My kitchen renovation has been completed, although I’m still awaiting delivery of light fixtures, table and chairs, but it is beautiful as is! I’m still unpacking boxes and getting things organized and into the new cabinets. I hope to wind this down over the weekend so that I can finally devote my attention to working on new projects with everything I received in my pre-order. I will be posting on a more regular basis again beginning the week of January 6th.
Today I’m sharing another card I made using the Sip Sip Hooray stamp set and coordinating Sip and Celebrate dies. This one uses the wine glass image so I thought what better colors to use than Merry Merlot and Rococo Rose!
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.
Cut piece of Merry Merlot cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Use the bubble die in the Sip & Celebrate die set to make the bubble border at the top and bottom of the piece. Adhere to card base.
Cut piece of Rococo Rose cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 2 3/4″ and piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 2 1/2″.
Stamp two of the wine glass images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the fill images with Rococo Rose ink.
To make the leaves, stamp two images with Mint Macaron ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die.
Stamp Sip Sip greeting on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Cut circle with one of the smaller dies in the Layering Circles die set. Cut scalloped circle from scrap piece of Merry Merlot and adhere to greeting.
Adhere piece with wine glasses to the piece of Rococo Rose and adhere to center of Merry Merlot mat. Adhere leaves to tops of wine glasses. Adhere greeting and embellish it with a Cherry Cobbler rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack.
For the inside of the card stamp one image of the wine glass and stamp the fill image with Rococo Rose ink. I chose not to stamp a greeting so that I could use the card for any special occasion that pops up where I need to send a card out quickly.
This stamp set and dies will be retiring from the 2019 Holiday Catalog so if you would like to purchase the items individually or as a bundle now is the time, whiles supplies last. Click here to go to my online store.
Hello and welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for December! I’m part of a group of talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world that participate in Kylie’s program for building our businesses. Today’s card features the fun Sip Sip Hooray and Cheers to That stamp sets. I always gravitate to florals but when I first saw these sets in the holiday catalog they called out to me because the images and greetings can be used for so many different occasions. We made four cards using these sets in my stamping club this month and here is one of the projects we made.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.
Cut piece of Silver Foil Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card base. Using the silver and white side of the papers in the Feels Like Frost designer series papers, cut piece at 3 3/4″ x 5″. I used the one with the stripes.
Cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2″. Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3″ x 4 1/4″.
Stamp “Raise Your Glass” greeting with Memento black ink at top of Whisper White piece. On scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp the Champagne glass in black ink and then stamp the fill image with Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink. Cut glass out with the coordinating die from the Sip and Celebrate Dies. Stamp the “To the New Year” greeting on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut with the thinnest die in the Stitched Rectangles die set.
Adhere the stamped Whisper White piece to the Basic Black mat. Adhere glass with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the stitched rectangle piece to glass stem with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stamp bubbles with the Silvery Shimmer ink around both sides of the glass.
For the inside of the card cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Use the bubbles die from the Sip and Celebrate Dies to create a border at the bottom of the piece and then adhere to card.

Today I’m featuring a gift card holder made with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. I got the idea for this card from a Halloween card posted by Jackie Bolhuis on her Klompen Stampers blog. I loved how easy it was to put together, while at the same time, being such a great way to showcase our beautiful papers.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base: Cut piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 1 1/2″ and 5 1/2″. Fold along score lines with bone folder.
Cut one piece of DSP at 3 3/4″ x 4″ for front of card and adhere. Cut two pieces at 1 1/4″ x 4″ for inside of card. Adhere one piece at right edge of card the other piece on the folded flap.
Cut piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 3 3/4″ x 4″ and stamp greeting with Pretty Peacock ink. I used one of the greetings from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set. Adhere to inside of card, close to fold line, so that it does not show when the front of the card is folded.
Using the 1″ circle punch, position it in the center of the inside folded flap and cut a half-circle. This will make it easy to slide the gift card in and out. Run a thin line of liquid glue along short sides of the flap and adhere.
Tie piece of Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon around front of card, making a knot.
For the little tag on the front of the card, stamp greeting with Pretty Peacock ink on small scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock. I used the “Be Merry” stamp from the Tidings All Around set. Cut out using the tag die in the Ornate Frames die set. Thread piece of Linen Thread through the tag and tie to ribbon with a knot.

Hello! Today is my first day back to blogging after being absent for almost two weeks. In addition to preparing for and running my holiday classes I am going through a total kitchen renovation from top to bottom and had to clear out the contents of all the cabinets at the same time. It’s taken me a while to play catch up but I’m finally back on track. Demolition began on November 18th and the project is scheduled to be completed a few days before Christmas – quite an extravagant present to me!! My entire house is upside down – boxes everywhere, refrigerator, kitchen table, microwave all in my dining room, with other stuff scattered about in the basement and my guest room. I normally photograph my projects in my dining room because that is where I get the best light, so I’ve had to switch to my craft room and the light fixture in that room produces a terrible glare from all angles, so it has been challenging. I apologize for the quality of photos that will appear in my blog posts in the next few weeks. It’s all worth the trouble because I”m going to have a beautiful kitchen in the end! I will be sure to post before and after pictures later this month.
Now onto today’s project, a treat box featuring products from the Wrapped in Plaid Suite in the Holiday Catalog. The Gold Mini Pizza Boxes are the perfect touch for some holiday glitz.
Here’s how I made the project.
Fold on the scored lines to create the box.
Cut piece of Night of Navy cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″and adhere to box lid. Cut piece of Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Desgner Series Paper at 3″ x 3″ and adhere to Night of Navy square.
Stamp greeting from Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink on scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Die cut using the 2nd smallest of the longer dies from the Stitched Rectangles die set. Adhere to the DSP square.
Select two pieces of DSP using the other side of the plaids. Punch out two trees with the Pine Tree Punch. Punch a hole at the top of each tree with a 1/8″ hole puncher.
Tie piece of ribbon around box, leaving it loose enough so that it will slide on and off easily. The ribbon I used is retired but I really liked how it looked. You can use the Shaded Spruce Gold ribbon that is part of the suite or any ribbon of your choice.
Cut piece of linen thread and slide it through the holes in the tops of the trees and tie around the ribbon bow. Trim ends.
Easy peasy for an elegant little gift box!
