Stampin’ Up! Bright & Delicate Baubles with Video Tutorial and a Blog Candy Winner!

Good morning and happy Sunday!  Got a little scare last night – I was afraid THIS was Fall-Back-Weekend!!  😳😳😳 I am NOT ready to go back to the Dark Time Schedule (DST).  Are you?!? 🤔  Fortunately, we’ve still got a few weeks yet!  Whew!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live Tutorial, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube, here ’tis!

I hadn’t used the Bright Baubles bundle yet, so when I saw the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, I thought it fit the bill nicely.  And the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder is ALWAYS a good idea!  Take a look-see:

And here’s that Freshly Made Sketches challenge that inspired the card layout.

And the color palette is from the Global Design Project color challenge.

I started with a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock and the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder.  Using my Sahara Sand Ink Pad, I scraped it across the EMbossing side of the folder (the side with the Stampin’ Up! logo printed on it).  Then I carefully placed the panel inside the folder and ran it thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  The ink added some really nice dimension to the embossed panel!

I matted the embossed panel on Basic Black to make the card front.

I used the Delicate Baubles die set – bundled with the Bright Baubles stamp set – to cut two detailed ornaments from Sahara Sand cardstock and the matching solid ornaments from Basic Black.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the die cuts together.

I cut two Real Red ribbon ornament hangers using the uber-cute die in the Delicate Baubles set.  I snipped off the “string” from one and adhered it to the top of the larger ornament with Liquid Glue.  I left the string on the second one and adhered it to the smaller ornament.

With Liquid Glue, I adhered the larger ornament at the top of the card front – letting it hang off the top and side just a little.  Tip:  lay the card front on your card base so that you can judge how far the ornaments can hang off the card front but NOT off the edge of the card base! 🙂

I adhered the second ornament – with its attached “string” – with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Bright Baubles sentiment in Real Red on a Basic White strip and snipped some banner ends.  Then I edged the banner with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Red Rhinestone Jewels here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I simply stamped the large ornament from Bright Baubles in stamped off TWICE Sahara Sand (tip: that is also called “third generation” stamping!) in the middle of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Bright Baubles ornament on the front with full-strength Sahara Sand and added the sweet little bow in Real Red…

,,,and then I added some Heartwarming Hugs DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I like how this color palette looks with the Bright Baubles ornaments – the Sahara Sand Delicate Baubles die cuts really pop against their black, solid backgrounds!  And the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder is simply gorgeous – especially when you can accentuate the pretty melody with some added inking!

I hope you like!
