Hello and welcome to my blog!  Today I am hopping along with other members of Bruno and Kylie Bertucci's Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program.  I have learned so much through this training group since I first became a demonstrator.  We love doing our Monthly Team Blog Hops with our general theme for all the hops being customer and team thank you cards.

Today's Project

Today's project is a thank you card that I am providing to my customers this month as a thank you for their orders.  The new September-December 2023 Mini Catalog has been sent to them and orders are coming quickly so I've been enjoying making some quick die-cut cards to share with them.  I love spoiling my customers and I hope that they enjoy my gratitude as much as I enjoy sharing new ideas and techniques with them.

Project Details

The Pansy Patch sentiments were stamped in Pebbled Path ink onto Basic White Stylish Shapes die-cuts using the largest square.  Square frames were created by die-cutting multiple dies at the same die which were kept together with washi tape so they wouldn't move.  Certain frames were used for a different layout while the smallest of the frames were perfect for creating the angles for this layout.

The Cheerful Daisies Dies were die-cut multiple times from Basic White cardstock.  The centers were colored with the bullet tip of the Dark Pebbled Path Stampin' Blends Marker.  The petals were colored with Wild Wheat ink and a Small Blending Brush to create Black-Eyed Susan daisies.  The sprigs were colored with the brush tip of the Light Pebbled Path Stampin' Blends Marker.

The background was embossed with the new Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder from the new mini catalog.  The 2023-2025 In Color Dots were the perfect finishing touch to compliment these Black-Eyed Susans!

A copy paper insert has been to the middle of the cards for a special handwritten to my customers so they can enjoy another option for the inside of their own cards just in time for the holidays.
