Yesterday I showed you some samples of 3×3 cards. Today, I want to share a video, to show that by simply packaging up these 3×3 cards, you can create a perfect gift. Everyone can always use a simple card to attach to a gift!
Do you ever struggle because you want to give someone a gift, don’t want to spend a lot of money on them, but just want something small, yet decent they will appreciate? Well I often gift box up cards, but lately I have been doing a lot of 3″ x 3″ cards. These are perfect for attaching to gift bags, presents, shower gifts etc. So by giving someone a gift of assorted 3×3 cards is a perfect gift!
They are simple and fast to make. You can wrap a ribbon around them, or you can make a cute little gift box for them as well. On tomorrows blog entry, I will post a video that shows you how to make a nice little gift box to put your cards in.

Our Stamptacular event was held this past Saturday, and we had a lot of fun. Our goal was 30, and we had 28! Perfect day. Everyone went home with 16 cards each, as well as envelopes. There were quite a few door prizes, and a great lunch. If I judge by the noise level and laughter, I would say a great day was had by all.
This was just 1 of the designs we did. Great way to use up all your scrap designer series paper. Use triangles and shape into a tree, then use an embossing folder over the entire card front, so it looks like a quilted tree.
We are already planning our Stamptacular for February. Stay tuned!!! It looks like it may be February 21st, but we may switch it up and have it January 31st. Working on details now.
Woo hoo, 2 days in a row. It may be the same stamp set, but at least I am doing up samples as promised. I really do love this stamp set, and I am going to use it more. REALLY I am, otherwise as per my post yesterday, I am going to have to attend addiction counselling for purchasing stamp sets because I like and might use someday, but they end up “never used” So as yesterday, today’s samples are bookmarks that will be great as toppers on a birthday present, or an addition to a birthday card, and they all use the Flower Patch stamp set, and Flower Fair Die.
I was going through all my stamp sets the other day, and fell in love all over again. The only problem is, is that I am awesome at ordering things I want. I order “my wants” based on my “likes” at that given time. Then the order comes in, it gets put away, I carry on with life. Then seasonal catalogues come in, once again I order “my wants’ based on the infamous “likes” and lo and behold before you know it, I have accumulated stamp sets I forget to even use! GEEZ!!! I do take solace in the fact that I am not the only one, but I am vowing to correct this behaviour. I have pulled out applicable stamp sets, and I am going to get samples done!!
I ordered the Flower Patch stamp set and Flower Fair die based on a card right straight from the 2014-2015 Idea Book & Catalogue. Today, I completed that card. I think it took me all of 3 minutes!!! I always recommend layers and some bling, but every now and then a card comes along that is beautiful without it. This is one of those cards.
Ink colours used were Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Cajun Craze. Crushed Curry and So Saffron, and Pear Pizzaz for leaves.
Oh gosh, has it really been that long since I’ve posted? Time flys when you’re having fun, at least that’s what someone said that obviously gets confused easily. Yes i am still a Stampin’ Up demonstrator, and that’s one of the things I love the most about being my own boss. Summer is always slow, so I traditionally don’t do a whole lot, but my customers all know and have contacted me whenever they need anything. You too can contact me at any time and I’m always here for you. Stay tuned, I’ll get the new Holiday Catalgue uploaded tonight, we can be excited together, because can you even believe I have not been able to sit down and look at it myself??
On a personal level, mom has started radiation treatments again, and hubby is still plugging along with his issues as well. Thankfully he seems to be on the mend, so fingers crossed. My girls are great, and grandchildren are thriving. 2 of them started JK this year, where the heck does the time go???
Okay fabulous people, no more procrastinating for me, off I go. I have workshops booked for this month, and have to get this web page functional again. Thanks for checking in, and thanks for all your emails wishing my family well, it means a lot.
I was at a recent demonstrator swap, and saw these cards. They were so similar to the one I created, yet were done on 4×4 cards instead. They make perfect gift tags, or card enclosures. Thank you Kathy for the idea!
I saw this technique using a different stamp set, but that’s the beauty, it doesn’t matter what stamp set you use( blooming with kindess used here). Use any framelit to stamp the image on, and then just cut in 4 pieces. I think it looks a bit nicer if the pieces are not equal in size. I used dazzling diamonds on the flower, and it really just dazzles!!
I also used World Map stamp set in the background. The gold bakers twine is also new. Because there is a gold element in the twine, I used gold embossing powder for the greeting. The greeting is from teeny tiny wishes, which is one of the most used stamp sets I have. I sponged the edges with early espresso ink, and then used scissors to distress the edges of the one layer (I used natural ivory cardstock)
You can be sure I will be sharing other ideas that you can do with this stamp set.
I am hosting a very special event soon for all my customers and hostesses that have supported me during the last year, and needed a card. I wanted to use the new stamp set from the new Stampin’ Up 2014-2014 Idea Book and catalogue “Flower Patch”, but unfortunately it was on back order at the time. So I used Daydream Medallions instead.
The card is constructed as follows:
Background cardstock is 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 Basic Black
Whisper White is 8-1/4 x 5-1/4 and folder in half
Use the 2-1/2″ circle punch to punch a hole out of the front of the Whisper White
Stamp 3 of the Daydream Medallions using black ink
Punch another 2-1/2″ circle using black cardstock
Use different scallop punches to punch out stamped images
Punch out black circles to mount behind each stamped image
Adhere the stamped images to the black circles
Use dimensionals behind each piece of black cardstock, to pop up your images
Don’t use a dimensional on the largest black, just tape that one directly to the inside of the white cardfront within the pre-punched 2-1/2″ circle
All your images pop up through that circle
Adhere the folded white cardstock to the black cardstock backing.
Tie White bakers twine around the white front and knot. Make a separate bow using white bakers twine and glue over top of the knot.
Adhere a large pearl to the center of the top medallion image.
Don’t you just love this card? I saw it recently on Pinterest, from Susan Itell and just loved it, so of course had to make one.
I chose to add the new twine on mine using same colours as in. I used Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Blackberry Bliss, and Daffodil Delight. Use the heart framelit dies to cut out the heart shape on the top layer of your card. On a smaller piece, and using your stamp-a-ma-jig use the zig zag image from the Work of Art Stamp Set,. After stamping, adhere this piece behind the first layer, so that the zig zags peek through. Use your piercing tool, and the heart template to pierce around the framelit die cut,
