CARD: Stamps in the Mail

This is a fun little card--made for absolutely no reason at all!!  Now to figure out who to mail it to!!  Leave me a comment if you'd rather get mail than a text!


The stamp set I used is a demonstrator exclusive set called "Stamping Your Way to the Top".  There are so many perks to being a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! -- this is just a very small one!  

Here are the other supplies I used:

CARD: Itty Bitty Birthdays

Good Morning!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  

Today's card was made for the Case This Sketch Challenge.  I set out to use some of the retiring designer paper -- I have quite the stash!   This is from the Best Route pack:


Simple was the word of the day!!  Colors came from the dsp itself:  Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch and Gray Granite.  The sentiment was stamped then cut out using the Big Shot and the retiring Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I cut the banner out twice -- once in Whisper White, and then again in Gray Granite for the "outline" piece!  The ribbon is tied around the middle piece--mini glue dots were used to hold the bow in place!

Here's the sketch used:

Enjoy!!  Have a great week!
