Decorated Candle Holder Holiday Gift Idea

 This adorable little candle holder was one of the 7 projects we created at our Luv 2 Stamp Group team event last weekend.  Everyone really seemed to enjoy creating them with Stampin' Up! supplies!!  I hope you enjoy the idea too - great for a neighbor gift, teacher gift, co-worker or for your own home!

I found these cute jar / candle holders at Michael's (actually had to go to 2 stores to get 35 of them for our event), and we did a super simple decoration with the Jute Twine, a stamped/layered tag, the Holly/Berry felt embellishment and come colored White Perfect accents!

Love and Hugs Ribbon of Courage note card

 

Sending Love and Hugs to you!!  I love this sweet and thoughtful sentiment in the Ribbon of Courage stamp set!!

 

Ribbon of Courage note card - Sending Love and Hugs featuring Sweetheart Embossing folder from Stampin' UP!, by Patty Bennett

 

I also love how well the heart theme of this card pairs up with the Sweetheart Embossing folder from Stampin' Up!.  Find it on page 210 of the 2017 -2018 Annual Catalog or HERE online.

When you emboss with this folder, it leaves the heart shape flat (un-embossed) so that you can either stamp there, or add your own embellishment.  I added a stamped heart from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set on a die cut heart from the Sweet & Sassy framelit set.

Ribbon of Courage note card - Sending Love and Hugs featuring Sweetheart Embossing folder from Stampin' UP!, by Patty Bennett

This sweet, thick Whisper White note card is finished off with a piece of black and white plaid paper from the Merry Little Christmas pack (pg 12 of the 2017 Holiday catalog), and a silver foil doily and die cut flower and leaves from the Support Ribbon framelit set.

The final finishing touch is the 3/8" Metallic-Edge Silver ribbon.

 

Ribbon of Courage note card - Sending Love and Hugs featuring Sweetheart Embossing folder from Stampin' UP!, by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut a flower and leaves from the Ribbon of Courage bundle (Support Ribbon framelits) and layered them on top of the silver foil doily.  Using Glue Dots to attach the embellishment layers is a quick and simple adhesive solution.

Painted Harvest Sunflower Eclipse Card

 

These "eclipse cards" are all the rage in the Stampin' Up! world right now.. you may have seen them online.  My upline, Sandy Hancock, made this eclipse card for me and sent it to me with a nice note inside! I love it!  She stamped it with the Painted Harvest Sunflower image and used the Large Letter Framelit dies to die cut PATTY.

 

Painted Harvest sunflower PATTY eclipse card featuring Stampin' UP! Large Letter Framelits

 

I'll be honest.. I would not call this an "eclipse card" like everyone is calling it.. I'd call it a shadow card.. but that's ok, and whatever you want to call it, it is beautiful!!

 

Painted Harvest sunflower PATTY eclipse card featuring Stampin' UP! Large Letter Framelits

 

These eclipse cards are not difficult to make, but the outcome is amazing!

1.  stamp the background of your card (Painted Harvest Sunflower used here)

2.  place your background in the Big Shot and position your Large Letter Framelit dies on the stamped background, die cut.

3.  adhere the stamped background to your card base

4.  put Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of each letter, and reposition each letter over the die cut opening.  (Mini Stampin' dimensionals come in VERY handy here!)

that's it!  easy-peasy and SOOOOOO stunning!

 

Although currently on "backorder" status, these Large Letter Framelit dies are expected in stock on Oct. 30th.

Acetate box Christmas holiday or neighbor gift idea featuring Ghirardelli chocolate squares  and Stampin' UP! Year of Cheer paper, foil snowflakes and Snowflake Sentiment stamp set. Luv 2 Stamp group holiday catalog event project by Patty Bennett

 

This was one of the 7 Holiday catalog projects the Luv 2 Stamp Group created last Saturday at our stamping day event.  We used the Year of Cheer Holiday catalog paper to wrap around the Ghirardelli chocolate squares, and also to decorate the 1/2 boxes.  Each box is finished off with a gold or silver Foil Snowflake, and a stamped sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punched with the Starburst Punch. (all of these products are shown at the bottom of this blog post - just click any product photo to shop in my online Stampin' Up! store).

Starbucks Gift Card Holder idea for Christmas

 

Gift Cards... it seems we all give them either at the holidays or during the year for birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, Christmas, etc., but it's fun to make them a little more personal and fancy than just handing them to the recipient in an envelope. 

 

Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

Today I have a gift card holder idea for you that is basically a side fold card with a little pocket inside and since this one features the Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle, it's the perfect holder for a Starbucks gift card. 

Even though it's difficult to see in the photo, the lid is glossy white cardstock and it looks super cute in person!

Die Cutting for the Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

Tip.. use Tear & Tape or strong adhesive at the bottom and 2 sides of the small piece of Year of Cheer paper inside the card for the gift card pocket to ensure that it holds.

Inside gift card pocket for the Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

The card base is Thick Whisper White cardstock and the front snowflake design is found in the Year of Cheer designer paper pack.  The coffee cup is die cut from the Quilted Christmas designer paper pack.  The small hearts are die cut from the Support Ribbon framelits - sorry I left those off the supply list below.

Happiness... is stamped in Emerald Envy ink (to match the Emerald Envy ribbon) and it's found in the Coffee Cafe stamp set.

 

Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

I loved the shimmery foil pattern in the Year of Cheer paper so I carried that through the theme of the card with the Champagne foil cup "wrapper" and the Foil snowflake!

 

Join my Team!  This was one of the 7 projects we created on Saturday at our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting!  Here are 4 lovely ladies creating this gift card holder project.  If you'd like to join my team, READ MORE HERE and please email me with questions.

Seasonal Layers framelits  from Stampin' Up! - Fall Leaf card featuring glossy paper and reinkers. Greeting from So Many Shells stamp set.

 The background of this card is created by sponging Crushed Curry ink onto Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, then dropping drops of water from the Aquapainter to create the water circle marks. We also splattered Wink of Stella onto the Very Vanilla.  (The card base is also Thick Very Vanilla cardstock).

Cindee taught me how to make this lovely card and how to create these AMAZING leaves!!  You can see her blog post HERE.

 

Seasonal Layers framelits  from Stampin' Up! - Fall Leaf card featuring glossy paper and reinkers. Gold Embossing on leaf adds beautiful interest.

 

The leaves are created by die cutting the shapes from Glossy paper using the Seasonal Layers framelits, then spritzing them with the Stampin' Spritzer with water, and then dropping drops of reinker onto them.  Once dry they are gorgeous!  As you can see we also dipped a few in versamark ink and added some gold embossing powder then heating with our heat tool!  WOW!!  As you can see below, you might want to do the spritzing and ink drops on a paper towel.

I cannot tell you how fun it is to watch the ink spread and mix and to see the different outcome of each leaf!!

How to use Stampin' Blends markers - Snowman Shading

Stampin' Blends Markers, available November 1, 2017!!

Watch my video below for tips on how to color and shade this cute "Seasonal Chums" snowman!  I created this fun mini Pizza Box for a Luv 2 Stamp Group event and now I'm sharing with you!

 

Seasonal Chums snowman colored with Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends markers on a darling Mini Pizza Box.  Christmas gift box idea by Patty Bennett

 

I hope you like this sweet little Mini Pizza Box!!  It is one of the 7 projects I prepared and brought for my Luv 2 Stamp group to create today at our Holiday Catalog stamping day!   I hope they enjoy it!  The snowman is stamped in Memento Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock and colored with the new Stampin' Blend markers!  Demonstrators were able to preorder these new markers Oct. 1 - 15, and GREAT NEWS! the markers be available to customers on Nov. 1st!!  Watch the video below for more info about using these great new alcohol markers to shade this cute snowman!

Please enjoy the tips in my VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW for shading the snowman with the Stampin' Blends markers.

 


 

If you are reading this in an email, CLICK HERE to watch the video, please.

 

Per my video above, you saw that I die cut the snowman with the matching Seasonal Tags framelit, but only used 1/2 of the stamp and framelit.  I just added the snowman "front" to my Mini Pizza box with Stampin' Dimensionals rather than die cutting the whole thing and making a folding tag.

What would you put in this cute Mini Pizza Box this Christmas to give someone? 

Leave me a comment below.. I'm going to pick my favorite idea and send this box to the winner next week!!  :)

 

The top of the Mini Pizza Box is a 3-1/4" square of Pool Party cardstock, embossed with the Winter Wonder snowflake embossing folder, and then I added Wink of Stella to the snowflake.

Birthday Memories 85th Money Gift

 

Ron 85th birthday 2017 We are blessed to have celebrated both of our dad's 85th birthdays in September!!  What an amazing blessing to still have my dad and Eric's dad with us!!  You may remember this blog post with the Mini Pizza Box birthday idea for my dad, when we celebrated his 85th birthday in September.

<< this is Eric's dad and his wife as they celebrated his 85th birthday in September.   We were gone on the stamping/scrapping cruise, but were able to be with them a couple weeks before.

 

Do you love that shirt!?  "It took me 85 years to look this good"!! :)

Today I am sharing the $85 gift I made for Eric's dad for his birthday.. I totally forgot to take a photo of the front, but here is the inside of the folder with the pockets full of 85 $1 bills.

 

 

Birthday Memories 85th birthday gift idea - Stampin' Up! designer paper and Birthday Friends framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut the Happy Birthday thinlit die using Pacific Point and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and cut it apart so that I could put 85 in the middle.  The 85 is die cut with the Birthday Memories paper and the large numbers framelit dies. 

TIP! Adhering the Multipurpose Adheseive sheets to the carsdtock and paper first is a huge help in adhering these dies to any project.

Before you think it's weird that I put the poodle on here,  they have a large cuddly doodle named Zoe... so this big poodle reminded me of her... I hope Ron and Jean figured that out when they saw this :)

 

Birthday Memories 85th birthday gift idea - Stampin' Up! designer paper and Birthday Friends framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

The fun die cut animals, balloons and cake are all from the Birthday Memories pack of Stampin' Up! designer paper!  Did you know it's currently part of the buy 3 get 1 FREE sale in October!?  The matching Birthday Friends framelits make this project a breeze!

I drew the balloon strings with my Journaling Pens.

Hearts Come Home Christmas Card

 The Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog 2017 is simply amazing!  One of the amazing money-saving 10% off bundles in the catalog is on page 39, and it's called Hearts Come Home.  It features the stamp set of the same name and the framelits called Hometown Greetings.  Cindee and I created this clean and simple Christmas card together featuring this bundle and neutral colors! 

 

Hearts Come Home Christmas card featuring Whisper White die cut village houses and Santa and his reindeer in the sky with Silver Enamel Metallic stars.

 

After die cutting the houses in Whisper White cardstock on the Big Shot, we layered them onto a top fold Crumb Cake card.  Really simple!!  We did sponge just a touch of Crumb Cake ink on the white cardstock for just a little contrast.

Metallic Enamel Shape Silver Stars are the perfect touch for the sky!

Crafting Tip: use the tip of your paper piercer to pick up and place small embellishments onto your crafting project.

We added Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals under the 2 layers of the White die cut houses to give this card a little added dimension.  We stamped Santa in the sky with Soft Suede ink.
