At the end of October, I created a set of cards from Falling for Leaves for a CAS card (Clean and Simple). Three cards and envelopes in each bag made several people happy to win a Door Prize! Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron, Early Espresso, and Vanilla on this project. Corrugated embossing folder, Sprig punch (You HAVE TO get this punch!), and the stamp positioning tool. Actually a pretty tidy supply list!
I used the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool to knock out many sentiments, all perfectly aligned and here’s the best part: I cut the Cardstock for these sentiment pieces ahead of time! That’s new for me because I could never get my sentiments straight before! And, wow, did this go fast!
I don’t use Very Vanilla very often, but when Stampin’ Up! started carrying a thick Cardstock in it, I got some for card bases and I love it!
I used a masking technique to keep the back of the card clean of stamps and I really like the way it turned out. I simply adhered a piece of copy paper to my grid paper and slipped this card base right under it to the line. I’ve used this technique quite a bit when making Note Cards, too.
Customers are getting this card as their Thank You during the month of November, and the measurements will be included in their Newsletter. My Cards In The Mail program is a great way for you to get a card from me. The first card you receive is as my Thank You. You will receive another card for the next two months, too. One purchase, and you will receive three cards. What a happy mailbox, eh?
I’m off to Orlando on Tuesday to attend the OnStage live and celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary. Hard to believe I have already been with them 10 years! When I started rubber stamping in 1984, who would have known that a hobby could have grown to a teaching position? I was such a rookie!
