Stampin’ Up Gingham Garden thank yous …

Do you buy designer series paper, only to sit looking at it, perhaps stroking it a bit, but never cutting into it? 

I too have been guilty of doing just that in the past.  But these days, I make a real effort to actually use my papers, to cut into them, and to make them into cards and gifts to give to my friends and family. 

Designer series paper from Stampin’ Up, gives that added touch of luxury to any card or project you make, with their gorgeous designs, and top quality, you are bound to be pleased with the results. 

What I don’t like to do is waste any of it – after all, it is precious and much loved, so I can’t bear to throw any of it away. 

When I’d finished making and creating my Gingham Garden mini album, I did have a few scraps of the paper left over… far too nice to waste – they needed to be used. 

So, with a little stamping here, a little punching there, before long I had some pretty little thank you cards, and no wasting of my much loved designer series paper!

Of course, the punches from Stampin’ Up made the cards so easy and quick to do – I couldn’t be without them – they have revolutionised my crafting and card making…

More watercolour backgrounds …

I’ve been having a lot of fun creating watercolour backgrounds for my cards, using the new in-colours from Stampin’ Up!  After making my last card, I used the same technique to make some more …

I love how this one turned out …

The stamped medallion from the happy day stamp was easy to cut out using my paper snips (I love my paper snips – best money I ever spent!)

But I think this card is my favourite …
