Thank yous, welcomes and congratulations | You're So Lovely

Hello! Happy Monday *grin*

We are in the first handful of days of first term holidays here at my place, so I have a quick post to share with you before the natives get restless/hungry/bored...!

I have found since working outside of my Stampin' Up! business more regularly than in it these past few months, processes and habits have become very important in order that anything gets achieved around here and the flying by the seat of my pants approach that I have favoured my entire life, whilst still my default mode, has had to take a backseat to order and organisation. An excellent but tricky lesson for folk like me...! 

One of my favourite regular processes is to create and send cards each month to thank my customers for their orders, welcome new team members and congratulate existing team members on various accomplishments.

Each month, I try to stick to a similar theme for all of the cards, thereby minimising required brain power and maximising the uses that I get out of that one idea.

Last month, the You're So Lovely stamp set from the current Occasions Catalogue was front and centre...

The stamp set co-ordinates with the very sweet You're So Lovely Project Kit, but also stands very well all by itself with the various greetings and imagery it contains.

Here are the cards that I made with it..

Stamps: You're So Lovely Paper: Watercolor Paper Ink: Basic Black Archival, Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder Accessories: Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes, Circle Collection Framelits, Oval Collection Framelits, Large Numbers Framelits, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals

The greetings and images are all stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto Watercolor Paper, then the pops of colour added freehand using an Aquapainter and various ink colours...

I love the versatility of this stamp set - so many options for sweet messages with cute images and patterns!

And speaking of versatility, check out the oval shaped stamp in the last card above. Did you see that stamp in the stamp set image that I posted further up...? I'll wait while you scroll back...

You've probably figured out that I squished the circular image into an oval shape... I needed a shape to fit the "The Adventure Begins" stamp and Oval Framelits, and being that photopolymer is completely malleable and sticks brilliantly to the clear blocks, it was easy to achieve with some minor manipulation.

Add some versatility to your stamp collection with the gorgeous You're So Lovely stamp set for sweet and simple cards!
