Stampin' Up! DIY Home Decor Wreath

Stampin-up-home-decor-wreath

Stampin' Up! DIY Home Decor Wreath from Lisa Brown, Ink and Inspirations

Today's DIY project is one that's been in my thoughts since the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog was in my hands.  It's always so much fun to think of how many different ways we can use our beautiful Stampin' Up! supplies.

With the hope of making this wreath light weight and to use in my studio or on the door, these metal gold hoops from Amazon were just right!
You will also need a hot glue gun.

Let's take a look at the simple how-to video tutorial.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Any combination of color and these dies would be beautiful.
  • I recommend just using a little dab of hot glue for each piece.
  • If you plan to suspend this ring in the center of a space rather than against the wall, just add some die cut leafy stems and a sunflower to the back!

Stampin' Up! Cards for Kids- Glimmer Zebra

IMG_3665Today's card is a fun one for littles using the Zany Zebras Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

This set is so much fun and the colorful vibe of the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper makes it a great addition to cards for kids.  Plus, that little touch of shimmer adds a little bit of fun!

Here's the how-to video tutorial for today's card.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card Base is Melon Mambo 5-1/2 x 8-1/2.

  • Melon Mambo Panel- Cut 2 x 5-1/2. After using embossing folder trim down to 5-

    1/4.

  • Whisper White layer is cut 5-3/8 x 4-1/8. Layer for inside is 4 x 5-1/4. You will need

    a scrap piece of Whisper White for die- cutting scalloped square, and for stamping

    and cutting or punching image and sentiment.

  • Artistry Blooms DSP is cut 2 x 5-1/4.

  • Rainbow Glimmer Paper- approx 3 x 3 for die cutting square.

Here is another version of the card in the "blues" for the little guys!  It's just as fun using the same products with a different area of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper, different colors of Stampin' Blends and a different sheet of the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.
