Better Get Better

Stampingville: Better Get Better Card

There's no better way to send get well wishes than with a bright and cheerful handmade card! This card is very easy to create, but packs a lot of WOW with the shiny embossing.

I borrowed a favorite design from my talented friend Sue, and even kept the gorgeous earthy colors she used because they go together so well and remind me of summer turning to fall. Hopefully that won't be happening too soon - I'm still enjoying summer weather, thankyouverymuch.

The clear embossed image repeated on the panels is from the Flowering Flourishes stamp set. A perfect fit for the panels!

TIPS FOR CREATING:
  • The panels measure 1-1/8" x 3-1/2".
  • The background panel measures 5" x 3-3/4".
  • Swipe the panels with the Embossing Buddy before stamping to reduce moisture and static from the cardstock. This reduces all those pesky stray little specks when you heat emboss.
Stampingville: Quick & easy embellishment cluster

The little embellishment cluster is created by stamping the smallest image from the Daydream Medallions stamp set and clear embossing. The image is then die-cut using the smallest Floral Frames Framelit. It's topped off with a Vintage Faceted Designer Button tied with Baker's Twine.

The sentiment is from the new A Dozen Thoughts stamp set. I love this set of greetings - twelve often-used greetings in fresh and fun fonts - perfect for a variety of cards.

I better get better ... a move on! I leave for the Stampin' Up! Convention in less than 48 hours. Eek! I only have 652175412 things left on my to-do list.

Have a great week.
