Gift Card Holder using Stampin’ Up! products

This gift card holder is one of the first things I ever made when I joined Stampin’ Up!  My darling friend from Texas, Jackie Ross shared it with her lovely mum Val and Val shared how to make them at my scrapbooking crop.  It is such a simple idea and can decorated in so many ways and its a very special way to celebrate someone whilst giving them a store gift card.

I used the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts Stamp set which is adorable and perfect for colouring with the Stampin’ Blends.

I stamped and embossed the roof of the flower cart onto vellum and fussy cut around it to add some fun dimension.  Wait till you see inside….

The holder is simply a piece of 6 x 12″ cardstock, scored along the full length at 4″ and then at 3″, 6″ & 9″ for each section.

I used two of our punches to create little peek-a-boo windows and lined up some images and greetings so they showed through the windows.

I used the little tiny slit die in the Lots to Love Box Framelits so that it holds a standard store gift card.  There is room to handwrite your own greeting on two of the cards and I even stamped and coloured the back.

The Lemon Lime Twist ribbon adds a lovely pop of colour.

I love how it turned out and who wouldn’t love receiving a gift card presented in this way?

Butterfly Basics from Stampin’ Up! #GDP44

This weeks challenge over at the Global Design Project  is to case the designer and the designer is Steffi Helmschrott from Germany. Steffi has the most beautiful style and is also an Artisan Design team member for Stampin Up. That means she is on a team of fantastically talented crafters who make projects using Stampin Up supplies which the company use to share and promote its product range. Only one or two people to be Artisans from each country so its quite an accolade and also quite intimidating to case someone so talented.

But here is my entry using the Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Butterfly Thinlits.

Butterfly Basics #GDP44

I used the fluttering embossing folder to create the embossed butterfly background.  I stamped a panel of very vanilla cardstock with stamps from the Butterfly basics stamp set in black in so that they were visible through the medium butterfly die cut from Butterfly thinlits.

I then stuck the intricate die cut butterfly in the centre across its body so that the wings were raised and show the stamping below.

It needed a pop of very vanilla along the edges so I added a strip of the border from the new Flourish Thinlits.  I used the sentiment from Weather Together and the new punch called Classic Label.

Here is Steffi’s card which you have to case this week…#GDP44 Case the designer Steffi Helmschrott
