Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Making It Bright

September 9, 2018 16 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  Today, I’m hopping with one of the fabulous Stamping Sunday design teams!  We are excited to highlight products for you from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  For the  Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Making It Bright, we are using Making Christmas Bright and Making Every Day Bright and the coordinating products.  Let’s take a look at my creations.

Making Every Day Bright stamp set 148813 from theartfulinker.com

 

For my creations, I couldn’t wait to play with the uber cute

Making Every Day Bright!

I just love a versatile stamp set and this one is versatile in spades.

 

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Making It Bright Making Every Day Bright card from theartfulinker.com

 

To start, I used a Thick Whisper White base.

Then, I added a layer of Flirty Flamingo to create a tight mat.

On the Whisper White focal layer, I started by stamping the bulbs from Making Every Day Bright

in Memento Black.

Then, I used one of the Journaling Pens and my ruler to add cords to my bulb cluster.

Next, I stamped the the heart bulb and used the coordinating

Christmas Bulb Punch to cut it out.

To add color to the bulbs, I used Light Daffodil Delight and Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.

 

Christmas Bulb Punch tip from theartfulinker.com

 

Tip: To make using the Christmas Bulb punch really easy,

punch a piece of cardstock.

Then, use the holes to place the bulb and base stamps.

This way, they will line up perfectly for the punch!

 

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Making It Bright Making Every Day Bright card - Labeler Alphabet sentiment detail - from theartfulinker.com

 

For the sentiment, I used the Labeler Alphabet.

Once the words were cut apart, I added Foam Adhesive Strips and

and accent image from Making Every Day Bright.

To finish the card, I added sequins from the Iridescent mix.

 

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Making It Bright Favor

To make my favor, I started with a piece of Whisper White and

stamped it in Flirty Flamingo with the Buffalo Check stamp.

After scoring, I added a 1-1/8 Flirty Flamingo scallop circle.

Over that, I adhered several loops of Rose Metallic Thread.

Then, I stamped the bulb from Making Every Day Bright

and cut it with the Christmas Bulb Punch.

Again, I colored the bulb with Stampin’ Blends.

    How did you get the center of your bulb clear? Mine comes out the memento black.

    • Sara Levin February 7, 2019 at 4:21 pm

      Sharon ~ I used the bulb image from Making Every Day Bright. It is just an outline image so it does not pick up background/fill in color. If you’re using the same image, any chance you’ve used the footer side rather than the image side? I ask that because I mounted the wrong side of a stamp just this afternoon — no image just solid color.

      • Sharon February 9, 2019 at 12:06 pm

        My problem was I was using the light bulb from Making Christmas Bright. I appreciate your quick response and great idea.

        • Sara Levin February 10, 2019 at 4:33 am

          So glad that resolved that problem!

  • Bonnie October 20, 2018 at 2:50 pm

    I love the favor. So adorable. Do you know the measurements of the cardstock with the flirty flamingo buffalo stamp and the chocolate. I LOVE IT. Pink my fav….:)

    • Sara Levin October 23, 2018 at 8:19 am

      So glad you like this Bonnie! I love these little RAK size favors. So, I included it in my Spooky Sweets Online Class.

  • Ashley Fifer September 13, 2018 at 8:23 am

    I love everything about your projects Sara! Such a great tip to use the cardstock as a guide on a clear block. I have only used that trick for the stamparatus.

    • Sara Levin September 13, 2018 at 8:34 am

      Thanks Ashley! It’s funny how it is often the little tips and tricks that make our crafting day.

  • Cornelia September 10, 2018 at 3:56 am
