Little Treats Bundle – Packaging for Every Occasion!

I’ve always loved creating special packaging for gifts so when I saw this new bundle in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog, I knew I’d be buying it.  These little treat containers can be used for every occasion imaginable!  And there are stamps provided for several holidays as well as general events.  I spent some time creating a few samples and wanted to share them with you.

I started with what I think is my favorite from the bunch.  This could be used for a bridal shower or as a wedding favor.  The colors could be coordinated with the bride’s selections for a perfect match.   I used Vellum paper for the container and then used Silver Foil Paper, Peony Garden DSP, Petal Pink cardstock, and Silver Metallic Edged ribbon to pull it all together.

Next, I focused on Halloween.  I haven’t purchased any specific Halloween Designer Series Paper from the new mini catalog yet, but I did have a package of the new Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 DSP.  It had a perfectly appropriate plaid for Halloween!  This project also uses Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White cardstock, Pumpkin Pie Ink, Black Organdy Glitter Ribbon, and Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle to that spider.  A quick, fun Halloween treat!

Take a look at all the beautiful color combinations you’ll find in the Plaid Tidings DSP.  Plaid is popular again and SU! is right on trend with this awesome selection of papers!

Then I moved on to Christmas.  The DSP I used for this project is Tis’ The Season  It has the traditional Christmas colors and there’s plenty of patterns to pick from.  I used Whisper White and Real Red cardstock, Real Red Ink, Real Red, and Shaded Spruce Markers, Dark Shaded Spruce Blends, and my favorite, Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon.  This ribbon is so versatile for 2 very important reasons, the weight of the ribbon makes it a breeze to tie AND, you can use our Blends to color the ribbon!  That’s right, you can match this ribbon to any of your projects by using a coordinating color of Blends.  And because our Blends are alcohol-based, they dry almost immediately.  You could also use our regular Markers, but they take much, much longer to dry.   To achieve the 2 different colors on the sentiment, I used the Real Red and Shaded Spruce markers to color directly on to the stamp and then stamped on to Whisper White cardstock.  I love the flexibility this gives you with sentiments, they don’t have to be all one color!

NOTE! – I inadvertently used a retired product when I made this project.  I used the Snow Accents Puff Paint from last year’s mini Holiday catalog, thinking that it had been carried over to this year.  I apologize for the oversight!  But if you still have any in your stash, it really does finish off the Santa hat 😉

Tis’ The Season 6 x 6 Designer Series Papers

And my last project using this bundle is to show you that you do have some options when creating the treat container itself.   You can see this much better in the video, but to create this one, I cut off the front top of the container.  I took the piece that I cut off and then adhered it to the back, covering the contrasting DSP pattern that was showing.  I could have just left it off but I didn’t care for the contrast of the opposite side of the DSP.  For the stamped image, I did the same thing I did on the Christmas tag, I used different colors of our markers to color directly on to the stamp.  I love how it turned out.  I used some coordinating shades of Blends and colored a few of our Basic Pearls to add a little bit of bling to the image.

The opening for the treats is 2 x 2 x 3/4″ and I’ve found there are all sorts of treats that would fit in there.  I practiced with individually wrapped York Peppermint Patties. Mini Twix bars, and individually wrapped Dove chocolates.  And I’m certain Hershey’s Nuggets would work as well, I just didn’t have any in my stash to try.

Here’s my video, which gives a few little tips about die cutting the container, as well as showing you how the projects go together.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Happy Stamping!

Dove of Hope Bundle – My 1st Christmas card of 2020!

Yes, it’s hard to believe but I’ve actually made a Christmas card already!  And for someone who has perfected the art of procrastination, I shocked myself by even thinking of Christmas at this point in time 🙂  I recently participated in a swap with other Stampin’ UP! demonstrators and this was the card I submitted for my swap.  Swaps allow us to receive several cards using lots of different stamp sets so that we can build our collection to share with customers.  They are also great sources of inspiration!

Here’s a picture of the bundle that I used.  The level of detail in the dies is just amazing!  And I used our Shimmer White Cardstock which really makes them stand out even more.

 

Here’s a few more pics of the card.  I’m really pleased with how it turned out and hope you enjoy it as well!

The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Peony Garden Suite

Some images are timeless and endure through the changes of years and styles. The Peony Garden Suite is a perfect example of timeless elegance. From simple stamping to over-the-top, this suite covers all the bases. Use traditional colors, stamping and die-cutting to create a peony that looks like it came right out of grandma’s garden or create a simple modern, monochrome look with the flower stamped in a neutral color on Whisper White. I think you’ll find yourself reaching for this suite for many occasions.

This lovely tutorial includes two ways to watercolor and uses the Peony Dies to build a gorgeous 3-D flower. Let’s make something beautiful!

Happy Stamping!!

Celebrate Sunflowers – Fun Fold Gift Card Holder

Hello, and thanks for popping by today 🙂  I wanted to share with you a card I recently made as part of our NC Demonstrators Stamp Along day.  This is our second time doing this on our FB page and it’s been a lot of fun!  Several demonstrators volunteer to do either a live video, a pre-recorded video, or share a PDF of a project they’ve made.  I chose to make a card that can double as a gift cardholder.  And I used our Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle, the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP and several of the new 2020-2022 In Colors (that coordinate with the DSP).

This card can be made with the pocket for a gift card/cash, or without.  You can also dress up the inside of the card a little more by adding additional DSP panels to cover the white inside the card, it’s entirely up to you!

Take a look at the video for additional tips for making this card 🙂

When Life Hands You Lemons…

Sometimes in life, the best-laid plans just get blown away.  I was supposed to be attending one of our NC Demo Quarterly events in Hendersonville, NC.  And as you might have guessed, that event was canceled due to Corona Virus restrictions.  BUT, one of our amazing demonstrations, Martinette Horner,  coordinated an event that allowed us to still get together virtually, and share some wonderful live videos, pre-recorded videos, and tutorials.  I did a pre-recorded video to share with our NC Demo group and thought I would share it with you as well.

One of my favorite suites in the new Annual catalog is the Peony Garden Suite.  There’s so much about it that caught my attention, the beautiful images in the stamps set, the dies, the DSP, and I especially love the color combination it uses, Petal Pink, Gray Granite, Basic Gray, and White.  I’ve always been a fan of the pink and gray combo.

I was initially intimidated when I saw the dies for the flowers.  I just felt it was going to be complicated, but I was so wrong!  The assembly of the flower was incredibly easy, as you’ll see when you watch the video.  I really love how the Peony looks cut from our beautiful Champagne Foil paper.  The possibilities are endless with what you can make.  I’ve included a tutorial for this card as well.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Birds and Branches

 

Happy Sunday, Everyone!  Today I wanted to show you a card I recently created for an NC Demonstrator Swap.  The swap requirements were to use new products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  And if you aren’t familiar with what a swap is, it’s when a group of people sign up to create a card based on specific criteria.  We are told the total number of cards to make and they are mailed to the person who is hosting the swap.  Once they’ve collected all the cards from the participants, they sort all the cards and mail one design each back to everyone.  So we end up with a variety of card samples to share at our classes or use for blog posts.  It’s a really fun way to add cards to our collections without us each making them ourselves.

My card featured the new Birds and Branches set and some other products from the new catalog (you can see all the products below).  I used the circle die first on a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ paper.  Then I used my Blends to color the leaves and berries.  Once that was done, I took that layer of card stock and ran it through my embossing machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I just love the look that the texture gives to the branches and berries!

I then laid that layer over the front of my Thick Whisper White card stock (4 1/4″ x 11″, scored @ 5 1/2″), and using a pencil, I placed a small dot at the bottom of the circle.  This was to give me guidance as to where to stamp the nest.  I stamped the nest using Crumb Cake ink on the front of the folder Thick Whisper White base.  Next, I took a length of the White Crinkle Ribbon and wrapped it around the die-cut and embossed layer and tied a bow, then attached that layer to the card front using dimensionals.  The bird was stamped with Rococo Rose ink on Blushing Bride card stock and then die cut and also attached with dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped using the Many Mates stamp set and then die cut using the Tasteful Labels die.  That was attached to the front with dimensionals as well.  The final step was to add some Wink of Stella to the berries and that was my finished card!

I hope you enjoyed my card 🙂

Happy Stamping!
