Mixed Bunch Love Notes

Oh my gosh... how I have missed sharing the past couple of days.  I have been busy with clubs, a workshop, and an awesome day Saturday at a My Digital Studio retreat followed by our demo PAWS (play alot with stamps) meeting.  It's so much fun being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator !

Today I would like to share one of the make and takes we did at the PAWS meeting.  I know many of you have already purchased the Mixed Bunch stamp set ( C125537,W125535) and are asking to see more projects using it.  This one is a "bunch" of love notes (3" by 3" cards) using the newest In Colors all "mixed" up.

Cindy Shuster is the demo that designed this make and take.  She was able to take a pack of the assorted In Color card stock, coordinating ink, and brads and come up with dozens of these cute little cards. The coordinating Blossom Punch (125603) makes mass producing these notes quick and easy!

The sentiment on each card is different.  The Fabulous Phrases (120501) stamp set has 30 words that you can use separately or group together.  It's a set I go to often.  On the inside we actually used a business stamp set  for demos but with Stampin' Up! the possibilities for sentiments on the inside are endless! Wouldn't you love to have a bunch of these love notes on hand?  Use them for birthdays, get well, or just I'm thinking of you today.

How many of you have a stash of cards to choose from when you need one? Or do you rush around at the last minute making a card before you walk out the door?  I know...I've been there. :)

Before I leave you today I would like to remind you that the Hoppers are giving away a blog gift on Easter Sunday.  All you need to do is visit each blog and leave a comment to be entered.  We would love for you to play along. Check it out HERE.

And over the next couple of days I will be sharing some of my swaps from the PAWS meeting.  Today's share was made by Anne Arnold and I have to say it was one of my favorites.  She doesn't have a blog right now so I'm sorry that I can't direct you to other samples of her work. 

She used the KISS technique with this card.  The two stamps that she kissed together are Inspired by Nature and Weathered.  Sorry to say I don't have the Weathered stamp and it's retired. :(  
I'm thinking that maybe the Wonderfully Worn background stamp may create an interesting effect.  Have you tried this technique and do you have another suggestion of a stamp to use with Inspired by Nature?

Remember that Sale-a-bration ends on March 31.  Every $50 you order earns you a free product from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  It's a great time to stock up on products!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!
