Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow Thinking of You Card for the Cards for Kindness Initiative

This card brings me a sense a peace and tranquility--it features the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set and Meadow Dies. This is a great bundle that can easily be overlooked, but I'm glad I added it to my collection. Flowers, background patterns, and greetings--you'll find all these things in the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set. Put them all together for perfect projects! Choose one greeting, flower, and pattern or bring several of them together for a collage effect. You're sure to convey a positive message.

Card Tutorial - Recipe

Ingredients

  • Stamp Set: Quiet Meadow

  • Dies: Meadow Dies

  • Ink Pads: Pale Papaya, Basic Gray

  • Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Basic White, Pale Papaya

  • Embossing Folder: Bark 3D

  • Ribbon & Trim: Baker's Twine Essential Pack (white)

*the non-Stampin' Up! products mentioned are my personal preference and are not endorsed by Stampin' Up!; I do not receive commissions or affiliate payments for mentioning these products


TIP: a multi-purpse spray adhesive lightly sprayed to the back of the delicate die cut stems will help keep the bouquet arrangement together as you adhere the bouquet in place; using a spray adhesive is also a great way to adhere any type of intricate and delicate die cuts to avoid using a liquid glue that tends to flood out from underneath the cut cardstock and onto the cardstock

Let's Connect, Share & Learn Together

Virtual Card Classes via Zoom

I offer live card classes open to everyone globally. If you're in the US, there are options for class kits to go, with prepared, precut project materials, PDF tutorials, live class via Zoom, with an additional $15 in Stampin' Up! products at no additional chage -- all with free shipping.

Classes will be saved for viewing for up to 30 days. You also have the option to save the video(s) to your device so you can watch them anytime you want.

Meetup Group

Find all my events and classes in one place! Have you ever used Meetup? What is Meetup? Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!


I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.

Crafting In The Stamping Nook Facebook Group

As a creative coach, I am here to help you with your projects -- I do not have to be your demonstrator for me to help! We are a community of crafters learning from each other! Members are encouraged to share crafty and DIY projects of all types (and of any brand), share tips, and of course meet others with the same crafting passion. I often share my projects, tutorials, etc., and of course, incorporate fun activities as well (prizes included)! I hope you join & participate so I can learn from you too! Everyone is welcome -- demonstrators included!
