Thanksgiving Card with gift card holder

 

Thank you/ Thanksgiving Card

I used the Handmade Wishes stamp set for the greeting on this card.

I tried several coloring techniques with the Leaf Fall embossing folder but liked the embossed look without coloring the best:

.

.

I used a combination of gold and copper embossing on the greeting.  The outside is gold, the inside is copper.

.

.  Sorry, I still can’t see the difference.  

Sigh……  it’s one of those days!  The software I use to add the watermark froze up and the camera isn’t catching the colors.  But you need to see the Handmade Wishes stamp set before it goes away and, more importantly, you need to see this die:

.

This Mini Pocket Envelope Die!  It is the perfect size for gift cards and look at all the other dies that are included:

.

A miniature oval, branch of leaves die, scalloped rectangle, tags and tiny dies to punch circles or a slot for twine or ribbon!  And check out the little bow you can make with two of the dies.  You need this die – trust me – no more manually cutting and scoring to make a gift card holder, it is all done with the die.

Case The Creator #7, Twisted Ribbon Card & Shoebox with Joy

Hello Stamping Friends,

Let’s look at a technique called the ‘Twisted Ribbon Card Technique’!   By cutting strips of designer series paper and laying them at diagonals it really looks like twisted ribbon.

.

Our creator is Karen Bouchikas of Karen’s Stamping Place.  Here is a pdf of the card cuts with a link to the you tube by Karen.

Case The Creator #7 printable pdf file

Here is a screen print of the pdf file.  Because the following is a screen print the you tube link will not work directly from the blog post.    You need to click on the pdf file and then click on the youtube link — the link works from the pdf file.  Thank you to the dear follower who left a comment to point that out!  I do apologize for the confusion.

.   

For my card I used the Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper for the ribbon strips and the left side panel on a mat of Calypso Coral and a base of Thick Whisper White.  The two little butterflies on the front are cut from one of the 6 x 6 pieces of designer series paper.  The butterfly on the inside of the card is stamped with the Best Butterflies stamp set using Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Fresh Freesia.  The little flowers are from the Fun Flowers Resin Shapes.

  I don’t recognize the labels you used for the Happy Birthday?!

They are punches, Sal.  The Calypso Coral background is the Decorative Circle punch from the Annual Catalog and the top white shape is the Handmade Tag Punch.  The ‘happy birthday’ greeting is from the Shaded Summer stamp set.  The inside greeting is from Pansy Patch.

Check out another way I used the Handmade Tag Punch with the Handmade Wishes stamp set.

.  

Did you hand draw the scrolly?  It kind of looks like what you put under your name when you sign things. 

No, Sal, that is part of the stamp set!  Everything you see is part of the stamp set; let me show you:

 

That set is a must have set!


Let’s see what the rest of my amazing stamping group did for the Case The Creator card.  For those of you who are new to following Stampalosopher, the fourth Tuesday of the month I hold a Zoom meeting at 11:30AM and we share our swap cards and what we made for that month’s Case The Creator card.  I  send out the instructions with the video link about two weeks in advance.  Send me your email and you are welcome to join us!


Heather’s birthday card with balloons is just awesome!  With light strips on dark strips the ribbon really looks like one piece folded all the way down.

Jo’s card with the gold vellum and gold sequin trim was a card fit for a king!

.   .   


Joy did a criss cross with her strips and put them on the left side – so unique!

.  


Sharon also crisscrossed her strips and had such fun she made three cards:

Send me a picture if you make a twisted ribbon card and I can add it to this post!  That is the nice thing about blogs!  I want to make a twisted ribbon Christmas card so check back next month to see if it is posted.  I kept waiting to post hoping I would get it done but finally decided I had better just add it at a later date.


Joy Meadows hosted our shoebox swap and taught us how to fold paper to make a kimono!  Aren’t her creations beautiful?!


For my swap card I used the Wonderful World designer series paper from the Sale A Bration free offering:

 

Except for the greeting and the inside, it is an exact case of Linda Bedinger’s card on Ink and Ingenuity.  The flowers are fussy cut from the Designer Series Paper.  I loved the little bitty flowers on the side matching the great big flowers on the main front.   I would do this again if I had a large image and small images on designer series paper!  I did several different inside greetings:

 

The front ‘A little hello…’, the ‘Happy Birthday’ and the ‘Thank You’ are all from Pansy Patch.  The ‘Congratulations’ is from Happiness Abounds.

Recipe for Wonderful World swap card:

  • Base:  Thick Basic White, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Front Mat:  Pear Pizzaz, 4 across X 4 1/4 down
  • Front strips and Inside Mat:  Mossy Meadow
    • 1/4 X 4 1/4, vertical strip on front
    • 1/4 X 4, horizontal strip on front
    • 4 X 5 1/4, Inside Mat
  • Inside Layer:  Basic White, 3 1/2 X 4 3/4
  • Side Strips:  Wonderful World Designer Series Paper
    • 3/4 X 4 1/4 for the front
    • 3/4 X 4 3/4 for the inside
  • Flowers:  Wonderful World Designer Series Paper, fussy cut each
  • Ink:  Mossy Meadow
  • Stamp Sets:  Pansy Petal and Happiness Abounds
  • Embellishments:  Various to go with the flowers

By using a generic greeting on the front, I could include both the Happy Birthday and Thank You in my swap so folks had a choice for their greeting.

That’s all for today!  Come on back when I post the projects we did the next month.
