Thank You Gift Card Holder

I hope you enjoyed the Blog Hop on Sunday!  Hawaii Ink sure does have a lot of talent!

Here is a little more information on the project I created for the blog hop.

Thank You Gift Card 1Here is how the gift card holder started out before making it extra awesome.  I used Coastal Cabana cardstock and cut it out to be 9-1/4″ by 5-1/4″.  Then, with the cardstock running in landscape orientation, I scored at the 1-1/2″ and 6″ marks.  Turning the cardstock into portrait orientation, I scored at 1/2″ on one side and 1/2″ on the opposite side.  I cut at the 1/2″ mark down to the 6″ mark and adhered those extra little flaps down with sticky strip.  Then, I stamped the big, beautiful “Thank You” in white craft ink using the photopolymer set “Another Thank You”.

Thank You Gift Card 2I then added some Strawberry Slush stretch ruffle trim and a little bit of Winter Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper.

Thank You Gift Card 5To the inside, I used sticky strip to adhere a 3-3/4″ by 3-1/4″ piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock, which was scored at 3/8″ to secure to to the inside top flap of the gift card holder.  That way, when you open it up…

Thank You Gift Card 4…the gift card slides up!  Very cool!

Thank You Gift Card 6You can adhere the gift card with a glue dot so it stays in place.

I hope you enjoyed this project!

Sneak Peek Into New Catalog

So, I finally received my preview products and had a chance to play with some of them.  I made the following products for my downline meeting.  Most of these items will not be available for purchase until after June 1st when the new catalog goes active.

I made a card, an 8.5″ x 11″ scrapbook page, and a purse.  I have to admit, I thought the new In-Colors were just “okay” when I saw them online, but WOW, they are very vibrant, fun colors!  I really, really love the Gumball Green!

This card was stamped on the Shimmery White paper (101910).  The large flower is from the Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set (126006).  I stamped it using the Gumball Green stamp pad (126861) – by the way, the new redesigned stamp pads are to die for!  They have great coverage!  I then used the Summer Starfruit ink pad (126991) to ink up and stamp using Betsy’s Blossoms Standard Stampin’ Around Wheel (126943).  If you are going to stamp with the wheel, you need the Stampin’ Around Standard Handle (102971).  I also highly recommend the Stampin’ Around Wheel Guide (104834), which is unfortunately retiring at the end of this month, so get it while you can!  I finished the card off with Floral District Designer Series Paper (126919) and a strip of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (126872).

I am really in love with this scrapbooking page!  I used Summer Starfruit cardstock (126839) as a base.  I then stamped flowers in the matching Summer Starfruit ink (126991), again using Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set.  I finished with a bird from the same set stamped in Primrose Petals ink (126858).  Look at the great coverage the new ink pad gave me on that bird!  I used more Floral District Designer Series Paper (126919) for this page on the left hand side, and used Primrose Petals card stock (126841) as a matte for the picture of my beautiful daughter, Olivia.

Last, but certainly not least, I made this adorable purse using the new Big Shot Petite Purse die (125606).  I decided on my new favorite, Gumball Green, to make the purse.  I then cut the top portion using Floral District Designer Series Paper (126919) in Primrose Petals, and finished it off with a neat little bow of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (126872).  When making 3D projects such as this cute purse, Sticky Strip (104294) is a must to keep it all together!

I hope you have enjoyed getting a glimpse of what’s to come in the new catalog!  Trust me, it won’t disappoint!
