Special reason (retiring) thank you card

I am on a Blushing bride and Smokey slate roll, so here’s another one!
This time I added a bit of glimmer paper too. Blushing bride glimmer paper and special reason bundle are both retiring the 31st May 2017 or until stock lasts. Special reason bundle is one of my favourite retiring items and I will be using it in the future as well!

I have sent this card to my Aunt in Alaska who I visited on holiday in the States in February/March.

For this card I used following Stampin’ Up! products:

This card is not the easiest card to assemble because you want the three squares lined up perfectly beneath each other. What I did was laying them out first as where I wanted them to be. I then glue top and bottom square and align them so the border to the two card edges are lined up with same distance. I then glue the middle piece and make sure it has same distance to the top and bottom squares and is lining up with the edge of the card as well. It is a bit fiddly.
Putting the sentiment on with dimensional stickers is easy. The flower I just glued on, and I used tombow glue, to glue the outline of flower to glimmer paper. Just saying because some has experienced issues sticking stuff to glimmer paper.

SAB thank you card

Only 3 days left of Stamping’ Up!’s Sale a bration period so I thought I would show a card I made by using one of the items from the SAB catalogue.

I love the big thank you stamp. It is very elegant and very versatile. I love the colour combination, makes me think of spring. I was inspired by this card by Bonnie I found on Pinterest.

This is what Stamping’ Up! products I used to make this card:

I used the dimensionals to pop up the smoky slate from the base and making sure I didn’t get any lumps on the front from the twine as it is a bit bulky. I also used dimensionals for the flower on the front.
I wish I had adjusted the twine a bit before taking the photo!
Oh well, we learn as we go. 🙂
Card is from the 27th March 2017.

Special reason card

I love the Special reason bundle. It’s very versatile. Leaves can be used for all seasons, not just spring. I would combine the bundle with other sentiments though.

Cardstock I used:

I also used:
The magnetic platform is not essential for the dies in the Special reason bundle but it is very handy. You can use tape too to hold the die in place in the big shot. Die just need to be secured somehow so it doesn’t move.
It’s a very simple card but also very lovely. I like it’s crisp and clean.
