Gifts From The Sea with DSP

I love to give homemade gifts. Creating something special for someone is a gift from the heart!  I love the ocean and have always enjoyed combing the beach for sea glass and shells. My sister and I made some gifts from shells we picked along the shore.

I had so much fun trying different patterned paper and napkins. The great part about using your DSP is you can create a matching card, gift, and/or box.

Stampin’ Up! offers fun and FUNctional packaging, so you can wrap it up in style! I used a clear acetate card box (#144628) to gift the sailboat shell. I wrapped it in tissue paper and placed the coordinating card in the front of the box for a quick birthday gift. This simple card design can be used with any DSP. I used denim ribbon and the Smooth Sailing Dies to tie it all together.

The Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes (#153069) are the perfect size for large shells. I decorated the top of the box in matching DSP. I stamped (and punched) the sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells to put inside the box. It’s the perfect saying to go with these shells when gifting to a friend!

I have several of these shells throughout my home. They have so many uses! You can put them by the sink in the kitchen or bath, or in the bedroom to hold rings/jewelry/trinkets. You can keep one by the stove for a spoon rest and/or teabag holder. They also make a great decor piece on a coffee table, end table, etc.

I used some paper napkins to make table favors to coordinate with my place settings!

You can put some after dinner mints in the shells and wrap them in the printed gusseted cellophane bags (#151312) for your guests to take home or give as a hostess gift.

The best thing about this project is my sister and I enjoyed the oysters, clams, and stuffed quahogs for dinner before using the shells to create gifts for friends & family. How great is that?!!!

So what do you think of this project idea? I bet you can think of even more uses for these shells.  I’d love to hear your ideas! Leave a comment below.

Just Saying Hello with Flowering Fields

Happy New Year!!! I am really looking forward to a new year and a new start! The past 6 months have been a whirlwind and some stamping therapy is definitely in order! Here is a quick & easy card design that you can use anytime using patterned paper….

This versatile sentiment is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. I made a bunch of these cards to have on hand. I love the new Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper in the January – June Mini Catalog (page 15) that debuted this week.
Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used the front and back of 3 different patterns on today’s cards.  I stamped the sentiment on the muted side which coordinates with the beautiful floral prints. These cards were inspired by the card sketch below that my friend, Karen Hallam, shared.

Whenever I have a creative block I try using a card sketch and usually once I start creating the ideas begin to flow seeing the different possibilities. Here’s a look at each.

Paper Pumpkin Giveaway Winner….

I loved reading everyone’s comments how they share their cards! You are such a source of inspiration! Thank you for sharing your kindness!  The winner of the Paper Pumpkin kit is…..Susan Itell! Here’s how Susan shares her cards.

I absolutely love to make cards in the masses and it brings me so much joy to make a big stack of cards and just sit down and send them out to make somebody’s day… (Hopefully they like it!!)

I also love to make random cards and just drop them off randomly to people that work in a rehab facility….. to people who work in a physical therapy facility …..to people that work in the hospital… That brings me a bunch of joy!

The other thing that I love to do is when I have to send a check to someone that has done work at our house I’d like to make them a special card and take time to put something very personable and also very uplifting… As we all know we need to keep sharing kindness!”

Many thanks to all who took the time to comment! And special thanks to Sister Corda’s great niece, Liz Hott, for donating a Paper Pumpkin kit in her aunt’s memory.
