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! You’ve Got This Lends Happy Notes to a Best Wishes Card!

Hope you’re sitting down.  This is a bit earth-shattering.  Are you ready?

Today’s share is….NOT….a Christmas Card!!  gasp 

Instead, it’s a custom-made card requested by a friend of mine for a friend of ours.  She’s headed to a new job, and he wanted one of my “special” cards (his words, not mine!).  No special requests. But, I remembered she likes pink – she even has pink shoes!  So that was certainly a starting point!

And – when you look at the list of products used in this card, you should be sitting down.  Really.  It looks HUGE.  Well, it really kind of IS huge.  But, it was necessary for this card and this sketch!

There are two central stamp sets used – You’ve Got This and Happy Notes – both from the Annual Catalog.  The design was inspired by Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge number 284.  Be sure to check them out, okay?

SSSC 284

And the color scheme comes – again! – from Stamp, Ink, Paper.  I just had to do it – I loved the idea of putting pink with the black and white.  So I did!

I chose Pink as my color – but I took a few liberties with it – I used Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette. Take a look-see:
