Stampin’ Up! Sweetbriar Rose Just a Note

Do you ever have one of those days where it seems all your creative juices have just dried up?  That was me today!  I sat down at my table and….sat. And looked at my stamps.  Admired my new Combo ink holder.  Checked my e-mail to see if my new Ribbon Holder had been delivered – not yet, but by the end of the day, so….checked out all the ribbon I planned to put in it when it arrived.  Made sure I had a place to put it.  Looked at the three or four challenge blog e-mails I had.  Nothing came to my head.

I tried faking it.  You know, fake it till you make it?  I made a couple of dry embossed panels with sponging and stamping in the TIEFs.    One may make an appearance at some point – but one…oh my.  It went from Big Shot to trash can – didn’t even need to think about it.  No fixing it – no salvaging it for something sometime.  Just…toss!

Finally, I got a teensy inkling of what I could put together.  I’d gotten the Mojo Monday challenge – a Tall and Skinny Challenge – and a Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge – a color challenge.  I looked over at my scrap box and saw a piece of Early Espresso that was left over from when I was playing with my Simply Scored Board for Monday’s card.  The Stamp, Ink, Paper colors were….EARLY ESPRESSO, Blushing  Bride and Gold.  I took it as a sign from above.  And I was off!  Well, more …like I was…

Somehow the Sweetbriar Rose came into my head when I thought of the Blushing Bride and Gold together.  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:

Stampin’ Up! Sweetbriar Rose Joins One Big Meaning!

Good morning, all!  Happy weekend to everyone – I hope that you have fun plans and good weather to do them!

A few days ago, I saw a card that Amy Koenders had done using the beautiful Sweetbriar Rose stamp.  And that reminded me that I’d wanted to add that to my stamp stash.  And so I did, right then, before I could forget again.  And at the same time, I added another long-time “want” – One Big Meaning.  They arrived on Thursday, so I built a card with them for you today.  Take a look-see:
