Hi STampers, my share today is with the Stampin Up Bright and Beautiful for Happy Stampers Blog Hop

I announced the grand prizes for my Black Friday-Cyber Monday weekend shopping specials, if you didn’t, another is coming out on November 21 with the Stampin Up Specials, so sign up so you don’t miss out, I will also have individual gifts for my ordering customers as well, stay tuned for that announcement – Newsletter sign up is on the right side of my blog –
Can you tell how much I love this stamp set, I even used it to create the above banner and buttons (below) for the blog hop, LOL….I did this by purchasing it as a MDS Download to have fun with it in my My Digital STudio Program (you need the My Digital Program before you can use it in your computer)…just a heads up there.
I decided to go all shiny and gold for this one, so my colors are White, Black and Gold Embossed…and I love how the coordinating Stars Framelits make it so easy to cut these out….check out the bag and the card, I did two layers and scored the top one down the center to create a 3-d ornament.
The gift bag is about a 6-10 and I used the large stamp in the set for this little fellow and embellished with stars punched from the Gold Glimmer Paper. I embossed and cut out two stars and layered them on top of each other for the “ornament” and the hanger is the beautiful 1/8″ Gold Ribbon.
The Card – Building Tips: The card starts with a Basic Black Base, a Whisper White front, gold embossed with the Dotty Angles Stamp Set. Black 1/8″ taffeta ribbon is attached to the back of the bottom star and goes up and over the card front to create the hanger then the Gold Satin Ribbon is applied before it’s attached to the card base. I love making bows with this satin ribbon and then I further embellished the bow with some Gold Sequin Trim and another punched out gold glimmer star. The star ornament is two embossed and die cut medium stars and they are embossed on the Stampin Up Brushed Gold Card stock. a 5-1/2 square will yield both stars. score down the center of the top one and fold in for a pretty 3-d effect.
The Curvy Keepsake Box – Everyone should have this die, it’s so stinkin cute and super easy to put together, just two pieces and you are done….of course I had to emboss the dickens out of it first!….Another Gold Satin Bow ties it up with a little Gold Sequin Trim Bling and a star on top!…I am thinking this might be the perfect size for a Pandora Charm!…don’t you?
BLOG CANDY – Because I think everyone should try this adorable little box, my BLOG CANDY is a 4 pac kit of them, all cut out for you, including the bows, the gold sequin trim and yes even the stars….
