Give Thanks Box and Product Preview

Before I share today's project, I wanted to share some exciting news about a new product that will be coming soon from Stampin' Up! called the Stamparatus.  The video below will explain all the details!  

You can reserve yours starting November 16th!

Today's project is along the same lines as yesterday's cards although I chose to use one of our retired boxes with an acetate sleeve.  I first covered the box and lid with Painted Autumn designer series paper and put the acetate sleeve over the top.

Some cotton ribbon went around the acetate sleeve to break up the designer series paper pattern a little bit.  Then, I did my stamping and punching and added those elements with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Painted Autumn

For these cards, I played around with a couple different things using the same layout and colors.  The Pumpkin Pie background is embossed with the Polka Dot Basics folder and then I added some Painted Autumn designer series paper on one side.

Next, I stamped the leaves and cut them out with the paper snips before attaching them.  For the card on the left, I used the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and used my Stampin' Blends to color in the flower.  On the right, I used the Painted Harvest stamp set and Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach and Soft Suede ink.

Night in Bethlehem

The combination of the Bethlehem edgelits dies and the foil sheets is one I really like to play with.  For this card I chose a background of Night of Navy card stock that was embossed with the Softly falling embossing folder.  Next, I cut out my edgelits from some Champagne foil sheets and layered them on the front.  

On the inside of the card, I used the Star of Light stamp set and added a sentiment and some background stars.

Happy Birthday Cup

I always love the patterns in the Coffee Break designer series paper and wanted to use this one on a few birthday cards.  The cup itself is also a pattern in the same designer series paper package...

My sentiment comes from the Big on Birthdays stamp set and I used Early Espresso ink for all the stamping.  This is a card that goes together quickly if you want to do multiples, I just get all the pieces ready first and then put them together.

November Stamp Club Projects

I am a little slow in sharing the Stamp Club projects this month!  This time I chose to do a couple Christmas cards and a layout that could be used for many different occasions.

The first card pairs the Be of Good Cheer specialty paper with the Season Like Christmas stamp set.

For the second card, we used the Winter Wonder embossing folder, Stitched shapes framelits, metallic thread and Every Good Wish stamp set.

Finally, on the layout we used Fresh Florals designer series paper and a few punched pieces for accents.

Remember, we always have room for more if you would like to join either the monthly stamp club or virtual (every other month) club!  Contact me here for more details!

Chocolate Around the World

Since I shared one of these little chocolate treats yesterday I thought I would share the other one right away.  For this tin, I used the Christmas around the world designer series paper and one of the matching embellishments.

In addition to that, I still have some leftover pieces from the Be Merry kit and used a tulle circle and some ribbon as decoration.  There is also a piece of Basic Black card stock punched with the Starburst punch behind the tulle.

Tidings of Joy

As I was trying to start preparing for a weekend retreat, I ran across a few tins in my stash that I had leftover from a few years ago and decided to put together a few Hershey's chocolate gifts.  This one uses some pieces from the September Paper Pumpkin kit as decorations.  

I used some Merry Little Christmas designer series paper to wrap the chocolate and some Merry Music specialty paper to wrap a belly band around the tin.  The French horn is die cut using the Musical instruments thinlits.
