Hello stampers and happy Tuesday to you. I know…it should have been “happy Monday” but I was in no shape to write a blog post yesterday. My beloved Pap is declining rapidly and that is hard especially during COVID times. This card, Wishing You the Berry Best, is clean, simple and refreshing. Could I go so far as to say a balm for the soul?
Wishing You The Berry Best
With this post I am indeed wishing you the berry best for the coming year. We have all had a difficult year behind us and we all hope for better times ahead. I know for sure that we will be grateful for the things that we used to take for granted and that is a good thing. More than ever people need happy mail and I am happy to be in the happy mail business. I hope that I have inspired you this year with my blog and sharing my life stories. This card will undoubtedly make someone happy.
This card is so clean and simple. The only thing I did to step it up a notch is cut an extra set of leaves and pop them up. I LOVE raspberries but I didn’t get to pick any this year because I spent the summer in Holland. That seems so very long ago now!!
You can’t see it in the picture but I added Wink of Stella to the raspberries for a pretty sparkle. I used Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green for a very fresh colour combination.
How to Get it For Free!
The stamp set and paper are free with a $120 purchase during saleabration which is from January 5 until February 28 this year. Some years saleabration items have sold out so I would strongly advise that you get your orders in quickly at the beginning of January so that you get exactly what you want. Here is my suggested product purchase so that you get the most value for your money.
- Sweet Strawberry Bundle #156214 $43.
- Poppy Parade ink pad #147050 $10.25
- Granny Apple Green ink pad #147095 $10.25
- Brights Collection cardstock #146975 $12.25
- Basic White thick cardstock #159229 $11.25
- Memento Black Ink Pad #132708 $8.25
- Pacific Point Ink Pad #147098 $10.25
- Wink of Stella glitter brush #141897 $11
- Ladybug trinkets #154299 $10.25
The total for this is $126.50 and of course you can tweak it based on what you already have, but this assortment of product will allow you to mix and match the colours so that you get the most out of your free products. The pretty ladybugs are just the icing on the cake so to speak. I need to look in my stash to see if I can find them, they would have made a nice addition to my card!
Open House canceled!
I was really excited about hosting a COVID friendly Open House but with the coming four week lockdown in Ontario this is no longer possible. Hopefully I will be able to fill the gap with regular videos showcasing all the amazing products from the upcoming Occasions catalog. If you are unable to pick up a copy of the catalogs from my front porch, let me know and I will pop some in the mail for you. The catalogs are free but there is a $5 postage fee which I would refund you on your first order.
Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you are doing well and that you have a super day.
