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!

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.

A New Look for the Wood Crate Framelits

I bet I’m not the only one who shops and sees color in Stampin’ Up! names! (My daughter bought a lovely Crushed Curry top! LOL)  I keep my color swatch book in my purse so I have it when I’m out shopping. (I also have one that I keep in my craft room.) You never know where you’ll find inspiration! Today I have a new look for the Wood Crate Framelits and a peek at some of the new Designer Series Papers.

Stampin Up 2019 -2021 In Colors and Yankee Candle votives - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Yesterday was my first venture out since I had surgery on my arm. My daughter drove me around to run a few errands. I felt like I hit the jackpot at the Yankee Candle store…votive candles were 1/2 price!  I pulled out my swatch book and found colors to match our new In Colors!  I was like a kid in a candy store.  I couldn’t wait to get home and create!

I love all 4 of the new patterns in the 2019-2021 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (though I will miss the polka dots!).  I cut 2 pieces of each using the Wood Crate Framelits.  The crates are so quick & easy to put together as it cuts and scores at the same time.  Just add adhesive to the flaps and bottom of one and adhere the two pieces together.  The new Scalloped Linen Ribbon (available June 4th) added a nice touch with a simple knot for a bow. Look at this beautiful ribbon!

These candle crates are perfect little thank you gifts for hostesses, teachers, hairdressers (or friends who spoil you with gifts and food following surgery). What a great idea for craft fairs! Here’s a close up of each of the crates with the new In Color Designer Series Paper patterns. (These same patterns will be available in 6 x 6 paper packs for each color family.)

Hmmm….I think I like it better with the matching candles.  What about you?

So, are you convinced you need this die before it retires (or sells out)? Yesterday I shared some other ideas using the Wood Crate Framelits. If you missed that post, you can view it HERE.

HOME for all Seasons…A Kit To Go!

I had the most wonderful long weekend! It was like a mini vacation! I hosted a three day stamping retreat at my home for some of my stamping friends! We had so much fun creating, sharing ideas, chatting and laughing up a storm!  I didn’t want the weekend to end! We didn’t even have to cook as my husband pampered us all weekend long with breakfast, lunch, and dinner!! I wish  I had taken lots of photos to share with you but we were having so much fun creating we didn’t even stop to take but a few pictures. However, I do have a fun 3D home decor project we made that I am offering as a Kit To Go!

I gifted everyone with a 5 x 7 photo frame and the supplies to make this interchangeable project.
