10/11 Stampin' Down Memory Lane


It's Sunday and I am once again, taking a walk down Memory Lane with SU. Remember the set called "Elegant Notes?" It's just perfect for making cards for music teachers. I like using this set with our SU Note Cards . . . the card is sized at 3 1/2" x 5". What a delightful Christmas card this will be. The felted paper from our Christmas Cocoa pack that you can find in our Holiday Mini Catalog is one of the more striking features of this card. The Curly Label Punch (punched twice through Whisper White paper and layered together) makes an especially elegant backdrop and frames the treble clef. I stamped the treble clef with Whisper White Craft Ink, embossed it with Whisper White embossing powder, then sponged the edges with Whisper White Craft Ink and embossed that, too. I punched it out with the Wide Oval Punch and then it is popped up on dimensionals.

Then, I decided it was time to make thank you notes. I will be giving Kasey's piano teacher a whole set of these for Christmas. I used the Night & Day Specialty Designer Series Paper featured in our Holiday Mini Catalog. I used my brayer to color it up with a coordinating color of ink . . . in this case Real Red. The cards below are done in Bashful Blue and Sage Shadow. I really love how you can change the look of the Night and Day paper by brayering over it with whatever color of ink you want. That just makes it so much more versatile to me. The sentiment is from our Teeny Tiny Wishes set stamped with Basic Black on Whisper White and then punched out with the Word Window Punch.

Lastly, I wanted to share a picture with you of all the goodies I got while I was at Founder's Circle. Stampin'Up sure knows how to treat you right!! What a joy . . . I feel so blessed to be a Stampin'Up Rising Star!! Thank you, Stampin'Up, for the goodies . . . but most of all for the memories!

You can place your SU orders with me 24/7 at my SU website! Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Stampin'Up will announce another weekly special tomorrow, so be sure to stay tuned!
