Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread for a Holly Jolly Christmas Triple Square Card and a Blog Candy Winner!

Good morning!  It’s a BIG Day!  I’ve already ordered our new Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalogs and Jan – Feb 2022 Sale-A-Bration Brochures and will be mailing them out to you (you know who you are!) as soon as I can.  And I…MIGHT?…have done a little more pre-ordering!  I can’t wait to share more new goodies with you!

I’ve got a fun card for you this morning!  I saw a Triple Square card – made by LeeAnn Greff – and thought it was too fun.  So…I made one for myself.  I used the Gingerbread & Peppermints DSP and a couple of sentiments from the Frosted Gingerbread and Holly Jolly Christmas stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

The red-white-cream color palette is from the Cupcake Inspirations challenge!

I started with a Real Red card base and – to the front and the inside – adhered a piece of Real Red plaid paper from the Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack, using Liquid Glue.

I ran a Very Vanilla panel thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the NEW Gingham Embossing Folder (this is coming SOON in the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog!).  Then I matted it on Basic White for the card front.

To make the “triple square” I started with a square of the Regals DSP – same design that I’d used on the card base – and matted it on Basic White using Liquid Glue.

The next layer is a same-size square of Gingerbread & Peppermints 6″ x 6″ DSP – also matted on Basic White.

I used my Grid Paper to help me get the two matted squares lined up correctly – then adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment – I cut a 2″ square of Basic White and stamped the big sentiment from Holly Jolly Christmas in Real Red.  Then I matted it on another square of the same Real Red Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP that I’d been using.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment onto the layered squares.  You can see from the photo above that the sentiment “diamond”  is lined up in the same orientation as the BOTTOM large square.  THAT and being “matted” with the same paper as the bottom square – is what creates the illusion!

I adhered the whole thing onto the Very Vanilla card front with Liquid Glue.

I added some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment and some peppermints from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set in Real Red on a Very Vanilla panel.  Those three peppermints are all on one stamp – and they fit perfectly in a corner!

I added a Red Rhinestone, then used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic White mat and then into my card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Frosted Gingerbread peppermints on the front…

…and added some more Gingerbread & Peppermints 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Triple-Square technique, don’t you?  I think I need to try a few more cards using it!  I really like how this one turned out – with the marriage of the Holly Jolly Christmas and Frosted Gingerbread sets.  And the addition of the Gingerbread & Peppermints DSP was kind of perfect (she says modestly!)!

I hope you like!

When looking for signs of “winter” – SOME people look for falling leaves.  Snow.  Overcast and blustery days.

For us? We look for all that.  But the REAL signs are fuzz-bucket ponies and…

THAT means winter is here for real here at the Deatherage house!

Stampin’ Up! Gingerbread & Peppermints Square Gift Boxes with Video Tutorial

Well – November is winding down FAST, huh?  It’s already the LAST Sunday of the month.  Wow.

Just.  WOW!  😳😳😳 Hope the long weekend went well.  Tell me….do you have your Christmas tree up yet??  I do not.

Yet! 😉

If you were able to join me for my Facebook live video last evening, I appreciate you spending part of your holiday weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay…here ’tis!

I had a friend – and Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team member! – ask me to help her figure out how to modify a little gift box that she’d seen over at Nigezza Creates.  She wanted something a little bigger that would fit some chocolate.  You KNOW I am all about MORE chocolate, so…I stuck my engineer hat on and…came up with a 1 1/2″ Square Treat box with the fun and Christmas-y Gingerbread & Peppermints 6″ x 6″ DSP – plus…a few little tags and sentiments here and there.  Take a look-see:

While I was making it, I thought…wonder if I couldn’t just give y’all (and myself!) a handy formula so that you could create whatever size box you needed (within the constraints of your cardstock size, of course!).  And…so I did.  And made a 2 3/4″ Square Gift Box, too!

 

The basics are the same for any size – and the Box Size you WANT is the starting point for all the calculations!

For the 1 1/2″ square, I started with a 5″ x 6 1/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock.  Using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, I scored along the long side at 1 1/2″, 3″, 4 1/2″ and 6″.  Then I rotated the cardstock to put the short side up and scored at 1/4″, 1 3/4″, 3 1/4″ and 4 3/4″.

I used scissors to cut flaps and tabs…

..as you can see here (and at about the 7:45 point in the video!).

I used my Paper Snips to trim rounded corners on the large tabs.

In the video, I matted the small DSP squares on Basic White and then adhered them to the square panels of the box base.

I selected my “top” and used the very top of the head on the Snowman Builder Punch to cut a “thumb” hole.

Then I added Liquid Glue the small tab on the right side of the base in the picture above.  I closed the box together – check the video at about the 19 minute mark to see how!

I used a sentiment from the Peaceful Cabin stamp set and stamped it in Old Olive on Basic White.  Then I cut it with a small tag die from the Ornate Frames die set.  I also cut a Real Red tag.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the two little tags together – slightly offset but with the tiny holes lined up.

I ran a piece of white Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack thru the hole and tied a little bow.  I adhered the tag with a Glue Dot.

Using the small circle die in the Gingerbread Die set, I cut a small Basic White circle.  Then I cut the coordinating “peppermint swirl” die cut in Real Red.  I adhered the swirl to the circle with Liquid Glue, then popped it on the end of the tag with a Stampin’ Dimensional – and the box was done!

The large box has some Real Red 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon and a tag made with the Giving Gifts and Tailored Made Tags die sets.

I adhered the  Basic White Tailored Made Tag to the back of the Real Red detailed cut with Liquid Glue – adhering “bad” side to “bad” side.  That left the nicer “front” side visible on the back – where I stamped an Old Olive sentiment from the Festive & Bright set.

Et Voila!  I love this little Square Gift Box – whether it’s 1″, 1 1/2″ or a “huge” (😉) 2 3/4″!  Note:  2 3/4″ is about as big as you can get with 12″ x 12″ cardstock!

While I’ve used the Gingerbread & Peppermints DSP here – you can use whatever DSP suits your occasion!  Look thru your stamps and dies (although you NEED the Ornate Frames, Tailor Made Tags and Giving Gifts Die Sets – just saying!) and use the sentiments that you’ve got! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix 

Wayne was sitting on the end of the couch yesterday afternoon watching the UGA/GT game (or…was it a game or a schooling? 😉  GO UGA!) and made the mistake of getting up to go to the bathroom.

As soon as he cleared the hallway – the Man took advantage of the newly opened “spot” on the sofa.

Wayne returned to find…

…that necessitated some pooch-pouncing!

Finny loves a good pooch-pouncing!

…but they never last NEAR long enough!

Come back, Dad – I’m in your spot and I need pounced!

Next up…let’s talk…Paper Pumpkin!

I have my November Paper Pumpkin and, although I haven’t put it together – I’m looking forward to it, for sure!  I send a lot of cookies – and dog treats! – each holiday – and these are going to be so stinkin’ cute to use as my gift packaging!

Guess that’s why they named the kit…Gifts Galore?? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

I opened the kit up to see what all we got – and it’s everything to make nine treat boxes…including a roll of Tear & Tape and nine food-safe, decorated treat bags!

 

…in three super cute holiday designs!

I can totally see cookies – for people OR dogs! – in these treat holders.  SO much more fun than a ziploc!! 😉

I also saw that there are REFILLS – so…if you have this kit already – AND you need to make more to send all the yummy cookies and candies and treats you do each year…here ’tis!  I sure wouldn’t wait around – I think this one could sell out quick! 😳

 

So…are YOU a Paper Pumpkin subscriber?  You’ll need to be in order to buy that refill!

If you sign up before 10 Dec 2021…then you’ll be watching for the December Kit – the Lots of Fun Kit!

What’s not to “loaf” about a punny joke? It never hurts to have a little laughter, light-heartedness, and humor sprinkled into your schedule. If you’re a fan of fun, get a kick out of clever crafts, and can’t keep it together when you hear a classic knee-slapper, you’ll go bananas over this month’s cute ‘n’ quirky kit!

The Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit includes enough egg-citing elements to create nine cards and coordinating envelopes. From giddy gingham to splatters and stripes, this playful Paper Pumpkin kit features a fun and fresh look with one-of-a-kind patterns and designs! Egg-cellent for any occasion, reason, or season throughout the year, the kit’s pun-packed stamp set provides completely customizable characters for a very versatile crafting experience. Pair each stamp with its matching die-cut snack, then mix up the faces and accessories for an absolutely adorable accent!

Finn Fan Fix 

 

After dinner yesterday, we all took a puppy or two and headed outside for the doing of “the business”.  😉

They ran – they played – they chewed leaves (and each other).  They….you know.

Jan is doing an amazing job getting these little messes ready for their new homes!  She calls them all to her and has them sit, then gives them all a little treat!  They are smart smart kids!

All that playing and learning resulted in….thirsty puppies!

And soon after, it all crashed.  The whole shootin’ match!

Right into a pile of puppies!

 

It was a good day, indeed!

Stampin’ Up! Last Day to Enter for Blog Candy and Happy Gotcha Day, Finn!

Good morning, y’all – happy Saturday! Now – usually, I’d give you a sneak peek of the card I am planning to make with you this evening.

Which would mean I’d need to HAVE a card to sneak peek.  But – here’s the thing.  I did something to my back yesterday morning.  No idea what.  Might just have been my parts realizing they’re 60?  I dunno.  I took a Flexeril and some Ibuprofen and then got in the only spot that didn’t hurt.  Bed.

I discovered that Flexeril has the ‘benefit” of making me sleep all day, is totally crafty-mojo-sucking….and does little-to-nothing for my back.

The whole thing ended up with me NOT making a card yesterday.  🙁

That said – I am ASSUMING that things will go as they have in the past and I’ll find the pain has subsided as quickly as it came on when I get moving today.  Which means that I WILL get a card made and I WILL be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page this evening at 7pm Eastern.

In the meantime..wanted to remind you that this is Happy 5th Gotcha Day for the Finn-man!!

Calgary Humane Society on Twitter: "Happy Gotcha Day 🐾 Gotcha Day celebrates the day a new family member was added by adoption. We are SO grateful for our amazing adopters and welcoming
