Pocketful of Sunshine gifts

Before my trip to Thailand, I made up some little gifts to give a few people I knew were attending. The lotions/soaps varied, but each had this little tag attached using Pocketful of Sunshine.  (Sorry for the weird background…I didn’t remember to take a photo until the last one I left for our housekeeper.)

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base tag is 2 x 4-1/2 Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and punched at the top with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
  • The sun is punched with the Starburst Punch from Daffodil Delight cardstock and stamped with the You Dazzle Me greeting from Pocketful of Sunshine in Memento Black Ink.
  • The sunglasses from Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Berry Burst cardstock and cut with the Pocket Thinlits.  Two rhinestones were added to the sides of the glasses.
  • The tag was tied on the bottles with Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon and tied in a bow.

That’s it!  Loved handing these little gifts out in Thailand!

Pocketful of Sunshine

Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July holiday!  We attended a potluck dinner at the clubhouse of our new home and met lots of new neighbors!

 

I participated in WAY too many New Catalog swaps last month.  I committed to them before our move…not realizing how out-of-sorts the move would make me…not to mention that I wouldn’t be able to find my stamping supplies easily!  But, I felt that I would need some samples for my stamp clubs to see…and I wouldn’t be able to make them up myself!  So…good news is that I have a lot of new card samples…but they are wanting me to BUY more new stuff!  Of course…that’s the purpose, right?

 

Here’s one swap card I made using the new Pocketful of Sunshine.   I had to make 21 of them!  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those sunglasses!  I’ve been wanting something like them for a long time!  Paired them with the new Starburst punch that looks like a sun…and the yummy new Lemon Lime Twist bright cardstock!  Perfect!  This is actually the second version of the card…will show you the first one in a few days!

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Paper was placed along the right edge of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
  • Lucky Lime Twist Ribbon hides the seam and wraps to the back to adhere.
  • You Dazzle Me from Pocketful of Sunshine was stamped on Daffodil Delight cardstock and punched with the Starburst Punch then placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The sunglasses were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Lucky Lime Twist cardstock, then cut with the Pocket Framelits.  It was placed on the sun with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Two Rhinestone Jewels were placed on the sunglasses in the corners and then on the top of the Whisper White cardstock for a little bling.
