over and cut off the excess.  I love this technique of paper piecing.  It’s by far the easiest one for me.

I stamped the elf with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is stamped in the Memento Ink as well.  I just realized that I took this photo before I decided it needed a bit more bling!  To achieve that bit of bling, I added a green from the Holiday Rhinestones just to the left of the sentiment.  I only added the one and it was perfect.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I greatly appreciate you checking my cards and I love to read your comments.    I found on Friday that anyone reaching out to me from my blog using the Contact Me button, was going to spam!  If you were one of those people, I am SO SORRY!!!!  It is fixed now, and hopefully will never be repeated!
