Hi there blog friends!! I’m excited today to be participating in the first Blog Hop for Waltzingmouse Stamps for 2014 and there’s a lot of gifty goodness to see today. If you jumped in the middle of our list, the best way to make your way through the hop is to start at Claire’s Blog she has the complete sequence if you get out of order or if one of the links don’t work. In order complete the hop, leave a comment on as many of the Design Team Members Blogs as you can as a random name is selected from each blog and then a final winner picked from those names. The winner will get a free stamp set of their choice from the Waltzingmouse Stamps store. You have until March 2nd at 5:59 AM CST to leave your comment and then you can check on the Claire’s Blog on March 4th after 6am CST to see if you are a winner. Stay tuned, below I’ll tell you your next stop along the hop!!
We all know what it’s like when you need to give a gift and aren’t quite sure what to give. Me? I’m the gift card queen but that’s definitely the kind of gift that needs to be dolled up to personalize it. The new set today is Gift Card It and it has the sweetest sayings and embellies for a darling presentation! My first project is a frilly ensemble for a gift card gift with an envelope (yes it really does fit inside). The picture below is the envelope and the inside of the card.
To make my card I used Spellbinders Elegant Ovals and for embellishment of the top layer I used Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents. On the inside I created a pocket using Elegant Ovals and cut it midway up using Spellbinders Labels Four.
|CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED|
|Rubber Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps – Gift Card It
Craft Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Smooth – Natural White
Ink:Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents, Spellbinders Labels Four, Recollection Gems, Recollections Pearls, Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine
For my second project I custom dyed some fuchsia ribbon and went with a bright fushia and cream card with the lovely leaf border from the stamp set. It was a “quick to put together” thank you card. I stamped the frame from Gift Card it onto a layer cut with Spellbinders Curved Matting Basics B. I used Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two as a border. I cut two to acommodate the height – I simply trimmed half of the edge off to give the border some symmetry then added the decorative piece from Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments between the two pieces to disguise where I cut. Lastly I layered the filigree piece from A2 Tranquil Moments and added the small piece from Spellbinders 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy on top.

Good evening Becca,
I just adore the first “Frilly” gift card wallet you have made as i just love it to bits. It is so beautiful and pretty that i would make a few of them up for a number of little girls i know and big ones that would just love this every bit as much as me. Your second card is lovely too and would suit No.1 daughter down to a tee in every way. Thank you for your beautiful inspired gifts of today,
Love and crafty hugs
Very lovely card.
Beautiful just beautiful. Love the dies you used and the color are gorgeous.
Well…..I didn’t think you could do it…but…YOU HAVE OUTDONE YOURSELF AGAIN!!!!! You never cease to amaze me girl, these are out of this world gorgeous
Gorgeous cards but you didn’t list what Spellbinder dies you used. You put together the most beautiful layers. I always look to see how you layer them.
BOTH ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING but I think that I like the first one best. I think I know my dies and believe it is Floral Ovals which is one of my most “go to” dies of the 100 or so that I have. Becca I hope you have a blessed and creative weekend. Love the saying on the first one too!!!
Stunning work! I really like the oval one, so beautiful!
Both cards are beautiful, Becca! The lilac card is my favorite. I’m ready for spring! Have a wonderful weekend!
I really like those cards! How can you part with them?
Those are spectacular! Love the colors.
BOTH of your cards are GORGEOUS BECCA!!! :) I ALWAYS LOVE ALL of the FRILLS OF YOUR DIES!!!!!!;) THEY’RE JUST SO GORGEOUS!!!!!:) AND LOOK at that GIFT CARD!!!!!!!! FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!:) LOVELY! LOVELY! LOVELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:) (sigh!) :)
These are so much fun – lovely, lacy, fun! Would love to know which dies you used on the first one…that oval on top really caught my eye! Thanks for sharing these, Becca.
Becca, you amaze me with all your beauty. Your in my favorites on my
Great card. You must have a house full of Spellbinders.
It’s amazing how differently you all approach these blog hops. This is sheer sophistication, with a simple stamp at its heart. Lovely.
Absolutely love your first card – so delicate! I really like the Leaf Frame stamp on the second card. Even if pink isn’t my favorite color, I can imagine this card in Peach or even Lilac – It’s a WOW.
Becca, you have inspired me into a whole new realm of crafting. I am just loving these hinged cards. Yours are so beautiful and I’m working at being the card queen of my own family lol. xo
Beautiful project. I believe that when you give a gift card, it must be at least beautifully arranged. Like yours.
Love these cards, Becca! But the gift card holder is my fave!!! So lacy!!! I just love it. I will be studying it to see how you got everything to look so perfect. It really is a work of art!
First card is such a elegant shape and such a classy way to give a gift card, love the pink in the second card, very sweet!
What a great idea for a card holder! The colors you’ve chosen are great!
