Curvy Keepsake Box-VIDEO

This week I'm sharing not one, two or three but FOUR fun and cute treat boxes you can use for fun gifts or stocking stuffers. For my fourth and final box I'm sharing this super cute box that is made with the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Die.  If you need a bunch of boxes this is the one to go for.  This box is soooo quick to make you can make a bunch in no time.  This box would also make a great Advent or Christmas Countdown.

I love this box and have used it a ton.  If you want more ideas of what you can do with this box check out all the other amazing projects I've made with the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box here.  I LOVE this die!!  To decorate this box I kept it simple with stamping. I used stamps from the Peace and Joy set.  The tags are die cut with the coordinating tags in the dies.  I stamped my greeting with a greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas Greetings.  You can check out the video for all the tips and tricks on this box, including one for how to tie the tags on and still open the box without untying the tags!  I have a full supply list below, you can shop for all these products in my Online Store.

Christmas Gleaming Window Box-VIDEO

This week I'm sharing not one, two or three but FOUR fun and cute treat boxes you can use for fun gifts or stocking stuffers.  This box once again features those super cute Reese's Nutcrackers.  I wanted them to be the star of this box so I added a window in the front of the box.  I kept the box festive with some stamping from the Christmas Gleaming set.  This is a returning favorite from last year.  I used it a ton last year!!  The block Christmas greeting is one of my favorites!  

stampin' up, christmas gleaming

I kept my box with pretty untraditional Christmas colors.  I used Just Jade for the box and colored my image with Just Jade and Magenta Madness.  Even with those fun colors this box is still super fun and festive!  

stampin up, christmas gleaming

This is a quick box to make and if decide to leave off the window in the front it's even quicker!  This is a fun and quick treat box and who wouldn't love this box of treats!!!!  For the window I used the Stitched Nested Label dies to cut my window in the front of my box.  I used the 4th smallest.  If you don't have these dies you can use any shape that fits in the top area.  Cut your window Sheet to 3 3/8" x 1 5/8".

Nutcracker Shadow Box-VIDEO

This week I'm sharing not one, two or three but FOUR fun and cute treat boxes you can use for fun gifts or stocking stuffers.  Today's might be my favorite!!!!  It's not just because it took me 3 tries to get it right!  First of all the outside is soooo cute!!!  I LOVE the Tree Angle set and I don't think I've used it enough this year!  I had to pull it out for this box.  

stampin' up, tree angle

Everything is decorated on and around the belly band.  I love adding belly bands to gift boxes rather than tying them or adhering them another way because then it's easy to get to the treat without taking your box apart.  I stamped and die cut all my trees using the coordinating Stitched Triangle Dies,  I finished the belly band with some ribbon, check out the new Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim!  Coming in the next mini!!  I also tied some Linen Thread around for added texture.  Plus I love the double ribbon look!  

stampin' up, tree angle

When you slide the belly band off you have a shadow box filled with some Reese's Nutcrackers!  OMGEEEE!!!!  I'm completely obsessed with these nutcrackers! They are soooooo cute and soooo yummy!!!!  But seriously how cute are they!!!!?!?!

stampin up, tree angle

Make sure you check out the video for how to make this shadow box.  The belly band for the box is 4 1/4" x 9".  While this box is soooooo much fun to get I'm not sure I would make a ton of these to give out.  Save these for your really special friends and family.  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for all of these products in my Online Store.

Moose Kisses Box-VIDEO

This week I'm sharing not one, two or three but FOUR fun and cute treat boxes you can use for fun gifts or stocking stuffers.  Today's is soooo cute!  I love the Merry Moose set and had to use it for this box.  The box is a triangle and holds 5 Hershey Kisses.  It's so easy to make to so you could easily make a ton of these!!!  

stampin up, merry moose

For the outside of my box I made a belly band with the Toile Tidings DSP.  Then I used my Merry Moose bundle to stamp and punch a moose.  I added a fun Christmas hat on his head to make him more festive.  You could also add the scarf which would be really cute!!  

stampin up, merry moose

I attached the moose to a label I punched with the Label Me Lovely Punch.  I added a greeting a bow with some Braided Linen Trim.  

stampin up, merry moose

In my box I have the cherry kisses.  I think they only sell them around Christmas.  They're good you guys!  But as always ANY Hershey Kisses will fit in this box.  After Christmas this is a great box to pull out when you need a treat box idea!  


The belly band for the box is 5" x 4 1/2".  Check out the video for all the details on putting this box together.  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for all of these products in my Online Store today!

Happy Friday!  I can't believe we're already at the end of November!  Next week is Thanksgiving and both kids are off school all week so I'll be taking next week off as well.  But not to worry I have 4 incredible projects to share next week.  All with videos.  It's a stocking stuffer gift extravaganza!

For today though I have 3 fun cards to share with a fun sneak peek!  Earlier this month Demonstrators had the opportunity to attend Stampin' Up! On Stage at home.  This year our convention had to be virtual for obvious reasons.  At any Stampin' Up! event there is always stamping! Since we were doing it virtually we had the opportunity to purchase some products in advance to use for our Make and Takes. 

stampin up, dragonfly garden

I made my mine a little differently then they wanted us to but I love them!  This collection of products is in the Dandy Garden Suite in the upcoming Mini catalog, along with even more products.  The Dragonfly Garden Bundle includes the stamp set and Dragonfly Punch!  Yay!!  You know I love a good punch!

The DSP in this collection is full of bold regal colors.  The patterns are so much fun too!  If you love these products look for them coming on January 5 in the January-June Mini Catalog.  January is a long way away so if you just can't wait to get these products consider joining my team.  Demonstrators can preorder these and more from the mini catalog starting on December 1, which is in just 10 days!  You can join and get a discount on your orders and get brand new stuff as well!!!  It's a win win win!!!  Join  here!  I don't have a supply list for you because most of these products aren't available for purchase yet.  Don't forget to check my blog next week for amazing gift giving ideas!

Merry and Bright-VIDEO

I have the most perfect and festive Christmas Card to share today.  I shared this card yesterday in my weekly Facebook Live.  Follow me on Facebook to never miss a live video @Ruth's Stamping Corner. The Peace and Joy Bundle was one of the very first bundles I got out of the Mini Catalog.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bundle.  This bundle is a staple in your Christmas crafting stash.  It's the perfect set, fun simple images paired with bold greetings.  The dies are pretty amazing!!!  

stampin up, peace and joy

The dies contain not only the script writing of the word but also the die to cut out the stamped word and a larger piece to matt it all on perfectly.  There's three words featured in the dies, 'bright' 'peace' and 'joy'.  For my card I only used the two outline dies.  I stamped my 'bright' and die cut it.  I cut the largest shadow piece from vellum.  I paired this bundle with the amazing Heartwarming Hugs DSP and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  All the accents stamped on the label are from the set.  The holly's are accented with Red Rhinestones for some shine!  The card is finished with some White Seam Binding that I colored with my Real Red Stampin' Blends.  Check out the video below for all the details.  

stampin up, peace and joy

Finally I wanted to share the same card but instead of stamping 'bright' I used the detailed die cut in the dies out of Real Red Cardstock.  It's the same exact card otherwise.  I love them both but I think I love the stamped version slightly more, the greeting is more bold and stands out more.  Both are amazing though!  PRO TIP! If you choose to make this card with the die cut instead of the stamped version, save yourself tons of trouble and use the Adhesive Sheets on your cardstock BEFORE you die cut.  Then your word is simply a sticker and sooooo easy to adhere!  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for all these supplies in my Online Store.

Team Appreciation Event

Last weekend I held a team appreciation event via Zoom.  It was so much fun!  I loved seeing my team!  For this event I either dropped off on their porches (local) or mailed them kits for the event.  These kits included supplies for two 3-D items and 6 cards.  Then we made them together during the event.  

stampin up, prized peony

The event focused on gratitude.  So timely for right now.  They made two each of the 3 cards designed.  Part of their kit was just some 6"x12" DSP, we had to trim it all down during the event.  

stampin' up, prized peony,

They had to provide the stamps and ink.  But they were given a list of supplies to make sure to have on hand during the event.  

stampin' up, prized peony
I love all the cards!  These cards would be so fun to make so many of our DSP's it's easy to customize them!  
 
The first of their 3-D projects was a repurposed stamp case.  This is our larger case, unfortunately Stampin' Up! announced that they wouldn't sell these any longer.  I'm so sad about that.  I love these cases for so many reasons!  I use them all over my craft room.  I'm hoping SU will change their mind and continue to sell them.  They are perfect for holding cards.  Which is what this box was designed for.  It will hold the cards perfectly! 

stampin' up, prized peony

Finally the last thing that we made was a gratitude journal.  Really this could be any kind of notebook.  Since we were focused on gratitude I made it a gratitude journal.  

stampin up, prized peony

Isn't it gorgeous! Since this was an event designed for my team. I'm not listing any measurements, there is a supply list below.  My team gets exclusive perks for being on my team, appreciation events like this are just one of them.  If you're considering joining SU, I'd love to welcome you to my team.  We have so much fun!  To join my team is easy, sign up here.  You get to choose $125 in product for only $99 AND you get free shipping!  Other perks demonstrators get are seeing and purchasing new products in advance, we'll get to preorder from the upcoming Mini and Sale-a-Bration catalogs in December!  Demonstrators also get a discount on their orders. There is no obligation to buy or sell.  You can simply purchase for yourself at a discount!  If you decide later it's not for you there's no penalties you  go back to being a customer.  I hope you'll consider joining my team!  Please contact me if you have questions.

Pampered Pets Zoom

I have the cutest card to share today!!  I'm pretty excited about this one!  I just love all the pets from the Playful Pets DSP.  They're all super fun.  I wanted to use a bunch of them on a card together and was brainstorming how to do that, then it hit me! What if all these pets were on a zoom call?!  SOOOOO CUTE!!  The card came out just as cute as I imagined.  I love all the different personalities in all the different animals!
stampin' up, playful pets

To get 6 'screens' on my card I had to make it a little larger than a normal card.  The finished size of this card measures 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". It will fit perfectly in a 5" x 7" envelope.  All the animals were fussy cut.  I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to make the screens.  The greeting was my only problem area.  I couldn't find the exact greeting I needed.  So in the end I just printed one off my computer.  Easy peasy!  

stampin' up, playful pets

I added lots of hearts from the Dog Punch and covered the ones on the front of the card with Shimmery Crystal Effects.  The insides says 'Consider this a virtual hug' and you can prop up the card like a laptop or tablet.  So cute and fun!!!  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for all the supplies in my Online Store.

Coming Home CASED Layout

Yesterday I shared the Merry Moose card that I made in Facebook Live on Wednesday.  I mentioned that I also had a card featuring the Coming Home Bundle to share as well.  I used the same layout from the Merry Moose card.  I think if you find a layout you love, stick with it. If you ever get into a rut stamping or you have stampers block find a sketch or layout that you like and go with it.  Once you start crafting you should come out of your stampers block.  

stampin up, coming home

For the most part this card is very straight forward.  I used the Trimming The Town DSP from the suite, so it all coordinates well.  Even the greeting is from the DSP.  I colored my car and tree with Stampin' Blends.  I love the shading on these, and that card is sooo much fun to color!!!!  I have a full supply list below, you can shop for all of these products in my Online Store.
