IM70 – Healing Hugs

Happy Monday everyone! And guess what?  School is official OVER (well…once I turn in grades) and it doesn’t start back up until next Monday.  Oh well…what can I say.  I wish I could say I have the week off but it is filled with meetings.  But I have new stuff that I am playing with and you’ll be see new stuff from Create with Connie and Mary – WOOO HOOO!!!   This week our inspiration photo is an AWESOME wreath…

Isn’t that just GORGEOUS? This is my take on it…

I wanted to use my Healing Hugs set – it’s been a bit neglected.

Here’s the details…

  • Night of Navy – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, stamp greeting using Night of Navy, layer two strips of the Balmy Blue Gingham ribbon – 5/8 x 5 1/2 behind the panel and add to card front
  • Stamp Flower two times using Gorgeous Grape and leaves using Pear Pizzazz, cut everything out and layer.
  • Night of Navy Gingham ribbon – take two pieces and fold over, staple folds in place and add behind the flowers, add to card front using dimensionals

This is such a nice set!

Waiting for your new stuff but still want to promote things retiring…

As we wait for the NEW catalog products to be available, we want to remind you of a few of our Collections with stamp sets that are retiring! These tutorials would be great for your “Retirement” classes in May! See our available Collections HERE!

Set(s): Healing Hugs
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Gingham DSP
