Winter Woods Pillow Box

Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

 When I saw the Winter Woods Bundle from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, I knew that it was a must have.  What a great set of dies and a beautiful stamp set!  I love that it coordinates so well with 2 other popular stamp sets, Rooted in Nature and Lovely as a Tree.

Hint:  The ready made Kraft Pillow Boxes are perfect for tucking in a gift card or other small gift.

Plus, we recently became a Certified Tree Farm on our little piece of paradise in rural Ohio, thanks in a large part to our son, Bryan.  Here he is helping us prepare for a new planting of 1,600 trees.  The beautiful Winter Woods stamp set simply had to hop on my shelf. 

Watch as Tanner Smedley from the Stampin' Up! home office introduces the Winter Woods Bundle, then I will share an easy stamping technique for creating depth on your trees.

 

The Winter Woods Bundle will be available in my Online Store starting Wednesday, September 5, 2018.


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Both my stamping technique and layered dies, work together to make the fabulous textured tree.  Love the way I can flip up the branches with this In the Woods Die.

Here's the tree stamped with Mint Macaron Ink.  Not bad, but let's step it up a notch with this simple stamping technique.


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

The Stamparatus, stamp positioning tool is key to making this technique work.  Each stamped layer must line up perfectly.  After stamping my base layer with Mint Macaron ink, I then pounced Shaded Spruce ink randomly across my stamp and stamped a second layer of color.

I repeated the process with Tranquil Tide ink to get this tree.  I stamped two trees, then cut them with dies from the In the Wood Die set and stacked an curled them for a really full look.  Beautiful!

Rooted in Nature Gift Bag & Card

Rooted in Nature Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Joe has been a real peach helping me out in my Craft Room cutting card bases, fraying twine and pitching in wherever needed.  Operating with one wing in the craft room can be challenging.  Anyway thanks to my sweet husband I was able to share with you today's beautiful  Gift Bag and Card made with the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the Nature's Root Dies.


Rooted in Nature Stampin' Up!

I love that I can both emboss and die cut leaves using the Nature's Roots Dies.  Notice the gorgeous detailed gold foil leaves.  Hint:  Ordinary, every day coffee filters make marvelous inexpensive gift bag toppers.


Rooted in Nature Stampin' Up!

I'm still pecking out my Blog Posts with one hand, so I'll keep this short and sweet.  I've included a supply list at the bottom of this post for your shopping convenience.  Feel free to ask any questions about today's projects in the comments.

Hello Friends,

It's back to school time and that means that there's a Sales Taxes Holiday in these states (Ohio, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina, Virginia, Wisconsin, Arkansas and Florida)  starting today or tomorrow.  Texas  waits until next weekend.  

To find out which states are participating—and which products will be tax-free for each state—download this.

Whether you're sending gifts to your College Students or a gift to your children's teachers, today's Mini Gable Box fits the occasion.  The gal holding the books was stamped with the Hand Delivered Stamp set.  Did you enjoy making paper dolls as a kid? Then you'll enjoy the feel of the Hand Delivered stamp set which lets you create beautiful ladies for many beautiful occasions.

Note:  The Hand Delivered stamp set is a Hostess set and is only available with Hostess rewards on orders over $150.

I used gobs of Stampin' Blends to color the girl with the huge stack of books.  There were too many to list.  I just had fun.  You can find all our Stampin' Blends choices here.

Gable Box Tips

I started with a Lustrous White Mini Gable Box.

To color my box blue, I filled my spritzer with rubbing alcohol and a few drops of Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I then spritzed my entire box and set it aside to dry.

Ohio Sales Tax Holiday begins today!  

Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies in July and August. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)
