3x3 Mini Gift Cards and Tote

Good morning everyone,

I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted! Work is still crazy and shows no sign of letting up. Stamping, right now, is a distant memory.

It rained Saturday and I planned on getting out the supplies but had to convert my closet from summer to winter apparel first. By the time I got that done, I was pooped!

However, when I was in the closet I found an entire hat box full of 3D projects I'd made so thought I'd post some of those! This cute little note box uses the scallop edge envelope Big Shot Sissix die with Designer Series Paper (DSP). I then stamped the flower, used the five petal punch to punch it out, the Sissix die Little Leaves for the leaves and adhered it with a Build-a-Brad using the same paper as the insert.

Then I made a series of four cards using the same DSP and the Trendy Trees stamp set.

I just love these little trees! They're so versatile.

I used brads for blossoms on this one. (Hint: I've used red brads for apples in the fall cards!)

I also used the scalloped edge punch for the white scallop.

This one has some sponging on the edges too. I put a flower brad in the center of the stamped image and used the scalloped edge punch in a different way here.

Just slip the little notes (they are 3x3 notes) into your little carrying case and you're all set with a quick gift. Our Stampin' Up! Love Note or Mini Envelopes fit this size of card beautifully. They're so awesome with gifts, care baskets, or as a hostess gift.

I probably won't blog again until next weekend. Until then, have a wonderful week!
Much love and joy,
