Snow Globe Christmas Ornament Gift Set

Snow Globe Christmas Ornament Gift Set

What?????? 74 days until Christmas! Do you need a special ornament for 2019? I’m so happy to share my Snow Globe Christmas Ornament Set with you guys.  Next weekend, we kick off the 2019 Margie Bourgeois Memorial Christmas Community Service Project. This service benefits the residents of the Riverbend Nursing Home. We’ll be creating 150 gift sets, one for each of our friends at Riverbend.

When I received my  2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, I quickly flipped through the pages to find my inspiration for the 2019 Riverbend Ornament. This will be our 7th Annual Community Service Project.

My Snow Globe Christmas Ornament Gift Set was created with the Still Scenes bundle. I love that it is interactive. The globe is filled with Snowflake Sequins and Ice Stampin’ Glitter. The beautiful gift set is the perfect way to present the ornament and card.

Let’s take a closer look at the presentation box and card. Both of which are super easy and quick to create. Gotta love that!

Our acetate card boxes are great for packaging card sets, but this time, I’ll be using it to gift the Snow Globe Christmas Ornament and card. Because the boxes are pre-scored they are very easy to assemble. Not to mention, you get ten (10) boxes in a package for only $7.

Our fabulous new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint really brought those Christmas trees to life. It’s easy to use and goes a long way.  Just scribble onto the die cut, heat with the heat tool and watch the magic happen. I’m so happy to share with you my FREE video tutorial. In this tutorial, I’ll teach you how to create the entire gift set. Grab a cup of hot chocolate, sit back, relax and enjoy!

If you like all things shiny and copper, be sure to add the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to your next order. You can thank me later. Oh, and because you’ll want to make yours just like mine (hahahahaha!!), add a package of the copper foil paper. 

Holiday Gift Card Holder, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

All that gorgeous texture, on the copper foil, was created with our new Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder. It creates the perfect backgrounds.

Holiday Gift Card Holder, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because the little pocket is the perfect size for your gift card, you won’t have to do any wrapping. That’s a time saver. I included even more bits of that gorgeous DSP on the inside to dress things up.

So Many Stars Christmas Card

So Many Stars Christmas Card

Welcome! So happy that you’ve stopped by today. I’m excited to share my So Many Stars Christmas card with you guys. Because the bundle includes a 23-piece die set and 21-piece stamp set, it’s the perfect addition to your craft supply stash.

So Many Stars, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

My color palette was inspired by the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. One side of the 12′ x 12″ DSP is foiled in copper. Then, I decided to slip the DSP into my Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder. WOW, was that a great decision. It added to the texture and interest and was the perfect backdrop for that stunning 3D star.

So Many Stars, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because the die set has so many dies, with lots of configurations, I decided to stack things up. The So Many Stars stamp set is a photomolymer set. That makes it super easy to line up a couple of the layering stamps in the set. 

So Many Stars, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Now really, don’t you think those little accents copper die cuts are special? What makes them even more special, is that there are 5 identical dies in the set. That means you can cut out all the details in one pass through the die cutting machine, woohoo!!!! But wait, there is another reason to order the So Many Stars bundle! Place your order during October, 2019 and use my host code, FA9CDKTH. Then your name will go on my prize wheel. All the details for my Birthday Month Ordering Giveaway can be found here.

So Many Stars, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I finished things off my stamping my sentiment in Pretty Peacock and enhancing it a little with stars stamped with Celestial Copper Ink.  Want to see how easy it is to use the So Many Stars bundle? I’ve got another FREE video tutorial.

Snowman Season Fun Fold

Snowman Season Fun Fold

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! That’s the song that I kept hearing when creating this Snowman Season Fun Fold.  This card just makes me happy. 

Snowman Season Fun Fold, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Coordination is one of the key elements in design. Stampin’ Up! has knocked it out the park with the Let it Snow Suite. The Snowman Season bundle is part of the suite. And one of the best parts….. You don’t need a die cutting machine to create this super cute card.

Snowman Season Fun Fold, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

If you don’t want to create the fun fold, you could always use the Snowman Season bundle to create a standard card front just like this one. The Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper is a fun winter themed paper. One side has basic patterns for year-round use; the other side has glittery winter images. Some images coordinate with the Snowman Builder Punch. Woohoo!!

Snowman Season Fun Fold, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The fold is really simple, just a few score lines. Because you’ve created four areas to decorate, we can throw a snowman party. Each panel highlights one of the snowmen in the set. One of the snowmen is even juggling snowballs. And, did you see all that dimension? It’s created with our new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. A little goes a long way, so you’ll have this for lots of projects.

Snowman Season Fun Fold, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Including the little “coal” buttons really brought this guy to life. But, if you run out, I can show you an alternative. Use our new Shimmery Crystal Effects along with the Ice Stampin’ Glitter to create crystal buttons.

Snowman Season Fun Fold, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

There’s even a panel on the back of the card for your sentiment. But, remember, you could move this panel to the inside to create a standard card. That’s two ideas in one design!

Snowman Season Fun Fold, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Here’s even more ideas, straight from a page in our new Holiday Catalog. Don’t have a catalog? Well, you need one!! Contact me today. I’ll send you a complimentary copy.
