More Money Envelopes

Just made some more money envelopes.
This time I used some digital Hanukkah sets


Dreidel, Dreidel Digi Word Art Set

Light, Love, Hanukkah Set 2

The top set is called Dreidel,Dreidel Word art set
and the bottom set is Light, Love,Hanukkah set2

This is how you make the envelope:
Start wit a card of 8 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch
and score the card at 3 and 6 1/4 inch.

You can use plain paper or decorative paper.

To close the envelope you need a strip of
8 1/4 x 2 inch and fold it around the envelope.

Inside we make the compartment for the money.
For this we use an ordinary envelop.
Lick it and close it!

Now fold it double and cut the sides.
Make sure the half of the  envelope
is 2,75 inch.

Use some double sided tape to fasten the envelope
inside the card.also tape the two sides together inthe middle.

The compartment looks like this. One part for a card
and the other side for the money.

Now we are ready for some decoration.

Print some images for tags inside the envelop
to write your wish.

And here you see the finished front of the 
envelope. I printed some images and  used a
circle punch and a scalloped punch tomake
the embellishemnt on the wraparound the envelope.

Also i printed the dreidel music in  line and glued the 
strip on top of the envelope.

If you made one,you see it is a 15 minute job to make them!

and have a creative day!

Hanukkah Gift card

This gift card idea is absolute super easy.
I found it on the blog of Meg Loven
Thank you so much for your idea.

You find all the instructions on how to make
this gift card on her blog.
I started with folding this turquoise cardstock
at 3 and 6 1/2 inch. Then I took out a matching
roll of washi tape and decorated the front.

The folded card is helt together by a kind of 
belt. I used a colored strip of paper. The  chanukia
(candele holder) is a vintage stamp from Stampin'Up!.
After coloring with pencil I added  tiny yellow
 sticky gemstones being the flames of the candle.

The circle and scalloped circle is a set of spellbinders.
Inside the folded card is a normal size envelope.
Folded in half and glued to the inside.

I made a tag on one side for a message
and in the other side of the envelope you 
can insert the money.

The candles on the inside are by  Posh Impressions.

Club Scrap Holiday Blog Hop

Thank you so much for visiting my blog
after you have seen Trica's awesome project

If you loose your way, you can always go to
the Club Scrap Blog,where you find
all the participants for the hop.

I choose the Homemade Holiday paper collection
to use for my projects.

Sharing with you today I have a 
scrap page, a light project and a 
Hanukkah card with a technique tip!

Ijust had to have the Homemade Holiday paper
and unmounted stamps. I have been having so muh fun
with my grandson in the kitchen, so this paper is
just perfect to use for my weekly scrap pages.

You find the Holiday colection papers and stamps HERE.

I am abig fan of the keepcalm sentiments
and so this one was perfect and so true.
Cooking and baking is a wonderfulway
of keeping the kids busy and calm.

I used the gingerbread man stamp on
shrink plastic. Colored with pencil and made a hole
before shrinking to add as an embellishemnt to the picture.

And this is just the cutest project to do. On the
Lakes blog hop I had an easellight card and while i was
searching for some more ideas I came acros this wonderful
idea at Splitcoaststampers, where you can find
 the complete tutorial and download the template.

Here is the video tutoral, so you don't have to search.

I used a sheetof Homemade Holidays paper
to print the template on the backside and 
used stamps from Gnome for the Holidays
to decorate this paper lantern.

Again I stamped some of the cookie images on
shrinkplastic and used them for embellishemnts.
(don't forget topunch the hole before you heat it!

The roof is not fastned so you can easily add
the battery-powered tea light inside.

As today is also the first day of Hanukkah
(this Jewish Holiday lasts for 8 days),
I have made a card with the Homemade
 Holiday Collection paper in combination with 
the Hanukkah stamps from 2006.
Yes, time for a new set....hopefully next year.

Here is the finished Hanukkah card
with a wonderful easy background technique
that makes the background sparkle.

For this you need the cheapest bleach,
a plastic container,
kitchen towel
goldden glimmer mist
and your rubber stamps.

Fod the kitchen towel in a way that you have 4layers
and put this in the plastic container. This is going to
be your stamp pad. Pour some bleach on it
and add glimmermist spray for the sparkle.

Use your stamp on this stamp pad for
stamping on dark paper for the best result.
Sometimes you have to try a few pieces.
You do not see the effect right away. it needs
alittle time for the best effect and to be dry!

After using your stamp, clean it by holding
it under the tap with running water a minute
and dry it off. I have used bleach more often
for stamping and it hasn't affected my stampsat all.

Well this was it for today.
You need more inspiration?
Hop on  to the so talented Wendy
and see what she has come up for you:

You are so lucky this month for
Club Scrap has another Blog Hop planned
to end this year well! 

Happy Holidays,

Cristmas inspiration day 12: tag

Today I have a multi functional tag for you.

I have this wonderful punch by Stampin Up!
I bought it only recently but I have seen 
so many wonderful ideas with it, I wanted it!!
So here is my Christmas idea:

I used Club Scrap Dungerees papers.
I started with cutting a piece of kraft colored paper
6 x 2 inch.
Then I punched the tag on both sides
and folded the tag in half.
For stamping I used the  unmounted stamps
from Club Scrap called Gnome for the Holidays.
I took the leave stamp and eart stamp ink
to cover the tag completely
and only colored the berries in red with pencil.

Next I stamped the predent on red paper with
the same eart ink pad. Cutting  out  the present
and covering the bow with glitter glue.

Add the present with foam tape to the tag
and stamp the to/from on a white piece of
paper,so you can write the name of the  receiver.

Inside you can add: a cane, choclate or even money.

You can have it dangling in your tree, because it is
decorated on both sides, or have it hanging from
your present.

This is the last of my Christmas inspirations.
Hope you liked them!
