Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsakes Glow Lantern Decorations

Morning, y’all!  Happy Sunday!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – but you’d like to see how to make these fun decorations, here’s the replay. 🙂

A customer – and friend! – asked me about using Vellum and battery tea lights with the Mini Curvy Keepsake dies.  She also asked about using the Delicata inks on the Vellum.  So…I did it all – and made some Christmas and wedding/anniversary decorations.  Take a look-see:

The wedding/anniversary lantern plays along nicely with this week’s Global Design Project challenge!

 

Isn’t it pretty?  For that one, I cut the Mini Curvy Keepsake Die from a piece of Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum.  While I was cutting, I also cut out a snowflake from the very bottom (you’ll see why in a minute!) with a die in the set.

I covered it with large So Many Stars stars in Gold Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink and Silvery Shimmer small scattered stars.  I used my Heat Tool on the low setting to help the ink dry – the Delicata inks take a little longer anyway and that’s increased when on Vellum!

Before adding the decorations, I popped a battery-operated tea light into the inside – helping it stay put with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I used the MR&MRS from the Piece of Cake stamp set, in Silvery Shimmer Delicata Metallic Ink and then cut it with a Stitched Stars die.  I cut a larger star from Gold Glimmer Paper and popped the sentiment onto it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the stacked star with Liquid Glue and then added a big bow from 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim (I used my Bow Easy – you can see how to make the double loops on the video!).  The bow is adhered with a Glue Dot!

And…here’s how it looks all lit up!

I also made a trio of Holiday lanterns – with sentiments from the So Many Stars stamp set.  Check out the video to see “Love”! 🙂

These are made the same way – using Vellum card stock.  The sentiments are stamped in Real Red – and not stacked.

I cut them with a Stitched Stars die and adhered them with Liquid Glue to the box.

I cut pine boughs from Shaded Spruce card stock, using the dies in the Mini Curvy Keepsake Die set.  These are adhered with Liquid Glue and have a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (from the Christmastime is Coming set coming on 1 Nov) at their bases.

The bows for these guys are made with Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon – adhered with Glue Dots.

And here’s how these babies look with their little lights a-shining!

Now – remember that snowflake I cut in the bottom of the Curvy Keepsake Box?  Here’s why…

When I stuck the tea light in – with a couple of Glue Dots – the switch is positioned over that cut out.  Which means…I’ll be able to turn my light on and off when I need it! 😉

Et Voila!  The Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies come thru again!  Can’t you just see these on a wedding reception table, for a Bridal Shower, at Christmas dinner or on an Open House buffet?  I sure can!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


On Friday evening, as Nestor made his way inland, we got one of the most spectacular sunsets we’ve seen in a while.

Finny is a great connoisseur of sunsets.

I put a filter on the camera – this is what it REALLY looked like!

 

Amazing!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn and Katy are reluctant siblings.

Well – Katy is reluctant.  Mostly because Finn can get a little over-exuberant in his love and affection for her!

If you’re picking up what I’m putting down.

But – as with any sibling pair, they have their moments.

She’s gotten so much bigger than she was that she has a little harder time getting into her kitty bed.

Yes – the one she would have nothing AT ALL to do with for the first three months we had it.  Guess it needed to be right in the middle of the sofa to meet with her approval!

Finn is a little annoyed that she tends to take her half out of the middle.

Sisters….

Stampin’ Up! Curvy Keepsake Tags Tags and Tags!!

Wow.  Can you even believe it’s Friday again!  Something has happened to the space-time continuum, I’m pretty sure.  A shift in the Force.  And warp in the weft.  Something!  Time.  Is.  Flying!

A few weeks back, I did a Saturday evening video sharing a whole stable full of Mini Curvy Keepsake treat boxes – from wintery to Thanksgiving-y to Halloween-y….Click the pic to go to that post and see the video, if you like!

Today, based on my friend Amy Koender’s adorable reindeer that she made this week – and a picture of a spooky Halloween cakeball I saw on Pinterest – I created a NEW member of my Mini Curvy Keepsake Stable – with the help of an easy tag from the Tags Tags Tags Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Ladies and gents….I present…The One-Eyed Purple People Eater! LOL

And he’s super easy!

I started with a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock that I cut with the Mini Curvy Keepsake die to make the treat box.

Then I embossed it in the Hammered 3D Embossing Folder.  You’ll need to run the die cut thru twice to get the whole thing embossed…

Then I folded it all together and got ready to decorate him.  Her?

The eye is a mix-mash of die cuts from various sets in my stash.

His blood-shot eye is a flower from the Perennial Birthday set – stamped in Poppy Parade on Whisper White – then cut with a button die from the Arts & Crafts Die set.

Next is a Basic Black 1/2″ Circle Punch – then a Granny Apple Green Googly Eye embellishment.

I adhered the pieces and parts together – sort of wonky-ly cuz…you know.  One Eyed Purple People Eater – gotta be a little wonky!  Then I added it with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Ha – didn’t think I’d get one in, didja?!

His eyelash is a short piece of Granny Apple Green “grass” from the Wiggly Bugs dies, he’s got ears from the Tasteful Background Die set, his “horns” (in Gorgeous Grape) are actually “quotes” from the Hand Lettered Prose dies.  His fangs – I feel confident that in order to be a “people eater” he’d have to have some teeth! – are Whisper White leftovers from the Tasteful Background die set.  All stuck on with Liquid Glue!

Now – his hindend is also decorated – with a Granny Apple Green “tail” – cut with a branch die in the Mini Curvy Keepsake set.  It’s adhered with Liquid Glue and has a Gorgeous Grape gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones at the top.

Hey!  Have YOU ever seen a One-Eyed Purple People Eater?  PROVE that he doesn’t have a tail like that?! 😉

The tag is from the Tags Tags Tags stamps set.  I stamped it in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White and cut it with the matching die in the bundled Trio of Tags Set.  I also cut two little jack-o-lanterns (in Trio of Tags) in Gorgeous Grape and stuck them on with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Gorgeous Grape Noble Peacock Rhinestone.

I ran a length of 3/8″ Tricolor Ribbon thru the top and tied it off with some White Solid Baker’s Twine – looping the tag in as I tied the bow.

And – that was it!

Et Voila! A new – and uber-spooky addition to my little gang!

It’s fun to look thru all the tools in your toolbox and come up with fun ways to decorate these fun Mini Curvy Keepsake boxes!  They can be snowmen, OEPPE’s, Reindeer, and Fall Favors!

Go ahead…. think outside the…Mini-Curvy-Keepsake Box!  I hope you like!
