Stampin' Up: More Congratulations Cards

Congratulations Cards


We've had lots of excitement lately in my Stampin' Up team with some girls who've worked to achieved big promotions.  Perfect time to sit down and make some congratulations cards. 

I loved the Happy Congratulations set in the Occasions catalogue so this was a nice opportunity to give it a run. 

A few years ago at our Stampin' Up convention I learnt a trick from one of the demonstrator presenters (now who was that - I forget, if you know leave a comment and I'll link!)  It was a nice way to use ribbon scraps as a feature on a card.  Just lay some lengths together and tie them with a longer piece. 


Storing and Using Scraps Tip:  Ever since I've been saving my ribbon offcuts in a basket in a drawer and every now and then I grab a bundle that seem to work together and add them to a creation.

Feel like a bit of sparkle, perhaps a touch of disco?

Quite loving this sparkly sequin trim.  Right here

Got anyone to congratulate this month?  I made 3 cards using the same design but different colours so I've got a couple of other variations to share in the coming weeks - stay tuned. 

And since I do really love a good inspirational quote, maybe I'll finish off with one I saved this week.  Do you have any favourite quotes?  I've always loved collecting ones that speak to me.


Have a great week and happy stamping!

Cheers, Sue
