Thinking of You

I just finished making this card tonight. I got a chance to use my Big Shot and that is always fun. I found the inspiration for this card on Patty Bennett’s site but the card was actually made by Barb Thomas. If you would like to see the original, click here and scroll down. I knew that I wanted to use different colors and you wouldn't believe how long it took me to decide what colors I wanted and what went together. I'm happy with it and think I would like to try some other combinations as well. I love the Stampin' Up! punches and you will find that I always use at least one for every project I do. For this card I actually used four of them!

Here are the supplies I used:

Paper: Garden Green, Lovely Lilac and Brilliant Blue cardstock, Flock Together Designer Series Paper

Ink: Basic Black Classic

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes

Accessories: Scallop Oval punch, Trio Flower punch, Large Oval punch, Eyelet Border punch, Big Shot machine, Sizzlits Little Leaves, Sizzix Embosslits Simple Flower, gold brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Piercer, Snail adhesive

Matchbook Gift Card Holder

I just finished making this card tonight and am going to give it to a friend for her birthday tomorrow. I saw this idea at Andrea Walford’s site. She has so many wonderful ideas on her site and I check it daily. I made a few minor changes to the card but if you would like to see her version as well as a video tutorial, visit Andrea’s site here.

This card is supposed to resemble a matchbook, don’t know if you can tell by the pictures. There are two staples at the bottom but I covered those because I didn’t want to stamp my sentiment directly on the cardstock. I used an envelope inside to place the gift card into.

I have to prepare for my parent conferences so I will post the supplies for my card tomorrow. Click here if you would like to place a Stampin’ Up! order!
Here are the supplies I used:
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, and Pink Passion cardstock, Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Crazy For Cupcakes
