Trash to Treasure – Lilly Pulitzer Advertisement into 3 Encouragement Cards

lilly-gift-resort-2016

I got this Lilly Pulitzer mailing (not quite a catalog) a few weeks ago. I love Lilly Pulitzer artwork! I am on their mailing list because I purchase one planner a year, to give as a gift.

Every page of this thing had artwork or color that inspired me. So, I took it apart, and cut it into pieces.

Many Thanks Card

a-million-thanks

I made this for something sweet and generous that Offspring3 did for me and Offspring2.

I mounted all of the different thank you stamps on an old Martha Stewart clear stamp block and stamped them all at one time. I did have to stamp the block a second time, to cover the length of my paper.

Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (heart), embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum, twine – MarkerPop.
