Stampin’ Up! Quick and Simple Thank You Card

It’s Friday!

It’s been a busy week, as I’m sure it has been for you, so today I have a quick and simple thank you card for you.

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then used the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut the bottom part of the card front to give a pretty scalloped edge to it.

I used the So Sweetly Stitched Dies (which are an absolute must have!) and cut out a pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Basic Gray and cut it out also with the So Sweetly Stitched Dies.  I fussy cut out a bird from the same Bird Ballad DSP to go next to it.

Finally I wrapped around some Whisper White Baker’s Twine in a bow.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! You Always Deliver Thank You Card

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!!!

2019 was a great year and I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings.  Have fun and stay safe!!

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then took another panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I cut it out full size and then moved the die down a bit and ran it through again to make the rectangle smaller.  I then matted this on Basic Gray cardstock.

I stamped the You Always Deliver Images on Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink and colored them in using Light Soft Suede (clothes, hat), Dark Soft Suede (pant stripe, shoes, bag), Smokey Slate (packages), Ivory (skin), Bronze (hair, mustache), Light Crumb Cake (dog), Dark Crumb Cake (dog spot) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I then fussy cut each image out and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink, covering the bottom words with Washi Tape so I only stamped “thank you.”

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.  Although I didn’t necessary stick with the neutral colors they provided, I did stick to neutral colors.

Stampin’ Up! SNEAK PEEK Parisian Blossoms Merci Card

I am obsessed with the Parisian Blossoms Suite in the 2020 Jan-June Mini Catalog.

It’s a big suite, including two bundles, Designer Series Paper, an embossing folder, rhinestones, and ribbon – all beautiful!!!  It’ll be available Jan 3rd!

My favorite piece of it has to be the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper.  Be sure to check out my Product Share that I’m offering for the new catalog as it includes this paper and you’ll definitely want it…and all the new Designer Series Paper for that matter.

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the new Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Next I stamped the flower image from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set in Basic Gray ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using Petal Pink (flowers), Mossy Meadow (leaves & stem), and Pool Party (a highlight around it) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I then matted this on Pool Party cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I used the new Parisian Dies to cut out the “merci” twice from Petal Pink cardstock, adhering one over the other, and I added a few Champagne Rhinestones around the flower.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I love the Snow Front Stamp Set so much because as ideal as it is for Christmas cards, it is great for all occasion cards as well!

I cut out a Whisper White circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and used the Snow Front Stamp Set to create my scene using Mossy Meadow (trees), Gray Granite (mountain), Balmy Blue (lake), Crumb Cake (deer) ink.

I cut out a scalloped circle from Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Versamark in on Balmy Blue cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I used the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut out a Mossy Meadow touch under the sentiment and lastly, I added a Linen Thread bow.
