O is for Ornaments

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! I love to decorate for the holidays and have collected so many ornaments over the years that I put up several trees. (My son refers to our home as the “forest” during the holidays. LOL) One tree has a collection of White House ornaments from my mother-in-law.  She gave us one every year and I have continued this tradition after her passing as my kids love this tree as much as my husband and me. It is a beautiful reminder of a wonderful lady! We have several other “theme” trees; however, my favorite tree to decorate is the family tree with my kids homemade ornaments from over the years. (I also have a photo ornament of them from every year which brings back memories as I put them on the tree.) So, now that you know all about my love of ornaments, you can understand why the Christmas Gleaming Bundle (which includes the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set and Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack) was among my “must haves” from the holiday catalog! Here’s a look at the bundle.

Here’s a fun project I made.

Stampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack 3D ornament tag or gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love punches! They make it quick & easy to create! You can stamp and punch different ornaments from the stamp set or punch Designer Series Paper like I did for this project. Do you recognize this DSP? It is a special limited edition from a new suite, Christmastime is Here, which will be available November 1st.

Sampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper (available Nov. 1st) - For inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This paper is absolutely gorgeous! *I will be offering a special product share so you can get a taste of the paper, ribbon, and embellishments without breaking the bank! (Look for more details coming soon!)

I punched 20 of each ornament from two different patterns of the DSP, folded 15 of each in half and glued 3 together for each ornament. Then each one was glued to a flat (unfolded) punched ornament. You need 5 large ornaments and 5 small ornaments to make this project.

I punched a 1 3/8″ Circle from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and glued the 5 large ornaments first then the 5 smaller ornaments in between.

Next I punched a 1 1/4″ gold foil circle and a 1″ circle from the DSP and layered the two together.  I stacked 3 Stampin’ Dimensionals in the middle of the ornament and adhered the layered circles.  I used the Gold Glimmer Ribbon (available Nov. 1st) to make a bow and attached it with Glue Dots in the center. I stamped a sentiment on Whisper White Shimmery Cardstock and punched it out with the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch.  I added a ribbon loop and a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (also from the Christmastime is Here Suite available Nov. 1st) and adhered on the back.

This can be used as a tag on a gift or wine bottle, ornament on a tree, or as a display on a table.

Stampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack 3D ornament gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I purchased the display stand shown at Pier One Imports. You can find different versions at most big box stores in the craft section. This would make a wonderful gift for a friend, family member, or hostess. These colors are perfect for my mom (but I love it so much I might not be able to part with it)! I will be definitely be making more! I can’t wait to try different color combinations!

Stampin' Up Gather Together Bundle with Decorative Mask technique Thanksgiving or Thank You card and gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sample for the Gather Together Bundle on page 5 in the Holiday Catalog caught my eye and I knew I wanted to recreate it. Here’s the inspiration and my card side by side. I used the same stamp set but different color ink for my background. I layered mine with Gold Foil and added a strip of vellum.

Who knew the background was actually sponged using a mask?! Oh my, now I have another favorite technique! I have been having so much fun playing with the new Decorative Masks.  They are found on page 35 in the Holiday Catalog and I missed them the first few times I browsed through the catalog. Take a look at these fun designs.

Stampin’ Up! Basic Pattern Decorative Masks

I used sponge daubers and 4 ink colors (Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, Crumb Cake, and Delicata Golden Glitz) to get the effect I wanted. It was so much fun! I did the envelope too!

Stampin' Up Gather Together Bundle with Decorative Mask technique Thanksgiving or Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut the leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies from Grapefruit Grove, Crushed Curry, and Cajun Craze cardstock.  I love how the dies cut and emboss at the same time! I sponged the leaves with the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink and popped them up with Dimensionals on top of the vellum strip and Gold Thread.

This is one of the cards everyone made at my monthly card club and the ladies loved it! This sentiment works for a Thanksgiving or thank you card. Of course you can easily change the sentiment and use it for birthday, get well, thinking of you, etc.  I had the piece I used to demonstrate and not wanting to waste anything I decided to use it to decorate one of the new Gold Mini Pizza Boxes. Talk about easy! All I had to do was cut it to 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and wrap the box with Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

I cut and sponged the leaves the same as I did for the card and punched a 2 1/4″ vellum circle. I added the gold thread to tie in with the card and now I have a coordinating gift box. Here’s what I put inside….

… leaf shaped wax melts! The best part….I found them at the Dollar Store! (Remember….It’s all about the presentation! LOL) I stamped the large leaf from the stamp set in gold and the sentiment is from the same set (Gathered Leaves) stamped in Cajun Craze. The perfect little gift for a hostess.  It just so happens I will be needing this hostess gift for Sunday as I am going to a friend’s house to make “velvet” pumpkins. We were told to bring a glue gun, old tube socks or batting, and some fabric. I have no idea how to do this but it sounds like fun! Here’s another look at the card and gift.

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.

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.

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!

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!
