Christmas Gift Giving Idea – Chapstick Holder

Stampin Up Chapstick Holder Polar Party Gift Ideas

Hello Folks. .   Today I have a great Christmas Gift Idea.  I would like to share this cute Chapstick Holder.  I used our Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut at 5 1/2 by 4 and scored at 2 1/2.  I turned it around and scored again at 2 1/2.  My designer paper is Be of Good Cheer (126896) and my stamp set is Polar Party (w122675/c122677).  You will just love ths set, so cute.  My tag is from Beautiful Season (w122680/c122682).  The little gift tag was just perfect for this.  I used markers to color my image.  I used Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding to keep it closed.  I also used three (3) mini glue dots to attach my chap stick.  These are just too cute and great stocking stuffers and Secret Santa Gfts.

Cased Christmas Ornament Card

SUO Polar Party Ornament Christmas Card Stampin Up Holiday Mini Spools Promotion

Hello Friends. . .  Today I'm featuring a darling stamp set called Polar
Party (W122675/C122677).  The card layout for this one is just too too
cute, don't you think?  I originally saw this card layout on Pinterest.
 
This card is posted on Splitcoast under the name flicflac Mama.  So
so clever, the creativity out there sometimes blows me away. 

My cardbase is Night of Navy, matted with Brushed Silver and matted
again with a piece of Whisper White.  I embossed it with our Northern
Flurry Folder and embellished them with Jewels.  Next I used our
Ornament Punch.  Place it as far up the card front as possible and
center.  I stamped my little bear with Black Stazon Ink and colored him
with markers.  Punched a 1/8" hole with my hand held punch and used
some silver cord (retired).  My sentiments, both inside and out come
from one of our Hostess Sets called Wacky Wishes.  I also stamped
the inside with snowflakes from our Snow Swirled Stamp Set.  Oh I
almost forget add a large Pearl to the top of his cap for a little pizzazz.

Just in case you can't see in the
picture,
the bear and his background
are raised with dimensionals.  This
is so cute and is a very impressive
Christmas Card to add to your stack
 If you have any questions please
I'm only an email away but I'm sure
you can get through it pretty easily,
just take your time. I also raised the
Whisper White piece with foam tape.
It worked like a charm.

SUO No Peeking Stampin Up Holiday Mini $99 Starter Kit

Hello There. . .  Today I would like to share my third Christmas
Stamp A Stack card.  Isn't it cute as a button.  My first two cards where
on the more serious side of Christmas so I wanted this on to be whimsy.
It turned out to be very traditional in style.  My stack is still a work in
progress.  I need a couple more cards to show my loyal following so
they can choose their favorites. 

My card base is Cherry Cobbler and is matted with one of our new
In Colors Gumball Green.  When the new catty came along I was
not sure I liked Gumball Green.  It seemed to green.  Somewhere
along the way I must have changed my mind because I have used
it all and need to order more.  Goes to show you never say
never.  The designer paper is to sing for.  I love this year's Christmas
paper Be of Good Cheer #126896.  It has some great colors and
patterns.  Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!

SUO No Peeking Stampin Up Holiday Mini $99 Starter Kit

My stamp is the whimsical No Peeking set (W126190/C126292) on
pg 23 of the catty.  All four images are just great.  Later I will show
you the tags that I made with them for my craft shows this fall. 
Too cute.  Of course my focal point is the snowman and I inked him
with Early Expresso and punched him out with a 1.5 circle punch non
SU.  For a substitute You can use our Circles #2 Originals Die #114526.
My scallop is from our 2 3/8" Scallop Punch #118874 and I pierced
it with out piercing tool.  For a little shine and glimmer I used our
Brights Glimmer Brads #121006.

I hope you have enjoyed my ramblings today and that I have
inspired you to start thinking about your Christmas Cards.  It's
never too early.  To purchase today's products you can shop

Using Plaids from Frostwood

Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Frostwood Designer Paper Delicate Doillies

Hello Folks. . . Happy Thursday

First things first I want to wish Kayleigh a Happy Happy 13th Birthday.  Today I will be spending a lot of time getting ready for her special evening.

My card today is a Christmas one, boy it's not that far away, maybe six weeks.  Now is the time to be making your Christmas Card list and gettin' those supplies ready to go.

The card I have to share today is clean and simple using some of our new desiger paper called Frostwood.  I'm a plaid lover so I especially like this designer paper pack.  My card base is Cherry Cobbler matted with Whisper White.  My next layer is Garden Green punched with my fav the Scallop Trim Border Punch and matted with a Houndstooth paper from Frostwood.  Next is another layer of Cherry Cobbler and some more plaid.  My focal poin it a Scallop Circle, pick whatever size you like, I nested it with some circles.  My stamp set is Delicate Doillies (W122590/C122592), boy I bet you are thinking that's not a Christmas set, but it works pretty darn good, don't you think?  It kind of has a quilt look to it so I added some bling for a little pizzazz.  My sentiment is from Petite Pairs (W122495/C122497).  It sure does feel good to have a matching sentiment set.  Now we have words for both the outside and the inside.  Good job Stampin' Up. 

Now it's your turn.  I would love to see some of your creations.  I'm always looking for new inspiration.

Snow Much Fun With Button Buddies

Good Morning Ya All.  Happy Thursday !!

Stampin Up Button Buddies, Snow Much Fun  Christmas Card Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Today I have a Christmas Card to share with you using the snowman stamp from Button Buddies

There are quite a few layers on this one.  My cardbase is Shimmary White, topped with a piece of Poppy Red DP from A Pocketful of Posies.  Next I pulled out a Baja Breeze piece from Pocketful of Posies  and mounted it on SW too.  I still have aother layer using a piece of Basic Black from the Neutral Designer Series Pater.  Now for the fun stuff.  For my pretty lacey circle I used a nestie but Stampin' Up now has a brand new die cut called Perfect Pennants that will work beautifully.  It's on my wish list.  LOL  I stamped my image on SW and nested it on a punched Basic Black circle.  For the red hat I stamped Mr. Snowman again in Poppy Red and cut it out with our Snips.  Easy Peasy!!!

For my sentiment I made a flag and stamped the words from Snow Much Fun.  Added a small flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch for some added pizzazzzzzzzzz!!!  I tied a bow with our 5/8" Whisper White Satin Ribbon, placed a red button with our Cherry Cobber twine and tied another bow.

I'm still working on my medallions.  I hope to have them finished soon.  I have to decided on the size of the wreath.  I think I'm going with a 7" round.

Stampin Up Big Shot Bigz Die Cut Holiday Stocking SUO Holiday Mini SUO Christmas Gifts

Good Morning To Ya.  Today I have a fun project to share.  I'm
featuring a new product from the Holiday Mini.  It is the Holiday Stocking Bigz Die.  Oh so cute.  You can find it on
pg 24 of the Holiday Mini #124098.  It is just the right size to use as a stocking stuffer (candy canes, gift card, small goodies).
You can hang it on your tree or even your mantle.  I'm going to use them as gift card holders for my children this year. 

My colors are Cherry Cobbler, Shimmery White and designer
paper from the Frostwood Lodge designer paper pack.  You can also find that in the Holiday Mini on Pg 28.  If you are a plaid lover like I am Frostwood Lodge #124002 will be a must have.  There are many ways for you to decorate the cuff of this stocking.  This time I choose to use a new stamp set called Dear Santa W123832 C123834.  It is a small
set but packs a big punch.  I can't wait to make another one and use the new embellishments (Stitched Felt and Mini Jingle Bells)
on pg 30 of the Holiday Mini.
