Gift Card Holders

Today I have another gift card holder.  These have been very popular in my shop this year.  I have had several custom orders for these as well, I am working on an order for 18 right now.  Luckily they are easy to make.  I used the Top Note and the Gift Bow dies.

As you can see, I am using up a lot of retired DSP.  Thanks for stopping by!

Deck the Halls

I just thought I was done with custom orders!  I made 8 of these gift card holders for a customer.

This is the inside, I used Velcro to close them.  I used retired stamps and papers but my customers don't mind.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thanksgiving

I love this sentiment from the stamp set Mingle All the Way.  We did this card as part of our In color class so the sentiment is colored with all the 2014-2016 markers.  Thanks for stopping by!

Ornamental Pine

We got a surprise yesterday at our In color class, after we finished our projects Becky R.  had brought us 3 more projects to do.  She taught us how to put a stamped image onto a candle using wax paper.  I love how this turned out and will be making some more for sure.  She also had a snowman project, a cocoa holder using an envelope.

As you can tell, I promptly dropped mine on the ink pad after I finished it!  And the last project was an altered notebook which I think is adorable.  Thanks Becky, you made my day!

Wondrous Wreath

I have been wanting to make a door card for a while so yesterday I made one.  I really didn't like my door at home, it was a ugly brown color and I kept asking my husband if we could get a new one.  Well, it is actually a double door and an odd size which has to be ordered and is very expensive.  So I decided to paint it actually hoping that he would hate it and be forced to buy a new one.  It didn't work, I painted it  Cherry Cobbler and it turned out pretty so I guess I am not getting a new door.  I used Cherry Cobbler on my card although it looks like Real Red in the photo.  Thanks for stopping by!

A Merry Little Wish....and a Special Paper Pumpkin Offer

I really like Baked Brown Sugar and Cherry Cobbler together.  I heat embossed the trees with white embossing powder and then used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details and some green Stickles.  The little silver star is left over from a Paper Pumpkin kit.

And here is the inside.  I used the leftover piece from the On Film framelit die cut on the front.

Speaking of Paper Pumpkin....did you know that you can prepay for kits?  If you prepay for a kit between now and November 30, I will send you a FREE kit to make 4 of these cards!  You can email me at for more details.

On the First Day of Christmas....

My kids love to do a countdown to Christmas and we have done a lot of different methods over the years, all of which they enjoy.  I like to come up with different ways each year but the one thing that doesn't change is the reading of the Christmas story.  A couple of years they even acted it out and I have videos of their performances.  The stamp set (12 Days of Christmas) I used  is in the SU 2014 Holiday Supplement which you can view here.  The little boxes are in the Holiday catalog and you get 25 boxes for $6.95!  To order these supplies or any others, click on any of the products shown below and it will take you to my  SU online store.
