You can use the Timeless Label Punch, Stitched Nested Dies, or the different Layering Shapes Dies to highlight the sentiments on your projects.  I created four cards to share with you using the Everything Festive Stamp Set and Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes.

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive Holiday card ideas using Scalloped Note Cards & envelopes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used several common elements on each of these cards. The sentiments are from the Everything Festive stamp set, heat embossed and cut with the Layering Ovals Dies. I wanted to use the layered scallop around the sentiment to tie it in with the scalloped note cards & envelopes. Each card has a 1 1/2″ strip of Designer Series Paper layered with Foil or Glimmer Paper. The inside of the card has a 1/2″ strip of the DSP with a 1/4″ strip of the same foil or glimmer paper. I had so much fun decorating the envelopes too! Here’s a picture of each card and coordinating envelope.

This card uses the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper, and Silver Embossing Powder. I heat embossed the envelope with snowflakes from the Seasonal Wreaths Stamp Set.

I couldn’t resist making another card with this gorgeous DSP from Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. It’s layered with copper foil. The sentiment is heat embossed with copper embossing powder. Here’s a peek at how I layered the bottom of the card on the inside.

The repeated layers ties it all together and the envelope gives a sneak peek at what’s inside.

This is my favorite one! I just love the little spider on the envelope! My friend, Rosanne Mulhern (heartfeltstamping.com), was visiting for the weekend and she suggested adding the spider. We always have so much fun stamping together and bouncing ideas off each other. The DSP is from Monster Bash and the sentiment on the inside is from the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set. (The spider is from the coordinating Wicked Dies. *These are available as a bundle.)

My last card is intended for Valentine’s Day; however, this sentiment could be used for any time of the year!

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive Valentine card idea using Scalloped Note Card and Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I stamped the sentiment for this one in Real Red Ink then heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. The red & white striped DSP is from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper and layered with Red Glimmer Paper. I added a red glimmer heart on the envelope with a glue dot.  It is punched from the Every Season Punch Pack.  I used the coordinating stamp set, To Every Season,  for the inside sentiment. (The stamp set and set of 4 punches are available as a bundle too!)

I stamped the sentiment off to the side so I could write a personal message.

I just love how the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes were the perfect colors for my seasonal holiday cards! The note cards & envelopes come in a set of 20 (5 each of 4 colors: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Powder Pink, Terracotta Tile). You can see more ideas for these note cards HERE.

D is for Deck the Halls with Designer Series Paper

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC!  Today I am sharing a quick & easy card design that showcases both sides of the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP). The Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper is one of my favorites in the holiday catalog. One of the many things I love about Stampin’ Up! is their color coordination! It makes it quick & easy to choose the right colors for any project! Every pack of DSP has the coordinating colors on the package as well as in the catalog. (No thinking necessary! LOL) Here’s a look at the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and the coordinating cardstock (Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock, and Gold Foil). Stampin' Up! Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s my first two Christmas cards for this year.

C is for Coffin Treat Box

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! What better Halloween gift box than a coffin box? The Coffin Treat Boxes are just right for Halloween treat giving.

Stampin' Up! Coffin Treat Boxes and Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set and Dies Halloween treat ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You get 12 coffin boxes and lids for $7. And they’re food safe! Perfect for your favorite trick-or treaters! These are quick & easy to put together with just a few Glue Dots or liquid adhesive. I love the way the sample project (on page 53 in the Holiday Catalog) embossed the lid with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder so I tried it on one of mine! So cool!

Stampin' Up! Coffin Treat Boxes and Word Wishes Dies Halloween treat idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These can be filled with just about anything from small gifts (jewelry, make up, perfume, nail polish, essential oils), gift certificates, practical needs (travel toothpaste, soap, floss, chapstick, etc.) to candy for your favorite college student, friend, family member, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (LOL), or trick-or-treat visitors! You can even line the inside with the Real Red Ruched Ribbon and/or stamp a sentiment on the bottom for the recipient to find under all the treats.

Stampin' Up! Coffin Treat Boxes and Word Wishes Dies Halloween treat ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I thought bones & skulls were the perfect candy treats to go inside a coffin. LOL  My daughter loves Kit Kits so these Halloween ones with skeleton wrappers were just what I was looking for! I found other fun treats for my son.

Stampin' Up! Coffin Treat Boxes and Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set and Dies Halloween treat ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The ribbon slides off like a belly band to open it. I might even hide a little money in the bottom of these for a fun surprise!

Stampin' Up! Coffin Treat Boxes and Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set and Dies Halloween treat ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love these little boxes and had so much fun making them! I stamped the one above using the web from the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set with Versamark Ink then heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I used the coordinating die to cut the little spider and popped him up with the new mini black Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and cut with a die from the Merry Christmas Dies and tied to the ribbon with some black & white twine. The little bats are from the Every Season Punch Pack which has a set of 4 mini punches.

I used the Word Wishes Dies to cut the Happy Halloween in purple (my daughter’s favorite color). I cut the spider in Smokey Slate and dangled him from the words with some silver thread.  I added the googly eyes for a spooky fun touch!
