About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Hello! Welcome to the Go For Greece Blog Hop! Go For Greece is a training group put on by the lovely Kylie Bertucci, and we are all building our Stampin’ Up! businesses. Thank you for your support as I build mine! Today is our last Go For Greece Blog Hop, as the training group ends at the end of the month. The theme is kind of… what have you taken away from the training group this year, and how do you feel? Well, as you’ll see from the card, I feel grateful to be in such a wonderful group with so much meaningful training and support, and the main thing I take away from the training is Consistency. .Stampin' Up! handmade thank you Thanksgiving card using Warm Hearted host stamp set, Country Lane paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My card starts with a Balmy Blue card base. I absolutely love this new blue. Then I added a piece of Country Lane designer series paper, which I first spritzed with water, then crumpled into a ball, then straightened back out. I glued it to the card base but left the edges free.

The main panel is a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. The stamp I used for the sentiment is from the Warm Hearted host stamp set (you can get this FREE with Stampin’ Rewards on an order of $150 or more). I put the cardstock in the Stamparatus, placed the stamp near the top of the cardstock, attached it to the Stamparatus plate (by closing the Stamparatus) then stamped it in Old Olive. I used the hinge-step technique and stepped the sentiment down one hinge level, inked the stamp again, stamped again, then repeated the process two more times. I trimmed the cardstock down to size, then used one of the Stitched Labels framelits to make the little cross-stitch marks at the bottom of the panel. I added a skinny mat behind the stamped piece (Old Olive). Then I tied a piece of Mossy Meadow Cotton Twine (from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine) around the panel, added a copper piece from the Leaves Trinkets, and attached the panel to the card with Dimensionals.

Hey, Sarah, a great card and a courageous move scrunching the DSP up,it sure gives the card depth and dimension. Wow the size of the font Thanks. It looks amazing how the T’s sit on top of each other. Great work
