Friends of SUBA - June Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to today's Blog Hop with Friends of SUBA, Simply Unique Business Angels, featuring a Masculine theme.

I'm busy writing checklists for my fabulous holiday coming up this summer.  This journey is our bucket list destination, earning my very first Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip on an Alaskan Cruise.  To say I'm excited is an understatement !

Something I am planning to do is to give away Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) cards to people I meet along the way, who give a great service or have helped us in some way.  Staff at the various airports, hotels and cruise ship might receive one of my little Thank You cards, pre-written and ready to hand over, when I think someone has 'gone the extra mile'.

For todays 'hop' I decided to share some for the 'men' that I hope will make our holiday of a lifetime, a great experience.  In order to distinguish whether card is a male or female theme, I am have decorated the envelope to coordinated with the colourings of the card inside.
The Thank You Thinlits Die #146832 was one of the first items to be added to my Wishlist.  I love the Happy Birthday one and knew this would be equally as useful. 
I have used the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper #146338 on all of these cards.
Stampin' Up! make it so much easier to have beautifully created cards with their Designer Series Papers coordinating with cardstock colours.  Adding packs of cardstock in three of the most prominent colours within the DSP pack is even better.

Adding a little texture today, is the beautiful Subtle Textured Embossing Folder #143706.  I totally missed this in the catalogue until someone pointed it out, featured at the bottom right corner on page p21 in the new Annual Catalogue.
Each Thank You Diecut image was embossed with this texture.  Here is a close up for you to see in more detail ……
Be sure that these two Big Shot products will be appearing again later this week, when I share some of the cards I'm creating for the ladies who I'm hoping will give us a great holiday experience.

I hope you have enjoyed the projects I've shared with you today and hope to see you back again soon.

  1. Congratulations on the incentive trip Sandra - I'm sure you will have an amazing time ! I'd not thought about the Nature's DSP in a masculine way but these RAK cards are a great idea xx


Thank you for your comments, I really appreciate hearing from you, x
