Expressions in Ink Gift Card Holder

Expressions in Ink Gift Card Holder

I recently returned from Stampin’ Up!’s incentive trip to Maui! What a treat! The weather was beautiful, and the company spoiled the earners and their guests. I truly thank all of my friends, customers, team, and supportive husband for this awesome opportunity.

The event focuses mainly on relaxing, recharging, and connecting with other demonstrators. We didn’t have any planned stamping events, but we did exchange swap cards. To participate, I made 26 of one card. (See my card here.)

Then, we receive 25 different cards back! It’s so fun to see the variety of ideas presented by other demonstrators. (Review the video of the cards I received here. Hint: the card showcase takes place near the end of the video.)

Expressions in Ink Gift Card Holder

I really liked a card I received from Selene Kempton; it doubles as a gift card holder. I changed up the Designer Series Paper and the sentiment to make it my own.

My version uses the following products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2021-2022 Annual Catalog:

  • Expressions in Ink 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper
  • Sentiment from Peaceful Moments
  • Fine Art Gold Ribbon
  • Gold Foil Paper

Dimensions to cut the card stock, working from the top down:

  • 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 — your choice of Designer Series Paper
  • 4 1/2 x 3 — colored coordinating card stock
  • 7 1/2 x 4 3/4, scored at 1 inch and 4 1/4 inches — white “base”
  • 5 1/4 x 3 3/4 — colored coordinating card stock mat
  • 1 x 4 3/4 — Designer Series Paper for the inside trim piece

Stampin’ Up!’s Boho Indigo Product Medley

Stampin' Up! Boho Indigo Product Medley

With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, I vowed to actually use what I purchase. Novel idea, right? Who doesn’t get caught up in the excitement of all the new supplies? Sometimes I don’t get a chance to use some awesome products. Not this time! The blues of Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy spoke to me with the Boho Indigo Product Medley. I’ve been working hard (and, really, it’s not that hard) to use all of the included elements. It’s such an awesome grouping of supplies. For $70, the kit includes:

  • 11-piece photopolymer stamp set (clear stamp blocks sold separately);
  • 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs;
  • Very Vanilla 6″ x 6″ dry embossed sheets, 2 each of 3 designs;
  • die cuts with gold foil accents, 2 sheets each of 3 designs;
  • Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon, 10 yards;
  • Very Vanilla/gold 1/4″ Pleated Ribbon, 10 yards;
  • paper flowers, 20 each in 2 sizes;
  • 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies

The Card and Project

The “Sorry You’re Feeling Blue” sentiment works well with this month’s well wishes theme. I created a greeting card and mini standing Kleenex holder with the medley ingredients — with a few additional items (Gold Foil Sheets, Stitched Shapes, Layering Ovals and Cirlces) thrown in.

I grabbed the Kleenex holder idea from my friend, Bev, who makes a lot of things for craft shows.
