Vertical Greetings is a stamp set that is in the 2016 current Annual Catalog and will also be carried over in the new Annual Catalog that comes out June 1st. It is a great stamp set because all the sentiments are vertical instead of horizontal. This allows you to stamp a sentiment in a small skinny section of your card. It is extremely popular with my customers because it is so different.
I inked the flowers and pot using my Stampin’ Write Markers. They are great for coloring one stamp different colors. Al you need to do is color each section and then “huff” over the ink to moisten it. It is really easy to do and works well.
I embossed the sentiment with Versamark and then sprinkled White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on top of it. Then I heated it up with my Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder.
Emory Jade is 11 weeks old already and is growing like a weed. Here is a picture of her with her Dad at a concert. I think she likes the music!
It seems like I have posted a lot of thank you cards lately. I had to make a whole bunch of them to send to someone who needed to thank a lot of people who helped her family out. After I did that I realized that I didn’t have nay left for myself so I began a crusade to replenish them in my stash. You probably wonder what I do with all these cards I make. If you think about it, I post a minimum of five days a week, every week. That is 260 cards a year! Well, I share them. I send bunches of them to my sisters and mother to use. They love them and use them so it works out well.
I made this card using the stamp set called Vertical Greetings. I like this set because the sentiments are different (because they are vertical). The Designer Series Paper I used is called By The Shore. Both of these items are in the 2016 Annual Catalog.
Every month I give my Club Members a card challenge to make for the next meeting. Usually it is a sketch challenge but sometimes I do colors or themes. Our September meeting is tonight and is another sketch challenge. Here is the challenge:
Here is the card I made:
I used a couple of stamp sets to make this card. The bird is from the stamp set called Swirly Bird and has a set of matching set of Thinlits called Swirly Scribbles. You can save 10% by purchasing both in a Bundle. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Vertical Greetings. I love this set because of the sentiments can fit so nicely is a thinner spot because they are vertical (makes sense!). The Designer Series Paper I used is called Floral Boutique.
In the next week or so I will show you pictures of the cards my club members made with this sketch. They are an awesome set of stampers so I am sure they will be amazing.
This is the third card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting. It uses the stamp set called Vertical Greetings that is in the 2016/2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. I love this new set because the sentiments can fit easily into a smaller space.
Speaking of our stamp club, we presently have an opening. If any people who are local to me are interested in joining us and would like more information, just send me an email and I will tell you all about it. It is a fabulous group of ladies who meet once a month. We each take turns being hostess so everyone gets a chance at earning free products. It is an easy going group and we have a lot of fun each month.
Since I already made a patriotic card last week for our weekly Stamp Off Challenge, I decided not to make another one but still made a card using red, white and blue to celebrate our country’s birthday.
I used a new stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog called Vertical Greetings. Greeting that are vertical were really popular a few years ago and I always liked them so I was happy when Stampin’ Up! came out with a new set. It is a really cute set with three different topiaries and six different vertical sentiments.
Happy Birthday, America. You are still a great country!
