Three Times the Plexus Thank You Note!

I have another Plexus thank you note today. For a change today, though, I didn’t use the big glass from Coffee Cafe. I used the smaller one from Mixed Drinks!

This sketch from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday was perfect.

Another Powder Pink Plexus Thank You

Here is my second card for the 100th challenge at Global Design Project. They are doing a CASE the Designer challenge. I was so inspired that I made not one but two cards for it! I showed you the first one I made yesterday.

Powder Pink Plexus Thank You Card

Stamps: Rose Wonder, Coffee Cafe, Sheltering Tree
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Archival Basic Black

Paper: Sahara Sand, Flirty Flamingo, Powder Pink, Whisper White
Other: Coffee Cups Framelits

I actually saw Brian King’s card first, and I knew I could very easily turn it into a Plexus thank you note. I used the same layout and colors and easily made the transition from wedding to Plexus. I don’t have the Marble Background stamp (though I clearly need it), so I used the leaves from Sheltering Tree to make a soft background. I also left out one white layer because my center piece was too big. This is Brian’s original card:

Powder Pink Plexus Thank You

There is a great challenge over at Global Design Project this week! For their 100th challenge they are doing a CASE the Designer challenge. I was so inspired that I made not one but two cards for it! I will show you the first one today and the second one tomorrow.

Powder Pink Plexus Card by Yapha

Stamps: Rose Wonder, Coffee Cafe, Lemon Zest
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake

Paper: Powder Pink, Whisper White
Other: Coffee Cups Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits

As soon as I saw Allison Okimitsu’s card, I knew I could very easily turn it into a Plexus thank you note. I used the same layout and colors and easily made the transition from Christmas to Plexus. I don’t sew on cards, but I did paper pierce around the edges. This is Allison’s original card.

Not Quite Pink Plexus Thank You Note

It’s Day 4 in my Plexus thank you note series. Some of you have asked about the Plexus Leaders’ Retreat contest. Unlike the former Stampin’ Up Leadership conference (which I was fortunate enough to go to several years back), you cannot buy a ticket to Leaders’ Retreat. It must be earned during the months of June, July, & August. You need a certain amount of points to secure a spot, and more points earn extra perks. Points are based on sales totals for each month, new customers, and new downline. I am super excited to have earned a spot. It will be my first time going!

Stamps: Coffee Cafe, Endless Thanks (ret.)
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay
Paper: Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Coffee Cafe DSP, Motley Monsters DSP (ret.)
Other: Coffee Cup Framelits

I used the great color combination from The Paper Players.

Thank You Card in Plexus Brights

Whoo hoo!! I am so excited to announce that I have earned a spot at Plexus Leaders’ Retreat! Is there any better feeling than setting a goal, working hard for it all summer, and seeing it come to fruition? Now I really need to get cracking on making these thank you cards and sending them out. I could not have achieved these goal without a bunch of people believing in me, and I am grateful to every single one. Here is today’s Plexus thank you card. No pink drink on this one, just the bright Plexus colors.

Bright Plexus Thank You by Yapha

Stamps: So Very Much (ret.)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Berry Burst, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Berry Burst, Basic Black, Glossy White
Other: Sponges

I used the great color palette from Sunday Stamps (though I’m thinking Real Red might have been a better choice than Berry Burst).

Another Plexus Thank You Card

I’m still waiting on that last order to push me over into earning Plexus Leaders’ Retreat. I’m not worried — I am confident that it will happen today or tomorrow. (Will it be you?) Of course I will need to send thank you notes to all of the people who helped me achieve this goal, so over the next few days I will be showing you a variety of Plexus “pink drink” themed thank you notes. I started yesterday, if you missed that one. Here is today’s:

Plexus Thank You Card

I am super excited to announce that I am one sale away from earning Plexus Leaders’ Retreat! This was the goal I set out for myself at the beginning of the summer, and I am super excited to see it about to happen. Of course I need to send thank you notes to the people who helped me achieve this goal, and of course I needed to stamp them myself, so over the next few days I will be showing you a variety of Plexus “pink drink” themed thank you notes.

Live with Zest!

We just did a huge, massive, week-long clean out of our storage shed, so I rewarded myself with a little time in the stamp room. (Which also is undergoing a clean out. You can help me out by taking a look at my retired stamps & ribbon for sale here.)  The stamp I used for the sentiment actually says, “Live IT with Zest,” but I used markers to leave the “IT” off so it would make more sense.

Live with Zest Plexus Card by Yapha

Stamps: Lemon Zest, Coffee Cafe
Ink: Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist
Paper: Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Foil Frenzy DSP
Other: Coffee Cups Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Ovals Collection Framelits (ret.)

I used the colors from Fab Friday and the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

If you are wondering what deliciousness is in my cup, of course it is Plexus Slim! See the picture below for my inspiration!

Berry Burst for Inky Friends In Color Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inky Friends In Color Blog Hop! (If it looks familiar, it’s because it is the same group of stampers who used to be on Stampin’ Addicts. Life changes. We grow and evolve.) You may have just arrived from Tanya’s Blog, or if you are going backwards from Sara’s Blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click this link to take you to the master list.

I am excited to feature Berry Burst, my favorite of the new In Colors. I love this new deep pink. It’s a little richer than Melon Mambo, for a more mature look. My first card uses only Berry Burst ink, stamped off to make the different shades.

Stamps: Balloon Celebration

Berry Burst also pairs really well with other colors. For my second card I used the bright and fun color challenge over at Fab Friday.

My third card uses a more elegant color combination. See how versatile Berry Burst is?

Stamps: Garden in Bloom, Stylized Birthday
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Berry Burst, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Whisper White

For my final card, of course I had to make a Plexus card! Did you think that I would pass up this opportunity? It’s why I got this color in the first place!

Stamp Review Crew: Coffee Cafe Edition

It’s time for another  Stamp Review Crew blog hop! This time we are featuring the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set. You may have just arrived from Tanya Boser’s Blog, or if you are going backwards from Dawn Tidd’s Blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click the link to the Stamp Review Crew to take you to the master list.

I bought this set because I love coffee, but in the last couple months I have actually stopped drinking coffee in the morning! I gave it up when I went off sugar for three weeks, because I really only like my coffee with lots of flavored creamer in it. Don’t get me wrong, I still have it from time to time. It’s just more of a treat now than an every day occurrence. Anyway, I was super glad to see that this stamp set was flexible enough to use for things other than coffee as well. Like cupcakes, for example.

Cupcakes with Coffee Cafe by Yapha

Stamps: Coffee Cafe
Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, Powder Pink
Paper: Soft Sky, Powder Pink, Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper
Other: Coffee Cups Framelits

Thank you for hopping with us today! Your next stop is over at Dawn Tidd’s Blog. I can’t wait to see what she made!
