Technique Tuesday Happy Thanksgiving

I love this week’s cue card. I’m thankful for so much. The ability to take another breath is big for me. What are you grateful for?

I created a clean and simple card using Technique Tuesday Happy Thanksgiving stamp set.

To add some subtle texture to the care, I added some score lines down the sides, top and bottom of the card.

Super fun!

Taylor Expressions 10th Birthday Celebration

Yayyyy! I’m so excited to celebrate with Taylored Expression on their 10th Anniversary! They’re having a HUGE party. Almost 40 designers are involved in this celebration!! All of the links to this hop is listed on Taylored Expressions Blog. Follow along as to not miss any of the designers amazing work.

Taylored Expressions new released went live last night and is available now!! Check it out here.

I designed for Taylored Expression from July 2016 to August 2017. I was apart of the Clearly Planned design team. It was amazing to be apart of a brand new team working with brand new stamps and dies. I fell in love with my planner because of this team. I am grateful to Taylor for believing in me.

This planner spread is one of my favorites. It’s from February 2017. I used Clearly Planned Love Struck  stamp set.

What better way to show my love for Taylored Expressions then to make a card!!!

Let’s take a look:

Bloomin birthday

Clean and simple is my style and this stamp set made it easy to accomplish that! This stamp set is called Bloomin Birthday. The simplicity of the flowers is fun.

Take a look inside:

Bloomin Birthday

What’s a greeting card without the sentiment inside. That’s why I added one. It completes the card.

What do you think? I would love to hear in the comment section below.

Share Joy Campaign

At the heart of Taylored Expressions is a mission to share joy through the gift of handmade cards. As part of their 10th birthday TE is continuing that mission with the launch of a special Share Joy campaign focused on providing birthday cards to those in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities across the U.S. To make as deep an impact as possible TE is inviting card makers everywhere to join the campaign.

For this notebook, I used the Travel Buddy Stamp Set to and stamped straight down the side of the notebook. I kept it simple since I do not know what colors my photos will have. Better to keep it neutral then add color after.

Hello Friend

I decided to create a card that says hello to all of my So Suzy Stamps friends. It’s been a while since we all worked together!

Here’s how I create this card:

  1. Cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.
  2. Create score lines at the bottom (4) and the top (4) of the card front.
  3. Create one score line on the left and right side of the card.
  4. Using the MISTI, stamp the image and the sentiment.
  5. Add Wink of Stella to the image and the sentiment.
  6. Round the corners of the card using We R Memory Keepers 3 Way Corner Punch.

Nice and easy.
