Merry Moose Christmas Banner & Boxes

The Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team has so many amazing creations for you to see!  I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs!  This blog hop will feature creations using one of the following bundles from the 2019 Holiday Catalog:  Gather Together, Holly Jolly Christmas, Snowman Season,  Frosted Foliage, and Christmas Gleaming!

Ever since I spotted that adorable Merry Moose Bundle (item 153015) in the 2019 Holiday Catalog, I just knew I had to pair it with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp (item 147794). I started creating my banner by using the Buffalo Check Stamp along with the Stamparatus (item 146276) to stamp Sahara Sand Classic Ink (item 147117) onto a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock (item 121043). I trimmed the image to size and cut into 3 even pieces, flagging the end with the Banner Triple Punch (item 138292).

I then used Gold Foil Sheets (item 132622) that were scored/folded in the middle to adhere the flagged banners to a 4 ft (merry) and 5 ft (Christmas) piece of Gold 3/8” Metallic Edge Ribbon (item 144146) with Tear & Tape Adhesive (item 138995).

I distressed the edges of the flagged banner pieces using a Stamping Sponge (item 141337) and the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink Pad (item 150711) I then cut 16 pieces of Gold 3/8” Metallic Edge Ribbon to adorn the space between each flagged banner.  I secured them in place with a Mini Glue Dot (item 103683) and a bow of Linen Thread (item 104199).

I used the Lined Alphabet Stamp Set (item 145908) to stamp the “Merry Christmas” in Versamark Ink (item 102283) onto Gold Foil Sheet pieces. I I then covered with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109130) and set with a Heat Tool (item 129053). I snipped them out with Paper Snips (item 103579) and adhered them to the flagged banner pieces with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 144108).

The Gold Foil Sheets, Sahara Sand Cardstock and Ink, as well as the Simply Scored Scoring Tool (item 122334), were used to create the rosettes that enhanced the ends of the banner.   A ½” Circle Punch (item 138299) created the Gold Foil circle that covers the center of the rosette.  The moose were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (item 132708) and Delicata Golden Glitz Ink, then cropped with the coordinating Moose Punch (item 150652).  The tree was also stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then was snipped with Paper Snips. A double bow of Linen Thread was added to the tree for a final touch.

My trio of Gold Mini Pizza Boxes (item 152068) were all given a rustic makeover by adding a bit of distressing in three different ways, each way is explained below. Each Mini Pizza Box was adorned with a Gold Foil tag created with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and Detailed Trio Punch (corner rounder).  The moose, sentiments, and trees were all stamped and created using the same steps as those used to create the rosettes (above).  All tags were topped with a piece of Gold 3/8” Metallic Edge Ribbon and a bow of Linen Thread.

My 1st Gold Mini Pizza Box was distressed with a sand block to remove the glossy finish.  It then paired well with bits of Gold Foil Sheets and a square of Sahara Sand Buffalo Check.  The finishing touches were added via Gold Metallic Pearls (item 146282).

My 2nd Gold Mini Pizza Box was again distressed with a sand block to remove the glossy finish.  I then stamped it with the Buffalo Check Background stamp using Versamark Ink and setting the Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder with a Heat Tool.  The moose was attached to a rosette created from a Gold Foil Sheet.

My 3rd Gold Mini Pizza Box was distressed by using a Stamping Sponge to liberally add Delicata Celestial Copper Ink (item 150707) and Soft Suede Ink (item 147115) to it. I then covered it completely with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it with a Heat Tool, giving it a brassy finish. 

Which do you love the most? I hope I have inspired you to create yourself some country-themed/rustic Christmas Décor with phenomenal Stampin’ Up! Products.

Large outlined maple leaves: 

Stamp the leaves in Jet Black Stazōn Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. 

Set out three Clear Block B (or one large size) and gently sprinkle Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight in separate areas.  One color at a time, grab a small amount with an Aqua Painter and add the color to the leaf. Re-apply as needed until you obtain the desired effect. 

Crop with the coordinating Gathered Leaves Die and a die-cutting and embossing machine. 

Small Leaves:

Spray a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with water from a Stampin’ Spritzer. Gently sprinkle Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight onto the wet cardstock.  Spritz again until you obtain the desired effect.  Set aside to dry or set with a Heat Tool. 

Crop with the dual purpose dies (they emboss and cut), strategically laying them onto the cardstock to grab a mix of colors.

Both my scrapbook page and my gather together greeting card use Very Vanilla Cardstock (my card looks like Whisper White in the photo below…sorry, it is hard to photograph and edit without changing the beautiful colors of the leaves). 

I love how the Pigment Sprinkles on the leaves look so much like the leaves that are changing in the fall.   It was so easy to do!  Just be cautious with the sprinkles, as they are very rich in color and hard to contain in one place. 🙂

Gold Mini Pizza Boxes!  The PERFECT pairing to the Christmastime is Here Suite! 

The Gold Mini Pizza Boxes were a tad brighter than I wanted them to be, so I distressed it with a sanding block.  I absolutely LOVE the result!  It is almost a matte finish and it pairs well with the Gold Foil Sheets. 

I wrapped the outside of the Gold Mini Pizza Box with the gorgeous Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon, securing it with Mini Glue Dots and a bow. 

The largest of the Rose Dies cuts out both the stamped image and the image from the Christmas Is Here Designer Series Paper.  The Stampin’ Up! colors in the Christmastime is Here Suite are: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade & Gold Foil! 

Many of the images from the Designer Series Paper are fussy cut friendly. I fussy cut several pieces for my five 3×3 cards shown below. 

Make sure you have some Gold Foil Sheets and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on hand!  I used them for the sentiments and accent pieces on both the Gold Mini Pizza Box decor and the 3×3 cards.  

The Gold Glitter Enamel Dots were added to each piece as the final touch!

YES!  These babies are FOOD SAFE!

Come Sail Away Suite by Stampin' Up! _ Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!(1)

The gift bag above was created as follows:

1) Rub a piece of Vellum Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy.  This removes the static from the cardstock and will ensure the Stampin’ Emboss Powder only sticks to the stamped areas.

2) Use the Stamparatus to stamp the flowers in Versamark Ink (qty 6) onto the Vellum Cardstock.  Cover with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. Crop with the coordinating Perennial Flower Punch. 

3) Use Stampin’ Blends (Premium Alcohol Markers) to color the backside of the cropped flowers.  I used the Light & Dark of the Night of Navy, Petal Pink, & Pineapple Punch.  The alcohol dries quickly on Vellum and lightens quite a bit.  I recommend several layers to obtain a nice depth of color.  Connect two sets of petals together with a Copper Metallic Brad.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  NOTE:  I doubled up the dimensionals on the center flower to make it pop a bit higher than the other two. 

4) Rub a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the sentiments (“for you” – Itty Bitty Greetings) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Trim the center sentiment to 1/2 x 2 1/4.  Trim the “for you” to 3/4 x 2.  Flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Fold and add to the top of the Copper Dotted Treat Bag with a Mini Library Clip.  Adhere the center sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A little background on Stampin’ Up!’s Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper:

What’s the next best thing to having one of Claude Monet’s paintings hanging in your home? Stampin’ Up!’s Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper! One of Stampin’ Up!’s product designers, Julie Alusa, went to New York and was so inspired by Monet’s works of art, she decided to paint her own masterpiece. In her own words: “While I was admiring Monet’s massive water lily paintings at the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan, I was inspired to do a Monet-esque page in the Designer Series Paper of impressionistic water lilies.” So now you can have a little taste of Monet with this beautiful Designer Series Paper. Hand-painted and gorgeous, this paper will go great with any project—even if it’s just for yourself! 

The card below was created using the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  Isn’t is gorgeous?  It definitely takes the creation up a notch and the work is done for you!  Don’t have it in your DSP stash?  What are you waiting for?
