Here is a super sweet card for your Hump Day! Let’s face it… there are times that we need a “Pick Me Up Card” and WOW – this stamp set will sure bring a smile to anyones day!
Here you go….confessions of an honest Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator….I have totally overlooked this stamp set and framelits….until the new catalog came out.
It is from the Weather Together Stamp Set. The tipping point to change my thought process on this goodie was the amazing sample that is in the catalog…flip to page 93!
One my “eye was caught” I took a harder look at this set to see if I thought that it needed to come to Randall Lane. Naturally you can see that it did….but here were my selling points. (I totally think that you should take a good look at the products you purchase and figure out how many times/occasions that you could use it)
- It is a Photoploymer Stamp
- It has matching Framelits
- The font is FUN and the sentiments are UNIQUE
- There are lots of practical little images that would be great “fillers” for other cards
- Perfect for a pick me up card…a baby/bridal shower….a simple just because!
These are things that I do ask myself before I hit that button. Even though I am a Demonstrator…and I do get this at an instant 25% off….I still weigh the options before I buy!
Enjoy the pictures!!!
Did you notice in the catalog that the Washi Tape offerings are all on 1 page – GREAT IDEA….that page # is 195 and I thought that it was brilliant that they are grouped together in “Basic Color Families” I think this makes so much sense and the patterns are just adorable!
Washi Tape is a product that I truly never thought that it would last…but it is a product that we all seem to say – “I am NOT going to buy one more roll of Washi Tape” and then it happens….you say – what is one more roll. I will say that even though I do not use Washi a bunch…when I do, I love it and it is also a great product to jazz up an envelope or great to do project with kids!
After I cut the sweet raindrops out….I simply took the aqua painter and washed over the area with some soft sky ink to give a bit color and depth. This is sooooo easy to do – JUST GO FOR IT! (trust me, I have no clue what I am doing….I jut tried)
I know that you all like Tips & Tricks….in the below picture you will see how I like to store my current Washi Tape…a simple book ring!
This works great for me and then when a Washi is discontinued….they go into a big basket that is a wire mesh so I can easily spot a color that I am looking for!
There you go….a fun card that would make someone really…REALLY happy to receive! This is a great one to use up DSP…use up Washi Tape…. and one that would be great to make up in the masses….face it, when we need a pick me up card…we need it NOW…..so making several up at a time would be the super smart thing to do!
Critter Update!…..Over the weekend I shared that Oscar was “under the weather” with a belly ache…well I admit, I was worried. Seriously, when a horse has a tummy ache it can be very serious if you do not watch and stay on top of….my alarm clock was going off for 3 days just going down to make sure that he was ok – (actually…wonderful John took some of the watches) and I am blessed to have a wonderful Vet and Tom (Hannah’s trainer) that I can text at anytime and they will respond….
Here is a funny….it was super late and I needed to give him some Mineral Oil to help ease his tummy….well let me tell you – for a horse – you need a bunch of Mineral Oil….OFF TO WALMART I go (boy, I really dislike Walmart) but I admit…I was scared and thought that I would kick myself if I did not go etc….well I went and bought a bunch…the check out lady looked at me and said – WOW….someone must be really backed up…
I rest my case….this is why Walmart and I have issues. The moral of the story is….after lots of walking and more walking…. good doses of Mineral Oil and love from us….Oscar is great!
