A Simple Stunning Card Using Stampin'Up! Cottage Wreaths & Country Wreaths Dies

Today we're creating A Simple Stunning Card Using Stampin'Up! Cottage Wreaths & Country Wreath Dies. I haven't played with this set much so far...so you can image what fun I've had when I discovered the layering look of the wreath dies....here's today's card....

Cherry card

Here's a closer look at the wreath...

Cherry card cuThe wreath is layered over the Soft Seafoam Glimmer paper--unfortunately you can't get the full effect of the glimmer but imagine it on a sparkly bed....stunning!

We began with a Cherry Cobbler card base and covered that with cardstock put through the Quatrefoil embossing folder..that design is such a lovely background for a holiday creatuib.

Then we layered the Seafoam Glimmer "boards" and hung the wreath.

The wreath is two layers---the first is the more solid die using Shaded Spruce. Layered over that is the less dense wreath die in Mint Macaron--this color with the blue tones accents the Shaded Spruce green very well.

The bow die in this set is a great addition to the top and then we sparkled up the wreath with Red Rhinestones. And there you have it---simple & stunning.

But I didn't want to stop playing with these dies so I made another card using White as the background---and here's the result....

Card on whiteAnd we could go on trying out new colors...do that and let me see your results.

Stop back by Thursday and see a special little creation you won't want to miss!

Totally Awesome Gift Tag with Stampin'Up! Sweet Candy Cane Bundle!

Today we're creating a Total Awesome Gift Tag with Stampin'Up! Sweet Candy Cane Bundle! Tuesday we created a very simple card using the same Sweet Candy Cane set using a really quick trick--if you missed it---check it out here...https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/11/a-simple-trick-to-creating-with-stampinup-sweet-candy-cane-bundle-wtihout-stamping.html.

Christmas gift tags are one of my favorite parts of the whole gift giving experience...

Tag

... a little closer look at the candy cane...

Tag with

The tag base is cut with the large label die in the Seasonal Labels set...this was in last year's holiday mini catalog & carried over in the annual catalog...it's a wonderful base for tags---just the right size.

Today we did stamp the cane in red on white cardstock & die cut. Then layered several greeneries & topped it off with those red glimmer sprigs (Leaves of Holly dies).  To tie it all together we added a white glitter organdy bow--it's just the right touch & doesn't overpower the remainder of the design. (Did you know you can color this ribbon with your makers or your ink pad to coordinate with any color you need?)

All this beauty lies atop the Sweetest Christmas designer series paper & a white scalloped die cut circle.

For the next few weeks we'll be exploring other fun sets in the holiday mini--first with a card & the second design of the week will be a gift tag....keep following!

I'll give you full directions below followed by the supply list to order your supplies.

Remember: If you use this month's host code (G4RX6ZUY) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Die cut the base label (Seasonal Labels) from Real Red cardstock; punch an approximate 1/4" hole in the top.

2. Cut designer paper (Sweetest Christmas) 2 X 3: adhere to the center with glue.

3. Die cut a scalloped circle (Layering Circle dies approx 2 3/4 diameter) from Basic White cardstock; adhere to center of the designer paper

4. Stamp right hook candy cane in Real Red ink on white cardstock, die cut & adhere to circle at a slight angle.

5. Die cut two double pine sprigs (Christmas Banners) from Evening Evergreen glimmer paper; adhere one with glue dot angled from center to upper left and the other from center angled to lower right.

6. Die cut 2 greenery (Christmas Banner) from Shaded Spruce cardstock; adhere as described above.

A Simple Trick to Creating with Stampin'Up! Sweet Candy Cane Bundle wtihout Stamping...

Today I"ll show you A Simple Trick to Creating with Stampin'Up! Sweet Candy Cane Bundle without Stamping the candy cane!!! About this time of year I'm looking for all the shortcuts I can find because I see Christmas looming quickly in our future...so here's the "tricky card"....

Card2a bit of a different angle...

Cardand a close up of the candy cane.

Card cu

After seeing the card can you tell what the secret is to "no stamping?" Yes, we simply die cut the top white layer over the striped designer series paper (2nd layer).  Pretty easy, right? The result is an awesome perfect cane without having to stamp and then die cut! 

We added some sparkle with the greenery (from Mistletoe Magic dies) and the red rhinestones above the verse on the scalloped white circle.  

The small "stripey" look of the gingham embossing folder seemed perfect to coordinate with the stripe in the designer paper for our candy cane!

So what's better than a lovely card that is so simple to create and looks like a million bucks? Well, stop back by on Friday (because Thursday you'll be eating turkey) and take a look at the awesome gift tag we created with this set!

Create an Autumn or Thanksgiving Treat Box or Table Favor with Stampin'Up! Envelope Boxes

Today we’re going to Create an Autumn or Thanksgiving Treat Box or Table Favor with Stampin'Up! Envelope Boxes. Tuesday we created a cute little turkey treat box—if you missed it check it out herehttps://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/11/creating-a-turkey-treat-box-with-stampinup-design-a-treat-box-dib.html

Here's today's creation...

Envelope treat box 1

Envelope treat box 2

Using the preformed Stampin’Up! Envelope Box—the hard work is done for you…there’s no die, just fold on the score lines and use the pre-adhesive tabs to put this cutie together.

But before we put it together you’ll notice that the boxes are white---but the box we’re creating today is a soft pale gold….how did that happen? We simply used a blending brush and the Pale Papaya ink pad.  This means you can have any color you need for a gift box to match your theme of the day.

The “greenery” springs come from Golden Beauty Dies, Sunflower Dies, and Christmas Banner dies. Of course, you can use any greenery dies to create your masterpiece.

We tied all this beauty together with the Vanilla & Gold ribbon---that gold just adds that sparkle that brings the box to life. The organdy middle of the ribbon lets any base color come through which makes this a very versatile embellishment.

Stop back by next week to see what Christmas goodies we’ll be making!

When placing an online order and using this month’s host code (G4RX6ZUY) you will receive $5 in Stampin’Up! Product for each $50 you purchase (my choice of product).

Directions:

1. Using a blending brush give the outer box a coating of Pale Papaya ink. When box is dry adhere sides using the pre-glued tabs.

Note: Before closing box be sure to add your treat

When treats are enclosed use tab attachments to secure closure.

2. Die cut the following:

          *large and small sprig (Golden Beauty dies) from Gold glimmer paper

          *leafy sprig (Christmas Banner dies) from Mossy Meadow an from Old Olive.

          *double sprig (Sunflower dies) from Pumpkin Pie.

Adhere these to box top with glue dots (see photo for placement.)

3. Cut approximately 18” of vanilla/gold ribbon. Loop around box and tie in a bow where the greenery pieces meet.

Your box is ready for giving…if you added a small tag this would make a stunning place card holder that you guests can take home as a remembrance.
