Sent With Love & Family Reunion Card

Hey Stampers,

Its officially April !! I love when March turns to April ... it feels like spring is FINALLY on its way ! Even though we are still mostly covered with snow here in Newfoundland (must be some sort of April Fools joke ... haha). The card I am showing you today is one I made with the awesome Sent With Love bundle ! Its available only until the end of this month, so if you haven't purchased it yet, please do ! It has such cute images in its stamp set and the DSP is beautiful !! And if you purchase it as a bundle, you get an extra 20% Discount PLUS a package of the Calypso Coral Bakers Twine !! A great deal if I've ever seen one !! I made this card to send to my father and sister in law in Florida, from my son. Yes you did read that correctly. My father AND my sister in law. My father and I are married to a sister and a brother! SO imagine trying to BUY a card for that family dynamic !! Thats where the awesome Family Reunion stamp set comes in !! LOL So, take a look at what I came up with !!


Now is that CUSTOM or is that custom ?? I dare you to find a Grandpa and Aunt card anywhere !! LOL There are lots o fun elements on this card, but I will start with my sentiment piece. I took the Please Deliver To stamp from Sent With Love and colored it with my Island Indigo, Calypso Coral and Real Red markers. I stamped it on a 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" pice of Whisper White. I used my Calypso Marker for the little "my" as well, because the stamp says "for my" and I only needed the one word. This sentiment came together really easily, and I didn't even use my Stamp-a-ma-jig ! I added a bit of bling with a Fashionable Heart embosslit done in the Red Glimmer paper. I also rounded the corners with my 3/16" Corner Punch. I stamped 2 of the heart stamp images, one each in Calypso Coral and Pool PArty. These were punched with my Postage Stamp Punch and adhered them to the back of my sentiment piece.

I colored the cute little airplane with my Island Indigo and Real Red markers and stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock. This I punched with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and layered it onto a Pool Party scalloped circle that I die cut from the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die. A tiny heart from the Owl Punch in Red Glimmer Paper really goes well inside that stamped heart. My background layer is a piece of Whisper White that I embossed with the Cloudy Day embossing folder. LOVE those clouds with the airplanes !! My DSP is a fun pattern from the Sent With Love DSP pack. I cut it at 2-1/4" x 5-1/4" and adhered some Calypso Coral strips that I had die cut using the Large Scallop Edgelit. I also used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to decorate the scallops. Love it !!


Here is a view of the awesome envelope I sent it in ! I took the same DSP from my card and covered the flap of the envelope. The special delivery stamp is from the Sent With Love set, and I stamped it in Island Indigo. The little "from" is from the Fabulous Phrases set and its stamped in Pool Party ink. The their big "custom" point here is the Jackson stamp ! That is a Personalized Stamp that I ordered of my son's name !! This is the Large Text-Only stamp in the Basic One Line option. And you can get up to 16 characters ! I use it a lot, I just love it !! I stamped that one in Real Red ink.

Well, thats my super personalized card for today !! I hope you liked it. My dad and sister in law LOVED it ! She may or may not have cried ... hahaha ... Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
