Christmas Candy Donations

 

Guess what I did with most of my November Paper Pumpkin Christmas Stockings?

I filled them with holiday candy treats, and packaged them up for a donation!  I donated these to the bowling alley 50-50 raffle this week and I hope that the recipients are going to enjoy them!

I opened up my Paper Pumpkin Kit, got the stockings ready and went shopping for lots of fun candy treats to fill the stockings with!

Candy treats for my November Paper Pumpkin Christmas Stocking candy treat idea.

I assembled the tags that came with the kit, attached them to the stockings and then put 4 stockings in each little "take out box" filled with new Stampin' UP! shreddie.

I wrapped them all up (anyone recognize the polkadot ribbon from MANY years ago? I love that ribbon!) and donated them to the raffle!

Smitten Mitten Penguins!

 

You probably know, I love penguins!  Our Christmas tree has close to 100 penguin ornaments, we have dozens of stuffed animal penguins that we put out at Christmas, and we wrap lots of our Christmas presents in penguin paper! :)   So I'm sure you can imagine that when I saw Brian King share the idea of penguins created from the Smitten Mitten bundle / Many Mittens framelits dies, I knew I had to create my own!!  This idea was shared at World Card Making day in Oct., and it's been on my to-do list ever since then!

Many Mittens penguin Penguin Christmas card featuring Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog products, by Patty Bennett

 

The background paper of this card is found in the Christmas Around the World paper pack, and the die cut trees are from the Santa's Sleigh framelits and the Naturally Eclectic paper pack.  I mounted them onto an Island Indigo side fold card.

 

The Mittens are RETIRING!!!

I am so sad that this adorable bundle (Smitten Mittens stamp set and Many Mittens framelits) are on the retiring list this year!  If you don't have them yet, you need them NOW!

You can see the die cut pieces above to create these cute penguins!

  • Cut 2 basic black mittens
  • Cut 1 whisper white mitten (cut off thumb and trim down sides)
  • Cut 1 additional mitten in any color for hat, and emboss with the Cable Knit embossing folder
  • trim and embellish as desired
  • Use the Fox Builder Punch (shown below) for the feet and nose
  • Draw eyes with a Sharpie or use small round stamps

I had fun embellishing the caps with the Cable Knit embossing folder, and ribbon and tinsel trim!  I also used one of the holly/berry stitched felt embellishments, and cut off the leaves to use the 3 berries as a hat topper 🙂

I also made one penguin into a Christmas Tree ornament, or you could use it as a "to from" tag.

The penguin is mounted on a Whisper White stitched shape oval and then onto a Lots of Label die cut in Old Olive cardstock, with some patterned paper from the Christmas Around the World designer paper pack.

For the 2 bows (green and red) I die cut them from the Christmas Around the World designer paper and the matching Christmas Lamppost thinlits. 

The Merry Christmas banner is stamped using the images in the Merry Cafe stamp set, Real Red ink, and a new die coming up in the 2018 Occasions catalog.

Personalized Bone Folders in pretty Gold Striped Bags

 

It's been busy around here.. over the past few weeks, I decorated, stuffed and mailed 300+ gold striped bags with 600 die cut Christmas trees, 300 metallic doilies and 300 foil snowflakes for my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and filled them with a personalized bone folders as my Christmas gift to each of them!

 

Assembly line for 300 gold striped bags for the Luv 2 Stamp Group - Christmas gifts 2017 from Patty Bennett

I decided to work on the coffee table in the living room so I could enjoy the Christmas tree and all the trimmings while I worked.

I thought I had die cut enough trees, but ended up going back to the Big Shot many times to cut more trees!  600+ trees is a LOT!!  I used the tree in the Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh thinlit set and the Naturally Eclectic and Coffee Break packs of designer paper, mixing and matching the trees on each package.

 Debbie Adams of  Advanced Custom Embroidery & Graphics in NY engraved the Stampin' Up! bone folders for me.  She was terrific to work with and if you need any personalized gifts, I'd highly recommend her!

I layered a metallic doily and a foil snowflake, gold on silver, or silver on gold, for a little extra bling behind the stamped die cut circle.

The gold striped bags are so pretty and especially festive for the holidays!  Find them on page 195 in the annual catalog or here online.

I was celebrating each little step along the way.. like 300+ stamped, die cut circles…  🙂

Using Stampin’ Blends Markers on Hearts Come Home die cuts

 I was thrilled to see how nicely the Stampin’ Blends markers color on Stampin’ Up! Whisper White cardstock, so I decided to just color an entire village for this Christmas card using the Hometown Greetings Stampin’ UP! edgelit dies!

Hearts Come Home / Hometown Greetings thinlit dies - Christmas Village card idea colored with Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut houses from the Hometown Greetings edgelit dies / Hearts Come Home bundle, and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends markers.  I layered them onto a folded Thick Whisper White card base, measuring 8-1/2″ x 4″ (when folded).  The key to layering the strips of houses is to use LOTS of Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals to give it a really dimensional look!
