Rustic Daisy!

Rustic Daisy!

Use those scraps! I am a minimalist so I don’t save the smallest of paper pieces, BUT, when it comes to the pretty papers, like the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Pack, I am all about trying to incorporate the smallest scraps into a project.

This card came together fairly easy!  I had some leftover pieces and promptly arranged on my cardstock base.  I punched out a few daisies using the Daisy punch and cut them in half.  Then layering them on top of each other slightly off kilter, I used my bone folder to gently pull so that they bowed a bit and put on a Stampin’ Dimensional to keep them popped up!

I added a Daffodil Delight cardstock center, some leaves in Old Olive cardstock from the Bouquet Bunch Framelit set and a sentiment.  I did cut and layer the sentiment with some leftover DSP and added a bow of Linen Thread.

How do you use your scrap papers?

Vintage Leaves for Fall

Vintage Leaves!

Today I wrap up the week with a quick and simple idea for either a birthday or thank you card.  I just adore the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set.  Here I stamped the three leaves in Fresh Fig, Old Olive and Crushed Curry for a wonderful and warm feel to Autumn.

Freebie Friday!

It’s Friday!  Or, Fri-YAY which means it is time for a FREEBIE!  I have an awesome gift for you today!  For November, I thought it would be good to get a jump on your thank you cards for the upcoming holiday season.

Everyone needs to send thank yous when you get a gift.  I’ve just made it easier for you to add these little cuties to your handmade cards or gift tags.

When I don’t see a stamp in my collection that fits the bill, I set about to create one that I can easily punch out or use a framelit with.  While I have lots of thank you stamps, sometimes the font doesn’t work with the card or project I have in mind.  So I set about to create something that I know I love and hopefully, you like as well.

Simply download this 8 1/2″ x 11″ onto your favorite white cardstock.   Each Thank You sentiment can be used with your 2″ circle punch from Stampin’ Up!  

Ideas for use:

  • handmade cards
  • packaging
  • stationery
  • tags and bags
  • gift wrap
  • scrapbook pages
  • whatever else you can think of…

And a quick card idea using these sentiments.  I love the NEW! Starburst punch that pairs nicely with 2″ circle punch.  As for the embossed leaf background.  This nifty Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is brand new as well.  It is called Layered Leaves and you can see it here.

Let me know what you think of these sentiments.  I can’t wait to hear!

Stamping Is The Best Therapy!

Stamping Is The BEST Therapy!

It is hard to give myself permission to give myself time off! (Let me tell you, it IS hard!) Thank you for checking in to see how I am feeling. I am feeling a little bit better this afternoon, but I fatigue easily.

One of the things that I wanted to share is that I am overwhelmed by your outpouring of affection! Each and every card, flower arrangement, phone call, email, text or meal means so much to me. I guess you could say it is like one HUGE hug! I consider everyone an angel on my shoulders!

This sweet little hand carved angel has been watching over me.

IMG_2524 (1)One of the many things that I have come to learn is being better at receiving.  It is hard and I am getting lots of practice.

mantelYour gifts and flowers have all brought me much encouragement and I have certainly never felt so loved during this difficult time.

flowersIt is sometimes so overwhelming that words cannot express how truly grateful I am that you have reached out to me!  I am not sure what tomorrow brings and I have lots of fears, but I know that I am very blessed to have so many wonderful and caring people behind me.

Bridgeport Hospital and it’s staff have been wonderful.  The doctors and staff of the Norma Pfriem Breast Center have been caring and kind professionals and I thank them wholeheartedly.

But, last Thursday, Ed and I received news that deflated my positive balloon. The results of my pathology report came back that I had Stage 1 cancer and an appointment with an oncologist was scheduled for Jan 30th. The bright side of my mastectomy is that my lymph nodes are clear. I am not sure where my journey and recovery will take me, but you can be sure that I will stay in touch in the next week or so.

I am taking advantage of this afternoon to write to you and get some thank you notes finished.  I wanted to show you that you don’t need to send anything elaborate for your thank you notes.  I will be sharing a few ideas over the next few weeks.  (I have a lot of them to stamp and write.)  Like the post title says, “Stamping is the BEST therapy!”

I fell in love with the Swirly Bird Bundle a few months ago when the Annual Catalog came out.  I think it is versatile.  So much so, that I used it for some Christmas Cards this year.

To make your thank you cards even easier, add a set of Note Cards and Envelopes, either in Whisper White or Kraft.  They are cut and scored for you.
