Botanical Blooms Hostess Gift



On Sunday afternoon I had a fun time hanging out with a wonderful friend of mine, Stacy, who had a workshop.  It was great getting to meet new people and share my love for paper crafting and Stampin' Up!.  As her hostess gift I made her this card with the magazine card holder, pictured below.  I made 5 cards just changing the color of the flower on the front and the scallop circle behind the happy birthday. Thank you Dawn Griffith for giving me the idea for it.  

When I first made the cards they looked kinda plain to me and knew I had to add something to them.  They were already assembled, so I knew I couldn't add embossing using a folder, although that would have looked great.  I went to the stamp set Botanical Blooms #140757 that coordinates with paper and framelits and found the little flower stamp.  It was perfect, because I could add it when the card was already put together.  It is amazing how one little stamp can make a difference on a card.  This stamp set and framelits are offered as a bundle #140819 for a 15% discount.

For the cards I used Wild Washabi #108641 as the base for all the cards.  

The base is cut at 5 1/5" x 8 1/5" scored at 4 1/4"

Cajun Craze #119684 cut at 5 7/8" x 4 1/8"

Whisper White #100730 is cut at 5 1/4" x 4".  

I used the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper #140583 on the front of the card and to decorate the box.

Baby Shower Card and Gift Card Holder


Yesterday I had the honor of attending a baby/adoption shower for my friend Amanda.  Nathan, Amanda and their 3 children are adopting a beautiful girl, Joanna, from China.  We are all so excited for them and wanted to show them how much they are loved.  

I had so much fun making the card, gift card holder and tag for the bag.  I got my idea for the card from another demonstrator Debbie Henderson and the matchbox gift card holder from Mary Fish.  I love how Stampin' Up! demonstrator share their ideas.  You can learn so much from others.  

To make all three items I used the stamp set Something For Baby #134030, Teeny Tiny Wishes #127802 and Hardwood #133035.  The colors I used were Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron.  I also used the Baby's First Framelits #133735.  



I got finished the card and gift card holder and realized I forgot to buy a bag to put them in, of course it was right before the shower.  I went looking in my stash of gift bags and found this cute little bag that was the same color as the card.  How lucky was that!!!!  The scallops on the bottom of the tag were made with a retired border punch.  


This is the front of the gift card holder.  I will definitely be making more of these, as you can decorate it for any occasion.  


 The card fits perfectly inside.  I couldn't have found a better design on the gift card as their  little one is a year old.
