Best Thoughts

One of the most valuable gems in the Stampin' Up! catalogs is the host rubberstamp sets.  What is that?  Well, it's the exclusive rubberstamp sets only available to those who host a stamping gathering (or place a minimum $150 order), and my card today features the Best Thoughts set, available at an incredible price of $10 clear mount or $14 wood mount.  The actual value of this rubberstamp set is $17 and $23 respectively.  These reduced cost stamps are one of the best parts of hosting!

This is one of the handmade cards we made in my monthly stamp clubs in July.  It's a total CASE of a card by the very talented Ronda Wade.  I love the ideas she gives on Creative Corner

Best ThoughtsMy stamp clubs are a great way to stamp regularly (we meet once a month), learn tips, tricks, and techniques, earn free products and get access to host only rubberstamp sets, and make new crafty friends.  Essentially, you get a free monthly class (our club meetings), and full information is here.  You may join anytime, and we would love to have you!

This handmade card featuring Best Thoughts uses a technique fondly called "fussy cutting" amongst paper crafters.  Personally, I am NOT a fan of fussy cutting because it's too fussy for me! It's not hard, just time-consuming.  But sometimes, fussy cutting is worth it for an extra special card for an extra special someone.  Stampin' Up! Paper Snips are a must-have for fussy cutting!  At $1l0 they are a steal and super-sharp for precision cutting.  My stamp clubbers loved this card!  Please note it also features Mint Macaron, one of our scummy new In Colors!

The Stampin' Up! supply list is below.  Simply click on any of the photos to get a better look at the products used and/or to browse/buy from my online store.  I always list both the wood mount and clear mount stamps so you can find them readily.  Thanks for stopping by today!
