Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home Gift Idea

Honeybee-home-stampin-up-gift-ideaToday's project is a Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home gift idea.  This one has been in my "pocket" for a while and life has been so busy, that it is delayed here on the blog.

If you have been following me for a while, you know that this is a favorite gift idea of mine and this crafter is always on the lookout for cute tea towels or kitchen towels that coordinate with our stamps and dies.  Stampin' Up! is fabulous at staying on trend so these usually are very easy to find!

Here are a couple more of my favorite "fancied-up" towels...
This one includes a cute and simple gift box as part of the presentation.

Did you see this one with the non-traditional colored rainbow?

Here's the quick video how-to for today's gift project...

Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home Gift Idea

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Cut your paper for your "tag" so that it complements the towel.  On this one, the patterned paper is cut 3-1/4 " square, and the coordinating card stock is 3-1/2" square.
  • You can use ribbon, twine, or jute to thread through the punched holes. 
  • Notice how the flowers extend beyond the tag?  You are not confined to that space.  Think outside of the box!

Here are the supplies that are currently available used on this project...

Product List

Honeybee-home-towel-diy-giftThere are so many ways to use your paper crafting supplies to make a simple gift extra special.  Use this Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home gift idea as inspiration to create your own DIY gift idea then share it with us over on Ink and Inspirations Stampers on Facebook!

Life, Priorities, and Father's Day

DadWith Father's Day approaching this weekend, it is fitting that this man and a Father's Day card be the subject of today's post.  For the last few months, this man has been our family's priority getting him the care he needs to make these golden years of his life the best possible.  We appreciate your good thoughts and prayers for healing.

Fathers-day-card-best-dadIf you missed this post, you need to check out these other cards made with the same suite as this Father's Day card.  The He's the Man Suite from the Stampin' Up! Annual catalog is fabulous!  This paper crafter could NOT stop creating with it!  The stamp set and dies are awesome but the specialty designer paper with two sheets of die cut included make it extra special and so easy to create cards for your guy.  That diamond with the Best Day Award pictured above is just one example.

Stampin-up-fathers-day-card-hes-the-manAlso from the die sheet is the single star, the strip of stars and the journaling block that is the landing point for all those intricate pieces.  The circle, label, and argyle-look pieces are elements cut with the dies from the suite. And, did you notice?  There is no stamping on the card front.


But, the inside of the card has the Father's Day sentiment on another one of the die cut labels.

Best-dad-award-hes-the-manEven with all the elements on the front of this card, it still has a clean cut and classic look...don't you think?

Here is a list of supplies used for this card.  I truly appreciate your support. Every order placed through my online store helps support my business and if you are do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator,  I would be grateful and honored to serve as yours.

Product List

Make cards for Father's Day or any day for the guys in your life who are your top priority and shop for this suite now to get started!

Masculine Birthday Cards with Stampin' Up! He's the Man

YouTube Thumbnail-Magic(1)Last week's Premiere featured two masculine birthday cards with the new Stampin' Up! Here's the Man Suite. You will love this group of products and if you struggle with masculine-themed cards, this is for you!

The die-cuts in the He's The Man 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper [159068] are fantastic for making quick cards!  It was hard to stop creating once getting started with these.

Here's the recording of the video from the Premiere.

Masculine Birthday Cards with Stampin' Up! He's the Man

Lisa's Inklings:
-For the diagonal cut on the He's The Man 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper [159068], upper left to the lower right of two prints.  It's easiest if one of the prints does not have specific directionality.
-For the fun fold, cut your card stock 4-1/4 x 11.  Score at 5-1/2 and cut 3" off of what will be the front of the card.

Masculine-birthday-card-hes-the-manFour dies were used on the card above. The two Crushed Curry Cardstock [131199] banners are cut with one die!


Keep in mind that you don't always have to stamp on neutral card stock.  On this card, Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad [147114] was used on Soft Succulent 8 1/2" X 11" Cardstock [155776].

Masculine-birthday-card-stampin-up-hes-the-manThe inside of the card has a simple strip of leftover designer paper on a Basic White Cardstock [159276] layer.

Bbq-masculine-birthday-cardWhat an easy fun fold card!  Just change the orientation of a piece cut from the front.

Handmade-masculine-birthday-card-fun-foldThe card front covers the inside layer of the card.  Here, two scrap strips of patterned paper were used on the Basic White piece.

Masculine-fun-fold-card-hes-the-manThis sentiment could be used for a birthday card, congratulatory card, or graduation card.  There is no sentiment stamped on the inside so that it can be customized later for the occasion.

Here are the supplies used for these cards...

Each time you place an order through my online store, it supports my business and allows me to continue sharing!  If you do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I would be honored and grateful to serve as yours.



The Stampin' Up! He's the Man Suite is just what you need for cards for those guys in your life!  Get it now for your Father's Day cards and masculine birthday cards!

On Friday February 11, 2022, my dear friend's (Alicia) 16 year old son, Carlos, went into the ER for abdominal pain and after a CT scan showing swollen lymph nodes and abnormal lab work, he was transferred to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. 

After a biopsy, bone marrow biopsies and lumbar puncture, Carlos was diagnosed with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma.  He has overcome many hurdles and is doing better but he has been at Texas Children’s since that day in February. 

During the month of June, I will be donating the proceeds from my Stampin’ Up! sales to the Rodriguez family. Please know that with each order you place from me, you are helping this sweet family during this very difficult time. Thank you so much!

Make A Card for Someone Amazing with a Special Ribbon Treatment - FREE PDF

Color-contour-tutorial-medleyToday's project is a card-making idea with a special ribbon treatment to give to a friend or other amazing person in your life featuring the Color & Contour Set and Coordinating Dies.  I was so glad to see these carry over into the new annual catalog from Stampin' Up!  The layering possibilities with these dies are too many to count!

Highlighted on this card this ribbon treatment that is a nice alternative to a bow.  Although this card has a definite feminine feel, this same technique can be used on a masculine card by securing the looped ribbon with a  Linen Thread knot instead of a bow.

You can make this card using the directions found on the downloadable PDF below.  Save to a file on your computer or tablet or print it as a hard copy file.

Makeover Magic #4 - Mini Gift Bag or Gift Card Holder for the 2022 Graduate

YouTube Thumbnail-Magic(3)This 4th edition of Makeover Magic is a Gift Bag or Gift Card Holder for your 2022 Graduate.  The original was made for a thank you gift but the size is just right for cash, gift cards, or a little gift.

Mini-bag-gift-card-holder-graduate-2022The makeover version uses the beautiful new Texture Chic 12" X 12"  Specialty Designer Series Paper [158808] from the new annual catalog along with the dies from All That Dies [159078] and the sentiment from Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set (English) [158028].  There wasn't one piece of gold foil in my stash so the punched stems are gold embossed to coordinate with the other elements of the bag.

Let's take a look at the video so you can make one today!
