Happy New Year 2021
I know I’m looking forward to putting 2020 behind me and moving onto the new year. And, I wanted my new year’s card to reflect the joy and anticipation of a fresh start! In the past, I’ve gravitated toward the black and silver combinations and black and gold combinations.
Today’s card features one of the many designs from the Playing with Patterns 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Find it in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. The sheet I chose speaks “confetti” and celebration.
I also used an assortment of other Stampin’ Up! products:

Sharing a birthday card using Stampin’ Up!’s So Sentimental stamp set.
Yikes, I peeked at July’s calendar! A ton of birthdays popped up! And, two of them take place July 1.
What do you do when you need a bunch of cards in a hurry? You use a sketch, a blank sample, found online or on Pinterest. Then, you fill in the blanks. So easy!
I’m using this current sketch.
So Sentimental Birthday
I grabbed Stampin’ Up”s So Sentimental stamp set and coordinating Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The So Sentimental Bundle is $48.50. Read below to see how you can get it free through June 30.
Here’s what I used to make this quick and easy birthday card, perfect for men and women.
- Calypso Coral card stock base, cut at 5/12 inches by 8 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches
- Playing with Patterns 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, cut at 3 x 4 1/4
- Night of Navy, cut at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
- Whisper White scrap die cut with label from Stitched So Sweetly
- Night of Navy 1 x 5, trimmed with Banner Triple Punch on each end
- Basic pearls colored with Calypso Coral and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends
This design helped me create a stack of cards to get in the mail.

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring a wedding wishes card and gift card holder!
Thanks for joining us on this blog hop today. We’re showcasing cards for grads, dad, babies, and brides. Visit all of the blogs to get a host of creative ideas for upcoming celebrations. All of the links are listed after the project descriptions. Please leave a comment; we love to hear what you think of our creations.
The Wedding Wishes Card
I really wanted to use Stampin’ Up!’s Detailed Heart Die, purchased with the intent of creating Valentine cards. But that didn’t happen! I couldn’t let the season pass without using this beautiful die.
The card features:
- Detailed Hearts Die with Gold Foil
- Gold heat embossed sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set
- Die cuts from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies
A comprehensive shopping list is included at the end of the post, after the list of hoppers.
Wedding Wishes Gift Card Holder
This is such an easy gift card holder to create. (I had forgotten all about this style.) Here’s how it goes together.
- Start with one of Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes. I used Very Vanilla for this project.
- Fold the envelop in half and score.
- With the flap facing you, use a Paper Snips to trim the top right corner.
- Moisten the remaining flap and seal closed. The right side now becomes the holder for the gift card.
- Decorate the front and inside cover.
Here are some of the materials I used to create the gift card holder:
- Very Vanilla envelope
- Very Vanilla panel embossed with the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder
- Gold Foil Heart die cut with a heart from the Stitched Be Mine Framelits
- Heat-embossed (gold) sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings
- Classic Label Punch
- Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder
- Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon

Sharing treat bags using Stampin’ Up!’s So Sentimental stamp set for class this week.
One of the reasons I love being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is sharing the love of creating with rubber stamps, ink, and paper with others. I hold classes here in Mesa, Arizona, as a way to share my love of rubber stamping, make new friends and connections, and build a community of crafters.
For each event I hold, I give participants a different treat or favor. These are some of my favorite things to make! The featured treat today is created using the 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags found on page 33 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. You receive 25 bags for just $7. I’ve included some chocolate bars in mine, but there are many items that would fit well in these decorated bags, such as small hand lotions, lipsticks and chapsticks, peanuts, and more.
Here are some of the other Stampin’ Up! ingredients I used for the So Sentimental Treat Bags:
- Yummilicious stamp from the So Sentimental stamp set (page 20-January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
- Stitched So Sweetly Dies (page 20-January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
- Scallop Tag Topper Punch
- Banner Triple Punch
- Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper
- Mint Macaron 1/8-inch Sheer Linen Ribbon
- Stampin’ Write Markers
You’ll notice the image has two different colors? How did I achieve that look? I colored directly onto the stamp using Stampin’ Write markers. It’s so easy, and it lets you have a multi-colored image.
I’ve included a shopping list below. Each graphic will take you directly to my online store.
There’s still time to take advantage of Stampin’ Up!’s best promotion of the year. Choose free product with minimum purchases of $50. Look for a lot of fun items including exclusive stamp sets and Designer Series Paper.
And, good news! New Sale-A-Bration items become available Tuesday, March 3. Watch for a post that day where I’ll include a link to the new brochure. The new offerings include stamp sets, foil Designer Series Paper, and textured vellum.
Just a note: Some items have been so popular and are sold out. If you see something you really want, I encourage you to get it now before it’s gone.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to help you with any crafting questions or projects!
