Stampin' Up! Jar of Love Card, Thoughtful Branches Sentiment, Susan Itell, Stampinup

It is the weekend and that means that it is time for a 2 day post that you all have seemed to love….for those of you that are NEW….welcome and let me share with you what I do on the weekends!

On Saturday, I share with you a card and I call it Simple Saturday…as you know me – Simple Susan and then tomorrow I will try to STEP up the card and we call that Step It Up Sunday! If you have not already done so, please subscribe to my blog so you do not miss a dose of fun! You can do so on the right side of my blog!

This super sweet and classic Mason Jar is from the Jar of Love Bundle! True you could purchase this set a la carte but that would be silly as purchasing it as  bundle will mean that you get an instant 10% off and we all live a deal! I invite you to LOOK at all of the amazing elements to this bundle…




I know that many of you do not have all of the colors of ink pads and that is great….you need to “build up” you inventory to see what works for you …and what does not tickle your fancy.

Today’s card, I am just using the sweet sugarplum for the color of the flowers (it looks like 2 different ink colors, right?….HOW DID I DO IT? Easy – I just stamped off the ink to get it lighter and then used the next stamp “full strength” to give the depth!

I know that many of you might be saying….why in the world did you use this new Thoughtful Branches for just the “Thank You” – I know that it seems silly but tomorrow it will make sense to you…so hang tight!

Remember that the below bundle is available for you to purchase on August 2nd – 31st (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST) and if you click here you will see another post I did earlier in the week using it! (I call this a keeper)

This is a 4 1/4″ Square Card (square cards make me 🙂 and you can see that I am keeping this super simple today. The flowers that are in this bundle are sweet and super easy to make…WHY???? They are labeled with an arrow so you know exactly how to place them (also – this is a photopolymer stamp….so even easier)

That wonderful Envelope Punch Board is the shining star in making the envelope today. I admit, when Stampin’ Up! came out with Envelope Paper I was a bit skeptical as I thought that because it was a bit thinner, it would not hold up…but I was wrong. To me, it adds a fun twist from a white envelope and the color allows you to still easily read with a black pen!

You all know that I am a firm believer in our trimmer as our trimmer allows you to cut and score BUT.…I will say that I prefer to use the Simply Scored to get a super deep scoring like I have done on this card…this is a technique that I do often but one that I never get tired of.

There are many times that I think, do you get tired of seeing the same techniques? I hope not because I hope that you can see that there are so many different cards that we make and send and if you have something that WORKS??? why not do it again and again!

I am excited to share with you tomorrow what I did….enjoy the day and please come back tomorrow as I will share with you the measurements so you can CASE away!
