Tin of Tags and Christmas White Gift Box

Tin of Tags Assortment and White Gift Christmas Box

The Tin of Tags was one of the things that first caught my eye in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog because of the red tin!  Essentially I bought the red tin and the tag kit came with it!!  You can make 30 tags, 3 each of 10 designs! You do also need the Tin of Tags Stamp Set, unless you want to use other greetings you already have or even make some of the tags for other occasions.  You get the embellishments, baker’s twine, and washi tape in the tag kit!  And the best news, the Tin of Tags and the Tin of Tags Stamp Set are both discounted right now during the Stampin’ Up! Closeout!  Don’t hesitate in case other people also think this is a great deal, now that we are getting close to “wrapping season”!

While you are ordering the Tin of Tags and stamp set, put the White Gift Boxes on your order as well! They are perfect for small gifts or treats but they are not teeny. They are 3″ x 3″ x 3″. You can decorate them so many different ways and for any occasion.  Good to have on hand! For this gift box, I just made a belly band from the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack.  I cut each strip 2″ wide and matched the patterns (pretty well) on the sides since one obviously did not go all the way around.  This paper is even on sale half-price!!!  Gotta have it! I also tied the Real Red 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the middle.

Stitched Framelits and Stamps Flyer

Remember, these stamps are on sale and available through the end of November.  You can add them to your Online Extravaganza order! Remember, too, that the very popular Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies will be unorderable starting Monday, right now are backordered. I think that if you ordered those before Monday you would receive them sooner than if you wait until they are orderable again. Either way, you won’t be able to combine the dies with an Online Extravaganza order.

Easy Christmas Card Ideas…and the Stamps Are On Sale!

Tin of Tags Christmas Cards

Yesterday Stampin’ Up! announced a 25% off sale of select stamp sets that perhaps coordinate nicely with the newly introduced Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Here I used one of the stamp sets on sale, Tin of Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set, to make two easy Christmas cards! It’s that time of year! I don’t have the framelits yet, but I think they would add a nice touch to my greetings on my cards as a border.

Watch the Stampin’ Up! video below to see how to use the new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies!

My Christmas cards were very easy to make. I decided to make a 4 1/4″ square card. Instead of cutting the cardstock in half horizontally as we usually do, cut the length to 8 1/2″, then cut in half vertically (well, if you start with a full sheet of  cardstock, cut in half vertically and then trim each strip to 8 1/2″.) Score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half. I used a layer of the Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack as a background. The greetings on each card are stamped from the Tin of Tags Stamp Set. I die cut the squares with the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, but if you don’t have those, just cut your own squares. I also used the gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to add little accents on the one card.

The Tin of Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set of course coordinates with the cute Tin of Tags Project Kit.  Such a fun and easy way to sit down for a little while and make 30 tags to use on your Christmas gifts!  And you still have the cute red tin!  I love red, so in my case, I bought the red tin and the kit just came with it!!  But you can use the stamp set a million ways without the project kit, so don’t let that stop you.

Now you have the opportunity to purchase Stitched Shapes Framelits ahead of their official release in the 2017-2018 annual catalog and get 25% off coordinating stamp sets. These stamp sets bring out the beauty of the framelits.

Best Tips and Tricks for Using Fast Fuse Adhesive by Stampin’ Up!

Celebrate World Card Making Day Stampin' Up! Specials

Stampin’ Up! has special offers for you to celebrate World Card Making Day except the specials last through Wednesday, October 5th! One of the deals is to buy a Fast Fuse Adhesive and get a refill FREE (a $7.50 value!)! Fast Fuse works great where you want a strong hold, like making a box yourself!

Fast Fuse Adhesive for Box

Handmade Box Embossed Paper

 

 

 

 

 

 

When Stampin’ Up! first came out with Fast Fuse a few years ago, I did not have much luck with it, admittedly! I probably ruined a few rolls of adhesive before I got the hang of it, and even then, I didn’t always have the hang of it!  If it worked for me, it was probably just luck. But then I watched some videos online and kept playing with it, and now I can say I really like Fast Fuse!  I probably even use it more than I use SNAIL Adhesive.  So if you have had the same experience and written off Fast Fuse, I would urge you to watch these videos below and see if you can pick up some tips you may have forgotten or never knew about how to use Fast Fuse.

This first video shows the basics of using Fast Fuse and how to fix it if the adhesive has “snapped back” from not breaking at the end of your adhesive line. She says to not open the case!  Even now I sometimes have to roll that little applicator to get the adhesive back in place or pick off the gooby stuff aroun the opening on the case. But otherwise, it works fine and these things are an easy fix.

This second video is Donna Griffith from the Home Office showing how to make a box out of cardstock, which is a great video anyway, but later in the video she also gives tips about using Fast Fuse. If you only want to see that part, skip to about 6:40 in the video. (But I think watching how she makes this cute box is well worth your time and enjoyment!)

Donna suggests not putting your finger on the top of the Fast Fuse case like we are used to doing with SNAIL. I’m not positive that you can’t use it with your finger on top, but use a light pressure. I have been trying to remember to NOT put my finger on the top like Donna suggests. Just try it and see what you think. It was good for me to find that first video above again and listen to how this adhesive really works, even if you have been using Fast Fuse. It’s a good review.  I think Fast Fuse works well when you want a really good “stick”. But since it does stick so well, there’s no playing around when adhering your two things.  If you need a little time to move one layer or image around to get it just right, then you might prefer the Multipurpose Liquid Glue which allows for a little bit of repositioning before it sets up.

Watercolor Words Just For You Easy Card

Watercolor Words Just For You Easy Card

I opened the Stampin’ Up! Catalog for inspiration and BOOM! This easy Watercolor Words Just For You Card was on the first page I opened!  It even says “Quick & Easy” on the sample! I did change it a bit from the card I saw on page 135 but that’s fine!  Lots of times I think I am going to copy and I end up doing something either slightly or a lot different! I think we should all remember more often the wealth of inspiration and ideas in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog!  What a resource!

I have always loved the Watercolor Words Stamp Set that came out last year I believe. It’s just so versatile and easy to use. This card is photographed on a piece of Melon Mambo card stock but the card itself is just a Whisper White Thick Cardstock card base. The regular Whisper White is okay for a card base but the Thick Cardstock is better. You should have a package in your stash! Then I just stamped the flower and leaves and greeting, added a strip of washi tape down the side and tied on some White Baker’s Twine. So fun and easy! And for a little pizzazz I added three Rhinestone Jewels.

Since the sample in the catalog had the greeting stamped OVER the flower, I inked up the flower and leaves and stamped them “off” on a piece of scrap paper, THEN stamped onto the card. This gives a lighter image without using lighter colors of ink.  I used Melon Mambo ink for the flower and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.  I liked the flower and leaves as they were and decided to stamp the greeting below the flower since I had plenty of room. I wanted to use my Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tapethat determined the color ink I would use on the flower.?!

If you have this stamp set (or really any flower stamp set and greeting) I suggest you make a few simple cards like this right away and have them on hand! Once you start you will probably change up your design a little bit or perhaps add a little more embellishment to your card or who knows?! At any moment in time you might feel a different creative mood!

Remember, Stampin’ Up! Bonus Days are coming to a quick end! Today, tomorrow and Sunday!

I don’t know about where you live, but here in Houston it is too hot to do anything outside, or do much of anything at all, so you might as well turn on the a/c and sit and stamp this weekend!!
