Stampin' with my Sister

Tonight my sister came over and we got a chance to stamp! She made a fantastic card! I made a wonderful little gift card holder.

All products are from Stampin' Up! For the gift card holder I used close to cocoa, pretty in pink, and very vanilla cs. I used one of my most favorite sets...Like it a Latte. Unfortunately it is retired. I thought this set was perfect for the project because the gift card is from Starbucks. I started with the close to cocoa and made a template for the card. Once I got the size I wanted I glued it together. I wrapped a band of pretty in pink card stock around the holder that I stamped using the heart and VersaMark ink. I stamped the rest of my images onto very vanilla with close to cocoa and wild wasabi classic ink. I cut out the cup and used my round tab punch for the saying. I also used chocolate chip 5/8 grosgrain ribbon to pull the card out with. And it was done!

My sister's card was CASEd from a card I had made. She liked it so much, but wanted to make her own version! She did a fantastic job! Her card turned out great! She used certainly celery, close to cocoa, barely banana, and whisper white cs. She stamped the penguin from Punch Pals with close to cocoa. She colored him in with close to cocoa and a blender pen and a barely banana marker. She stamped the saying from It's your Birthday Set! She also used the mat pack and paper piercing tool to add dimension. Her card turned out great and I love the colors she chose!!!

It was great to get a chance to create something fun with her! Enjoy!
