At Home with You Tag and Video

I made this tag for a house warming gift. It is based on the tag from page 56 in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, using the stamp set At Home With You. They attached their door with a wreath to a package of cookies! Here I used the same colors as the house I was "warming" with my gift of an American flag.

There are so many ways to use the door and all of the stamps in this set. See below for some more examples and product information.

Sweet Christmas Gift Tags In a Cute Box

I know it's early to be making Christmas Projects, but I received my Holiday Catalog pre-order weeks ago and I just couldn't help but play with the Festive Farmhouse Suite along with the Peaceful Noel and Feather & Frost stamp sets! I had an inaugural gathering in my new Craft Studio and I wanted to have a fun project for the ladies to take home.

The new Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used on top of this box. See those wonderful stitches on the banner with the star print from the Festive Farmhouse DSP? That is from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies!

We made three gift cards and a sweet mini pizza box to keep them in. It could also be a gift that you bring to your host at a dinner party during the holidays, OR you could use the box to put a little something sweet at a table place setting. The possibilities are endless!

This sweet checked card shows off the color scheme I chose from Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, the 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim and the Merry Little Christmas sentiment from the Peaceful Noel stamp set.  The Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine will help tie this card onto a package.

Next I used the leaves and berries stamp from the Feathers & Frost stamp set, stamping them onto Whisper White card stock using VersaMark and Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. I colored in the leaves using So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker and the berries with a Cherry Cobbler SW Marker. JOY is from the same stamp set and it's embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The ribbon being the sentiment is Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon. The chord is retired stretch silver.

Lastly, this sweet bird from Feather & Frost finds a home in the center of a Boxwood Wreath Embellishment. I bought the wreaths over a year ago, but hadn't used on yet! The bird is colored using Dark and Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends and a So Saffron marker. Behind the bird and wreath is a flag that I stamped using the new Buffalo Check background stamp. The chord is retired gold chord.

Thank you for looking today! Let me know if you have any questions on how I made these cards or the box. I'd love to answer them.

Two Of My Favorite Things...

**Update: See the comments for measurements and brief instructions to make this tea bag and chocolate holder!

For the inaugural stamping session in my new craft studio, I invited 7 good friends to a tea. We crafted, then we had a tea luncheon and then we crafted some more! These are the favors that I made for each guest. (You can come back tomorrow to see the project each guest made - HINT: CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY CATALOG!)

I did use some retired products, but I'm really glad I still have them! I used the specialty paper that is behind my sentiment and decoration. It has rose gold accent "bubbles" all over it and my tableware was gold, white and pink. The decorations were made using Springtime Impressions Thinlits, Mini Treat Bag Thinlits for the "enjoy" (retired) and Sweet Cake Framelits for the Soft Sea Foam leaves. The vellum leaves were cut out using the Flourish Thinlits. The vellum stitched banner behind the "enjoy" is from the NEW Farmhouse Framelits Dies, which is available starting today!

I will be showing some festive Farmhouse projects when it gets closer to Christmas.

The inside of my tea party favor holds my favorite things - tea and chocolate! There is a Stash Earl Grey tea bag and a Ghirardelli chocolate square. YUM.

Birthday Banners and Balloon Bouquets

Tami at Stamp With Tami made a similar card to this one and I just had to use this layout! The stamp set is Birthday Banners. I changed the designer series paper and the colors, then added some ribbon across the front. The pearls were just the last touch, as well.

This makes a fantastic and festive birthday card for any age person! Using the Bunch of Banners Framelits and the Balloon Bouquet Punch makes it easy to whip up for that birthday guy or gal!
