Christmas, Holiday Catalog 2018, Product of the Week, Stampin'Up!

Not just a card…

….but a gift, it seems like gift cards are very popular around the holidays and when I give them I like to dress them up a little.

FullSizeRender (9)

To create this gift card holder I added the Santa’s workshop Memories & More cards & Envelopes to my supplies. The Cards & Envelopes come with 20 cards bases, 10 each of 2 sizes (3″ X 4″ & 4″ X 6″) with matching envelopes……I plan on stocking up on these to use for valentines cards 🙂

envelopes pp

Lets get started with our gift card holder by pulling out a few cards and stickers from the card pack and some poppy parade ribbon & garden green bakers twine.

FullSizeRender (8)

Outside pocket:

  • seal a small envelope and cut off the top, it should be 3 1/2″ X 4 1/4″
  • glittered stripe card- cut 1 at 2″ X 3″
  • heart candy cane card- cut 1 at 3″ X 3″
  • polka dot card- cut 1 at 1″ X 3″
  • adhere the candy cane card to the glittered stripe card (4″ X 3″)
  • adhere the 1″  polka dot and tie a piece of garden green bakers twine around with a bow
  • attach to the envelope with dimensionals making sure the opening is on top and attach the Happy Christmas sticker on the front with dimensionals

Gift card tag:

  • garden green card stock (or one of the cards in the pack)- cut 1 at 3″ X 4 1/2″
  • punch a hole with the detailed trio punch for the ribbon, slip a 4″ piece of ribbon through the hole and tie a piece of garden green bakers twine around with a knot.
  • add a couple stickers to decorate the tag along the bottom.

This simple gift card holder idea I am sure you will come up with many more combinations with the variety cards that are includes. Below are a list of the supplies used. You can click on any of the products to be directed to my online store or go to http://www.jeannekooker.stampinup.net.

Get Cozy with Flannel…

Flannel shirts are warm & cozy and remind me of cooler nights and sitting by a fire. I wanted to create that feeling with paper so I started grabbing products that would help me create a background paper that reminded me of my favorite flannel shirt….

The Buffalo Check background stamp will work for the base,  I will add the detail lines with the Stampin’ Blends, using both the fine and brush tips. To give it the texture I wanted I use the Subtle embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. I created three different pieces with totally different colors….

FullSizeRender (1)

…and from these three pieces I created a Fall, Christmas and Valentines day card. It really is hard to stop when you start playing with the different color combinations.

Stampin’ Blends…

Stampin’ Blends markers can be used to color in images, create backgrounds and so much more, today I decided to create my own colored paper to punch out for the light bulbs. This would be a fun technique to use with other punches and die cuts.

i am using the Night of Navy, Granny Apple Green and Real Red Stampin’ Blends, I colored an area on a scrap of whisper white paper in each color trying both the light and dark shades of each color. Once I found the shade I liked I punched out several of each.

The galvanized metallic paper was perfect to add as the socket, I punched them out and used a glue dot to attach them. To create the string for the lights I used the garden green bakers twine, I attached it to the front and inside the card with glue dots.Once the images were stamped in memento black ink I was ready to add the light bulbs.

To finish off the card I added a few rhinestones and an accent swoosh on the light bulbs with Wink of Stella.

To create this card you will need….

  • Night of Navy card stock- cut 1 at 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″
  • Granny Apple Green Card stock- cut 1 at 3″ X 6″, score at 5 1/2″, attach to the Night of navy to create a flap
  • Whisper White card stock- cut 1 at 5 1/4″ X 2 3/4″ front, cut 1 at 4 3/4″ X 2 1/2″ inside, scrap to color and punch out light bulbs
  • Galvanized Metallic paper – cut 1 piece at 1/2″ X 12″, punch out sockets for ]light bulbs
  • Santa’s Workshop Designer series paper cut 1 red polka dot at 4″ X 5 1/4″, adhere to the night of navy covering the where you attached the Granny Apple Green

Fall Inspiration…

IMG_0868

Fall colors are so beautiful if you are lucky enough to live where the leaves change colors but….if you aren’t so lucky sometimes you need to look for inspiration in other places. I found the napkins, plates and even a table-cloth that captured the feeling I was looking for, cool, crisp and cheerful! As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I knew these would coordinate perfect with our Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Blackberry Bliss & Mint Macaron color palette and will be sharing fun projects this week with these colors.

Happy Halloween ….

This may not be the traditional Halloween colors but it sure makes me Happy about Halloween. Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green have become two of my favorite NEW Stampin’ Up! colors and I was excited to see them featured in the Toil & Trouble Halloween Designer Series Paper.

I started with a 5 1/2′ X 8 1/2″ piece of whisper white card stock, scored at 4 1/4″, I stamped the stars in gorgeous grape and granny apple green classic ink along the top. Next I added a 2 strips of designer series paper, 1″ X  5 1/2″ & 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, The Happy Halloween was stamped in memento black ink in the lower right corner.

To finish it off I punched out a basic black starburst shape and attached a witches hat that I had cut out of the designer series paper and adhered it to the card base. I wrapped a piece of the black bakers twine around the card and tied a bow adding in a 3″ piece of the black sequins trim.

If you are looking for a quick card this one is perfect, you can change-up the papers and ink and get a totally different look!

Two looks one design!

Do you have a favorite layout? I have several and it always amazes me that by changing up the colors, accessories or images how different each card looks. Today’s card I created with the same layout, same stamp set but changed up the colors and theme with different sentiments. This card features Pop of petals bundle and Another Wonderful Year for the sentiment “Thank You”

IMG_9740

To get started….

  •  Cut a standard card base in Soft Sea Foam (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″) stamp the 3 little flower image in Soft Sea Foam ink from the upper left corner to the lower right. Cut 1 piece at 3″ X 3/4″ and stamp your sentiment in Old Olive ink.
  • With Whisper White card stock you will need 1 piece cut at 4 1/4″ X 3 1/4″, with a pencil trace a circle (I used a framelit) and stamp the branch in Old Olive moving around the circle stamping twice and then re-inking the image so you get the different shades.  You will need 1 piece cut at 4 1/4″ X 1″, punch along the long side with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch.
  • Stamp 3 flowers on Petal Pink card stock with Petal Pink ink and punch out, I curled the petals with my bone folder.

Putting it together….

  • Wrap a 15″ piece of linen thread around the whisper white and tie a bow on the right .
  • Attach the sentiment with dimensionals above the bow.
  • Add the 3 flowers with glue dots, add rhinestones to the centers.
  • Adhere the whisper white decorative border about 3 1/4″-3 1/2″ down from the top, add dimensionals and attach your wreath 🙂

On my second card I used all the same measurements but different colors to create a Holiday Card. 

IMG_9741

  • Card base- Call Me Clover ink and card stock
  • Flowers/Ribbon – Lovely Lipstick 2018-2020 In-color designer series paper, Lovely Lipstick grosgrain ribbon, polka dot tulle ribbon.
  • Accessories red rhinestones, faceted gems, Versamark ink, white embossing powder.
  • Sentiment Mistletoe Seasons

TIP – I punched out 3 flowers for each, a total of nine. I spritzed them with water and crumpled them, once dry I layered them attaching with glue dots.
