Spirited Snowmen Gift Card Holder

We had our retreat last weekend and Julie Johnston shared this project with us so just had to make it for y’all!  Gift cards are so popular for holiday gift giving but need a pretty package to go with them. This cute gift card holder is perfect and so easy to make that you can whip them up in no time! And with all the beautiful Christmas DSP we have, the hardest part will be deciding what pattern to use!

I wish I could capture the sparkle in this card on camera but you can really see it in the video tutorial here:

Ever wonder what to do with those copper tins you ordered? Today we will make a winter-themed card set that fits nicely inside the tin. And, we can’t have a nekkid tin so we will decorarte it as well. This will make a great gift for that special friend and because it isn’t too girly, would work for a man as well as a woman! So grap a cuppa and let’s get decorating!

Here’s a picture of the finished set:

Make Their Holiday Shopping Easier!

Do the people in your life complain that you are a hard person to buy for?  I know, mine do but now that I am a crafting fanatic, shopping has become so much easier for them.   And, I’m about to make it easier for your shoppers too!

You know I love the new Blends!  The more I use them, the more I realize what a great coloring tool they are.  Everyone who likes to color needs a set and Christmas is the perfect time to ask for them.  And, here’s an easy way to drop a large hint about what you really want for Christmas.

Save the below pic and print off a dozen or twenty copies to give to anyone who might be scratching their head wondering what to get you.  I have been known to put suggestions for my Christmas gifts under hubby’s coffee, in his sock drawer, under the sun visor in the car and the always popular taped to his bathroom mirror.  Subtle, no?

 

blends present

 

Just tell them all the info they need to get you this fabulous Christmas gift (website address and stock #) is on the pic.  When they get to my blog tell them to click on the Shop Online with Me button in the upper right and it will take them directly to my store.  There they can enter the stock # and complete their purchase.

And if you’ve been really good (and of course you have) remind them that along with the Blends you will need something to color – perhaps the Remarkable You stamp set (#139894) or Just Add Color Designer Series Paper (#144180)?

Easy peasy and no running around on their lunch hour fighting traffic and throngs of frenzied shoppers. Now you are armed with the info to help make your holiday shopper’s life stress free when they are searching for just that right gift for you.

I hope Santa fills your stocking with the Blends and other coloring goodies which you will enjoy throughout the year.  Ta for now!

A Blessed Christmas – For the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

blog header

This month’s blog hop is all about Christmas and I know you are going to enjoy all the fabulous cards you will see as you hop through it.  I decided to go very traditional with mine as far as content – it’s all about Christmas blessings.

Bethlehem w

I started with a side-folding A2 card (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″) using Whisper White card stock.  I then used the second largest oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Big Shot  to cut out the center portion of the card as well as a piece of Dapper Denim card stock to use as the focal point on the inside.

Using the Night in Bethlehem stamp set, I inked up the narrower set of dwellings in Night of Navy and stamped it in the lower section of the Dapper Denim oval.  The star is from the Bethlehem Edgelits Dies and was cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper using the Big Shot.  This was glued flat onto the Dapper Denim piece using Tombow Liquid Glue.

Next, I stamped the inside greeting (again from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set) onto the bottom inside using Smoky Slate ink.  The smaller star is from the Star of Light stamp set and was stamped twice on the inside using the same Smoky Slate ink.  I then glued the Dapper Denim piece to the inside of the card with Tombow Liquid Glue.

For the front of the card I again stamped the small star twice and then heat embossed the sentiment (from Night of Bethlehem) using Versamark and Stampin’ Up! Gold embossing powder.  I used a scrap piece of Whisper White to stamp the shepherd and lamb in Soft Suede ink and then used Wink of Stella for a little shimmer.  This was cut out with the matching die from the Bethlehem Edgelits Dies and popped up with Stampin’ Up! mini dimensionals.  And that finished the card off.

I hope you enjoyed this card and will give it a try.  If you need any help with it just pop a comment below.  You can order the materials by clicking on the Shop Now button in the upper right corner.  Now to continue the fabulous hop, click on the Next blog button below or the Previous blog button if you started with me.  You can also click on any of the links in the list to go to a specific person’s blog post.  Ta for now!
