Stampin’ Up! Cajun Craze Whole Lot of Lovely Thank You Card

There’s just something about Cajun Craze and Basic Black that makes one think of Fall.  I love this design and the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP set off this Thank You Card.  Pretty quick and easy, I do admit lots of cutting but easy to assemble.  The sentiment is triple layered using the Scalloped Squares Framelits. Just in time for this card is the lovely Black Dimesionals featured on the Sentiment that is from One Big Meaning Stamp Set.  The Sentiment was raised a bit by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere to the card front.

The inside was finished by stamping the flowers  in Cajun Craze and Wild Wasabi from the Lots of Love Stamp Set.

Here are the supplies I used in this card:

Card Stock: Cajun Craze, Basic Black, Whisper White

Stamp Sets: Lots of  Love, One Big Meaning

Dies: Layered Scalloped Square Framelits

Ink:  Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Cajun Craze


Stampin’ Up! Coffee Cafe Gift Card Holder

What could be more appropriate than a ‘gift card gift holder’. Unless it’s a coffee gift card and the holder is also coffee related.  I needed a card for a Starbucks Coffee Gift Card.  Cafe Coffee fit the bill!  Using the Coffee Cafe Bundle (stamps and dies that match) I created this Z fold card with the ‘slot’ for the gift card inside.

Using Timeless Treasures Stamp Set in Early Espresso I stamped the coffee cup circles randomly on Old Olive Color Theory Designer Series Paper.  Also using the coffee bean stamp from the Coffee Cafe Stamp set I also stamped it randomly in Early Espresso.  The stamped pieces where then adhered to Thick Whisper White Card Stock.  I created the front using Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Card Stock and die cutting using the larger coffee cup die.  The lid was created using Early Espresso Card Stock and die cut.

I adhered the finished coffee cup to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Coffee Break Designer Series Paper was used for the background of the coffee cup.


Actually a pretty quick card to make but looks much more difficult than it is.  Here are the products I used in making this Gift Card Holder:

Card Stock:  Early Espresso, Whisper White, Thick Whisper White, Old Olive

InK: Early Espresso

Papers: Coffee Break DSP,  Color Theory Specialty DSP Stack

Stamp Sets:  Coffee Cafe, Timeless Treasures

Die Cuts: Coffee Cups Framelits Dies

Embellishments: Glitter Enamel Dots
