Ombre Gift Bags for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “2021-2023 New In-Colors.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Then, at the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.Stampin' Up!

I love the gorgeous new Ombre Gift Bags which come in each of the new 2021-2023 In Colors! You can use these for treat or gift bags. I decorated my bags using the Scalloped Contour Dies and Flowers of Friendship Bundle.Stampin' Up! Flowers of Friendship Bundle -visit juststampin.com for inspiration and ordering information - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The Flowers of Friendship Bundle includes the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set and the Flowers & Leaves Punch. The flower imagery of the set mixes simplicity and elegance. It’s perfect for different coloring and stamping techniques. The punch includes flowers and leaf shapes that you can use as you please. Mix them together or layer them up to create a variety of flowers that will embellish any of your projects. You save 10% when your purchase the bundle. The Scalloped Contour Dies are my favorite new dies! (They are part of the Color & Contour Bundle or can be purchase separately.)

The scalloped edge borders in this set range in size, allowing you to decorate a card front or create scalloped labels for your sentiments. They’re fun to layer too! I will be sharing more projects with these dies!

I’m sure you can figure out how I decorated these bags but here’s a few tips. I inked the flower image in Evening Evergreen then masked the flowers (you can use tape, or post it notes to cover the flowers) before stamping on Basic White.

Next I cut it out using the Scalloped Contour Die. I used the Soft Succulent Blends to color in the leaves. Each of the flowers were stamped then punched with the Flowers & Leaves Punch. (*I cut my cardstock to 1 3/4″ strips to make it easier to slide in and punch without a lot of wasted cardstock.)

To add a little depth to the flowers I used my stylus to roll the center of the flower to curl the petals. You could also use a bone folder to curl the ends but for smaller flowers I find this technique easier without creasing the cardstock.

The flowers were adhered with a Mini Glue Dot and I added In Color Jewels to the center of each for a little bling. The In Color Ribbon adds the finishing touch! (This ribbon is gorgeous and so easy to work with to tie a bow without adding bulk!) I popped up the scalloped panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a look at each one.

Layering Squares Flowers For Every Season Ghirardelli Gift Box

I have been busy this week finishing up this month’s projects for my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to go. These kits will go out in the mail tomorrow. I’m so excited about this month’s 3D project I just had to share it with you!
Stampin' Up! Flowers For Every Season Layering Squares Gift Box idea for Mother's Day - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This adorable Ghirardelli gift box is really quick & easy to make. It could hold other chocolates (Andes Mints, Nuggets), hand cream, etc. The flaps tuck inside and you can add a stamped sentiment inside the lid.

This would be a “sweet” little treat for Mother’s Day, birthday, etc. I stamped the sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Just Jade Ink.

Unfortunately most of the products used to create this box are retiring soon! If you don’t already have them in your craft supply, trust me, you need them as they are some of my absolute favorite “go to” items! (*Note- “Last-Chance” products are only available while supplies last!) You can view the complete product list below.

My Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet sold out again this month; however, if you love this box as much as I do, I am offering a kit to go for just the box for $5 (includes shipping). I will email you the tutorial to put your box together when it ships to you. To order, send me an email with “Gift Box” in the subject line. To send payment, go to paypal.com, sign in or register for an account, click “Send” and fill in my email address (j.stark@myactv.net). Fill in the amount ($5 which includes shipping), and Continue. If you do not use PayPal, you may send me a check. (*Note- Per Stampin’ Up! policy, I must wait for your payment to arrive before sending your kit.) I package everything you need cut, scored, and ready for you to stamp and assemble! You just cut, and adhere per the instructions. You can use whatever stamp set you have for sentiment of your choice.

Seed Packet Tutorial and Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet To Go

Today’s the day to sign up for my April Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to go! I have another fun kit for you this month! As always my kits are intended to be versatile so you can use different stamps sets that you already have. Here’s the details if you are interested in my monthly kit:

Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet TO GO cost:  $20 (includes shipping and handling)
*Don’t wait to order…Last month’s kit sold out in 3 days!

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t need a specific stamp set. And you don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit and shipped to you!  You just need to stamp and adhere.

Here’s my 3D project (seed packet holder) from last month’s kit.Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Seed Packet holder with Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Yesterday I shared some fun seed packet holders that make a quick & easy gift for Mother’s Day or any occasion. These seed packets holders shown above were included in my kit to go last month. I am sharing the tutorial with you today so you can get an idea of what’s included in my kits as well as my easy to follow instructions.

Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

*Please note… I can only accept a limited number of orders for my Just Stampin’ Card Kits and 3D Project Buffet each month. I may reach my limit before the deadline.
