Thank You Die and Around The Corner Card

Card, Thank You, Around the Corner, Petal Promenade

Today's creation is so quick, if you blink you might just miss it.  I believe thank you cards are something we should always have on hand to pop in the mail quickly when needed.  In today's video below you'll see how I used the Thank You Die (don't you love the font) and the ever so beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to create these lovely cards.

I wanted to a little something else to accent the Thank You layer and accomplished that using the Around the Corner Stamp Set.  Don't overlook this stamp set, as it has many different options to add the final touches to all types of cards.  My Whisper White Layer was cut using my favorite Rectangle Stitched Dies and a piece of our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets made adding the Thank You Die Cut a breeze.  Enjoy the quick creative video below and you can add this versatile stamp set and die to your craft stash by clicking the shopping links below as well.

Bubble Over Celebrate Card

Card, Bubble Over, Bottles & Bubbles Dies, Celebrate You Dies

I've been saving this adorable Bubble Over Celebrate card to share for springtime.  Well I almost waited too long.  I say that because the Bubble Over Stamp Set and the Bottles & Bubbles and the Celebrate You Dies are all retiring.  I want to thank Judy Langford-Brodie for creating this gem of a card and swapping with me back in Fort Worth.  Judy chose Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White for both the inks and cardstock at it just screams fun.  I absolutely love the bubbles that are in the Bubble Over Stamp Set as many times it's all in the details.

Tip - Cloth Tape for Measuring Difficult Shapes

Tip, Cloth Tape, Measuring, Stampin Up

In today's video we're going to tackle measuring difficultly shaped items.  If you're like me, tackling 3D projects for creations is so much fun.  But on occasion our item may be round, oval or just an irregular shape in general.  In times like this a typical ruler just won't get the job done, well if you want to measure and add and measure and add you can, but nobody has time for that.  Here's the simple solution, a cloth tape, yep, a cloth tape.  I had one in my mom's sewing kit I inherited and if you don't already have one, they are available in sewing sections of all the major stores.  Are you having a light bulb moment, I sure hope so.  


Here's a perfect example of how I obtained the correct measurements for our gorgeous Copper Tea Tin.  I created these on a Facebook Live and if you'd like to check it out simply CLICK HERE, yes that's heat embossing on the tin, just in case you're wondering.

Sending Hugs with Post Script and One For All Cards

Card, Post Script, One for All, Birthday

Sending Hugs in the mail is a wonderful thing.  It always amazes me how creating cards not only makes the creator happy but also makes the recipient of the creation happy, I say it's a twofer ;)
I've used two stamp sets that are retiring and I wanted to make sure you had the opportunity to grab them before they are gone forever.   My background was created with the Post Script Background Stamp and the lovely envelopes and sentiment stamp along with the Happy Birthday sentiment on the inside are both from the One for All Stamp Sets.  

Card, Post Script, One for All, Birthday

I started off with Nature's Twine for my color palette for this card.  The final colors are Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo, such a cheery combination.  I wanted the sending hugs to pop and the Melon Mambo Ink was perfect.  Using my Stitched Shaped Oval Dies and my Layering Oval dies allowed the sentiment to stand out against the Post Script background.  The final touch took me back to where I started by adding my Nature's Twine around the bottom of the card.  Remember, sending JUST BECAUSE cards are every bit as important as specific holiday cards, as everyone loves a hug in the mail anytime.
