Stampin’ Up! Ombre Gift Bags Gift Giving Idea

Birthdays. Graduations. Anniversaries. And just because.

There are plenty of reasons coming up why you’ll need to give a gift and I have a really sweet gift holder to help!

It’ll fit Stampin’ Up! embellishments, ribbon, chocolate, or anything really!

You’ll need to start off with our Ombre Gift Bag. Then to create your flowers, stamp the jar and flowers in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock. I cut the jar out with the Jar Punch. I colored in the flowers using Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, and Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it out.

I folded over a piece of Polished Pink ribbon and adhered the jar and flowers over it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then added a couple of jewels next to it.

Next I created my notecard by cutting a Basic White panel 3″ x 6″, scoring at 3″. I colored it the same and added the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set.

Pause for a funny story, I had the bag, card, and envelope ready to go. Well, my youngest for Mother’s Day ran downstairs to my stash and filled it out for me before I had photographed it. So here’s how she addressed the envelope – “To: Miss Mother” with some hearts coming out of the jar.

I guess my plain jar wasn’t good enough. 😉

Lastly, I trimmed down an envelope to make it fit the small notecard.

You’re going to want to check out the video below to see how I made the gift bag, card, but more specifically, the envelope! Have fun making a beautiful gift holder for your beautiful gift!

Stampin’ Up! Mother’s Day Gift Giving Idea

Mother’s Day is coming up and with it a great opportunity to say thank you to mom!

Showing moms gratitude on Mother’s Day goes beyond even our biological mom. It can be a step-mom, grandma, daughter who is a mom, a mother figure, or a good friend who is a mom.

All moms deserve to be acknowledged, praised, and thanked.

I have a great gift idea for that special mom in your life – a Box of Cards!!

Moms love to mail cards and a gift box full of five beautifully handmade cards with coordinating envelopes will be just the thing she wants for Mother’s Day.

The acetate box is decorated itself making it easy for Mom to store the cards and easy for you to gift them.

Included in the five cards is a thank you card, congratulations card, birthday card, get well soon card, and a general greetings card.

Each card comes with a specially coordinating envelope.

The cost is $20, including shipping.

Stampin’ Up! Gift Wrapping & Gift Tag

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop theme is Wrap It up/Gifts. Happy hopping!

I have to say I found this challenging since I make cards 99% of the time – they’re kind of my jam. But I did have a small gift that needed wrapping, so I decided to have fun with this theme.

I wrapped my gift using a pattern from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper. I wrapped around a Shaded Spruce Ribbon in a knot.

I used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to cut out a 2″ Real Red tag and a 1″ Whisper White tag. On the smaller tag, I stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce ink. At the bottom of the Real Red tag, I adhered a small piece of DSP.

I stamped the tree from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce ink, cutting it out with the Pine Tree Punch. I adhered it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I put a piece of Real Red ribbon through the hole of the tags and then secured it with Gold Thread. With the Gold Thread, I also put two jingle bells and wound it around the Shaded Spruce ribbon to secure it to the gift.

Thanks for checking out my gift wrapping project today! I hope it’s inspired you to make gift wrapping really beautiful and special this year!
