The fabulous Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit!

The 2014 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Supplement cannot even begin to do justice to how fabulous the Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit is!  You can read all day long you can create 26 3D stars, but seeing one made close up and personal helps to make it all sink in.  Watch my video to see how I put one 3D star together and the hints I learned from putting my first one together.

If the video is not displaying properly, watch my Many Merry Stars Kit video here.

Stampin' Up! Many Merry Stars Simply Created KitAt Founder’s Circle, one of the Christmas trees was decorated with the Many Merry 3D stars.  You could also use them to decorate a mantel.  So pretty.  And fun to make.  The design is very clever.  Easier to make than I would have thought.

You also have the option to use some of the stars and accessories to create gift tags, use on handmade cards or adorn other projects.

Fast and easy Stampin’ Up! Tee-Hee-Hee card idea

Stampin' Up! Tee-Hee-Hee Stamp SetIf you have the supplies, or live close to Utah and get your orders in a couple of days after ordering, this Stampin’ Up! Tee-Hee-Hee card idea is fast & easy to do.

The Halloween card was from the Founder’s Circle swap.  Embossing and die-cutting will make quick work of this.

In order to have the entire front of your Tee-Hee-Hee card embossed with stars from the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, you’ll need to cut your Basic Black Cardstock to 4-1/4″ x 11″.  That’s the only way you can fit an entire card with an embossing folder through your Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Here’s a time-saving tip:  emboss two cards at the same time.  Works like a charm with good embossed images.

While you’ve got your Big Shot out, die-cut three or four pieces of Crumb Cake Cardstock with the Top Note Bigz Die.  Half of the work is already done in just seconds!

Rub the Embossing Buddy over the bottom half of the die-cut Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Stamp the witches’ cauldron with VersaMark ink.  If making more than one of these cards, stamp several.  Now sprinkle on Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool.  The VersaMark ink will stay wet for a good while allowing you to keep stamping instead of stopping and starting.  the pot is small, it will only take a few seconds to melt the powder.

Stamp the broom and bat also from the Stampin’ Up! Tee-Hee-Hee Stamp Set with Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad ink.  Add some dots in Crumb Cake from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp “Brew up a little fun!” on top of the cauldron.  Add a few well placed Basic Rhinestone Jewels.  They’re self-adhesive.  Big time-saver.

Adhere the Natural Chevron Ribbon with Mini Glue Dots.  Add a Stampin’ Dimensional to each corner of the die-cut Crumb Cake and attach.  You’re done!

Like to make this Halloween card?  All the supplies are available to order in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com.  Heads up on a couple of the supplies, Tee-Hee-Hee Stamp Set and Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, they’re available only through January 5, 2015.

Learn how to make this punch art roasted turkey!

Punch Art Roasted Turkey Circle Thinlits CardOkay, just how cute is this punch art roasted turkey?  Love it!  It was one of the great swaps from Founder’s Circle.  

Would you believe the turkey is from the Stampin’ Up! Bird Builder Punch?  I’ve taken several pictures so you can see how to make the punch art roasted turkey.

This should make it a little easier to picture it.

Simple Stampin’ Up! For All Things Card Idea

Stampin' Up! For All Things and Autumn Wood ElementsThe Autumn Wooden Accents Embellishments from the Holiday Catalog dress up my simple Stampin’ Up! For All Things card.  You might think because they’re made of wood they’re heavy.  There are feather light.  It will not cost any additional postage due to weight or thickness adding these to my card.  Of the handmade autumn cards I’ve sent with them, haven’t had a single report of one that got broken going through the mail processing machines.  That’s great news if you’d like to dress up your fall cards with them too.

 

 

Stampin' Up! For All Things and Autumn Wood Elements Card

Speaking of dressing up a simple handmade card, how about the three different colors for the “Grateful for You” greeting? Easy to do with the Many Marvelous Markers.

I wanted fall colors without using the expected, while perfectly lovely, Cajun Craze.  For my autumn color combination, I went to my favorite color source – the Color Coach.  One of the Old Olive combinations provided the Old Olive, Soft Suede Crushed Curry combo.

Stampin' Up! Color Coach for autumn color combination

One other easy step to keep my simple card from being ordinary are the layers.  I didn’t use the usual 1/4″ for each layer.  The Crushed Curry layer is only 1/8″ larger than the Very Vanilla Cardstock.  That gives each side only 1/16″ matting.  With that small of a mat, your measurements need to be as exact as possible.  There isn’t any room to be slightly off.  For something so little, it will rat you out. :)   Always worth it for a slight touch-of-color accent.

Stampin' Up! For All Things CardWhile the Crushed Curry Cardstock layer is only 1/8″ larger than the Very Vanilla, it’s 1/2″ smaller than my Old Olive Cardstock card base.  You can see how these two not-the-usual size layers stepped up my For All Things card.

One more ever-so-easy step up was to use Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the Crushed Curry Cardstock.  You can see it pretty well in this sideview picture.
