An Everyday Bouquet

C9 Everyday Bouquet Turnabout Thank you card ideas Michelle Gleeson #Concordand9th

Last month when this stamp set came out I goofed and forgot to add it to my cart before I checked out. So I (painfully) waited it to add it to my Concord and 9th order this month. Yes it seems I want at least one of the sets in their launch each month.

This set is called the Everyday Turnabout and it is so pretty. I used Petal Pink (swoon), Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and  Tim Holtz Distress Oxide- Faded Jeans.

This is heading out to a woman who works at Northern Trust who assisted me this week. She made my day and I want her to know it. The smallest acts of kindness can make such a big difference.

Who will you send a card to this week to say thank you?

Have a wonderful weekend.

Geometric Congrats for FMS374

C9 Geometrics Stamp, FMS374, SSS Painted Congrats Die, Congratulations card, Michelle Gleeson

A colleague’s wife is now part of a co-op of artists in our community. She had her grand opening this week so I created a card to send her. My inspiration came from the Freshly Made Sketch this week.

FMS Final 374-001

The circles were created using a collection of items; Concord & 9th Geometrics Stamp, Stampin’ Up! Broadway Birthday and an eraser head! I am tickled with the result.

The sentiment was created using three Poppy Parade die cuts of the Simon Says Stamp Painted Congrats Die. The SU Adhesive Sheets added to the card stock before die cutting make stacking intricate dies a cinch. A few gems provide the finishing touch.

I carried the circles to the inside of the card as well. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp We Can Do This.

Happy Wishes Birthday Card

SSS Sketched Flowers Birthday Card Idea Michelle Gleeson 30 day Marker

I have been experimenting with using Copic Markers; a recent addition to my craft room after spending time with some crafty friends who are a terribly wonderful influence on me. This stamp set from Simon Says Stamp was the perfect set to use several of my copic color palettes.

And I thought it was great for this week’s Global Design Project theme and a dear friend’s birthday!

Don’t these flowers just say Spring!

The Love You to Pieces Bundle is from the Annual Catalog and will remain in my stash long after it is retired. I love puzzles and the sentiment Love you to pieces.

There is very little stamping but my Big Shot got a workout!  It was fun putting the pieces together to create the rainbow stripes.
