Wow – it’s Wednesday can you believe it? I’m sharing a Get Well card using a simple stamped rose from the Abstract Impressions stamp set paired with the new Dynamic Impressions Tufted Embossing Folder. Yes, I’m using the Abstract Impressions stamp set again! I can’t stop using it – it’s so versatile. Make sure you read the How To DIY section for some important information regarding the gorgeous Tufted embossing folder. Here’s today’s card:
This is a simple card but I believe the 3D Textured Impressions Tufted Embossing Folder turned this simple card into a WOW card? Don’t you agree? If you’ve read my blog you know by now that my new favorite Stampin Up color is Lovely Lipstick and had to use it again to make my Get Well card. I’ve never been a fan of the color green but the new Granny Apple Green is gorgeous and I was surprised that it paired well with Lovely Lipstick – who knew?
HOW TO DIY:
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folders are quite thicker than the regular embossing folders and create a deeper impression on your paper, giving it a 3D effect. Since the plastic embossing folder is much thicker you need to read the instructions on the package on how to use them. You only use 1 (one) standard cutting plate when you make your “sandwich” to feed it through the Big Shot die cutting machine. Let me repeat that: Use ONLY ONE cutting plate. You will damage your Big Shot if you try to use 2 cutting plates. OK, I don’t mean to scare you from using the 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folders because they are all beautiful. You can see them on page 222. Try them, you’ll love them!
I almost forgot to mention the new Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp set. When I saw that the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was on the retiring products list I was crushed. That stamp set had over 30 greetings perfect for every card giving occasion – I was crushed! I should have known back then that Stampin Up would not disappoint me and released the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set with 32 greetings! It’s even better than Teeny Tiny Wishes because the fonts are gorgeous! I like that the get well soon greeting was replaced with “hope you’re feeling better.” It seems less bossy than “Get Well Soon.”

6.26.2018 Journal entry
It’s been 14 months and 4 days since we moved from San Antonio to the Texas Panhandle. I’ve had some major life changes within that timeframe. I retired from a job I truly loved and then went through the stressful process of selling our home and moving across the state to build a new home and life. Life here is not what I expected it to be. If you would have told me 2 years ago that I would be living in a small college town with a vibrant town square I would not have believed it. And yet, here I am happily living in Canyon, Texas with my dear husband.
It was tough leaving my large family, my huge network of friends and fellow paper crafters and my beautiful San Antonio, Texas. But, the good news is that my husband read about an organization on the Next Door app called New Neighbors of Amarillo and I attended my first meeting in July 2017. I’ve made many friends through this organization and joined many of their events, such as Arts & Crafts, Game Day, Book Club, Out and About, Birthday Club, Bunch for Lunch and lots of other monthly activities.
I’ve also been trying lots of things to try to rebuild my Stampin Up business but most importantly I want to share what I love – rubber stamping and making cards. I love making cards and I love to show people how easy and how much fun it is to create something beautiful with just paper, ink and rubber stamps. I love it and have loved it since I first stumbled into Carol’s Corner, a rubber stamp store in Universal City close to Randolph AFB over 25 years ago. I hope that you grow to love making cards as much as I do, because each card is a work of art with heart.
