Gifting with a difference

In my Craft Class this week we made a gift card holder with a difference, it contains 4 small envelopes.

You choose what to put in each envelope some suggestions are;

  • Gift Cards
  • Tags with personal messages
  • Chocolate
  • Tickets to an event or show

Or a mixture of these ideas and your own.

The envelopes were made using the Envelope Punch Board, then we decorated them and punched a hole in the top and tied them together with a ribbon. I got the idea and tutorial from  Patty Bennett from California.

Happy and sad

I made this beautiful card using the Happy Watercolour Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue.  I love the subtle background made using the watercolour stamp and the delicate flowers stamped on the tag. The card base is Crisp Cantaloupe and the thank you is stamped on So Saffron in Baked Brown Sugar.

Another new favourite is the gold sequin trim, this is carrying over into the new catalogue so I’m happy about that. But sad to see the Happy Watercolour stamps retire. You have until 30 June if you would like to buy this set. The card was Cased from Julie Davison via Pinterest.

Just as well the new catalogue is full of other equally gorgeous stamps and what can be better than new stamps?? Nothing!

Make this Card

This is my contribution to the display board at convention this year, using the Post Card and Blooming with Kindness stamps. At the Stampin’ Up!® convention each year they have display boards where demonstrators can display a project they have created for the other demonstrators to gain inspiration from and to give recognition to the amazing ideas and creativity that we all have. We all spend ages with our cameras pouring over the display boards, it’s a great feature of the convention. This year I have created this card from an idea that originated in the catalogue and was posted by Penny Smiley to Pinterest. I picked it up from there and added my own vintage flavour.

Now you can make this card by joining my class on June 1st, check out all the details here.
