Beautiful Gift Wrap with Lots of Sparkle

 

Today we're creating a Beautiful Gift Wrap with Lots of Sparkle.

What do you think? You can put just about anything in the box and the Window box top
recipient will be wowed! Take a closer look at the top--elegant sparkle and shine!Window box side

..this is that super large snowflake in the Snowfall thinlit dies that is only available in November or as long as supplies last (and we know that the White Velvet Paper is already sold out).

This is created with the Window Box thinlit die and put together with Tear & Tape. Then I cut the largest snowflake (Snowfall thinlits) and adhered it to the lid of the Window box with glue dots. I tied the box with the White Satin/Silver ribbon....it just doesn't need anything else, does it?

The other products are still available at this time...the Snow is Glistening stamp set, Happiness Surrounds stamp set, Snowfall Thinlets, and the Snowfall trinkets. You can download the the entire brochure here  Download 10.01.18_FLYER_Q4_OUT_OF_PUB_US

Iny treat box Top tiny treat box

Here's a better top view. This little cutie was created with the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes--they simply fold together (no adhesive needed), fill with a goodie and tie with a lovely ribbon.

What a crappy picture!!!

What a crappy picture!!!  Yes, it is and I apologize for it even though I tried everything I could think of to capture the glimmer of these Stampin'Up! Shimmer paints....I probably should have ditched this post but the actual results are so gorgeous that I want to explain how to do it and I want you to try it so you can see the dazzle yourself.

There's a secret sauce that I'll explain in a bit but first I'll show you the 'raw' painted paper and then the card....if you can imagine this paper with a sheen and shimmer all over the surface you'll begin to imagine how gorgeous this turns out.... 3 paintsWhat you can get an impression of is  mix of Vegas Gold and Bright Copper---then over the top of this is an overall coating of Champagne Mist--this gives the entire piece that extra gorgeous sheen....which I admit you cannot see in this picture and no amount of maneuvering or changing of lights would capture what I want you to see.

Here's the resulting card

Card2Yes, it's a nice card but you have to imagine the sparkly glimmer and sheen of these shimmer paints...please come see the sample or ask me for a small sample and I'll mail one to you...it's got to be seen to be believed!!!

I'll give you the simple directions below and a list of supplies....remember to use this month's host code (CAT2BCAH) if you place an online order--for each $50 in product that you purchase I'll give you $5 in Stampin'Up! product.

Card directions:

1. Cut 3 1/2 X 4 3/4 Glossy white cardstock
    *Sponge randomly with Gold Shimmer paint; dry with heat tool
    *Sponge the unpainted areas with Copper Shimmer paint: dry with heat tool
    Note: you can keep repeating this process until you get the depth of color you like
    *Lastly sponge the entire piece with Champagne Shimmer paint & dry.

2. Stamp Thanks (Floral Statements) in Stazon Black ink, dry with heat tool to assure ink is dried on this glossy surface.

3. Cut 4 7/8 X 3 5/8 Basic Black cardstock; adhere to back of stamped image piece with liquid glue

Graceful Glass Designer Vellum- Simple & Elegant

 Today we'll design a card with Graceful Glass Designer Vellum -- Simple & Elegant. The Designer Vellum is printed with black embossed images that alone are gorgeous, but when you add a bit of color to the underside of the design--becomes "simply elegant." 8-28-18 flowrs

Because the vellum has 12 single-sided designs (you get 2 of each design) there are endless possibiities for creating elegant cards. For today's card I used 1/4 of a sheet (meaning you can get 4 cards from a single sheet of vellum with this design).

I used the Blends (alcohol markers) on the back side of the vellum to provide that beautiful hint of color (you can color the front and get a bit more vivid color). I layer a piece of white cardstock under the vellum to give it that sharp contrast but you can mellow it down by leaving the vellum un-backed for a very soft effect.

I'll give you the directions to create this quick and easy card followed by the supply list so you can purchase your supplies to re-create this lovely card.

Remember. during August you will receive a $5 coupon from Stampin'Up! (for redemption in September) for each $50 in product that you purchase.  Make sure Stampin'Up! has your most current email address.

Card directions:

1. Cut 4 1/4 X 11 Poppy Parage cardstock, score the long side at 5 1/2 (card base)

2. On Whisper White cardstock stamp "happy birthday" (Southern Serenade stamp set) in Stazon Jet Black ink; punch out with 1 3/4 Circle punch, adhere 3 rhinestones. Cut 2 X 2 Basic Black cardstock, adhere circle with liquid glue. Adhere to card front with liquid glue (see photo for placement)

3. Cut strip of vellum from Designer paper (see photo for selection), trim top and bottom to make strip 5 1/2 long; color back of vellum with the following Blends: Calypso Coral Light, Old Olive Dark, Pool Party Dark.

4. Cut Whisper White cardstock 1 5/8 X 5 1/2; adhere vellum with glue dots (hint: place glue dots behind the colored flowers to avoid seeing these through the vellum. Cut black cardstock 1 3/4 X 5 1/2--adhere to back of white cardstock with liquid glue. Adhere this unit to card front next to the verse.

(If you missed Tuesdays card check it out here  http://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2018/08/stunning-no-cut-cards.html)

This one doesn't have any coloring (good for my friend who does not enjoy coloring--although I saw you purchased the Watercolor pencils! LOL) except for the Wink of Stella on the leaves and that's not really coloring, right? Sparkle is always GOOD! Can you see the sparkle  8-24-18 leaves close up

Again we are using the Delightfully Detailed Notecards & Envelopes as our base--this means that beautiful watercolor background is already done---everytime it turns out beautiful because it's printed on the notecard for you. So the hard part is completed and all you have to do is stamp.
