Tropical Escape Thank You Card

Today’s card is one that I created at my Team Retreat last weekend – I loved the colors in the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper as soon as I saw them. Fantastic greens that were bright and cheerful – so I teamed it up with our NEW Thank You Thinlits Die and created some thank you cards for my Catalog Kick Off participants. Check it out.

What do you think? This card was easy to make because I used our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets for the die and I chose the Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon because it has a great texture to it and ties like a dream.

Want to make some yourself? I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial for you.

I love our NEW selection of greens and they are right on trend – did you see Queen Elizabeth this morning on the news? I’m thinking that looks suspiciously like Granny Apple Green.  LOL!

I’ll be sharing some more of the items I created over the weekend during the Team Retreat over the next few posts – so stop back by and see what I’ve been up to. I’ve got more tutorials coming your way.

Dazzling Flower Shop

Today’s card uses the Flower Shop stamp set (item 130939/130942) and it may just dazzle you – lol. One of the great things about the Flower Shop stamp set is that it comes with a coordinating punch, the NEW Pansy Punch (item 130698). And I don’t know about you, but I looove punches! (Shhh..don’t tell my husband, but punches are one of my secret obsessions.) And better yet these two coordinating products make up another of our great bundles that save you 15%– The Flower Shop Bundle (item 132727/132726).

Flower Shop

When creating this card I used our yummy Strawberry Slush pattern from the 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (item 130136) as the layer on the bottom. Polka Dots are so much fun aren’t they? So I was very happy to see them in the Paper Stack again.

Next I used one of my favorite ribbons, the 5/8″ Whisper White Organza Ribbon. I bet you’re asking why it is one of my favorites right. Well it’s because it ties beautifully when making bows and is just a really great basic to have in your card supplies.  You just can’t go wrong with a Whisper White ribbon.

Finally I used my Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to add the Dazzling Diamonds to the flower to make it sparkle!

This greeting is from the NEW Hostess only stamp set Express Yourself (130336/130339). Isn’t the font lovely? Would you like one of the exclusive Hostess items for yourself?
