Thanks Cuz

My sweet cuz did it again!   Showered me with some awesome goodies this past Christmas.   Using some of the cool things she got for me, I made this thank you card for her.


Of course my eyes lit up when I opened the box. Here are the fun goodies she sent.  Wowie!!!!   In the past, I made the Step-Up card but using my scoring pad.  Well woo-hoo, now it's so easy peasy with the Sizzix "Basic Step Ups" die.  This set comes with flower dies too which I used on the two panels on the right.   The flowers on the left panel are from the "Boscoe" set by Taylored Expressions which I inked up with Copics.    Do you see the teeny tiny flower pot?  That's from the "Flowers and Stems" mini die set, also by Taylored Expressions.  Now I can make all kinds of words (like THANKS) or phrases using the Sizzix "Alphanumeric" die set.   Can't wait to play with all the other goodies.    THANK YOU CUZ!!!!!

Other supplies used:
Leaf punches by Punch Bunch and EK
DP from stash
Pearls by Kaiser Craft
Stamin punch by Punch Bunch

Thanks for poppin' in for a visit and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!  Toodles.

Wow! Your cuz is always so generous and thoughtful to surprise you with such awesome and fun crafty products. I can't wait to see what you make with the rest of the products that she gave to you.

The "thank you" card that you made for her is great! I am sure she will love it. Making a step up card is sure much faster with a die. I am sure that you will have a lot of more fun making more cards with the die in the coming days.

Hi Karen!!! :) Ooooh wow!!! That's a ton of goodies for sure!! Oh I totally know how much time you'll be able to save using the die for the step card .. those things take FOREVER in a day to cut up if you're doing it with a scoreboard and everything .. because you have to measure everything out and cut this, then that .. ai ya yai!!! lol! Now you just run it right through .. and voila! ;)

You've made a BEAUUUUTIFUL card for her .. and i know she'll be so excited and happy to receive it! :)

Hope you're having a nice relaxing weekend!

Big Hugs,
Elise

Whoa! Lucky you to receive all these neat dies...gosh, I never even knew about the Sizzix step card one...really like the special thank you card you created with it. I think I better go hunt that die down too...I'm always making mistakes measuring and scoring!
