Happy New Year 2021

Happy New Year 2021

I know I’m looking forward to putting 2020 behind me and moving onto the new year. And, I wanted my new year’s card to reflect the joy and anticipation of a fresh start! In the past, I’ve gravitated toward the black and silver combinations and black and gold combinations.

Today’s card features one of the many designs from the Playing with Patterns 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Find it in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. The sheet I chose speaks “confetti” and celebration.

I also used an assortment of other Stampin’ Up! products:

  • Nothing’s Better Than photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Love You More Than Dies. (Purchase these two items as a bundle and save 10 percent.)
  • Playful Alphabet Dies
  • “This Calls For” sentiment from So Sentimental stamp set. (Just a hint: I used the Night of Navy Stampin’ Writer marker from the Neutrals Stampin’ Writer Markers collection to color just the words I wanted to use.)
  • Nature’s Thoughts Dies
  • Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels

I hope you’ve enjoyed my new year’s card! Please leave me a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest. Visit all of the blogs on the hop to gain inspiration for your own paper crafting projects.

Congratulations to last month’s winner: Michael Haugland.

Easy Wine Bottle Tag

Easy Wine Bottle Tag

The holiday countdown begins! Just 10 days until Christmas Day of 2020. You may still be purchasing and wrapping gifts. Or, maybe you’re finished. You might be baking, and you might be creating and sending holiday cards.

And, you might receive a last-minute invitation. Or need a last-minute quick gift. Wine, liqueurs, and sparkling water make great host or spur-of-the-moment gifts. A quick and easy wine bottle tag spruces up the gift. Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating products make this quick, fun, and festive.

Today, I share two different tags. Many of the products can be found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog or the holiday mini Be sure to watch the video for visual instructions.

Easy Wine Bottle Tag

  • Basic card stock color of your choosing: 8 inches x 3 1/4 inches, scored at 2 1/4 inches on the horizontal side.
  • A piece of coordinating Designer Series paper cut at 5 x 3 inches. I used Heartwarming Hugs for the tag on the left and Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper for the tag on the right.
  • 1 /2 inch circle punch to create the hole for hanging.
  • Detailed Trio punch for rounding the edges.
  • Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch (left) and Christmas Gleaming and Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (right).

Please note: Many of the products in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog retire. Stampin’ Up! announced a Year-End Closeout Sale last week. Check the list which includes some products up to 50 percent off. But supplies are limited, so some availability may be limited.

5 Boho Indigo Card Samples

Today, I’m showing you 5 Boho Indigo Card Samples.

5 Boho Indigo Card Samples

Look on page 9 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It features a gorgeous medley of products called Boho Indigo. I love Night of Navy (and now Misty Moonlight, too). The 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper calls to me. (In fact, I’ve already ordered a refill.)


Boho Indigo Product Medley

The medley sells for $70 and includes a host of really fun elements:

  • An 11-piece photopolymer stamp set with four sentiments: Such Happy News, Thank You, A Bunch of Birthday Love to You, and Sorry You’re Feeling Blue.
  • The 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies.
  • 48 sheets of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (8 each of 6 double-sided designs).
  • Very Vanilla 6 x 6 dry embossed sheets (2 each of 3 designs).
  • Die cuts with gold foil accents (2 each of 3 designs).
  • Night of Navy 1/2 inch Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon (10 yards).
  • Very Vanilla/gold 1/4 inch pleated ribbon (10 yards).
  • Paper flowers (20 each in 2 sizes).

Get a refill kit (which includes the designer series paper, the dry embossed sheets, six sheets of die cuts, and 40 flowers) for $23.

You will need Night of Navy and/or Misty Moonlight ink, card stock (Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight and/or Very Vanilla or Whisper White) and your choice of adhesives to get started.

Other Samples

Once I started creating, the ideas just kept flowing. I’m sharing just 5 Boho Indigo card samples today. At first, I tried to create with what came in the medley. That can be done easily. But with a table full of scraps, I quickly added other elements to stretch this medley even further. Some of the items I pulled in include Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Foil, additional die cuts, Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack, a couple of punches, and additional sentiments.

This medley provides such fun and complementary products. I have a ton of other project ideas in my head and can’t wait to create them on paper.

I hope you enjoy the samples. Please let me know if you have any questions about this medley or any other paper crafting products. I’m happy to help. Click on any of the graphics below to shop from my online store 24/7.
