Purse gift card holders

I love my topnote die for my bigshot.  These are super simple purse gift card holders that I made for upcoming craft fair at Walpole VFW on March 5th.

Here is the inside, I just cut down a cello bag to hold gift card.

It's tea time

I made a few of these for upcoming craft fair I am doing at Walpole VFW on March 5th.  It is a teabag holder and the stamp set I used is Stampin up's morning cup.

Really easy to make:

dimensions for cs are: 3.5 x 9.75
score at 3.25 and 6.5
then cut on outside flap on diagonal to make pocket.

I love Coffee!

 Just wanted to share some cards I made with left overs in my scrapbox.    I am a huge coffee fan, okay along with stamps... I am also addicted to coffee.
I used chocolate chip craft ink and then put clear embossing powder over and heat set.  Much easier to watercolor embossed images.  I used my favorite method of watercoloring with markers.  You just scribble markers onto stamp case and pick up color with aquapainter.  I like to use this method to color in images while at my boys activities to keep me busy.

I haven't figured out a sentiment to use, but makes a nice little stationary set gift.  The stamp set is from Stampin Up's occasion mini and is level 1 hostess set called "slice of life".

extreme snowboarder and no valentine

Happy Valentines Day!  I have no hearts or valentine card to show today, but today is also my brother's birthday.  So I am sharing the card I made him using extreme snowboarder stamp which you can get for FREE during sale-a-bration.   I used sponging with torn paper to get the effects of snow and mountains and embossed the snowboarder in black.

Birthday cards just in "case"

I was in a birthday card swap and this one done by my friend and fellow demo Robin Johnson.

As I was inspired by her card I came up with two cards using the same color palette but different stamp set.    I used "a slice of life" stamp set which is a hostess set in the Occasion mini catalog.

Post it note "bliss"

So sorry have not been able to post anything for a week.  We have been hit with snowstorms every week and I am the one to have to clear it all and stay on top of ice dams.  I have a craft fair coming up on March 5th at Walpole VFW from 10 am- 3 pm.  So, also have been crafting for that to get things done to sell.

My share today is one of the items I am making for craft fair- post it note holders with a pen.  I used a great sale-a-bration stamp set called Bliss.   Dawn Griffith did a great video tutorial on how to make them- super easy using up some of my scraps.
