Soft Sayings Card Kit

I usually share cards that I have created from scratch, but there are times I need a card quickly and no time to work thru a design, choose my colors and embellishments – so that is where an all inclusive card kit comes in so very handy.

The Soft Sayings Kit contains the supplies for 20 cards ~ 2 each of 10 designs, an exclusive stamp set, clear block for those stamps and an ink spot for stamping your cards.  I have made one of each size to share with you but will leave making up the others until I need them and choose the greeting to meet the need at the time.

This kit would also make a great gift for a friend or family member who would like some handmade cards to send but may not have the room to be able to create from scratch, and the kit come ready gift packaged in its own decorated box!

I shared a card using the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set last week – he is such a cute little guy – I could not resist using this set again ~ this time as a valentine card, since we are just a few weeks shy of February 14th, come to think of it ~ this may just be perfect for an anniversary, engagement or even a wedding card!

Embossing Lovely as A Tree ~ Video Tutorial

I am not really sure what to call this technique and I have seen it used in various places, but is produces such a pretty effect and is really quite easy to do, as I show in the video.

I chose to use the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set along with the Woodland Embossing folder.  As this stamp set does not have any greetings I used one from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set and created a thank you card, but it would work as a really great card for the fellas in our lives or maybe a Christmas card simply by changing the greeting.

Heat Embossed Lovely Lattice – Sale-a-bration Goodies

This stamp set is true to its word – it is LOVELY ~ so serene and peaceful.  I chose to use heat-embossing to really highlight the delicate details.

What excites me though is that I got both of these stamp sets for FREE as part of Stampin’ UP!’s annual promotion where by spending $50 on you get to choose from 11 different items for FREE. Read on for more information…………….
