Gift Card Holder

Thanks Stampin Up for this great Gift Card Holder pattern. It is very simple and easy to make, and you can make it for any occasion.

Cards - Just Beachy

My hostess for Saturdays workshop asked for a Gel Card, so I came up with this one. I used 1 3/8' punch to make the circles, and the fish from Just Beachy set worked perfectly. The girls were all very pleased with their creations they took home. I hope they keep this set for us in next years catalogue.

Japanese Paper

My Mum gave me a selection of beautiful Japanese paper she bought on a recent holiday to Japan, so it was only fitting that I should design her birthday card using some of it. It co-ordinated beautifuly with Pretty In Pink, Rose Red and So Saffron card stock. She loved it.

Cards - Acetate

Now that we have White Stazon Ink, it is perfect to use on Acetate to create a great christmas card. I used elegant eggplant and lovely lilac markers to give a two colour effect on the stamp, to match the cardstock I chose. I was really pleased with the final result.

Cards - Just Beachy

Just Beachy is a very versatile stamp set. Here I have only used the Thongs/Flip Flops, combining it with a lovely verse I found on the internet and printed on Vellum Card stock. The colours I have used are Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze.

Cards - Staring You

World Cardmaking Day - Special this month is 20% off this stamp set when you purchase either of the Simply Send Card Elements sets (page 140 & 141 in the IB&C). This set is Starring You, which I have combined with Windsor Knot DSP and co-ordinating card colours.
