Christmas Gift Card Idea and Stampin’ Ups On Line Extravaganza Continues


Christmas Gift Card Holder Stampin Ups On Line Extravaganza

Good Morning To Ya All.  Stampin' Ups On Line Extravaganza  is in full swing.  You have till Nov 30th to take advantage of all the savings that are available.  Up to 60% off on selected merchandise.  What are you waiting for.  Click here to view the list. 

Over the weekend I had a request for a gift card so I went looking in my stash and came up empty.  About this time last year I came across a very cute idea from Vicki over at Its A Stamp Thing.  She made the cutest little gift card.  It looks just like a Christmas Present.  So I got busy and made a version of my own.

I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock #119685 4.25 x 11 and scored at 4.25.  The fold.  That left my top piece a little long, so trim it to the size that you like.  Next I found some retired Christmas dp and cut it just 1/8" smaller.  I had just received some of our new Silver Glitter Paper #124005 and thought I would use that for my box lid.  So sparklely!!!  For my bow on top I used our Small and Large Oval Punches.  To make the bow cut  a 2" strip of glitter paper.  Holding your paper vertically punch an oval with your small punch first, then go back with the larger oval, center it up over the opening and punch.  Viola' you have a perfect bow piece.  Do this several times and arrange them the way you like.  My box top didn't want to lay flat for me, so I stamped my sentiment and used a round circle punch and then nested it with a scallop circle.  This does the trick very nicely, just be sure you know where it is going first before you adhere it with dimensionals.  TIP:  If you plan on mailing this be sure when you attached your bow pieces that it doesn't extend over the envelopeFor some added embellisment I punched a Snowflake with the snowflake punch #119852 and added some more bling from our Basic Rhinestones #119246.

Christmas Gift Card Holder Stampin Ups On Line Extravaganza

For the inside I cut another piece of Christmas Designer Paper and used our Word Window Punch for the Gift Card to slip into.  Starting on one side punch your window and then slide it down to the other side and punch again.  This gives you a large enough opening for you gift card to fit into.

Well thats it for me today.  I hope you can take advantage of Stampin' Ups annual Christmas Extravaganza.  You can shop at my On Line Store 24/7.  Once again thanks for all your support and if I can help with any of your shopping or papercarfting please contact me.  I would love to help.  Remember for every $50 you will earn a Sandy' Star.

Have a wonderful stamping day.  Toodles


Christmas Favor

SUO Christmas Craft Fair Favor

Hello Folks. . .  Today I have a fun little craft fair project. You can use it for anything you want.  For me I want it to hold a gift card and a Ghirardelli chocolate square.  This is how I made it.  I took a 6" paper doily and folded it like you would a diaper.  You can decorate it any way you like.  I made a small lollie, placed it on a scallop circle and used one of our cute tags from Tags til Christmas (W120847/C121169).  For some added support I also die cut our large circle scallop #113468 and attached my lollie to it.  This is just to easy peasy and you can decorate it for just about any holiday that you need a cute favor for.

Quilted Spice Cake Card


On Line Extravaganza Quilted Card w/Spice Cake

Hello Everyone. . .  welcome to the day after turkey day.  Today I have a pretty snazzie birthday card to share.  I took our Top Note Die Cut and quilted it.  This is how it's down.  Punch one inch squares with our handy dandy 1" punch #124094 and arrange them on a 5.5 x 4.25 piece of cardstock.  Make sure that they are butted up right next to each other just like a patchwork quilt would look like.  Then I used my Big Shot #113439 and the Top Note Die Cut #113463.  Doesn't it look stunning.  Of course I had lots of pieces of Spice Cake Designer Paper #124003 so that was my paper of choice.  TIP:  It's a great way to use up small pieces that you just hate to discard.  My cardbase is a piece of Early Expresso #119686.  Once I got my top note finished I adhered it to my base and then used my Final Press EB Folder #115963 to give it a quilted look.  Next time I think I will try the Square Latice Folder.

My stamp set is a Hostess Set called Posy Punch (W122480/C122482).  I stamped it in Pool Party Ink  #122938 and inked my center with Early Expresso Ink #119670.  Punched it out with our Fancy Flower Punch #118073 and adhered with dimensionals.  I also used one of our new embossing folders called Designer Frames #123130, punched the center out with our Extra Large Oval Punch #119859.  My sentiment is from another hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes (W122615/C122617).  Click here to learn all about our Hostess Rewards Bonus Promotion.  Earn an extra $35 in hostess cash.

A Polar Party Cutie

Stampin' Up Polar Party Holiday Mini On Line Extravaganza

Hellio All. . .  Happy Tuesday and welcome to SandiesKorner.  I hope you guys got in the the great deals being offered yesterday from SU.  Don't fret you have till Nov 30th to take advantage of most deals.  30% to 60% off, it's worth taking a look at.  Click here to see the detailed list.

Today I have a very cute card using the Stamp Set Polar Party (W122675/C122677).  I must say I fell in love with these little guys, they are so darn cute.  I was looking for something a little different so I turned to my Basic Grey Designer paper.  Now I know it's not Stampin' Up, but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.  LOL  I colored in my penguin with SU markers and punched him out with a circle punch and used one of my nesties for the scallop circle.  Sometimes I find that the nesties have better sizes that you can nest with.  Does that make sense?  My sentiment I believe is retired but you get the idea and can use what you have on hand.  I attached my sentiment to our Snowflake punch #119852.  I use this punch every year, it is the perfect size.  I embellished it with a small red button, added some Cherry Cobber bakers twine #123125, and some of our new mini jingle bells #124116.  (to save your sanity, I suggest a needle threader to help thread the bells).  I also added one of our mini clothespens #122942 and dressed it up just a bit with a small strip of dp.  Added some Dazzeling Details #124117 (better known as glitter glue).  Be sure an pick some of this up before the Holiday mini is gone.  So much easier to use and no clean up.  Yippie!!!!!

Don't forget about our On Line Extravaganza, it's a great way to save some change (30 – 60%) off selected products.  Check out the link here to see all that is on sale.  I love being your Stampin Up Demonstrator.  For all your SU supplies please shop at my On Line Store 24/7 for all your shopping needs.

 Well that's it for me folks.  I have a lot of things to do to get ready for Turkey Day.  I'm sure you do as well.  If I don't get back on here before the big day, I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless You All.  Toodles

Gently Falling

SUO Gently Falling Stamp Set Stampin Up Holiday Mini Spice Cake Designer paper

Hello Folks and happy Monday to ya.  We had a beautiful week end here which meant getting out and trying to pickup leaves.  Not to say the least it was pretty warm here but very windy.  I had to battle it out and I'm afraid the wind won.  I did my best.  LOL

Toay I have a clean and simple cased card to share with you.  I am a little behind to say the least on purchasing this great stamp set Gently Falling (W123802/C123804), but dog gone it I finally got it.  I was browsing thur Splitcoast and came across this great looking card.  I believe the originator is Libby Fens.  Any who lets get to the heart of the card. 

My cardbase is a 5.5 x 4.25 piece of Very Vanilla #101650.  I nested another piece of Vanilla on top and embossed it with out Perfect Polka Dot EB #117335.  My designer paper, you guessed it, is from Spice Cake #124003.  If you like this paper be sure and stock up on it.  It will be gone on Jan 3rd when the Holiday Mini ends.  I then inked my stamps on some Shimmery White cardstock #101910 for a little pizzazz and cut them out with my Paper Snips.  My sentiment is from Falling Leaves #115368 and was stamped on Very Vanilla and punched with our Decorative Label Punch #120907.  I cut another label from Pool Party cardstock #122924 and trimmed it in half and nested it.  I still felt it looked a little naked so I searched thru my collection and found thiscute  littel curly thing in the Kindness Matters (W122900/C122902) stamp set.  I think it made a world of difference don't you?  For my pretty I also added a touch of our new 3/8" Ruffled Pool Party Ribbon #122975.  Thank you Libby for a beautiful card.

Well, that's all for me folks, this week is a pretty hetic one.  Stamp Club and Christmas Stamp A Stack is this week.  What was I thinking.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful stamping day.
