Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery-September 2023: Lighting the Way Glow in the Dark Thank You Card

Hello, thank you for visiting Theresa’s Treasures. I am Theresa, an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I am really excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with my Lighting the Way Glow in the Dark Thank You card. Today I am blogging along with very creative Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! Please be sure to see all of the inspirational projects by visiting everyone’s blog. You will need to click on the “Vote” button below to see the Gallery. Once in the Gallery you can vote for up to 5 projects.

The theme for the Gallery is “Thank You”.

We often forget those simple words “Thank you”. However, it is so very important to show appreciation to the people in your life who have helped you, supported you or inspired you. One way to express gratitude is to send a handmade thank you card. Discover the joy in making and sending a handmade card!

This Lighting the Way Glow in the Dark Thank You Card showcases the Lighting the Way Photopolymer Stamp Set and Lighting the Way Dies which are in the 2023-24 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog. The All About Autumn Designer Series Paper & the Glow In the Dark 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper are in the upcoming 2023 Stampin’ Up! Mini Holiday Catalog. The Mini Holiday Catalog goes live on September 6, 2023!

Finishing Up

  1. Now adhere the Very Vanilla stamped card piece to the inside of the Copper Clay card base.
