Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! A bit drab and rainy around here, but I had a Stamp Club Saturday morning and was busy working on my stamping projects and website so I didn’t mind staying in.
Speaking of Stamp Clubs … our technique / product showcase this month was the “Sunburst Thinlits Die”. The groups loved the cards I designed for them, and I was telling them that they could cut 2 and do a slight twist … well, let me just show you!
I cut out two sunbursts, one in Very Vanilla and the other in the Gold Foil – they are so pretty together. I set the Vanilla on top of the gold and gave it a little twist so the gold peeked out. I then mounted the entire piece onto my Very Vanilla base. HINT: I use a lot of dimensionals on the back … you don’t want sections of the rays to drop down.
For my greeting, I opted out of the bundle and chose the “Suite Sayings” and the Thanks for Being You. Sometimes you have people who do wonderful things for you and you just have to say Thanks! A friendship that is golden … thus my color choices for my card.
I heat embossed my greeting in gold and punched it with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and matted it with the Gold Foil punched at 2″.
I couldn’t leave the inside plain, I had to continue with the “feeling” of the card so I chose the “Feel Goods” stamp set and heat embossed the “Those who bring Sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves” in gold. What a beautiful verse and how fitting … it really ties in with the theme of my card.
It may appear simple but it is a card packed full of thought and emotion. From the sunburst die to the sunshine verse … what a beautiful way to say Thank You!
Hope you enjoyed my card today. I love sharing different ways to use a product, it makes them much more versatile for you, and it won’t sit on the shelf (that is not good).
If you have a product you would like to see showcased on my blog … just add a comment below and hopefully I have it because I’d love to help you out.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope it’s a good one.
