Stampin’ Up! Christmastime is Here Fun Fold Gift Card Holder

‘Sup, y’all!  How did the Fall-Back go for you?  It’s 7am here.  But really 8.  So – you should be wide-awake and perky!  Your dogs and cats and ponies are looking at you like – what the HECK!! – but…YOU got an extra hour of sleep.

Or…did you??!

Regardless – we’re in it now until Spring.  Bleh.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your last evening in Daylight Savings Time with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay – here ’tis on YouTube!

The project we did last night is quite timely, since we’re plunging headlong into Gift Card Giving Season (GCGS).  I like giving gift cards – I do! – but…they always seem a little like I phoned it in.  So…I feel BETTER about it if I can present them in a beautiful and/or clever gift card holder.  And this one is both!  With the gorgeous Christmas Rose stamp set and bundled Rose Dies, atop wunnermus Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

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:

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?!?!?

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.  

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…
