A Big Thank You Gift Card Holder

Yes, I did make another Gift Card Holder. Can you have too many? I don't think so. Besides they all have their purpose, right? I hope your Sunday will be a great one. Ours has started off with sunny skies and cool temperatures. I'm sure to get some more rain this afternoon though. It's that time of year.

So, I'll get on with it.

Stamp Sets & Dies - A Big Thank You stamp set; Rooted In Nature stamp set; Thank You Thinlits; Nature's Roots Framelits. Labels to Love stamp set (You can save 10% by buying the Bundles).
Card Base - Blackberry Bliss Cardstock - 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2" & 9 1/4".
Card Front & Flap Front - Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (DSP) - 3 1/2" x 4" & 1 1/2" x 4".
Inside Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4".
Leaf Sprig and Sentiment Label - Scraps of Whisper White Cardstock.
Grapefruit Grove Mat - Grapefruit Grove Cardstock - 1" x 3".
Thank You Die Cuts - Blackberry Bliss Cardstock - Cut 3 - 3 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Ink - Blackberry Bliss & Grapefruit Grove
Embellishments - Faceted Dots & Nature's Twine (Fresh Fig).
Classic Label Punch & 1" Circle Punch.

I started with the smaller pieces. I stamped the Leaf Sprig and sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White with Blackberry Bliss ink. I cut the Leaf Sprig out with the appropriate Nature's Roots Framelit. I cut the sentiment out with the Classic Label Punch.  Then I cut 3 Thank You Die cuts from Blackberry Bliss Cardstock. using a sponge and my Tombow Liquid Glue I Layered up the Thank You's. I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Sentiment Label to the Label Mat. Again, I Adhered the Labels with Liquid Glue to the Leaf Sprig. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the "To & From" and the "You are the best" with Blackberry Bliss onto the Inside Layer. The small Leaf Skeletons were stamped with Blackberry Bliss and Grapefruit Grove Inks above and below the sentiment on the Inside Layer.


Adhere the Inside Layer to the Card Base with Liquid Glue.
Wrap 21" of Fresh Fig Twine around the Gift Card Front and secure the ends with Mini Glue Dots.
Adhere the Gift Card Front to the Card Base with Liquid Glue.
Adhere the Flap Front to the Card Base with Liquid Glue.

Adhere the Leaf Sprig/Sentiment Label to the Car Front with Dimensionals.
Adhere the Thank You Stack to the Card Front with Liquid Glue in a bottle with a fine tip.
Add some Faceted Dots to finish the look.

RemARKably Creative Blog Hop

Welcome to the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour!

This month we are showcasing new products. I have been in a Christmas in July frame of mind. That's because I am addicted to Christmas. You can never start too early when you are an addict like me. So today I want to share a card that I made using the new Mistletoe Season stamp set. This is a Two-Step stamp set. That means there are stamps that are meant to be layered. In this case there is a background mistletoe stamp and a detail mistletoe stamp. But really when I was looking at them, they could be used all on their own.

Cookie Cutter Christmas Gift Bag

Happy Thursday Everyone,

I hope your summer has been a good one so far. Mine has been super busy. We have been working on some home repairs and I have not been able to post very often as a result. I have a darling little Gift Bag to share with you today. The one on the left is made with mostly current product ( The Red Glimmer Paper is Retired). The one on the right is my first project and it is all Retired DSP on the bag. The instructions are for the bag on the left. This is a great size for a couple of large home made cookies or I could see it filled with some travel size toiletries. That's two great gift ideas. It measures 3 5/8"W x 4 3/4"H x2"D and has been made with a 6" x 12" Piece of Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (DSP). So you can get 2 bags from one sheet. The Trim on top is a 1 1/2"W x 12"L strip of the Under The Mistletoe DSP. The Ginger cookies are Thick Whisper White Stamped with Soft Suede Ink. I used some scraps of Red Glimmer Paper for the Bows & Buttons. The Label and the Circle are Whisper White Cardstock Stamped with Real Red Ink and Shaded Spruce Ink. All of the products I used will be listed below for you to purchase if you so desire. I did make a quick little video just to show how easy this little bag is to Make.
