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!

Today’s Daily Dose
Today’s card was featured in one of my Simply Beautiful Card classes. An easy way to make a beautiful card is to start with beautiful paper. In this case I used one of the prints from the Whimsy & Wonder 12″ x12″ Designer Series Paper. Whimsical ornaments in pinks, blues and greens with the added element of shiny foil. (So shiny it was difficult to take a photo)
Start with pretty paper and layer it with colors found in the paper. I used both the Misty Moonlight and Mint Macaron. It’s what I love the most about Stampin’ Up!’s products…the color coordination.
The sentiment was embossed with White Embossing Powder on a label from the Ornate Frames Dies. It’s a really nice set of dies if you are looking for frames and labels for your sentiments. Foil leaves were cut using the Pierced Booms Dies. This die set is my absolute favorite! It’s a stand alone die set that makes beautiful stitched flowers and leaves! The silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim was tied in a double bow to add that little bit of special!
