Happy Stampers Holiday Blog Hop – Stampin’ Up!

November Blog Hop

The Happy Stampers group is back with another blog hop!  Today, we have created projects with a holiday theme. This may be your first stop on the blog hop, or you may have linked to me from Amy Koender’s website. Either way, I hope you enjoy the projects I have in store for you today.  My projects today feature the Under the Tree Specialty DSP and the Festival of Trees stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  I just love how these turned out!

Festival of Trees Blog Hop (4 of 8)

For my birthday, my sister gave me a massage gift certificate, and I ended up winning a candle in a drawing from the spa.  I decided to create a custom box for the candle, using my gift box punch board and the fantastic Under the Tree Specialty DSP!

The box fits the candle perfectly! I jazzed up the adorable package by creating a belly band and adorning it with a tag created using the Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating Tree Punch.  I stamped my tree on whisper white card stock and then sandwiched it between two circles of craft card stock.  Add a star, and some other embellishments and presto… you have a super cute package that anyone would love to receive.

For my card, I used the same elements to create a coordinated look.  I used the stars textured embossing folder on the card base, to add some extra dimension to the front of the card.  I like how it mirrors the star on top of the tree and adds extra texture to the design.  I also looped a little linen thread behind the tag to provide another interesting element.  I like how it all came together.

I finished off the inside of my card, by adding a strip of the Under the Tree Specialty DSP to the inside of the card.  I am really pleased with how these projects turned out!

  1. Great box and card combo. Very cute! I used SU to make a set of Christmas cards for my mom’s November b-day. Ornamental Pine, Gentle Peace and Good Greetings. She loved them!


  2. Love the combination of card with matching gift box. What a gorgeous way to dress up a candle! All the little details you added to the box band and the card really make it fabulous.


  3. Love the combination of kraft, red and green for the holidays. Thanks for explaining how you put the stamped image between the 2 kraft circles and the tree stand on top. I enjoy learning all the different ways to use my punches and stamps! Thanks!


  4. The card and box are precious!
    Now this is my second Christmas with Stampin Up products. Feel that I am a novice at card making still. What I love most is making special cards for special people in my life. My problem is learning how much I can put on a card and still be able to mail it without trouble. Sadly, my moms Mothers Day Card never arrived when mailed. Don’t know what happened to it. But anyway I keep trying just the same.


  5. Your card and box are amazing. I just love the colors you chose. All the special finishing touches you added to them really make them super special. Someone is really going to like that gift!


  6. I love to use Stampin Up products for cards. But this year I am loving playing with the Curvy Keepsake Box to make fun treat boxes in lots of different themes.
