Christmas in July: Tree Angle

Welcome to Christmas in July featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Tree Angle stamp set.

Christmas in July: Tree Angle

Can you believe it’s the end of July? I’m sad my Christmas in July features are coming to an end. I enjoy the thought of preparing for the holidays and cooler days ahead. (Especially here in Arizona where the high is 111 degrees.)

During the first weeks of Christmas in July, I focused on using products readily available in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Click back to view the posts and get some holiday inspiration.

And, now, I’m excited to creating with goodies from Stampin’ Up!’s August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. It goes live Tuesday, August 4. Look for a host of brand-new products for paper crafting for Halloween, fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, winter, and more. (I’m delivering and mailing catalogs. If you don’t currently work with a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I’d love to get a catalog to you.)

This card features the Tree Angle photopolymer stamp set (#153442/$17) and Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (#153492/$11.50) from the mini catalog. It also features the Stitched Triangles (#152710/435), Shimmery White card stock (#101910/$10), and Red Rhinestones (#146924/$7) from the Annual Catalog.

Here’s another quick and easy card I designed with this set and dies. I couldn’t resist the Red and Green Foil Sheets!

Sending Sunshine

Today, I’m showing you how I’m sending sunshine Stampin’ Up! style!

Sendng Sunshine

In case you hadn’t heard, a new trend is here: Sharing Sunshine (#ShareSushine). You fill a box with any yellow items you can find, and send it to someone to let them know you’re thinking of them. Stampin’ Up!’s June monthly crafting kit, Paper Pumpkin, focused on sharing sunshine. The kit contents, delivered in a bright yellow box, contained cards that featured sunshine and caring. We created the cards and decorated the box and sent it to a friend.

Unfortunately, the kit sold out. But you can still share sunshine using Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. A package of 10 boxes costs just $7.50. Decorate them any way you like, fill with goodies, and send.

Sending Sunshine

The boxes come in plain white. I colored the box above with Stampin’ Up!”s Sponge Brayers and Balmy Blue ink, layering on the ink until I received the desired look. I didn’t strive for a perfect solid color; I wanted it to look like sky with a few wispy clouds overhead.

To create the sun, I used the Stitched Shapes Dies (large circle) and the Stitched Triangles (itty bitty triangle) to die cut the images from one sheet of the Playful Patterns 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment from the June Paper Pumpkin directly on the box using Memento ink. Don’t have that stamp set? Stampin’ Up!’s Under My Umbrella and Sending Sunshine also have sayings appropriate for a box of sunshine.

I added a piece of yellow tissue paper and a handful of fun, yellow items. Ready to send to a friend!

Take a look at this YouTube video showing how I created the box. (It’s a replay of a Facebook Live.)
