Letterpress Winter Thank You Card with How To Video and More Pics from Founder's Circle


Hi Everyone! I LOVE the Kraft paper that Stampin' Up! is now carrying and it looks awesome with our Whisper White Craft Ink as you can see in the photo above. Today I made a card with the Letterpress Winter Photopolymer Stamp Set. In the card above, I actually heat embossed the snowflake with White Embossing Powder for a little more pop. In today's video, however, I skipped that step to create a card that's a bit softer looking.


Here are the cards side by side. The heat embossed card on the left and the stamped image with out heat embossing on the right. I like both looks. Do you have a preference? I added the information in my ingredients pictures in case you wanted to create the card with the heat embossing, too. Here is today's video. Enjoy!!

Here's another of my favorites from Founder's Circle! This card was created by Barb Mullikin and it also uses the Letterpress Winter stamp set. Barb stamped the images in Lost Lagoon and Soft Sky and used matching paper with Whisper White. The sequin accents are from the Holiday 2014 Mini Catalog #135835. 

Here are a few more pictures from Founder's Circle 2014:


Our first full day was a nice relaxing one. Good for those of us that needed to finish our swaps . . . or we could work on projects that Stampin' Up! provided for us.


Here is the close up of the gorgeous ornament on the agenda board. All of the rolled up paper is from the small paper stack called Trim the Tree. You can find it on page 7 of the 2014 Holiday Mini Catalog.


As you know, Stampin' Up! is a very generous company to work for and they let out all the stops for Founder's Circle attendees. We were showered with gifts! This is one I received playing the daily trivia game. It contained All is Calm Snowflake Embellishments.


One of the things we did this day was prep some favors to give to the employees at Kanab. Lyssa Zwolanek provided a cute project and loads of candy. That's Betty Button helping her out on the right.


We made these up in record time with a good assembly line. L to R: LeeAnn Greff, Sandy Hancock and Gail Lowe. 



Here's a picture of the finished item. Isn't that sweet?


Lee Conrey also created a bunch of favors to give out in Kanab and we helped her sign the tags. Isn't it adorable? The broom is made with our Natural Filter paper pictured on page 193 of the 2014 Stampin' Up! catalog.


As always, there are plenty of treats around. Here is a picture of the candy bar. We used mugs to keep our candies handy through out the day. 


That evening we had our pajama party business share and swap. This is Sarah Wills and I. We were Rising Stars in 2009 and have been fast friends ever since. 


The swapping line. We could hardly wait to get all those awesome swaps!!


This is Barb Mullikin, who created one of my favorites from Founder's Circle! She and I and a few others hunkered down immediately after swapping and started going through our cards. We sorted them into piles and the most popular stamp sets in the swap were Festival of Trees, Wondrous Wreath and Ornamental Pine. I'll share more pictures tomorrow so stay tuned!
