When in doubt...


This will always be the perfect gift! 

Here's another look at the stamps included in the upcoming Lamppost Expressions Stamp Set

We all know how gift-cards are just the answer for everyone from your school crossing guard, to the teacher, and your picky sister (wait, is that just me??) so anyhoo, I made this fun gift-card holder out of a Bazzill Library Envelope in just a few minutes!! 

I can't say enough about these envelopes - they come in a pack of 12 for $3.50.  You CANNOT beat that!! not to mention they look adorable!  See for yourself:


I embossed all of the stamped images (only because I didn't want any smearing!) and of course for embellishment on the tag.

The lamppost and ground are water-colored, and the doggie is colored using Copics - I did cut him out and layered him, just to give him added "oomph" but you can certainly eliminate that step!  (I think I was cutting him out while watching one of the debates on CNN (certainly good to keep my hands busy in lieu of throwing stuff at the TV) :)

Here's a look at the inside tag I made with just a bit of natural white cardstock:


There you have it! Quick and easy (both to make, and on your wallet!) and you can certainly duplicate it quickly for everyone on your list!

Thanks for visiting!
