Christmas Treat Boxes Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsake Die
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:

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Christmas Card
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.

My project today features the Faux Silk Technique. I stamped the trees image from Stampin’ Up!’s Winter Woods stamp set with Night of Navy ink onto a piece of white tissue paper. I let it dry completely and then crumbled the tissue paper in my hand. I straightened it a bit (but not too much) and then adhered it to a piece of Whisper White card stock using a glue stick purchased at a dollar store.
I then framed the tree image with a Silver Foil die cut using the Stampin’ Up!’s Stitched Rectangles. The sentiment comes from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set. I also stamped the Birch background stamp with Night of Navy ink onto the Night of Navy card stock, just to add a little dimension.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have questions about this card or the Faux Silk Technique.

Stampin’ Up! Let It Snow
Today, my card is all about the background. It almost looks like one of Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers, but it’s not. I used rubber cement. Yes, the kind from the office supply store.
I started by dropping the rubber cement with a toothpick onto a piece of Whisper White card stock (measuring 5 x 3 ¾ inches). I wanted to make it look like snow. I then let this piece dry thoroughly. For me, that was overnight.
I then used Stampin’ Up!’s Sponge Brayers to layer on Balmy Blue ink. I kept rolling until I got the desired darkness. Then, with a paper towel, I rubbed the rubber cement off of the card stock. I would call this an emboss-resist technique.
For the rest of the card, I used the Snowman Builder Punch to punch out a snowman from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. (I love that some of the images can be punched directly from the Designer Series Paper.) I topped him with a hat punched from the Black Foil Sheets (and arms, too). The “snow” is a piece of the Sparkle Glimmer Paper die cut with a piece from In the Woods. It’s layered on Basic Black and Balmy Blue.
