Pocket_card_stamped

Create a fun little birthday “card” that holds both a message and a gift card. Use the number stickers to represent your recipient’s age. Stamp on the lined pocket card and add a sweet birthday wish. This is super-quick and easy.

Gratitude-for-days_crbgift-card-pocket

Add a little pocket and note to a treat or gift. I love being able to tuck a little message inside the pocket. And there are 30 of these cute clips in the kit that are perfect for attaching the pocket to your gift.

Gratitude-for-days_crbquick-thanks-tag

Use it with Project Life. This kit coordinates beautifully with the Happiness Is Project Life Card Collection. If you cut down the pockets from the Gratitude for Days kit, they become 3" x 4" specialty cards—which you can then add as an interactive element to your Project Life layout. Insert the lined card in the pocket with journaling, or use it to store ticket stubs/memorabilia.

Gratitude-for-days_crbproject-life

Memory_bookStack the pockets together and punch holes in them to create a mini memory book. 

 

Here is a video from Stampin' Up! showing you this cute book.

Work of Art Christmas Tree

One of the cards from my last Christmas Card Class this year.  We used the Work of Art stamp set to create this simple Christmas Tree.

Work_of_art_tree

I inked the long brushstroke stamp in Mossy Meadow and stamped it at the bottom of the card.  Without reinking, I stamped it again, just slightly above and to the left.  I repeated the process all the way to the top to create the tree.

We added a die cut bow out of the Red Glimmer Paper using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits and some small circles punched with the 1/4" Circle Punch.  The greeting is from the Christmas Bliss Photopolymer stamp set.

Party Pennants Treat Pouches

Cute treat pouches made with the Party Pennants Bigz L Die and the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper.

Party_pennants_treat_merryeverything_group

Party_pennants_treat_merryeverything

These are super easy - cut a piece of card stock to 2-3/4 x 8 and score it at 1-1/2, 4 and 4-1/8. Fold it in half (on the 4" score line) and attach a piece of Designer Series Paper (2-3/4 x 1-1/2) to one end on the inside.

Place it on the Party Pennants die making sure the the folded edge is inside the cutting area.  The open ends are at the top.  (I use sticker sheets on some of my Bigz dies to help me see the cutting lines better)

Party_pennant_treat_2

Take it off the die and this is what you have.  Punch holes in the sides, add your chocolate bar, thread the ribbon around it and tie.

VIDEO - How to Make Money Holders

A few days ago, I had a Money Holder on my blog and promised a video, well, here it is!

Every year, I make Money Holders as I do like to give cash to some of my family members, mainly the teenagers as they are so hard to buy for. 

I have created a number of these over the years and have a Pinterest Board for them, check it out MONEY HOLDERS ON PINTEREST

Super easy card for you today. I love quick and easy cards when I need to make a bunch.

Christmas_bliss_treepunch

I love using our Kraft card stock with the Under the Tree Designer Series Paper, it is a perfect match.

I started with a Cherry Cobbler Base and added a strip of the tree pattern down the middle.  I cut a pennant shape from the Kraft card stock and punched a tree with the Tree Punch.  I added a piece of the green striped paper to the back of the pennant so it would show through.  My greeting is from the Christmas Bliss Photopolymer set and the Champagne Glimmer Paper star finishes it off.

Seasonally Scattered - last bunch

I created these cards with the remaining stamped images I had in my stash.  I stamped the "thanks" image from the Seasonally Scattered stamp set using the Baby Wipe Technique on these tags. I have additional samples and brief instructions for the technique HERE and HERE.

Seasonally_scattered_four

I cut the pieces to 2" wide so I could use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on them.  I added a snippet of Mossy Meadow Satin Stitched Ribbon and secured it with the Handheld Stapler.

Seasonally_scattered_babywipe1

I ran the card through the Big Shot with the Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and added a piece of the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper behind the greeting.  Super easy cards.
