Gift Card Holder

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!

If you go out on Pinterest, you’ll find all kinds of gift card holders – and several different folks with different ways to make this pop-up version.  I took my guidance from Kristy Coromandel in Australia!

I used the cute Christmas Traditions stamp set and punch from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box in the Holiday Catalog to make mine – paired with some Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Take a look-see:

But the fun happens when you slide off the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim belly band…

 

This one – and the others that I made last week and will show you in a second – are made with Festive Farmhouse DSP – but obviously you could change DSPs to fit a different time of year!

I used the Christmas Traditions stamp set and Punch – which come in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box.  When you buy that set, you’ll get the 6-sentiment stamp set, the Punch, a beautiful keepsake-quality 8″ square tin box to hold your supplies or creations, and a Call Me Clover and Read Red Classic Stampin’ Spot!  Whoo-hoo!!


Each card holder starts with a 4″ x 9 1/2″ piece of DSP, scored – with your trimmer or Simply Scored board – and folded…

The solid lines are folded as “valleys” and the dotted line is a “mountain” – and it’s also where you’re going to cut to create the slot for your gift card!  The video will show you exactly what I’m talking about!

My video sample used the Christmas Traditions Punch for the middle section, but you could use almost any punch that’s the right size.   On this one, I used the Darling Label punch!

These are so quick to put together – then you can decorate all willy and nilly!

I used some 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim for the belly band and bow – and some little Mossy Meadow pine boughs cut with the Night Owl Thinlits!

Take a look at some other holders I made!

I used a Galvanized Metal Button for mine – but you could use a True Gentleman Button just as easily and it would look great!

So…I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve got some folks on my list who bamboozle me a bit when it comes to picking gifts!  And – gift cards are always right.  Always the right size.  The right color.  But…sometimes they feel (to me!) like I’m sort of phoning it in – know what I mean?  On the other hand, a fun way to present the gift card helps to make it fun and a little more personal.  This one – that pops your gift card up as soon as the gift-ee opens it – is really fun!  And made even easier with the Christmas Traditions Punch Box stamp set and matching punch!  Hope you like!

AND – the Christmas Traditions Punch Box is on SALE in the Year End Clearance!  Check it out and snap it up, y’all!

Saturday was a wash-out for the dog.

It literally rained and was nasty all day! 🙁  Which means not a lot of time outside.

But – I had to run some errands – mail catalogs, hit the hardware and Sams Club.

I asked him if he wanted to go with me…

…or stay home with his Dad.

So – since his answer was quite obvious for anyone to see…I took him with me.

This is him leaving…

And this is him after the fourth stop where he had to wait in the car…

He was finally just too disgusted to even look at me.  ESPECIALLY since the last stop was…Tractor Supply!  But – no leash in the car, so…no Man in the store! 🙁

But – he survived (if barely) and we gave him a couple of good runs in the drizzle and mud to let him blow off a little rainy-day steam!  Nothing helps make a day better than totally soaking all your pantaloonies and skirt-feathers in mud and then hurrying into the house to get dried off!

P.S.  One other rainy-day thing….take a look at some pre-order goodies that arrived while I was gone!

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.  

Screen Shot 2017-08-21 at 17.49.54

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.

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Wrapped Seaside Shore

Last weekend in Savannah is in the books, folks!  This time next week I’ll be home and – hopefully! – unpacked and back in the home-groove!  And it’ll be August, for goodness sake! Can you even believe that??  I mean, the thermometer definitely knows it’s August, but darned if this year isn’t just flying by!  We just did some Christmas in July, but…it’s going to be Christmas-for-real really soon!

And speaking of which – next week is the deadline to be sure you’re on my list to get a free 2016 Holiday Catalog!  If you’ve placed a $50 or higher order with me in the past year, and you let me see who you are (you’ll know cuz I sent you an e-mail and an ordering gift!), then you’re in – you’ll be getting a catalog in the first half of August.  If you haven’t placed an order, this would be a good time – pick $5o or more of your favorite goodies and I’ll automatically put you on the mailing list! 🙂

Now – speaking of goodies.  The Seaside Shore stamp set, which I played with for today’s card, is what I’d call a “sleeper”.   When I first saw it, I wasn’t all that impressed.  I really couldn’t see me making much with it.  But, now that I’ve got it, and have made a few projects with it – I really really love it.  It’s just so much fun – especially when combined with the By The Shore DSP and the Seaside TIEF.  And for this one, I added a couple of sentiments from the Perfectly Wrapped set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gift Card Holder from a Sketched Dots Gift Bag!

Good Friday morning!  By the time this publishes I should be a few hours down the road on my way to Tampa for the first On-Stage Live event!  I’m excited – this will be my first official Stampin’ Up! event (I hemmed/hawed/deliberated/debated too long this past summer and missed out on the last ever SU! Convention. 🙁 )  So, this should be fun.  We’re going to do make-and-takes (I assume, since they told us to bring acrylic handles and solicited volunteers to bring their Big Shots!) and get a sneak peek of the upcoming 2016 Occasions Catalog!

For today, since I’m drafting this on Thursday evening, and my clothes are in the dryer (and not in my suitcase!), I’ve picked a little project that will be quick to share.  It’s a Gift Card holder – everyone gives gift cards and we’re heading into the Gift-Card-Giving-Season! – easily made using a SU! Sketched Dots Tag A Bag Gift Bag, the Happy Notes and A Little Something stamp sets,  and some easy embellishments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Little Something Cute Personalized Gift Card Holder

Just a quick little project for you today.  We’re headed into the gift giving season – and most of us have a few folks on our list who just sort of….befuddle us….when it comes to what to get for that person.  For some reason, most of those people on my list are guys!  Hmmm.  Not sure why – but there it is.  I always kind of hate to do a gift card – somehow it seems like a cop out.  On the other hand – a gift card always fits, is always the right color, and is usually something they want! I do try to pick gift cards that are suited to that person.  Bass Pro for my hubby (usually in addition to other gifts), Amazon for the twenty-something boys/men who are in college and starting a career.  None of them want a Bed, Bath and Beyond gift card, or a Williams-Sonoma card! 🙂

The Gift Card holder I’ve made to share with you today was a requested item.  My friend has a friend (yes – more than just me!) who has found herself in the unenviable position of having a house full of mice.  Not a couple.  Not even a few.  Apparently – it’s an “infestation”, that she found one evening when she “heard a noise in her kitchen and when she turned the light on, there THEY were”.  The poor woman has spent thousands and thousands of dollars getting rid of the mice and replacing everything she fears might have been “touched”.

So, Jan is giving her a gift card (Bed, Bath and Beyond maybe?!) to help her replace some stuff.  And she asked me for a gift card holder.  With maybe a….mouse…. on it.  She assured me her friend will find it funny!

I’ve put up a Tutorial to show you how to make the basic Gift Card holder using the Envelope Punch Board.  It’s so easy it’s ridiculous.  Check it out here!  So, I made that holder, and then I decorated it according to her request!  Take a look-see:
