My August Thank You Cards

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my August Thank You Cards that are going out to customers that have and will finish placing orders with me this month.  For this month's Thank Yous I have used some very pretty paper and probably a set that you never would have thought of to use as a thank you sentiment.  Here's a look at one of the cards that I created.
I used the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper for the main focus of my thank you cards this month.  I wanted to showcase this beautiful paper that's packed full of flora, vegetation, and vintage designs.  This pack of designer series paper is a Specialty paper because it's a lighter weight paper with photographic images of real pressed petals on one side and vintage designs on the other.  One of the pieces of 12 x 12 paper has distinct designs to cut out and use as card fronts.  Which was  one of those designs that I used on this particular card.  So no matter what your creative tastes you are sure to find something that you love.

For the sentiment I picked one from the Garden Goodness Stamp Set. Which has been one of my favorite sets lately to use and is so unlike my typical sets that I would purchase, but I am so glad I did and had so much fun with it.  In case you haven't seen that set here's what it looks like.

I picked the Good luck, Good Health, and Happiness Sentiment for my cards this month.  I thought it was a perfect sentiment for this month's thank yous.  But I love the veggie images in the set and the fun sentiments and the font the sentiments are done in.

Stampin' Up!'s Ride with Me Bundle

Image you're in a Hallmark movie and it's a snowy day and you are loading up the most lovely spruce that you found on the Christmas Tree Lot.  What's the one four wheeled load baring brightly colored in Christmas Red are you loading the tree up in?  If you said the farm house truck you would be correct.   How many of you have seen all the designs out there featuring the little red truck and the tree or pumpkins or well just about anything?  This image seems to be a quintessential element in any Farm house decor now a days and you can find these images everywhere.  And now you can find them on cards, home decor projects, and gift bags as well.  Today, I am going to share with you a few projects using the Ride with Me Bundle from Stampin' Up!, and no matter what color these little trucks are these are the things that I think of every time I see it.  Let's look at one of the projects from Stampin' Up! featuring this super cute bundle shall we.

Even with this little truck being a different color it still makes me think of the Red Farmhouse truck out there everywhere now.  This little treat filled truck as it transports the little Stampin' Up! treat box to destinations unknown is super cute and would be perfect for a Birthday Party favor or just to deliver to someone as a little think you.  I love that the back of the truck reads I heart stampn that's just a super cute sentiment and touch to the back of any moving vehicle. 



The Ride With Me Bundle features the Ride with Me photopolymer Stamp Set that has 19 stamps to use to create the perfect little truck that could be used for so many different uses.  When paired with the Truck Ride Dies you can turn the flat stamped images into this fun little 3D truck in record time. 

With the Dies and the stamp set you can create the perfect project for any occasion you need.  For example the image above you can see make the perfect little party favor.  What else could you use this bundle for?  I can think of a ton of ways to use it.  This bundle has been on my list to get for awhile now but everytime I put in my next order I seem to forget to do so.  So I wanted to share this with you today just in case you're like me and keep forgetting to do just that.  There's so much wonderful things in the Annual catalog and so many great things coming in the Holiday catalog that it's hard to remember what to order.

Here's a few more examples of the truck used to create some gift giving possibilities.  Notice the Little red one with the Christmas tree and the little peppermint candies tied up in it's nice little packaging.  Not to even mention the pumpkins and haystack treats in the back of the blue little truck.  I love how it was turned into a card in this image also with all the balloons blowing the the wind as it speeds down the road to that last minute celebration.  This is the perfect bundle for cards, and gifts for boys of any age.  
Thanks for dropping by today, for this quick little post about the Ride With Me Bundle.  You can pick up this cost saving bundle in my online store 24/7.  You can click on the image of the bundle and go to my online store, and add the Ride With me Bundle to your Shopping Cart today!

Praise Worthy Prose Bundle Introduction

Hello and welcome to my blog; you may be wondering where is Episode 29 of Saturday Simple Stamping?  Well, I am getting ready for Rodney's Memorial Service today and I will return next Saturday with the next Episode of Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping.  But, in the meantime I have these cute projects to share with you featuring the Praiseworthy Prose Bundle from the Annual Catalog.  Here's a look at one of the projects using it.

With the Praiseworthy Prose bundle you can do so much with it. Here for example you have a super cute birthday or a card for any celebration.  With the addition of the different colored layers and the bold black "YAY!" this card just pops.  The sentiments in the Praiseworthy Prose stamp set are nicely spaced so that they can be cut down to make these tiny little banners you see here.  As you can see with the stamp set you have some great sentiments.  As you can see the sentiments are created in a definition style.  You also have fun images that you can use in the background.

The Hand-lettered prose dies are so versatile and if placed just right they can create the perfect handwritten sentiment.  You can line them up with a piece of cardstock and then secure with washi tape before running through your die cutting machine.  There are 43 dies in the die set; which include an alphabet and other peaces that work together to create fun cards.  With the bundle and just the dies along you can create some fun projects with great techniques.  As you see below with the cards made with the Eclipse Technique.

I love how they created the watercolor wash in the background then used the letters to cut it out.  It adds a super fun look to a very clean and simple card.  And this is just the tip of the iceberg that you can do with this fun bundle.  You can also create home decor pieces as well as I will share with you in just a few minutes.  But before we do that here's a little video form Stampin' Up! talking about this fun bundle. 


Now that you have watched the video and saw a couple of the samples above and learned a little more about this bundle.  Let's look at a little home decor piece you can create with it.

I love how they used all the different colors of cardstock to die cut all the letters.  This would be a great way to use up a lot of your scrap cardstock just laying around.  Plus one of the best things is you can totally customize it for anything.  I could see this as a gift at a baby shower; or a great birthday gift.  What occasion do you think it would be a great gift for?  
I hope that you found this post helpful if you have been on the fence about the Praiseworthy Prose Bundle.  This was also one of the sets that I used this week on Rodney's Memorial Card.  You can pick this cost saving bundle up in my online store by clicking the shop button above or by clicking on the item in the shopping list below.

Harvest Hello Teacher's Gift

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super quick and easy project to give to your favorite teacher when you head back to school.  I used products from the 2019 Annual Catalog and some new products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog that will release on September 4, 2019.  I used the upcoming Harvest Hello Stamp Set and matching punch from the Holiday Catalog.  Here's a look at the project.

 Tips & Tricks: 

I used the Kraft Pillow Boxes (#147018) as the base of my gift holder.  I secured one end with Tear & Tape Adhesive (#138995) and a few Mini Glue Dots (103683) just for added security.  I then closed that end and pressed it really well with my Bone Folder (102300) both on the outside and the inside.  

I left to top of the pillow box open so I could slip the pens on the inside.  I could fit five pens comfortably in the box without any issues.  The Craft Pillow boxes are such a great buy for treats because you get ten in a pack for only $5.00 US.  You can not beat that.  I then wrapped about 15" of the 1/2" Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon (146920) around the pillow box and tied it in a bow.
I created the tag with the Tags & More Accessory Kit (149652).  And, let me just tell you that if you are looking to make a lot of tags for all occasions this is another great buy.  You get 10 tag bases (5 each of 2 designs) 10 layering tags, 3 different thick baker's twines, Copper washi tape, and 10 copper library clips to use on your projects.   So basically you are averaging about twenty-six cents a tag, not bad at all.  And that's only if you are using everything on each tag, which I did not.  When you start pricing things out you can see that the $9.00 for the kit is a super great deal.
I picked one of the Granny Apple Green tags and wrapped a little of the Copper Washi Tape around at the bottom.  I secured it on my project with a little of the Granny Apple Green and White Baker's Twine from the Kit.
I made the apple on the tag using the NEW Harvest Hellos Bundle from the Holiday Catalog which will release on September 4, 2019.  I stamped everything on scrap cardstocks in Real Red, Soft Suede, and Granny Apple Green.  I stamped everything using the Harvest Hello Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink (132708) and then punched it all out using the matching Apple Builder punch (Available September 4, 2019).  I put the apple together using mini glue dots and then used a few Stampin' Dimensionals (104430) behind to secure it in place and then popped it up on the tag.  And, that my friends is my super quick and easy project.
Happy Stampin'
