Bloomin' Thanks

I had a moment of reflection today.  With a bit of remembering and looking up on the computer, I realised I joined Stampin' Up! in July 2008.  I was still home on maternity leave with Matthew and was spending enough on stamps that it was suggested to me to join to receive the discount :)  So I did.  And now almost five years later, I've become part of a wonderful team of girls, have a team of my own and have met so many lovely customers, demonstrators and more who have now become my friends.

So it's with much pleasure, that I try to send thank you cards to all my customers after they've placed an order with me.  I've not yet sent my January thank you cards, but I've made a whole bunch of them, ready for sending.  So of course, I decided to use a card I found on Pinterest to which I adapted with the Sale-a-Bration Bloomin' Marvellous stamp set!

These three cards were my choice of styling.  

The card with the pink butterfly is based on the original design.  Funnily enough, all I did was sponge Pretty in Pink ink over an already cut and embossed little butterfly in Very Vanilla.  Very Vanilla didn't do any justice on the white background, so sponging fixed that one!  Little pearls of course just had to be added. 

 Butterflies stamped with Cool Caribbean ink from the Bloomin' Marvellous stamp set (love Sale-a-Bration!!)

This little bird, who I think is a hummingbird, is stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  I've adhered the bird so that the wings, tail and beak lift up from the page.

So these are my January's thank you cards.  I hope you like them.  The original card can be found here.

So here's what I used:
Stamps: Daydream Medallions, Bloomin' Marvellous (Sale-a-Bration) & So Happy for You
Inks: Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry & Cool Caribbean
Papers: Whisper White & Very Vanilla CS
Other: Big Shot, Precious Butterflies Embosslit, Sponge Dauber & Pearls
