Be Merry Kit - Stampin' Up!

The Be Merry Kit (found on page 32 of the holiday catalogue) is definitely fun, easy and super cute!  The kit is $25.50.  Also needed are a hot glue gun, dimensionals and Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I did iron the ribbon to get the fold creases out of them. 

The kit makes 12 ornaments; 6 each of the green and red.  It is a miserable, rainy day here today so taking photos was a challenge.  Otherewise, I would have taken photos of all 12 completed ornaments.


If you are looking for a great craft project, I certainly recommend this Be Merry Kit.  No stamping involved!!

Thanks for stopping by!

From Stampin' Up! - 7 years


Received this sweet card from Stampin' Up! Canada in the mail at the end of August.  It is always special to receive a hand made card in the mail and so nice of Stampin' Up! Canada to remember their demonstrators!

I did take a flip through the catalogue to see if I could find the name of the stamp set and DSP used but didn't find it.  Products I did recognize are:

Vintage Crochet Trim (new holiday catalogue)
Stitched Shaped Framelits
Layered Leaves Embossing Folder
Gold Foil Sheets
Gold Metallic Thread

Thanks for Dale and the rest of the team for taking the time to remember demonstrators!

Watercolor Christmas Project Kit - Stampin' Up! - 4th card

Here is the 4th and final card in the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit found on page 34 of the holiday catalogue.  The coloured images are printed on the card base, ready for you to add accent pieces to complete your card.  Although it does not show in the picture, I added Wink of Stella to all of the vine leaves and used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to all of the berries.  It adds such a sweet finish to the card!  


The kit includes enough envelope liners for all 20 cards.  These liners are quite thick.  With the image on the top left, I just used a bone folder to crease the liner.  It left it a little crinkled so with the one on the right I used the scoring board to make my crease.  It had a better finish.  I will use the liners for four of the cards, but think I will save the rest up for alternative ideas!  That is one of the fun parts about kits.  You don't have to do it all as outlined!


Here are all the pieces you use with the kit, complete with pictorial instructions.

There is something in the catalogue for everyone; beginner to experienced; stop by and visit my store at:

Watercolor Christmas Project Kit - Stampin' Up! - Card 3

Third of the designs for the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit on page 34 of the holiday catalogue.  Fine Tip Glue was used to glue on the sequins and holly pieces.  Wink of Stella was painted on the holly leaves and it has a lovely shimmer in real life.  The Fine Tip Glue was used on the holly berries and adds a little shine and dimensions.   


I'm hoping you can at least see the shine on the berries from this angle.  Well worth the time waiting for the berries to dry.

If you are just starting out, card kits are certainly a wonderful way to give card making/stamping a try!

Tomorrow is the 4th and final card in this kit.

Watercolor Christmas Project Kit - Stampin' Up! - Card 2


This one of the four designs in the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit.  If you don't have a lot of supplies, kits are the way to go.  They are simple enough and not overwhelming.  Additional supplies were the Watercolor Christmas stamp set (shown below), dimensionals, fine tip glue pen, Basic Black in pad.  I also used Fast Fuse tape runner and Wink of Stella.


This card came with the white panel of coloured trees already on the paper.   I added some Wink of Stella to each tree and it gives and nice shimmer to the trees.  I tried to get photos but the lovely shimmer just didn't show up.  

Here is the wood mount version of this stamp set.  It is also available in clear (meaning, you put the stamp on a clear block for stamping).

Next post will show the 3rd design in this project kit.

Layered Leaves - Paper Pumpkin - Sept. '17

Hooray for September's Paper Pumpkin...it is gorgeous!

Here are the two projects that can be created with Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin kit.  It can make 8 pillow boxes and 8 gift cards/envelopes.  Aren't they pretty?!!  I have only made one sample of each because I want to wait and see what others make as alternatives to the original design.  It really is fun to see all the creativity out there!


The card based is embossed with a swirly design which you can faintly see in the photo.  I stamped the envelope with the leaf stamp (stamp set included in the kit)


This sweet pillow box is large enough to fill with small treats, a gift card or gift.  The top of the box is also embossed with a swirly design.  Card stock is nice and sturdy.

So, I started by stamping all the leaves.  However, I was not as successful as those I have watched on YouTube!  The top left show my success...the bottom left shows how my stamping was off with too much border on the right side of the leaf and none on the left.  So to rectify this, I trimmed those down as you can see in those on the right.  In the end it was all good...none ruined and I was happy.  Those that were trimmed down got sponged to soften the look of th edge.

Before I started, I separated all the kit contents.  Here is everything that is in the kit.  Ink spot missing from photo.

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit offered through a subscription.  Contact me for more details

Here's another using the Flower Flair Framelits as a stencil.  These are basic shapes applied to the Hardwood Background stamp.  Rhinestones and a circle punched from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper add some visual interest to the centre of the flowers.  So easy!  Sentiment is from Watercolor Words.

Leaflets Framelits - Watercolor Words - Stampin' Up!


Here's a lovely fall(ish) card that will get more use out of your thinlits.  I made a template with the vellum card stock and the maple left from the Leaflets Framelits (page193) and sponged on crushed curry, calypso coral and rich razzleberry.  Use any of the sentiments from Watercolor Words (page 135); they're all great!.  I used strands of burlap from the burlap ribbon for a cute bow.

Any framelit can be made into a fun, quick card.  The possibilities are endless.  I'll have more samples soon.
