A Housewarming Giftcard

I feel really blessed to have lots of young couples in my life.  It’s a joy to watch them settle into their marriages, and lately that has included moving into new spaces.  Mr. Maui Stamper and I were invited to a celebration last weekend; he couldn’t attend as he was busy surprising his sister for her birthday, but I went and had a fabulous time.

Being a practical sort of mama, I thought the perfect gift was a gift card to a home improvement store.  Being a Maui Stamper, it needed a little dressing up:

Maui Stamper Chevron Gift Card Bag

  • Stamps:  Oh Hello, On the Grid, Yippee Skippee and Day to Day (Project Life®)
  • Color Palette:  Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake
  • Accessories:  Antique Brads, Gold Clothespin, Big Shot and Polka Dots TIEF, Fringe Scissors, Circles Framelits, Word Window punch, Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder, Piercing templates, Chevron Gift Bags, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Older-than-the-hills-retired Ribbon.

Maui Stamper Chevron Gift Card BagSometimes the best things happen when you make a “mistake”.  I originally stamped the word “happy” in ink, but it needed some oomph so I decided to emboss it.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig (TOTALLY ESSENTIAL TOOL, friends) to stamp “happy” again in Versamark ink and must have jiggled it, because it was offset just a bit.  I think it’s PERFECT.
