I needed several thank you cards next week for customers. I love making little 3″ x 3″ cards to put them in with their orders.

Can you believe I found little red love notes from when they first came out in my stamping stuff the other day? I couldn’t believe it. I knew I had to use those.

I really wanted to use my Summer Picnic Designer paper. I am such a sucker for Orange/Red color combos right now. I love the way it looks.


I cut a 1 1/2″ x 2 7/8″ piece of designer paper, ticket corner punched the bottom two corners and adhered it to the bottom of my Love Note.

5/8″ wide Olive grosgrain ribbon was tied around it.

I inked up the cherries from All Through The Year first with Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive markers. Next I took my Real Red marker and covered most of the cherries, leaving only a highlight in Pumpkin. I also added darker shading to the stem and leaf with Garden Green. I misted the image and stamped it on Shimmery White cardstock. The image was punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch and then layered first on a 1 3/8″ Old Olive, then on a black scallop circle.

The sentiment is from Fundamental Phrases and is stamped in Black StazOn (I threw my Basic Black ink pad in the trash! I never use it. I didn’t like the purple color it had) on Shimmery White, punched out with the Window word punch leaving a bit of room on the right hand side. I cut that end straight, added a 1/4″ black circle there and topped it off with an Olive brad.

On a personal note: Rick got in allright. He was asleep on his feet. He had been up almost 48 hours straight. He came home, handed out gifts, ate, showered and fell asleep. He is still sleeping. It’s soooo good to have him back home. Tomorrow we are leaving early for our 8 hour trip to Tennessee! I hope to get some good shots of the Smoky’s to share with you!

  35. Beate, it is so wonderful to think of you family all together again. Makes me feel good, too! loved your cheery cherry thanks. i have the paper on order, too. also, wanted to tell you what SU did about my PURPLE black ink pad. i was a bit ashamed of it in a stamp camp I was having here in Haiti but had no other choice on hand as my black Staz-on was being used for another project. someone even said…”eeuuuww! why is this black purple…will mine do that, too?” oops. well, I emailed my wonderful demonstrator Ruth Murphy about the problem. we dedided to just order a reinker and see if that helped. no go. next she forwarded my email to SU and before too long I had a brand new pad in the mail INCLUDING a reinker bottle. wow! I was so pleased as I do think this is a product flaw. I have heard that not all SU pads seem to do that. anyway, just thought I would pass along the story to you.

    Enjoy your family time!
