High Tide color blocked card

When is the last time you got a handmade card in the mail? Do you remember how it made you feel?   The other day, I went to the mailbox and was flipping through my mail when I saw a smaller envelope – a card envelope.  And handwritten on the front was my name with a return address label from my friend Julie Davison.  I literally stood there on the sidewalk thinking… why is Julie sending me a card?  I wonder what her card looks like! It wasn’t my birthday and it wasn’t for a swap.  So I eagerly opened … Read More

Kinda Eclectic Collaged Thank You Stampin' Up card

Today I wanted to share a card I created to send out as part of my customer thank yous.  I had gotten embarrassingly far behind on sending out thank you cards for orders over the last few months and so I wanted to make up some cards and make sure everyone knew how much I appreciated them and their support.  It took a while but it was great to sit and write a little note to each person.  Plus it was fun to take a big stack to the post office… say HAPPY MAIL!  🙂 So what is inside many … Read More

Jars of Love vintage card with Cupcakes & Carousels

Ok, I just had to share one of my favorite cards from the Build Your Stash card class by mail!  Check out this fun Sending Love card featuring the Jars of Love stamp set! When I originally started designing the class, I had been planning on focusing on the Better Together stamp set – because it is a great sentiment set – as well as the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper stack.  But when I pulled out this sunburst patterned paper from the pack, things just started going in a totally different direction.  And in the end, I felt the … Read More

What do you get when you’ve made a bunch of projects but then totally slacked off on sharing them on the blog?  A mad dash to start posting them all so you can see the fun ideas while you can actually still get the products if you want to make it yourself.  Novel idea, huh? 😉 Today I wanted to share a card that I made for my Stamp Club that was inspired by a card by Kim Williams.  I loved the basics of her card and just simplified it down to this version which I think is just so … Read More
