Holiday Bundles - Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Holiday Bundles Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Kaylee Van Es' Blog. Just over the moon about what she has created!

Today, we will be showcasing a few of the holiday bundles that are available in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. The twist for this hop is that we all have challenged ourselves to feature these bundles, using them with alternative colors than the ones they are designed to coordinate with in the catalog. For example, I will be using the Snowman Season Bundle which was designed to go with the coordinating suite colors of Basic Black, Blueberry Bushel, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, and Shaded Spruce. While I will be using Purple Posy, Pool Party, Blamy Blue, and Coastal Cabana on my projects today. Each of us will feature a variety of bundles, so make sure you hop all the way through to see even more amazing inspiration. 


What I decided to do for my projects today was to create a little Christmas tag gift box. This set is perfect for adorable little tags and I even added a bonus surprise in the box: a snowman snow globe! I had the idea of turning the amazing Snow Globe Shaker Domes into a dimensional shaker snow globe ornament the moment I saw them in the catalog back in August and knew the little snowman would be a perfect centerpiece for it. 

The dimensional snow globes are super easy to make. Here's how you do it: 
  1. First, take one dome and peel away the adhesive backer and fill with shaker bits. Mine has some Snowflake Sequins (LOVE), Ice Stampin' Glitter, and a bit of extra Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter.
  2. Second, arrange your pieces (trees, snowman etc.). I used the stick part of the dome to keep them in place.
  3. You will want to add some thread or twine at the top, between the domes so your ornament can hang.
  4. Next, take another dome, peel away the adhesive backing, line up the rims of the domes and stick together. I also added a thin layer of liquid glue to ensure the domes stayed sealed since I had so many things layered between them.
  5. You can add a snow globe base as well. I used the Snow Globe Scenes Dies for my base.

Here's a closeup of the effect (below):

For the box and one of the tags, I wanted a matching striped pattern, so I used my Pool Party, Purple Posy, and Balmy Blue Blends. I often love to create my own DSP with the blends because they color so beautifully. I deconstructed the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit box for the design of the box. Then I just colored onto white cardstock with my Blends. I even used the Posy Blend to color the ribbon to coordinate!

Here's a close-up of the tag on the box:

Here's the tag with the striped background that I created with my blends. I love this little snowman. He reminds me of Charlie Brown when he's doing the happy dance, LOL:

For my third tag, I stamped, colored and punched out my snowman. It's so simple to create multiple images for my projects with that adorable snowman punch. 

This was such a fun and inspiring challenge, using these products with alternative color combos. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's tags and designs (full list of supplies below). Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages.
