Pop Up Gift Card Holders

Julie Salva taught me how to make this fun pop up gift card holder. It can be used for any occasion by switching out the Designer Series Paper. Add frills or leave it plain. Works for anyone, any age! 

Here is how it looks when you open it up. Gift cards (and the holders they come on, if you wish) fit right inside the slot.

This one didn't even need a stamp! I love it! 

I was going for the elegant look on this one :-)

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired. I hope to post more cards coming up soon! 

Please use my Online Store for your Stampin' Up! products. I'd love you to choose me as your demonstrator!

JOY! Banner and Online Extravaganza! Free Gift for YOU!

First TEN orders received online will receive this JOY BANNER *FREE* from me to you!

This Christmas as I look around at the word "JOY" I will smile because that is the name of my newest grandchild, who is now 8 months old! I made this banner so quickly using my Buffalo Check stamp, Stitched Labels Framelits and retired Large Letters Dies. Add a little 3/16" Braided Linen Trim to hang the banner and you are finished! You can place this on a large package, or use it on your tree. Mine is now hanging from the front of a small shelf in my studio. My inspiration came from the Holiday Catalog, pg. 8.

Warm Hearted Mistletoe

This card was made using a lot of green because I'm green with envy that many Stampin' Up! demonstrators are at On Stage in Orlando celebrating Stampin' Up!'s 30th Birthday! I just couldn't get away at this time of year, so some of us are making cards with green in them and posting them in our private Facebook Gallery. I'm sharing with all of you right here on my blog!

This card is original except for the sentiment tag, which was inspired by Sandi MacIver, a fellow demonstrator from Canada. I love how she added the frills around the "Thanks", all stamps from the Warm Hearted (Host) stamp set. Then she punched the corners ticket style using the Everyday Label Punch. Very clever, Sandi!

I'm glad you stopped by my blog today. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

I'd love to be your demonstrator when you shop my Online Store.

Simple One Layer Thank You

I created this simple card because I wanted to try out a technique I haven't done before: Ombre effect using our sponge brayer. I punched out the leaf design and then used the leftover card stock as my template. I used Crushed Curry ink to place the ink, rolling my brayer over my ink pad, then over the template from bottom right corner to top left corner over and over until I liked the shading.

To be honest, the designer series paper was placed on the right side of the card to hide my inky fingerprints! Has that EVER happened to you? :-)  Then I stamped THANK YOU from Vertical Greetings and my card was ready to send.

I hope you were inspired today! Thanks for stopping by.

I'd love to be your demonstrator when you shop my Online Store.
