I'm NOT Senile!

I was supposed to post this on Monday, but I completely forgot!  I can't believe I did that!  I am getting so absent-minded!  (Not senile, you understand!!!)  There is just SO much accumulated information up there, that occasionally there are traffic jams in my neural pathways!  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I have a special offer for my new customers, who are just getting started in their stamping hobby.   These offers give you all the basics so you can begin stamping right away at 10% off.  Each offer includes your choice of cardstock, ink and ribbon, some adhesive and a choice between 2 stamp sets.  Here is the flyer.


Package Two of the offer contains a choice between two stamp sets, Kindness Matters, and Pretty Postage.  They are not expensive sets, and they both contain images and sentiments, which make them very versatile.  I wanted to display their talents with two quick cards I completed on the weekend. 

Here is the one I created using Kindness Matters:


It has an almost masculine simplicity to it, so I added some bling, and of course, the butterflies definitely feminize it, but the Bravo Burgundy and the grey DSP from the Twitterpated collection from the Occasions Mini Catalogue, are really a masculine combination.  I'll remember that for the next time I want a "man-card"!  By the way, the Twitterpated Design Series Paper is on the carry-over list, meaning we can still order it even though the Occasions Mini was over on May 1.

The next card I made used the Pretty Postage set:




The colours featured in this card are Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke and some DSP from the old Botannical Gazetter collection (I think), which is now discontinued.  I ran the Always Artichoke panel through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and used the Postage Stamp punch to punch out the little 1" x 1" squares on the front.  They were stamped using Rich Razzleberry ink, and then a So Saffron ribbon was added.  All the 1/4" grosgrain ribbon is being discontinued next year and is available now while supplies last only, so don't be disappointed.
