A Gift Idea for Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is a perfect time to recognize all the wonderful moms in your life! When my daughter was little I was new in the community and joined a moms playgroup to meet people. Those wonderful women became “my village” from potty training to empty nests! Their friendship is a blessing! Today’s project would be a lovely gift for any of the moms in your life!

I have been on a roll making these oyster shell trinket holders. There are so many uses for these! (*If you missed my previous posts featuring these shells, you can click HERE or HERE.)

I took advantage of the CLEARANCE SALE and purchased the gold boxes which are the perfect size for these shells. The inspiration for the box came from a card design (found on page 28) in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

I cut the pansy and leaves from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper using the Pansy Dies. The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set (*one of my retiring favorites!!!). I love how the box coordinates with the shell! The bumblebee trinket is the perfect finishing touch! You can view the complete list of products used below.

Here’s a SPECIAL OFFER FOR MOTHER’S DAY…. You can purchase the pansy gift box and shell for $20 (includes shipping & handling)! These shells are the latest craze for decor and gifts.  I have seen them in boutiques and gift shops priced much higher. If you want/need a Mother’s Day gift for a friend, sister, aunt, mom, grandma…I’ve got you covered. This one of a kind gift comes ready to give wrapped in the pansy box. You can even have it shipped directly to the recipient! I have a limited number ready to ship immediately. To order, email me (j.stark@goeaston.net) with “Mother’s Day Gift” in the subject. I accept Paypal or check.

A Special Fold Slimline Card for Andrew’s Birthday

My son’s birthday was a couple of weeks ago. We waited until he visited this weekend to celebrate a belated Easter and birthday together! I find it harder to buy for my son the older he gets! (I also find it hard to believe that I have a 35 year old son!!!! LOL) He lives in Rhode Island and even though our recent move made the drive easier and a bit closer; the tolls add up fast! So this year we decided to gift him with an E-ZPass (hoping he will come visit more often). I love to make my cards coordinate with the gift so I pulled out some retired Designer Series Paper (World of Good) for his card.
Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays masculine slimline card with World Of Good Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love this simple layout for a masculine card! I created a slimline card with a pocket so I could fit the E-ZPass application inside. (You can do the application process online if you have the vehicle registration information but I wanted to enclose his “gift” inside the card.) *This slimline pocket card works great if you want to enclose a check, cash, or “coupon”  inside. (We sometimes make our own coupon gifts, “Good For….”.)  This card design makes it easy to change up the DSP for a feminine card, wedding card, etc.
Stampin' Up! Balloon Adventures slimline masculine card with inside pocket holder for cash or check - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The inside sentiment is from one of my favorite retired stamp sets, Balloon Adventures. It was the perfect choice to go with this “travel” gift set. I like to change it up and add a little more interest by stamping on DSP when possible. I cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
Here’s the details to make this card:

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card Base – Basic Black: 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 3 1/2 and 7
  • Designer Series Paper – Front of Card: 3 1/4 x 5 1/8, cut 2 @ 3 x 1 5/8
  • Designer Series Paper – Inside card: 1/2 x 8 1/2 (pocket), 3 x 4 1/2 (sentiment)
  • Designer Series Paper – Envelope: cut 3 @ 1 x 3 1/2

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Fold and burnish card base. Staple inside pocket on ends. Cover staples with DSP strip.
  2. Stamp sentiment on DSP. Adhere the 3 DSP pieces to front of card. *I added a special touch using Black Matte Dots to the map DSP to show the travel route from state to state.
  3. Stamp sentiment on DSP, cut with Stitched Rectangle Die, adhere inside card.
  4. Adhere DSP strips to the front of the envelope.
