I have a card to share with you today, on World Cardmaking Day, but first I wanted to reach out to one of my customers. I received a No Contact order yesterday. When this option is chosen you’d prefer that I not reach out to you.  I completely respect this decision but on numerous occasions when this has happened, the person ordering didn’t realize they had chosen this option.  If you placed an order yesterday morning and didn’t mean to choose No Contact (and haven’t received a thank you from me yet), please contact me. Simply click the Email Me button on the right.



Gather Together


I don’t normally post on Saturday but how could I pass up sharing a card on World Cardmaking Day? People all over the world are making cards to celebrate!  Will you be creating a card to send to someone? It’s amazing how you can brighten someone’s day just by sending a card and letting them know you are thinking of them! 

Today’s card was made using Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper which is one of the papers on sale this month! I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock and then added another layer of Crumb Cake that I embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. The banner was created using the Triple Banner punch and Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. The sentiment was stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set, Gather Together and was cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.


Gathered Leaves Dies


The Bumblebee & Blackberry Bliss leaves were cut out using the Gathered Leaves Dies. Don’t you love the embossing on the leaves? This isn’t an extra step! When you run the leaves through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, the leaves will also be embossed!  Gotta love that (and I do!).  You can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.
