Note Card Gift Kit

On October 19th I am holding a 12 hour free crop here in Spokane, WA.  Space is limited so it is best to reserve your spot today.  You can come work on your own projects and if you want to get a jump start on some of your holiday gifts, I will have a couple of kits which can be pre-ordered to work on.  Stay tuned as I will be featuring these Kits every couple of days.

The first one I created is a card box with 12 monogrammed note cards with envelopes.  The inspiration came from a card I saw on Pinterest from PaperEscape by Thresa Kaiser.  Once I saw her monogram card I knew this would be a great idea for Christmas Presents.   Here is what it will look like….

For Always Note Cards & Box

I designed this one using For Always and Gypsy.  If you want to pre-order this kit you will get to pick the color you wish to go with the For Always paper.  You will also be able to pick the monogram you wish to use.

Note Card 2

The cost for this workshop is $20. It will include a cutting guide and instructions, the box, cards with envelopes and embellishments.  I will provide the necessary tools to complete this project with the exception of adhesive and black ink.

Stay tuned for the other kits which will be available to pre-order.

Mother’s Day Card

Last year I did not pay attention to the fact Mother’s day was right around the corner so I was left scrambling to create my Mother’s day cards.  This year I am a head of the game!!  If you have noticed I have been exploring the different types of special fold cards there are out there.  I picked the cascading card to design for my Mother’s day card as it could resemble a bouquet of flowers.  This card could easily be converted to any occaion card just by changing the sentiment.  You will see in a future post that I changed the sentiment for my May workshop.

For this card I used Kraft cardstock for the base and then used on of my boarder punches to give it the unique detail.  I then cut Lagoon cardstock to fit on each of the panels.  Using the Perfect fit – Mom stamp set I stamped the sentiment in Gypsy.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the flowers and leaves that match up with the flowers and leaves from the Girls Rock stamp set. I then used Gypsy, Buttercup, Pear, Smoothie and Lagoon inks to stamp the flowers.  For one of the smaller flowers I used the Happy Thoughts and for the Mom stamp insert in the larger flower I used the Perfect Fit – Mom stamp set. I also used the April SOTM’s adorable bird and stamped it using a two tone effect.

Once I photographed this card I realized it really needed something else so I went back and added Bitty Opaques and Sparkles.  Notice the difference?  it really completed the card.
