Thank A Mail Carrier Day!

Today where you live it may be snowy, icy, cold and blowy but I’m pretty sure you can count on your mail carrier to deliver your mail. It really is pretty amazing that mail is delivered under just about all conditions.

When I saw that it was National Thank a Mail Carrier Day I thought how often are mail carriers told thank you?  Have I actual told my gal thank you?  So when I put out my mail today I made sure there was a thank you card just for her.  One with my message of thanks on a post it note so she could use the card to say thank you to someone else in her life.  I hope it brings a smile to her face.

I used the Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set to stamp this beautiful tree.  It is one of three stamps in this set that makes for easy card making.  And I love that!  It looks like you have to work hard to get the silhouette effect but all you really need to do is ink the stamp in your favorite color and stamp it!  Easy peasy!

And the Amazing Thanks Dies in this set are fun because they mimic the silhouette look.  They are script word dies with mats.  I love that they’re rather large and a wonderful way to say “thanks” or “you are amazing”!  You can purchase the dies and stamp set separately but the bundle is always the best deal at 10% off!

Rhinestone Basic Jewels are a staple in my studio. I love how I can color them to coordinate with our Blends. Here I used Misty Moonlight to add a little blue bling!

Simple Saturday with Wishing You Well

Today I’m featuring the retiring ‘Wishing You Well’ stamp set.  It’s a set I use time and time again.  Change up the color and the sentiment and you can make cards galore!

DistINKtive Stamps – that’s what makes these images so gorgeous.  The images are photo-realistic, crisp, and clear.  They have dimension that is like no other stamps.  Just gorgeous!  Wait…I think I said that already.

I'm so sad to see the Wishing You Well stamp set on the Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 retiring list. I use this set for quick cards all the time! It's gorgeous and so easy to use in the see through photopolymer. Make sure you grab up yours set before it's gone - June 3, 2019

If you are new to stamping try using this set with Stampin’ Up!’s Note Cards & Envelopes in either whisper white or very vanilla.  They are a bit smaller but cut and scored to make things ready and easy.  The middle card in this image was stamped on a note card.  I love to add the bow to the back of the envelope flap.  I’m sure it brings a smile to both the recipient and the postal workers.

I love using the Stamparatus with this set.  What’s that you say?  Sounds like the name of a dinosaur but it’s really Stampin’ Up!’s awesome stamp positioner.  It makes stamping easier for the beginner and it allows me to make lots of cards in a very short amount of time.  I would love to answer any questions you may have about this tool and happy to help you learn to use it.

Wishing you well is a stamp set that gives you photo realistic images. It's Stampin' Up!'s patented Dis

Besides the spray of greenery there is a wreath included in this set.
