Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Latte Coffee Cup Gifts

After I tried this amazing Starbucks K-Cup Peppermint Mocha Latte, I knew this would make a perfect neighbor gift this Christmas! Perfect for a coworker or teacher, too!  Just  check out your local store for inexpensive mugs and fill with shreddie, candy, and the pouch and K-cup!

Of course, being a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator, I see this as the perfect opportunity to make a cute stamped tag to hang on the mug handle 🙂

I used the beautiful Detailed Bauble framelit die that looks like a doily for this tag.  I stamped Merry Christmas from the Warm Hearted hostess set, and added one of the cute die cut coffee cups (from THIS project).

How cute is this Merry & Bright coffee mug? I found it at Big Lots and made the coordinating tag for it with my Stitched Label framelits and a die cut coffee cup. The “Just for You” sentiment and hearts are actually from an up coming stamp set in the 2019 Occasions catalog. I couldn’t resist using it!

For my 3rd mug, I found this cute plaid mug also at Big Lots and decided to add a cute copper wire Snowflake embellishment to the tag (sorry, sold out!) and tie it with the Cherry Cobbler/Copper ribbon (sorry, also sold out)!

What other fun ideas do you have for neighbor gifts?

Christmas Pillow Box Gift Wrap idea perfect for Gift Cards. Stampin' UP! So Santa stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. DIY project by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I wanted to create a couple of really cute containers to fill with goodies for special people this Christmas, so I used some of the cute “So Santa” images that I stamped and colored on the plane last month on my way to Orlando!  Each image is stamped with Memento Black ink on a Stitched Shape Whisper White die cut and colored with Stampin’ Blends markers.

My fun beach Santa image was embellished with a die cut Christmas tree from the Sweetly Stitched framelits, then I added lots of cute Red Rhinestones to the tree.  I matted the colored Santa image on a scalloped square in Lemon Lime Twist and added Ruffled Lemon Lime Twist ribbon. Too fun!

If you would like to create some of your own fun packaging this holiday season, you can purchase any of these supplies in my online Stampin’ UP! store here, or click any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.

I found this cute tin at the big box craft store and thought it would be adorable with a handstamped tag, so I added some Real Red ribbon and a festive So Santa tag.  It’s filled with Christmas candies!

So Santa Christmas Card Ideas with Stampin’ Blends

As I was coloring these cute So Santa images with my Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers, I was thinking about how I would add them to a card or project, and I thought about this Delightfully Detailed laser paper … I layered it onto Lovely Lipstick and Real Red cardstock and I kind of thought it looked like poinsettias in the background.. what do you think?

I hope you enjoy these So Santa Christmas card ideas.  I just thought they were so fun and happy and cheerful!!

Crafting Tip!

When using the Sweetly Stitched heart and tree framelit dies, line up the framelit that does the stitching impression with the one that does the outline cut and adhere them together with one of these Post-it note flags shown below.  That way they will keep the right spacing and you’ll have a perfect die cut/stitched image each time!

Crafting Tip for using the Stampin' UP! Sweetly Stitched framelit hearts and Christmas Tree, by Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

The Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper was fun to use on this project.  I think it looks like poinsettias when you overlay it on red cardstock.  🙂

The So Santa images were stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  They are die cut with the Stitched Shape framelit dies and I matted them onto Coastal Cabana and Pineapple Punch scalloped circle die cuts.

You will find the fun stitched hearts in the Sweetly Stitched framelit die pack, pg 25 of the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  I die cut them with Lovely Lipstick cardstock using the tip noted above in this post.

The final touch was some Granny Apple Green 1/2″ ribbon on the card above, and some Pool Party & Silver Baker’s Twine on the other card in this post.  I also added some Red Rhinestones for a touch of glitz. 🙂
