Folks it feels like so long since we held a proper release that I almost forget how to do it! Just in case you are new here, we are gearing up to release some new goodies on Friday night, 7.00pm my time - the DT and I will be previewing the new goodies between now and then, so we invite you back to see what we have been up to!
I am a little excited to show you a concept today that will hopefully be of great service to you when it comes to giving gifts.
The stamp set and co-ordinating die set that we are previewing today has been created around the Gift Card concept. It is the first set in its series (I have another planned) and it enables you to do two very distinct things.
1) You can dress up store bought gift cards for any purpose and present them in a becoming style to suit your card/project.
2) You can create your own gift cards.
I have to admit, I had myself in mind when I was deciding exactly what sentiments to begin this set with - I think one of the things I long for most is an evening to myself and so I made that into a stampable sentiment and pictured myself receiving such a home made gift card from one of my wee folks or DH! Bliss!
You remember making those mummy-vouchers' in school - where you drew up a ticket that said valid for a hug? yep? well now you can make up a proper grown up Gift card version! I can think of so many versions I want to make of this, little gift card booklets even!
The dies that co-ordinate with the Gift Card it set include a die designed to create standard gift card die cuts so that you can cut out your own gift cards from card, cork board, leather even, whatever tickles your fancy! What is also neat about this is that you can cut out a holder for your gift card using either of the two smaller dies!
My sample this morning shows the bracket holder die in use, I simply used it on the front of my card to create a space that I could slip my home made gift card into.
I cut my home made gift card from white card stock and stamped an all over pattern on to it using Funky Flowers. on the reverse I stamped the Breakfast in Bed sentiment - I love the sentiment on the front - 'For lovely you from lovely me' - I especially like how it fits neatly inside the bracket shape!
The bracket shape can be used vertically or horizontally, I hope to show you further examples later on.
The Gift card it die set - shown below on one of my home made die storage folders, see the post here for more deets on that.
I sure hope it tickles! Here are he DT ladies who are previewing with me today! Don't forget to leave comments on the DT blogs as you go - we love to hear what you think, and there could be a random prize!
