I hope you are having a wonderful day! I had a busy, tiring, lovely day yesterday! My lovely daughter, her husband and their sweet son came to visit. We had the “great grands” over for a visit and brunch so they could spend some time with Levi, my grandson. He put on quite a show with his big vocabulary for a 2 year old, he wow-ed them with his knowledge of the different colors and number order. He is just in love with trucks. We got a large toy semi-truck with spaces for smaller “matchbox” style cars for his Christmas present and this semi has lived with us since. This way he has a special toy to play with when he visits.
I had so much fun but boy was I tired out yesterday evening and I woke up during the night because my naughty back was misbehaving! All this to say I am a little behind on my card making! This afternoon I got motivated and made two very different cards. One is for my grand daughter’s 7th birthday later this month and the other is the card for today.
My color combination for this card is Poppy Parade (ink 147050/ card stock 119793), Granny Apple Green (ink 147095/ card stock 146990), Whisper White (100730), and Mango Melody (ink 147093/ card stock 146989).
I cut my Poppy Parade (119793) card base at 4 1/4″ X 11″ and scored/folded at 5 1/2″. I cut my Whisper White (100730) card stock layer 4″X 5 1/4″. I dry embossed my Whisper White (100730) layer with my trusty Big Shot (143263) and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (147906). I love this new embossing folder from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.
I die cut the Granny Apple Green (146990) fence using my trusty Big Shot (143263) and the Farmhouse Framelits Dies (147922). Yes! I got to use my new Take Your Pick Tool (144107) to poke out the sections between the fence posts. This is a great new all-in-one type tool from the Holiday catalog. See my description of this tool from yesterday’s post here.
I stamped the three leaves from the Colorful Seasons stamp set (143726) with Poppy Parade (147050), Mango Melody (147093), and Granny Apple Green (147095) inks. I cut them out with my trusty Big Shot (143263) and the coordinating die set called Seasonal Layers Thinlits (143751) .
Assembling the Card
I used Snail Adhesive (104332) generously to attach the Whisper White (100730) embossed layer to the card base. I attached the fence after carefully applying Snail Adhesive (104332) to the fence while laying it wrong side up on release paper or on a silicone craft sheet (127853).
The bottom Poppy Parade leaf is attached with Snail Adhesive (104332). The Mango Melody leaf is attached with Mini Glue Dots (103683). The Granny Apple Green leaf is attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (144108).
The white Baker’s Twine (124262) was colored using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write marker (147160) since I did not have any of that color twine. After the twine dried, I tied a bow and attached it using a mini Glue Dot (103683).
My sentiment, “Thinking of You” is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set (143726) and is stamped in Mango Melody ink (147093). I used the Pretty Label Punch (143715) to punch out the sentiment and used Poppy Parade ink (147050) to sponge (141337) the edges of the label. The label was attached using Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).
Well that took longer to describe than do! I hope you enjoyed my card for today. If you are looking for a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would be so please if you would ask me! I am available for questions about products or classes or anything stamping related!
My online shop is available 24/7 here.
Hope you have an awesome day and Happy Stampin’

Reasons to Hostess a Workshop in September
There are many benefits to host a workshop. I purchased my Stampin’ Write Markers New Color Assortment with the “50% off of one item” I received when I hosted a workshop with over $450 in sales. This is a great way to purchase a larger ticket item! Hosts receive free products too! The amount of free product earned is determined by the amount of sales from the work shop. As long as the sales are over $150, the host will receive a minimum of $15 of free product!
Workshops can be in your home, online, or catalog parties.
In addition to the regular host benefits, in the month of September, Stampin’ Up! has an additional benefit for those workshops with over $250 in sales. You can get free Christmas DSP Called Dashing Along. I have the details listed below.
