Sprinkles of LIfe Gift Card Holder

We made this in club this past week. We used the diagonal score board to make the outer envelope. It's perfectly sized to hold a gift card. I like the idea of presenting it like this. I think it looks pretty.

 Here's the insert. The cupcake top is popped up. The top of the tag is punched with the Scallop Tag Topper punch. The cupcake top is punched with the Tree Builder punch.
 You could also close it up to give. If you slide the band up like this, the envelope flap will tuck under the band. The tag is on the opposite side of the envelope than if I was presenting it open like above.
Stamps: Sprinkles of Life.

DSP is retired Moonlight pack. If you missed it, I have some available for sale. I also have some of the retired ribbon available as part of a ribbon share (2 yds ea of each of the 5 in colors). Let me know and I'll hook you up.

Sprinkles of Life Ice Cream Cone CAS Card

Here's a clean and simple card made with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and Tree Builder punch. It's one of the cards we're making at this week's classes. We're also making a pop-up card and a gift card holder using the same stamps and punch.
Colors: Soft Suede, Pool Party, So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White

Class tomorrow, Tuesday, at 6:30pm is almost full. Saturday at 10:00am has more spots. There's still room for you in either class if you want to come. It's also the start of a new round of stamp club if you want to join. Class is open to stamp club members and non-members. Just let me know. 

Check back later in the week to see the other projects.

Guy Greetings - Quick Present Wrap

Happy Father's Day!

Hope you've had a nice day. I needed to wrap a present for my husband and didn't have any appropriate wrapping paper - nor did I have time to create some elaborate packaging. So, I grabbed a piece of copy paper (which is why it's bright gold - the only color I could find besides white) and stamped some images from Guy Greetings. I wrapped the present with that paper and added some ribbon at the bottom

If I'd had more time I probably would have blinged it up a bit, but I don't think it looks too bad - especially for how quickly it went together. The weight of the new envelope paper would be perfect for this project.

Sprinkles of Life and Tree Builder Punch

Check out these cute projects made with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and Tree Builder punch.

Projects made with these items from the new catalog are popping up all over the internet. I can see why. It's a cute set with a variety of elements that give it a lot of versatility and cute sayings to tie in with the images. Cupcakes, trees, ice cream cones, and clouds. Plus a portion of the purchase price from Sprinkles of Life goes to help the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Here's the Sprinkles of Life set. See what I mean about the cute sayings?

And here's the punch. I'm already envisioning other things I can do with it.
These images are from Stampin' Up! They've provided several catalog images to help demonstrators with our business. Periodically I'll share some of these projects with you.

TSSC 365 - Flower Card

EDIT 6/16/15: For some reason my design team sample didn't make it on the TSSC blog with the others. I just went ahead and linked it the way you will when you play along. So if you look for it there, it's underneath with the challenge entries.

Here's my design team sample for this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge. I used the faux suede technique on the flower.


Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper (DSP): In Color Envelope Paper (Watermelon Wonder)
Big Shot: Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder (retired)
Punch: 3/4" circle, Pansy Punch (on the weekly deals through tonight), and a punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack (retired)
Sorry about the retired items. You could use the Decorative Dots embossing folder instead of Perfect Polka Dots ef. There are a few options for the retired punch - 1/2" circle punch would be a little bigger, but still good; a Brights Designer Button; or if you used Delightful Dijon instead of Daffodil Delight, a 2015-2017 In Color Blossom Accent would look cute.

Here's this week's sketch. Use it to inspire you! I was pretty literal with it.
You can link your project and see the rest of the design team samples at the Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge site. Hope you'll play along this week!
