Princess Chloe Gift Card Holder

Do you own so many stamps, you forget what you have and when you remember you have it, you can't find it?  That's what happened to cute Puddle Jumpers Princess Chloe from Claudia & Co. which I bought over at DCRU.  Before I could really dive into all the Xmas crafts I had to make a little giftcard holder for a little girl's birthday and she's going to be celebrating it at Disneyland!  So I bought her a Disney Princess giftcard.

But it's the kind of GC that has that extra card on the top and I didn't want to just break it off cause on the back it has the To and From and Message info.  Plus it's so cute whole.  Anyway, I decided to alter the GC holder Cheryl posted about HERE.   The tutorial was from Dandelion Designs.  Because the GC is so long I used 3 pieces.  The first is piece of cardstock 4.5 x 12 inches.  Then score it in the middle at 6 inches.

The second piece was 5 x 4.25 inches and scored at a 1/4 inch on 3 sides.  Then I cut the little corners like above.

The 3rd piece was 3.75 x 9 inches and scored at 5 inches from the left.  This is where the GC would be attached.

I used tape on the back of the 3rd piece but just the top rectangle.

Taped all pieces together as shown above.  The GC is taped just below the score line.

So the GC slides in and out too.  I plan to write a little message on the bottom as well.

I like that this looks just like a regular card too from the front but opens to reveal the GC, unlike the Halloween Slider Cards I made HERE.

I forgot to finish my story from above.  I was trying to think if I had a little princess stamp to match the Disney Princess GC.  And for a while I was wondering if I had TGF's Princess Anya but I don't!  Then I realized I bought Princess Chloe but had to search in my stash for her.  I think Princess Chloe is so cute and perfect for this card.  I also need a bigger box for my stamps.  I'm running out of space.

Thanks for reading and have a great Monday!

What a cute princess! You don't have Princess Anya, what a shocker! Just kidding. At least you remember what you have, I have to dig around looking at all my stamps again.

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
