Kraft Bag Gift Card!

Good morning, stampy friends!   
Today I'm sharing a fun, yet truly easy-to-create idea for giving a gift card, or maybe a gift of game tickets, concert tickets, or even a super-special little photo-treasure.  

Of course, if you're giving sports tickets to your favorite date, you could change up the tag embellishment to something more in tune with the team or the occasion.  




This gift presentation is super easy.  Take a look!

I'd love to see your versions of this gift card presentation, so do  come back to share a link to yours!  

Inky (((hugs))),

PAPER:  Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags, Cardstock = Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Whisper White;  DSP = Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper

INKS:  Archival Basic Black, Crushed Curry

STAMPS:  Birthday Blooms

ACCESSORIES:  Tags & Labels Framelits, Botanical Builder Framelits, Banner punch, Gold Metallic Baker's Twine, Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Trimmer, Simply Scored, Bone Folder, Big Shot

Got Smiles to Send?

Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing a creation that's actually a mix from the new Occasions Catalog with one of the free items you can choose from the Sale-A-Bration event.  Remember, Sale-A-Bration is in effect only until March 31!



I spotted the PPA284 sketch challenge on the last night before it ended ... but finished this project even though it was too late to be submitted for the challenge itself.  Hey ... no reason there to stop the creative enjoyment!  

The circle of designer paper is from the Sale-A-Brations Wildflower Fields DSP collection (p. 12 SAB).  The mix of colors is lovely, and my color palette for the card was chosen from this paper.  Easy decisions .... gotta love'em!

The blossom was cut with the Botanical Builder Framelits dies, (Occasions p. 26).  This time I cut the blossom from Whisper White c/s, and added Lost Lagoon ink to the center and outer edges with a Sponge Dauber.  There's a bitty flower die cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and a Rhinestone Jewel to finish off the center of the blossom.  The leaf was stamped with its coordinating stamp from the Botanical Blooms set (Occasions p. 27) ... which I swear is going to be a long-time favorite here for my personal stamping!

Check out this video featuring the entire bundle of products featuring the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, Botanical Blooms stamp set, and the beautiful Botanical Gardens DSP!  

Pssst!  The complete bundle comes at a 15% savings over single pricing, and ... it qualifies you for a free Sale-A-Bration item all at the same time!  I've included it in the product list below.  

Questions?  Please feel most welcome to contact me!  

Is your 'wish list' adding up to a little more than you thought?  Purchase the starter kit for $99 ... but get $155 product of your choice plus free shipping!

Confession and a Calypso Thanks!

Confession:  I love being back in the stampin' zone after the Christmas holidays.  Time for new focus on stamping themes, time to relax from the holiday hustle, bustle, buying, wrapping, and cooking.  Time for a new year and renewed "everything" it seems!  Apparently a lot of stampers and scrappers agree, as the turnout for the first stamp show of 2016 here in the North Texas area was very popular on Saturday's opening.  We love to "get out there", see new products, enjoy make 'n takes, chat and share (((hugs))) with friends from nearby areas and nearby states!  Happy 2016, my stampy friends!

Here's the first new card I've created since unpacking from the show:


Outside it's gray on so many days, that I simply need to create with color!  Calypso Coral is actually the first coral color that I've purchased over and over.  It's a happy color, without being overly orangey, and is nicely related to its pink cousins .... just my opinion {JMO}, of course!

The 'Thank You" stamp is from the Rose Wonder stamp set ... while the blossom and foliage is all cut with the new Botanical Builder Framelits dies from the Occasions catalog, page 26.  The complete supplies list will be shared below.

The newest Weekly Deals are now showing over in the right-side column here at Texas Rubber 'n Ink ... so be to take advantage of this week's newest offerings.  Even these sale items and Clearance Rack items count toward a free SAB item with each $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration!

Please let me know if I can be of help in any way ...  I'm just an email away!
