I used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper and Celebration Tidings Bundle to pile on the layers for this simple Christmas card. I love the basic patterns and classic Christmas colors in the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. *One side is red and the other side is green. This paper is not just for Christmas!Stampin' Up!

Another favorite of mine has been the Celebration Tidings Bundle! I have created many cards and projects with this versatile bundle!

I  added a little texture with the Subtle 3D Embossing folder on my envelope and Very Vanilla cardstock layer.

Celebration Tidings Halloween Treats

Halloween is certainly going to be different this year.  Our small town usually has a huge Mummers Day Parade but due to the pandemic it is cancelled this year. I am happy that we are still planning to celebrate Halloween for the kids in our neighborhood and everyone is asked to follow certain guidelines. We will set up a table outside with treats so when kids trick-or-treat (socially distanced) they can pick up individually wrapped packages and not have to ring doorbells or have face to face contact to get their treat. I always love to see the kid’s costumes each year so I’m planning to sit outside (socially distanced) from the table so I’ll still be able to say hi to everyone!  I want to make it extra special for the kids this year so I am starting early to make a variety of treats so even those with allergies will have something to enjoy.

I used the Celebration Tidings Bundle. (I can’t stop playing with this set!!) The stamp set has you covered for several holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day) or any occasion using the “Just For You” sentiment. The 5 Layering Dies make it perfect for all size treats and more!

The Stampin’ Up! clear envelopes work great for packaging treats! Stampin' Up! Celebration Tidings tags for Halloween ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper to create the tag toppers for these. Simply cut out the DSP with the die, then line up the notches in the Paper Trimmer and score down the middle. Fold over the clear envelope and adhere with a few glue dots. You can easily open the envelope on the back without having to remove the tag topper. I used the smallest die for the sentiment layer. I love how the spider and bat coordinate with the DSP. The sentiment and spider are from the Celebrations Tidings stamp set and the bat is from Banner Year stamp set.

For a non chocolate Halloween treat I bought a big box of assorted chips.  I had fun decorating these! *You could put these fun bags to put in your child’s lunchbox for a special surprise!

Stampin' Up! Celebration Tidings bag topper tag ideas for Halloween treats - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used the two largest dies for the tag toppers on these. I love how the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Papers coordinate with the chips! The second smallest die was perfect for the added sentiment layer. I cut the DSP and white tags in half to get double from each die cut piece!

The Celebration Tidings Bundle is so versatile! The dies can be used as tag toppers, card fronts, and more! You can see more projects I created with this bundle HERE or HERE.

Let’s Celebrate World Cardmaking Day!


What are you planning to do today for World Card Making Day? I’m zooming with my fellow demonstrators and team members this afternoon. We’re planning a little show and tell to share some projects we have been working on.  I can’t stop playing with the Celebrations Tidings Stamp Set and Celebration Labels Dies!

Stampin' Up! Celebration Tidings card ideas for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to create fun and different cards! This card idea is one of the exclusive card tutorials available this month with an online order of $40 or more. (*See my Just Stampin’ Rewards below.) If you purchase the Celebrate Tidings Bundle, you’ll also receive a kit to make one of the cards featured in the tutorials. I have more awesome card ideas and a fun fold tutorial to share in addition to today’s cards! As you can see this bundle is so versatile!  I used the different die cut shapes and stamps to create a Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas card. (And this is just 1 of the tutorials you’ll receive!) Here’s a look at each card.

The front of the Halloween card is embossed with the Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder.

I used sentiments from A Wish For Everything on the inside of the cards.

Which one is your favorite? Leave me a comment below and I’ll pick a random winner to send one of these cards to! I’d love to hear what you are doing today to celebrate!

Today is a great day to make some cards, mail cards, or donate some cards in celebration of World Card Making Day! Let’s celebrate the joy of card making and sharing handmade cards with others!

Ideas for Sharing Your Hand-made Cards

  • Give cards as gifts to friends and family: Package them up with a ribbon or in a cute box with envelopes for a ready-to-send present. I do this all the time  My mom and sisters love to receive my card gift sets. Click HERE to see 2 ways to present your cards for gift giving (that I shared back in 2016).
  • Local Assisted Living Communities: There are two ways to reach residents. One is to write notes in cards – ’thinking of you’ is always a great sentiment. The other option is to deliver cards and envelopes that residents can use to mail for their own card-sending occasions. My suggestion is to phone your local assisted living community and ask which they’d prefer and how many residents/cards they would like. I’ve shared several cards and gifts I’ve made for our local nursing home HERE and HERE.
  • Churches: Many churches send cards to shut-ins or to those with health concerns. Some churches also send birthday and anniversary cards. Reach out to local churches and ask if they’d like cards and envelopes donated.
  • Civic, church and school organizations: Need a fundraiser? Package cards 3-4 in a pack with envelopes and groups can sell card packs as a fundraiser (birthday pack, thank you pack, thinking of you pack). Pricing can vary depending on the purpose and area and complexity of cards, but a good starting point is $10-12 for 3 cards. Click HERE or HERE for some quick & easy ideas to create a set of cards!
  • Thank You cards for first responders, military, veterans, teachers and civic workers: Write a note and drop a card in the mail to people who serve in your community. Everyone loves to be appreciated.
  • Card for the Troops: There isn’t often a greeting card store available for military members serving overseas. Look up an organization in your area that specializes in sending boxes of greeting cards to bases overseas for soldiers to use in sending messages back home.

Have a great day! I hope you find time to share your creativity!
Stay safe! Stay well!
