A Thankyou with a Flourish

I always like to have a few quick thank you cards on hand, and this design fits the bill.
I whipped up a batch of these in several different colour ways for my customer thank you cards a little while back. This one was my favourite, in Rose Red.
I've used the Retiring set Everything Eleanor (I'm going to miss that flourish!), along with Papillon Potpourri (thankfully NOT retiring)

Use-up-your-Paper-Stash Stamp-a-Stack

Do you have tons of Designer Series Paper that is begging to be used? I think we all do! Well this card design will get through lots of it in no time. These are the cards we are making in this week's classes. Everyone gets to choose their own DSP and sentioments, so all the cards will be one-of-a-kind.

To make these cards, simply cut your DSP to 10cm x 10cm (or 4" x 4") and then cut it on an angle about 2/3 of the way down. Then, attach the larger part to the top half of your card, and the smaller piece to the lower half. Stamp your greeting in the gap in the middle, and embellish as desired (I've added some paper strips and some punched elements to mine).
Just about everything I've used on these cards is retiring, including a few of my favourite sentiment sets (*sniff!*)

Triple Time Three Ways

I made this set of cards some time ago for publication in a Papercraft magazine. I showcased the "Triple Time" Stamping technique using the (retiring!) Everything Eleanor stamp set and (also retiring!) Petite Pairs stamp set. See the full Retiring List HERE

May Stamp-a-Stack Class

This is one of the sets of cards we'll be making in next week's Stamp-a-Stack Class. I thought I'd pop the class details here too, since this will be the last class I'm running for a while (see below). We head off on our Mediterranean Cruise in a few weeks, and then we are staying on to tour Munich, Bavaria, Salzburg, Switzerland, and then finally finishing up in Venice....needless to say, it will be the trip of a lifetime!
Lots of retiring products on these cards... This stamp set, the punches and all of these lovely embossing folders are retiring, and so is the ribbon and twine. My colour combo is Tangelo Twist (retiring), Hello Honey (Retiring), Pool Party, Island Indigo, Tip Top Taupe and Very Vanilla.

I'd love to see you next week:
Stamp-a-Stack Class
Come along and stamp a stack of cards, so you'll always have a card ready when you need one. We'll be using some retiring products from the Annual Catalogue. Ribbons, embellishments and envelopes are included in your class fee. You'll make 8 cards for $20 (if you BYO Stampin' Up! adhesive and Dimensionals), or 8 cards for $25 (if you use my adhesive)
Tuesday 3rd or Wednesday 4th 7pm for a 7:30 start
Wednesday 4th 9:30am for a 10am start

A mouse in a teapot

I always like to make a little gift for my team members at Stampin' Up! events, and I always try to make it mouse-themed (my team name is Stampers Anony-"mouse"). At our recent OnStage Event in Sydney, I handed out these little goodie bags. I found some tea-pot stamped cookies and popped them into a 4"x6"cello bag, decorated with a pretty topper. The punch-art mousie is clipped on with a peg, and could be worn as a badge at the event.
The punch art is mainly just circles, but the mouse's head is made using the balloon punch.
I'm so sad that the Cups and Kettles framelits are retiring - I don't think I'll be parting with mine!

More Balloon Celebrations Watercolour Lifting

When I demonstrated the Watercolour Lifting technique recently, I ended up with quite a few sample pieces that I decided to turn into cards. I couldn't decide which colour card base to use - Island Indigo or Marina Mist... Which do you prefer?
