Happy 60th Birthday to a lovely crafty friend - So Detailed meets Succulent Thinlits Dies

Well - she is today officially 60.  Happy Birthday June (actually it was yesterday - but I wanted to be sure she had received it before sharing it here !!!!).

I have become acquainted with a really lovely lady through our mutual love of paper crafting.   We have attended a crafting workshop together, chat over Facebook regularly and soon I shall be putting on my dancing shoes and helping her celebrate this landmark birthday in style !!

So I felt it was only fitting to create a special card for her, capturing the style of card we
made at the workshop we both attended last year, but this time using Stampin' Up! products.

So here it is :-




I don't normally make large cards - this is a 6 3/4 x 6 3/4 inch card.  The So Detailed Thinlits fit within the top layer perfectly, creating the delicate backdrop for the pretty flowers which are from the Succulents Thinlits Dies.   The ivy leaves are not a Stampin' Up! product, but I felt they added something special.

As it is a large card - I used both my Gemini Cutter and my Big Shot.  The Big Shot cut the flowers, leaves and toppers.    The Geminia cut the background So Detailed Dies.

I created a little glitz by adding Dazzling Diamonds to the number 60, having applied some Versamark and Heat and Stick beforehand.

She has safely received my card now - so I am able to share it with you.

Hope you like it.

A Nice Sparkly Customer Thank You


Isn't the beautiful Falling In Love Designer Series Paper pack just gorgeous ?

In pretty soft shades of Sweet Sugarplum, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride, each of the papers are just stunning yet really subtle.

One of the papers in particular really catches my eye and it is this one that prompted me to make it the subject of next week's customer Thank You packs.


I wanted to capture the twinkle suggested by the papers and so I created the topper using my Succulents Thinlits Dies and applying some Heat and Stick Powder together with the super sparkly Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

I love making these little cover note books and co-ordinating the pens.  Inside is a little calendar, and the feedback I receive is that customers find these little note books really useful and handy to pop in their handbags.

I made a co-ordinating card layering the DSP onto some Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper and die cutting the word "Thanks".  This is one of the dies contained in the Hello You Thinlits pack.


So these glittering little gems will be winging their way to one lucky customer next week.  But don't worry - I have a little pile of these goodies waiting to go to good homes.
