2022 Stampin' Up! Christmas Crafting Kits

Christmas-Kits-LiveStampin Up has two great 2022 Christmas crafting kits currently in the online store and are only available while supplies last!

These two kits have everything you need to create some great projects that you can use this holiday season.

Cozy-bright-kit

One is a Christmas card kit called Cozy & Bright Kit (English) [160338] with a cinnamon and orange cider theme that's usually associated with this joyous season. It would be a great invitation for an open house or it would make a fun Christmas card.  Your recipients would love it.

Although the project looks really involved, difficult to put together, and a like a really over-the-top card, it's very simple. And, as with all of our Stampin Up kits, there are step-by-step instructions with pictures which is always a plus.

Christmas-Gifting-Kit

The other kit is called the Christmas Gifting Kit [160342]. It's a kit with all the supplies to make nine easy tags with a little pocket card that attaches to the tag with a piece of twine.

Tuck a little cash inside, a coupon, a gift card, or anything you'd like. I think these would be great to hang on your Christmas tree with a little cash or candy tucked inside for young visitors during the holidays.

You can even use it for a Christmas cookie exchange where you can tuck the recipe in the pocket and attach the tag to your little package of baked goods.

Let's take a look at the LIVE video from Thursday night where you can see how easy the assembly can be.

Here are the links to the kits and the scissors used in the video.  Order some for your friends, too, and have a fun night of crafting!

Easy Techinque and a Fun Fold Card with Soft Seedlings

Soft-seedlings-card-baby-wipeFrom last week's YouTube Premiere, here's a fun fold card and the baby wipe technique with the Soft Seedlings stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.

This technique has been a while for a WHILE!  It's been almost that long since this has been used on a card or any project of mine!  It's so simple!  All you need is a stamp, baby wipe, ans assorted ink refills.

Baby-wipe-technique-soft-seedlingsAnd, even though you may use the same colors each time, your project will look different due to how much and the way you apply the drops of ink to the baby wipe.

Here's the recording of the Premiere from last week so you can create it yourself!  Be sure to add this beautiful Soft Seedlings stamp set to your order!

Lisa's Inklings:

2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Series #3

2022-stampin-up-halloween-gnome-towelWe are switching it up a bit this week for the third in a series of 2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Projects!  This time we are looking at a cute wrap for a gift for the "young at heart".

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am always looking for cute seasonal towels or towels that coordinate with our Stampin' Up! stamp sets or bundles.  Our daughter, Kristen, has a good eye for trends, too, and she picked up a couple of gnome-themed towels at TJ Maxx last week.

These tags are simple to make and take a simple gift and turn it into something special.  Below is a different towel with three little gnomes embroidered along the bottom.

2022-halloween-stampin-up-gnome-giftLet's take a look to see how simple it is and I encourage you to try it, too!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Scraps of Basic Black, Petal Pink, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie, Basic White

Fun Fold Card Video Tutorial with Stampin' Up! A Fish and A Wish

Stampin-up-fun-fold-card-a-fish-and-a-wishThis fun fold card with Stampin' Up! A Fish and A Wish is one you will want to make over and over again.  A fun fold card refers to any card that has a fold or folds that are different from the typical "fold in half" card.

During our Stars team meeting, this was our mystery card project.  Prior to the meeting, the "recipe" was posted on our group page and during the second half of our meeting, we all created our cards. There was a lovely variation of styles and colors!  We'd love for you to join the fun and there's a special gift for you from Stampin' Up! if you purchase the Starter Kit by August 31st! Let me know if you want to know more!

Here's the video with the how-to tutorial so you can make it, too!

Lisa's Inkings:

Fun-fold-card-a-fish-and-a-wishThe inside of the card is "fancy", too!  Those little fish are darling and the stamp punch combo makes it so easy!

A fish & a wish

Here is a list of supplies used to create this sweet project.  I can't wait for you to try it!  Thank you so much for your purchase.  Each time you make a purchase from me, it supports my business and allows me to continue to share with you. I would be honored to serve as your demonstrator.

A stamp set and punch combo is a great selection for quick cards or beginner stampers.  Be sure to watch the video above for a tip on stamping and punching and then try this fun fold card with Stampin' Up! A Fish & A Wish!

Base: Basic White 8 1/2" X 11" Cardstock [159276] or Very Vanilla 5-1/2 x 8-1/2

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!
