Today I wanted to share one of my favorite bundles in the Holiday Catalog, the Christmas Gleaming Bundle! It comes with TWO punches and a fabulous coordinating stamp set. Stampin Up didn’t stop with the bundle, they added even more to this bundle and made it a whole SUITE! And you know what that means, we got coordinating ribbon, embellishments and DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!!!
I created 3 cards with this Suite that I want to share with you. All 3 cards feature the same layout and each packs a different wow.
This card features Night of Navy as its primary color and I added some copper embellishments from the Suite for some extra pizzazz.
For the second card, I used Mossy Meadow and flipped the card vertically. I used more of the copper embellishments to really make the copper in the designer paper pop.
This card highlights one of our new In-colors, Pretty Peacock. I let the pattern in the designer paper do all the work for this one. I punched out a small ornament from some copper foil paper and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Tufted 3D embossing folder. It just gives it that extra little touch don’t ya think?
For detailed instructions on how to make these cards, watch my video here:
All 3 card bases: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ – scored at 4 1/4″ (Card Base)

Dont forget, Stampin Up is still offering it’s Buy 3 Get 1 Free Promotion on certain packages of Designer Series Paper! So this week, I wanted to focus on some things you can do with our Designer Series Paper!
On this week’s Facebook Live, I showed you how to make a gift bag with our Designer Paper that is sized perfectly for Bath & Body Works’ Hand Sanitizers ~ and any other gift you’d like to put in them. As promised, I am posting the template with the measurements I used and supplies so you can duplicate the bag also.
So here is my template:
To see the full instructions on how to make this adorable bag, view my video here:

** Note that I used the coordinating dies to cut out the Magnolia Embellishment, but you can also use Paper Snips!
** I also used our retired paper trimmer to do my scoring on, but you can use any measuring surface.
… are ya scared yet? No? Then check out my little green monster!
On Tuesday’s Facebook Live, I showed how to make two cards. I posted the second card of the video yesterday, so I am posting the first card today. I elected to do a Halloween card using some bright Designer Paper… that makes my little monster-man not-so-scary.
How bout now? Still not scared?
Well, I’m so glad you’re not scared! I think he’s so cute that I want to take him trick or treating! Since he doesn’t scare you, then my video on how to make this card wont scare you either, so go check it out! I promise, it wont give you nightmares!

I used the Snowman Seasons Stamp Set with some coordinating products. You can purchase the stamp set, coordinating Snowman Builder Punch, and some awesome goodies and embellishments with a single item code… how cool is that?! No worries about forgetting to add something in. Stampin Up thought of everything with this product suite…
For me, I love any stamp set that inspires coloring and bling… so this set quickly went to the top of my list! The bling really does not show up well in the picture, but watch my video below for full instructions and a better view of the sparkle on this card!
Check out my video on YouTube for full instructions. This card is the second one featured in the video, and the first one is a cute card featuring the Boo to You Stamp Set (Details for that card coming in a post soon).

For this month’s NC Demo Blog Hop, we were tasked with finding a picture of flowers that inspire us! I chose a picture I took of my gifts I received from my work team a couple of months ago… they really do appreciate me! (But not as much as I appreciate them). I received flowers and chocolates!!!
So, I came home and started going through my Pressed Petals Designer Paper and created this card:
This paper packs such a wow on its own that it needs very little added to it. I just heat embossed my sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set in Copper and layered it on some copper foil.
Then I used the Pressed Petals Washi Tape to create my flower. Tip: rub your embossing buddy on the tips of the Washi Petals so they don’t stick to your card. That will help keep your Petals raised up.

Now I encourage you to continue to be inspired by the other wonderful creations featured in this month’s blog hop!
For my inaugural Facebook Live video this week, I featured the adorable Back on Your Feet Stamp Set. I demonstrated how to make two cards, both using the Watercolor Pencils to enhance my images.
(Sorry about the technical glitches in the video — it was my first!)
You can view my video here:
The first card is a single layer. I used Wink of Stella to activate the pencils and double as as an embellished, shimmery effect on my little sloth.
For the second card, I added a couple of elements to the card and some additional techniques using the colored pencils… Dont tell the sloth, but I think the turtle is my favorite 😉
Check out my next Facebook video for some more awesome stamping ideas this Monday, August 26th at 7:30PM EST. You can also follow my Facebook Page to get notified when new videos and items are posted!
