Healing Hugs (CT#154)
One of my team members, Patti, celebrated her Stampin' Up! anniversary last month and I know she loves the color purple. I wanted a beautiful card to let her know how blessed I am to have her on my Joyful Butterflies team and to wish her a Happy Anniversary.
The Healing Hugs stamp set is one of the DistINKtive stamps in the annual catalog. What's unique about the DistINKtive stamps is they are totally flat. You get this beautiful detail from them, just stamping the way you do with all of our other stamps. The above picture shows the detail of the stamp. I wish the picture would show how beautiful it looks in person. I know you would love it even more if you saw it in person.
The CASEing Tuesday card this week was a perfect layout for this card. Here is our inspiration card:
On the base of the card, Highland Heather cardstock, I used an image from the Touches of Texture stamp set and stamped it with the Gorgeous Grape ink. For the border on the left hand side of the Whisper White paper I punched out a strip of the Gorgeous Grape paper with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. I then used the Tufted Embossing Folder on the Whisper White paper and added a thin strip of Gorgeous Grape cardstock.
I stamped the flower with the Highland Heather ink and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink. I added Wink of Stella to the flower and 3 large Rhinestones to give the card a little bit of bling. Patty loves bling, so I wanted to make sure I got it on the card somewhere.
To make this card you will need the following products:
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 1" x 5"
- cut at 1/2" x 3"
- cut at 3" x 5" for front of card
- cut at 2 1/2 x 6" for the flower and leaves
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card
On the inside of the card and on the envelope I stamped a flower. Remember, never send out a naked card. LOL
Over the weekend I didn't get a chance to post the pictures of Countdown Minnie, so here are the ones we have as of yesterday. Time is going so fast and I have so much to get down before we leave. Why is it, you work twice as hard before you leave for vacation and twice as hard when you get back?
The kids are having so much fun coming in each day to see where Minnie is and what her note says to them. Emily has been such a blessing in all of this, as she has been doing all of the work, I am just taking the pictures.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a terrific week!
