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

Bright Foil Frenzy Lemon Lime Twist Birthday Shaker Card

Ah, what do you make for a 13 year old boy that doesn’t play sports?  He does play the cello but I couldn’t come up with a card for that.  So…I decided an eclectic card would do.  Here is what I came up with.  Using Foil Frenzy in Lemon Lime Twist I paired it with Gold Numbers,  and Lemon Lime Card Stock.  I think it turned out pretty  nifty.  At first when I created it I wanted to the leave the front plain, but after some thought I added from stars from two different die sets that were coordinating.  Gold Foil kind of sets it off.

Since I wanted to use die cut gold foil numbers I had to contrive a different way of creating my shaker card.  Using two window sheets I made a ‘shaker pocket’ adhered to the back of the  patterned foil card front.  The pocket was created by first adhering a piece of window sheet to the back of the die cut round opening.  I used Fast Fuse.  Next using Foam Adhesive Strips I outlined the window placing the Foam directly on the window sheet.  Next I cut another piece of window sheet about the same size and then carefully place some sequins on the open area.  Placing the second sheet of window sheet on top of the foam adhesive strips sealed it carefully.  The front was then adhered to the Card Front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the die cut piece from the front of the card I adhered it to a piece of Whisper White Card Stock  The Happy Birthday Thinlit was die cut in Lemon Lime Card Stock and adhered on top of the die cut.  The materials I used in this card can be found listed below.

Stampin’ Up! Foil Frenzy Stunning Birthday Card

Don’t you love the versatility of the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper?  Gorgeous!!! Especially pairing two new colors: Berry Burst and Powder Pink.

I  loosely cased this card and now can’t find the original to credit the author.  I think it is a brilliant design. The ribbon is new this year, so pretty in Berry Burst, it’s the 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding.  It makes the prettiest bow.  The gold foil sentiment just sets the whole front of the card off don’t you think?

Inside was finished by using the punched out Foil Frenzy scalloped circle and Powder Pink.  Before adhering all layers together on the inside I first stamped the sentiment and sponged lightly with Berry Burst Ink on the edges of the powder Pink.

Stampin’ Up! Big on Birthdays, Naturally Eclectic in Soft Sky Birthday Card

Love so many of the new Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers!  So pretty, so ‘eclectic’ for sure.  Coincidently this card is made using the Naturally Eclectic DSP!  Soft Sky is one of the many coordinating colors with this paper, tried Night of Navy but it was just too dark for what I was going for.

Kind of quick and simple!  Uses one Die cut and the rest are all easy to cut on the trimmer.  The matching ribbon and enamel dots are so much fun and add so much to the ‘soft feel’ of the card.

The inside was finished with a “Blooms & Wishes” petal stamped in Soft Sky.  The Stampin’ UP! supplies I used in this card are listed below.  Also check out my video making this card:Soft Sky Birthday Card.
