Candy Canes Treat Packet

Candy Canes Treat Packet

Love this super easy treat packet! Perfect for teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, and treats for friends. I was inspired by a video by Katherine Themann back in August. So many fun ways to change these up with different patterned papers, rubber stamps, holidays and themes. Be sure to watch my video below showing visually how these go together.

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Candy Canes background stamp found in Stampin’ Up!’s July-December Mini Catalog. See this post for other card samples.

Candy Canes Treat Packet

  • Start with piece of Real Red card stock measuring 10 inches by 3 1/4 inches.
  • Score at 1 inch, 4 3/4 inches, and 6 1/4 inch. Fold.
  • Decorate the front and the back of the packet with either stamped card stock (like the Candy Canes) or Designer Series Paper. You need two pieces that measure 3 inches x 3 1/2 inches and one piece that measure 3 inches by 3/4 inches.
  • Add a sentiment and embellish.
  • Trim three inches from one of Stampin’ Up!’s 3 x 9 gusseted cellophone bags. Fill with candy of choice. (This is the best part! — and eating the extras!) Adhere the bag to the inside of the treat packet.
  • Close the treat package with self-adhesive Velcro.
  • Top off with complementary ribbon.

Enjoy a couple of other samples.

When I got my first glimpse of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2021 Mini Catalog, this Candy Canes background stamp made the top of the list. Imagine my surprise, when I came home from the incentive trip with this as a gift.

So, I started to play and just let my imagination roll with it. Be sure to read the entire post to see other card samples and a video that shows the samples and explains them in more detail. In the video, I reveal a Stamparatus tip to help you with background stamps.

Hats Off for Summer

Hats Off for Summer

Thanks for joining us today! Welcome to Team Stamp It’s June blog hop. This month,The r we feature cards and projects with a summer and/or patriotic theme. Be sure to visit all of the talented stampers participating in the hop. Leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest. You could win a Hello Dear Friend card kit.

Hats Off for Summer

My card features the super fun Hats Off Bundle found on page 47 of Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog. Actually, I only used the smaller hat die to convey my summer and patriotic theme. The sentiment comes from A Good Man stamp set (located on page 46).

I’ve had a lot of fun creating a variety of hats — for both men and women — with this bundle. View this blog post for a few other ideas and a video.

Hats Off to Summer Card

The red, white, and blue theme, combined with the baseball hats, gives off a great summer vibe. After all, summer and baseball are synonymous.

In addition to the Hats Off Bundle and A Good Man, I used the following Stampin’ Up! products:

  • Basic White, Real Red, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake Card Stock
  • Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Circles from the Picture This dies

Sweet Ice Cream Shaker Card

Sweet Ice Cream Shaker Card

With the start of June, summer officially begins! What treat says summer? Ice cream. (Who I am kidding? Anytime of the year is a good time for ice cream!)

In fact, June 7 marked National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. I created a fun shaker card to share using Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.

This bundle first appeared in Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. The good news: It’s also found a spot in the brand-new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

However, a few products used to create the Sweet Ice Cream shaker card (card design inspired by Kim Allen) retire at the end of June (or while supplies last). These include:

  • Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper
  • Blackberry Bliss Stripe Ribbon
  • Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles

As of today’s post, these items are all still available. Click here to view the Last Chance Product List. Some items offered at discounts up to 50 percent off. While supplies last. Another great way to shop the last chance list is to go directly to my online store at and view the discounted items there.

Sweet Ice Cream Shaker Card

  • Sentiment piece: 1/2 inch x 2 3/4 inches

Spiral Dye Birthday Card

Spiral Dye Birthday Card

“On trend” accurately describes the new offerings in Stampin’ Up!’s 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Each year, the designers diligently research what’s in and what’s not. The colors and designs come to life in the form of new rubber stamps, ink, papers, and more. 

The tie dye scene is back, and I see it all over in an array of clothing items and more. The new Spiral Dye background stamp offers a fun way to replicate this fun and colorful look on paper. Find the cling stamp on page 118. It sells for $17.

I used it to create the focal point for birthday cards. This technique works best with a Stamparatus. Align your paper on the Stamparatus. I used the Basic White. Ink your stamp with your first color and stamp onto the cardstock. Clean the stamp (I use Simply Shammy). Turn the stamped card stock 180-degrees. Ink the stamp with another coordinating color. Stamp the image on top of your already stamped piece. The result is a fun design. (FYI: I used Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya.)

I created the sentiment with the Happy Thoughts stamp set (January-June 2021 Mini Catalog) and the Tasteful Labels Dies. In addition, I used the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon and the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.
