Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around

My mother is Italian.  And my mother is an artist.  While she doesn't paint anymore, my house is filled with her beautiful paintings.  In 1970, she painted a town in Italy called Torricella Peligna in the Abruzzi region for her father.  


She wanted to send a Christmas Card with a photo of the painting to her Italian cousins.  A year or so ago, my daughter found this Buon Natale stamp for her.

I made this gate fold card for her and we adhered the photo on the inside.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Cheer

I love hot chocolate on a cold winter day.  It's been awhile since I made these little bags.  The base of the card is a white lunch bag, with about an inch trimmed off the top, then folded in half.  The hot chocolate packet tucks inside the open slot on the inside.  The ribbon is adhered under the stamped cardstock layers.  These are great for small gifts for teachers, neighbors, mail carriers, etc.  

This stamp set features a reversible stamp! After you stamp the cup, clean the stamp, take it off the block and flip it over and put it back on the block to stamp the cup with the handle facing the other way.  Pretty neat, huh?  And, there are dies that will cut out both cups as well!  No fussing cutting needed!
