Pocketful of Sunshine Gift Card/Cash Holder

Good Morning and Happy Thursday! Well, I'm over the moon excited! I've officially registered for my very first Stampin' Up! OnStage event for November! Ready or not Orlando, here I come! (Make sure you're following my FB Business Page because I will be sharing as much as I will be allowed to share.
In the meantime, I have a fun card to share with you. I actually did this card during a FB Live this past Sunday. It's a fun card and is perfect for sending those new college bound students off with a gift card or a little "pocket cash"!
I am really falling in love with this new Balmy Blue. It pairs beautifully with Night of Navy and the Daffodil Delight as you can see here. I think this card really pops with these pretty colors.
To recreate this card, you will need the product listed below. Everything is linked to my online store to make your shopping experience easier.


Night of Navy card base: 4.25" x 11" scored at 5.5" and 2.75"
In Color 2018-2020 DSP: 4" x 5.25"
Balmy Blue: 4" x 4" to cut out the pocket shaper
Whisper White: Large enough to die cut the largest layering shape from the Stitched Seasons dies
Daffodil Delight: Large enough to die cut the largest layering shape from the Stitched Seasons dies


Begin by running the Balmy Blue through the Big Shot with the Pocket die set and run the Whisper White and Daffodil Delight pieces through the Big shot with the largest layering die from the Stitched Seasons Framelits. Fold over the Night of Navy with the first score line to make a standard card base. then, fold back on the second score line creating the Z Fold. Adhere the Daffodil Delight die cut to the outside flap. Add the DSP to the inside of the card base and layer the Whisper White die cut on top, taking care to line it up with the Daffodil Delight to hide it on the inside. 

Next, stamp the "stitching" onto the pocket with Sahara Sand ink and the the sentiment using Night of Navy ink. Add adhesive, preferably Tear & Tape to the pocket tabs and adhere to the card front. Add rhinestones to the corners of the stitching and that will complete your gift card/cash holder. 

I hope this card inspires you to give it a try. It was a lot of fun to play with and was so quick and easy. Go ahead, grab your supplies and give it a try. If you would like step by step video instructions, visit my YouTube channel where I uploaded my FB Live session and you will be able to follow along while I make this card. And while you're there, please take a minute to follow my channel, I would greatly appreciate that.

Center Step Gift Card Holder with Coffee Cafe

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all off to an amazing week. I know I am. I recently received my holiday pre-order and OH EM GEE! You need to be sure to head over to my FB page and check out my haul video I did live! Wow...just wow! Once again, Stampin' Up! knocked it out of the park! I will start sharing some sneak peeks over the next week or so here, but today, I want to share this fun Center Step Gift Card Holder with you! I just love how this turned out. I got my inspiration from Mary Lee at Splitcoast Stampers.
To create this card, you will need a half sheet of Soft Suede cardstock 8.5" x 5.5"and your Stampin' Trimmer. Place the 5.5" edge up against the top of the trimmer and line the right edge upto the 1" mark to the right of the trimmer blade, cut from the 1" mark on the trimmer arm to the 5.25" mark. Flip the cardstock and do the same thing on the opposite side.  Now, turn the cardstock with the 8.5" edge to the top of the trimmer and score at 1"; 2" and 5.25" on the outside of each of the cut lines you made above. Then score between the cut lines at 4.25". Once you have all of your cut and fold lines done, fold the center into a mountain fold as well as the top of the "armatures" then the bottom of the "armatures" into a valley and the final score line will be a mountain fold.
Next, cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock 3.25" x 3" and layer a piece of the Natures Poem DSP cut 3" x 2.75"and adhere to the card front. Then, stamp the coffee cup onto a scrap piece of Crumb Cake with Crumb Cake ink, stamp the label, sentiment and lid in Soft Suede and cut all pieces with the coordinating dies and adhere to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, taking care not to adhere the cup to the "armature" preventing the card from opening. Next, cut a piece of Whisper White 5.25" x 4" and with the 4" edge to the top of the trimmer, score at 1" . Fold up and add adhesive to each end to seal creating a pocket for a gift card. Stamp the coffee beans in a random pattern along the "pocket" and adhere the panel inside the card. And that my friends, completes our project today. I hope you enjoyed today's card. If you have any questions, please let me know as I would love to answer them for you.

Last Chance to Save and an Early Release

Hello and Happy Tuesday! It is May 1st and there is just so much happening in the world of stamping! First of all, did you know that the early release of Share What You Love bundles are live today?
Yep, they sure are, you can now get your hot little hands on these amazing bundles of product. I have been playing with it for a few weeks now and I am so in love with this entire suite. It's just gorgeous! The colors are amazing and I swoon every time I get the opportunity to play with them and it's only during May that you can bundle these products. Once June 1st rolls around, you will only be able to purchase the individual products and you will not save the 10%.
May is also the last month for getting your hands on retiring product that hasn't already sold out, and sorry to say, lots has already gone, but there are still plenty left, so don't miss out on your faves. But in addition, May also marks the end to all of our current bundled products in the catalog. So, what I mean is, although the sets themselves may not be retiring, the ability to shop and save 10% on your purchase goes away after 5/31; then you will still be able to purchase the stamp and die or punch, but it will be at full price...and why would you do that if you can save 10% now if you know you want it? So, any current bundles that you want, get them before the end of May while you can still save.
One of my most favorite current bundles is the Wood Words Bundle. I just love this set. It just makes me happy every time I pull it out and right now, you can get if and save 10%! The little crate makes a perfect gift card "keeper" for these adorable 3" x 3" thank you cards I made. And the rooster just makes me happy and works so well with the Wood Textures Designer Series paper, which is also carrying over to the new annual catalog.
To recreate this adorable little set, die cut 2 of the crate pieces from the Wood Textures DSP and assemble using Tear and Tape adhesive. Stamp the rooster onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla with Early Espresso ink and die cut using the coordinating die and attach to the front of the crate with a Stampin' Dimensional. Next, to create the note cards, cut Very Vanilla cardstock into 3" x 6" pieces and score and fold at 3". Next, cut the Wood Textures Designer Series paper into .5" x 3" pieces and adhere to the bottom edge of the note card. Then stamp the rooster image in the lower left hand corner of the card and the Thank You in the upper right hand corner in Early Espresso ink. Then place them in they little crate. The crate will easily hold 10 of these 3" x 3" cards and envelopes. If you enjoy tutorials such as this, be sure to sign up for my weekly newsletter, here to have them delivered straight to your in box.
Happy Stamping!

Christmas In July - Carols of Christmas Remarkable Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to the Remarkable Creations Blog Hop. This month, our theme is Christmas in July with a focus on the brand new stamp set, Carols of Christmas. This is an early release from Stampin' Up! and will be available to our customers beginning Tuesday, August 1st; the same day as we demonstrators can begin our pre-orders from the new Holiday Catalog! Ooooh, I can not wait to share all of those goodies with you! Anyway, if this is your first stop along the way, I am Katrina Wolfe and if you scroll down, you will see the list of links for the rest of the talented demonstrators hopping along. Be sure to follow those links to some pretty amazing ideas using this bundle.
I decide to create an elegant gift card holder with this set. This bundle just screams elegance to me so I decided to go with a non-traditional Christmas color palate, Black, Gold and White to capture that elegance.
To create this card, I began with a half sheet of Basic Black, 4.25" x 11" scored at 2", 7.25" and 7.375". Using the envelope punch board, I cut notches from the "longer" end at 1" turned and punched again at 1". This creates a closure for the matchbook style gift card holder. I then folded the lower, smaller end up and secured it with the Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon. I love this ribbon to work with. It's so soft and fluid and so easy to tie into bows.
For the white insert that will hold the gift card, I cut a piece of Whisper White 6.5" x 3.75" and scored it at 1.75" and 6". I then folded on the score lines, the wide end I folded up toward me, and the smaller end, I folded back. I stamped some of the smaller images using Archival Black ink to the piece and applied adhesive to the narrow end and inserted the white piece into the pocket formed by the fold in the card base. I lined it up just beneath the bottom fold line in the base and closed it, burnishing along the area of the adhesive. Now when you open the card, it will naturally lift the gift card up and out of the card base.
Next, I cut a piece of Gold glimmer paper 4" x 3.25" and a piece of Vellum the same size. I ran the Vellum through the Big Shot twice, to cut the frame from both ends of the Vellum. For the second cut, I just lined the sides of the die up and into the previous cuts. I then dusted it with my Embossing Buddy to remove any oils from my fingers and any static. I stamped Deck the Halls with Versamark ink and added Gold Stampin' Embossing powder and heated it with my heat gun. I adhered it to the Gold Glimmer paper with Glue Dots strategically placed behind the embossed image and then adhered the entire piece to the card front using Fast Fuse.
I hope you enjoyed this card and are finding lots of inspiration following the hop. Just click on the next link below to continue along as I promise you won't be disappointed.
