Let’s Take a Closer Look At Each Card:

So one of the suggestions I received was to make the card a Sympathy card.  So I dug through my stamp sets and thought that this sentiment from the Bold Bouquet stamp set would make a good Sympathy sentiment.  I just stamped some Basic White cardstock using the Wild Wheat In Color ink and then die cut it out with the Stylish Shapes dies and created a Wild Wheat matte piece using the same dies.  I popped this up on the card front and added a few of the In Color dots.

Another suggestion was to use the Meadow Dies and Vellum.  So I die cut the leaf image out of basic white cardstock and die cut the circle out of vellum using the Stylish Shapes dies.  The sentiment piece is also a die cut from the Meadow Dies.  These die cut pieces were popped up and then I added the In Color dots.

For the final card I combined a few of the same elements and added the circle sentiment to the vellum piece.  Again I added the In Color dots to finish off the card.

So what do you think?  Which of these variations is your favorite?  What would you change and what would you keep?  Did you enjoy playing along with my challenge?  Would you be up for more challenges?

Customer Appreciation for July:

My customer appreciation gift for July is a mini tool caddy.  This little tool caddy is so versatile you will definitely want to add it to your craft room.   What will you put in your tool caddy?  Make it a Watercolor caddy or maybe a caddy for all your miscellaneous crafting items.  The choice is yours but I’m sure you’ll love it!  Colors of the mini tool caddy will vary.  Here are just a few of the tool caddy’s the 3D printer has been spitting out this week.  Do you have one coming your way?

How do you receive this mini tool caddy?

Place a minimum $50.00 online order with me (before shipping and tax) and use this host code: Q9HARHDY

Just pay the Shipping

Once I have received your order I’ll send you a PayPal invoice for the shipping of the mini tool caddy.  Depending on your area code the price will vary.   I will send it in a padded envelope to the address used when you placed your order. 

Why am I charging for shipping this time when last month I sent the mono glue holders for free?
– Trial and error on my part; if this is a business for me I need to make a profit on my sales and not give away everything.
– By sending you a PayPal invoice for the shipping I know for a fact that you wanted to receive the gift, if payment is not received in 2 days I’ll cancel the invoice and will know you wish not to receive the mini tool caddy.
– Not only will this help to insure me that you wanted the free gift but will help in keeping the minimum order amount at a lower price point.

Can I purchase a Mini Tool Caddy?

–  I will not be selling any of my Mono Glue Holders, Large Tool Caddy’s or the Mini Tool Caddy’s.  You can earn these for FREE with my Stamp Camp Rewards.  See my Rewards page HERE.
