Tree Angle Free Card Tutorial

In just two short weeks, Stampin’ Up!’s August-December Mini Catalog (formerly the Holiday Catalog) goes live. Beginning August 4, look for a brand-new catalog filled with a host of products for Halloween, fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, winter and more.

(I’m working to get these catalogs distributed. Contact me if you don’t currently have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I’ll get a catalog to you.)

It’s Thursday and time for my Christmas in July feature. See the directions below for making this holiday card. I use a brand-new stamp set called Tree Angle in conjunction with the Stitched Triangles Dies and the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper (a returning favorite).

Stampin’ Friends: Perfectly Plaid

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Perfectly Plaid stamp set for a handmade greeting card and easy gift card holder.

Thanks for joining us on our monthly blog hop. The theme this month is “anything goes.” That fits perfectly with my theme this month. Be sure to visit all of the hops on the blog and leave comments.

Each Thursday this month, I’m featuring a Christmas or holiday themed card using products found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

For this card, I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch. The set and punch carried over from last year’s Holiday Catalog. Now, we can get a jump start on our holiday greeting card making with this awesome and popular duo.

Stampin’ Friends: Perfectly Plaid Card

Stampin' Friends: Perfectly Plaid

In addition to the the stamp set and punch, here are some of the Stampin’ Up! products used to create this card:

  • 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Just Jade)
  • Playful Pets Designer Series Paper
  • Real Red card stock and Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Just Jade Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Red Rhinestones

This is a clean and simple and easy-to-create card. See the end of the post to purchase the products used to create this card.

Perfectly Plaid Gift Coordinating Card Holder

Gift card holders are a popular item for the holidays. I created a coordinating holder using the same products as the card above. To create the holder base, start with a piece of card stock measuring 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Score at 2 1/2″ and 6 1/2″. Fold the bottom piece up, adhering just the sides of the card stock with Tear and Tape to make a pocket for the gift card. I used small Velcro dots to the flap down. Decorate any way you wish.

Daisy Mini Paper Pumpkin Box

Playing with Stampin’ Up!’s Daisy Lane stamp set, the Mini Paper Pumpkin Box, and Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.

Daisy Mini Paper Pumpkin Box

 

In the last week, I’ve been on a binge creating fun projects with Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. I love the versatility and the ability to decorate in a number of ways. A package of 10 sells for $7.50. And, they hold a variety of different items.

See this previous post about sponging the boxes: Sending Sunshine

This post showcases using Designer Series Paper: Playful Pets Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes

Daisy Mini Paper Pumpkin Box

Did you know the Mini Paper Pumpkin Box are a perfect fit for Stampin’ Up!’s note cards and envelopes? These pre-cut and scored card bases (20 for $7) offer a way to create quick and easy cards. Look for them in Whisper White and Very Vanilla. Wouldn’t these make a great hostess gift? Or a fun set to send in the mail?

Daisy Mini Paper Pumpkin Box

I decorated the box with the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and created coordinating cards to go inside. The Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating Daisy Punch made this project quick and easy.
