Gift card holders from Paper & Glassine bags, Stampin’ Up!

 

Hi stampers! I know I am a tad bit behind on my blogs, so as a promise to myself and you all, I got caught all up right before my little vacation so you would have some fun things to create and be inspired by while I was away!

These two were super fun to create, and I think they make a fun way to give your gift, and an even better way to receive one.

You can change the DSP used, change the sentiment , change everything or you can make it just as it is.

What will you create? Send me a picture on Facebook and let me see too!!

Instructions:

You will want to score your bag (either one) at 3″, (on both sides) to get a better crease.

Cut a piece of DSP to measure 3 1/4″ by 12″. Then you will lay the DSP down( with the side dow you want to facing out) and fold to meet the sides. Then overlap the back, and add Snail to close the ends together.

If you want to add the Whisper White insert it will measure 4 1/2″ by 2 3/4″.

You can do a little background stamping for interest, and this will be the perfect spot to add your greeting. Also, make sure you tell them to enjoy the gift card, so they know to look for it inside!

You can stamp any sentiment you would like, and punch it out with the 2″ circle punch, add a second 2″ circle punch in Silver foil to add some zip. (How often do you hear that not related to Miracle Whip;))

You could stamp any sentiment, and punch it out with the Sweetheart punch, and then layer onto a 2″ circle punch with Dazzling Diamonds or the Blushing Bride glimmer paper too!

Wrap a little ribbon around it for added flair, or leave it more plain if you want to, it’s all up to you.

Hope you like this cute little treat holder as much as I do 🙂

Until next time…….

Stay Crafty!

Mini cards with Carried Away DSP, Stampin’ Up!

 

Hi Stampers! These cards are so very fun to make! It’s like getting a two for one deal, because you can create so many, so quickly!

I hope you will forgive the shortness of this post….we are headed off on a little break, and I wanted to get one more post done for you, but I didn’t have a whole lot of time 🙂

You can make two tall, or two short cards, or four of both! They are super easy, and I can see a whole lot of these in my future. I also would love to see what you create. Will you send me some photos?

This is my one year anniversary as a blogger by the way! SO…….

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO US 😉

’cause I wouldn’t be doing this if it weren’t for you all! So thanks for sticking by me, and I promise to make this a fun, and crafty journey .

Ok, the cards  will vary depending on your choice of style. I will outline both, and you choose your fav.

Tall Card:

4 1/4″ by 11″ base of Thick Whisper White, score at 5 1/2″, then cut in half at 2 1/8″.

DSP layer measures 2″ by 5 2/8″, just add with some snail, and add the balloons with a dimensional, add clouds if you wish. Stamp your sentiment in Night of Navy, flag the end and add with snail or mini glue dots.

Wide Card:

5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, then cut in half at 2 6/8″.

DSP layer measures 2 1/2″ by 4″, again add with snail, and add a few dimensionals to the Night of Navy balloon, and attach. Add clouds if desired. Stamp your sentiment in Night of Navy ink and add with mini glue dots.

BOOM! Easy! Done, and this is such a fun, and simple card to make your own.

You can use a regular envelope to mail this since the clouds hang off, but the envelope is large enough to hold them in place.

Make sure to check out the video for a few extra tips and ideas!

Until next time…….

Stay Crafty!

A Cupcakes & Carousels birthday! , Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers! are you loving the new 2017 Occasions catalog? I am! When I first opened it, this theme caught my eye immediately. It Brough me right back to feeling like a little girl at a birthday party, it is so fun and carefree! So I jumped at the chance to make a project to share with my other  demonstrators, and this was what I came up with……What do you think?

I love the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack! There are a ton of really cool patterns, and color combos. The Carousel Birthday stamp sets is fun, and whimsical. It is like the beach and a birthday party rolled all in to one for me! There are also a ton of little embellishments that go along with this theme. Tassels, ribbon, sequins, and all the colors in this suite make me happy, like a sunny day.

Alright ,enough with the syrupy sweet sap I have become…..on to the CARD!

Base layer is 4 1/4″ by 11″ piece of Peekaboo Peach, scored at 5 1/2″. I then stamped the Ferris wheel in Peekaboo Peach on the card as a background filler.

Sidenote: Peekaboo Peach is not a favorite of mine: but after this set, I really, really like it.

Next you have the hard part….choosing which pattern paper you want from the DSP stack, really that was the hard part for me. I did pick one that had Peekaboo Peach in it, but if you pick a different base color, you can certainly switch it up.

Layer of DSP : 2 1/2″ by 3 3/4″ mine was the harlequin pattern.

Stamp the circus tent in Dapper Denim onto Whisper White scrap, trim out, and add some Cajun Craze for an old tent look  if you’d like.

Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White in Dapper Denim ink. Pennant the end with paper sips or the Banner Triple Punch. Mine measures 1 1/4″ by 3 1/2″, you can always make it shorter if you like. I also added a Rhinestone 😉

Stamp the Ferris wheel in Early Espresso, fussy cut, then go over with a little Soft Suede on a sponge for the aged look. Rhinestone in the center of the wheel.

Optional:  I added some Peekaboo Peach ink to an aqua painter  and painted it onto Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. You will need to add in some drying time, you can heat dry it a little with the Heat Tool, but it will smoke when it gets too hot ( TRUST ME ON THAT ONE) and it still doesn’t completely dry. Patience is best.

Then I ran it through the big shot, with the small icing part, and small cupcake base part that are in the Up & Away Thinlits dies set, which coordinate with this stamp set. HOW CUTE!!!!!

Attach these with mini glue dots to get a good adhesion.

So, to wrap up :

~adhere your DSP to the Peekaboo Peach base with snail

~adhere the Ferris wheel with dimensionals near the top right

~ adhere the Happy Birthday banner with Fast Fuse to the bottom left

~ adhere the tent just at the bottom edge of the DSP

~ add inside sentiment or your greeting!

I hope you enjoy this card 🙂
