Silverware Holder with Envelope Punch Board

Spring started yesterday!  We are coming out of our winter hibernation and looking forward to parties and showers for graduation, weddings, engagements, new babies and even a few birthdays.

Presenting the silverware (cutlery) to your guests all prettily dressed up with the napkin is going to make your tablescape look so very professional and just show the extra care that you took for their benefit.

The little holder I am sharing today was the idea of my friend and member of my Stampin’ UP! team, Margaret, her version was Red, White and Blue which was perfect for Memorial Day.  As I explain in the video – you choose your colors to fit your occasion, or in my case to fit the paper napkin I had in my drawer!

Dandelion Wishes ~ Get Well Wishes

Dandelion Wishes has been a particular favorite stamp set of mine – I just love the delicate and wispy seed heads that is very versatile.  I like to use and share cards made with just one stamp set, two at a pinch if I am looking for the perfect greeting.  However the Dandelion Wishes set has a greeting suitable for a get well card, another which would be perfect for an engagement or wedding card and a third I would use for a card for my husband…………. I made a wish and you came true ~ just perfect 🙂

The colors I choose to use in my cards often starts in my ribbon drawer – I love to use it in my projects so it makes sense to start there!  For today’s card my eye was drawn to the 3/8 Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon so Pool Party is the main color for my card and the water coloring on the Lovely Lattice stamp set which is my focal point and I got for FREE.

Merry Merlot in a Tuscan Vineyard!

I just could not resist it………….. using the Tuscan Vineyard Stamp set with the Merry Merlot ink and card!!!!!!  With the exception of a little glint of gold I made this card monocromatic so the images really pop out.  I am thinking that this will be one of my sweet and simple cards where I use one stamp set, some card and ink, an embellishment and a couple of tools.

Card base:  11 x 4 1/4 Merry Merlot Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla Card

Layer 2: 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 Merry Merlot Card

Layer 3: 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 Very Vanilla Card

Banner 4 1/4 x 1 1/4 Merry Merlot and 4 1/4 x 1 Very Vanilla Card

Ink Colors: Merry Merlot

Layer 1 was stamped randomly with the Bunches of Grape Stamp, then attached to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  Layers 2 and 3 are popped up on  4 – 5 Stampin Dimensionals, as it the banner at the base of the card.

A trio of gold metallic pearls and we have a card ready to send.  I did not add a greeting to this card, partly because the stamp set does not have any but also I think it would work for any occasion, don’t you?
