Quick and Easy Customer Thank You cards with Petal Promenade

Hi there,

Just thought I'd nip in here quickly today to show you the thank you cards I sent to my customers this month. It's always such a joy to make these cards and send them out - I am really grateful for each and every order I receive and appreciative that my customers choose me to order through.

As you can see I used the lovely Petal Promenade papers which will be retiring at the beginning of June. Sometimes when I buy patterned papers it sits on my paper rack and doesn't get used. But not this pack - I have used nearly the whole pack. It is such pretty paper!

These little panels which are on two of the sheets make it so, so easy to make lovely quick and easy cards. I just mounted them onto Melon Mambo card blanks, added the greeting from Butterfly Gala in black Memento ink and finished off with a couple of  Frosted Flower embellishments.  So simple!

This is the inside of the card - I made a Whisper White panel, using the Detailed Trio punch to decorate the corners. When I send the cards out, I hand write a message on a Post It note so that if they want to, my customers can re-use the card. 

Would you like to receive one of my thank you cards? Just place an order and I'll pop one in the post to you!

Large Letter Throwback Projects

Hi everyone,

As I'm sure you are all aware, the current Stampin' Up catalogue retires on June 3rd and with it, loads of products will be disappearing forever. So many lovely products which have worked themselves onto my "Top Twenty Favourites" list. And very near the top of that list are the Large Letter dies.

I have used these dies in so many projects - they will definitely be staying in my stash. I thought I'd just do a quick review of some of my favourites makes using them.

New Home card with Hometown Greetings Edgelits dies


Hi everyone,

I've recently been trying to build up my stash of cards for all occasions and realised that I did not have any "New Home" cards. So today's cards were made to rectify that situation. 

Hometown Greetings edgelits dies Stampin Up

After looking through my stamp sets, I also realised that there were no "New Home" sentiments in there. So I printed the message on my computer - using the Copperplate Gothic Light font in size 18 (and 12 for "on your"). The advantage of doing that is that you can personalise your message if you want to, as I did on the Merry Merlot one.


The dies I have used are the Hometown Greetings Edgelits dies - they are in the "Christmas" section of the catalogue but I think my card shows that they are more versatile than that. They will be retiring on June 3rd so if you would like to buy them you don't have long! 


If you'd like to see how I made my card you can watch my video by CLICKING HERE or on the image below. 


And here are the measurements needed for the cards;

METRIC
Card blank - 21cm x 15cm (half an A4 sheet), score at 10.5 cm
Whisper White panel - 10cm x 14.5 cm
Inside panel - 9.5 cm x 14 cm

IMPERIAL
Card blank - 8 1/4 ins x 6 ins, score at 4 1/8 ins
Whisper White panel - 5 3/4 ins x 3 7/8 ins
Inside panel - 5 1/2 ins x 3 5/8 ins
