Ice Cream Cone Gift Card Holder!

Over at my Sisters in Stamping blog this week we are showcasing the new Petal Cone Big Shot Die from the Occasions Mini catalog.  This is my first attempt at using the new die and I have to say I love it!  I made this little ice cream cone gift card holder and it was so easy!  I ran the Crumb Cake card stock through first to make the cone (and ice cream), then ran the piece through the Big Shot again using the Square Lattice textured impressions embossing folder to give the cone texture.  I used the Petal Cone die again to make the strawberry ice cream pieces and the Happy Birthday banner.  The rest is probably pretty self explanatory.  This yummy little gift card holder fits in our Small Open-End Envelopes found on page 171 of the catalog!!

Elegant Soiree Stamper’s Toolbox!

Tammy created this handy project and says "If you’re like me you have your go-to tools that you use frequently to create your cards and projects. I’ve created a Stamper’s Toolbox that sits on my desk and is at arm’s length. This holds things like SNAIL adhesive, Sticky Strip, Bone Folder, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink and handmade journal tags. I love creating journal tags and having them close at hand for those quick notes."
