Pals Guest Stamper: Deb Simonis

Guest stamper Oct 28,2012-001
Deb Simonis is today’s guest stamper and a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals.
This quick and easy card (perfect during the holiday rush) has a tag that pulls out to showcase a photo.   I love her use of the Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Brads and  Scallop Circle Punch (it’s even embossed) for the ribbon.

What a wonderful, personalized touch to pull out the tag and share a family photo.  These cuties are Deb’s grandkids.  Be sure to visit Deb’s Stampin’ Grounds Blog for directions on the card template and more of her paper crafting talent!

  1. Fantastic guest stamper!! Looking beautiful and colorful.

  2. Mary, This tag is so adorable, I love the colors it is really pretty,. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This has so many possibilities. If you didn’t have a photo, you could use the pull out tag for a sentiment. You could even be “green” by making more than 1 tag so the recipient could pass along the beautiful card if they had a clean envelope

  4. Thanks, Debbie for the tag ideas. I need htme. And thanks to Mary for some suggestions, too.

  5. I just now found out that there was a glitch in posting to my blog this morning – it’s fixed now and you should be able to see the directions. Thanks for taking time to look. The directions are posted for the sleeve and the tag!

  6. Clicked on the link and went to her blog–but no card or directions posted.

  7. Deb has created a fabulous gift card holder for the holoidays – Might just have to consider making at least one gift card holder in my upcoming 12-tags to Christmas Camp in November. Thanks for sharing Deb’s ADORABLE gift card holder with us – PERFECT!

  8. Is that a die where she has Season’s greetings stamped?

  9. I tried to get the measurements because I love this card but couldn’t find them? Maybe they aren’t posted yet?!

  10. Love the thought of this tag adoring a gift package! Look at the sweet little embossing she used on the circle where she threaded the ribbon! Great details and a terrific idea! I’ll stop by to get measurements!
