Christmas Money Holders

I saw a video by Dawn Griffith, https://dawnsstampingthoughts.net/2019/12/birthday-bonanza-envelope-gift-card-holder-video.html and got busy creating money holders with her idea.

The paper is from Echo Park, Celebrate Christmas pack. The greeting is from The Stamps of Life, elves2stamp. I used Sizzix Scalloped circle dies and SU Stitched Shapes dies for cutting the greeting. The ribbon is from our stash.

This was exactly what I needed today, so I was excited to see her video with such a simple holder.

Autumn Leaves

Cuttlebug Mania – Autumn Colors

The challenge at Cuttlebug Mania is to use Autumn colors. (Nuts – I was too late). I used a stencil called Welcome Fall by Echo Park, sponged with Distress Oxides – Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple and Squeezed Lemonade. The large maple leaf is a retired die by Spellbinders sponged with the same Distress Oxides plus Carved Pumpkin and Barn Door. The small leaves with matching die and sentiment are from Beautiful Autumn by Sunny Studio. The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Rusty Hinge. I’m also entering this the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and Simon’s Work It Wednesday.

Fancy Fold Easter Blessings

Butterfly Easter Blessings

I love fancy fold cards. I watched a video, by Connie Stewart (
https://simplysimplestamping.com/fancy-fold-easter-card-simple-stamping/ ) on Saturday and began making a card using supplies I had on hand.

I used Jelly Bean Green cardstock by Gina K Designs for the card base. I used Echo Park Spring Fling Patterned Paper. The yellow piece on the flap and the circle is Wild Dandelion, also from Gina K Designs. The butterfly image is long ago retired from Stampin’Up called Butterfly Prints with matching punch. I found a sentiment in the set Springtime Baskets from Gina K Designs, illustrated by Claire Brennan. This was a fun card to make.
