Giftable Greetings

DSCN0391W

Isn't this sweet? I made this cute card with the August Paper Pumpkin Kit called Giftable Greetings. I love coming up with alternate ideas using these kits - they are super fun! There were only 3 products I used to make this card that didn't come in the kit. I used the DECORATIVE RIBBON BORDER PUNCH, PLAYFUL BACKGROUNDS stamp set for the stripes and the DELICATE WHITE DOILIES. You'll find them pictured down below.

Welcome to my WINDOW SHEET SERIES - Video #5!!! While this project doesn't use the Window Sheets, instead I'm featuring the ACETATE BOXES from page 13 of the Holiday Mini Catalog - you can make your own boxes in various shapes and sizes from Window Sheets...this product just makes it so much easier! You'll find a PRODUCT LIST below with everything I used to make these gifts and when you click on the products it takes you right to my Stampin' Up! store where you can order or just view the details about each one.

This is such an easy way to dress up a little gift....belly bands can be so fun!

  JOKE

 

Cancel your credit card before you die. 

Be sure and cancel your credit cards before you die! This is so priceless, and so easy to see happening, customer service being what it is today.


A lady died this past January, and Citibank billed her for February and March for their annual service charges on her credit card, and added late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance had been $0.00 when she died, but now somewhere around $60.00. A family member placed a call to Citibank. 
Here is the exchange :


Family Member: I am calling to tell you she died back in January.
Citibank:  The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.

Family Member: Maybe you should turn it over to collections.

Citibank: Since it is two months past due, it already has been.

Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?

Citibank: Either report her account to frauds division or report her to the credit bureau, maybe both!

Family Member: 'Do you think God will be mad at her?'
Citibank:'Excuse me?'
Family Member:'Did you just get what I was telling you - the part about her being dead?'

Citibank: 'Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor.'

Supervisor gets on the phone:

Family Member: 'I'm calling to tell you, she died back in January with a $0 balance.'

Citibank: ' The account was never closed and late fees and charges still apply.' 

Family Member: 'You mean you want to collect from her estate?'

Citibank: (Stammer) 'Are you her lawyer?'

Family Member: 'No, I'm her great nephew.' (Lawyer info was given) 

Citibank:'Could you fax us a certificate of death?'

Family Member: 'Sure.' (Fax number was given)

After they get the fax :

Citibank:'Our system just isn't setup for death. I don't know what more I can do to help.'

Family Member: 'Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. She won't care.'

Citibank:'Well, the late fees and charges will still apply.'

(What is wrong with these people?!?)

Family Member: 'Would you like her new billing address?'

Citibank: 'That might help....'

Family Member: Odessa Memorial Cemetery , Highway 129, Plot Number 69.'

Citibank: 'Sir, that's a cemetery!'

Family Member: 'And what do you do with dead people on your planet???'

(Priceless!!) 
And you wondered why Citibank needed help from the Feds?

Gorgeous Gourds

DSCN0702

Isn't this a pretty card? I love all the fall colors. When summer is done and I have to accept that this time of year...I do love the colors of fall!!! This is a swap card I received recently and I knew I had to share it with you. It uses the PAINTED AUTUMN DESIGNER SERIES PAPER,  some VELLUM CARDSTOCK for the leaves punched with the new LEAF PUNCH and those STITCHED SHAPES FRAMELITS (again!) - did you get those yet? You certainly won't be disappointed when you do!

DSCN0703

This greeting (don't you love the fonts?) is coming from the GOURD GOODNESS stamp set. You'll find it below. And the pumpkins....they are from the designer series paper too - just cut them out!

DSCN0704

 

Here's the GOURD GOODNESS stamp set - it will stamp the most amazing "real life" looking pumpkins and gourds you've ever seen!

Here's a couple other cards made with this set...yummy!

OSAT Blog Hop - Throwback Thursday!

www.AStampAbove.com

Welcome to the OSAT blog hop featuring a THROWBACK THURSDAY theme this month. We were challenged to create something new from an old favorite. You may be starting here or you might have just arrived from Jenny Hall's blog. However you got here - make sure you scroll down and click on the NEXT button to continue your blog hopping journey.

OSAT Banner

This is my OLD FAVORITE...a CASCADING card! This was so fun to make and it was even funner to come up with something new....

www.AStampAbove.com

Like this!!!! What do you think? I made one without all the flowers...and found that the fold is just as cool without them. I used the PAINTED AUTUMN Designer Series Paper and the PAINTED HARVEST stamp set with matching LEAF PUNCH. Love them both!

www.AStampAbove.com

 

Watch my short video here - you'll learn how easy my CASCADING CARD and this cute little mini MILK CARTON are to make:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog. 

Here's the back of my card...just a beautiful flower and a greeting that's just as sweet.

www.AStampAbove.com

Here's a view from the top - cool right?

www.AStampAbove.com

Dimensions:

  • Designer Series Paper 2 @ 6" x 8"
  • Cut both from 3" on the short side to the bottom corner diagonally
  • Score long side at 2", 4" and 6"
  • See video for complete instructions
  • Back panel - Very Vanilla 3-5/8" x 4-5/8"
  • Back panel - Cajun Craze 3-3/4" x 4-3/4"

 

SQUEAL!!! I love this little mini milk carton - thanks to Sam Hammond for the design on the 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" box - super easy and just the right size for a piece of gourmet chocolate. Click on the video above - it's not just about the card - I show you how to make this little box too!

www.AStampAbove.com

Dimensions:

  • 4-1/2" x 7-1/2"
  • Scored on the long side at 1-1/2", 3", 4-1/2" and 6"
  • Scored on the short side at 1-1/2" and 3"
  • See video for complete instructions
  • Designer Series Paper 4 @ 1-1/4" x 1-1/4"

Joke

 

This actually happened.....They dressed the truck up with the guy tied down on the roof. The driver and passengers put on moose heads. Then they went down the I-35 Interstate................... causing 16 accidents.

Moose

Yes, they went to jail. Yes, alcohol was involved...Yes, men cannot be left alone.

Hurricane Relief

 

www.AStampAbove.com

From Stampin' Up!......

With you, we’re also trying to stay informed on the progress of Hurricane Irma; as we write this, Irma has not yet made landfall but is currently classified as a catastrophic Category 5 storm. It will almost certainly leave as much destruction in its wake as Hurricane Harvey and will affect the lives of tens of thousands of people.

As a Stampin’ Up! family, we invite you to help us give to those who are now (or will soon be) trying to rebuild their lives. From now until the end of October, Stampin’ Up! will match donations made to the American Red Cross, dollar-for-dollar, for up to $50,000. Please click here to donate.

Together, we can do incredible things! We hope you’ll join us . . . because we truly can make a difference.
