Here I used it to make two similar thank you cards.  I also used my Aqua Painter for the very first time. I loved it!  So easy-Much easier than coloring with Copics!

Spring Notecards

Just a quick share today to show a set of blank note cards that I made last night. I rarely make cards without sentiments, but they are a great for keeping in touch with friends or stamping a quick sentiment inside without having to re-think your card design. Sadly, this pretty little doily stamp is soon to be retired as part of the Petal Potpourri stamp set.  You can still get yours through May 31 (or while supplies last) by visiting my Stampin' Up online store at 

Don't you just LOVE that butterfly stamp?  It is from Nature's Perfection, one of the exclusive Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that was available only as a reward during the 2015 SAB promotion. Even though this is not available for purchase, it is available for you to use if you attend my monthly ShareCrops!  These are open crop times, where you are free to create any project using my stamps, inks, punches, and dies.  My next ShareCrop is scheduled for Sunday, May 31 from 1:00-3:00. The fee for ShareCrops is $10, and includes a $10 credit to be used that day. That's also the last day to order all of your favorite retiring supplies!


All supplies from Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Flowerpot (RETIRING)
Ink: Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Lost Lagoon, Night of Navy
