Hello there crafters.  Do you find your, in the last few days to Christmas, needing a little stocking stuffer or gift for a teacher, neighbor, or coworker?  Wrap up your Chapstick's in this cute, little holder to make them festive. Using larger scrap pieces of Designer Series Paper is a fun and easy way to dress these up for gift giving.

Curvy Christmas

Need a few last minute Christmas cards?  This was comes together super quick and I bet you could make about ten or so in a half hour.  Just use my dimensions. 

Time saving tip... cut everything in batches and cut two pieces of cardstock or designer series paper at a time.  Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer can definitely do that. 

I design my card, deciding exactly how I want it to look then cut all my card bases.  Next I will cut all the background paper or designer series paper (DSP), then any other little bits.  I put everything in stacks and work each stack, one at a time.  This way I am doing all my embossing at once, then all my die cutting at once, and stamping.  Make an assembly line.  It will make things move quicker.

Card Details:

  • Card base is Thick Whisper White card stock cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
    • remember to score the Thick White at 4-1/4" before folding in half
  • DSP cut 3-1/2" x 5-1/4" and adhere to card base
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-1/2 x 5-1/4" then die cut with Curvy Die
  • Stamp lines of stars in Crushed Curry and words in Cherry Cobbler on above piece then adhere
  • Wrap a piece of ribbon around front flap, add a bow and your down

Easy Peasy!  

Don't forget about the Year-End Closeout Sale happening now until January 4, 2021.

Blue Shimmery Poinsettia

I don't know about you, but I cannot get enough of the Poinsettia Petals Bundle or the entire product suite called Poinsettia Place.  When you want to make the traditional red flowers or go with another color, I do not think it will look bad.  

I also love mixing up product suite items and making my own combinations.  In my Blue Shimmery Poinsettia card, I did just that.  I combined the Poinsettia Petals bundle with items from the Snowflake Splendor Suite collection.  Let's take a look...

PicsArt_11-29-12.34.00

Again, using the Poinsettia Petals bundle for the flower and sprigs, the Designer Series Paper, blue gems, ribbon and Balmy Blue  Glimmer paper are all from the Snowflake Splendor product suite.

The Creative Fold idea on this one did come from Linda Bauwin over at Stamping with Linda.  She is my fabulous upline who has been a Demonstrator for over 23 years.  She is awesome!

Card Details:

  • 3 pieces of Balmy Blue Card Stock: 
      • 2 x 4"
      • 4-1/4 x 5-1/2"
      • 2-5/8 x 3-7/8"
  • 2 pieces of Whisper White Card Stock
      • 4 x 8"
      • 4-1/2 x 5-1/2"
  • 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper
      • 1-7/8 x 3-3/8"
      • 2-1/2 x 3-3/4"
  • Blue Glimmer Paper 4 x 5"
  • a Beaded Pearl and some Blue Adhesive Backed Gems
  1. score the Balmy Blue CS 2 x 4" piece at 1/2" on long side
  2. adhere DSP 1-7/8 x 3-3/8" piece to above Balmy Blue
  3. take the 4 x 8" Whisper White CS and score at 5-1/4 on the 8" side.  This will form your card base
  4. take the 2 x 4" Balmy Blue piece and adhere the 1/2" scored parts to back side of Whisper White from step 3.  This will create your flap.  Make sure your DSP is facing forward.
  5. adhere the 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 Balmy Blue CS to the 4 x 8 Whisper White.  Fold & just hold the smaller flap of the Whisper White so you can center over the Balmy Blue card stock. 
  6. adhere the 2-1/2 x 3-3/4" piece of DSP on the Whisper White flap so when flap closed, you will see the DSP
  7. stamp 3 sizes of poinsettias in Night of Navy in on the 4-1/2 x 5-1/2" Whisper White.  Die cut them out
  8. Die cut 5 sprigs out of the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper

-  To add extra sparkle to my poinsettia flower, I put some rubbing alcohol and several drops of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint into a Spritzer.  Shake the spritzer to mix the alcohol and paint.  Heavily spritz all the petals.  While still damp, I pinched all the petals on the petals center line.  You can really scrunch them up, just depends on what you like.

-  I then used my Heat Tool to help dry them quickly.  Adhere all the petals together with Dimensionals or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Add a Beaded Pearl to the center. 

-  Before adhering to our card, add the Balmy Blue Glimmer Springs to the back and a couple of pieces of Snowflake Splendor Ribbon to finish it all off.

****When adhering your poinsettia to your card,  make sure you use Dimensionals and on the left side of your flower.  Your flap needs to tuck under the right side of your flower to hold your card closed. 

Lastly, don't forget about the Blue Adhesive backed Gems!

SAVI Sunday 41 - Candle Gift Holder

Welcome to my SAVI Sunday - Episode 41:  Candle Gift Holder

Here is a unique gift holder for the holidays, or any occasion.  Lots of my friends and family love candles and what a great little gift or stocking stuffer.  This one here is going to co-workers and features a candle from a local store from here in North East Ohio, Root Candles.  You should check them out.  If you live local, their store is a must see!

PicsArt_12-06-08.58.13

Here is what you need to create this gift box:

  • 2 pieces of Merry Merlot cardstock cut to 7-1/2 x 11"
  • score both pieces of cardstock the same:
    • on 11" side, score at:  3", 6-1/2", and 8-1/4 (then quarter turn counter clockwise)
    • on 7-1/2" side, score at:  3-1/2" and 7"
  • fold paper back on top score line and make tiny score marks along the fold
  • tiny score marks are at 1-3/8", 2-1/8", 4-7/8" and 5-5/8"
  • we will need 4 pieces of Designer Series Paper each 3-1/4" x 3-1/4".  I used Plush Poinsettia Plush Paper to decorate outside of box
  • Tag:  Whisper White cardstock 1" x 2-3/4
  • Tag:  Merry Merlot cardstock 1-1/4" x 3"

Now you have to watch my VIDEO to see the rest of the scoring and cutting instructions. 

 



I have to give credit to blogger Darby over at "Rejoice and Create" for this fabulous idea.  I just loved, what she calls a flare top gift box, that I wanted to try for myself.  Darby have a diagram of the cut and score instructions too.
