Hanukkah Blog Hop



 Gift Card Holder & Greeting Card








Welcome to my blog and the  Hanukkah Blog Hop.  I hope you have had a chance to visit the other participants’ blogs as well.
My Hanukkah card this year is actually a Gift Card holder.  I have a lot of nieces and nephews that I buy Hanukkah gifts for every year and they live all over the country. Also, they’re in their teens, so they want to shop for the things they like. I found this great template that will hold the gift card and will also be a greeting as well. 
I used an older Stampin’ Up stamp set,”Festive Hanukkah” and some retired Designer paper that really fit the festive mood.  The colors I used were Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Rich Razzelberry and Marina Mist on a Very Vanilla Background.  Candles were decorated with a gold pen and gold painted gems were added to the swirls
     



I hope your holidays are joyful, no matter which holidays you celebrate and have a really great 2018!  Thank you for stopping by.

Bonus Days! Cool & Juicy Workshop




Hi! 
Don't forget it’s Still Stampin’ Up Bonus Days till the end of the month. For every $50 purchase you make in the month of July, you will receive a $5 coupon to spend in August! Great time to stock up on card stock, envelopes and other basics before the launch of our Winter/Holiday mini-catalog next month! 

I'm in the process of planning another workshop for August.  In the meantime, I thought I would share some pics from the last one. We used the July Paper Pumpkin kit and part of the April one. 



From top to bottom: a gift bag, made according to the instructions from the July kit “Thanks A Melon.”  Next, a birthday card made up of pieces included in the kit.  I cut up a gift bag, cards and the coordinating tissue and created a gate fold card.  Colors used were Emerald Envy, Melon Mambo & Lemon-lime Twist. The bottom card is from April’s kit using our watercolor pencils, watercolor paper and washi tape. 




Also, I needed to create a birthday card for a special friend.  This one uses a Double-Z format and fancy-edge scissors on the watermelon slices.  Great fun and it was for a great guy.  

Thanks for coming by!  Sign up for my blog or email me to get update on my next workshop dates and Projects.  If you want to join the fun - sign up and get a special gift in addition to $125 worth of products for just $99!

Daisy Delight Mother's Day Gift

I have to admit that that the new Daisy Delight stamp set is going to be my favorite set from our new catalog and idea book (live on 6/1, but available now!)  I make a stationery set for my Sister-In-Law and my nieces for Mother’s Day every year.  This year as stationery set from Caroline Helwigh Wright of Caroline Creates, a demonstrator of North Shields, England, caught my eye. (http://www.craftycarolinecreates.com/2015/06/june-blog-hop.html)

I used several different sets, including the set she used, Garden In Bloom, as well as Fresh Fruit (retired) and Daisy Delight..  I will post these photos at a later time.  They turned out so cute.  Each set contains 4 very simple single layer note cards, gift cards and gift tags.  In addition, I covered a blank book with hand stamped paper and adorned it with ribbon.  Colors used were Dapper Denim, Curry Crush and Garden Green.. 
The cards are super simple and artsy, I think..  There are a minimum of products used, so it is also economical..  Great idea for a hostess gift, too!  
If you like the Daisy Delight set, consider the bundle, you get the coordinating punch and save 10%.  Also available right now are faceted gems, which make great centers, the coordinated DSP and a specially coordinated Card Stock pack of 3 colors. 
Stay tuned for an update with dimensions for creating this set and additional photos.
