Christmas Coffee Cup Carrier

After attending a Stampin Up workshop from another demonstrator, I became obsessed with all the cute stuff to make with these adorable 4 ounce coffee cups that I had to order my own. I only ordered 50 which at the time seemed like too many but I am using the heck out of them for Halloween, Christmas and other gift giving occasions.  Today is the Christmas Coffee Cup Carrier  featuring the Christmas Around the World DSP $ 144629 from Stampin Up.  To get the patterned paper to fit on the cup, I cut apart the cup at the seam and traced a pattern out on to cardstock to make a permanent template.

Cup of Holiday Cheer

2017_11_29IMG_2834 I love everything about today’s Christmas card post featuring the Merry Music DSP #144623 from Stampin Up.  The card layout is a gatefold style card and the top focal piece also flips open for double the fun. The coffee cup is cut using a coordinating piece of the Merry Music DSP using the very popular Coffee Cups Framelits #143745.  The sentiment is stamped onto the coffee sleeve using the Merry Cafe stamp set.  I added a piece of the 1/8 ” real red solid ribbon to complete this card.

Holiday ball

2017_11_28IMG_2698 I made this  super delicate glass ornament for my Christmas in July workshop but held off posting until closer to Christmas.  I used a glass ornament and cut snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers #143751 Thinlits.  Before Cutting the snowflakes I adhered a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive sheets #144106 to the  the wrong side of the Color Theory DSP #144193 and then cut the snowflakes.  Once cut I simply pulled of the backing to create a sticker and applied directly onto the clean and dry glass ornament.  I added rhinestones to the center of each snowflake and for more sparkle, I added some Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds glitter #133751 and a piece of white satin ribbon to hang this beauty.

2017_11_25IMG_2682 Today’s post is the Christmas post since it is the 25th of the month and will kick of a series of Christmas cards thru the end of Nov and into December.  This card starts out with the Color Theory DSP # 144193 and I stamped the snowflakes from the Colorful Seasons # 143726 Stampin Up stamp set.  I also cut snowflakes from the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751.  The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of Color Theory DSP using the Half Full stamp set.

Box in a card

2017_11_23IMG_2831 These cards have been so popular lately that I decided to take a stab at making one of my own.  I used these for table decorations on thanksgiving.  I filled a clear tiny treat box #141699 from Stampin Up with  a harvest mix and it fit perfectly in the slot cut from the card.  The DSP is from the Painted Autumn Collection #144613 and the sentiment from a retired stamp set.

Let’s Talk Turkey

2017_11_23 Sometimes it’s the little things that make me happy.  I made these cute turkey dippers using the pretzel dippers I found at the Dollar Tree and I dressed them up by adding a square folded along the diagonal for the beak, a hand cut gobbler, 1/4 in strip for legs and 1/2 little Boho flower for feet and google eyes.  I used scraps and the Leaflets Framelits #138283  for the feathers.

Happy Thanksgiving one and all

Gather Together

2017_11_22IMG_2637 Today’s post is simply stunning because the paper from the Stampin Up Painted Autumn DSP #144613 is absolutely Painted Harvest #144783 stamp set.  I added a bundle of leaves stamped with the Painted Harvest stamp set and then punched out with the Leaf Punch #144667.tha

I loved the DSP so much that I used it for dressing up a plain brown paper sack that I used for treat bags at my fall workshops. 2017_11_24IMG_2565

Kindness Matters

2017_11_21IMG_2645 For today’s card, I wanted to showcase the beauty of the Painted Autumn DSP #144613 from Stampin Up, so I decided to keep the card simple. I added the sentiment from the Painted Harvest #144783 stamp set onto a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372. I added the punched leaves from the Leaves punch #144667 behind the sentiment and a little linen bow.

The Painted Autumn papers include sunflowers, pumpkins, acorns, and much more painted in a beautiful retro style, echoing motifs from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. With this Designer Series Paper, you’d wish autumn would stay forever!
