How to Make Really Cute Star Boxes with the Many Merry Stars Kit (with VIDEO!)

Have you heard me talking about this cute Many Merry Stars project kit yet?  I LOVE it! 20141020TH_HolidaySupplement_en-US It is part of the new Holiday Supplement that just launched today.

And before you roll your eyes and say, “another catalog?” let me tell you that it is just a few more cute projects and coordinating elements that are a fun addition to what you’ve already seen in the holiday catalog.  The main items is a new stamp set that goes with the Stars framelits along with this awesome Many Merry Stars kit that I’ll be sharing with you today!  Plus, there are some new project life goodies that are perfect for documenting the holidays or for putting together a December Daily album!  (I’ll be talking more about December Daily in the near future).  And some new ways to see some great card kits.   But FYI – the new items in the Holiday Supplement are while supplies last, so don’t delay too long if you see something you love!

Check out the Holiday Supplement here

 But for today, let me introduce you to the Many Merry Stars boxes!  (And YES! I have a video further down in this post!)

Many Merry Stars Project Kit

So stinkin’ cute, right?!  Here is everything you get in the kit… it was actually pretty hard for me to get a picture of all of it. Smile

In the kit you get the supplies to make 26 3D Stars including:

  • Front and back of 26 different stars made out of Kraft cardstock & gold glimmer paper
  • the side pieces to hold the front and back together – WITH adhesive already on!
  • 2 sheets of die cut printed stars, banners, and bow pieces for embellishment
  • 2 sheets of white die cut banners and tags
  • 1 sheet of cherry cobbler stickers (words & stars)
  • Gold baker’s twine
  • Silver sequins
  • 20 wood snowflake elements
  • Gold Glimmer paper works and star decorations
  • Tips and instruction sheet

So, for example, on the big star you can see I used some of the sticker words, some gold glimmer accents, the silver sequins, awesome wood snowflakes, and some of the gold baker’s twine.

For most of the pieces, I used the Tombow liquid glue but in some cases I pulled out my glue dots (for the sequins) and my Stampin’ Dimensionals (for the ampersand).

You can make big stars or smaller stars….

And they are super easy to make too!

Check out the video below to see how easy it is to make these stars.  I walk through making this cute red star (above) from start to finish!

(If you are reading this in email, click here to see the video on my blog)

I’ll be sharing more project ideas with this kit over the next few weeks and will be holding a class in November for you local folks!  So, keep an eye out for those!  And if you have any questions or would like to know more, just let me know!

NEW Class by Mail! Endless Wishes Card Gift Set & Desk Organizer

I’m so excited to share a new class that I just finished the samples for – the Endless Wishes card gift set!  This was a compilation of many of my favorite new (and returning!) holiday goodies that gave me lots of fun time playing and experimenting and being really stinkin’ glad I got them!  You know… Endless Wishes stamp set, Trim the Tree paper, Stars embossing folder, Stars framelits, etc.  Sigh… so much to love!

Here is one of the cards where I really got to play a lot with new stuff – what do you think?  Are you loving stars yet?

The best part of this was that I got to put this class together with one of my downline – Tanya Cabral and so we’ve worked together to design some really fun cards to share at our class in early November (Nov 3rd for those of you in the area that would like to attend. Smile)

Tips for creating this card:

  • The Endless Wishes stamp set is a returning favorite and is fabulous because you have the script font and the small type font.  Mix and match – INCLUDING COLORS – for really unique and trendy looks to your cards.
  • Tie your card together with similar elements – in this case the Stars embossing folder and the Star framelits!  The subtle tie-in helps keep your card cohesive without being busy.
  • Sponge the edges of your die cut elements to help them stand out from the background.  Here I sponged the star with Early Espresso ink and a sponge dauber.

Ok, and so this isn’t a tip, but don’t you just love that plaid?  It makes it look like the card has a cozy scarf, don’t you think?

And that is just one of SIX fabulous cards and yes, you see that cozy plaid in a desk organizer that you can actually use year round!  See, I think ahead. Winking smile

Sweet and Simple Christmas Card with Wondrous Wreath

Nothing like some Christmas cards to start getting me in the mood for the holiday season!  The late fall/winter time is my favorite time of the year!  Yes, there is Christmas and even my birthday, but I just love all the joy that is everywhere, the twinkling lights, the shimmer and sparkle that you see everywhere.  Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration girls are sharing some Christmas card joy and this is my card I wanted to share:

Isn’t it so cheery?!  I love how easy this stamp set is to make these fun wreaths.  You get three stamps that each add a little bit more to the wreath:

  1. The leaves of the wreath
  2. A few accent leaves of the wreath
  3. The berries for the wreath

Plus there are handle guides ON THE STAMP that help you line up everything just right!

I was going to try to explain lining it all up, but I realized you would be so much better served by a video, so I’ll put one together for you very soon!

Tips for making this card:

  • I like to start with a white 3.5”x3.5” piece of white scrap paper and stamp your image with all the leaves so that the guide (an extra “tail” of the photopolymer stamp) is pointed towards one corner.
  • Stamp your second image with the accent leaves over the top with it’s guide pointing towards the same corner (using the corners helps you remember how to line up your stamps)
  • The berries, just stamp however looks nice to you!

  • Keep it simple by using the matching framelits (Wonderful Wreath – and you might as well get the bundle, because you know you will want it and then you get 15% off both!) to cut out the wreath with both the inside and outside cutting at the same time.
  • And just cut out some cardstock with the included bow framelit to make a pretty bow!  Add a pearl for extra bling.
  • The sentiment even fits inside the fabulous Decorative Label punch.

Gentle Peace Photopolymer Stamp Set

I just love how they make this look with Blendabilities, or you can make it look even more realistic by doing the Stained Glass Window technique

And just because I heard recently that some people had missed the other Christmas Photopolymer stamps that came out recently, here is a reminder. Smile

Getting Merry with Seasonally Scattered

So, turns out I am really good at making projects… I can even do a pretty good job of photographing my project…um, NOT so good at actually editing and posting my photos! Oops!

I love creating and I love sharing the ideas with everyone because goodness knows how much inspiration I get from seeing the ideas from everyone else.  So, this week, I took a day and finished editing over 100 pictures that were left sitting on my computer begging me to post and so today I’m working on getting some of them up and posted!

This card is one I created for the Stampin’ Up Convention Display Boards this summer using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set.  Kinda fun figuring out different ways to use this big sentiment stamp.

A Blue Christmas

I had wanted to do something different with the stamp and so I actually colored it with 3 different markers to get the look on my sentiment:

  1. Start by coloring the letters portion with the Night of Navy marker
  2. Then color some of the snowflakes around the letters with the Lost Lagoon marker
  3. Finally color the outermost snowflakes with your Soft Sky marker
  4. Done!

I also “got creative” aka layer, layer, layer… and did some coordinating cardstock layers and added a touch of silver by glueing a border of silver baker’s twine around the edge of my sentiment (if you want to do this, I recommend the liquid glue with the green cap and putting a very fine line on your cardstock that you can squish your twine into).

And my accent point, I added some Smoky Slate chevron ribbon and a Subtles button to the corner and frayed the end of my twine a bit for some extra texture.

See a few more of my seasonally scattered project ideas on my blog here.

Peek-a-boo Washi Tape Card with a Quick Tip video tutorial

**LAST DAY!  Don’t miss out on the Stock Up & Save Sale!**


I’m so excited to share these cards with you today.  Not only because I love them, but also because I actually have a Quick Tip video tutorial to go with them!  Turns out I really enjoy putting videos together… who knew?  Anyway, let me share with you a fun card that you can reproduce with these punches or your favorites at home.

There are two main “fun” elements to this card – the washi tape strips and the layering of punches for the butterfly centerpiece. 

First, here is how you would create the butterfly centerpiece:

  1. Punch out a butterfly (this is the Elegant Butterfly punch) from a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock
  2. Set aside the punched out butterfly and grab the scrap paper with the butterfly hole in it.  Punch out a 2-1/2” circle using the 2-1/2” Circle punch so that the butterfly hole is in the middle of the circle.
  3. Sponge the edge of the circle with Coastal Cabana ink
  4. Punch out a 1-3/4” circle from a piece of Soft Suede scrap paper
  5. Set aside the punched out circle and grab the scrap paper with the circle hole in it.  Punch out a 2-3/8” scallop circle using the 2-3/8” scallop circle punch so that the 1-3/4” circle is centered in the middle of the scallop circle.
  6. Adhere the scallop circle to the front of the 2-1/2” sponged circle
  7. Adhere to the front of your card using Stampin’ Dimensionals

The other tip I have for you today is laying down your washi tape!  For my cards I used the sets from Stampin’ Up (Retro Fresh above, Beach House below).  You just lie three strips across your card front so that you can position your butterfly over the tape for a pop of color. 

Video Tutorial – Check out this video for a quick tip for how to make sure you Washi Tape goes on straight.  (note – if you are reading this in email, click here so you can view the video)

Now, as you saw in the video you can use different colors of paper and washi tape to give slightly different looks to your card.  Here is what the exact same design looked like only with Strawberry Slush cardstock and the Beach House washi tape:

Let me know what you think about the video!  Please leave a comment and let me know if you’d like me to do more and even better, if you prefer quick tip videos, walkthrough for projects, or product reviews!  I so appreciate the feedback!
