Merry Christmas Eve 2019 - Update Tuesday December 24, 2019

Hello!

Merry Christmas Eve 2019!  I hope you are all home celebrating this holiday with your loved ones.  I am home right now drinking a cup of hot tea while I write this blog post.  I have the Christmas tree lights on and the glow is so pretty.  One of my favorite things to do is sit in the living room with nothing but the tree lights on.  You?

So without further hesitation, here is today's Update Tuesday.   The inspiration that Stampin' UP! shared with us today is so cuuuute!  It centers around a Free Sale-a-Bration item that will be available beginning January 3rd with a $50 purchase.  I It is the Metallic Baker's Twine and Sequins Combo Pack.  The Metallic Twine is in two different colors, So Saffron with Gold Metallic Thread and Bermuda Bay with Bermuda Bay Metallic Thread.  The sequins are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, and So Saffron and come in two sizes: 4mm and 6mm.  

Here is the photo that was shared with us demonstrators this morning.

How cute are these projects!  And the sequins metallic baker's twine add just the right amount of sparkle.  Which project is your favorite?  Mine is the birthday card featuring the lion from the upcoming Birthday Bonanza Suite.  I love this little lion and if you do too, you will absolutely love the Birthday Bonanza Suite when it premieres on January 3rd.  As luck would have it....I do not have this suite yet but it is on my list for my next order!  Which I'm sure will be happening soon.  
I can hardly wait to get it and make so many fun cards.


I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!
I live & love to inspire you!

THANK YOU!

Measurements And Instructions For The Birthday Bonanza Birthday Card

  1. Cut a piece of Bermuda Card Stock 5in. x 7in. and score at 3 1/2in. and fold on score line so you have a 3 1/2in. x 5in. card.
  2. Cut a piece of Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper 3 1/4in. x 5 in. and adhere to the front of the card using Snail Adhesive.
  3. Using the Bonanza Dies die cut a stitched Whisper White Card Stock tag.  The tag measures                3 3/4in. x 2 1/8in.
  4. Using the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set stamp the lion body and face in So Saffron Ink and stamp the lion' mane  & tip of his tail as well.  Then die cut them using the Bonanza Dies.
  5. Using Shimmery Crystal Effects, glue small strips of the So Saffron Metallic Baker's Twine around the die cut Mane piece.
  6. Assemble your lion using Shimmery Crystal Effects and Stampin' Dimensionals.  I would attach the made to the body using the Shimmery Crystal Effects and a Stampin' Dimensional to attach the face to the mane.
  7. Stamp "Happy Birthday" from the Bonanza Buddies Stamp set onto the lower part of the tag in Calypso Coral Ink.
  8. Attach your lion to the tag using Stampin' Dimensionals.  
  9. Attach your tag to the card front using Stampin Dimensionals.
  10. Using Shimmery Crystal Effects or the Fine Tip Glue Pen, adhere several Metallic Sequins to the tag.  Voila!



Cheers to you!  Happy wishes for Christmas and the New Year!
