Harvest Meadow and Color and Contour Thank You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I am doing it again ~ using my Designer Series Paper!!! This time I have pared the Color and Contour Stamp Set with Harvest Meadow DSP.

Gift Cards and Framelits Dies …~… Stampin’ Up!

We were invited to a couple of weddings over the last few months.  It is always so difficult to choose a gift – even with a registry list it can be tough – sometimes the happy couple can be left with the high value gifts on their list, so we decided to give gift cards – these can be added together with others and put toward those high ticket items.

In-color Ink and Card Share ~ Thank you

Saying thank you…………….

When the new 2015 – 2016 Annual Catalog was released in June we had a new batch of ‘in-colors’  ~ Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe – all gorgeous colors that work well with the other colors in the Stampin’ Up! family.

Sometimes it can be a little costly to make the investment at one time so hosting a ‘share’ allows my wonderful customers to build up their collection without breaking the bank!
