SBTD ~ Oct Blog Hop Holiday Gifts

Welcome to the October Stampers By The Dozen blog hop.

I am featuring the Poinsettia Petals Bundle, which I used to make a lovely ornament you could use as a gift or just simply a beautiful home decor piece.

Triple layer poinsettia

In this first photo I used all three layers of the poinsettia to create a full flower with three leaves and a little piece of gold berries. I made two complete sets of this flower so that no matter which way it turned it looked just like this. I used dimensionals and glue dots to hold it together. The ribbon looped through the middle is our Gold Metallic ribbon with Gold Metallic Pearls to create the center. To give the leave “a lift” I used my you pick tool with the large stylus end. By running your stylus along the vein of the petals or leaves, you cause your cardstock to “lift”.

Here is another one I made with just the two smaller sets of petals.

Double Poinsettia with Gold Hoop

This ornament I made the same way as the first with just two of the smaller petals and added one of the Gold Hoops. I just love how these are coming out and what wonderful gifts they will make. I wish you could see them in person. For a little shine, you may want to put a little wink of stella on the leaves. Another idea would be to edge each of the petals with versa mark and emboss with gold emobossing powder.

The middle before any “hiding” techniques

This shot is of the center of the ornament before coming up with ideas to hide this. A couple of things you can do to hide the dimensionals are, one color the edges of the dimensional with a marker the same color as you cardstock. Or two, you could use glue dots to adhere the tips of the front and back petals to close this gap between layers. I think either way looks finished.

The ideas and color variations are endless. Give this project a try and please show me what you have created. I hope I have inspired you to use the Poinsettia Petals bundle.

Let’s see what’s up next for you.

Dove of Hope bundle

Dove of Hope bundle step up cards

Hi! Today features the Dove of Hope bundle. I will show you three cards, each one stepped up a little from the last. I love all three and glad that I don’t have to choose because it is so easy to make them all with just a few items. Some of which you may already have. Let’s take a look at the first card I made withe the Dove of Hope bundle.

Simple stamping with this version

This is the first card I made with the Dove of Hope bundle. It is a thick white card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″), cherry cobbler layer (5 1/4″ X 4″) and a third whisper white layer (4 3/4″ X 3 1/2″). The wing is cut from whisper white cardstock using the Detailed Dove dies. The body is a die also from the Detailed Dove dies.The words Peace * Joy * Love are stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and are from the Dove of Hope stamp set. Inside I stamped “May your season be filled with all the wonder and blessings of Christmas” also from the Dove of Hope stamp set. I have a 2″ X 4″ piece of Plaid Tidings designer paper. I used a gold metallic pearl for the eye.

Slightly stepped up version

This is the second card I made with the Dove of Hope bundle. It is a thick white card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″), cherry cobbler layer (5 1/4″ X 4″) and a third whisper white layer (4 3/4″ X 3 1/2″). The wing is cut from whisper white cardstock using the Detailed Dove dies. The body is a die also from the Detailed Dove dies. I added the little fern from the Detailed Dove dies cut from gold foil. The words Peace * Joy * Love are stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and are from the Dove of Hope stamp set. Inside I stamped “May your season be filled with all the wonder and blessings of Christmas” also from the Dove of Hope stamp set. I have a 2″ X 4″ piece of Plaid Tidings designer paper. I used a gold metallic pearl for the eye.

The third version of this card

This is the third card I made with the Dove of Hope bundle. It is a thick white card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″), cherry cobbler layer (5 1/4″ X 4″) and a third whisper white layer (4 3/4″ X 3 1/2″). The whisper white layer I embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder to give it texture. The wing is cut from gold foil using the Detailed Dove dies. The body is also in gold foil using the Detailed Dove dies. I added the little fern from the Detailed Dove dies cut from gold foil and a second from some Cherry Cobbler scrap. The words Peace * Joy * Love are stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and are from the Dove of Hope stamp set. Inside I stamped “May your season be filled with all the wonder and blessings of Christmas” also from the Dove of Hope stamp set.

SBTD Are Celebrating 3 Years Together

A big congratulations to the Stampers By The Dozen blog hop members, celebrating 3 years! I have only been a member for a short time, but just love seeing what everyone shares each month.

For this months card, Thinking of You, I have chosen a Christmas card using Winter Woods and A Wish For Everything stamp sets. These are two of my favorites and they get used quite often.

Thinking of you this season
The inside

The card base is Mossy Meadow card stock and I also used Very Vanilla card stock, gold foil sheets. I just love the way the Evergreen Forest 3 D embossing folder shows up on the gold foil. So much detail shows up with just a quick run through the cut & emboss machine. The embellishments are red rhinestones and Real Red sheer ribbon. I used the Timeless label punch (a gift at On Stage one year) and the In The Woods dies. Please be sure to contact me if you would like more information. This just might be my personal Christmas card this year, but who knows, it is still early. It is important to me to let friends, family and customers know I am thinking of you.

Again, a huge congratulations to the Stampers By The Dozen members celebrating three years. Click here if you want to check out last months blog hop.

SBTD ~ Seabed 3D Embossing Folder

Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and Whale Done stamp set

Using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder again as a background, I was able to enhance the little underwater scene. I covered this scene with painted window sheet. Check out my Facebook live and YouTube channel to see how I made it.

SBTD ~ Basket of Blooms

Basket of Blooms

Basket of Blooms is a wonderful new set in the 2020-2021 Stampin’Up! catalog. So happy it coordinates with the Small Bloom punch. I have listed the supplies I used below. This is just a little sampling of the potential this set has. I think you would find many uses for the Basket of Blooms stamp set.

SBTD ~ Saying Good-Bye to Flourishing Phrases

SBTD May blog hop

Flourishing Phrases stamp set (141534) has been a go to set for me almost since we first got it. This is a double set that is great for notes, sympathy, wedding and congratulations due to the wonderful collection of phrases. I truly can’t tell you how many cards I have made with the dies that go with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Look who’s next!

A little fun with embossing paste! What do you think?
