Art Gallery Thank You Card

Thank you for visiting today as I join other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world in playing along with our friend Kylie’s International Blog Highlights to share cards that show appreciation.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card or project.

For this card I used the Art Gallery stamp set and stamped onto the Natural Touch Specialty DSP and added the finishing touch with butterflies die cut using the Brilliant Wings dies

Below is a video which will show you how to make this card

Easter Egg Basket with Sand & Sea DSP

Welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends Blog Hop. Our theme for this month is “Hippity, Hoppity – Easter’s on its way!”

What is the fist thing that you think about when someone mentions Easter? It has to be chocolate Easter Eggs! If you are playing the Easter Bunny, then you have to have something to put said eggs into – or better yet, dish them out in beautiful baskets that the recipient can admire once the eggs have all disappeared!

For these baskets, I used Sand & Sea DSP and Parcels and Petals stamp set for the sentiment.
The basket is really easy to make and full instructions are in my video below.

Thanks for hopping by today. Hope everyone has a happy Easter and gets lots of eggs (in baskets) from the Easter Bunny! Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

Mini Ferrero Rocher Bag using Flower & Field DSP

Did you manage to watch my Facebook live earlier today?
If you didn’t, you missed out on this super cute little bag that will hold a Ferrero Rocher. It is quite deep, so it could hold any small item that you are giving for a gift.

I used Flower and Field DSP which is one of the Sale-A-Bration items for this year. The other products that you need to make this is the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Layering Circles dies. If you order these 2 products, you will be able to choose the DSP as your Sale-A-Bration item. Each bag uses a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP, so you can get 48 bags out of 1 pack of DSP!!

You can see how to make the bags in the video below

True Love DSP thank you card

Thank you for visiting today as I join other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world in playing along with our friend Kylie’s International Blog Highlights to share cards that show appreciation.
The theme for this hop is “Thank you”. Many people forget those simple words. I have seen people’s days brightened because someone said a simple thank you to them.
Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you or supported you by sending them a thank you card or project.

I constantly marvel at the peculiarities of human nature. When we have coloured DSP, we complain about the colour combination or would like it a bit more monochrome. Along comes black and white images, and we immediately need to add colour! Here I added spots of colour using Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I haven’t mastered the art of beautiful, complex colouring, so I go for quick and easy!
