We’re in this Together Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share two cards with you!!  First let me start with some concerns about sharing / mailing our cards. Based on the information I have found … the virus only lasts 24 hours on cardboard (paper) yet they have found no evidence to the virus transferring by mail.

I prefer to play it safe, I have cleaned my supplies with beach water and / or sanitizer, and as you saw in my picture yesterday, my hand sanitizer is right on my work station.  If you have a cough or feel sick, I would suggest refraining from sending cards … which if you don’t feel good, is that last thing you feel like doing! Hopefully you get one that will cheer you up!

My first card … reflects the sentiment of yesterday.  I used the sentiment from the “Good Morning Magnolia” stamp set which was inside my card yesterday, is now the front of my card today ….

I used the pretty little boots filled with flowers from the March 2020 Paper Pumpkin to create my card.  The background is the “So Very Vellum” Specialty Designer Series paper that is a FREE product you can earn during Sale-a-bration. I have three cards that will feature the Vellum … on design for each color in the package.

The boot card features the “Pool Party Vellum” which really makes the boots “pop”.  The texture on the Vellum is already there so no need to pull out your BigShot for that.  The used a left-over die cut from the Stitched Rectangle dies. The cute little hearts come from the Paper Pumpkin kit and were enhanced with our Wink of Stella and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here are the supplies that I used for today’s cards. Paper Pumpkin is a great option for stamping while we have to be apart 😦  Plus … when purchasing the any of the Subscriptions listed below … you qualify for FREE Sale-a-bration items!

Here are the original designs … Mine are all alternatives!

My second card uses more boots … and features the “Soft Sea Foam” Vellum.  These boots come from the strip of boots that are used for the middle card, and are left over from the card I made yesterday.

I cut down the front of the note card enclosed in the kit and cut it in half … it represents the distance we have to keep between us at this time, but the sentiment (also included in this kit) shows that we are all in this together … and we will over come this ❤  Not just as a nation … but as a planet. Maybe this is God’s way of bringing us all together.

I have to mention that I used the Tombo All Purpose Glue to attach the Vellum onto all my cards.  I apply it lightly, over the lines of the embossed design and then smooth it out with my finger or a sponge dauber.  By doing it this way … you won’t get wrinkles from a heavy glue, and it won’t show up under your vellum 🙂

I have one more of the vellum colors “Purple Posy” to share with you tomorrow!! Meet you back here then.

Feel free to LIKE my Facebook page as well. I’m going to be sharing stamping tips and more. AND … I’m going to try a FACEBOOK LIVE … I will let you know when that is going to happen so you can join me!!

Thank You and Have a beautiful Sunday … Stay safe!

  1. I love your alternatives. I haven’t played with my kit yet but plan to make all of the cards and mail them to older folks from my church congregation. Hopefully the card will brighten their day and know that someone cares.
