Christmas is Coming ICS Blog Hop

Welcome to another blog hop with the Inspire, Create, & Share crew! We are a group of global independent demonstrators with Stampin’ Up!®️ that love to Inspire, Create, and Share projects with you! This month’s theme is Christmas is Coming and we were tasked with creating a 3D Christmas Gift Idea. I decided to show off how to package a Christmas gift using some amazing products!

My name is Melissa Tennison, and I’d love to tell you about my project today!

I’ve taken our Mini Pizza Box and turned it into the perfect packaging for a small gift such as homemade treats, jewelry or gift cards. I’ve also made a coordinating card to go with our fun little gift box. I’m calling this Rose Gold because of all the shades of glittery, glorious pink and sparkly-ness!

I found my pinspiration for this card from Melissa Stout of The Stamp Doc. Her card was so beautiful, I wanted to make one of my own! I used the Rose Glimmer Paper, and Berry Burst and Smoky Slate for my color scheme. I love using gray as a neutral, and often pair it with bold colors to really make them stand out. I’ve also thrown in a little bit of Champagne Foil to give the border a little bling.

The snowflakes were created using the Blizzard thinlit die. It cuts out SOOOO many snowflakes all at one time! It’s amazing for making a lot of blizzard cards. I added some rhinestones to the centers of my snowflakes, as well as around them. This is one of my favorite holiday cards this year!

For my Mini Pizza Box, I made a belly band out of the Champagne Foil, tied some ribbon around it, and then added some Rose Metallic thread and a snowflake to the top. I scattered a few more snowflakes and sequins on the box, and my packaging was done! It was that quick! Check out my video below to see some awesome tips and tricks for both of these projects!

March Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the first ever Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful blog hop featuring alternate projects for the March 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit by Stampin’ Up! There are some amazing projects featured by very talented demonstrators, so please be sure to scroll down to the next button to check out all of the other blogs!

I love the shabby-chic vibes I got when putting this kit together. The suggested projects for this kit are beautiful all on their own, but I really like trying to create alternate cards using only the contents of the kit. Scroll down to see a time-lapse video of how I put this card together using one of the envelopes from the kit.

I love that this kit included brads! I love hardware on my cards, and have been missing brads and eyelets. I decided to use two brads on the label because I think it gives this card an extra “oomph”. I cut off the scalloped edge of the flap and used the Crumb Cake side as an accent on the front of my card. I also cut out the two roses from the Flower Seeds packet envelope and paired them with the green die cut leaves. I added a few of the Fresh Fig pearl embellishments and tied some ribbon around the scalloped flap piece.

I love the colors on this card, and how easy it was to put together. Dimensionals are definitely one of my favorite adhesives, and I was so glad Stampin’ Up! added a HUGE sheet of them in this month’s kit, because I doubled up a lot to get several layers on this card.

Your support means a lot to me and helps me to continue doing what I love, which is making videos for you to enjoy.
