Pocket for a Gift Certificate


I remade a project from last month to create a pocket for my Buckeye Inklings gift certificates.  The original project had a slot for a gift card (photo below, click here for gift card post).


That slot, cut with a stem from the Everyday Jars framelit collection, is too short for my gift certificates, so I changed the insert on this project to create a pocket.


The pocket could also hold cash or a gift card.

The Basic Black cardstock measures 4 1/4″ x 6 1/2″.  The Whisper White pocket piece measures 4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 6 1/4″.

Stampin’ Up! does not offer Gift Certificates or Gift Cards.  Individual Demonstrators do often offer them, and those certificates need to be redeemed through the issuing Demonstrator.  Please check with your recipient’s Demonstrator if you would like to purchase a Gift Certificate.

If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, or if I am your Demonstrator 🙂 please contact me at stampyourworld@gmail.com if you would like to purchase a Gift Certificate.  Through the holiday season, I am providing Gift Certificates in the pocket card shown in this post.  I will also include a Grinch Gift Card Holder.  I can mail these items to you, or directly to your recipient.


Have a great day!


Cheerful Tags


I have used the Cheerful Tags Framelits with the “Tin of Tags” stamp set from the Holiday Catalog to make this gift tag for a wine bottle.  The framelit collection can be purchased in a bundle with “Here’s to Cheers”, another coordinating set.

This framelit collection has a pair of tag shapes and several accent pieces which can be combined in many ways.  I am using the tag that has a hole for a bottle neck.  The tag created by this die also has slots, making it so easy to add a twist of color with ribbon. dsc_0239w

That gorgeous lacy background piece that I have cut from Gold Foil is also made with a framelit in this collection.  And good news…there will be another stamp set that coordinates with these framelits in the upcoming Occasions Catalog.  Here’s a look at the pieces in the Cheerful Tags collection:


Have a great Monday!


Time of Year


I love to pair a big greeting with a designer paper background.  Throw in a few accents, and you really can’t do any more because, quite frankly, you are out of space!  The big greeting and pretty background do all of the work for you.

I particularly like this big greeting from “Time of Year” because you can easily change the sentiment to suit different occasions.  The Presents & Pinecones designer paper is perfect for a seasonal birthday card, but of course, it makes a lovely Christmas card too.


Are you noticing how sharp the black ink looks?  I used Archival Black on this card – I think it really makes a difference when the stamped image has thick lines or solid areas.

The designer paper measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The Whisper White panel measures 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and the Cherry Cobbler mat is 3 7/16″  x 4 11/16″.  I apologize for the sixteenths!  Sometimes adding 1/4″ is too much and 1/8″ is too little…at least in my mind.


Here’s another great thing – the metallic thread in red and green!  These two colors come together in a combo pack of two spools, and they are discounted now as part of our year-end closeout sale.  Many of our current Holiday Catalog items are on sale now, but only while supplies last.  Click here to check out all of the deals in the store.


“Time of Year” also includes some little accent stamps – I used one on the inside along with a coordinating strip of Presents & Pinecones paper.  “Time of Year” is a Host set, available for purchase with Stampin’ Rewards on orders over $150.

Thanks for stopping!  Have a great weekend!



Hot Cocoa Pouch


This sweet little favor has been popular this fall – in classes and at my craft show.  This is a pouch that holds a hot cocoa packet, and there is a chocolate-dipped peppermint stick tied to the outside.

This isn’t a new design, and it isn’t my original.  I am not sure who to credit, I have seen so many versions over the years.  I just had to make it with this year’s Candy Cane Lane Suite of products – they are just perfect for this project!

Directions are in the video.  Have a great day!


<3 Ohio State <3

 My thoughts and prayers are with students, staff, responders, and victims at Ohio State after yesterday’s terrifying attack.  I am thankful that none of our family and friends were directly involved.  However, beyond the immediate injury and effects, this does affect us all.  Yet another space that should be a safe haven was changed, and we just wish the world could be a better place for our kids.


I was playing around with new product this past weekend, and I had made these two cards for my two favorite Buckeyes.  The cards were supposed to be a little pick-me-up as my girls head into finals, and now finals don’t seem as important (but if my girls are reading this, they better still be studying like crazy!!)  🙂


Here’s another sample that shows off the cool heart border that is part of a new set of framelits that will be available January 4.  The little envelope and note card are made with the same framelit collection.  It is called “Love Notes”, and it has a coordinating stamp set, “Sealed with Love”.

So, as the result of current events, a little sneak peek for you today…and much love to our family and friends at Ohio State!  Be strong and be safe!


Cookie Cutter Eskimo


We are working ahead tonight in Card Ministry.  We will make this cute little Eskimo card to send in January.

I stamped the Eskimo from “Cookie Cutter Christmas” on watercolor paper with Archival Black.  I then watercolored the Mint Macaron snowsuit and Blushing Bride cheeks with my aquapainter, picking up ink from drops placed in my stamp pad lids.  I used my Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Write Marker for the mittens and boots.  There is also Wink of Stella on the fur trim.

Today is the last day of our Online Extravaganza, with special deals again today.  I will repost the list here.  If you are local, and you would like to add something to the order I will place today, please contact me by 5pm.  Click here to go to the online store.

Happy Shopping!

Fresh Cookies


I have seen a handful of these cute cookie sheets on Pinterest – I don’t know who to credit with the idea.  Since “Cookie Cutter Christmas” has been a favorite of mine this season, I had to make one too.

My cookie sheet started as a 2″ x 5″ piece of Silver Foil.  I punched each end with the Scallop Tag Topper punch, and then I scored each end at 3/4″ and 7/8″.  I punched a bite out of one of the gingerbread men with the retired 7/8″ scallop circle punch, but you could also use the new Layering Circles framelits.

And of course, love that new stitched edge created on the greeting by the Stitched Shapes framelits!  Demand for these new framelits has been higher than anticipated, and they are currently unavailable.  I will let you know when they are back in stock.

Have a great day!


Christmas Pines


I love this technique that our CEO Sara Douglass shared with us at our convention earlier this month.  The greeting is stamped with two colors, and the lower portion of it is heat embossed.  I used Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Copper Embossing Powder on the bold Noel greeting from “Christmas Pines”.


Photographing shiny things, like foil and embossing, is not my strong suit, but I hope you can get an idea of how showy this is!

Here’s a quick little video that shows the procedure to ink the stamp to create this effect..

Don’t forget that today is the start of our week-long Online Extravagana, with special deals today and next Monday, November 28.  Here is a complete listing of the sale.  Click here to go to the store.
