Hey, Love Little Critter Thank You Cards

Hey, Love Little Critter Thank You Cards

These little critters were so fun to create into this simple yet adorable thank you card. For this card set I used a Stampin’ Up! Valentine’s Day stamp set called Hey, Love. (Forgive me for calling them Hey, Valentine in my photos…oops!) This set is featured in our Occasions Catalog and is available until May 31st.

Here is how I made my cards:

I first used a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and heat embossed each critter I wanted. I then, took my Stampin’ Blends and colored in each of my critters. Third I fussy cut each critter out. It just took a matter of minutes and made them super cute!!

Second, I took four sheets of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the brand new (and awesome!) Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

After I die cut out the four rectangles I stamped a background splot of ink, using a terrific background stamp set, Artisan Impressions.

I used glue dots to attach my critters and I stamped in black Thanks, from the stamp set: Thankful Thoughts.

Last but not least, I adhered everything to my coordinating card bases at an angle to have fun.

I hope you enjoyed these cards! I can’t wait to send them out. I am always in need of thank you cards and these will certainly come in handy.

If you would like any of the supplies to recreate these cards or something similar please shop my online store or contact me directly. I am happy to help!

Thank You Easel Calendar Cards For My Customers ~ Using Abstract Impressions

I love to spoil my customers with goodies and because we are starting a brand new year I decided to make easel card calendars. They are very bright and cheery with the colors I chose. The sentiment comes from my December Paper Pumpkin kit, which also was a calendar project.

I purchased my complete tear away calendars from Taylor Expressions. They are durable, very inexpensive and ship quickly!

Recipe for Making the Card

I started with choosing a Bermuda Bay cardstock piece. I measured it 4.25″ x 11″ and scored it at 2.75″ and 5/5″. I also cut a piece of Bermuda Bay for the front of the card measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″. I stamped on a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5.25″ to frame around the blue. I also used a 1″ x 4.25″ piece of Whisper White to “catch” my card and keep it up.

I knew right away I wanted a cheery stamp set and went with Abstract Impressions because I could do random stamping to make my card. It turned out perfectly!

Thank you for stopping by today! I was excited to show you my project because they are going in the mail and I just know my customers are going to love them.

See you soon!

XOXO,

Happy New Year Cards ~Using Warm Hearted Host Set

Let’s face it, if you are like me you forgot to send a few Christmas cards out. Or, maybe, you decided you were too busy to send Christmas cards and so you are now sending greetings in the New Year. That is totally okay, no judgement here! I plum just forgot about seven people off my list. That last week before Christmas gets to be so hectic that if the card didn’t get mailed, it was automatically waiting until the New Year.

These are perfect, HAPPY cards to welcome in the New Year and to make sure those you love receive blessings for the New Year.

I used the Warm Hearted Host set from the Holiday catalog. To earn this stamp set you have to place an order of $150 or more in product, before taxes and shipping, and you have to do it before January 2nd and 11pm MT. The catalog is soon ending and this stamp set will be retired.

Don’t worry, you can always ask to borrow mine.

Warm Hearted

Happy New Year! I hope you are safe, warm and having fun!

Thank you for stopping by!

XOXO,

December 2018 ~ Paper Pumpkin ~ Day By Day Alternatives

Making alternatives is not something I enjoy doing because I don’t always like the outcome. But, I am challenging myself by doing something new and this month’s kit proved to be a great jumping off start.

My first card was simple! A birthday card for my little. It turned out cute, just like her.

My second card is a great reminder to start every day fresh. I plan to send it as an encouragement card. The colors remind me of the 80’s with the bright crazy patterns. (Yes! I just dated myself!)

My third card is using a sentiment from the stamp set: Beautiful Day. It goes with the theme that every month, I am thinking of you! I know I will find the perfect person to send this card too.

I hope you enjoyed my attempt at alternate ideas. I know Paper Pumpkin has more ideas on Pinterest. Good luck and have fun!

XOXO,

December 2018 ~ Paper Pumpkin Kit ~ Day By Day

The Paper Pumpkin team has made an important discovery: Customers LOVE, LOVE, LOVE calendars. So naturally (since we aim to please!) they asked their concept artist to develop the cutest 2019 calendar ever. She obliged, creating the perfect, banner-shaped monthly calendar that you can hang from the wall—at home or in your cubicle at work—using the lovely weave ribbon included with the kit. We also give you TWO Classic Stampin’ Spots in delicious Grapefruit Grove and refreshing Pool Party so you can stamp the white die-cut stickers and create your own topper for each month. If you’re a super-nice crafter who plans to share this kit with a friend, we’ve included gold foil tags—one to tie to the clear box with baker’s twine and some extras which you can use for holidays and birthdays. We can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year than by making this adorable calendar—maybe, if you are lucky enough to watch the snow fall outside or sip on a cup of hot tea. Don’t you agree?

Kit Includes:

Each Day by Day kit comes with 18 calendar pages, 1 printed gift box, 1 clear box lid, 1 printed chipboard backer, 1 sheet gold foil tags, 5 sheets white die-cut stickers, 3 yards. blue weave ribbon, and 1 yd. baker’s twine. And don’t forget the exclusive stamp set and Grapefruit Grove and Pool Party ink spots!

There are also lots of alternate uses for leftover pieces of your kit. Here are some examples and come back soon to find more from me too! That’s right, this month I am also jumping in and making come alternates.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

XOXO,

The Sprig Punch is so fun! I made a Wreath for my Mantel~

The Sprig Punch is so fun! I made a Wreath for my Mantel~

Sprig Punch Wreath

I love this Sprig Punch in the holiday catalog. It comes in a fun bundle, but I just wanted the punch. It is perfect for punching a couple sprigs for added elements on your card or a lot of punches, in tons of colors, for a wreath!!

I saw someone in Germany make these adorable wreaths using all sorts of color combinations and I thought, “oh, I can do that!”, but then when it came down to constructing it, it was tricky. I do like my end result although not as round as I had originally wanted.

Photo of wreath

My wreath is adhered to a piece of thick cardboard, covered with whisper white cardstock, measuring 7″ x 7″.

I started by simply punching out sprig pieces in Garden Green, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz. I then purchased a buffalo check ribbon from an online distributor, to finish it up!

Sprig Punch Mantel Wreath

To build my wreath I started with all three of my sprig colors, a piece of thin ribbon and some tear-n-tape.

I cut my thin ribbon about 9″ long and placed tear-n-tape across one side of it and remove the backing. Then I literally just took one sprig at a time and lined them up one following the other.

The ribbon helps to give the wreath shape. It took me about ten minutes to finish it to my liking. I then tear n taped it to my backing.

I didn’t love it at first. It was trick to get “perfect” and I fussed with it. But when I was all said and done and I had it on the mantel, I liked it. A lot!

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate the support and if you’d like to get your own Sprig punch follow the simple directions at the bottom of my post. I love to spoil my customers and would be honored if you shopped with me!
