W is for Wine (and a Wonderful Weekend)

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! I will be wrapping up this series this week. I can’t wait to share what’s new!! I spent the weekend with some of my stamping friends in Hartford, Connecticut at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention. We had so much fun! We won lots of prizes and played with new products that will be coming out in the new January – June 2020 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.  I’ll share photos and more later this week. Lets get to today’s projects.

Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! I always like to have a few extra gifts on hand for hostess gifts and unexpected events (like when my husband comes home and says he needs gifts for his coworkers for tomorrow.) My friends and I like to enjoy a glass of wine when we get together so I always have a few bottles on hand. I like to dress up wine bottles with beautiful handmade tags.

Stampin' Up! Wine Tag idea made with Cheers Die and Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Cheers Die with some of the products from the Christmastime is Here Suite (Roses Dies, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, and Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper) to make this tag.  I love the elegant look with the Gold Foil on the Mossy Meadow! I chose the Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler cardstock because they match the wine bottle so well!

Here’s the details to make this simple wine tag.

Materials & Measurements

  • Mossy Meadow:  3 x 8 1/2 scored at 3″.  Center and punch a circle in the 3″ section using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.
  • Gold Foil: Cut Cheers Die and 2 design elements from Roses Dies, punch leaf
  • Cherry Cobbler: 3 x 3
  • Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: 3 x 2 3/4, scrap to fussy cut flower *Adhere flower and gold foil leaf with Stampin’ Dimensional.

*Tip: When adhering intricate dies I use the silicone craft sheet and apply liquid glue with a sponge dauber.

If you prefer chocolate to wine here’s another idea.

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around Wine Tag idea made with Cheers Die and Seasonal Wreath Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I stopped at the Lindt Chocolate Factory in Carlisle, PA on my way home from Hartford this weekend. It’s like walking in to chocolate heaven! I bought this “champagne” bottle for a Yankee Swap gift exchange we have every year. (Chocolate is always a big hit!)

I made this tag using the Tidings All Around Stamp Set with the All-Around Wreath Dies and Cheers Die. I sandwiched a piece of vellum between the wreath layers so you wouldn’t see the candy through the wreath.  I looped the ribbon and adhered it on the back of the wreath with some mini glue dots. I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots around the wreath and adhered a bow on top.

So which do you prefer…wine or chocolate? Here’s another look at both tags.

Let’s have some fun! I wonder if we watch some of the same tv shows.  Here’s a quote from one of my favorite series, “I drink wine and I know things.Who said that? What’s the name of the series? Leave a comment below and if you get both questions correct I will put your name in to a random drawing to win one of these wine tags.

Have a wonderful week!

V is for Valentine

Welcome back to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I have a card & gift to share with you. I used the Everything Festive Stamp Set with the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper to create this Valentine card and Hershey Nugget treat box.

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive Stamp Set and Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper Valentine card and Hershey Nugget Treat Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card could be used for anytime of the year to let someone know you love them.

Stampin' Up! Valentine Card Idea made with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Everything Festive Stamp Set, and Stitched Nested Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The designer series paper and gold shimmer ribbon I used are part of the Christmastime is Here Suite which is only available this month (while supplies last).  Here’s the details if you would like to make this card:

Materials & Measurements

  • Cherry Cobbler:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for card base
  • Gold Foil: 2 1/4 x 4 1/4, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, 1/4 x 6 for envelope flap,  scraps to cut hearts from Stitched Be Mine Dies
  • Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: 2 x 4 1/4, 3 x 4, 2 x 6
  • Whisper White: 2 x 3 1/2 to stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut with Stitched Nested Die, 4 x 5 1/4 for inside card
  • Gold Glimmer Ribbon: ~10 inches to wrap around DSP layer and tie a simple knot

You can use this card “formula” with other DSP and sentiments for any occasion. The ribbon layer and sentiment layer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love to give cards and little gifts that coordinate.  Here’s a simple Hershey Nugget Treat Box made from a 6 x 6 piece of Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Hershey Nugget Valentine treat box Idea made with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Everything Festive Stamp Set, and Stitched Nested Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Gold Foil Hearts are cut from the Stitched Be Mine Dies and added with Glue Dots. I followed Julie DiMatteo’s Video Tutorial for the Hinged-Lid Box.

Materials & Measurements

  • Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP – 6″ x 6″
    • First cut off a 2″ x 6″ piece and cut that into 4 – 1″ x 3″ pieces for the Hershey’s Nugget wraps
    • Then, with the remaining 4″ x 6″ piece, cut of 1/8″ from the 6″ side so you have a 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece
    • Score all 4 sides of the 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece at 5/8″
    • Then, along the 5-7/8″, score at 2-5/8″ and 3-1/4″

Fold and burnish along the score lines. Cut and notch the score lines on the long sides as shown below.

Add adhesive to the notched tabs, fold and tuck to assemble the box. Use the 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut a notch on the top of the box.

Wrap the Hershey Nuggets with 1 x 3 DSP strips. (*I used Glue Dots on each end of the DSP.) Here’s what the box looks like when you open it.

You can make this simple treat box for any occasion! What a “sweet” little treat to make for those you love!

I am in Hartford, Connecticut today for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event.  I have been looking forward to attending this event with my stamping friends and getting to see and play with new products that will be coming out in the 2020 Occasions Catalog in January.  I will be sharing sneak peeks of the new products and ideas when I get back!

Have a great day!

I purchased the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin for my mom’s birthday last month.  She loves to give my handmade cards so I stamped some different sentiments and decorated the cards with flowers I fussy cut from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Then I put them back in the tin and wrapped it with ribbon and tied a bow.  The pink & gold tin is so gorgeous by itself there’s no need for wrapping paper! Here’s a photo of her birthday card and some of the cards I made for her. (*You get 12 cards and 12 scalloped envelopes included with the tin.) Some of the stamp sets I used (as well as the Large Number Dies) are retired; however, many different sentiments will work.  Use what you have!
