Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Simple Sprinkles of Thanks!

Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - Simple Sprinkles of Thanks! close up

oooo, I could get into the whole sequin thing!

Stampin’ Up! changed  the In colour coordinating products with our catalogue change, and brought in these gorgeous sequins you can see here.  There are also Stars and Hearts aswell as the circles, but I just wanted to use these.

So you can see my splats of Gorgeous Grunge using Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe.   I so love this trio of colours!

I decided to bring a 4th colour in to play, so I stamped the Thanks from Another Thank You with Baked Brown Sugar.

I rather like to have nesting punches, so I decided to punch it using the Large Oval and then back it with a Scalloped Oval of the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Isn’t it so pretty?

Then a twist of linen thread and the…

Memories Worth Saving

I am a HUGE fan of the Finest Simplicity kit! The colors are soothing and soft, and work well with your photos. The embellishments are subtle, add depth to a project, but don’t avert your eyes away from the pictures! LOVE this and hope you do too! I wanted to show you how versatile the kit is, so I used very few elements from other kits to create these four pages. – Heather Summers, My Digital Studio Design Team

With the holidays just around the corner, the time to create beautiful holiday cards, tags, and home decor is running out. Thankfully Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Linda

Yamamoto and Sylvie Drader have come to the rescue with some fabulous ideas using
the Stamp-a-tag Kit.Linda is from Burlington, Ontario and has been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator since April 2002! Here’s what Linda said about her projects:
“I had fun creating this fir tree. The textured tags are held in place with Glimmer Brads
and I spritzed the tree with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. Then I created a fancy
“star” for the top of the tree with the Gold Foil Sheets and the Rosette Die. I’m not sure if you can see it in the photo, but trust me, this tree is very shimmery in real life and would make a beautiful centerpiece for your Christmas table!”

“For the most part, I tried to use all items that came with the Stamp-a-tag Kit to create
these. The green ribbon I used on the left tag to make the tree is actually part of the
packaging in the kit – I really didn’t let anything go to waste! Cherry Cobbler Baker’s
 formed into a circle looks like candy (especially if you coat it with Crystal Effects)
and Old Olive Baker’s Twine threaded through pierced holes creates a tree outline. I
created an ombre effect on two of the tags and the plaid effect on the other is done
using the ink spots directly onto the tag in a grid pattern. I love the Winter Frost
Designer Series Paper
 and couldn’t resist using it to create a folded tree (from a
punched circle). Tags like these are sure to let the recipient know that something good
is inside the wrapping!!”

“Once the gifting is over, the thanking begins…and this card is great for someone to
whom you want to give LOTS of thanks. I rolled up a length of the Birch Paper Ribbon
(found in the Thankful Tablescape Kit) to create a “dowel” to hang the various tags in a
rainbow of colors. I adhered the dowel with Sticky Strip so it would stay securely in
place on the card, but left the tags hanging freely for some fun movement.”

“These are fun and easy last minute holiday cards using the Season of Style Designer
Series Paper
 which coordinates with the colors in the Stamp-a-Tag Kit. I made a
Happy Christmas card with a custom envelope that I made from a simple rectangle of
Designer Series Paper folded in thirds. The little envelope in front was created with
Envelope Punch Board and the image colored using a Blender Pen to pick up the ink
from the Stampin’ Spots in the Stamp-a-tag Kit.”

Wow! Those were some outstanding projects Linda!

Next up, let’s check out the creative talents of Sylvie Drader. Sylvie is from Kitchener,
Ontario and has been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for 6 years.

“A small bag of chocolate becomes really special with a hand stamped tag. It tells the
person you care. I love to give these to co-workers and neighbors around Christmas.
The stamps and ink are included in the Stamp-a-tag Kit, making it SO easy.”

“Using tags on cards is quite trendy – and why not, it certainly adds interest to this
simple Christmas card.”

“Christmas decorations, why not use them on a tag! The Merry Minis Punch Pack
makes this tag an easy project. The Stamp-a-tag Kit box can also be used as a gift
box… love up-cycling.”

“A wreath is fun to make even on a small scale. This tag is more involved but still comes together pretty quickly because the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack makes it a breeze. Whoever receives this gift will feel very special.”

“You absolutely need bling at Christmas! And when it’s added to a hand stamped tag, it
really makes it pop. Even before it is opened, the gift feels unique.”

Thanks to both of our demonstrators for sharing their talents with us!

Christmas is just days away! Your Christmas shopping is done, the gifts are wrapped and under the tree, and your holiday meals are planned and prepped. Wondering what to do now? Here are some quick and easy thank you cards to make!

These 3-1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Note Cards with Crumb Cake Note Card Envelopes are such a breeze to make—you could even make lots of them at one time! I had some sheets from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack left over from a Christmas card class, so I used the Crumb Cake dots pattern and cut them to 1-1/4″ x 5″. Then I made liners for the Crumb Cake envelopes using the Big Shot and the note card-size Envelope Liners Framelits Die.They were a little short on the bottom, but they did give that added punch of fun on the inside of the envelope!

I took a Gold Foil Sheet and cut it into 1/2” x 3″ strips. Then I chose fresh winter pastel hues— Coastal CabanaCrisp Cantaloupe, and Strawberry Slush Cardstock—and cut them into 1/2″ x 4″ strips. I used my Paper Snips to cut banner tips at one end (or you can use the Hexagon or 1″ Square Punch).

Add your “Thank you” from the Four You Stamp Set (using In Color inks). And for a final touch, use Glue Dots to adhere the In Color Boutique Details buttons in the corresponding color.

The Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape on this card is an optional item. It will be available on January 3 in the occasions catalog. Be sure to add it to your wish list! It is so fun!

Now that I have my thank you cards done, I will go back to completing the list of things that I did NOT get done yet! Have a holly, jolly holiday!
