Snowflake Gift Card Holder/Card

This is another card that I made where you can have the gift card holder right inside the card.  How awesome is that?!  You only have to do one card for both things you need.  Who doesn't like that time saver, especially at this time of year.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper #144629

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 12" score at 4" and 8"

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

  • cut 2 at 3 7/8" x 5 3/8"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" 
  • cut at 1" x 4"

Basic Gray Cardstock #121044

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 5"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"

To make the pocket for the gift card you are going to start with having your designer series paper laying in front of you with the 12" side on the top and bottom.  You will want the pattern that you want on the outside facing down onto your desk/table.  

Fold down the upper right hand corner to the first score line (this is the dotted line on the picture).  The pink diagonal line is where you will fold down the corner.   Trim off a sliver of the edge that is right a long the score line.  This will help it fold nicer and not be too thick.  I used a little bit of Snail Adhesive under this flap to help hold down the section that you folded.  It lays flatter if you do this step.  

You will need to put your piece of cardstock in the middle section before you adhere the right side flap to the middle section.  I put a piece of paper here because I didn't want the other side of the paper showing and to make it a little stronger since we are using a designer series paper.  If you were using a piece of plain cardstock you would not have to do this step.  

If you are going to use this for a gift card you will want to put the adhesive up to the blue line in the picture.  If you want to use it to put tags or maybe some tickets you will only put adhesive on the edges.    

TemplateforgiftcardholdercardStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman 2

You can then go ahead and adhere all your other pieces and your sentiment.  I used Snail adhesive on the sentiment because I wanted it to be flat.

The picture really doesn't show you how pretty the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter paper is on top of the Foil Snowflakes.  The snowflake was cut out using the framelit from the the Trim Your Stocking Framelits.

Merry Christmas Monday Week #4

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Seasonal Chums stamp set #144948, The Little Things stamp set #144954, Pizza Boxes #144645, Winter Wonder Embossing Folder #144686, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Week #4 Merry Christmas Monday project was so much fun and turned out just the way I had pictured it in my mind.  A lot of times I have one idea in my head and when I go to put it on paper it turns out totally different.  This time it turned out just the way I imagined it.  I love it!

I have a little bit of everything on this project.  First of all I used the Seasonal Chums stamp set with coordinating Seasonal Tags Framelits, Winter Wonder embossing folder, At Home Framelits, our new Stampin' Blends markers and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Mini Pizza Boxes #144645

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

  • cut 2 at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 3/4"
  • scrap for the sign

I stamped the front portion of the snowman with the Memento Ink and colored it with the new Stampin' Blends markers.  I used the Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party markers.  If you look real close you will see where I used the light Pool Party and went around the edges of the snowman.  This softened the look of the snowman and gave him some shading. This stamp set along with the Seasonal Tag Framelits are offered as a bundle, which is a 10% savings if ordered together.  You have to use the bundle item number when adding this product to your order to get the discount.  

To make the little sign I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and cut it out with the little rectangle from the At Home Framelits.  Take your white piece of cardstock and rip it to make the snow.  I then used my Fine -Tip Glue Pen and covered it with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter for the snow to sparkle.  I cut a 1/8" piece from Early Espresso paper for the stick on the sign. 

The embossing on the Pool Party cardstock was made using the new Winter Wonder embossing folder.

This is what the inside of the box looks like.  I can't let it go undecorated so,  I used the stamp from the The Little Things stamp set that was made to go with the Mini Pizza boxes.  For the candy inside, I went looking around Target to find something different.  I ended up purchasing the Hershey Bells and they fit perfectly!

Merry Christmas Monday Week #3

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Labels to Love stamp set #144967, Seasonal Chums stamp set #144948, Be Merry DSP #144111, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I have been wanting to do these little cups for a long time.  I was so excited when I saw them on Amazon and ordered them, three months ago.   I put them on them somewhere I wouldn't forget, and guess what, I forgot!  LOL  

When I finally found them I was so excited!  I would like to thank Shari Lackey for sharing her beautiful holder for these cups with the directions.  

These cups are perfect for a gift card holder too!  You can slip a gift card behind the band and fill the cup up with chocolate.   Perfect gift, chocolate and a gift card!

For both of the cups and holders I used the Be Merry designer series paper in our annual catalog.  For the green holder I used the Labels to Love stamp set and the red one I used the sentiment from the Seasonal Chums stamp set.  

You will need the following products to make the holders:

Cherry Cobbler Holder:

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 11"  score at 3/4", 3 1/4", 4" and 6 1/2"
  • cut at 3/4" x 6 1/2" 
  • scrap for the 1 1/4" circle

Whisper White Cardstock # 100730

  • cut at 2 3/8" x 3 5/8"
  • cut at 5/8" x 2 3/8"
  • scraps for the 1" and 1 3/8" circles

Be Merry Designer Series Paper #144111

  • cut at 3" x 7 3/4" for the cup
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"
  • cut at 1/2" x 2 1/4"

Garden Green Holder:

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 11"  score at 3/4", 3 1/4", 4" and 6 1/2"
  • cut at 3/4" x 6 1/2"

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

  • cut at 2 3/8" x 3 5/8"
  • cut at 5/8" x 2 3/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Be Merry Designer Series Paper #144111

  • cut at 3" x 7 3/4" for the cup
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"
  • cut at 1/2" x 2 1/4"

To make the cover for the cup I took apart a cup and made a template on a piece of copy paper.  I then traced around the template on to the back of the paper I wanted to use.  That way the pencil marks were not on the front of the cups. 

In the picture below it will show where to score the paper for the holder, use the 2" punch and put the Tear and Tape.  Sometimes, actually a lot of times, it is hard to line up a punch in the center of an area.  So, I have a  little tip for you.  Punch out a circle out of a different color than what you are going to use for your base.  Take that circle and put just a tiny bit of Snail Adhesive on the back of it, and put it where you are wanting to punch out the circle.  Line up the the white circle with the hole in the punch and punch.  You now have your circle perfectly centered.  Yay!!!

Be Merry Designer Series Paper #144111  cut at 3" x 7 3/4" for the cup cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" cut at 1/2" x 2 1/4"

Here is another picture of the holder and cup so you can get a better look at it.

Merry Christmas Monday Week #2

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Seasonal Chums stamp set #144948, Seasonal Tags Framelits #144685, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder #143708, Scalloped Tag Topper #133324, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I was on Pinterest last week looking for some inspiration for some gift card holders and I came across a card with a tag and holder on the front of it.  I thought it was interesting, because I hadn't seen anything like it before.  I can't remember who designed the card I saw, but thank you for sharing it with everyone.   The first thing I had to do was come up with a template on how to make this and the measurements.  Once I figured that out, I had to come up with a design. 

The first one I made, which I forgot to take a picture of, I made for Erica for her birthday.  I had so much fun making it, I thought it would be great to make another one for my Merry Christmas Monday series.  The above picture is the first one I came up with.  Isn't the little reindeer so cute?!  Oh, my goodness, I love him!  He is from the stamp set Seasonal Chums stamp set and has matching framelits, Seasonal Tags. There is also a snowman and a pumpkin in the set too.  

I colored him with the new Stampin' Blends markers, can you see the shading on him?  I used the dark and light Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler along with the dark Basic Gray, dark Daffodil Delight and the Bronze markers.  A reminder that when you use the Stampin' Blends markers you have to stamp your images with the Memento Ink.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8n 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 3 3/4" x 8 1/4"

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3//8"
  • cut at 2 3/4" x  2 3/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Below are pictures on how to make the tag and holder.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

You are going to score on the 8 1/4" side at 3 1/2" and then turn your paper to the 3 3/4" side and you will score at 1/2" on each side.  If you look at the second picture you will see how I cut and scored the paper at the same time.  You are going to cut down until you get the to score line (the 3 1/2" line)  and then you are going to score to the end of the paper.  You can see in the picture below what I am talking about.  

 
StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

 

After you have done your scoring and cutting, don't forget to angle the 1/2" pieces so they fold nicely.  Refer back to the first picture where you need to cut the flaps at an angle.  

 

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman6

The next step is to mark the section that you just cut the flaps off of at 1 3/8" (this is the center of this end of your paper).  If you look at the picture you can see where I placed the mark.  

 

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman3

The paper is going to be wider than the slot on the punch, but you can still use it.  You will need to slide the paper in the punch as it is shown in the picture above. Once you have it in the punch make sure your mark at 1 3/8" is in the center of the punch.  See the photo above to see the mark I made.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman4

Next, trim off the little tabs that are still on there.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman5

Add a strong adhesive, as shown above, I used the Tear and Tape, and burnish (use a bone folder to make a sharp crease on the score lines) and put it together.  Figure out where you want to put it on your card before adhering it.  With this strong of adhesive it is hard to take it off and move it.  

For the background on my card, I used the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler piece of paper.  Now, is the fun part, decorate the tag holder as you wish. 

Making the tag is super easy.  Take a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut it at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".   I used the Scalloped Tag Topper again, so it will match and you will have to slide it in the same way as the Crumb Cake piece.

With this set, the stamps have a front and back and they are attached.  It is designed that way so you can fold it in half and have a cute little tag all at once.  How awesome is that!  I cut mine apart, so I used the back piece to decorate the inside of the card.  For your envelope you could just stamp the front of the reindeer and color it if you wanted to or you could just leave it uncolored.  Either way, it will be beautiful.

Isn't the back side of this deer just as cute as the front.  He is so stinkin' cute!

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

Our carpet is finished!!! I love, love, love it!  One of my daycare kids told me it is so squishy.  Compared to our old carpet, that is 18 years old, it is definitely squishy.  LOL  I don't think I have worked that hard physically in a very long time.  It took them four days to finish all of it, but it was so worth it.  I really don't want to move any more furniture for a while.  You don't realize how much stuff you have until you have to move all of it.  Needless to say, there were a lot of trips to drop of things to Goodwill.  

Mr. Wonderful went to Michigan over the weekend to spend some time with Erica.  I know that made her very happy to see her daddy.  I love how she still calls us mommy and daddy.  I really wish I could have gone with him.  I haven't seen her since the beginning of September.  This is the longest we have gone without seeing each other.  We are hoping and praying she will be able to come for a few days at Christmas.  

Emily comes home late on Friday night (well, really Saturday very early in the morning).  We haven't seen her since July and I can't wait.  It is really hard being this far away from our girls.  We are blessed that she will be able to be home for a week and two weeks at Christmas. 

Oh my goodness!  Do not try to type up your blog post when you are very tired.  I have a very busy week this week, so I have been working a lot in my stamping studio this weekend getting prepared for it.  I was working on this blog post late last night and was literally falling asleep while I was typing.  So, I went to bed and finished it this morning.  It is a good thing I went back and reread it.  One section I wrote the same thing three times, three different ways.  Another section I typed what I heard on TV.  It would have been a very interesting and funny blog post if I had posted it.  Note to self, don't work on blog post when you are tired.  LOL  

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a blessed week.

On Friday while sitting up my display I got to meet Connie Stewart, one of my favorite demonstrators.  She is such a sweetheart!  I got to talk with her for about 20 minutes, which was the best part of my day. On Saturday I was able to get a picture with her.  I am not crazy about the look on my face, but I only got one picture with her, so I will take it.

Carla, Kim and I hung out together all weekend.  I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.  We had been talking with each other on Facebook and text for a while, so it was nice to finally meet in person.  I can say, I have found 2 very good friends over the week.  They are the best!

  1. Stamp all you images on your Whisper White Card Stock using Crumb Cake (for a softer look) or Soft Suede (for a more bold look).  
  2. Use Crumb Cake ink and sponge around all the edges (make sure you do all edges that fold)
  3. Adhere your stamped pieces to the appropriate Crumb Cake card stock
  4.  Using the 2" circle punch, punch out half of circle on the biggest piece of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper
  5. Adhere the Designer Series Paper
  6. Fold your holder so that Santa is on the top of the bottom fold.  Put a dimensional so that it is just below the flap with Santa on it.  You want to be able to still open up this flap.  
  7. Then adhere the circles so that the bottom are even with the bottom of the card holder

The Santa will fit right under the circles.  Isn't it the best gift card holder?!  Whoever you give it to, they will love it!

This weekend I have been busy baking.  I make goodies bags for all of the daycare families and for Mr. Wonderful's work.  I made 13 different goodies.  My house still smells so good!  

Have a wonderful week!

Happy Stampin!

Do you ever have those times when you need a fast gift card holder to make it extra special.  I have the right one for you!  This is a 5 minute project that you can decorate for any occasion.  This is one of those projects that I know I will use again and again.

This design reminds me of a matchbook with a little twist.

Wondrous Wreath #135047, Embellished Ornaments #139759, Reason for the Season #139730, This Christmas Designer Series Paper #141628, Wonderful Wreath Framelits #135851, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more gifts, cards, scrapbooking and 3 D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

To make this card you will need the following materieals:

Cherry Cobbler Card Stock #119685

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 2", 7 1/4" and 7 3/8"

Very Vanilla Card Stock #101650

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 6 1/2" score at 1 3/4" and 6"

This Christmas Designer Series Paper #141628

  • cut at 1" x 6"

The first thing you will need to do is get out your Envelope Punch Board.  On the Cherry Cobbler paper on the longest end you are going to line it up with the 1" mark and punch.  Flip over the paper and line up with the 1" mark and punch.  Now your sides will be even. Next, fold up the bottom (where you scored at 2") and burnish it with your bone folder.  You are going to take your piece of This Christmas Designer Series Paper and adhere it around the bottom of the holder. You don't want to put any tape on the inside of this flap or your card will not fit.  Fold over the top part and crease your score marks with your bone folder.

On the Very Vanilla Card Stock you will want fold the bigger section up and stamp your sentiment on it.  I also stamped on the middle section with leaves.   Fold the top 1/2" section backwards and put Tear and Tape on this section.  Put the Very Vanilla piece into the bottom  flap on the Cherry Cobbler paper and push it in all the way.   Remove the white part of the Tear and Tape, making sure your paper is laying flat and fold over the top of the Cherry Cobbler.  Press down making sure your Very Vanilla paper is adhered to the Cherry Cobbler paper.  

Now you are ready to decorate it however you would like it.  I added a wreath, bow and twine and then it is finished!

Who wouldn't love to get a gift card in this adorable snowman gift card holder?  If it has anything to do with a snowman, I love it!  I bought a new candle holder the other day and Mr. Wonderful (aka my husband, Mark) said, "of course you did, it has a snowman on it".  He knows me so well.  

This was one of the five projects we made at my Christmas Gift Card Holder class last week.  We had such a good time.  I was able to sit down and stamp with my friends, which I absolutely loved.  It has been such a long time since I did that.  

To make this project you will need the following:

Marina Mist Card Stock #119682

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 7 3/4" score at 1 1/4" and 4 3/4" on the 7 3/4" side and score 1/2" on each side of the 3 1/2" side
  • 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"  punch with the 2" circle

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut enough to cut/punch a 3 1/4" circle, 2 1/2",  2 - 3/4 circle and 1/2" circle

Basic Black Card Stock # 121045

  • scraps for 2 - 3/8" circles and 2 - small ovals

Night of Navy Card Stock # 100867

  • cut at 3/8" x 2"

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock #105117

  • 3/8" x 1" cut it at a diagonal

To assemble your snowman:

  • use Soft Sky Ink and sponge around all the white pieces except the 1/2" circle on the top of his hat.  
  • adhere the 2 1/2" circle to the 3 1/4" circle overlapping just a little bit. The total height of the white pieces is 5"
  • emboss the 2" Marina Mist circle using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder
  • cut the hat at 1 1/2" high
  • adhere the Night of Navy strip
  • attach hat to the top of the snowman
  • adhere eyes and use the White Chalk Marker to put the white marks on the eyes.
  • I used a little Blushing Bride Ink and a Dauber to add color for his cheeks
  • adhere the nose and feet
  • wrap your ribbon around the smallest section of where the two white circle meet
  • attach the holder, make sure you use song adhesive (I used Fast Fuse)
  • attach the two 3/4" circles with a glue dot on the edge of the circle
  • I used tiny velcro circles for the closure of the gift card holder
  • attach a little bow

You now have this adorable Snowman Gift Card Holder.  Isn't he stinkin cute?!

Yesterday I had my daycare Christmas party and had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures of my little angels

Graduation Card and Gift Card Holder

                      IMG_1486

 

It is graduation time and that means a lot of cards and gift card holders.  I made this card and holder for Emily's roommate, Nichole. Nichole is also very special to our family as she has been our neighbor for the last 17 years.  

To make this card I made three triangles of different sizes for the front.  Here are the dimensions for the triangles:

  • the largest one (Tangelo Twist) is 3 7/16" across the bottom and 4 7/16" high.  
  • the middle one (Early Espresso)  is 2 3/16" across the bottom and 2 13/16"high
  • the smallest one  (Tangelo Twist) is 1 13/16" across the bottom and 2 5/16" high 

If you have the Bigz L Perfect Pennants die (this is retired) you can use it and you will get the same sizes. 

To make the little cap I cut the Tangelo Twist into a 1 3/8" square and the Early Espresso is 1 1/4" square.  I used the paper piercing tool #126189 and the Stampin' Pierce Mat #126199.  I then put one of the Candy Dots Brad Bases #132293 and added a rhinestone to the top of it.  I also used rhinestones on the smallest triangle.   I made a male version of the card and used the mini brads #122491.  The picture below shoes both versions of the card.  

                         IMG_1485

I didn't have any bakers twine that color so I used embroidery thread instead.  You can use any saying you wish for the front.  I had the stamp set from Sale A Bration called Perfect Pairings and Congrats fit perfectly.  

On Friday I had the directions on how to make the gift card holder. Click Here for the post.  

I hope everyone has a fabulous week!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin!

Black and White Thank You

                     IMG_1480

 

I wanted to give Emily's mentor teacher, Julie, a thank you card and for everything she has done for Emily.  Julie is a wonderful teacher, mentor and above all a terrific friend to Emily.    Julie's favorite drink is coffee, a women after my own heart, of course that had to be the theme of her gift.  She also loves the colors black, white and lime green.  I didn't have any lime green so I used cucumber crush card stock instead.  

There is nothing like seeing someone's expression when they see your creations for the first time.  I love making people happy with the items I make!

I used a retired stamp set, Perfect Blend, to make this card and tag, but you could use A Nice Cuppa stamp set if you would like.  I have to say I love the Perfect Blend stamp set and it will be in my collection for a long time.  

To make the card I used the following materials:

Basic Black Card Stock #121045

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • scrap pieces to stamp the coffee cups with white craft ink and the scallop circle

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • scrap piece to stamp the top part of the stamp (the lid) and the circle 

Scrap pieces of any Designer Series Paper to add to the coffee cup.  

To make the different pieces of the coffee cup you are going to stamp the whole image with white craft ink on basic black card stock.  Then with black ink you will stamp the lid part on white paper and fussy cut it out.  For the designer series paper section you will use black ink and stamp on your the dsp paper and fussy cut.  I then used the pieces you just cut and adhered them to the black base.  

To make the splatter marks on the card I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.  Who doesn't love this stamp set?!  You can do so many neat things with it.  The saying in the corner is also from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set.  

I know I used some retired products to make this card and tag, but I wanted to give you some inspiration and ideas for you to make your own designs.  If you have a stamp set that you absolutely love, keep it, use it and enjoy it!!  For me this is one of those sets.

The scalloped circle punch that I used is on the retirement list, so if you would like it, get it soon as it will no longer be available after May 31, 2016 or while supplies last.  

Here are close ups of the card and the tag I put on the bag.

I will show you tomorrow the gift card holder I made to match the card and tag.  

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin!
