I cut the "insert" to 4" x 4-1/4" and then punched the top 2 corners with the Curvy Corner Trio punch!  Other fun embellishments include Enamel Dots, glimmer paper and ribbon. I have posted all of the supplies at the bottom of this post and in the free project sheet below.

WATCH THE VIDEO tutorial for this Gift Card Holder project on my YouTube Channel.

We made these at a recent Luv 2 Stamp Group stamping day and also at my workshop for Rita.  I had to explain that I didn't do a very good job.. did you see what happened?

Home for Christmas reindeer paper design on a gift card holder.  Stampin' Up! supplies. Project by Patty Bennett

I ended up with the back end of the reindeer!!! eeek!! So... my advice to you is... adjust the paper before you glue it down if you are trying to capture a certain part of the design!! LOL

2 Tips! Everyone seemed to like this card a lot at the workshop!!  I kept it simple with just 2 colors: Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz.  I also taught them the importance of using the Stampin' Pierce Mat under your stamping project when you are using the Photopolymer stamps.. it makes such a huge difference in the performance!!

I also told everyone about the dryer sheet tip for cutting out the butterfly.. if you didn't see that video, watch it here for a great time-saving tip!

Stampin' Up! Berry Basket Big Shot Die

 

Stampin' Up! Workshop Hostess Gift

You may remember my post about our workshop at Rita's house... Rita always goes all out in making adorable gifts for each attendee, so I always like to bring her a nice hostess goodie!!  I made her a basket with the new Stampin' UP! Berry Basket Big Shot die and put some new Sale a Bration Ribbon and Buttons in it for her!

Berry-basket-for-you-tag-bow-builder-punch-stampin-up-best-year-ever

If you'd like to create a basket, you can follow my instructions below and you'll also find it helpful to watch the VIDEO below!

I lined my cardstock Berry Basket with Sale a Bration designer paper! After die cutting the basket with Crumb Cake cardstock and sponging it, I also die cut it with the Sale a Bration Best Year Ever paper!  You might select this 12x12 paper package as your free gift with your $50 or more Sale a Bration order!!

How-to-make-lined-berry-basket-stampin-up

 

And how fun is this... create your own coordinating shreddie paper to match your Berry Basket!! I love using up my Sale a Bration paper scraps for this!!!  Grab your fringe scissors and away you go!

How-to-make-your-own-shreddie-paper

The perfect finishing touch to the basket was the paper bows on the sides and the tag.  The paper Bow Builder Punch is ADORABLE (see more info here) and it perfect for the sides of this basket!

The tag was punched from the Note Tag Punch and the "for you" is die cut from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit set.  I wrote Rita's name on it with a Project Life pen.  You seriously don't want to know how many of these Project Life pens I have... several at each desk.. I LOVE them! They write like butter!

Occasions 2015 Catalog Workshop Samples

 

 On Saturday I enjoyed a wonderful day presenting a Stampin' Up! Workshop for my friend Rita and her group. We've been stamping together for MANY years.. gosh.. not sure how many.. maybe at least 8 or 10 years, Rita?

I brought the supplies for these 3 cards for the guests to make at the Workshop.

Rita-workshop-stampin-up-cards-pattystamps

Left to Right:

Lotus Blossom Card - see this post for video and more instructions  - we added some Stacked with Love Washi tape to the card and also sponged our own background paper with the FREE Irresistibly Yours Sale a Bration paper (see this post)

Blendabilities on Black Card - See this post for a video and more instructions

Butterfly Basics bundle Card - see my blog post later this week

Lotus-blossom-sale-a-bration-stampin-up-washi-tape

This amazing Lotus Blossom flower stamp is by far the most popular FREE Sale a Bration choice item among my customers this year.  I just love how you can use one ink pad and get WOW results!!  We made this card at Rita's workshop .. I brought the Stacked with Love Washi Tape, too and we loved the black POP it brought to the cards!  You can select this stamp set FREE with your $50 online order!

Lotus-blossom-sale-a-bration-stampin-up-irresistibly-yours-paper

The cards above that we made at the workshop were stamped on the Whisper White Note Cards using the Calypso Coral ink pad for the flowers and Pear Pizzazz for the stem and for sponging the leaf design from Irresistibly Yours (a free Sale a Bration item too!).  Stampers had their choice of ribbon.. left to right; Sale a Bration Best Year Ever ribbon, Calypso Coral Seam Binding and Wild Wasabi Seam Binding.

See this video for stamping the Lotus Blossom with only one ink pad color.

Click to Watch a Video with info on coloring your own Irresistibly Yours paper

After I got home from the workshop I decided to play with stamping the Lotus Blossom flower in more than one ink color.. so the samples below were stamped with Calypso Coral for the 1st layer, then Strawberry Slush for the 2nd layer and then either Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe or Strawberry Slush for the 3rd layer... stuning results, don't you think!?

Lotus-blossom-sale-a-bration-stampin-up-cards

My Stampin' Up! Color Combo:

 I was thrilled to see Lacey at the workshop.. I had not seen her for a few years!  She selected the Lotus Blossom set as her free Sale a Bration gift!! :)

Check out these ADORABLE gifts that our hostess Rita made for each guest.. wow.. she always outdoes herself!! She used the Tag a Bag Accessory kit and doilies to decorate the Chevron Bags!  You can also save moolah buy purchasing the bundle!

Black and White Square Frame Flower Card

 

I love this striking Black and White frame card!  I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest, and Rita and I decided this Square Frame card would be great for our Stampin' UP! workshop, so this is one of the cards we made at her workshop.  This cute Note Card is quick and easy when you use the Square Framelits and your Big Shot from Stampin' Up!.  The Petite Petals stamps and matching punch paired up with the stem from the Simple Stems stamp set is perfect for these frames.

Square-framelit-petite-flower-cards

TIPS AND HOW TO: Place any 2 square framelit pieces on the magnetic platform and run it through the Big Shot at once and you will get a fantastic little frame!  I cut 2 layers of Designer Paper at once from the Neutrals Color Collection Paper Stack.

Square-framelit-flower-card-big-shot

ADHESIVE TIP: Since these little frames are so skinny, here is a TIP for you.. place the frame on the Silicone Mat and apply your adhesive... it won't stick to the mat and will only go where you want it to go!

Square-framelit-silicone-mat-tip

STAMPING TIP:   when stamping the stems from the Simple Stems stamp set:

Square-framelit-flower-stem-stamping-tip

After stamping the 3 stems, place the frame on the card (using the adhesive tip shown above), then stamp and punch out the flowers (using a scrap of Whisper White) and add them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Square-framelit-flower-card-petite-punch

 Use a Stampin' Dimensionals behind each flower for a fun 3-D effect then a Black Candy Dot in the center of each flower for a great POP!

Need more Black Candy Dots? Use the Neutrals Pack and color them with a Sharpie marker!

250-black-candy-dots

Did you know about all those tips I shared with you?  I hope you learned something new!

Fresh Prints Birthday Note Card

 

Today I'm sharing a fun (and quick and easy) card with you that we made at my last 2 workshops, for Janice and for Rita, over the last 2 weekends.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the card so I wanted to share it with you, too!  This card could be used for birthday, congrats, or thank you depending on which images you decide to use on the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. And it can be more masculine or feminine depending on which pattern from the Fresh Prints Paper stack of printed paper you decide to use, too!

Fresh-prints-make-a-wish-card

 

QUICK TAG TIP:  I love to keep a stack of 2" wide Whisper White scraps on my desk to use with this Scalloped Tag Topper punch.. it makes it so quick and easy to whip up a tag and use it as the focal point on your card or craft project!

 

Fresh-prints-make-a-wish-tag

A couple other awesome embellishments we used are:

  • Washi Tape
  • Gold Baker's Twine
  • Chevron Natural ribbon
  • Arrows embossing folder

Don't each of those fun embellishments just add a great little bit of detail to the card?

HOW TO MAKE THIS CARD:

  1. Start with the Whisper White Note Card base
  2. add a piece of printed paper from the Fresh Prints Paper Stack to the top 2/3 of the card
  3. add an embossed piece of Whisper White to the bottom 1/3 of the card
  4. add a scrap strip of Real Red cardstock where the 2 papers meet
  5. cut a piece of the Chevron ribbon with the Craft Scissors (to make it an arrow) and add it with snail just below the red strip
  6. stamp tag, add washi tape and tie Baker's Twine to the top, add tag with Stampin' Dimensionals
  7. mail it to a friend and make them smile!

A quick share today.. this is a project we made at Stacey's Stampin' Up! workshop on the weekend, and we'll make it at Valerie's workshop later this month...  how cute are the Kraft Gift Boxes from Stampin' Up! ??

MDS JOY NOEL boxes 2

and what a bargain at 4 boxes for only $2.95 !!!!!!!
Kraft gift box
CLICK HERE TO ORDER TODAY!

We decorated the sides of the box with FROSTWOOD LODGE Designer Paper from Stampin' Up!, then tied 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the box. (Marina Mist #119772 and Cherry Cobbler #125056 shown here).  We stamped tags to add to the box, too.

OK>>> are you ready for the details on the cute toppers??????

On Sept. 6th, Andrea Bowden posted a FABULOUS ensemble of Thanksgiving decor projects she made with a new MDS download.. view her blog post here...

Thankful mds <<<< When I saw her cute idea, I just knew I wanted to adapt it into a Christmas idea, so I immediately bought the Grateful Heart Thanksgiving Ensemble MDS download (#127620 - click here to order) and began substituting the letters I needed: NOEL, LOVE, XMAS and JOY for the THANKFULNESS letters.. and voila.. I had my super quick Christmas toppers done for my Kraft gift boxes! I changed the colors slightly to go with the Frostwood Lodge DSP.

So, here was my result:

MDS JOY NOEL boxes

I did print these at home since it was a last minute idea. .I used my Epson R1900 printer.

I'm happy to report that Stacey and her workshop guests enjoyed the project and liked my My Digital Studio box topper efforts :)

    Melanie's Workshop in a Box!

    I have a lovely long-distance customer, Melanie, who asked how it might work to do a long-distance workshop... after trying to get her to sign up to be the Stampin' Up! demonstrator (she's thinking about it)... I told her I'd be happy to send her a "workshop in a box".

    Melanie WS kit copy
    Melanie and her guests will make 2 fun cards featuring tons of products from the new Occasions Mini catalog and the Sale A Bration catalog.  I included 2 stamp sets and a punch, all the consumable supplies to make the cards, envelopes, a hostess gift and supply sheets for the projects.  I have already sent the catalogs, order forms and wish lists to her. Melanie will supply the ink, scissors and adhesive.

    Want to see what they are making tomorow?
