Welcome to the Team

By | January 27, 2020

Hi there

On top of making birthday cards for all the staff at work I’ve decided to make ‘welcome’ cards for new staff members. We’ve already had a couple of new starts this year and have another 3 starting tomorrow.

When the new catalogue came out last year I spotted the set ‘Welcome to the Team’ stamp set and bought it. It’s been sitting on my shelf uninked but that has all changed. Here are the first cards I created – I look forward to having some fun with this set.

The card mat is Balmy Blue and I’ve used two new dies from the Stitched So Sweetly die set. The larger one is Night of Navy and then the smaller one is Whisper White. I love how these ‘nest’ inside each other. The image was stamped in Memento Black and then the chair was coloured in with our Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used Granny Apple Green for the seat, Basic Black for the arms and then Smoky Slate for everything else.

I love this caption and I hope it makes our new staff members feel right at home. I then write a personalised message to each new employee welcoming them to the team.

Here are the other colour combos I made. I’ll have to get cracking and make another batch as we have more staff starting in a couple of months.

Granny Apple Green stitched mat, Night of Navy chair
Granny Apple Green stitched mat, Dark Poppy Parade chair
Crushed Curry stitched mat, Light Poppy Parade chair
Pineapple Punch mat, Rich Razzleberry stitched mat, Dark Poppy Parade chair
Flirty Flamingo mat, Soft Suede stitched mat, Merry Merlot chair

When I got to creating the colour combo for the above card I realised we don’t have a Merry Merlot Stampin’ Blend so I used the Stampin’ Write Marker instead 🙂

Well I’d better head off to bed as tomorrow will be a busy one in the office. Until next time …
