Pals Blog Hop-Home For The Holidays

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is Home for the Holidays, so the design team created a project for the holiday of their choice. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

The Window Wishes bundle is a versatile bundle. You can dress the window up, you can leave it clean & simple. You can create a scene in the window & many more options for this bundle. For my Home For The Holidays project, the festive window was exactly what I was looking for. Last month, for a colour challenge, I used it & had a fall wreath in the window (see way at the bottom for that sample).

Step by Step Tutorial

– Begin with a 5 ½ x 8 ½ card base of thick Basic White card stock; scored at the 4 ¼ using a Paper Trimmer

– Use a Paper Trimmer to cut
Soft Succulent card stock to 4 x 5 ¼
Lights Aglow to 3 ¾ x 5

– Adhere the Soft Succulent card stock to the thick Basic White card base using adhesive of choice (I used liquid Tombow glue).

– Adhere the Lights Aglow DSP to the Soft Succulent card stock using dimensionals.

– Use a scrap piece of Basic White card stock & run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Window dies (window, frame & ledge).

– Use a scrap piece of Vellum card stock & run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Window dies (large window die).

– On the Vellum die cut window, stamp the sentiment with Versamark ink (sentiment from Merriest Moments stamp set). Cover with silver Basics Embossing Powder then set with a Heat Tool.

– Build your window scene using glue of choice. For the outer window frame I used Tombow liquid glue, for the inner window frame, I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

–Cut the mini dimensionals in half to pop the ledge.

– Use a scrap piece of Snowy White Velvet sheets & run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Window dies (trees).

– Colour the die cut trees using Stampin’ Blends (Dark Soft Succulent & SU100). Be mindful it will bleed, a little goes a long way!

– Attach the trees using mini dimensionals

– For the eye candy decorations, I used 2021-2023 In Colour Opal Rounds.

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on December 14th. Our theme will be Last Minute Gift/Card Ideas.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.

My name is Jill Loveland & I have been an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in the Seattle area since 2010. I joined in 2010 during Sale-a-bration & have been hooked since. I love how the Stampin' Up! products coordinate from ink, paper to dies & embellishments. The quality of Stampin' Up! is the best in the paper crafting industry. I love to share my joy for card making & paper crafts with others. I hope you enjoy my blog & will visit often.
