Happy Monday stampers. Today’s card features Sea of Textures which is a fantastic stamp set on page 153 of the annual catalog. Now that saleabration is over it will be nice to take a look at the annual catalog again, it needs a little love don’t you think?
Happy Mail from Sandra Allman
This beautiful card was made by Sandra Allman from Prince George British Columbia. Sandy used lots of extra details to make this card stand out. What she might not have known is that Gerard is an avid scuba diver! He loves to scuba dive when he goes on holidays, so he is really excited about our upcoming trip to Maui. This is the first Stampin’Up! trip that he is going to experience. Hopefully it will be the first of many. Let’s take a look at this bright and happy card.
Here is the inside of the card. The coordinating Under the Sea dies make is easy to add those special extra touches such as sand dollars, sea grass, anemones and an octopus of course. Sandy added a whimsical fun touch with the little googly eyes which made me smile.
I searched my older blog posts and found one from 2018 where I also used Sea of Textures. The best part is that this blog posts also had some super cool pictures from my trip to Alaska with my son Oliver. Isn’t it wonderful how pictures can bring back a flood of great memories? You can see them too right here!
Prince George, British Columbia
It’s always interesting to know a little bit more about the place a person comes from. Prince George is the largest city in Northern British Columbia and it was named after King George lll. It started as a fur trading outpost but really became established when the railway came. Doesn’t it look beautiful?
Coffee and a Card subscriptions
I am super excited to share with you a new program that was suggested by a customer who lives out of town. She requested a coffee and a card monthly subscription. This is how it works. You pay $60 a month and you get a packet mailed to you every week. As a bonus you will get a $20 gift certificate towards Stampin’Up! product. If you order online from me, I will etransfer you the $20 after you place your order. In the event that you do not live in Canada, you can use this $20 towards other card kits or pdf tutorials.
Thanks so much for joining me today, I am so happy you are here. Please leave a comment if you were inspired by Sandy’s card. The sun is shining today and I am already looking forward to spending time outside. With all the social isolation it is so good for the soul to commune with nature. It is God’s balm for the weary and the worn. Breathe deeply and know that you are loved with an everlasting love.
