Holiday gift card holders

Hello Stampers!  Do you still need gift card holders for your Holiday gift giving?  Then maybe these will give you some great ideas!  These were the gift card holders from my team party this last weekend.















The way we work our exchange is that everybody brings a gift card with a pretty handmade holder.  We play a game and then everybody picks and walks away with a different gift card!  So fun!

Card with a Box

Hello Stampers!  I have a new video for you today!  When I was attending the Thailand Incentive Trip over the summer, we had a demo share fair.  This was where several demonstrators were demonstrating projects using new products.  One of the demonstrators demonstrated this really fun card with a box.  I decided that I needed to make one of these and show you how to do it!

I actually had my team mates and customers make one of these cards at my recent Customer/Team Appreciation event this last weekend.

Here are the cards that I made:

Flurry of Wishes meets Foil Snowflakes

Hello Stampers!  Man was I ever a busy little beaver today creating cards today!  I had a Monthly card class this morning, and that just got me in the mood to stamp!  So after a fabulous lunch out, I went home and stamped and stamped!  

One of the things I was working on was some make n' take projects for my upcoming team meeting.  Here is the card that I created:

Flurry of Wishes, Inkin With Dink

I pulled out the carryover holiday stamp set Flurry of Wishes.  I have always loved this set!  I also love to do my snowflake cards in blues and greys.  These are in Pool Party and Smokey Slate.  I randomly stamped the snowflakes in the background.  I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the 2 1/4" circle punch and adhered it to one of our new foil snowflakes.  LOVE these!  These come in a package of 24 snowflakes, 12 gold snowflakes and 12 silver snowflakes.

I hope you have enjoyed this card!  If you have made some cards using this stamp set, I'd love to see them!  Hop over to my Inkin With Dink Stampers Facebook page and share them with us!

Pretty Pines Thinlits card

Hello Stampers!  As some of you may know, my mother is a stamper too.  She goes to a monthly card swap and I love to see the cards and projects that she comes home with.  She recently went to one and the theme was fall or Christmas.  I just fell in love with this particular Christmas card and wanted to share!

Pretty Pines thinlits, Inkin With DInk It is a Z fold card.  The maker used the Pretty Pines thinlits on this card.  I just think it turned out beautiful!  

IMG_9843 This is what the card looks like opened up.

IMG_9844 This is a view from the top so you can see how it was put together.
