Sunday’s Focus Loot

Look at all of the loot that I shared last night during my Facebook live Sunday’s focus.

The darling Project Kit Sincerely Santa is a kit that has everything to make 30 Christmas tags.  But as you know I like to create outside the box and see what else we can do with our paper products, so that is what I want to share with you today.

First I want to show you a couple of the tags made according to the project kit instructions.

When I made my first tag I instantly thought that I needed to use one as an embellishment to something else.  I couldn’t just use them as tags, they are just too special.

The tags are layered and full of texture.  Simply said they are eye candy.  I feel that you can do so much more than embellishing a gift with them.

I decided to add them to the gift card holders.   In the photo below two gift card holders are embellished using tags.  The other two gift card holders were embellished using stamps, ink, and punches.

To make the gift card holder  I used the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  If you want to know how to make this cute holder you can go to my Facebook business page @ Stampinalldaywithbev and watch last nights recording.

Did you know that on Sunday’s nights I go live?  If you didn’t know, you can go there now and watch the recordings.  Then set yourself a reminder to watch me next Sunday at 7 p.m. Pacific time.

In the photo below is a picture of the inside of the holders.  The center pop up is made to hold a gift card or cash.

 

In the annual catalog, we also have this adorable silver gable boxes.  All you need to do to dress this box up is to add a tag. How cute is that?

 

How about making your Christmas cards with the kit?  Wow, just by layering the pieces of the kit and adding them to a card is quick easy and so so cute.  The only part of the embellishment that is not in the kit is the Buffalo stripe strip.

I love to make Christmas tree ornaments.  So I added a tag to a small wreath.  At Target in the dollar spot, you will find Christmas garland.  The garland is three dollars, but you can make 4 or 5 wreaths with it.  The number of wreaths you make depends on how thick you want your wreaths.  Again for instruction on what I did here just watch the Facebook live video.

Remember gift cards are given all year round.  So use designer series paper that you have and make one today.  When you see how easy it is, you will make them over and over again. Below is a Birthday one.

I hope you enjoyed the Facebook Live last night and if you missed it I hope you go watch today.  Let me know what you think about my quick and easy ideas.

Have a blessed day and remember to Live Loved My Friends ~ Beverlee Product List

Color Fusers October 2018 Blog Hop

Happy Fall ya’ all,  Yeah that is right summer flew by and now fall is upon us.  Fall happens to be my favorite time of year.  I love the change of colors in the trees, the chill in the air and the aromas of soups in the slow cooker.  I also love to bake, something about the smell of cookies baking or a pie sitting on the table ready to taste.

Stamping for the fall season invites you to use the color, Cajun Craze.  By adding Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Granny Apple Green to the fall color Cajun Craze you get an interesting bit of brightness to your fall artwork.

My first step in creating my card was to stamp the wreath from the stamp set WISHING YOU WELL in EARLY ESPRESSO ink onto WOOD TEXTURE 6 X 6 DSP.  I did that because I wanted to use the perfect shape of the stamped wreath to give me a perfect shape to work with.

Second I ran the DSP through the Big Shot using the PINEWOOD PLANKS folder.  Now I was ready to create.

 

 

Next,  I added my layer piece to the base card.  Then I added a strip of FOAM ADHESIVE STRIPS on top of the stamped wreath.

My next step was to tone down the other colors just a bit.  To do that I added worked with the color on color technique.   This technique is effective and easy.  All you need to do is tap and rub the same color ink directly onto the same color cardstock.  While the cardstock looks like a hot mess originally when you punch out your sprigs, the ink gives each sprig texture as well as additional interest.  The other thing I like about ink directly put onto cardstock is that the cardstock immediately is toned down.  Now, these bright colors are appropriate for a fall setting.

 

To create the sprigs I used the new punch which is named  SPRIG PUNCH.  You can find this punch on page 29 of the holiday catalog.  I punched out a bunch of sprigs in each color, then I was ready to build my wreath.

I just placed the sprigs onto the foam adhesive strips in an organized manner.  Place one at the top then one at the bottom and then one on both sides.  After you have the wreath spaced out in quarters you can start filling it in.  I chose to use more Granny Apple Green then any other color and to add in the other colors lightly.  Lastly, I added a glittery double bow.

This card is very simple to make and does not take long at all.  Punches make your creations come to life quickly.

For this goodie bag, I did the same thing I did on the card.  Stamp, add the adhesive strip and build your wreath.   Adding a cute little tag finished this project off.  The greeting is from the WISHING YOU WELL SET as well.

 

In this close up picture,  you can really see the effects of the color on color technique..

And here is a close up so that you can see all of the detail.  The bow was sprayed with an adhesive and then I sprinkled on dazzling diamonds glitter.

Enjoy your fall and thank you for stopping over.  Now head on over to see what other fantastic ideas are waiting for you.
