L is for Lights for the Pals Blog Hop

Oct-Blog-Hop 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “My Favorite Season”  – showcasing our favorite stamps and supplies for our holiday project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I’ve been sharing holiday projects for each letter of the alphabet in my ABC Holiday 2019 Series. (Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss out on holiday ideas from A to Z!) Today I have two fun projects to “light” up the holidays!  No matter what’s your favorite holiday, the All- Around Wreath Dies work for every season!

My first project is a fun fold card that lights up with a battery operated votive candle.

I used the Tidings All Around Stamp Set and All-Around Wreath Die to create this card. (You can purchase these as a bundle and save 10%)! This card would look great on a mantel, bookcase, or end table. I love how it lights up!

Here’s a few more pictures so you can see how it looks closed and how it opens. It’s a trifold card that sits up like a tent.

I sandwiched a piece of vellum between the wreaths so the light shines through without actually seeing the votive candle. I decorated the wreath with bulbs using the Bulb Builder Punch.  The Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice to compliment the punched lights. This was so much fun to make!

The best part of any holiday season is spending time with family & friends! I love to make little table favors for each holiday and the All- Around Wreath Dies make a fun and easy project to light up your holiday table.

I made these for our Thanksgiving table but you could easily do the same for Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, etc. These dies are versatile for year round use! I love them! I I watercolored Shimmery White cardstock with the Aqua Painter before cutting the die. It was quick & easy!

One of the things we love to do as a family during the holiday season is drive around and look at all the beautiful lights. Many neighborhoods in our area have huge displays of lights and music and it’s always fun to see the different displays. Do you go all out with lights? Which do you prefer… colored lights or white lights?

If you would like to make these “lighted” projects check back tomorrow for the complete tutorials because….More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 13th when we showcase projects with layers of DSP and embellishments for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun!

A Wicked Fold for the Pals Blog Hop


Welcome to the Pals October 2017 Blog Hop featuring some very “Wicked Folds”. Thank you so much for joining us today. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Stampin’ Pretty Pals treat you with their wickedly folded projects. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Stampin Up Carols of Christmas Fun Fold Shadowbox Christmas Card Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love fun fold cards and this Shadowbox is “wicked” easy to make!  Start with a piece of cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11. Score on the long side at 1/2, 1, 4 1/2, 5, 5 1/2, 6, 6 1/2, 10, 10 1/2. Cut a shape from the large panel. (I used the Layering Squares Framelits for today’s card.)

Fold along the score lines back and forth accordion style. I stamped my sentiment from the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set on a 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP from the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the inside panel. This sentiment is perfect for this DSP…if you look closely the music and lyrics are from the song, Deck the Halls. Stampin Up Carols of Christmas Fun Fold Shadowbox Christmas Card Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Add Tear & Tape as shown and adhere the card together. I love the depth you get with this card…perfect for adding a mini ornament embellishment! I simply tied the ornament to a piece of Silver Metallic Thread and adhered with a glue dot.  I punched a red berry from the Holly Berry Builder Punch to place on top of the glue dot. The ornament looks so pretty hanging down!

The music and sentiment was just calling out for some holly so I stamped the bough from the Holly Berry Happiness Stamp Set twice on Garden Green cardstock and fussy it cut it with my Paper Snips.  I adhered to the base of my shadowbox with glue dots.  I stamped and punched more holly and curled them before adhering with glue dots to give the bough some dimension. A simple bow made with the Quilted Christmas Ribbon and some red berries (Rhinestone Jewels colored with a red Sharpie marker) was the finishing touch.

This would be a perfect card to give with an ornament.  (You can click HERE to see an ornament gift box I shared previously or HERE to see another Shadowbox card idea.)
