A Beautiful Way to Present a Gift Card!

Hello friends,

Even as a crafter, at times, I find it difficult to come up with a beautiful way to present someone with a gift card. Whether it's for a birthday, a baby shower, or the holidays, I often turn to gift cards as a last minute gift or to allow the recipient to purchase whatever they would like, rather than buying something I "think" they would like. Gift cards are great, but lets face it, there aren't many great options on how to package them for gift giving.

Well, today I bring you a beautiful way to do just that. The Fun Stampers Journey Holiday Mini introduces the amazing Gift Card Pouch. I love it because it is large enough to really be able to decorate, you can put it in an envelope if you wish, or you could even hang it on the Christmas tree.
Here is an example of one I made for Holiday gift giving.

In the following weeks I will be posting samples of gift card pouches for many different occasions to show you the versatility of this die.
To create this gift card pouch I used the following supplies: Pool Play Cardstock (CS-0092); Whip Cream Cardstock (CS-0040); Pool Play Ink Pad (IP-0051); Black Licorice Ink Pad (IP-0126);Winter Doves Bundle (BD-0294); Falala Embossing Folder (EF-0021); Happy Merry Bundle (BD-0293); Gift Card Pouch Die (DI-0295); Mystic Vine Die-Host Exclusive (DI-0322); Journey Silver Thread (AC-0204); Brushed Silver Organza Ribbon (AC-0244); Blue Skies Journey Sequins (AC-0113); and Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).

You may purchase any of these items from my Fun Stampers Journey website at\angievallepeters.

Have a beautiful day!

Good evening ladies,

These past couple of days I had the immense pleasure and privilege of attending the Fun Stamper's Journey 2017 annual convention. To say that I was a bit overwhelmed is definitely an understatement. Every person I interacted with was so kind. The journey crew and the hotel staff went above and beyond to make me feel welcome. I met cyber friends face to face for the first time and made countless new friends. I am grateful for Richard Garay's generosity, commitment, and enthusiasm. I have so many memories that I will always treasure.

As part of my convention experience, I decided to participate in a mixed media swap. Tonight's card is the card I submitted. It is definitely outside my comfort zone, but I decided to give it a go.

I initially stamped the background with the Vintage Notes background Stamp (SS-0303). I then used all the smaller stamps in the Bad Bones stamp set (SS-0336) using a slightly darker color ink, River Stone (IP-0063) I then distressed the entire border of the card using Bubble Gum Ink (IP-0058). The skull was embossed with white embossing powder and I added Black Journey Twine (AC-0004) behind the skull. To add a little sparkle and pizazz, I sprinkled clear silk over the front of the card.

I love the finished look! Thank you so much for stopping by. I will be posting some of the other cards I made for swaps for the convention.

Have a wonderful evening,

I love, love, love this butterfly stamp. Ok, I have a thing for butterflies - they're magical. For this card I use the vertical Z fold for the base. I wanted to create a dramatic look so I chose a black and white background to really make the colors of the butterfly pop. The butterfly was colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol makers, and I added a little bit of sparkle dust for pizazz.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Bit of Drama

It has certainly been quite some time since I have posted anything on my blog. I have been dealing with several health issues, which thankfully have resolved, but now I'm getting back into the swing of things. Today, I would like to share a project I concocted last night.

I really love the way this card turned out. I especially like the contrasts between the black and white background and the beautiful pink flower as the focal point.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


A Little Mixed Media

Today's card is a little bit of everything. I used watercolor paper, bronze silk, gesso, and a stencil to create the background. The beautiful flowers were colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Finally, I wanted to use an interesting fold technique for the card base. I intend to write s tutorial for this card and will post it sometime next week.

Thanks for stopping by!
