I am sharing also sharing one of the cards we created in our class a couple of weeks ago where we created a fun Gift Card Holder with the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.

We teamed it up with the Ornate Style Stamp Set which goes with the DSP. The flower has been coloured & blended with Stampin’ Blends.

The piece of Whisper White has been embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, layered onto a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock & then to a Terracotta Tile Base Card.

The Gift Card Holder is actually part of a piece of DSP which has been scored & folded to create the Holder. The top of the Holder was partially punched with a Circle Punch. I’ve stamped a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Early Espresso Ink, layered onto a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock & adhered to the inside of the DSP.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set.

We are half way there with Day 6 & today it is a Gift Card Holder.  Who doesn’t love these around Christmas?

Not only do we get to see the Holder but it is also Day 6 of the  Aussie version of the “12 Days of Christmas”.

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me – 

A Cockie in a Bottlebrush Tree,

2 flying Doctors,

3 Drovers watching

4 working dogs

5 golden Ducks

6 Boomers hopping


My card today is yet another created in one of our classes a few weeks ago.  I actually Dashing-Deer-2---Insidecreated this card from a sketch I had saved some time ago & then when I went looking for something on Pinterest, can you believe it, up popped my card.  I thought I was seeing things until I recognized a few things were a little different.  Has that happened to you?  I will be honest & say it has a couple of times to me.  Scary!

289. Merry & Bright – Gift Card Holder – Hearts Come Home


Gift Card Holder

Along with Christmas Cards, we have been creating Gift Card Holders.  Let’s face it, these Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP, Colorful Seasons, Gift Card Holderslittle things can come in quiet handy this time of the year.  In fact, they may be used throughout the year for all occasions.  I have created this Holder a few years back for another class but thought it time to revisit.

For our Holders, we went with the Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper – love, love this paper.  The week previous, everyone was give the option of choosing their favourite colour to create their Gift Card Holders.  I love it that everyone’s was different.

Once the Belly Band had been created, we used the snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits  to create our main focal point by sponging a die cut circle, die cutting the Gift-Card-HOlder1snowflake with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits & then inlaying it back in with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  We finished them off with a large Rhinestone (retired).

The ladies enjoyed their class & were tickled “pink” with their Gift Card Holders.

292. Gift Card Holder – Seasonal Layers Thinlits

Gift Card Holder, Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Free Tutorial, Vicky Wright, Stampin' Up!


Merry & Bright


This is one of the cards we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday.  The ladies loved it – simple but with a bit of a WOW when you open it, as it has a Pop Up Gift Card Holder inside.  We actually created one similar to this one a couple of years ago in our Technique Class.  It is always good to revisit older creations & revamp them.  Mind you, with the DSP we used on our card, you could use it for any occasion – just omit Santa, the trees & change out the sentiment.

Be Merry DSP is from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue while the stamp set “Hearts Come Hearts-Come-Come---Gift-CarHome” is from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  The stamp set is also available in a Bundle.

You can find the free tutorial for the card & the holder inside by clicking on the link below which includes all measurements (metric & imperial) as well as a list of supplies used to create by card.

Be sure to check back in a couple of days as I have another Gift Card Holder to share with you.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’




288. Merry & Bright – Hearts Come Home – Pop Up Gift Card Holder


Gift Card Holder…

One of our cards we created in Crafty Creations a couple of weeks ago was a Christmas Card  Gift Holder.  I did find this on Google which led me back to Kay Kalthoff.  Those that know me I am not one to watch videos or follow instructions.  I sort of sit down & work things out for myself.  I did watch a bit of this video, but then went off on my own & ended up with this result!

Me being me, I did change it a little, including the papers & the design a little.  The class loved it!

Last Day…

… to order from the Retiring List

To celebrate the current Stampin’ Up! Catalogue, I thought I would share with you the box of cards I created again using Retiring Products.  The idea come about after creating my card for the current Sunny Challenges challenge, which still has one more week to run, so it is not too late to link your creation with Mr Linky.

If you remember I created a box of 3 x 3 Gift Cards using Nature Walk & the Regal Inks which are retiring, a couple of days ago, so this time I thought I do would a similar sort of thing using the retiring Subtles Colours.

I created 4 cards – 2 x Regal Rose & 2 x Pretty in Pink.  All cards have a different greeting/sentiment on them. The box has touches of Pretty in Pink.  The word “Cards” on the box was created in MDS & printed in Certainly Celery.

Regal Rose & Pretty in Pink

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

French Foliage…..

…. one last time!!!!! 

Everything in this project is retiring, except for Very Vanilla Cardstock!  I challenged myself to create a project using retiring Inks.  Of course the colours – Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard, Not Quite Navy & River Rock – were the perfect match for the soon to be retired Stamp Set – French Foliage……

Again, the box is something I saw on Pinterest, although much bigger, so I set about adapting it to suit what I wanted & that was a set of 3 x 3 Gift Cards.

I’m really happy with the final result, but more so that I could achieve something using all the retiring Ink Colours & Cardstock – Riding Hood Red plus Ribbon.


Until next time, Happy Stamping!


Gift Card Holder…


I found this tutorial for a Gift Card Holder over at Created by You, which is owned by the very talented Sharon Field.  It looked so interesting & lovely that I thought I would give it a go.  I’ve used all my new products from SAB.

Of course, I adjusted mine a little so that it could fit our standard envelopes in Australia.  since creating this one, I’ve played around with it a bit & did a couple of different things to it, but more about that in the next couple days.

I wanted to use the matching ribbons that come in SAB but didn’t look any good on the Lucky Limeade, so back to the drawing board for me.

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Fresh Vintage, Elementary Elegance
Ink – Calyspo Coral, Soft Suede
Cardstock – Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla
Embossing Folder – Square Lattice
Dies – Top Note
Ribbon – 3/8″ Ruffled – Pool Party
DSP – Everyday Enchantment

Until next time, Happy Stampin!
