If you haven’t been living under a craft rock (I am sure there is a Pinterest Board for “Craft Rocks”), I know that YOU know that there are a bunch of new great products on their way from Stampin’ Up! But you can’t get them yet and I think it is just cruel to tease you by showing you what you can’t have. I have raised two children and I know teasing can only lead to no good. So today, I am going to show you something you CAN have—but only for a couple more weeks!
I fell in love with the Happy Congratulations stamp set in the Occasions catalog the minute I saw it. I wasn’t really sure what I would do with it but sometimes, you just hafta have it! And so I did. And you can see some of my previous posts here and here. You can customize your card for any event by switching up the color combo—Use pastels and it is a baby shower card/invite. Change the colors to match your high school or college colors and you have a graduation card/invite. Use the new incolors and you have a Catalog Kick Off card/invite (SHHHHHHH!).
Today, I wanted to use up some outgoing DSP ( Gingham Garden) for an envelope liner in a card for my sister’s birthday so that is where my color combo (Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight) came from:
At this point, decide on your greeting. Actually—I should have done this WAY before I did all the work of stamping, punching, and placing lanterns…..just in case something went wrong when stamping the greeting. You KNOW it could…and does happen! But today was a good day and it was fine.
To finish it off, I wanted to add a little “somethin’ somethin'” so I made a couple of bows and adhered them on.
Here is my sister’s birthday card. ” Practically perfect”…..just like her!
Ink and Paper: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Staz On Black, Melon Mambo, Gingham Garden
