Star of Light Gift Card Holder

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to make this super easy gift card holder using a regular envelope! I made this about 2 weeks ago but it has taken me this long to make the video and post these pictures. I never imagined that making a video and uploading it would be so time consuming. I wish I had magical powers to just blink my eyes and make it happen by itself. If only I had about 10 more hours in a day to get everything done on my To-do list. I am sure many of you can relate to that, especially at this time of year.

Watch the video to see step by step instructions. I used the Star of Light framelit and the Fancy Frost designer paper for the front. The snowflake inside and the Surprise are from the Tin of Tags stamp set. You can find all of these products in the Stampin Up Holiday mini.  If you would like to purchase the products shown here or any other Stampin Up products, just click on the shopping cart to the right.

Christmas Gift Ideas!

Hey everyone!

Today I am sharing the projects I am doing in my class tomorrow. We are making a gorgeous framed art piece, a caramel corn gift bag and clear treat box filled with candy. Cost of the class is $20 and includes all of your supplies including the frame. The framed art uses the Sheltering Tree stamp set and sponging. I also used the copper foil as a background piece. The leaves and matching framelits can be found in the big catalog. For the treat box, I used the Christmas Magic stamp set from the Holiday mini.

Quick and Easy Christmas Card!

Hey everyone!

I have a super quick and easy Christmas card to show you today! I created a video to show you how I did it, but here are some of the details…. I used the Father Christmas stamp set and early espresso ink to stamp the images. Then I sponged it in soft suede. I stamped all of the images at the same time but putting them on one block. To see how, check out my video.

It’s Snowing!

Hey everyone,

It’s snowing! Well, not really….it’s really raining as the outer bands of Hurricane Matthew touch VA, but my card is snowing!

I combined 2 different stamp sets to create this beautiful snowflake card. I stamped the larger snowflake from Frosted Medallions (pg 37 in the Holiday mini) using bermuda bay ink and then I stamped the smaller snowflake from the Tin of Tags set (pg 33 in the Holiday min) using rich razzleberry ink. I sponged a little pool party in the center. Then I stamped the gorgeous grunge speckle stamp all over in bermuda bay too. I added the rhinestones for a little sparkle. Hope you like it.

It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas!

Hey everyone!

Can you believe fall is here already and Christmas is just around the corner! Wow, where does the time go? I feel like it was just spring a couple of weeks ago.  Well, I have been making lots of Christmas cards so I thought I would share a couple with you.

For this card, I used the Candy Cane Lane designer paper which you can get on sale this month and I used the Candy Cane Christmas set. I stamped the peppermints in real red onto the real red cardstock. The merriest wishes is stamped in black. The house is cut out of the candy cane lane paper. No stamping there. You can’t see it in the picture but I added wink of stella to the roof and chimney for a little sparkle. The circle and scallop circle are cut out using the layering circle framelits.

Hope you like it. Please leave me a comment if you like. If you would like to order the items for this card or anything else, just click on the shopping cart to the right. Use code 7CZVFSKG . All online orders over $50 will get 4 hand stamped cards from me in the mail!

Have a great day and if you are on the East Coast, be safe. Hurricane Matthew is coming this way, but hopefully we won’t get too much damage here.

Check Out My Candy Cane Lane Treat Box!

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to make an adorable Christmas treat box using the Candy Cane Lane designer series paper from Stampin Up. It is so easy to make that you will want to make a bunch of them as gifts for everyone! For the real red cardstock, I started with a piece that is 5 x 8 1/2 and the belly band is 2×9. I scored both of them at 1 1/2, 4, 5 1/2 and 8. The red piece is also scored at 1 1/2 on the short side. You can see it all in the video!

The only difference between the 2 pics is the house on front and the belly band.  I cut the houses out of the candy cane lane paper.

All of the items used are from the Stampin Up Holiday mini catalog on pg 5. The red stitched ribbon is one of my favorite new ribbons. It is so pretty in person.

Star of Light is So Gorgeous!

Hey everyone!

Here is a card that I recently did in one of my classes. I used the Star of Light stamp set and matching thinlits found on pg 9 in the Holiday mini catalog. I love, love, love the swirly stars stamp in that set. It is so pretty. I did the whole card in night of navy and then punched out the top star in silver glimmer paper. It looks so pretty in person. The picture really doesn’t show the sparkle. It is a super easy card….the hardest part is cutting out the stars which is really pretty easy. I found that if I punched out the glimmer paper upside down, it cut easier.

If you would like to purchase this stamp set, bundle or anything else, just click on my shopping cart to the right. Also, scroll down to see the special I am having right now! Anyone who orders at least $50 will get 4 free stamped cards from me and be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card. Use hostess code 9NHC9VQ4

If you can’t tell from most of my posts lately, this Floral Boutique paper is one of my FAVORITE things in the new catalog. I have many, but this is definitely at the top of my list.
