The fold Christmas tree was made with a half circle of Old Olive Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper.   I created the envelope with the Real Red paper from the same pack.  A perfect Christmas combination.

The Christmas star from Scentsational Season stamp set  was stamped in Daffodil Delight  and trimmed out with the coordinating Holiday Collection framelit.  I punched the tree trunk out with the corner of a square punch.

I stamped the greeting  from Joyous Celebrations stamp set in Real Red and punched it out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch.  I then trimmed the tree and the star with Dazzling Details glitter glue.

Sweet Baby

Its a wrap occasions baby gift card

The It’s a Wrap Occasions stamp set is perfect for stamping labels to wrap around candy treats.  That’s where the name comes from, but like how cute it is as a card!  If you look up the stamp set on page 47 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog you’ll notice that this card looks similar to the cute treat bag pictured there.

Crumb Cake cardstock makes a great base and allows the other elements to really take center stage.  I used the Wild Wasabi and Night of Navy markers to color the stamp so I could create the two tone effect.  I stamped it again in Wild Wasabi to trim out ‘sweet baby’ and pop it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I tied a linen thread bow in the button and used a glue dot to glue it down.  The Bashful Blue banner behind was clipped with the corner of a square punch to create the flag ends.

Great Thanksgiving Feast Setting

Thanksgiving table setting
This great thanksgiving setting is from Stampin’ Up!  Sara Brook from the  Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio Team said, “Inspired by the fall season and the growing fashion trend of geometrics — the Unknown Blessings Ensemble for Thanksgiving is fabulously fresh! I have put together a faux place setting using the Unknown Blessings Ensemble.”

Sara goes on to explain how she did it.  “The feather headband can be assembled quickly by using the feather punches (digital punch included in download). Simply snip out the feather punches, fold in half, and cut freehand notches to create a feather effect.

“The headband is made from the Designer Series Papers, which can also be used as placemats at their full size. Cut the size (for the band) that you want from any of the patterns and then double or triple-up the band to fit the circumference of the person’s head. Attach the chosen headband pieces together, as well as the feathers to the back of the band; then wear and enjoy!

Sara continues, “The napkin rings are made the same way as the feather headbands, just with smaller stackable feathers and a smaller band. The smaller feathers can also be used as fun table confetti!

“The colorful pie box makes for a killer gifting and presentation piece. After the templates have been printed, cut out and score along the folding edges, fold the sides, attach the flap pieces on the inside of the box with an adhesive, line the box with wax paper, and then insert the treat.

“You will for sure be a fashionable Pocahontas this Thanksgiving with this fresh take on traditional festivities.”

unknown blessings thanksgiving ensemble The Unknown Blessings Thanksgiving digital download includes: 7  1-page décor designer templates: invitation, place cards, pie box, napkin rings, menu cards, framable décor, feathers (8-1/2″ x 11″); double-sided postcard designer template (9 x 4-1/4″); 17-piece SVG stamp brush set; 6 Designer Series Papers; 8 embellishments and 1 punch.
