Give Thanks

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos Bundle

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Bundle

Hello Stampers!

November is seen as the month of gratitude, giving thanks for those wonderful things in our lives. I’m thankful for the gift of Stampin’ Up!, being introduced to the craft about twenty-five years ago.

Stampin’ Up!’s Harvest Hellos Bundle has helped me create cards and small treat packaging to celebrate this month. The stamp set and coordinating punch can be used both as an apple and a pumpkin. Here, Dawn Seelhoff has created a card for offering thanks, focusing on the colors of Pretty Peacock and Gray Granite.

Come to Gather Thank You

Hello Stampers!

I initially purchased three packages of Stampin’ Up!’s 12 x 12 Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. It’s filled with an array of fall themes and images, but I never thought I’d use it all. Well, I did. And, I’m waiting for two additional packages to arrive next week. Today, I wanted to create some thank you cards to send to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and was forced to create something with just the scraps I had. This is the result.

I CASEd the layout and design from a card I received from Kathryn Collison for World Card Sending Week. In addition to the Come to Gather DSP, I used the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia and the limited-time only Gold Shimmer Ribbon. The colors of the card stock are Merry Merlot and Early Espresso. Just a quick and easy card that’s oh so pretty in person.

Harvest Hellos and Chocolate

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hello

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hello

Hello Everyone!

Happy Saturday morning, November 2, 2019! It’s bright and sunny here and heading toward the mid-80s in Mesa, Arizona. It hasn’t been difficult getting used to the weather here! I’ve been out and about attending networking groups to meet new people and make connections. I try to bring a fun item to share made with Stampin’ Up! products, and, of course chocolate.

These Ghirardelli treats are my go-to item. They are quick and easy and cute and can be dressed up in any way for any holiday or event. This one features the stamp set Harvest Hellos and the Apple Builder Punch with the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

Start with a strip of your favorite Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/2 inches by just under 2 inches. Score at 2 5/8 and 2 7/8 inches. Trim both ends with Stampin’ Up!’s Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Fold on the score lines. Insert your chocolate. I usually add a little adhesive to keep the chocolate in place. Close the package with coordinating ribbon and decorate the front.

For my meetings, I package in a cello bag and include either a business card or a free class pass. Everyone loves a little chocolate!

Harvest Hellos Cider Packet

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos

Hello Stampers!

I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of these apple cider treat packets. I’ve given them out at a team meeting and at a host of events throughout the month of September. They were so easy to put together. This packet uses Stampin’ Up!’s Harvest Hellos stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder Punch. What’s cool about this set and punch is that it can be both an apple and a pumpkin. That makes it very versatile.

Here are the steps I used:

1. Garden Green card stock cut at 6 inches x 3 1/2 inches, scored at three, and folded. Stapled sides.

2. Adhered a piece of Designer Series Paper sized 3 1/4 by 2 3/4 to front of packet. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Garden Lane Designer Series Paper here.

3. Next, I adhered a circle from the Sttiched Shapes framelits die cut from Garden Green.

4. I stamped the apple in Garden Green ink onto Mint Macaron card stock and added the sentiment from Country Home. Punched it out using the Apple Builder Punch.

5. Added an Early Espresso stem and a Mint Macaron leaf from the punch.

6. Popped it all up with a dimensional.

I found the the cider packets at the local Fry’s grocery store here in Mesa.

A Wicked Halloween!

Stampin' Up! Wonderfully Wicked

Stampin’ Up! Wonderfully Wicked

Hello Stampers!

I don’t know if there’s anyone who enjoys Halloween more than the creator of today’s card! Shelley McVey is one of my team members, and she is crazy about this holiday and everything associated with it. She created this fun card using a variety of products from Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog.

I’m especially intrigued with her creative use of the Coffin Treat Boxes. She cut one up, traced it onto black card stock, and used Shimmer White embossing powder to decorate it. She also added some fun elements from past catalogs including the punched bats and the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper.

The graphics below show all of the products Shelley used to create this “wicked” Halloween card. Click on any of the graphics to shop from my online store 24/7.
