Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters


  Hi everyone and welcome to my 5th challenge for "Anything but a Card".
This is a pretty easy one this time around and hopefully something you
all can use.  I keep mine in my purse, so it doesn't get misplaced.

   I used Tami's Special Delivery stamp set and the flowers from Picture
It, but there are so many images you can stamp to decorate this
project.  I have attached a template for you to use for the base.

  After I completely added all my DP and images, I applied two coats of
Mod Podge to make my holder a little sturdier- to survive life in my
purse. LOL

Postage Keeper TEMPLATE is ABC challenge 5 instructions.pdf

My Challenge:

 I would like you to use the template (attached above) and create this Postage Holder.  Decorate with any colors and papers you like, along with stamped images
that will bring your design together. There are so many ways you can
decorate this, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with, for
this challenge. This holder could also be used to hold business cards, if you use them.


  Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag STVABCKK5.  You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did!

In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, that your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE!  Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking
up something you've created before.

  Please link your photo back here, so everyone can admire your work!

  You have until next Monday, April 5th , at 8pm CST, to upload your sample.  One
winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at
$24.95 or

Adorable! Totally going to play! :)
What lovely holder thanks for the template too!off to have ago...
I'm definitely going to have to give this a try, my stamps are always getting mangled in my purse. And what a great idea to use the modge podge--never would have thought of that.
Great project Karen!
This is adorable!! I just printed out the template :), thanks.
OH this is WAY cool Karen! I am most definitely in need of something like this too!
Great Idea.....will have to try this...
This is soooo amzing! I sure hope I can play along!!! Love the way yours came out!
Fun project, Karen! Your sample is great. Thanks for the tip on the mod podge.
You've been spying on me again! LOL! What a terrific idea - I have partial slips of postage scattered here and yon. This will really come in handy. I think I'll make one for me, and one for DH! Thanks for a great idea!
Karen, one again you have a great idea. I couldn't wait to try this. It was quite easy but fun. It was my first time using mod podge and I am glad that I now know what it is used for. I can't wait to use it.
great project, Karen! I love the dsp that you used. I don;t usually carry stamps in my purse so I'll have to think of something else to carry in here. Can't wait to try this one out. I like your idea for the mod podge.
