DIY Quick Stamped Christmas Card

Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with Rubberstamps.com.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

Create your own holiday cards in a flash with these easy DIY quick stamped Christmas cards!

I am a huge procrastinator when it comes to all things holiday. I usually wait until the last minute for all of my shopping, which every year I swear I’m not going to do! However, with so much going on the time flies by and I find myself buying gifts the week before! Eek!

I also wait until the last minute to send out my holiday cards. I wait and wait and in the past I have ended up not sending out anything because the cards will arrive after Christmas, which I don’t want! I decided this year was going to be different. Instead of doing the whole picture card idea, I wanted to make my own. I didn’t want the cards to be too elaborate since I knew my time was limited. While searching through all of the holiday stamps at Rubberstamps.com, I came across a Christmas tree stamps and “Merry Christmas” stamps. To avoid multiple steps, I added 3 small trees and the sentiment to one acrylic block. Instead of doing green, red and gold, I swapped out the green for pink for a brighter, trendy look.

Since this card was so easy and quick to make (even with the extra embellishments!) I’m actually done with all of my holiday cards, which is a miracle! Check out the video below to see how you can make your own DIY quick stamped Christmas card!

Supplies:

Step 1: Cut your paper in half.

Step 2: Add a score line at 4.25″ then fold it in half.

Step 3: Add the “Merry Christmas” stamp to the bottom of the acrylic block. Then, add the three trees on top.

Step 4: Ink the stamps. Make sure you don’t get ink on the other stamps. If you do, simply take a baby wipe and wipe it clean.

Step 5: Place the stamp on the center of the card and press down.

Step 6: Cut a piece of baker’s twin 16″ long and tie it on the top left side of the card. Trim the ends.

Step 7: Add glue dots to the back of 3 sequins and adhere them to the card.

Now all you need to do is address your envelopes! You could also add some stamped trees to your envelopes for some festive flair!

DIY Stay Sweet Treat Bags

When it comes to candy, I have a bit of a problem.  I’m obsessed with all things sweet and sugary!  I’ve never met a piece of candy I don’t like.  Since I’m obsessed with all candy, you better believe I was super pumped to find out there’s a day dedicated to celebrating candy in all of it’s forms.  National Candy Day falls 4 days after Halloween, which means the candy celebrations continues on! Yippee!

DIY Snowflake Stamped Gift Wrap

Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with Rubberstamps.com.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

It’s never to soon to get into the holiday spirit, especially if you’re a crafter.  Since the holiday season can get super hectic, getting a head start on all of your holiday crafting is a good idea (if you lucky enough to actually carve out time from your busy day!).  So, this project is coming attcha super early so you start now and have plenty of time to finish it before the holiday season is in full swing.

If you’re looking for a fun alternative to regular store-bought holiday gift wrap, then this project is for you.  My DIY snowflake stamped gift wrap is an easy project to get you through holiday gift-giving.  Since all you’re doing is stamping a festive design on kraft paper, it’s a fun activity to get your kiddos involved with.   You could tape down a few rolls of paper on your table and arm your children with a stamp and some ink.  Just think, you could be done with your festive gift wrap in a day!

Check out the full video tutorial below to see how you can make your own DIY snowflake stamped gift wrap for the holidays!

Supplies:

Step 1: Unroll your paper and secure the end with a piece of washi tape.

Step 2: Remove the cling stamp from the liner and place it on the acrylic block.

Step 3: Add ink all over the stamp.

Step 4: Stamp the snowflake on the paper, pressing down and then lifting straight up.  Continue stamping all over the paper, spacing out your snowflake design.

Step 5:  Add ink to the smaller snowflake stamp and stamp near the larger snowflake.

Step 5: Place a piece of paper under the gift wrap so some of it is poking out.  Begin stamping snowflakes over the edge.  Continue this down the top and bottom of the gift wrap.

Step 6: Undo the tape and unroll more paper until you have your desired length.  Once you do, use paper’s tape to secure.

Step 7: Repeat above steps to stamp snowflakes all over your paper.

Since this project doesn’t take a ton of time to do, you can start now so all of your gifts under the tree match and have a rustic, yet festive vibe.  Enjoy!

DIY State Love Wine Charms

Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with Rubberstamps.com.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

I love hosting parties, but hate all of the extra cups that collect.  Why is it that people can never manage to keep track of their water bottles, cups, and wine glasses?!  It never fails that at the end of the night every room in my house becomes a cup/glass graveyard!

DIY You are my Sunshine Sign

Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with CraftCuts.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

If you’re looking to brighten up your room (and your day!), then this DIY custom “You are my sunshine” sign is for you!

I love adding colorful touches to rooms in my house.  Having pops of color brings so much joy and happiness to a room, even if it’s only a few décor items scattered alongside other neutral colors.  I decided to blend cheery colors together with an uplifting quote using custom letters and a circular wooden shape from CraftCuts!  Check out the tutorial below to see how you can add a little sunshine to any room in your home!

Supplies:

Step 1: Add hot glue to the 10” dowel rods and glue them around the circle, leaving space for the 4” dowels.

Step 2:  Add a coat of yellow spray paint to the circle and dowel rods.

Step 3:  Paint all of the 4” sized dowels with the orange acrylic paint.

Step 4:  When the paint is dry, hot glue the orange dowels rods in between all of the yellow dowels on the circle piece.

Step 5: Cut a long piece of painter’s tape and add the letters for you “you are my” to the top.  This will help keep the letters from shifting around.  Add a coat of white paint to the top.  Add a second coat of paint if needed.

Step 6: Add a coat of white acrylic paint to the word “sunshine”.  Add a second coat if needed.

Step 7:  Once the words are dry, figure out the placement for the quote on your circle.  Next add painter’s tape under “you are my”.  This will help get the letters straight. 

Step 8: Add multi-grip glue to the back of the letters and word to secure them to the wooden shape. 

Step 9: Add Multi-Grip to the back of “sunshine” and add it underneath “you are my”.

Step 8:  Cut a piece of twine 2 inches long, fold it in half, add a drop of glue to the top back of the circle, please the loose ends of the twine on top, and add another drop of glue on top of the bottom of the twine.

Add your DIY custom you are my sunshine sign to any room in your home for an instant pick-me-up!  It would also look great on a gallery wall, or as outdoor décor (as long as it has been properly sealed with a clear protectant!).

DIY Pineapple Stamped Frame

Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with Rubberstamps.com.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

I always find it fascinating to see what objects will be trending when it comes to party decor, crafts, and fashion. I often wonder how trends such as llamas and unicorns become a “thing”. Pretty much anywhere you look right now you can find a unicorn or llama either as a party ballon, greeting card, or even a blanket! They’re everywhere you look!

One food object that is trending right now is the pineapple. This has been trending for quite some time and I have to admit, I was an early adopter of this trend. Not only do I like the playful look of a pineapple, but I also like the meaning behind it. Pineapples are considered an expression of “welcome”. Because of this, I love the idea of incorporating pineapples in my home and what better way than with a DIY pineapple stamped frame!

Rubberstamps.com had the cutest little pineapple for my frame. I grabbed the 1″x2.5″, which was the perfect size to stamp all over my frame. When I saw the 5 color ink pad I thought it would create create such a cool look with no effort, which I’m all about! Check out the full video tutorial below to see how you can create your own DIY Pineapple Stamped Frame!

Supplies:

If you’re not feeling pineapples, check out Rubberstamps.com’s other stamps and use the same technique to create your own customized frame!

DIY Stamped Luggage Tag

Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with Rubberstamps.com.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

Going on a trip is always something I look forward to. Whether it’s a quick road trip or a plane ride to another state or country, I always welcome the change of scenery. When I fly, I’m always a little worried that my luggage is going to get lost or taken by someone else. Instead of panicking about someone mistaking my luggage as their own, I’ve created a fun DIY stamped luggage tag that is not like the rest!

My luggage tag is not the standard rectangle shape and style. In order to create a luggage tag that stands out, I made this one round with a super cute compass stamp from Rubberstamps.com. There are other travel stamps to choose from, but my favorite is the compass design. It’s what made me decide to go with a circle shape for my luggage tag instead of the traditional rectangle shape! Check out the video tutorial below to see how you can make your own DIY stamped luggage tag so you too can travel in style!

Supplies:

  • Rubberstamps.com Compass Stamp (2×2)
  • Stamp Ink
  • Patterned Scrapbook Paper
  • White Cardstock
  • Printer (to print out your name and address)
  • Tag Template
  • Iron-on Vinyl (you could also swap this out and use a laminator and laminating pouch)
  • Parachute Cord (or any cord option of your choice)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • 1/4 Inch Hole Punch

After your done making your DIY travel luggage tag, just tie it onto to your luggage and enjoy! Happy travels!

DIY Stamped and Stitched Flower Card


Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with Rubberstamps.com.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

With the digital world taking over most areas of our lives, it can be hard to go back to the “basics”. We are a society of instant gratification seekers. Technology is great and can help us multi-task our way through the day, but when it comes to card-giving, in my opinion, the old fashion way is much better than sending an e-card.
