Feel Better with Petite Petals

petite petals bundle

I'm really trying to "Think Spring" today, but it's a bit difficult when it's STILL in the 20's and it's snowing this morning!  But I have a springy get well card for you that's sure to put a smile on the person receiving it!

  • Haven't had a chance to purchase the new Hardwood background stamp from the Occasions Catalog.  It's actually on its way, but for now I'll use my older Woodgrain background stamp to stamp the Baked Brown Sugar square cardstock for the background.
  • Punches and Big Shot dies take center stage on this quick and easy card.  I've used the Petite Petals stamp and coordinating Petite Petals Punch to create the Strawberry Slush flowers.  Buy these two new products in a bundle and save 15%!
  • I used Old Olive cardstock and the Bird Punch to create the branch, and Beautiful Wings Embosslit to make the butterfly.
  • Pearls are the only accent to keep this card nice and simple.
  • "Feel Better Soon" is one of the beautiful stamps contained in the hostess-exclusive stamp set called Express Yourself.  It's yours free (plus more!) when your workshop totals at least $150 or if you place your own order for that amount.

Congratulations to my Team Members – December

A sincere "From the Heart Stampers" congratulations goes out the top three sales people on my team for the month of December!  They are:

Brenda Rivera
Sheila Edwards
Debbie Sowards

Great job, ladies!

And here's the special card I made them:


I made two versions of this card simply by changing the sentiment.  It looks so different!  The first uses Curly Cute stamp set for the sentiment; the second uses the Level 1 hostess stamp set Afterthoughts.  And look!  Did you notice a brand new stamp set for the images?!  It's a stamp set called Bliss, and you'll have an opportunity to earn it free after January 24th!  Yes, it's that time of year again – Sale-A-Bration is just around the corner, and with every $50 you spend, you'll receive your choice of a free stamp set or accessory from a special Sale-A-Bration Catalog!  This perky color scheme is Pear Pizzazz, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso and Whisper White.  Did you know that your eye catches the color yellow first out of all of the colors in the spectrum?  So remember in your design work that a little yellow goes a long way!  And did you notice my ribbon trick?  Instead of wrapping a large piece of ribbon around the entire card, I cut a small 1/4" piece of Early Espresso card stock, then tied a piece of 1/4" Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon around it.

One of my team members has been having loads of health concerns, and I made an extra copy of this card with a "thinking of you" sentiment to send to her.  Hope you're feeling better soon, Lena!

Get Well Tea Pouch

This was an item that people were making a few years back, but I decided to make it again.  I guess I've had a lot of get well items on my mind lately — it seems like everyone has a nasty cold and sinus junk going on!  Instead of sending just a get well card, why not turn your card into a tea holder to make someone feel just a little bit better!  I started with this cute image from Wellness Wishes stamped on Whisper White card stock and colored with an Aqua Painter and Classic Stampin' Pads.  I used some designer paper from Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper Pack for both the outside and inside of the tea holder. The Curly Label Punch and Real Red card stock give a cute little accent to the bottom of the image.  Early Espresso 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon ties the pouch closed.

And here's the pouch opened.  The 1-1/4" Circle Punch makes it easier to slide the tea in and out of the pouch.  You could also insert a white piece of paper on top of the designer paper for a place to write a message, or flip the pouch closed and write on the inside of the So Saffron card stock cover.

Item No. 117396 Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper $9.95
Item No. 119955 Early Espresso 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon $6.95

Get Well Wishes for Sumana

A brave little girl is having surgery today.  I made this card for Sumana Holman, daughter of a friend and team member Cheryl Holman, to let her know I'm thinking of her. 

This card is the first I've made that is a larger greeting card size.  I folded a piece of 8-1/2"x11" Pink Passion card stock in half to create a card that measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2".  I wanted my color scheme to be bright, fun and little girl-friendly, so my palette also included Green Galore, Lovely Lilac, Pumpkin Pie and a piece of designer paper (Chocolate Chip and white polka dot) from the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack.  I used the embosslits called Cherry Blossom to die cut the flowers using my Big Shot, and the centers of the flowers contain Green Bead Duo beads held in place with Crystal Effects.  The sentiment is from Wellness Wishes stamp set, which you can earn for free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase.  Click HERE for more details on that promotion.  I used the Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch from the new Occasions Mini Catalog to make the leaves.  What, you say?  There are no leaves that look like that on the punch?  I just used the bird's wing to make my leaves! 

Here's a close-up:
