Stampin' Up! Toile Christmas Wreath Ornament!

Hey there! Today I have another Toile Christmas/All Around Wreath ornament to share with you today. It is very similar to my Christmas Cardinal wreath I posted a few days ago HERE.

For this wreath ornament I wanted to use this sweet banner greeting. I stamped it with Real Red ink on white card stock, then cut it with the coordinating Christmas Cardinal die. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink for a vintage look. I also sponged the edges of the Garden Green wreath, which I cut with the All-Around Wreath die.

I put the Champagne Foil wreath together with the Garden Green wreath with snippets of stampin' dimensionals, then added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Take Your Pick Tool.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Today I have a bunch of fun swaps to share with you, all created with the Snowman Season Stamp set and the Let It Snow Suite!

First, a super-simple creation by Mary Knabe:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps1-1

Mary tied a simple knot/bow with Real Red 1" Ruched Ribbon:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Kathy Schaffer used the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit to add the muffler to the snowman's neck!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps3

I love the font of this Merry Christmas greeting!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps4

Janet Holmes created a z-fold for her swap.

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps5

She used Cherry Cobbler 3/8" Diagonal Stripe Ribbon to add a fresh candy-cane look!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps6

The open z-fold:

Bernice Hallack used Shaded Spruce for the card base of her fun card:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps8

She used Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to add accent to the snow:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps9

She also added a bow of Real Red 1/8" Curly Ribbon. Soooo cute!

Stampin' Up! Playful Penguins Gift Card Holder!

Hey there! As promised, today I'm sharing the second gift card holder I created with the "Twisted Gate Fold". The one I shared with you yesterday will not fit in a medium 4 3/8" x 5 3/4" envelope, but this one today will!

I used Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper again, along with the Playful Penguins stamp set for this smaller version:

Stampin_up_playful_penguins_carolpaynestamps1

How adorably cute is this little fellow?!!!

Stampin_up_playful_penguins_carolpaynestamps2

After heat-embossing the greeting with white powder on Real Red, it fit perfectly inside the Classic Label Punch! I accented it with a few Snowflake Sequins.

Stampin_up_playful_penguins_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used the "to: from:" again from Snowman Season, as well as the snowflakes stamped with Pool Party ink.

Stampin_up_playful_penguins_carolpaynestamps4

I accented the snowflakes with a few more Snowflake Seasons.

Stampin' Up! Let It Snow Gift Card Holder!

Hey there! I found this "Twisted Gate Fold" that I decided to turn into a gift card holder with the Let It Snow Suite!

I used Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Snowman Season stamp set, and Snowman Builder Punch to create this cute gift card holder!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps1

There's a print in the Let It Snow Specialty that has sparkly snowmen that fit perfectly into the Snowman Builder Punch, so I used them to create the embellishment focal image for these!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps2

When you punch out the snowman, you are also punching out this hat and arms, so I simply flipped them over to the Real Red side for this project!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I simply added a strip of 1 1/4" wide Let It Snow paper to make the pocket to insert the gift card.

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps4

The dimensions for the base of the gift card holder:

5 1/2" x 7 1/2", scored at 2 1/2" and 5" creates the three equal sections. Then you score diagonally on the two end sections to create the fold.

I have included more detailed instructions to make this project at the bottom of this post.

Tomorrow I will post a smaller version of this project that will fit in a Medium Envelope and include the measurements and directions!

Stampin' Up! Toile Christmas Cardinal!

Hey there! Yesterday was a very productive day, stamping-wise, as well as a fun day with my granddaughter, Darcy! She painted with water, stamped with a fun retired set I had saved for her, played with stickers, and ended the day with a 4-wheeler ride in the dark with her PaPa and I! We stay strictly on farm ground, no roads whatsoever, on well-worn paths mostly, so very safe! It was chilly, so we put on coats and wedged her between us so she stayed warm! Sweet memories!

Today I want to share with you an ornament I created with the Toile Tidings Suite on pages 6-9 of the Holiday Catalog:

Stampin_up_toile_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I have to say this turned out exactly the way I imagined it in my head!

I sponged the edges of the white heat-embossed cardinal and the Garden Green wreath with Crumb Cake ink for a vintage look.

Stampin_up_toile_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels for pops of color.

Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Christmas!

Hey there! Fall is here, even though the weather is still feeling rather summer-like, the humidity is lower, there is a light fall breeze, and the calendar says it's fall! I'm jumping over fall today to share a Christmas card with you created with the Itty Bitty Christmas bundle. This card was my swap this month!

I used Blueberry Bushel, Whisper White, and Sparkle Glimmer paper for my color palette.

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

It's hard for the camera to capture how shimmery the background is, brushed with Clear Wink of Stella over the Eyelet Lace-embossed Blueberry Bushel layer.

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

The snowflakes are cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper. The new Stampin' Up! dies are so much better at cutting and releasing the card stock than before! With almost all of the dies the card stock almost falls out when you lift it from the cutting machine!

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

I traced icicles with Shimmery Crystal Effects, then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_christmas_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped the inside and envelope snowflakes with an image from the Free Skate stamp set, then used another Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Free Skate!

Hey there! Today is Tuesday School day, so in a little bit I'll be dropping Darcy off at the church. She LOVES her Tuesday School! Since Tuesday School is closer to my house than her house, Darcy spends the night with me on Monday nights, or as Darcy calls it, a "sweepover" (sleepover)!

My project share for today is with the Free Skate Bundle found on page 44 of the Holiday Catalog:

Stampin_up_free_skate_carolpaynestamps1

I grew up in Central Illinois, so ice skating was an important part of my childhood. Winter means skates to me!

Stampin_up_free_skate_carolpaynestamps2

After adhering the bow with a glue dot, I added a Blueberry Bushel Rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

Stampin_up_free_skate_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the greeting with Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink before embossing with the Winter Knit 3-D Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_free_skate_carolpaynestamps6

Inside I stamped the sentiment with the Silvery Shimmer ink and added the snowflakes with Seaside Spray ink.

Stampin' Up! Gold Mini Pizza Box!

Hey there! I know I've been saying I'm trying to wait a little longer to share Christmas-themed projects with you, but this one I just simply can't wait any longer!

Originally created for this month's Stampers Dozen Blog Hop, I decided to wait to share it because it wasn't fall-themed, but I love how it turned out, as well as how simple and easy it was to make!

I started with a new Gold Mini Pizza Box from page 13 of the 2019 Holiday Catalog. These little babies are part of the Wrapped In Plaid Suite. I layered a 3" x 3" piece of Wrapped in Plain 6" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper. I put another piece the same size inside the lid to match.

Stampin_up_gold_mini_pizza_box_carolpaynestamps1

After punching the Pine Tree Punch tree I embossed with the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder, then adhered with mini stampin' dimensionals.

Stampin_up_gold_mini_pizza_boxes_carolpaynestamps2

I could of just left the tree a flat and shiny gold, but I loved how much dressier embossing with the Stylish Scroll made it!

Stampin_up_pine_tree_punch_carolpaynestamps1

I finished the box top with a 2 3/4" piece of Very Vanilla/Copper 1/2" Classic Weave Ribbon. This ribbon has "Merry Christmas" copper embossed in both script and a bold font. LOVE IT!

Stampin_up_gold_mini_pizza_boxes_carolpaynestamps3

I added another piece of the Wrapped in Plaid inside the lid just for fun.

Stampin_up_gold_mini_pizza_boxes_carolpaynestamps4

These boxes are Food Safe, as well as the right size to fit a gift card! Be sure to put a pack of these on your next order!

Measurements:

Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper for box lid and inside: 3" x 3" - need two

Gold Foil for tree: 2" x 2 1/2"

Very Vanilla/Copper Classic Weave Ribbon: 2 3/4"

Stampin' Up! Nature's Beauty for Christmas!

Hey there! I love this Nature's Beauty stamp set soooo much! Today's creation is another one with Nature's Beauty, Come to Gather Designer Series Paper, and Rustic Retreat stamp set.  I have a couple more cards to share with this set and then I'll move on to another set, I promise! lol!

I really love how this one turned out!

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the trees from Nature's Beauty with the Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink on Early Espresso, then punched with the 2 1/4" Circle Punch. I adhered Snowflake Sequins, which are new in the 2019 Holiday Catalog, with tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I was able to place the tiny snowflakes and sequins by using my Take Your Pick tool.

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

I again stamped directly on the wood grain print from the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper pack with a greeting from Rustic Retreat and Cherry Cobbler ink for a sentiment that really popped!

1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

I used the " Be a Difference Maker" set from the back page, Nature's Beauty. Stampin' Up! will donate $3 from every set sold  from September 4 - January 2, 2020 to  support Mental Health Organizations!

I stamped the deer directly on the inside of the folder with Soft Suede ink before inserting the Very vanilla card stock. More detailed directions are available in my downloadable handout you will find near the bottom of my post.

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps2

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps3

The inside sentiment is also from Gather Together.
