Gift Card Holder

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Essence Bird Ballad Fun Fold

Happy Tuesday!  The week is clicking by!  Soon it’ll be Hawwmp Day and we’ll be on the downhill slide to the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!

My card today is…another fun fold.  In fact, it’s the same fold as yesterday – sorry! – cuz I needed another gift card for a co-worker leaving the program.  And – I wanted to do something flower-dy and pretty for her.  So…I used the same fold on the inside, but…pulled in the Floral Essence stamp set, plus some gorgeous painterly Perennial Essence DSP and a Bird Ballad Laser Cut Note card – all available on 4 June!  Take a look-see:

Look at that gorgeous die cut card front – that’s ALL from the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards and Tin set – which is part of the new Bird Ballad product suite.

For the card front layout, I used the sketch challenge from CAS(E) This Sketch this week.

I started by creating a diagonal mat from So Saffron and a Very Vanilla “card front”.  On that Very Vanilla piece, I stamped a sentiment from Floral Essence in Blackberry Bliss ink.  Then I stamped a couple of flowers from the same set in So Saffron, adding Crushed Curry centers (there are a couple of different “center” images to choose from in the set).  I also stamped some pretty leaves in Mossy Meadow – and colored them with my Light and Dark Old Olive and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Vanilla panel to the So Saffron mat.

To create my card base, I used the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card and, using Liquid Glue, adhered a Petal Pink piece of Perennial Essence DSP to the back of the laser-cut front of the card base.  Then I adhered my matted diagonal to the front.

Using the flower stamp from Perennial Essence, I stamped it three times in Petal Pink on Petal Pink card stock and three times on the Petal Pink Vellum from the Perennial Essence 12″ x 12″ Vellum Card Stock pack.

When everything was dry (it takes a minute on the Vellum!), I punched all the flowers with the new Perennial Flower Punch (which will be available on 4 Jun, bundled with the Perennial Essence stamp set).  I lightly curled the petals and glued a card stock flower to a vellum flower to create three full flowers.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped some more leaves in Mossy Meadow and colored them with the Blends.  Then I fussy cut them.  

Using Liquid Glue, I added the leaves and flowers in an ever-so-artistic manner, added a few fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Centers (4 Jun!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I re-created the fun pop-up gift card holder just like I did yesterday, using Perennial Essence DSP and sentiments/images from the Perennial Essence stamp set.

You can see the basics in my video here.

For this one, though, I created the actual gift card envelope from some Perennial Essence DSP – and I cut my little “window” with the Starburst Punch.

 

I added the sentiments in Blackberry Bliss and the flowers and leaves in So Saffron,  Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow.

Once again, I left the lower Very Vanilla panel blank so all my co-workers and I could sign it!

The envelope, which is part of the Bird Banner Laser-Cut Cards and Tin set, got more of the Perennial Essence flowers on the front…

…and I left the flap alone – they already come with that beautiful scalloped edge!

Et Voila!  I just love this fold – I promise, though, last one!  But isn’t it gorgeous with the Perennial Essence suite?  And those Bird Balllad Laser-Cut Cards – instant BAM!!  I hope you like – and that you’ll make some of these fun gift card holders.  And…are adding this Suite to your wish list!

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Happy Monday, y’all!  I hope you had a good weekend.  I really did – a fun Saturday and a productive Sunday!  I even slept in yesterday.  Until 8!!  Which, for me, is the equivalent of sleeping until noon.  And I STILL managed to get the laundry done, go to the grocery store, make a few cards, do a video AND work out on the treadmill.  Whaaaa?!?!?

If you were able to join me last night for said video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me – and for being flexible on the day!  If you didn’t get to watch, but would like to see how to make this cool pop-up gift card holder, here’s the replay on YouTube!

I made this card using some new products coming soon in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog – including some goodies that you’ll be able to get in my Catalog Shares!  I mostly pulled from the Come Sail Away Suite – but…check out the Magnolia Lane Large Memories & More Card and Envelope that was the base for my card.  Take a look-see:

Looks pretty…normal, huh?

The magic happens when you open it up!

Now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ about!  What a fun way to give a gift card, huh?

There are lots of videos and blogs out there showing how to make this fun-fold, but the one I found was from Kim Score over on Splitcoast Stampers!

I started with some Mossy Meadow paper from the Come Sail Away DSP that I matted on Soft Suede for the card front.  Then I stamped a All Things Thanks sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut it out with the label die in the new Smooth Sailing Dies (available on 4 June with the new catalog).

The rest of the “icing” is cut from Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow and…leftover craft paper from a Magnolia Lane Large Memories & More Card…using various dies in the Smooth Sailing Dies.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere some of the sea grasses and the sentiment to the matted card front.  Then I added a Soft Suede ship’s wheel.

The final touch is an anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets set, with a “lanyard” made of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Pack (available on 4 June), that I adhered with a Glue Dot.  And that’s it for the card front! 

I thought it would be fun to use one of the new Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and the matching envelope as the base – AND as the actual gift card holder! – for this one.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere my completed card front to the front of the large notecard – it fits just inside the printed/embossed silver frame!

The inside is created with two pieces of Come Sail Away DSP on the top and bottom parts of the card, both matted on Soft Suede.  The “pop-up” mechanism is just two 4″ tall pieces of the DSP, scored and folded at 1″, 2″ and 3″.  Here’s a tip.  For this card, the DSP is cut at 6″ wide to match the width of the card.  If you want to use a standard A2 card base – the length would STILL be 4″ – but you’d adjust the width to match your card base size.  I explain that in the video, so check it out if this is confusing! 🙂

I used a second Magnolia Lane note card, cut to size, to create the smaller gift card holder in this card.  You could easily use DSP, though!

The Tailored Tag Punch gave me the “cutout” in the gift card envelope – and it created the perfect little “window” to the All Things Thanks sentiment on the back panel.  Just a note – the wonderful All Things Thanks stamp set is retiring – so….you should pick it up before it leaves us forever on 3 June!

I also used a little rope sticker from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack to decorate the sentiment panel and the blank panel on the bottom.  I left that one blank so everyone could sign the card!

I decorated the front of the envelope with a few more cutouts from the Smooth Sailing Dies…

…and I left the flap with the simple silver enhancement that was already there!

Et Voila!  This is a super simple fun-fold – that looks WAY harder than it is!  It’s so easy that you MAY see it again tomorrow…. 😉  I am already very much loving the entire Come Sail Away suite – the Sailing Home stamp set and bundled Smooth Sailing Dies will all be available on 4 June!  I also love how these Memories & More cards and envelopes work with TWO Suites….Magnolia Lane and Come Sail Away!  BIG bang for your buck!  Hope you like!

Go ahead – just add it all to your wish list now.  You know you want to!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Traditions Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Morning, y’all!  Happy Monday!  I, for one, am hoping that we woke up to some sunshine and a little warmth today.  The entire weekend was entirely too yucky for us – wet and nasty.  It was the kind of weekend where you just wanted to roll over and stay in bed.  Maybe with some kind soul bringing a cup of hot chocolate.  And maybe a cookie.

Or twelve! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how to make the pop-up gift card holder we worked on, here’s the replay!  Oh – and the last 30 minutes is all 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs Sneak Peeks!  Just sayin!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Sneak Peek for Stamp Ink Paper #149

Morning, y’all! This is the first of two posts for me today – I’ll be back at 8am with another card for this month’s Amy’s Inkin Krew Blog Hop.

For now, though, being that it’s Tuesday –  it’s also Stamp Ink Paper challenge day!  We’ve got a fun theme challenge for you this week!  Dads & Grads!

I don’t have anyone graduating, but it seemed like a perfect time to use the new Sitting Pretty stamp set.  I’ve been planning for this since I saw it for the first time at OnStage!  Next year – I’ll have a UGA grad to make a card for.  This is…practice for that day!  I combined the bulldog image from Sitting Pretty (a new set in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog) with a few sentiments from Stitched All Around (also coming on 1 June), a couple from the new Itty Bitty Greetings and I made a custom sentiment with the Make a Difference stamp set! 🙂  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You in the City!

Happy post-Eclipse Day!  I hope you enjoyed the event yesterday, wherever you were.  We pretty much watched it on television – cuz they were showing some pretty spectacular images!  Pretty cool.

My card today is the one that I gave to Matt on Sunday – with a couple of gift cards in it – Home Depot and Bed, Bath and Beyond.  Both seemed appropriate for setting up a new house!  I used the In the City host-exclusive set, and a bunch of elements from the At Home With You bundle.  On the inside is a sentiment from the Home Life stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

I designed the card based on the FabFriday challenge – making a pocket for the gift cards.

If you look – the gift cards are the “embellishment” on the right side. 🙂

I started with a Crumb Cake card base, and stamped a couple of the images from the In The City stamp set in Crumb Cake across the front.

The angled panel is a piece of Crushed Curry that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and then added some faux stitches with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I stamped the door from the At Home With You set in Early Espresso onto a piece of Wood Textures DSP and cut it out with the die in the matching At Home Framelits.  

I popped the Crushed Curry panel onto the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips (I only used the foam on the top, bottom and left side – leaving the right side open for my gift cards) and then adhered the cut door with Liquid Glue.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

Then I got busy decorating my front door.  I stamped all the images from the At Home With You set in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I pulled out a plethora of Stampin’ Write Markers to color everything:  Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pear Wild Wasabi, and Tangerine Tango.

Once everything was colored and cut out with their matching dies in the At Home Framelits, I adhered everything with Liquid Glue and some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my sentiment, I cut the word using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits – cutting three of them from Cajun Craze and stacking them with Liquid Glue.  I brushed it with my Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the front with Liquid Glue.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

I added a little Linen Thread Bow and a Touches of Nature Element with Liquid Glue.  Sticking my gift cards in completed the card!  

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Home Life stamp set in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla mat.  Over the sentiment, I added more images from In the City in Crumb Cake.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

I added some more faux stitches in Cajun Craze, Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and then into the card base, and that was it for the card.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more In the City Crumb Cake images across the front.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

…and then I added some more Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

Et Voila!  There’s more than one way to give someone some gift cards, yes?  And it seemed awfully appropriate to use the At Home With You bundle, Home Life and the In the City host-set.  I know Matt liked the card – it even got a spot on the refrigerator in his new house!  Hope you like, too!

Finn-Fan Fix  

So, today, while Wayne and I were looking thru a double-filtered welding helmet watching the not-to-be-seen-again-for-7-years eclipse, Finn was…bored.

I mean – nothing was happening.  It wasn’t particularly dark.

No aliens showed up.

No angels sang – no power went out.

Pretty nondescript kind of day.  

This is how his sister dealt with the event.

IMG_9517

Wishful thinking.  We were hoping to see this…

IMG_9515

What we really saw was….dim.

Just…dimness everywhere for about 2 minutes.  Even looking at the sun – we saw no corona.  No “diamond ring”.  Just a sliver of sun.

Kind of a let-down.

Finn’s response?

Let’s pull something out of the garden and see if anyone notices…

Stampin’ Up! Falling For You Gift Card Holder for the Share The Love Blog Hop

16473727_10212256266470133_7285693284419105782_n
Good morning, y’all – happy Valentine’s Day and welcome to the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!  And, in honor of the day, this month’s theme is Share the Love!  I can’t wait to see what all the ladies come up with and I hope you’ll spend some time scrolling thru all their offerings today!

My project is the second installment from the gift items I made for my friend’s wedding this past weekend.  Wedding…Love.  Made sense to me!

A few weeks back, I made a card using the Falling For You stamp set and the Falling in Love DSP.  When I selected this card for them, I decided to make a Gift Card Holder to go with it.

Stampin’ Up! Hexagons Dynamic TIEF Sneak Peek Gift Card Holder!

‘Sup, y’all!?  The week is progressing apace – Christmas is almost here!  I took out a second mortgage today to mail packages with UPS.  Crazy.  It’s my own fault for waiting so long – procastination is expensive, it turns out – but….really?!?  One might think I’d learn my lesson after doing the same darned thing every year.  But apparently not…

Speaking of lessons – Finn-Chewie sort of got one today from the Haflinger School for Dogs.  He – against my advice – went into the pasture with the horses this morning.  

Cerah decided she didn’t really want him around and stomped her foot at him.  Which caused him to bounce back.  Which made Cady decide he must want to play tag – which she and Buck used to do! 😉

Finn-Chewie didn’t “get” the tag thing.  All he saw was Cady chasing him – which caused him to growl/bark/tuck his wiggler and boogie as fast as he could to the fence.  It turns out that they’re a lot bigger when they’re coming at you with their heads down than they are walking docilely ahead of you to the pasture with Mom leading them.   I think he thinks they’re moving because he’s following them! 😉

Poor little dude.  Except I told him to not go in the pasture.  And I tried to call him back out of it.

Teenagers.  They have to learn the hard lessons on their own, I suppose!  Cuz parents are dumb and also boring.

Getting savagely attacked by rogue Haflinger ponies does make a kid thirsty.  Hose time!  He bites the water as it comes out! 🙂

finn-at-the-hose
So – my card for today isn’t even a card.  It’s a gift card holder.  Gift cards are so easy and usually welcomed by the recipient, right?  But I always sort of feel like I’m phoning it in a little when I give them.  So, if I can give them in a cute holder, it assuages my guilt.  I made two gift card holders with the new (Occasions catalog) Hexagons Dynamic TIEF.  Take a look see:

hexagons-dynamic-tief-gift-card-holder-2-stamps-n-lingers hexagons-dynamic-tief-gift-card-holder-1-stamps-n-lingers

These are so darned easy!  I started with a piece of 4 1/2″ x 6 1/8″ Real Red card stock.  I scored it along the long side at 1 1/4″, then turned it and scored 2″ in from the other end.
