The Gift Wrapped stamp set and coordinating Gift Bow Builder Punch are great options. They were available in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. Many products from this catalog are being retired, including this stamp set and punch.

Easy Handmade Sticky Notepad Holder

Are you looking for an easy-to-create teacher gift? Or stocking stuffer? This easy handmade sticky note holder fits the bill perfectly. I list directions below. Be sure to watch the video at the end of the post for visual reference.

Easy Handmade Sticky Note Holder

Start with a piece of card stock measuring 8 inches by 3 1/4 inches. Score at 2 inches, 2 1/2 inches, 5 1/2, inches, and 6 inches. Fold on the score lines. Stampin’ Up! offers 50 different colors of card stock. Imagine the possibilities! Choose a coordinating Designer Series Paper or vice versa.

Place the sticky note pad in the middle of the card stock using Stampin’ Seal+ or Tear and Tape.

Adhere the Designer Series Paper pieces measuring 3 inches by 1 3/4 inches to the front card stock flaps.

Select a stamp set sentiment to adorn the holder. For the above holder, I used the “Smile” sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set and the Boho Indigo Designer Series Paper.

Use self-adhesive velcro dots to create a closure for the pad.

The holder below features Stampin’ Up!’s Christmas Gleaming stamp set, the coordinating Gleaming Ornament Punch Pack, and the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper. These three products retire at the end of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog period. This means you won’t be able to purchase them from Stampin’ Up! (Just a note: At the time of this post Wednesday, December 9), the punches and Designer Series Paper are discounted during the 2020 Year-End Closeout Sale. (The Year-End Closeout is while supplies last or through January 4.)

Happy Thanksgiving in Gold

I’m sharing a Thanksgiving card in gold for today’s Team Stamp It’s October 2020 Blog Hop.

Welcome to our monthly blog hop where members of Tami White’s Stampin’ Up! talented team share a collection of cards and projects. This month’s theme is Thanksgiving and fall. Be sure to visit each blog and leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest. One person will win a Boho Indigo Medley Card Kit. Look for the list of blog hoppers at the end of this post.

Happy Thanksgiving in Gold

Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Cards and Envelopes provided the inspiration for my card today. Find them on page 51 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. You receive a package of 10 cards and coordinating metallic gold envelopes for $10. These Very Vanilla bases feature gold detailing around the edges, perfect to frame a photo or stamped image. They help you create quick and easy cards that are beautiful, too!

To make the leaf accents, I grabbed the leaf from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. I heat embossed the leaf with Gold Embossing Powder. With the sponge daubers, I then added different colors of ink to the embossed image. The colors used include: Crushed Curry, Blackberry Bliss, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive. I wiped away any excess ink with a paper towel.

With the coordinating leaf die from the Nature’s Roots Dies, I die cut with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and adhered three leaves to the card with Glue Dots.

The sentiment comes from the Banner Year stamp set and is stamped with Blackberry Bliss. The Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels add some blingy accents.

Happy Thanksgiving in Gold
