Mailable Monday...Just Kidding

Hi stampers!  It's Monday again, how does that keep happening?????  So the card I have today is pretty much the opposite of a mailable card :-)  Well you could mail it but it would take a bubble envelope....or do like I do with a lot of my "fancy" cards...I stick them in packages that I'm already mailing as an extra surprise then problem solved, ha!

Anyway, I'm totally obsessed with the pop-up posies kit for so many reasons!  First, the flowers of course are gorgeous.  And then there are those cute little embossed kraft colored tags!  We totally need an embosslit to cut these puppies out!  Third, the just for you stamp is just adorable!  And then finally, I love that you can totally do so many more things with the kit than just make tags out of it!  I'm loving making cards with it!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Pop-up posies kit
Ink:  Crumb cake, versamark
Paper:  Crumb cake, sycamore street DSP (SAB)
Accessories:  Pop-up posies kit, SAB ribbon & brad back, summer starfruit stitched satin ribbon, pool party embossing powder

It's just so yummy!  I LOVE these colors and the pool party embossing powder!!!!  And of course that's my favorite pattern from the SAB DSP!  And isn't that brad pretty in the center of the flower there?  It's in the kit!  And making the flower is super easy.  I just took 10 of the flowers and stacked them up then poked a hole and inserted the brad.  After that I just kind of fluffed up and bent up some of the petals.  Ta-da!

Make sure to pick up a couple of the kits today!  And don't forget it's the last week for Sale-A-Bration! Make sure to get your freebies by Friday because then they are gone FOR-EV-ER!  Gasp!!!!!

Happy stamping!

  1. Fab color combo and I love how the Pool Party embossed sentiment just pops off of the Crumb Cake. VERY pretty!

  3. Mindy,
    I have found that the cards I make that have brads and ribbon bows that don't lie flat ate still mailable if you add a $.20 stamp to the envelope in addition to a first class stamp. I know it could add up, but I want to send the cards that have all that jazzy stuff! 😄 The post office never hastles me if I add the extra stamp. By the way, I'm LOVING this card! Too cute!

    1. Yes, I'm aware that most of my cards can be mailed with extra postage but I like having ones that don't need that ready to go. And my PO is very picky. Some aren't as strict as ours. Thanks!
