Celebrate Everyday Heroes with Stampin' Up! ®

Stampin' Up! ® and I invite you to celebrate, honor, and appreciate the special actions people make to show you they care. You can help by celebrating someone whom you appreciate with a card. The Everyday Heroes campaign runs through June 30, 2022 but you don't have to let that be the end of your own celebrating heroes. 

The Everyday Heroes campaign focuses on the people who make small differences that touch our lives. These are the people who hold open a door, pay it forward in a fast-food line, or simply smile and say hello. We honor and celebrate the everyday heroes who go out of their way to show how much they care about others. This campaign is a way to appreciate the little acts of kindness that make a world of difference. Join Stampin’ Up! in celebrating, honoring, and recognizing the work of everyday heroes in your life. 

As a Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrator I have lots of ways to help you show the people in your life how much they mean to you. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, marking an anniversary, or just letting someone know that you appreciate all they do, Stampin' Up! ® has stamps, dies, and embellishments to help. There’s something for every level of crafter to show the most important people in your life just how special they are.

Here is a simple card I made to celebrate an everyday hero, my postal carrier. I live in a rural area in Cental Missouri and our postal carriers work long hours delivering the mail.

You can find all the products used for this project below. I used the 2022-2023 In Colors, Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, and Orchid Oasis. The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" in Sweet Sorbet. I used the stamp set Simply Fabulous to stamp the flowers in Sweet Sorbet, leaves in Parakeet Party, the corners are Tahitian Tide, inside of the flowers is Orchid Oasis and the greeting stamped in Starry Sky. Just a fun card, bright and cheery. 

I would love to see what you make to Celebrate an Everyday Hero! Leave a comment with a photo of a card you would like to share.

Not sure about the rest of the world but here in Missouri, USA, the weather is turning nice. Last week the temps were in the high 90's and this week the temps are back in the high 60's low 70's.  Before that we had rain for days, which gave me the opportunity to work on designing cards.

May 3rd, the Stampin' Up! ® 2022-2023 Annual Catalog launched and oh my goodness it is full of amazing products. I love to see all the new Designer Series Paper, when I saw the Hues Of Happiness DSP I fell in love. I knew that was the paper I was going to use for my customer thank you cards. 

The design for my card is a double gate fold. Fun and easy to create multiples at one time. I used both sides of the DSP, the bold floral is the focal point, while the brushed ink is the panels. Using Basic Black as the card base really popped the colors in the paper. For the greeting I used a new bundle from the Annual Catalog, Charming Sentiments.   This bundle is full of wonderful greeting and the best part of the bundle is the matching die set, Sentiment Silhouettes.  If you're like me, I love the look of the fussy cut greetings but, I hate to fussy cut. This bundle does it all! To add a bit of "Bling" I used the Champaign Rhinestones. I wanted a soft look for the greeting, so I used Smoky Slate Ink.
