Q is for Quick Gift Ideas

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today is all about Quick & easy gift giving!

Stampin’ Up! offers several products to make gift giving Quick & easy. If you are anything like me there are times when you need a last minute gift.  I keep some of my favorite quick & easy gift making products on hand so I am always ready.  Two of my favorite products for quick holiday gifts are the copper tins and the mini gold pizza boxes (these come in white also).

Stampin' Up! Brightly Gleaming Copper Tin and Perfectly Plaid Pizza Box Gift Ideas for Christmas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Both of these products are food safe which make them great for homemade goodies. You can also fit 3 x 3 note cards inside which can be used for gift enclosures or tags. What a great holiday helper gift idea for a busy coworker, friend, or hairdresser!

The Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper has gold foil accents on classic Christmas plaid designs which look great with the gold box. I punched the tree from a 3 1/4″ square of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Pine Tree Punch. I adhered it to to a piece of 3 x 3 DSP and then to top of the box. I stamped the tree image from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and adhered it to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Shaded Spruce ribbon with gold stripe is the perfect accent. It’s quick & easy to just wrap around the box and tie a bow.

My husband makes delicious fudge every year for the holidays and the mini pizza boxes are great for gifting individual sweet treats.  I plan to give this to my daughter’s former violin teacher.  She loves my husband’s fudge and we bring her some every year. Her husband passed away a few years ago and she enjoys it when Ariane visits her when she’s home for the holidays.  This gift box coordinates with the card I shared the other day which makes a nice gift presentation. (*You can click HERE for the directions to make the card if you missed that post.)

My second quick & easy gift uses the Copper Tins. I used these copper tins last year to hold my homemade cinnamon candy I make for my family and friends. The tins were a big hit last year so I thought I would update the look with the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. This DSP has copper accents which coordinate well with the tins.

I cut the DSP at 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 and adhered it to a 3 x 3 piece of copper foil and attached it to the tin. I punched the ornaments using the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack and adhered them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Delicata Celestial Copper Ink. If you would like to see the copper tins (and some other gift ideas) I made last year click HERE.

P is for Perfectly Plaid and Pine Tree Punch

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’ve been making a lot of 3D projects lately so I decided to share a quick & easy card today using the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, Pine Tree Punch, and Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper. (Now that’s a lot of P’s!!!)

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’ll get right to the details:

Measurements

  • Shaded Spruce card base:  5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Mint Macaron cardstock: 3″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White: 2 1/2″ x 4″ to stamp 2 trees, 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside card
  • Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 DSP: 3″ x 5 1/2″, 3 x 6 for envelope flap
  • Gold Foil: 2 pieces at 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scraps to cut 3 stars

Directions

  • Punch 3 trees from the Mint Macaron cardstock with the Pine Tree Punch.
  • Adhere the Mint Macaron to the DSP.
  • Adhere the Gold Foil strips to the top and bottom of the Mint Macaron.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink along the bottom of the card base and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder. *I masked the top part of the sentiment.
  • Adhere the mint macaron layered piece to the card base.
  • Stamp the two trees in Shaded Spruce Ink. Stamp the leaves on top in Mint Macaron ink. Punch both trees out with the Pine Tree Punch and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut 3 stars from Gold Foil using Stitched Stars Dies. Adhere to top of trees with Liquid Glue.
  • Add Red Rhinestone Jewels to stamped trees.

  • Punch the envelope flap of a Gold Foil-Edged Envelope with the Pine Tree Punch.
  • Adhere the 3 x 6 DSP inside the envelope flap so the plaid pattern is showing through the punched tree.

I’d like to give a shout out to Linda Heller (stampingschool.com) for this card design.  I saved it back in 2014 and can’t believe it has taken me this long to CASE it! I really like how it turned out and love that it was so quick & easy!

Here’s a look at the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and Pine Tree Punch which I used to make this card. (*You can purchase these as a bundle and save 10%.)
