Warm Hugs Bundle

SU! So Much Happy/ Warm Hugs

Hi Everyone – gosh it is a gorgeous day today… cooler than it has been with a light breeze… this is easy to take. Remember my S-I-L who shattered his elbow? (He’s progressing very well BTW) His birthday was yesterday and I created a fun little gift bag for him using the Warm Hugs bundle, So Much Happy bundle and the Celebration Labels Dies. Let’s take a look at the final product…

Warm Hugs/ So Much Happy gift
#1

He’s a bit of a coffee person and this set just jumped out at me as a perfect little gift for him. He also loves peanut M & Ms – so…. the Heartwarming Hugs Suite is just right. It can be found on pg 8-10 in the Aug- Dec 2020 Mini catalog.

I began by putting the Mini Coffee Carrier together – just unfold and crease… no glue, nothing. But then I decided to fancy it up a bit. I covered the base with some of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP. Then I took a strip of In Good Taste DSP and adhered that over it with liquid glue. I also added a length of Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Ribbon with Tear ‘n Tape, then included a bow with a glue dot. I did the same on the back side without including the bow.

Next I took the Warm Wraps Dies and die cut the various pieces to create a trim around the Mini Coffee Cup. I used the same In Good Taste DSP for the large pieces, then the scallops were die cut from Soft Suede cs. I put these together with liquid glue then slid it onto the cup. Once I had the wrap where I wanted it I slid it down just a bit and drizzled in a bit of liquid glue and slid the wrap back into place again. This keeps it from falling off :O)

Then I did the tag for the cup… circle is die cut from Soft Suede cs, the hexagon in Whisper White. Before die cutting the hexagon, I stamped the the sentiment in Crumb Cake, then the hexagon stamp in Soft Suede. TIP: I had stamped these in reverse order and didn’t get the sentiment centered correctly in the hexagon, disappointment! There a redo…The hexagon is more open and therefore you can see better to center it over the circle sentiment. easy peasy… Die cut the stamped hexagon and affix it to the Soft Suede circle with dimensionals. This then was adhered to the cup also with dimensionals. And bingo the cup was ready. I filled a Gusseted Cellophane Bag with the peanut M & Ms and tied it with Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and put it in the other part of the coffee carrier. Cute, right? I then created another tag, this time the circle was die cut in Mossy Meadow cs. Before die cutting the hexagon, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink and the hexagon stamp in Mossy Meadow ink. It was then attached to the coffee carrier with dimesnionals.

I put all of this (plus the coffee beans) in a Stampin’ Up! cello bag that I had in my stash as a demonstrator. And of course it needed a large something to hold it together…. out came the Celebration Labels Dies¬† – so perfect! I first cut one in the same In Good Taste DSP then another in Soft Suede cs. I then took the Happy Dies and die cut the word HAPPY from the In Good Taste label. Next I stamped the word birthday from the So Much Happy stamp set in Soft Suede ink.This panel was adhered onto the Soft Suede label and it clearly shows through just as I wanted – yay! Then I stapled it all together over the cello bag. Voila! And by the way – he loved it!!!

SU! Warm Hugs Bundle

It’s Monday – and a glorious day! I’m thankful for so much… and one of those I have the opportunity to play with some amazing SU! products. What I did prior to SU! was just muddle around in mediocre stuff. Once I found SU!, there was no turning back. All products are made well; products coordinate. I can’t say enough. So if you are ‘on the fence’, jump in. I’ll help you navigate and create – we could make a great team. Contact me at tlsbrightspot@gmail.com and let’s talk about how to make this happen.

For today’s card I pulled out a stamp set I haven’t used before – yep – from the amazing Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog. It’s called the Warm Hugs Bundle and is actually part of a suite of products that can be found on pages 8-11. I used many of the products from the suite but incorporated some other items as well.

Warm Hugs Bundle #1

I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Then took a panel of Mossy Meadow cs and ran it through the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder twice. This embossing folder is narrow, and probably is not meant to emboss a card front, but I did and think it turned out really well. I took a strip of Heartwarming Hugs DSP cut a banner at the bottom and adhered it with liquid glue to the card front. I took another very narrow strip of this same DSP, cut a side angle at the bottom and slipped it under the right of the banner. Next I took the Mossy Meadow Diagonal Stripe ribbon and wrapped it back and forth on the card front, adhering in various places with Stampin Seal. The sentiment was extra fun and easy to create using the Warm Wraps Dies and the Warm Hugs stamp set. Don’t you love this hexagonal look?

Stamp the sentiment in Real Red ink on a Whisper White scrap. The sentiment comes from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set which is part of the Heartwarming Hugs Suite of products. Stamp the hexagonal decoration around it in Mossy Meadow ink and die cut with the Warm Wraps Dies. Put dimensionals on it and adhere to a circle cut from Pear Pizzazz cs. That circle also is in this die set. The Pear Pizzazz also got dimensionals and was adhered over the Diagonal Stripe Ribbon.¬† Since the card front is complete, let’s move to the inside.

Warm Hugs #2

So, so simple but I love how the inside coordinates with the outside… another strip of DSP adhered to Whisper White panel. This was adhered to Mossy Meadow and attached to the Crumb Cake card base. And voila, your card is complete!

Warm Hugs Bundle #3

For the envelope I stamped a fun little cup in Mossy Meadow, then the steam rising from the cup in Crumb cake. The envelope flap got the same Heartwarming Hugs DSP as the card front. Fait accompli! While this card is done in Holiday-type colors, it could so easily be used as a card of encouragement or a birthday card, and it’s a bit masculine too.
