Thanks from your furry friend

StampinMojo SSS Big Thanks Words, SU D is for Dog Thank you card ideas

Our fur babies steal our hearts and fill a part of the hole in our heart when our kids leave home. Recently our fur baby – Mojo – got very sick and had to go to the “specialist” another word for expensive. The doctor and her team were amazing. They were prompt in returning calls, provided immediate updates on blood work and were compassion along the way.

When I experience great service I want to express my gratitude. Being in a service industry I know how much commitment it takes to deliver such a great level of service. So I created this card.

SU D is for Dog, SSS Big Thanks Words, StampinMojo Thank you card ideas Michelle Gleeson

The dog prints are from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called D is for Dog. The “thanks” is from a new Simon Says Stamp stamp set called Big Thanks Words. It was die cut using my Brother Scan & Cut ♥.

Bundle of Love card and pillow box

StampinMojo Bundle of Love DSP  Pillow Box Die

I have a baby card and coordinating pillow box to share with you. The inspiration came from Teneale Williams. I fell in love with her project and have tapped into it as a resource for baby cards and gifts more than once. The photo is not the best. I grabbed it quickly after creating the project as it was being put to use immediately.

Bundle of Love Designer Series paper is the backdrop for the project. This DSP will be gone at the end of May with the launch of the new Annual Catalog. The Color palette is Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla and Mint Macron (returning color in the new SU Color Revamp).

I used several retired items; Something for Baby stamp set, Baby’s First Framelit Dies, Pillow Box Die and Bow Builder Punch. While the annual catalog creates a new list of retired items that does not mean they can’t be used. As a matter of fact, these items will stay in my crafty stash for many years.

What retired item is one of your favorites you will not part with? I would love to hear from you.

Birthday Hooray

Stampin Up Balloon Celebration Neat and Tangled Hooray Die Birthday card Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU.jpg

Hello! I know it has been a while since I posted on my blog. Sometimes getting on the computer after work or on the weekend is the last thing I want to do.

I created this card for a young woman in my office. She is so sweet and she loves pink. I used Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango. I think these colors are dynamite together.

The balloons are from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. They stamp so clean.♥

The sentiment is from Neat and Tangled. There is a stamp set and die. Here I just used the die. While you cannot see it in the photos I went over the pink letters with Clear Wink of Stella to add a bit of sparkle.

Let’s Celebrate with CTS#261

CTS261 NEat & Tangled Falling Circles Die SU Balloon Celebration Avery Elle Banner Bits Birthday card idea Michelle Gleeson

Hey crafty friends, I have a really quick post. I created this card for the new CASE this Sketch challenge. I was over the moon excited that my card for last week’s sketch was a team favorite. Thank you CTS team! You can check it out here.

Here is this week’s sketch:

When I saw the dots/circles on the sketch I immediately thought of this Neat & Tangled Falling Circles Die. I used it upside down and now I envision champagne bubbles to help celebrate. I love champagne so I thought that was really fun.

The sentiment is from Avery Elle’s new Banner Bits stamp set. And the balloons are from Stampin’ Up! Balloon Celebration stamp set.

I had so much fun working with this sketch. I would love to hear from you; do think the circles look like champagne bubbles?
