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.
Today’s Stampin’ Supply List:
Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Little change is plans, the card I was going to share with you will be posted on Saturday. Today I wanted to share a “World of Thanks” with you.
Last night I had the pleasure of stamping with some wonderful ladies! Some new faces and some I haven’t seen it a while … it was so nice. We had a fun night.
So … here’s a “Thank you” to all my stampin’ friends who stamp with me and to all my on-line shoppers. You all make my job as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator a breeze!
I have a special on-line shopper who has chosen me as their demonstrator but because she has chosen the “No Contact” I cannot send a Thank You card… so please know that I appreciate you!
Love this card … how elegant and simple it is. Created with the World of Thanks stamp set.
Thanks so much for popping in on me today. I will be back tomorrow with my “promised” card.
Have a wonderful Friday … Hope it kicks off your weekend well.
Hello Stampin’ Friends and a Very Happy New Year to you!
I have enjoyed sharing samples and tips with you this past year … I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to check out my blog. And a huge Thank You for designating me as your demonstrator when you place your orders. I am grateful for your support.
Today I want to share a card with you that expresses my gratitude …
I just had to share the new “Botanical Builder” Framelits Dies and of course I teamed it up with the “Botanical Gardens” Designer Series paper.
Want to hear something really exciting? Stampin’ Up! not only bundled the framelits with the fabulous stamp set “Botanical Blooms” but they included the Designer Paper!! That really excites me because this fabulous bundle qualifies you for a FREE Sale-a-bration item!
Don’t you love the larger flower and how it cuts to create a double flower. What a quick and easy way to add dimension to your card, and besides … it just looks cool!
I also used the cute “Expressions Natural Elements” … I left them natural because I thought it looked best with the designer paper. Did you know that you can dye them by sponging ink directly onto them or heat emboss them to create a metallic look.
Thanks for coming over to my blog today … I look forward to bringing you even more card samples, scrapbook pages, and stampin’ tips! Also watch for more stamp camps, specialty classes and as always our Spring & Fall retreats.
I wish for you a year full of friends, good health, and what your heart desires.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
