Stampin’ Up! Holiday Trinkets Trio

Stampin up holiday trinkets trio

Wow, this is a week of wonderful surprises for me.  I received an email this a.m. from my virtual pal Cindy at The Creative Closet that my card from last week (shown here) was being used as a sample for the SCS color challenge (Very Vanilla, Really Rust, Going Gray).  Breathe in, breathe out.  Gigantic smile.

Yesterday was very productive in the holiday ideas "department" of my little crafting room.  In tandem with Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Extravaganza Sale (begins Wed., Nov. 26), I plan to share many tips and inspiration for gift boxes, tags, cards and beyond. 

Today kicks off with gift cards and coordinating envelopes, showcasing Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Scallop Envelope Die.  These adorable envies (3 1/4" x 2 1/4" folded) are perfect for small gift cards and make a hip and pretty statement.  Note:  They are not large enough to hold a standard gift card like from Target or Best Buy.  Here's an idea for a gift card holder.

I'm fascinated by all the amazing templates and tutorials for making your own envelopes from scratch.  A noble effort.  In contrast, a three second trip through the Big Shot with this handy envie die, shouts a convincing "pick me, pick me."

TIP:  Try using the die first and then running the die cut through the Big Shot with an embossing folder for delicious texture.  Cuttlebug Swiss Dots was used here.

TIP:  When paper piercing a small area or near the edge of card stock (like with this Scallop Circle) use a needle vs. a paper piercer to minimize creasing that can occur when poking with a larger piercer.

TIP:  A quick "to" and "from" on a tent or one-dimensional card is all you'll need to slip into the interior.  I opted for a simple chocolate rub-on and popped it up on dimensionals.  Die cuts and embossing were created with my Big Shot and Nestabilities Long Rectangles.

  1. You know, you are going to award yourself right into another job, girl! Pretty soon, we’ll be seeing you in magazines and on t.v.
    Keep it up. You inspire me.

  2. WOW! I thought they were lovely Christmas cards at first, not envelopes! And congratulations on being chosen at SCS! What an honor!

  3. Mary, too cute!!! Darlin’, do you emboss your paper before you put it in the Big Shot to do the scalloped envelope, or after you diecut the envelope?
    Thanks!
    Happy Turkey Day!

    Thanks for stopping by. I cut first and then popped the die cut in my embossing folder. Worked great for me and kept the “impressions” fresh (and not flattened by a second process through the machine. Make sense?

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Hugs,

    Mary

  4. Mary, Congratulations! That was a beautiful card with a color combo I never would have thought of. Well done.
