Christmas Gift Bags using Stampin' Up!

My gosh hasn't this week gone fast it's Friday already!! I'm busy getting everything ready for a Christmas Tags and Bags Class using Stampin' Up! Oh What Fun Tag Kit and stamp set. It's such a great Kit with 30 tags to make. We're going to use same as tags and some as fronts for cards. We're also going to be making some gift bags and that's what I've made below, isn't it cute.


I made this bag using the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags there 10 bags for £3.25 and they are so versatile. I've heat embossed this one with Gold embossing powder and one of the little stamps from the stamp set Oh' What Fun which co-ordinates with the tag kit.

I've also made the tag on the front of the bag with the same stamp set and I have placed it on a Glimmer Paper Scalloped Circle. 

Lastly for a little extra bling I have heat embossed the little clothespins with the same Gold embossing powder too. Being careful not to burn my fingers !!! 

I love the way the bag turned out, heat embossing is so much fun and you get such a great results. It's turned this bag into something really special, and at a fraction of the cost of one you would buy in the shops..

Great Baby Card using Stampin' Up! products

When I saw the new Hearth & Home Framelits from Stampin' Up! I just had to have them, There so cute! I took it straight out the packet and had to make something with it, what do you think? I love the way this baby card turned out!!

 
I used the super cute Something for Baby stamp set to stamp a pram on some Whisper White paper.  I then made a sun by cutting out a small circle in some post-it-notes, and using a Sponge Dauber and some Daffodil Delight I shaded in the space left. I then used the circle to cover the sun and shaded in the sky using Soft Sky which is a lovely pale blue. This made the area in the background round the pram look like a sunny day. The little cat is from the great stamp set Made with Love and is stamped in Crumb Cake. 

The Whisper White paper was then popped behind the window, which I cut out using the fabulous  Hearth & Home Framelits, I stuck the cat down in front of the window he looks like his waiting to go out.

Lastly I used the word Congrats from the lovely Expressions Natural Elements and a candy dot for the handle of the window and I was all done.

I think the word Congrats finishes the card off with a wow factor.


I hope you like today's card I'm off to play with the Framelits some more. I hope you have a lovely day. If you would like to buy anything from me you will find all the products I used below in the table.

Christmas Card Class with Peaceful Pines Stamp set by Stampin' Up

This week has been super busy with two lovely card classes. The first class on Tuesday was with the super cute Peaceful Pines Stamp set and Framelits by Stampin' Up. It's such a lovely stamp set with 17 great stamps including little baubles and even a little stamp of a present, they have thought of everything. 


We made 3 super cute cards with the Bundle the first one was in Blackberry Bliss and had a silver background, the base of the card was in black. I also used the lovely new Christmas Greetings Thinlits to cut out the word Merry in silver with I think makes the card look fab.

This was the second card and I used some of the super Red Foil Sheets to make a large circle behind the Christmas Tree, can you see the little baubles aren't they cute, I couldn't resist using some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on top of the baubles to give them some extra sparkle. Have you seen the snowflake on top of the tree!! It comes from the Snowflake Elements one of Stampin' Up! super little embellishments.


This is the last card we made and I loved the way it turned out. I love a bit of sparkle so I popped some Dazzling Diamond Glitter Paper on the bottom of the card and these super cute little Reindeer Paper Clips at the top I think they just make the card that bit extra special.

I hope you enjoyed seeing all the cards we made at my class if you would like to make any of the cards I have popped a list of all the supplies at the bottom of this blog.

Super Quick treat box using Stampin' Up! products

Oh my gosh what a mad week I've had! It was my birthday on Thursday and I went out for a lovely day with daughter, so I'm a little late in sharing this post with you of these really sweet little treat boxes made with the super cute stamp set A Little Something from Stampin' Up!


I made these boxes using the Simple Scored Board. They are so easy to make you just cut a small piece of paper 6" x 6" and score on one side at 1" 2.5" 3.5" and 5" then you turn round the paper and score at 1" and 5". Once you have done that you burnish the creases with a bone folder.  You then cut at each end on the 1" 2.5' 3.5" and 5" line up to the 1" line no further. This will make the openings at each end. Seal one of the ends pop in your sweets or small treat and then you seal the other end and your all finished.

I made a really sweet topper using the 1 1/4 scalloped circle, 1 1/2 circle and the 1 3/8 circle. I stamped the topper using the A Little Something stamp set. I coloured the stamp in using some Stampin' write makers. These are great when you want to colour in different sections of the stamp different colours, as you can make the words and the pictures on the same stamp different colours. I coloured the acorns in Garden Green and Cajun Craze and the sentiment in Old Olive. You just colour the stamp in, then breath on the stamp with a huff of breath (a technical term ) :0) and your all done.

If you'd like to make this super quick project all the item I've used are available in my online shop you  just click on the item below and the link will take you straight there.   I hope you have a great weekend and come back soon for some more lovely ideas using Stampin' Up goodies.

Christmas Card Using To You & Yours Too Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

It's really cold outside today and with Christmas fast approaching I wanted to get started on some Christmas cards so I reached for the lovely To You & Yours Too Stamp set. I already had this in my crafty stash as I used it a couple of weeks ago to make the super cute To You & Yours Shaker Cards Project Kit, which is such a fun kit to make, anyway on with today's card.

I made the card using Night of Navy which is a card stock colour I love, I use this colour so much as it's great for men's cards. I layered Night of Navy as the base then some some Fancy Foil Designer Vellum which is so cute and you only need a small amount. You get 9 12" x 12" sheets of the Vellum embossed in either silver or gold in 3 different designs either stripped, hearts or spots. For this card I used the strips as you can see.

I then stamp on to the Night of Navy using some silver ink, and added the Silver Satin Ribbon which is super soft, and give the cards such a lush feel. I'm not very good at bows but I think it looks lovely.


I had a couple of pieces of card stock on my desk so while the stamp set was all inky I made a quick couple of Christmas present tags using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and a couple of  sequins for a bit of bling. 

If you'd like to make this super quick card all the item I've used are available in my online shop you  just click on the item below and the link will take you straight there.   I hope you have a great day and come back soon for some more lovely ideas using Stampin' Up goodies.

Remember to add the Hostess code no P9CV7MCY before you check out to receive this months gift also please tick the "I would like contact" so I know where to send your card and gift out to.

Super Friday Deals you can't miss out on with Stampin' Up!

Oh my gosh what a week for special offers with Stampin' Up! not only did we have a new set of Weekly Deals on Wednesday which as usual are lovely, but we also have some great Christmas Goodies still on the Clearance Rack at super low prices so it's an ideal time to stock up on such things as tags, ribbon and stamp sets for the holiday season.



Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog




I LOVE the fact that Stampin' Up! not only offer great value for money with their paper, ink, stamp sets and co-ordinating punches but they also think of our purses and every week pick some special items and offer them with that little extra off.
 
That's why I love working for them and buying from them because I know they try their very best to bring us great deals to help us with our crafting budget.

One of the other ways they help is to give hostess rewards on any spend/purchases over £150 by giving you an extra 10% to spend on great goods be it hostess stamp sets at the back of the catalogue or on other products throughout the catalogue. The percentage goes up the higher your spend, and from today - drum roll......9th October till 9th November they are giving everyone that spends  £200 an extra 3% on top of the 10% to make it 13% hostess rewards. That means you would get £26 instead of £20 to spend on anything you like. If you were to spend £275 you would receive 15% and £41.25 wow wow wow. I have included a chart to show you the great offer. 

As you can see it's a great time if you haven't already to get all those Christmas creative goodies for your card making; gift bag making; present wrapping or even table decorations sorted. Why not get some presents sorted for the family or friends and a little something for yourself with all these great rewards.

Have a great weekend and check back next week for some great new craft ideas.

All boxed Up Kit by Stampin' Up!

Hi I hope your having a lovely day. I wanted to bring you a super little kit from Stampin' Up! today, It makes 10 little boxes 10.2 x 6.7 x 6.7cm. and they are adorable and so easy to make.

 
 
The kit includes all the cardstock, circle tags, printed banners, gold foil stickers, bakers twine, cute pompom trim in a lovely pool party and super cute clothespins in watermelon wonder and island indigo. The boxes are die cut and all ready to put together, you don't even need glue as the boxes come with adhesive tabs. This kit coordinates with the All Boxed up Stamp Set and you would need some ink also to complete the kit I recommend Island Indigo and Watermelon Wonder ink pads.

 
These cute little boxes are ideal for little children's party treats or a little thank you gift. The kit is suitable for adults or children.



This is the video of the kit so you can see how lovely it is.




I have added the kit at the bottom of my blog, I also have a new October Hostess Code Club Number which is P9CV7MCY  This is the code you put in, in the section when it asks you if you have a Hostess code to add. This code is added when your order comes to less than £150. All order less than this amount get added up during the month and then I share all the rewards with everyone that has purchased goods during the month. If the spend is over £150 all the hostess rewards go directly to you and can be used on whatever products or hostess stamp set you wish.

Have a lovely day
