Stampin’ Up! Christmas Treat Holders for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!  This month our theme is “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”.  I was inspired to create a collection of Christmas treat holders after receiving some sweet treats from team members at OnStage in Orlando last week.  Be sure to check out each blog to see what we’ve been up to.

I used the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper for this assortment of treat holders.  I hope you like them!

     

This treat holder is made with a 4″ x 7″ panel of DSP.  The snowman is from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set, stamped in Shaded Spruce ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends markers.  Use the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch and the Trio Punch to create the tag.  Use Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon to attach the label to the triangular shaped box.

     

This treat holder is made with a 6″ x 6″ square of DSP.  With a few folds it’s transformed into this neat pocket style holder.  Perfect for a little treat.  Use Garden Green & White Baker’s Twine for a triple-looped bow and adhere with a glue dot.

     

Use the envelope punch board to punch and score a 5″ x 5″ square of DSP to make this envelope style treat holder.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  The flowers are die cuts from the Detailed Deer Thinlits dies and embellished with Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  Adhere the label at each end with a glue dot so the flap can tuck under and stay closed.

This box is constructed from Gray Granite card stock, topped with a die cut square of DSP.  The deer is die cut from Sparkle Gimmer Paper and adhered to a die cut circle of Old Olive card stock.  Cut a length of Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon and adhere to the back of the art piece with glue dots.  Adhere the art piece to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

And this is the classic nugget-style chocolate pieces wrapped with 1″ x 3″ strips of DSP and slipped into a 2″ x 8″ clear cellophane bag and tied with a length of Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon.  Always a hit for the recipient.  Have fun creating!

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Blooms OnStage Make and Take

Wow!  What a week it’s been!  Days full of fun, seeing old friends, making new friends, meeting people from around the world, product previews, give-aways and make & takes.  Here’s a Sneak Peek of some products from the Happiness Blooms Suite.

Isn’t this a pretty card?  It is my favorite one that we made at OnStage.  So bright and colorful!  We stamped the large bloom image from the Bloom by Bloom stamp set in Night of Navy ink randomly on the front of a large 4″ x 6″ note card from the Happiness Blooms Cards & Envelopes.   Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a banner cut from a specialty panel in the Memories & More Card Pack to the card front.  Cut an 8″ length of Calypso Coral 3/8″ Satin Ribbon, fold in half and adhere over the banner with Glue Dots.

Stamp the flower stem on a panel of Whisper White card stock with Call Me Clover ink. Then stamp the large bloom with Lovely Lipstick ink.  Adhere to a panel cut from the Happiness Blooms Card Pack.  Adhere the completed layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays set on a strip cut from the Happiness Blooms card pack.  Embellish with Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.  The envelopes in the pack have stripes printed on the envelope flaps. Sweet!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Thankful for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the projects they are sharing with you.  I used the Country Home stamp set and Country Lane Designer Series Paper for today’s card.  We are working with a sketch challenge this week.  Here’s my card:

And here’s the sketch for this week:

The Country Lane Designer Series Paper has such rich colors, perfect for Fall and Thanksgiving.  And the Country Home stamp set has images and sentiments that coordinate perfectly.  So glad we have Blackberry Bliss as a current color once again.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of the Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White card stock mat.  Wrap a length of Blackberry Bliss twine from the Nature’s Twine collection to this layer and secure to the back with tape, then adhere the layer to the Blackberry Bliss card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Blackberry Bliss ink to stamp the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Use the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut out the sentiment and a Blackberry Bliss scalloped oval mat.  Adhere the layers with Liquid Glue and then adhere to the card front.  Use the Banner Triple Punch to cut the end of a strip of DSP.  Add a Galvanized Clip with a bow to the banner before adhering to the card front with Dimensionals.  Curl the ends of the banner a bit for some added dimension.

Adhere a strip of the DSP along the left edge of the interior Whisper White panel before adhering to the inside of the card base.  So easy to make and so pretty to send to someone to brighten their day.

So excited to be in Orlando for the 30th Anniversary OnStage event with our team members and about 7,000 other demonstrators from around the world.  Yes, that’s right, 7,ooo+ demonstrators are here to celebrate each other and Stampin’ Up! for the next three days.  We’ve already met up with team members from Minnesota, New York, New Jersey, and Georgia.  We’ll meet with more tomorrow.  Here’s a group pic of some of the Georgia group at Disney Springs where we had lunch and did a little shopping.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Memories for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the projects they shared with you.  I used the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper for today’s card.  It’s perfect for our color challenge this week and the DSP has flocking on it – brings back Happy Memories, for sure.  Here’s my card:

And here’s the color challenge:

It was fun to use an image from the Designer Series Paper and build a card around it.  It makes me smile – hope it does you, too!  This card has a lot of different textures.  The Whisper White background panel is embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder, the DSP has some flocking and the branches framing the image add dimension as well.

Wrap three lengths of Garden Green washi tape from the Suite Season Specialty collection around the Whisper White panel after it has been embossed.  Adhere to a Basic Black card stock mat and then to the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Cut out the DSP image with a die from the Layering Circles Framelits dies.  Adhere it to a Poppy Parade panel and mat with Basic Black.

The sentiment is a sticker from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack.  Adhere to a Garden Green card stock label made with the Classic Label punch and embellish with a bow from the Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes collection.  The small pine branches are cut from Garden Green card stock with the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits dies.

Wrap one more length of washi tape around the interior panel of Whisper White card stock, mat with Basic Black and adhere to the card base with Liquid Glue.  Ready for your handwritten message.

Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  I used the Memories & More Santa’s Workshop Card Pack for today’s card.  So glad it’s available again!  We have a sketch challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here’s the sketch were using this week:

It’s fun to put together quick and easy cards using the Santa’s Workshop Card Pack.  It includes a total of 50 double-sided cards (2 each of 25 designs) in 3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ sizes, glittered specialty cards and 4 sticker sheets.  I used a glittered card, a sentiment cut from a 3″ x 4″ card , a portion of another 3″ x 4″ card and some snowflake stickers.  Though it’s hard to capture in pictures, it’s really quite sparkly!

Trim the glittered specialty card to size and adhere to a Garden Green card stock base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Trim the dotted panel to size and adhere to a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere the completed layer to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Trim the printed sentiment panel to size and adhere to a panel of Garden Green card stock.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere in the area that attaches over the decorative panel and use Dimensionals to adhere in the area that attaches to the card base.  Brush Clear Wink of Stella Glitter over the holly leaves to add sparkle.  Adhere a few sparkly snowflake stickers and a triple-loop bow made with Garden Green Baker’s Twine to complete the card front.

Use Glue to adhere the strip trimmed from the glittered panel to the Whisper White panel for the card interior, then adhere to the inside of the card and you’re done!
