If you’re like me, you always need a bunch of thank you cards. I like to thank people who support my small business. And, I believe it’s important to communicate my gratitude with a hand-written note. I love that Stampin’ Up!’s offers such a wide variety of rubber stamps, ink, paper, and other products to create beautiful handmade greeting cards.
In this post, I offer a free tutorial on creating a hand-stamped greeting card using Stampin’ Up!’s True Love Designer Series Paper, the Blending Brushes, Daisy Lane stamp set, Medium Daisy Punch, Here’s a Card stamp set, and the heat embossing technique. I’ve also included a video showing a variety of ways to use Stampin’ Up!’s Blending Brushes.
