SU Petal Potpourri Gift Card Holder

February 2, 2015

I just got back from an awesome Stampin’ Up Leadership Conference in Orlando.
It was packed with inspiration, friends, and fun!
We were all given this cool bag to tote all of our goodies!


Here is my pal, Debbi Muche, who was “one” of my babysitters for the event…

Cindy and Debbi

and my upline Linda Heller and my up, upline Mari Fredericks…

And, yes, I even had the pleasure of meeting up with Brian King, too! My hubby had to leave a bit early because of a flight the next morning, and I got to sit beside Brian on the way home from the Managers reception and dazzle him with my interesting conversation even though he was texting Linda that the lady sitting next to him would not shut up…LOL.


 Here is one of the swaps I created to share with other demonstrators who attended.

I think this project wins the prize for using the MOST SU items!

SU Petal Potpourri Gift Card Holder Slanted

I used the Gift Card Envelope and Trim Thinlits, which is a carry-over product from the Holiday Catalog, and the Large Polka Dot embossing folder to make the gift card holder- super simple.  I used the new super cool  B.Y.O.P. stamp set for the sentiments on the outside and inside. The outside sentiment was die cut with the Project Life framelits, and the upper inside sentiment was die cut from the Word Bubbles framelits. The B.Y.O.P. is a seriously versatile stamp set that serves the need we all have for giving gift cards.

SU Petal Potpourri Gift Card Holder Inside

I stamped the flower from the new Petal Potpourri stamp set, and punched it out with ease using the new Flower Medallion coordinating punch (that also works with the new Crazy About You stamp set.) The leaf comes from the Flower Patch stamp set that also has matching framelits! What could go better with the focal flower than the Flowerpot DSP? I pulled all the colors for the swap from that DSP- Lost Lagoon, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Night of Navy.

I decided to hold it together in the back with some Crushed Curry Sale-a-bration ribbon that you can get FREE with a $50 order during SALE-A-BRATION 2015!
Oh, and the cute little button is also from the SAB Ribbon/Button Accessory Pack.
