Thoughtful Branches

Welcome Stampin' Friends!
Just getting around to sharing a card we created at Stamp Club a few weeks ago."Thoughtful Branches" (exclusive stamp set and thinlits bundle from Stampin' Up! only available through August) is featured in this card! 
Using the Envelope Punch Board makes it even sweeter because the tab in the center becomes the closure!

Card base: 
*Piece of card stock measuring 4 ¼” x 8 ½”
*Score on the long side at 2”, 7 ¼” and 7 3/8”. This gives the top of your card a little space to move the insert*
*Using the Envelope Punch Board, punch the closure tab on   top end of the card base at 1” and 3¼”. (The bottom of card   base is the 2” end)
*Fold up at bottom score and secure with ribbon.

Inside piece: 
*Piece of card stock for the insert measuring 3 ½” x 6 ½”
*Score (on the long side) at ½” and 5”
*Stamp insert before attaching to base
*Put adhesive on the ½” fold and attach to inside of the top of the card base right above the 7 3/8” score line as pictured, with the bottom score line fold under.

 
This “gift card” holder pictured below is the same template except the bottom score line of the insert is folded up to hold a gift certificate, then tucked into the bottom of the base.
Thoughtful Branches Bundle is only available through August 2016, or while supplies last! It's a keeper Folks! Get yours soon!

Creative Weekend with the Kiddies!

Welcome Stampin' Friends!
I spent a few days with my grandchildren while my daughter and her hubby got to enjoy some time to celebrate their anniversary and attend a friends wedding. 
In between the super heroes, playing board games, pretending they were bear hunters, and setting up race tracks, they had a blast making Mommy and Daddy anniversary cards! 
They even made their own stamps! Using the scrap rubber from Stampin' Up! wood-mount stamp sets and some scrap wood pieces from Pop-pop, we cut up the rubber and they arranged the pieces on the wood! 
Made my heart happy to see them, ages 4 and 6, enjoying creativity and making cards! The boys were so proud of their creations!

Baby Elyse just watched, but she'll have her time playing with my Stampin' Up! goodies before you know it! Got a bit messy, but sure had fun! 
 Happy Anniversary Mommy and Daddy!
