Celebrating Ree, My New Recruit!

I really should have thought to take a photo of Ree to post here. Ree Nathan is a friend and talented stamper who I first got to know as both of my girls chorus teacher. She is a wonderful, sweet woman who just retired from ( I hope I get this right), over 35 years of teaching. She is amazingly organized and has so many wonderful ideas to share with the stamping world. Here is the matching Quilted Celebrations gift set I made to congratulate her on her retirement and new adventure in teaching as a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator. It is my spin on the quilted card idea that I have been seeing a lot of lately, only thinking outside the box [not just using squares].

Paper: Stampin' Up! Bella Birds, Blush Blossom CS; Whisper White CS & Chocolate Chip CS
Stamps: Wonderful Words
Punches/Dies: Boho Blossoms; Scallop Border; Eyelet Border; Sizzix Big Kick (or Big Shot) with Circles die [used for Shabby Chic flowers]
Other: Bashful Blue Taffeta ribbon, soft subtles brads & paper trimmer
Ashesives: Glue Arts High Tac with Glue Glider™ Pro & Ribbon Adhesive
