For today’s card I was inspired by the sample on page 37 of the Stampin Up catalog. When I get in a rut and don’t feel like being creative, or if I have a Stampin Up stamp set, punch or some other embellishment that I want to use, I browse one of the Stampin Up catalogs (past or present) and look for inspiration. I did not have the Thanks and Hello stampset so I just used one of my own and the Stamp a ma jig #101049 to position & align the stamped image exactly where I want it. To create the sunflower, I used a scrap laying on my table and the new Pansy punch #130698, the Bird builder #117191punch for the leaf and a strip of scrap garden green cardstock. To be honest I thought this card was going to be a snap to make but since I had to align each thanks and changed color with each thanks it took a little bit of time but the end result was great.

Everything on this card is from the Stampin Up Sale- A- Bration (except the pearls). The card base is scored using the Simply Scored Diagonal plate #132203. The Diagonal plate is placed on top of the Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 to create perfectly spaced diagonals. Cammie added a pearl at the intersection of each scored line and then stamped the sentiment using the Vintage Verses #129633 and the Sycamore Street ribbon (#130812) to finish the Thank You cards.

Stampin Up introduced the Framelit dies for the Big Shot and they are so popular and make card making a breeze. For this card I stamped my image (now retired) and then used the Labels Collection Framelits #125598 in two different sizes and then layered them on top og pleated DSP that I made into a banner and then added the pleated and a punched edge to create a quick thank-you card. The card base is embossed with the elegant lines embossing folder#119277.
I love the design of this cute card that features the flirtacious fabric from the Stampin Up IBC. This card was a hit at our last card cafe and was the card I used as a thank-you for my birthday gifts. How great is that to use a card for a real purpose and prep for a workshop at the same time? The layout of this card is simpl and can be adapted to suit any of the yummy fabrics from the stampin up catalog. To cut the fabric I used the square die for the bigshot. It was fun to see the look on the card cafe attendees that you can actually cut fabric (among other mediums)with the big shot. The sentiment is now retired and was from the sale- a- bration but you could substitute any expression.
