Stampin Up Fresh Florals In Color gift bag idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My Paper Pumpkin box arrived last week and all I can say is WOWZERS! It is a winner! You can use these adorable stockings for so many things…to hold gift cards, decorate packages, as table favors (fill with treats or silverware), ornaments, etc.  Sister Corda would have loved this month’s kit!!! I could just see her tucking some of her homemade candy in these to give to others.

Check out the how-to video to see everything in the kit and how easy it is to put these projects together!

Stampin’ Up! will be sharing project ideas combining elements from the coordinating Season of Style October (Pining for Plaid) and November (Back in Plaid) kits later today, November 21st, in a Facebook Live broadcast at 8 PM ET (7 PM CT, 6 PM MT, 5 PM PT)

O is for Ornaments

Welcome to my Holiday ABC series! I really enjoy decorating for the holidays and I love to put different theme trees throughout our home.  One of my favorite trees is our collection of White House ornaments given to us by my mother-in-law. My husband has continued the tradition of giving these ornaments to family and friends. I made some 3 x 3 cards to enclose with the ornaments we will give this year.

Stampin Up Seasons of Whimsy gift enclosure card idea colored with Stampin Blends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Seasons of Whimsy Stamp Set and the New Stampin’ Blends (available today!) to create these cards. The exclusive Seasons of Whimsy stamp set is available with host rewards.  Contact me for more information on how you can earn this stamp set (found on page 3 in the Holiday Catalog). This is a great set for Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day (or anytime you want to let someone know you love them)!

Stampin Up Seasons of Whimsy Stamp Set - For inspiration and ordering visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My card base is 3 x 6 Thick Whisper White scored at 3″. I stamped the ornaments on Thick Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them with the new Stampin’ Blends. I used both the light and dark markers on my ornaments then fussy cut them.  I added silver metallic thread to the back of each ornament and adhered with mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. My DSP measures 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and is layered with Basic Black cardstock 1/8″larger. I attached Silver Bows with Glue Dots and added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Matching envelopes add the finishing touch.

M is for Merry Music and more!

Welcome to my Holiday ABC series. I love Christmas music!  I could listen to Christmas carols year round! Unfortunately I can’t sing. (Many a friend will agree!  LOL)  At least my Pre K students don’t seem to mind.  I may not be able to sing the right notes; however, I create some “notes”. Today’s cards feature the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper. I made a set of note cards for my daughter’s former violin teacher. My daughter visits her when she is home from college and brings her our homemade fudge for Christmas every year. I know she will appreciate these cards (maybe not as much as her favorite fudge but at least these are calorie free).

This is a clean & simple layout and a great way to showcase your favorite DSP. (Don’t forget select DSP is on sale through the end of October…Buy 3, Get 1 FREE! Only a few days left to stock up & save!)

The DSP measures 3×3 and I layered each with a 3 1/4 square of Basic Black cardstock. I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to cut my boughs from Garden Green, Old Olive, and Real Red cardstock. I adhered these and the Red Ribbon bow with Glue Dots. I stamped the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases in Basic Black and cut it (and the Real Red scallop piece) with the Layering Ovals Framelits. I adhered the sentiment layer to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Quick & easy! What a great gift idea for teachers, hostesses, musicians, etc. You get 4 each of 6 double-sided designs in the pack so there’s plenty of paper to make matching envelopes too!

K is for Kit…Be Merry

Welcome to my Holiday ABC series!  Today I am sharing a fun kit from the Holiday catalog… the Be Merry Kit. This all-inclusive kit has everything necessary to make 12 rosette ornaments (6 each of 2 designs). These are so festive and fun to make!

Stampin Up Be Merry Kit festive ornaments and tags - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Look at everything that comes in the kit!

Stampin Up Be Merry Kit - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can hang them on your tree or wreath or use as gift tags or on packages.

I love the idea of putting them on gift bags and packages and then the recipient can hang on their tree! (I used a piece of washi tape to adhere the string inside the bag.  It’s easy to remove to hang the ornament.)

I added the circle tags to the back.  The Cheers to Years Stamp Set is great for making a tag for a bottle of wine or champagne and there are so many stamp sets that have to and from stamps (Labels to Love, Snowflake Sentiments, Tags & Trimmings…).

Check out this video to see how quick & easy these are to put together!

I had so much fun making these and love that I have a head start on tags/gifts! These would be great to give as a little gift to coworkers! Here’s a few close ups!
