ICS Blog Hop 2022 - 2024 In Colors

Welcome to the June 2022 Inspire Create Share Blog Hop. This month's theme is "Meet the New In Colors". Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, and Orchid Oasis - such fabulous names for such fabulous colors. They're bright. They're cheerful. They make me happy. They work so well together but also combine well with many of our other Stampin' Up! colors. All of the 2022 - 2024 In Color projects created for this month's blog hop are intended to inspire you and help you get your stamping and crafting on. So get started and enjoy our Meet the New In Colors blog hop.

For this blog hop post, I chose to use all 5 new In Colors on 1 card. I think they're fun, festive colors so decided I'd create a birthday card. Then as I was creating, I thought, "why not turn it into a gift card holder", something I always need. I hope you enjoy my gift card holder featuring the 2022 - 2024 In Colors and will give it a try. It's really quite quick and easy and is just as much fun to make as it will be to give to someone special.

Perfectly Penciled Cash Card for the Graduate

Mother's Day is here once again. Every year at this time, I find myself reflecting on my years as a mom. Am I good enough? Have I shown enough love? Did I praise enough? Was I a good listener? and on and on. Yes, I've always taken my role as a mom very seriously, maybe too much so at times???, I don't know. I consider being a mom the most important work I'll ever do. Did I always get it right? No. Did I make mistakes? Yes. I think I can look back at my 30+ years as a mom and honestly say I did my best - the best I knew how with what I had. From the moment they were born and I learned what instant love was to now as I embrace the time I get to spend with them as adult children, I have loved them unconditionally and with all my heart and soul, and I have thanked God every day that he entrusted them to me.

I look at my daughters now (Andrea is 30. Emily is 25.) and see what truly good people they are. They're hard working, kind, caring, loving, compassionate, respectful people. They always strive to do and be their best, give of themselves, and care for others. They're both quite fun to be around and are good at making me laugh and smile. I look at Andrea and Emily and see that they are my greatest achievement and my legacy. I am forever grateful to be their mom. 

My own mom passed on nearly 6 years ago. I spend time thinking about her too, knowing that she too did her best. It's still strange not to call her on this day to wish her Happy Mother's Day. I think, though, that she'd be just as proud of me and my family today as she was when she was here on earth with us. I think she looks down on us and sees the wonderful people we are and celebrates milestones and special moments with us and watches over us in our struggles too. I'm grateful for the signs I get that she is still with me in spirit.

Happy Mother's Day to ALL the wonderful moms out there. I hope your day is blessed with love, happiness, family, and friends, and perhaps a few surprises too.

This day is also a day of celebration for another reason. Today I'll watch my niece graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from The Ohio State University. I'm so proud of Alison, and in celebration of her achievement, I created a special money card for her. I want to show you how you can make a money card too. 

I've chosen some new products that I though would be perfect for this task. You can't go wrong with the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper for black & white cards with a pop of color. This black and white DSP can be used as is or customized with any of our color tools and inks. My money card also features the Happiness Abounds Bundle. Why not dress your cash gifts in some pretty packaging perfect for graduations, birthdays, weddings, Mother's Day, and so many more gift giving occasions. You'll have fun doing it and your special people will be delighted with your handmade presentation.

Cash Card Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Basic Black card base = 7" x 8 1/2"
  • Basic White card stock =  6 3/4" x 3" (cut 2) and 6 3/4" x 1 3/4"
  • Basic White for banner = 4" x 3/4" plus scrap for stamping & color flower and leaves
  • DSP = 6 5/8" x 2 7/8" and 6 5/8" x 1 5/8"
  • DSP for belly band = 8 1/2" x 1"

Daffodil Afternoon Gift Card Holder & More

It was a cold, wintery day in central Ohio on Friday, January 7th, but I was able to bring some sunshine to the day when I chose to use the Daffodil Afternoon Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper to feature in my projects. I love that everyone has the opportunity to earn this beautiful Designer Series Paper Free. Yep, it's true. Place a $50 order and choose Daffodil Afternoon DSP or one of several other products from our Sale-A-Bration Brochure. AND, did you know that the Daffodil Afternoon DSP coordinates with our new Daffodil Daydream Bundle in the new Mini Catalog? I love Stampin' Up!'s coordination of products, colors, and themes. It makes creating extra fun and easy!

In this video replay of Friday's Facebook Live, I demonstrate how to make a Gift Card Holder using a 3" x 12" strip of Daffodil Daydream DSP. It's a easy layout to replicate on your own and is great for birthdays, graduations, weddings, and so much more. I'll also show you cutting dimensions and card ideas for another sheet of the pretty Daffodil Daydreams DSP to help you make a nice assortment of Daffodil Afternoon cards including some slimline cards.

Decorated Boxes for Gift Cards & More

Whether you're giving gift cards this holiday season or throughout the year for birthdays, graduations, and other special events, you may want to consider decorating some Stampin' Up! boxes to package them in. I've found that our Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes and our Kraft Gift Boxes are sized perfectly for gift cards that are mounted on the larger card board pieces.

I tucked gift cards and treats in Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes then decorated them with the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper for my nieces. I sure am going to miss this DSP. It was one of my very favorite holiday papers ever! Gift tags are fast and easy to make when you use our Tailored Tags Dies.

Stamping with Friends Blog Hop - Sweet Strawberry Slimline Card

2021_AC_BACK_COVER

The Stamping with Friends Blog Hop Challenge for today was to create a Slimline Card. I decided to use the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch - perfect for a summer birthday card that also serves as a gift card holder.

I used the Label Me Lovely Punch to cut out a small area of the buffalo check DSP to show where to insert and pull out a gift card.

MORE Sparkling Ombre Gift Card Holders

Did you see my May 13th post? I shared a video demonstration of me making a couple of gift card holders featuring the blue Ombre Specialty Paper. If you haven't seen the video, click here to view it now.

I created a couple more Gift Card Holders also using the Ombre Specialty Paper. I wanted these to be more feminine than the ones I showed you in my May 13th blog post, so I added components of our very popular Pansy Petals Suite. I love these and can't wait to gift them to some special ladies!

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Cut Ombre Specialty Paper 5 1/2" x 12"
  • Score at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2" on long side. FYI...the first score line will mark you from bottom flap. I put my paper on the scoring tool with the dark ombre end to the left and the light ombre end to the right.
