Thanks Big Time

I used to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I love the company, the products, the people.  I still follow the blogs of several amazing designers.  SU's new catalog was released on June 1 and as always there are lots of new goodies.  I saw this card on one of the blogs and knew I had to case it.

It's a masculine card, which is sometimes difficult to put together.  I have a male friend who wears bow ties and knew I had to make it for him.  The cardstock is one of the new 2012-2014 in colors, Midnight Muse and one of SU's staple colors, Cajun Craze.  The dsp is from a new collection called Comfort Cafe.  I love how everything coordinates!  I used the Petite Pennants Builder punch and the 1/2" circle punch to make the bow ties.  Not my idea, but brilliant anyway.  The sentiment is from the set A Word for You.  It's available in digital format and is only $3.95 for 6 sentiments including the one I used.

Tomorrow I'm heading to a demonstrator's open house to see all the new SU products and to do a make and take.  Looking forward to some FUN!!!


  1. I just adore this card - such a simple but so clever card. Thanks for the inspiration on this one!

  2. Very cute Vicki. Love the colors as well as the clever bow ties made from banner dies. Great job. :)
