Yay...it is Saturday! Yay...I slept in! It was weird getting up so late (7:40, usually I'm up by 6:30) but apparently I really needed the sleep! Anyway, I wanted to make a gift card holder for one of the people that worked registration at VBS this year. Nicole was always on top of things. Always trying to come up with new and better ways of making registration easier for everyone, and ALWAYS had an upbeat attitude about the whole thing! Because of that I bought her a Starbucks gift card (and found out she likes a different coffee shop better...ugh!). Anyway, I knew what type of gift card holder I wanted to make as I've seen them on other blogs so I Google'd "rubber stamped gift card holders" and found what I was looking for on Dawn's blog. The tutorial is a video tutorial and is really easy to follow so if you like this go check it out!

I used just the coffee cup from the Stampin' Up! set called Pun Fun, colored it (not my best job I must say), layered it on some Berry Bliss paper, used a Purely Pomegranate belly band, highlighted it with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen, and taadaa...it was done! An impressive looking gift card holder but so easy to make!

Today should bring some more time to stamp and I'm excited about that! We are to get up to 100 degrees today and 101 tomorrow so I imagine we'll have the water slide out today, too!

Have a super Saturday everyone!

This is adorable. I love the Gelly Roll pens and I haven't used them since Christmas. This card makes me want to go and get a warm cup of coffee. It is breezy today. The weather is fickle.
