Cup of Christmas

It’s time to lift up our cups and celebrate the Cup of Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog!  The celebration is for the patent pending Reversibles stamp set.  It includes specialized photopolymer stamps that allow you to stamp with both sides of the stamp for greater versatility.  The Cup of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Cup of Cheer Dies are available separately or for a savings of 10% can be purchased in the Cup of Christmas bundle.  The Cup of Christmas Stamp set includes 15 photopolymer stamps but with the reversible stamps, it’s like having two extra stamps added.  There are 13 dies including mugs, candy canes, holly and more in the set of Cup of Cheer dies.

In the video below, Brian showcases the new Cup of Christmas photopolymer stamp technology.

Having recently received the stamps, I can attest that it’s wonderful to be able to stamp reverse images.  It opens the door to greater creativity.  I’ll be sharing projects using the Cup of Cheer Bundle soon.  

Spread tidings of comfort and joy and a cup of cheer to all your friends and family this season with the Cup of Christmas Stamp Set and Cup of Cheer Dies.

Quick and Easy Gift Tag

It’s such fun to give small “thinking of you” gifts and the 3″ x 6″ gusseted cellophane bags from Stampin’ Up! are the perfect size for such purpose.  Naturally, the gift bag needs a gift tag and the one on the project below is quick and easy.  This project is perfect for using up scraps of cardstock.  Since we’re celebrating the arrival of Fall soon, leaves in Fall colors are used to embellish the tag.  The Gather Together Bundle includes the Gather Together Stamp Set and the Gathered Leaves Dies.  Can you see the dimension in the leaves?  The dies not only cut but emboss!  Details for creating the tag are listed below the project photo.

Treat Bag with Fall Leaves Tag

Card Details:
  • To create tag base, cut a 1-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  On one end of the cardstock, use the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to create the tag.  Use the corner rounder section on the Detailed Trio Punch to round the edges on the opposite end of the tag.
  • On the tag, stamp the large leaf from the Gather Together Stamp Set using Pear Pizzazz Classic Stampin’ Pad.  
  • Next, use the three leaves dies to cut a leaves from scraps of Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze cardstock.  One leaf in each color was cut.  TIP: By first lightly spritzing the cardstock with water and then cutting with the dies.   The embossed impression is much deeper.  Plus when the cardstock dries, the edges of the leaves curl just as Fall leaves curl.  
  • While the leaves are drying, stamp the sentiment from the Parcels and Petals Stamp Set (in the Annual Catalog) onto the tag using Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad.
  • Once the cut leaves are dry, sponge Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink onto each leaf.  Layer the leaves onto the tag below the sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • After adding your treats to the 3″ x 6″ cellophane bag, fold top over approximately 3/4″ and secure with a staple.  Fold 3″ x 2″ piece of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper in half and secure to the bag by using Snail Adhesive on each side of fold.  (you are sandwiching the bag top inside the Designer Series Paper)
  • Finish by adding the gift tag to the bag with Mini Stampin Dimensionals and add a Cajun Craze Linen Thread bow using a mini glue dot.

Winter Wonders

The holiday season will be here before we know it. And along with putting up the Christmas tree and spending snowy nights by the fire, you can enjoy Winter Wonders with Christmastime papercrafts.  There’s something about the holidays that brings out the crafter in all of us. Even non-crafters like making simple and fun projects to celebrate the season. And since “simple and fun” is Paper Pumpkin’s middle name, they have come up with two Winter Wonder kits.  To kick things off, in October and November Paper Pumpkin is offering back-to-back coordinating kits.  One of the kits comes with Christmas cards, the other with Christmas tags.  Both kits make it easy for you to add a handmade, personal touch to your holiday giving—without a lot of fuss. It’s Christmas made easy with Paper Pumpkin!
