Vintage Leaves Thank You

Posted by on Oct 4, 2017 in Big Shot, Thanks

Time to start posting!  Today’s share features Vintage Leaves–perfect for a fall card.  On the background, we have the Woodlands Textured Impressions. To make the colored leaf, I started out with a Whisper White piece of cardstock.  Then I sponged fall colors over the entire piece–Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  When the entire sheet was covered with color, I stamped the vintage leaves in Always Artichoke and cut them out with the coordinating framelit. The rest of this card is pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions, or would like more information about making this card, please contact me by phone, e-mail or messenger and I will be happy to help! Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Today’s share was created with Label Me Pretty stamp set, Night of Navy and Calypso Coral Ink, Pretty Label Punch, 5/8″ Crinkled Night of Navy Ribbon, Sea Side Textured Embossing Folder, Thick White Cardstock and dimensionals. I like how this card turned out–an original at that!  This is my September Thank You card for customers placing orders with me this month.  The Holiday catalogue is effective now so now is a great time to place that order to make your Christmas cards and gifts! Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Glossy Paper background and a Wink of Stella meet Delightful Daisy Bundle in today’s post. This card was inspired by Cindy Wilkinson. Colors used are Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Dapper Denim. I tried several color combinations last night and let the backgrounds dry over night. This morning before heading off to my other job, I made this card. Do you like it? To see it in person is even better!!! Thanks for visiting today! See you...

Giftable Greetings!

Posted by on Aug 24, 2017 in Birthday, Kits, Sympathy, Thanks

This is just a wee sampling of the August Paper Pumpkin kit.  This month’s kit included supplies for 8 cards, 8 envelopes and a lovely gift box with an acetate lid, a tag and a ribbon to tie the gift box.  What I especially loved about this kit was the photopolymer stamps, which can be used over and over again! Detailed step by step instructions are included, as well, a video is also available to see how to put the kit together.  If you’ve never tried Paper Pumpkin, then there’s a deal for you:  Buy one month and get the second month free.  If you’d like more information about Paper Pumpkin, please ask or check it out on You Tube. Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Daisy Thanks!

Posted by on Aug 23, 2017 in Big Shot, Kits, Thanks

Did you know the Daisy punch is the most popular punch that Stampin’ Up has had in the last five years!  Is it a wonder that since the new 2017-18 catalogue was released in June, that it has gone into back order status several times? I watched a Facebook Live episode by Tami White and Linda Collins and they featured Daisy samples on their show.  This is one of the cards they shared.  Although I made some changes, the layout is the same.  These are the Thank You cards I made for my customers this month.  I even stamped a daisy on the envelope. Besides preparing for classes and making thank you cards, I’ve also been working on projects for the Retreat in September!  Designing, photos of projects and steps as needed, preparing kits and tutorials and more.  I also sent out an e-mail to announce that The Retreat in a Box is available for purchase for $100.  If you weren’t able to attend the Retreat in September, the Retreat in a Box is your next best option.  Already, half of the boxes available are sold so if you know of anyone that might be interested in getting a box, let them know as soon as possible.  If you’ve already purchased your box, you are in for a treat and will be delighted with all the contents and amazing value! Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

Tiny Treat Box

Posted by on Aug 15, 2017 in 3D, Thanks

These tiny treat boxes are just the perfect size for a little treat!  Assembly of the boxes is easy, they are sturdy and easy to decorate!  In today’s sample, I added a piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, 1″ x 9″ and wrapped it around the box.  Then I added a Night of Navy Starburst punch and a layered circle on top, stamped with two small daisies and a sentiment.  The Daffodil 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon around the box tied in a bow and two Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes tie this box together perfectly. Thanks for visiting today.  Hope you can come back tomorrow to see another sample or two of how to use this tiny treat box.  Happy...
