Alternative Use for Layers of Gratitude

The other day I share with you the February Paper Pumpkin Kit (Layers of Gratitude) and the sample project from the kit.  I saw that someone on Pinterest (sorry I don’t recall the person’s name to give proper credit to) used the negative piece from the felt letters to create an awesome gift bag.  Here is my take on this great kit and how to extend the life of this kit!

Layers of Gratitude

My February Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived the other day and initially I was not too thrilled (I will admit that).  However, I made a copy of the sample project from the kit.  After making this, I am now in LOVE and see the many other possibilities.  I think my favorite item in this kit is the FABULOUS felt letters.  This kit comes with enough to make EIGHT of these cards and EIGHT of these boxes! Crazy, right?

 

Here’s a look at the one I made. First up, the accordion fold card.

038

This project is so bright and cheery!  Now if the accordion fold card wasn’t enough, check this out.  That stinkin’ cute little accordion card folds up and fits inside the cute box that comes in the kit.

039

And once you’ve tucked the card inside, there is Baker’s Twine included in the kit to wrap up the box and tie it in a bow. Those who know me well enough will say that it is all about the presentation and this is the best way to say THANKS!

Spring Fling Blog Hop

header

Welcome to the Team Stamp It Spring Fling Blog Hop! Hopefully, you already checked out Lori Mueller’s awesome creation, but if not, you can head there afterwards!  Today’s creation was inspired from page 22 of the Occasions Catalog.  When I first saw this catalog, this was the first stamp set that I would be purchasing.  I love trees and there is something very special about this stamp set, at least that is my opinion.  A good friend of mine had surgery a weeks ago and this card was made just with her in mind!

033

Here is the simple sentiment on the inside; tone on tone so it is kind of hard to see.

034

I hope you are enjoying today’s hop and continue through the rest of the posts!

A Happy Thing – Take 4

Two week’s ago I had a second job interview and I didn’t know that I would be meeting with all four of the company executives, so once again this was a rush thank you card CASEd from Pinterst, and the creator is Laura Mackie.  The company I interviewed with is for a fruit growing operation and I thought it would be very fitting to use the A Happy Thing stamp set.  This stamp set is offered as one of many products that you can get for FREE.  It’s simple – one free product for every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping).

UDI Color Challenge #205

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #205

When I first saw this week’s color combination, I immediately thought of the 4th of July or Veteran’s Day.  So I made a birthday card kind of masculine but it need a pop of color and that is why I added the Real Red flowers and rhinestones!  Very simple and fast card to make but stunning all the same!

You’re Sweet Berry Basket

I finally got around to using the new Berry Basket die.  This is the cutest basket for holding a little treat.  In this case, a cello bag filled with Hershey’s Kisses.  I lined the inside of the basket with DSP from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  I think the Tea Lace Paper Doilies and Bow Builder Punch really add the final touch to this project, don’t you think?

A Happy Thing – take 2

Earlier in the week I had a job interview with several people with a fruit growing operation and I thought it would be very fitting to use the A Happy Thing stamp set.  I shared with you the other day my other unique thank you card that I made.  Remember that this stamp set is offered as one of many products that you can get for FREE.  It’s simple – one free product for every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping).

 

022

A quick note about this card.  I stamped the lemon image several times on the Whisper White cardstock then ran the Hello You Thinlits Die through the Big Shot to create a “peek-a-boo” of the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I wasn’t too thrilled with the look, so I ran a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Hello You Thinlits Die through the Big Shot and fit the “thanks” into the Whisper White piece using some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Personally, I love how this card turned out and hope that I have inspired you to create something similar.  I did not take a photo of the envelope that I stamped, but it looks just like the other one I did.  Click here to see it.
