Mini Treat Gift Card Holders

I have been playing around with my Mini Treat Bag thinlit lately and put together a bunch of little gift card holder treat bags. Below are some of the Christmas themed ones, but I also made a few birthday. 

I started with some This Christmas Specialty Designer Series paper and cut out my pieces with the Big Shot and the Mini Treat Bag thinlit die. 

Then I took some scraps of the same specialty paper, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla card stock and
added my sentiment and some layers on the front of the bag.  Inside I added a piece of Very Vanilla card stock that a gift card holder and note could be added to.

It looks like I was just in a Serene Scenery designer series paper mode on this week's projects!  I have again used it as a background on my cards featured the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  I promise to move on to something else soon!!!

There are two versions of the same card, the only difference is the background paper.  I chose to use Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Cajun Craze for my leaves and Soft Suede for my tree. 

There is nothing fancy about the card but I have had lots of people say they like it a lot, the stamp set is a favorite of many of my friends and customers...

The Floral Boutique designer series paper was one that I hadn't purchased until recently.  For some reason, I wasn't that in to it I guess, but now that I have it I changed my mind! 

For this card, it is paired with the hostess stamp set called Time of Year and some thick baker's twine that I separated.

Love You

This card uses scraps again and if you follow my blog you will notice that I used another piece of this same pattern of designer series paper recently on another card.  Sometimes I use all the scraps from a piece of designer paper at one sitting and that happened this time...

My background is Tip Top Taupe card stock that was embossed with the Festive folder and then I added my scrap of designer series paper to the top of it. 

A few strips of lace trim tied up with some linen thread, my sentiment and die cut complete the card.

Better Together

This is the last day to get in on some great online sale deals!  Click on the picture below to start your shopping :)

I really love the Playful Backgrounds stamp set and was centering my card on that before I really knew what I was going to come up with.  I found an already embossed piece of Smoky Slate card stock in my scrap pile and thought I would add that to the background for some textures.

I think I would like to play with different background colors if I recreated this card sometime, but they work for this one I think.  Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive...

I added a little thick baker's twine to finish off the card.

In My Thoughts

I have two different takes on the same sentiment for you today.  Each card uses the same two stamp sets - Rose Wonder and Kinda Eclectic. 

For the first one, I added a piece of Serene Scenery designer series paper to the middle of my card base and added Early Espresso on either side of it that is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Then I added a strip of Delightful Dijon card stock, burlap ribbon and my sentiment layer.

The second card showcases some By the Shore designer series paper and some randomly stamped leaves in the background.

I chose some Tip Top Taupe mini striped ribbon.

Here for You

Happy Thanksgiving! 

The card I am sharing today doesn't have anything to do with Thanksgiving, but here it is anyway....

I started with a sponge brayer and Peekaboo Peach ink on some Whisper White card stock.  Then I added my images and colored in some of the flower.  Next, I added some glitter with the Wink of Stella clear glitter brush on the petals.

A little corrugated paper, linen thread and Serene Scenery designer series paper and the card was compete.
