Harvest Place Setting

I used to love making table favors and place settings cards for holiday meals.  Now we tend to not get together with as many people at one time, so I haven’t made these in a while.  Today I am bringing them back and with a bit of a twist.

 

Stampin' Up!, Country Home, Gilded Autumn, Brushed Foil, Jackie Beers

This project is a combination of place setting and utensil holder.  I did not add a name, but I would place a smaller layer in the center of the DSP with the person’s name.  And before I get started on these particulars, I want to say that I have found a Wonderful Thing!!!!  The sentiment is stamped with the Cinnamon Cider Ink.  To me anyway, it looks like it is stamped in a metallic ink.  I have used this ink with Bronze and Gold and it matches perfectly. I think that is a great find!  Be sure to try it yourself.

Ok, now on to the directions.  The holder is actually the same size as a pull out card that I have made.  And if you were purchasing the utensil holders, they are a tad narrower.  But I like having the extra bit of room because the card stock doesn’t flex as well as some of the fabric holders do.

The sweet sentiment is from the Country Home stamp set.  I love every stamp in this set.  The base of the project is Mint Macaron and cut to 4 1/4 X 11 and is scored at 5 1/2 and 10.  Fold and burnish both folds.  The small 1″ fold, folds to the outside and I have it taped down.  On the long end, I rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.

The layers are Brushed Metallic card stock (OMG this paper is beautiful!!!) and the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper.  I stamped on Very Vanilla with the Cinnamon Cider Ink and punched the ends with the Lovely Label Punch.

I had purchased some beautiful napkins last year after Thanksgiving for just such a project.  And I have No Idea where they are!!!  So I used a piece of old DSP, which is actually similar to the napkins, to represent the napkin.  Also, by having a bit more room inside the fold, I have room for a little treat.  I added a Merci Chocolate in the center.  The pretty foil wrapping on those matches the theme as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog hop.  I have directions for today’s project just below.  And the supplies are listed at the very bottom of the  post.

Directions:

  • base is 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 5 1/2 and 10.  Fold and burnish the scored lines.
  • Fold the small section to the front and secure with tape or glue.
  • The sentiment layer is 3 3/4 X 3/4 for the foil and 3 3/4 X 5/8 for the Vanilla
  • Use the Lovely Label punch to punch each end of the sentiment.
  • The front layers are 4 X 3 3/4 and 3 3/4 X 3 1/2
  • Place the layers on the front and the sentiment.
  • Add Tear & Tape to the inside edge of the front section.  Place the tape against the edge of the paper.
  • Lay your silverware inside the pocket and then adhere the sides.  Otherwise it is extremely tight and everything will not fit inside.

Quick Gift Card Holder

If you follow my posts, you know I love gift card holders. I have a pretty but different one to share today.  And it is not a card.  However, you could take the properties and make a really cute card.

 

Stampin' Up!, gift card, Heartwarming Hugs, Gift Wrapped, Ornate Frames, Triple Banner, Jackie Beers

 

This adorable tin is on page 55 of the upcoming August – December Mini Catalog.   It is a perfect size of not too large and not too small.  It holds a Gift Card perfectly.  Plus, you have a little room to add some extra surprises.  It measures 4″ x 2 3/4″ x 1″.  And it is food safe as well.  They come very well packaged in a group of 4.

I wrapped the tin with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper that is cut 8 1/4 X 2. It is tight enough not to easily slide off, but does slide off and on.  The length gives a good bit of overlap, which I like for sturdiness.

The banner is from Heartwarming Hugs DSP as well.  I started with a piece cut 2 x 3.  It is punched using the Banner Triple Punch.  The sentiment is from the Gift Wrapped set.  I layered it using the Ornate Frames Dies.  The finishing touch is the bow I made with the Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon.  It ties wonderful bows that stay fluffy!

Thank you for stopping in today.  I will have another card project to share with you tomorrow.

Gift Bag Topper

I have another Sneak Peek today.  I immediately noticed these awesome dies in the upcoming Mini Catalog.  They are a bundle called Celebration Tidings.  But the dies are the star of the show in my opinion.

 

 

When I first began stamping many, many years ago, there was a heavy die named Top Note that was used as a bag topper quite often.  We really have not had anything similar until this. When I saw this set of dies, I thought of that and had to make a bag topper.  This is the 2nd largest of the dies, so they are more designed as a card layer.  But how adorable is this on these Printed Gusseted Cello Bags?

I die cut the piece first and then embossed it with the Wrapped In Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  There are two in the package and this is the “less tight” texture one.

I cut my Whisper White to fit inside the shapes of the topper and stamped the sentiment and the floral.  I colored the floral with Stampin’ Blends.  The idea I had for it sticking up is like from a place card holder.  I marked where the top of the topper hit on the Whisper White and then fussy cut just the upper section.  I like the look of this.

The sentiment and the floral are from the bundle, the Celebration Tidings Stamp set.  There are a variety of sentiments included.  The cello bag is actually 3 X 9 in size.  So I just cut off about 3″ from the top and folded it over.  When I was looking for a treat to use, I ran across a bag of these hand sanitizer that I bought “who knows when” to use in projects.  I wish I had found them sooner! LOL!!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have an enjoyable weekend and will check back on Monday for another new project.  And don’t forget about bonus days!  Read below.  Also if you do not have a current demonstrator I would love to assist you with your Stampin’ Up! products and send you the upcoming Mini Catalog.  It debuts in August.

Someone Sweet

I have a new project to share today.  And I am totally in Love with this bundle of products.  Handing out little treats and Random Act of Kindness cards is a pleasure for me.  This new bundle makes this So Easy!!!  This is a Sneak Peek from the upcoming August – December Mini Catalog.

 

 

These cuties are made using the Little Treats Bundle.  Aren’t they adorable?  I used the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper.  I am already in love with these new colors. What makes these extra special ,is that there are colors for feminine and masculine.  They may be a tad on the “sweet” side for some guys, but Hey they contain chocolate!!

Here is a view of the inside:

 

 

These little holders will comfortably hold two Ghirardelli chocolates in regular size.  I chose to go with two of the Mini Chirardelli chocolates.  They fit just below the top of the little pocket, so it allows the top to pull together without a bit of a bump.

There is nothing extra that I needed to do to make these other than just run the die through the cutting machine. It cuts and scores, as well as has the little tab and slot on the pocket.  No adhesive is needed at all for this little cutie.  I used the ribbon with the bookmark type tie to hold the tops together.

The sentiment die is also included in the die set.  I love the scallop with the stitching.  The sentiment is included in the stamp set.  There are sweet sayings for most occasions included in the set.

Thank you for stopping in today.  If you do not currently have a demonstrator, I would love to assist you and get catalogs into your hands.  Just reach out to me from the Contact Me button at the top of the page.

Easter Basket

I do not normally post on the weekends.  But I had a cute idea that was appropriate to share for a little Easter project.  I had the idea to use the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to make a little basket to hold 3 X 3 cards and envelopes.  After I made it, I thought it would make an adorable Easter Basket.  I did a video and hopefully you could make some of these for your little ones.

If you get my blog posts through an email, you may need to open it into a web browser to see the video.  I haven’t got all of the kinks out of the process yet.  They say practice makes perfect…..I sure hope so!!

I decorated the basket with the Welcome Easter little chick stamp.  I stamped it on a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock and die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The chick is stamped a little above half way on the die cut.  I used the design of the die , where you can see the chick’s top knot, as a line.  I scored across there and then secured it to the bottom of the basket and to the side.  You could also simply cut off that section and adhere the piece flush with the bottom of the basket.

The chick is stamped in Gray Granite Ink and colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  The yellow is both of the Daffodil Delight Blends.  The feet and beak are colored with the Light Mango Melody Blend.  I went around the chick with the Light Pool Party Blend.

The DSP is from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper and is one of my famous “back side” of the paper.  I have a tip in constructing the basket.  Put the DSP on while the box is laying flat.  I messed up in the video and forgot to do that!!  Of course I would make a mistake 🙂

Here is a picture of the 3X3 holder that I made originally

I hope you can use this idea to spread some extra cheer this Easter.  It will be different for all of us.  Take care!!

Sweet Treat

I have fallen into the not knowing what day it is.  I have been working on projects the last few weeks and have several ready to go.  They are just not blogged about.  So sorry for being late on this early Monday morning.

I have had some different treats in mind for the sweet Printed Gusseted Cello Bags.  These bags are adorable and are part of the Birthday Bonanza Suite of Products.  A large variety of items will fit in them.  For me it was all about the tag.  Here is my Sweet Treat for you.

 

And here is a closer look at the tag.

 

 

This was a very quick project, which I love!  But it is also great for leftover designer paper.  I have used the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.  For the flap, I used Terracotta Tile Card Stock to fold over the top of the bag and secured with a hand held stapler.  Any desk stapler will do for this.  I then layered a piece of the DSP over top of the card stock and secured it with multipurpose glue.

The tag is from the Bonanza Dies.  I cut the tag itself from Thick Whisper White card stock.  I placed a strip of the DSP ,that had been cut from sizing the flap layer, across the center of the tag. I used the dies to cut a sweet koala bear from the DSP and added him with some dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Little LadyBug stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  The word bubbles are from the Bonanza Dies as well.

To finish the tag, I added Gray Granite Textile Weave Ribbon through the tag hole .  I wanted a little extra, so added a piece of the Grapefruit Grove 1/8″ ribbon and tied a bow around the larger ribbon.  The tag is secured to the bag topper with a couple of dimensionals.  I thought the tag itself could be a cute little bookmark as well.  I have used this tag previously and folded it for a gift tag.  You can see that project HERE

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you can smile from this cute little koala.  I wish I could send one to all of you.  As an old Stampin’ Up! stamp said “Keep Calm and Stamp On” !
