Beautiful Friendship Flower Card Set

These Beautiful Friendship flower cards started out as a “one sheet wonder” – have you done that before?  I stamped the entire 8-1/2×11 Whisper White cardstock piece with all the flowers and leaves, then cut it into 1/4ths for the 4 card fronts.  I love how pretty these cards turned out, and loved embellishing them with different greetings, ribbons, and mounting them on 4 different colored card bases.

The card below is mounted on a Thick Whisper White folded card base, and the greeting is from the Country Home stamp set, stamped in Rococo Rose ink on a die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, mounted onto a round Stitched Shape die cut.  I tied it up with the 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and added some pink rhinestones from the Peacock Rhinestone pack.

To bring out the Seaside Spray flowers, I mounted the card below on Seaside Spray cardstock  – a new In Color – and used Seaside Spray ribbon wrapped around the card.  Did you see what I did with just a piece of the Stitched Label die????  🙂   The greeting is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink (another new In Color) and it’s found in the Bloom and Grow stamp set.

I wanted to play up the Mango Melody on this card below, so mounted the stamped floral piece on a folded Mango Melody card base and added some of the new 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon in Crushed Curry.  I think it goes perfectly!!  The greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

I really love these colors together.. I used Mango Melody, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Pear Pizzazz.  Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray are new 2019-2021 In Colors. See ALL the new In Colors HERE.

A Rococo Rose cardstock base really brings out the stamped Rococo Rose roses on this card, and I also tried layering 2 die cut pieces from the Perfect Parcel dies set.. I really liked how that came out!!

What do you think? Wouldn’t this make a lovely set of 4 cards as a gift? Wrap them up in the Acetate Card Box with 4 Whisper White envelopes!?

Repurposing Stampin’ Up! Framelit Envelopes

I was packaging up some gifts for my Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators who achieved a title promotion in November, and at the same time, I was also taking the new Occasions 2019 catalog framelits out of the plastic envelopes and putting them on magnet cards (see this post), and I thought, hmmmmm why don’t I repurpose the plastic envelopes, decorate them, and use them as little gift packets for my team!

Repurposing Stampin' UP! framelit plastic envelopes with 2019 Occasions catalog designer paper and ribbon to use as gift packet holders for my Luv 2 Stamp Group. By Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

As you can see below, I have PLENTY of these empty Stampin’ Up! framelit plastic envelope pouches.  I have kept them all.  I knew someday I’d find the perfect project for them!! 🙂   (I store them on magnet sheets in Avery Elle plastic sleeves now).

Repurposing empty Stampin' Up! framelit packaging for gifts for my Luv 2 Stamp Group Team of demonstrators. Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Tip to create these packets:  Cut any size strip of designer paper you wish (mine were about 2″ x 5-1/2″) and use Tear & Tape to adhere them to the flap.  The rectangle of DSP will go over the edge of the packet a bit, I used my Paper Snips to trim it.  You could even cover the entire flap!!  

I wrapped new Stampin’ Up! ribbon around the flap after adhering the paper.  I secured the ribbon with a couple of glue dots so that it doesn’t slip off the flap.  I used brand new 2019 Occasions catalog ALL MY LOVE and HOW SWEET IT IS designer paper and all new ribbons, too! You can see them all at the bottom of this post in the product photos.

I used one of my personalized handlettered rubber stamps from Holly at BurnsNestDesigns on a Stitched Shape Oval die cut, then layered each die cut onto a coordinating Layered Oval scallop die cut.  I color coordinated the Epoxy Heart Droplets by coloring them with my Stampin’ Blends markers.

Each gift packet contains some brand new 2019 and some current Stampin’ Up! accessory items, just a small token of celebration for my personal recruits who advance in title!  The little 2-3/4″ square notes were created and printed through Vista Print.

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?
