Say “THANKS” with style …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’m going to show you an alternative project that you can do with your February Paper Pumpkin.

I really meant to post earlier but last night I was not feeling up to par so I sat down on the couch and before I knew it, it was about 3 am … with all the lights and TV on! Needless to say … I shut everything off and went to bed! Must have really needed sleep … lol.

Yesterday you got to watch the Stampin’ Up! video on how to make the Filled with Gratitude project, here’s mine …


I took the negative (or leftover) piece of felt and decided to create something with that. First, you have to cut it because it comes 2 per sheet. I used a ruler to draw a line where I wanted to cut, then used my “Craft Scissors” … it works great!

Because the felt piece is larger than a regular size card, I designed it to fit into a business size envelope! You’ll need to cut your full piece of cardstock (I used Soft Suede) down to 9-3/4” x 7-7/8” and fold in half lengthwise.


I really wanted it to pop so I matted it with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper! I did use Mini Glue Dots to hold the felt piece onto the glimmer paper.

I then popped up that piece with dimensionals and attached it to a piece of Pool Party and stamped “you’re the best” from the Simply Wonderful stamp set found in the Sale-a-bration catalog. The entire front was then attached to the Soft Suede.

Living a life of gratitude seems to bring more wonderful people in your life, so I try very hard to show people I appreciate them. If you have a special waitress, hairdresser or UPS man … this would be a great way to say “Thanks”!


I’ve added a piece of Pool Party to the inside and punched a partial “Decorative Label” in the center, then trimmed the sides with the “Extra Large Oval”.

The “YOU’RE SIMPLY WONDERFUL” also comes from the Simply Wonderful stamp set found in the Sale-a-bration catalog. Once attached … just slip some cash or a gift certificate for a fun touch.
