Here's another swap card I received by Betty Schoults - she was on a roll!!!  It's very crisp and clean!  The Timeless Talk stamp set is very popular - I love all the possibilities with this set.  Great for that vintage look and you can make birthday cards for the little ones with this tricycle - versatility is always a wonderful thing!

BE A SECRET STAMPER

Wood Blocks

 

Who loves getting handmade cards in the mail…how much fun would it be to get a couple every month???  Even more fun to get it from your SECRET STAMPER!!!!!

Here’s how it works:  

  • You need to send two (2) hand-stamped cards per month.  
  • Please send them separately, not in the same envelope.  
  • Your two cards per month can include birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. It is optional to send more than two cards a month.  
  • It is also optional to send small items, such as stamped images, papers, patterns, stamping supplies, etc. as gifts.
  • To keep it a secret, you don’t sign your name on the card – you sign it “Secret Stamper.”  Please use a post-it note or piece of paper so the card can be recycled!!!  
  • You will also use my RETURN ADDRESS - provided to you when you get your assigned Secret Stamper.
  • When you send your last card - you reveal yourself!

If you would like to join in the fun, click on the DOWNLOAD below and copy & paste the “SECRET STAMPER INFO SHEET” into a new email – fill it in and email it back to me.  Please email it to me so I don’t have to retype and put in my computer.  I’ll keep the original form for my records and email a copy to your Secret Stamper so they have some ideas for your cards.

If you have any stamping friends who are interested, please forward this to them and have them join us.  Ask them to be sure to let me know who “referred” them so I don’t match the two of you up!  This card exchange will run from:

August through December

You will reveal yourself in your last card in December.

FLIP CARD THINLITS COMING SOON!!!!

THINLITS CARD DIES

 

They've been called flip cards, flip flop cards, swing cards, and more-but they have always been a bit tricky to create. Not anymore! Our amazing new Thinlits Card Dies cut and score to create a card that flips in just one step.

Item

Description

Price

133479

Label Card Thinlits Die

$32.95

133480

Circle Card Thinlits Die

$32.95

Available August 1, 2013

There are some products you just have to see in action before you realize how much you need them, right? This is one of them! Plan to feature these dies in your events and share the video. When your customers see what they can do, they will place their orders.

These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.)

 

Screen Shot 2013-07-22 at 8.42.41 PM


 

 

With the number of dies you're getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card!

  • They would make great announcements, invitations, or Christmas cards.
  • These Thinlits Card Dies will be available at least through the 2013-2014 catalog year. 
  • The main shape in the cards (circle and label) can work with a lot of our stamp images so you can create tons of different kinds of cards using many different stamp sets. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started:

Label Card Thinlits Die (item 133479):

  • Happy Day Stamp Set (item 130294 W item 130297 C)

Circle Card Thinlits Die (item 133480):

  • Worth the Wait Stamp (item 131094 W)
  • Five-Way Flower Stamp (item 131088 W)

Both card dies pair well with:

  • Oh, Hello Stamp Set (item 131931 W item 130733 C)
  • Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (item 131341 W item 131344 C)
  • Really Good Greetings Stamp Set (item 130330 W item 130333 C)
  • Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set (item 130324 W item 130327 C)
  • These dies also work well with our new magnetic platform (item 130658) so you can place the dies exactly where you want them!
