Hello Stampers!

The Stampin’ Up! Triple-Time Stamping Technique is fun and creates some unique cards. Have you tried it? This card features Stampin’ Up!’s Happy Tails stamp set that can be found in the Annual Catalog. I just love that this set because it offers a coordinating Dog Builder Punch.

Stampin’ Up! Supplies:

  • STAMPS – Happy Tails Stamp Set (150631)
  • PAPER – Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650), Soft Suede Card Stock (120953)
  • INK – Memento Black Ink (132708)
  • OTHER – Dog Builder Punch (148543), Heart Epoxy Droplets (148583), Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Combo (147275), Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo (144601), Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Marker (146874), Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter (144608), Snail Adhesive (104332), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

 

Cutting & Scoring:  

  • Soft Suede Card Stock – 8 ½” x 5 ½” scored in half
  • Very Vanilla Card Stock – 4” x 5 ¼”, 3” x 4 ¼”, 2” x 3 ¼” and Scrap for the dog
  • Soft Suede – 3 ¼” x 4 ½”, 2 ¼” x 3 ½”

 

Instructions:

  • Using a small amount of Snail Adhesive, attach the 3 Very Vanilla panels together as they would be lined up on the card. Note: Don’t use too much adhesive as these will be taken apart after.
  • In the center, stamp the dog and word images. Also, stamp the dog on the scrap piece of Very Vanilla.
  • Randomly stamp the paw prints, bones and heart images. Be sure to over lap the panels for the best effect.
  • Using the Stampin’ Blends Markers, color in the dog on scrap and the heart images. You don’t need to color the dog stamped in the center of the panels. This was just for placement.
  • Gently remove the 3 Very Vanilla panels from each other and reattach them to the coordinating Soft Suede panels with Snail Adhesive.
  • Punch out the dog using the Dog Builder Punch and attach it on top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Christmas Treat Boxes with Mini Curvy Keepsakes

Christmas Treat Boxes Stampin' Up! Mini Curvy Keepsake Die

Christmas Treat Boxes Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsake Die

Hello Stampers!

Forty-nine Christmas treats boxes created with Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Die are ready to go to my husband’s office tomorrow. It’s fun to be able to place a fun treat on everyone’s desk in the morning, especially during the holidays. I’ve tucked a Lindt chocolate inside each one.

This easy peasy die can be found on page 19 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Holiday Catalog. It measures 2-1/8″ x 1-7/8′ x 1-7/8″ — perfect for a small treat or piece of candy. I just love this treat box die because you can create a nice gift with a small sheet of card stock measuring 6 x 6. Simply cut your paper and run it through your die cutting machine with the die. I use a bone folder to soften the fibers, making it easier to fashion the paper into the curvy shape. No adhesive necessary. Once I put the candy inside, I tied a coordinating ribbon around the handle. (I’m going to make everyone work for their treat!)

Not only is this box perfect for the Christmas holiday, but I can see many uses for it. Think about decorating it for Valentine’s Day, creating these as baby shower favors, or as table gifts at a wedding.

It was really fun experimenting with all of Stampin’ Up!’s different papers. In this photo I used the Red Glimmer and Gold Glimmer as well as the sold out Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper. I think the snowman faces (using the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit) are super cute. I cut the box with Whisper White card stock and decorated with the face.

Here are closeups of two of the Christmas treat boxes:

Thanks for stopping by today. See a list of many of the ingredients used to create this project below.

Christmas Card with Stampin’ Up!’s So Many Stars

Stampin' Up! So Many Stars

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Christmas Card

Hello Stampers!

Look what I found in my mailbox: A beautiful Christmas card using Stampin’ Up!’s So Many Stars Bundle. Going to the mailbox this time of year is so much fun! Mixed between the bills and the advertising fliers are Christmas and holiday cards. Some of them include notes and letters letting us know what’s been happening in friends’ and relatives’ lives in the last year. It’s great to catch up!

And, I just love that some of the cards are handmade. This beautiful card was created and sent to me by Angela Schmit. She used Stampin’ Up!’s So Many Stars Bundle which includes a stamp set and the coordinating Stitched Stars Dies. One of the key features of this beautiful card is the silver heat embossing on the largest Night of Navy star. There’s a lot of sparkle on this card with Silver Glimmer Paper stars.

This stamp set can be found in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog. If you like this stamp set, So Many Stars, be sure to get it soon. It will be retiring from the lineup January 2. Purchase the stamp set and the dies as a bundle and receive a 10 percent discount. Please note: the So Many Stars Bundle is being discontinued so get it before it’s gone. (Here’s a link to the bundle in my online store here.) Good news, though, the Stitched Stars Dies, will be carrying over and will be available in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.

I hope you find your mailbox full of cards this holiday season. If you want to receive a card from me, reply to this post or email me at [email protected] I’d love to send you some happy mail.

See below for a list of products Angela used to create this card. Also, be sure to check out Stampin’ Up!’s Discounted Products and the Clearance Rack.

Thanks for stopping by today. I’d love to help you with your crafting needs and inspiration. I teach classes in the Mesa and Queen Creek areas of Arizona and would love to have you join me.
