Christmas Gift Holders

Tuesday 29 November 2011

My last creations as part of the Design Team that I have been participating are gift card holders.  I'd never made these before, but had fun making these.

The first one is made using the Matchbox Die for the Big Shot, but I extended the size by creating 2 bottoms and then making a cover by cutting cardstock in the length and width needed for the box.  I think it turned out amazing.

For the second gift card holder I used the Top Note die with a folded piece of paper.  I put the fold on the die just a little below where it would normally cut.  This gives a folded card in the shape of the top note.  I covered it with Designer Series Paper and added ribbon and a sentiment.

 For the inside I used an envelope I sealed and then cut off part of the length.  A little glue to secure it in place and a saying.  I attached the gift card to a piece of cardstock with a little tag to make it easy to pull out the gift card.

Christmas is coming fast!  If you're interested in these ideas or any others, contact me and I'll help you make some great gift card holders!

The Online Extravaganza ends tomorrow, Send me your orders via email OR go on to my Online Store and place your own online.

Happy Stamping!

Christmas Cards in Non Traditional Colours

Friday 18 November 2011

I've made a few cards that aren't in the traditional red and green colours of Christmas.  I love how they've turned out, so much so that I've decided that one set of my personal cards for family and friends will be in Early Espresso this year (I won't post so it will be a surprise for those that receive one!)

This card uses the Stitched Stocking Stamp Set and the co-ordinating stocking builder punch (page 34 of the Holiday Mini Catalogue).  The patterned paper is from the Mocha Morning Specialty DSP series.  I was so impressed with how this turned out!

I used the Serene Snowflakes stamp set (page 35 Idea Book and Catalogue) in Night of Navy, Bashful Blue and VersaMark and glitter.  

Early Espresso and Pear Pizazz - what a pretty combination.  This card uses the Christmas Lodge stamp set (page 29 of the Holiday Mini Catalogue) and is very quick and easy, but makes a beautiful card.
If you're interested in learning how to make any of these cards or to purchase the supplies, please contact me.  Stampin' Up! is having an Online Extravaganza starting November 21st.  Between November 21st and November 30th, if you log in to my online store, you'll find some great deals as well as being able to purchase the supplies to make these cards.
There will be some special deals and "free" downloads for My Digital Studio that will only be available through the online store.

Happy Stamping!

Sharing some creations!

Monday 7 November 2011

Hi everyone,
It is definitely feeling like fall and time to start thinking about Christmas!

I'm sharing some of my cards with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators and crafters for the month of November so will post my creations here as well.

This week the challenge is "Let it Shine" - use glitter and rhinestones.  It is a perfect challenge as I start to think about Christmas.
This card is made using Serene Snowflakes and uses the Shaker Frames from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini.  These cars are so cute.  I used Glass Glitter in this one.

The Stitched Stocking Stamp Set and the Stocking Builder Punch is such an easy way to make beautiful cars!  I've also scored the white background using the Simply Scored tool - again very simple and quick to create a card everyone will love to receive this Christmas!

I will share some of my other cards later in the week.

Happy Stamping
