When I finished the Glittery Paper Christmas Tree Card I had these scraps left over to make this little gift card that measures 3″ square.  All I had to make was the Gumball Green 3″ square card base and adhere the pieces.  The tree was cut out from the tree ‘window’ I created for the Christmas tree card with the paper I embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and then heat embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder.  So it’s shimmery!

I took a square of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper and created a matching square envelope with my Diagonal Scoring Plate.  With that scoring tool it literally takes seconds to make a matching envelope.

And the cool thing is the stripes of that paper are on a diagonal so when I folded up the envelope the stripes were straight across and created a great place to add the recipient’s name.  I used the card yesterday when I delivered some Stampin’ Up! product to a friend.

Glittery Paper Christmas Tree Card

Holiday Collection Christmas Tree Card

I’m always experimenting so I can bring you more ideas to spark your creativity.  This was fun to make with designer paper, framelit dies, an embossing folder and iridescent ice embossing powder.  As soon as I saw this green polka dot paper in the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper pack, I knew is was perfect for a Christmas tree. I wanted to do something more interesting than simply die-cutting the shape from the paper so I used it to show case the die-cut Christmas Tree through the coordinating paper.

I started with Very Vanilla cardstock cut 4-1/4″ x 11″, then layered green polka dot paper over that measuring 4″ x 10-3/4″.  When I adhered the pattern paper I only glued down to the top of the Very Vanilla on the front and the back.  I wanted the layers to be separate so they would really stand out.  Here’s some pictures so you can see the layers better.

I ran a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of the red and green snowflake paper through the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine in the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing folder.  Then I ran it through again with the Christmas tree framelet die from the Holiday Collection dies.  Finally I brayered Versamark lighly over the paper and add Iridescent Ice embossing powder to the raised pattern for a glittery effect.  Then I adhered this piece to the front at the top.  Can you see the texture and the glimmer of the embossing in this photo?

Finally, I added the Red Glimmer Paper star, also cut out from the Holiday Collection framelit dies, and tied the baker twine around the top.

I could not resist combining these Christmas stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog into one Merry Christmas card.  This little gingerbread man from the Scentsational Season stamp set fits perfectly in the Perfectly Preserved mason jar.

I stamped the gingerbread man in Early Espresso on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the mason jar Cannery Set Framelit Die.  His cute little bow tie is from the Joyous Celebrations stamp set with a little detail added with a black Stampin’ Write marker.  Then I stamped the jar with Black StazOn ink on a window sheet and layered that over the ‘gingerbread man’ jar.

The Old Olive lid was die cut out of the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper with a baker’s twine tie.   The Top Note Die background is in Real Red cardstock with a layer of Real Red pattern paper from the same dsp paper pack.  Merry Christmas banner is from Owl Occasions stamp set.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with lots of food, family and friends.  We enjoyed our weekend very much, catching up with family, playing games, going to a couple of shows and watching some football.

Enjoy!  Julie

World Treasures Personalized Stationary

World Treasures stationary kit close up

Inspired by the sample on page 147 of the catalog and the birthday gifts my sister made for her friends,  this personalized stationary kit is fabulous.  I chose the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper as a jumping off point.  The paper dictated the colors I used: Pacific Point and More Mustard.  It’s a vibrant palette, don’t you think?

(Scroll to the bottom of the post for the complete supply list linked to the product picture and description.)

World Treasures stationary kit peacock

I stamped the peacock from the Stampin’ Up! World Treasures stamp set in Pacific Point and colored in some feathers with my Many Marvelous Markers.  Now here’s the fun part, which is really hard to detect in the photos.  After cropping the peacock out with the Labels Collection Framelit, I covered the stamped and colored label with Shimmer Paint using a sponge daubers.   It gives it such soft, classy sparkle.

I stamped the peacock again, cut out the body and adhered that with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I adhered the peacock lable to a larger label cut from Pacific Point cardstock.  Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating papers and inks makes crafting so satisfying – you always get great results because it matches!

World Treasures stationary kit personalized

The interior has a pocket for holding stationary and envelopes.  I used the Scallop Border Ribbon Punch to finish off the edge of my pocket.  You’ll notice that I didn’t plan ahead correctly and I cut my paper so that my design is sideways.  Don’t make the same mistake I did – double check your design orientation before you cut!  What’s the saying?  “Measure twice, cut once.”  I should have checked twice and then cut.

World Treasures stationary kit

Above is a close up of the stationary.  I used creamy, lightweight paper cut in half  and stamped in Pacific Point with a Monogram Stamp to create the stationary.  The matching envelopes are Very Vanilla envelopes stamped with the flower from the same World Treasures stamp set as the peacock.

Below is a picture of the back, layered with the matching More Mustard cardstock.  The cardstock layer adds sturdiness and also covers the end of the Victorian Crochet Lace ties.

These stationary sets are great gifts for friends for birthdays or Christmas.  Include a Personalized stamp with the matching stamp pad and it’s a gift they will enjoy for a very long time.

DON’T FORGET TO LEAVE A COMMENTSAY HELLO and let me know what you think.  🙂

Enjoy!  Julie
