Clean and Simple with Suite Sentiments and Inside the Lines DSP

I am pretty lucky in that I get to spend the majority of my days stamping and creating. A couple of times a week I stamp “just for fun” and like to watch Netflix for company. Right now I am watching Criminal Minds. Lets just say it is a good thing I do most of my stamping in daylight #yikes! Any good shows you recommend?

Today’s card is from one of my “Netflix and stamp” days, I made a WHOLE bunch of to send out to my team and customers. Quick, easy and super cute!

Stampin'up! Suite Sentiments stamp set, Inside the lines designer series paper, SaleABration, CAS, clean and simple, papercrafting, DIY

Details:

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock #cardbaseofthecards and measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, the panel of Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper is 5 1/4 x 3″, and the Pacific Point layer is 5 1/2 x 3 1/4″.
  • The In the Lines Designer Series Paper is a free gift during SaleABration with a minimum $50 purchase. I love it just like it is, but it is super on trend with the “coloring” theme that is so popular right now.
  • The sentiment is from the Suite Sentiment stamp set in the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. I love how this stamp set has greetings that coordinate with all the sets in the catalog. A must have tool for the studio

Happy Mail!

It is FRIDAY!!

Or as we like to call it around here, Fri-YAY!!

And it seems like the perfect time to share some Happy Mail 🙂

Stampin'Up! Thankful Thoughts stamp set, Happy Mail

from Jennifer Spiller

Stampin'Up! Acorny Thank You

from Linda Suarez

Stampin'Up! Baby Bear

from Vicky Heimbecker

Stampin'Up! Thoughtful Branches

from Corinne Blake

 

as beautiful as these cards are the real gift is that someone took time to make a card, write a note inside the card, and then mail the card. In the day of emails and FB happy birthday wishes, a card in the mail is a powerful reminder of how important it is to take the time and let someone know you appreciate them and wish them well. I know these sure made my day 🙂

Don’t forget that the September All Star Tutorial Bundle is now available ! You can read about all the different ways to get your hands on one by GOING HERE

Happy Mail!

I received 2 stunningly fabulous cards this past week and knew right away you would want to see them!

This first one is from Shannon West and is the cutest darn thing I have ever seen

Stampin'Up! Swing Card, happy mail, Lisa Pretto, inkbigacademystamps

so adorbs. right?

this second one is super duper stunning in person. It is tough to get a photo to do justice to how sparkly the Copper Embossing Powder and foil paper are in real life.

Wowza, right?!

So here is my bad: the card came with a little loose note inside and I didn’t keep them together so I don’t remember who this card is from, yikes! If it is you, shoot me an email so I can give you proper credit for this masterpiece!

I hope these 2 cards encourage you to try something fun and new, I know I felt inspired as soon as I opened them!

Happy Mail!

seriously, one of the best parts of being a Stampin’Up! is going to the mailbox. Getting what I like to call “Happy Mail” really lifts my spirits and puts a smile on my face.

For so long I was a maker of cards but not such a good sender of cards, anyone relate?!! I am fully committed to sending out a lot more cards each month and it would be awesome to have you join me in that! You never know who might be needing a little lift today, and wouldn’t it be awesome to be the person giving it!

I thought it might be fun to show you a couple that I received in the past week
