Mystery Stamping Gift Card Holder

It is soooo wintery at my house in the meadow!! A foot of snow and 12 degrees below zero this morning - BRRRRR!  But inside, I'm focused on Sunshine and Rainbows - designer series paper that is!  It is so ultra cheerful and bright!  I decided to use it for my mystery stamping gift card holders:

Now isn't that cheerful?  I just love this bright paper.

The sentiment is from Best Delivery stamp set. I decided to try adding the delivery truck to the front, and it turned out cute! I stamped the truck on white card stock and then on dsp. I fussy cut the back of the truck out and adhered over the white truck.  Then I stamped the balloons and popped them on the back with dimensionals.  I like how it turned out.

Monday Mystery Stamping in the Meadow Featuring Boughs & Blossoms Bundle.

   Have you seen the Boughs and Blossoms stamp set on page 26 in the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog?  The punch has two distinct foliages to punch.  One looks like a leafy stem and the other looks like a sprig of small flowers - Baby's Breath maybe?  From my days working in the florist's shop it looks like Baby's Breath to me.  Along with the punch the stamp set has sweet sentiments, flowers and foliage images.  This set was at the top of my wishlist and it's a beauty! 

I featured this set in mystery stamping tonight, and here are the cards I made:

This card design has a slant across the front that calls for something to highlight it, and i chose to se foliage and flowers. 

Here's the card in with Pale Papaya Flowers:

Kylie's International Blog Hop

This month's customer thank you card is made with the new Amazing Sillhouettes stamp set and Amazing Thanks Dies shown on page 40 of the January-June Mini Catalog. They are both beautiful and if you purchase them together as a bundle you will save 10%.

I used the Stamp-a-ratus to stamp the tree image in Soft Succulent Ink onto the Heart and Home Designer Series Paper.  I stamped it twice to get a nice dark image. All of the Heart and Home dsp has a wood look on one side and floral print on the other. It is mouth-watering dsp! You can see I used two different wood patterns.

 

Amazing silhouettes trees thank yous2

I then used the Amazing Thanks dies to die cut the "thanks," - one for the larger background image in basic black and one in Basic White to layer onto the black card stock.  This makes the white stand out and gives it some depth. 

Amazing thanks dies2

The other dies in this set are "you," "are," and "amazing."

I love the water color look this stamp creates.

Layered Card With Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set

I featured the new Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set in Mystery Stamping in the Meadow.  I love this set with the wonderful sentiments and wildlife drawings.  Not only is it a great set for masculine cards, but also for any cards for nature lovers! I've paired it with the new Horizons DSP which is GORGEOUS!! 

The layout is CASED from Stampin' Up! demonstrator Ronda Wade.

Wildlife wonder three cards2

This layout has lots of layers and texture with the embossed circle. I also used Shimmery Crystal Effects on the embossed trees to add more texture and bring out the trees.

Wildlife wonder wolf2

The background for the owl and bear is made using one of the stamps in the set that looks like clouds or hills - whatever you want it for hee hee.

The sentiments at the bottom are all different from each other.  The sentiment on the bear card is stamped on the back of the Horizon DSP:
