I hope this photo shows how stinking cute this card is...cause it's a keeper!  I learned how to make this card from my friend Susan last wkend at my annual spring retreat!  It is so cute in person...and I've been waiting to share a super cute card to share some super cool news! 

 A few weeks ago I earned the annual Stampin' Up! getaway trip!!!!  In September, Jesse (husband) and I will be going on a long wkend away all paid for by Stampin' Up!  I just want to give a huge shout out to all of you for your support with my business this past year to help me earn this wonderful trip.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Now I am going to share with you how to make this uber adorable card!  The body of the card is cut with one of the square framelits, you could also use a paper trimmer but the square framelit is easier!  The chalkboard paper is stamped with whatever words you desire using chalk does take a minute or two to dry!  The little banners I just punched and then started in the middle and worked out!  The Bakers twine is just the 2 the banners close together and they look connected...I did place each one on a dimensional! 
Card Recipe:

Stamp Set:  Hardwood Background Stamp and Watercolor Thank You
Ink:  Memento Black and Aquamarine Colorbox Chalk Ink
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Chalkboard Paper, Flowerpot DSP
Misc:  Banner Punch, Island Indigo Bakers Twine, Square Framelits, Envelope Liner Framelit

This is the perfect card to give to a teacher for the end of the year thanking them for their service and dedication!

Butterfly Basics Flowerpot DSP Class Card

Friday, April 24, 2015

Here is a card we're doing this week in the Fun With DSP class!  I just love the Butterfly Basics stamp set and thinlit!  In working with the Flowerpot DSP I found it to be very versatile....we made a guy card and several female cards along with a card pouch that would be appropriate for a young girl!

Hey in case you haven't heard there is a great special going on right now too:  

  1. Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount--just $21.20!  OR
  2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at a 15 percent discount and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!
I know I have shared this u-tube before but some of you are just getting your sets now so maybe a quick review again....personally I find if you go back and forth about 4- 6 times with the big shot it really helps to release all those little pieces of paper...and of course you get a little arm work out in too!  If your getting this post via email click the flying stamper to watch the u-tube!
