Wild About Stampin’ Up!

Before I get to the card today for the Global Design Project challenge I wanted to mention a spectacular promotion going on with Stampin’ Up! right now. For every $50 of product you order from July 7-31 (so right now!) you will receive a $5 Bonus Days coupon to use during the redemption period which is August 2-31. That equates to earning 10% back on your purchases! This is just one of the many reasons I am Wild About Stampin’ Up! They must have known it was my birthday month… happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear Julie (and everyone else who makes a purchase), happy birthday to me! If you feel the sudden urge to shop then just click on the “SHOP NOW” button on my sidebar.

Now onto the card I made this week for GDP #043 which is a theme challenge. I took the easy road on this one and made another birthday card, mainly because my sister’s birthday was on Tuesday and I needed a card to send off to her!

I have been eyeing the stamp set Wild About Flowers for a while now but have never hit the buy button. Imagine my delight when my friend (and downline) told me she got it with her latest purchase! So when we met up to stamp this week that is the set I focused on. I paired the pretty flowers in this set with sentiments from Rose Wonder on two of the cards, which fit perfectly in the spot I kept open on the bottom left of the main panel. On this card I added the butterfly from the Grateful Bunch set, cut out with my Paper Snips.

I like sets where you stamp the stems and flowers separately like this one. It makes adding color quick and easy with the 2-step stamping process. Another favorite that uses this technique is the Number of Years set – love!

Here are the other two I made from the same stamping session. This one will go to a friend who I ran into at the grocery store and found out she definitely needs a card with a little message of hope.

And finally a thank you card for a customer who had a bunch of fun shopping at her daughter’s party last month! I have not been very good about sending cards to my customers and am hoping to do better with that small but important gesture. Here I added the butterfly from the Butterfly Basics set and fussy cut each one – easy with the Paper Snips!
