Today’s project is a gift card holder for an XBox gift card. It is much larger than the size of a credit card so I decided to use the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies to create a flat bag or pouch with beautiful paper from the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper pack and the Christmas Pines Photopolymer Bundle.
A quick post today to show you this cute llama card I made with the Fa-La-La-La Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set. He is so adorable! I used the Fiesta Time Framelits Dies to cut him out (you could fussy-cut him if you don’t have the dies) and the banner from the Large Numbers Framelits Dies. I have a birthday card I made with him for my son that I will share in a future post.
I made an error in my last post regarding the white glimmer paper I used. I said it was discontinued but, in fact, it is called Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and it is definitely available. You can click HERE to purchase some. Sorry for the mistake!
Every once in a while, I like to make a Christmas card with non-traditional colors. The gold foil paper included in the Pop Of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper is so festive that I had to use the pack for a holiday card.
Did you receive the November 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit? If not, you can still get refills but, hurry, before they run out! You won’t get the stamp set but you can use another stamp set for the front of the card and then make the “wow!” inside.
When I got my November Paper Pumpkin kit, all kinds of possibilities went through my head. One of my thoughts was that the houses and trees would fit inside a couple of the circular stamps in the Merriest Wishes Clear-Mount Stamp Set (also available in wood) and that I could stamp some cute backgrounds combining the two stamp sets.
Today I’m sharing a technique that some call “Faux Stained Glass”. You basically take a panel of vellum, emboss one side with an image that you can add some color to, and then add the color on the reverse side to get a translucent effect similar to stained glass.
Today’s cards were all designed by Kathleen Innes and we got to make them at our last meeting. My favorite is the last one, which uses the spotlight technique. I love the color combination.
Links to the stamp set(s) or bundle is listed below each card (or click HERE to go to the main store).
Bundle: Cookie Cutter Christmas Photopolymer Bundle (can also purchase stamp set and punch separately)
The Fa-La-La-La Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set came out in the Holiday catalog but you can use the stamps for many occasions. Just omit “THIS HOLIDAY SEASON” from the sentiment on this card and it can be used for a birthday, sympathy or miss you card among others.
I hope you have a nice holiday with loved ones and great food. I have a “Bear Hugs” card lined up for tomorrow :)!
