Stamping Tip: The leaves were inked up with Daffodil Delight ink.  Before stamping onto the cardstock, a sponge dauber was used to apply Tangelo Twist to the edges of the stamp. Crushed Curry ink was applied with a dauber in between the Daffodil Delight and Tangelo Twist to transition the colors.

Day 1

Stamp Set – Tin of Cards

Ink – Tip Top Taupe
Accessories – Tip Top Taupe 1″ Dotted Lace Ribbon, Linen Thread, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

Day 1 Base

I used a piece of Linen Thread to “pinch” the Dotted Lace Ribbon together before popping up the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I am participating in a 7 Day Challenge to create a card and mail it out to someone.  This card is Day 1 for me.     #GiveThanksChallenge

I think that sometimes those of us who love to make cards, get so caught up in creating that we forget to send them out.  I challenge you to send out a card and thank someone for something!  Brighten someone’s day!

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy “Stamped” Snowflakes with Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set

People in central Wisconsin reported seeing snowflakes the other day!  Whoa!  I’m not quite ready for that yet – it’s only October.  When I looked out my window, I was happy NOT to see snow yet!  But snowflake/snowman stamp sets are another story.

I love paper snowflakes and snowflake stamps because they endure past the Christmas holidays.  When I decorate my house with snowflakes/snowmen, I know that they can stay around until Valentine’s Day at least.  More often, you will find me exchanging snow decor for spring and Easter things!

When you invest in the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and coordinating Snow Flurry Punch, you will be able to use it for a long time.  From now into February or March snowflakes are in.  Save 15% when you purchase both the stamp set and the punch together in the Flurry of Wishes Bundle.

Stamping Tip: The Flower Medallion Punch coordinates with the  second largest snowflake image in the  Flurry of Wishes stamp set.  Get double duty with that punch when you use it not only for flowers but now for snowflakes!

This is one of the cards that we’ll be making at my November Card Classes.  Join me to make some Christmas cards and enjoy the company of fellow stampers!
