Swirly Wink of Thanks

I decided to make my club order thank you cards with the Swirly Bird bundle. It’s my first time of using the stamp set and matching dies. O-M-Goodness! Such an adorable set!  I’ve been making so many Thanksgiving and Christmas cards lately, I wanted something flowery, with spring-y colors. The color combo I went with is perfect and the Wink of Stella on the flowers and leaves give them a lovely, subtle glimmer, too. I think my favorite stamp in the set is that uber cute little Daffodil swirl that I put on the cards and the matching envelopes!

Banner Blessings Sticky Note Calendars

Every time my stamping club, The emBOSSing Queens, meet, I like to give them a thank you gift. Each November, it inevitably ends up being something I can put a calendar on. This year is no exception! The hardest part, for me, is deciding on the sentiment to use. As I was looking through all my sets for an appropriate one that fits throughout the whole year, I happened upon Banner Blessings. I haven’t used it in a while, but it was a great fit for my club ladies. And bonus – you can score it for half price in the clearance section, while supplies last!  These are so quick and easy to make. It takes just 2 pieces to make the base – 4 ¼” x 11” and 4 ¼” x 5 ½”. I found the easiest visual online at:  http://www.cardcreationsbybeth.com/2009_11_01_archive.html
