Make A Card To Send Your Thoughts

Stampin-up-thinking-of-you-card-very-versailleIt's always the right time to send a card to let someone know they are in your thoughts, right? 

We don't need a special reason to send a note of kindness.  I sent cards just like this one to both of my daughters this week.  Who can you send a card one day soon?

This card idea was made with a beautiful stamp set from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. It's the  Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set [149275].

Just look at the beautiful images in this set!

And, this beautiful Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper [149500] is a must-have! It is amazing!

When I first started cardmaking, most of my cards were of this particular style and it's still one of my favorites.  Here's a quick video of the process.  

 

Here are the supplies used to make this card.  Just click on the links below to go to my online store! I appreciate your support and choosing to order from me!

Make An Easy Candy Pocket

Make-an-easy-candy-pocketToday's fun 3D project is this easy candy pocket featuring the Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set [149331] from Stampin' Up!  

This stamp set is not one that I would normally be drawn toward but after seeing so many projects with it on the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to Greece, I just couldn't resist it!  You can see some more projects from my recent Sunday Crafternoon Facebook Live HERE.

This one is super simple and if you cannot find the candy at Dollar Tree or Dollar General, be sure to check Amazon.  You'll need a package of these sweets to make some cute projects like this one.

Here's the how-to video tutorial so you can make "loads" of these!
