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)

  • Adhesives: Stampin' Seal, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, and Elmer's Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive (optional)

*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

  • Basic Supply Kit: paper trimmer, paper snips/scissors, bone folder, acrylic stamping blocks

  • Stampin' Up! Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine

It would be great to hear from you on any topic that's on your mind. I do not have to be your primary demonstrator or even one of your usual go-to resources for inspiration, tips, advice, etc., It would be very beneficial if I can hear from you on any crafting-related topic imaginable.

  • What are your favorite types of cards?

  • Do you want to see more fun-folds?

  • Do you want to see more gift packaging?

  • Do you want to see how I use Stampin' Up! supplies for scrapbooking and memory keeping?

  • What are the top 3 things you admire most about your favorite crafters (I'd really love to hear this!!!!).

  • Do you have a love-hate relationship with adhesives?

  • Do your cards stand the test of time or do they tend to fall flat?

Tell me your pain-points and I will help (or assemble of team of crafters who can come together to help). If you're thinking it or struggling with it, it's a given that someone else is facing the same challenge. Let's help everyone.
