Stampin' Up! Darling Donkeys - Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop!  We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration.  We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set.  We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

The card I am sharing with you today is the thank you card I have created to send to all of my customers who place an order this month.  I love sending thank you cards and this one is darling! 

I have been seeing slimline cards all over the internet recently and finally decided to try my hand at one.  I think the usual dimensions for a slimline card are around 8 1/2"x 3 1/2", or something similar, to fit in a #9 or #10 business envelope.  I don't have envelopes that size, but I do have plenty of press and seal envelopes that measure 3 5/8"x 6 1/2".  So, my cards measure 6 -14"x3 1/4".  In my opinion this is a perfect measurement because I can cut a piece of 6"x6" designer series paper in half to use as the card fronts for two cards!  Or, I get 8 card fronts from a piece of 12"x12" paper. 

The little butterflies are from Stampin' Up!'s Pampered Pets stamp set.  I colored them with Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  Then, I went over them with a little bit of Wink of Stella to make them sparkle.  Once they were dry, I fussy cut them (and the donkey) with Paper Snips. 

The sentiment was cut out with a die from the Potted Succulents Dies set.  I put it halfway through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, then took it out and adjusted the die to make it cut a shorter banner. 

I used the butterfly stamp again on the inside of the card, alternating between Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight. 

This card uses several Sale-A-Bration items!  Place an order soon so you don't miss out on all of these great, limited time products!  (Available until February 28, 2021 or while supplies last)
