A Note of Thanks….

So I needed to make some 3 x 3 Note cards and was inspired by a card a saw on Pinterest by Tracy May – so these are what I came up with!

Love ALL the color combos and how extremely FAST these were to make! The Butterfly punch is retired but you can use the Butterflies Thinlits also.

I used the Work of Art, Swirly Bird and Thankful Thoughts stamp set all by Stampin’ Up!  Want to know how I made them please ask!

As always – Thanks for stopping by and…

Happy Stampin,

Of course let’s not forget the New 2017-2019 In-Colors!!

Fresh Fig
Lemon Lime Twist

Love how these cards showcase the New In-Colors.

Love Life Card

I have anotheLove Life Cardr quick share before I call it a night!   I don’t know what it was about this Stamp set but I really like it!

Maybe it’s because of the Lemon. Being that my maiden name was “Limon”.  I don’t know BUT I just knew I had to have it!

Here is the first card I made using this set that you can get FREE only during Stampin’ Up!s Sale-A-Bration with a $50.00 order. Ending March 31st 2015!

I also used the Blendabilities for the background on this card!  If you have any questions please feel free to comment or email me yvonne@yvonnesstampingplace.com.  Thanks for stopping by and as always….
