Something Special and Feeling Grateful!

Ever feel just overwhelmed with gratitude?  Try making something special by hand to give to someone who you want to express thankfulness! I sure have this month as I have been making up some of the cards to send out to the supporters that give to our ministry on a monthly bases. We are always grateful for people who have come along and shouldered with us. We love to hand stamp as many as we can.  In a pinch, I will make up some photo shot cards for the kids that come to the ranch to use as a demo card. It helps them to get an idea of how to use sets and gadgets. There is nothing more meaningful than to make a hand stamped card. I used Stampin’ Up’s new set from the fall last year, 2016, and the Paisley Framelits Dies. (on sale too) LOVE those things! Just stamp and put the platelet over the stamped image, roll in my BIG SHOT and whoa…quick and perfect images without the hassle of cutting them out by hand! The background pine cones are from the folder emboss the image and using the simmering white just adds a little touch of sparkle. Enjoy making an adorable card and of course, add your layers!
