Easy Handmade Card Featuring Painted Poppies Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Either you have a LOT of time to craft now (happy face) or even less time to craft now (frowny face).  Let's take a few minutes for ourselves, gather the supplies listed below and give this card a try.

Three (3) things I love about this card for our #staysafe #stayhome days:

1. Technique. The handmade DSP in the background is created using the monochromatic technique of inking an image with the coordinating ink color (or you can just use Versamark!). So pretty.
2. No special tools or adhesives. Each piece can be cut with a small trimmer or a pair of scissors (or you could use your favorite dies). Regular adhesives, not even one dimensional on this card (but you could if you wanted to!)
3. Coloring. Last but not least, a good bit of coloring using your Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write Markers, Watercolor Pencils or whatever you have available!

(And how about that stamped envelope flap!)

Important Announcement:  This Saturday is the April Global SU Share Fair. I have teamed with fellow demonstrators around the globe to bring a full day of Facebook Live video demonstrations into your stamp space this Saturday, April 25th -- my time slot is 12:15 p.m. I will still hold our online workshop at 1:30 p.m. It will be the same cards so you can attend either one or both! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set (or Butterfly Wishes) and the Butterfly Duet Punch.

Joining the Facebook Global SU Share Fair is by invitation only. So please PM me that you want to join the group to receive your invitation. You will need to accept the invitation to join the group.

Announcing Plans for May's Online Workshop
*I am afraid we will not be able to meet in person again (frowny face), but I am planning well in advance (happy face).

May's workshop will be centered around another stamp set and punch -- the Daisy Lane Bundle (p. 23 of the Annual Catalog). This one is a current bundle so bundle pricing (10% discount). I don't think that many of you have this stamp set/punch yet, but at the bundle pricing it is a little less painful on the wallet. I will circulate full instructions on how to order using the May Host Code for your own stamp set/punch on Friday, May 1. Once you place your online order, I will get to you the card kit packets that will include the cardstock/DSP, ribbon, embellishments, and envelopes at no additional fee.* The "get to you" will be in some manner (either by mail or hand delivery using my new method called "ring and run"). This will be so fun for us all.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: If you do not already have an online account, when you set up your account, PLEASE be sure to NOT click "no contact" as I will not be able to send you your free card kit packets.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!.

Stamp On!!

(January 3 - June 2, 2020)

If you placed an order from me over the past year, you likely have already received a copy of the 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Spring Occasions Catalog) in the mail. If you did not receive one, please contact me immediately and let's fix that. If you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send you a copy of your very own. Chock full of inspiration and ideas.

As always, if you have any questions, or need assistance, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)
