Thank You | Simply Gold

I love our Journey Tape but don’t use it nearly enough.  I tend to hoard it because I love how pretty it is.  This is a great card option for those that don’t like to do a lot of stamping on their cards.

Thank You Gold Tape copy

On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel, I attached Simply Gold Journey Tape (AC-0294) at an angle. The  Thank You stamp was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink and comes from the Embroidered Greetings (SS-0507) stamp set.  [I love the stitching detail on this stamp – so unique].

Thank You Gold Tape2

This panel was adhered to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) panel before being adhered to a Whip Cream card base.

The inside saying was stamped in Black Licorice ink and comes from the Celebrate Everything stamp set (SS-0579). 

Thank You Gold Tape3

I love how this card turned out.

Here are the measurements:
Whip Cream card base = 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 and another piece cut to 3 3/4 x 5
Black Licorice = 4 x 5 1/4

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

More Fun with PanPastels/Thinking of You

I have been having lots of fun over the last few weeks working with the PanPastels.  They are so fun and easy to color your stamped images or background.  I will admit that at first I was a little hesitant but I really do love how easy they are to work with.

I used a piece of Lavender Fusion Cardstock (CS-0017).  I cut a piece of River Stone cardstock (CS-0034) at 5 1/4″ x 4″.  The Whip Cream card panel (CS-0040) is cut at 5″ x 3 3/4″.

Thnking of You (2) Panpastels
Love coloring with PanPastels!!!


Using the Pretty Petals Stamp Set (SS-0455) (reminder this is a host exclusive for order er $300-$599 ).  I stamped some of the images in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  I colored in those images using Pretty Pansy from the Rich Sorbets PanPastels (JM-0082) and also Pretty Amethyst from the Confectionary Days PanPastels (JM-0079).  The sentiment came from the Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set (SS-0507) (can I just say I love this stamp set, love how unique the font is) and I stamped it using Black Licorice Ink.

I then added some Silver Silk (IP-0090) and some Journey Celebration Sequins (AC-0115).  (I have used these on a multitude of cards and haven’t event put a dent in the container yet, you get a ton!!).  I added some Cut Rhinestones (AC-0023) to the centers of the flowers and then added Journey Glaze(AD-0003) on the sentiment.

Hope you give our PanPastels a try.  You can order from my on-line store ( or click on the shopping tab above), 24/7.  I would love to hear from  you on how you like them.  I appreciate all those who follow me and if you never want to miss a post be sure to subscribe to my blog and follow me on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.

Thinking of You (PanPastels)

I love our PanPastels.  They are so easy to work with and so many ways to use them.

For today’s card I used a piece of Whip Cream Card Stock (CS-0040) cut to 5″ x 3 3/4″.  I used the Pretty Pansy pot from the Rich Sorbets Panpastels (JM-0085).  I started at the bottom of the Whip Cream Card Stock and sponged on the Pretty Pansy color and the worked it up toward the top.  You want the bottom to be darker and the top to be lighter.  I used the Colorless Blender (JM-0095) so smooth out the transition.

Journey Glaze added to the sentiment


I used Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) to stamp the sentiment Thinking of You that comes from the Embroidered Greetings (SS-0507) stamp set.  I also stamped some of the images in Black Licorice Ink from the Pretty Petals (SS-0455) stamp set (this stamp set is a host exclusive with a $300 – $599 order – there is a matching die set to match that is a host exclusive as well).

I took an eraser (I used a Hi Polymer Eraser by Pentel, it worked great), to remove some of the PanPastels in the flower area.  (That is the great thing about PanPastels, you can fix your mistakes!).

You don’t have to, but I lightly sprayed the panel with aerosol hairspray to set the PanPastels a little bit more before using Easy Glide (AD-0081) to adhere it to the Black Licorice (CS-0003) panel that was cut at 5 1/4″  x 4″.  The Black Licorice panel was then adhered to a Deep Lilac (CS-0096) card base cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ .

Thinking of You Panpastels without glaze
Without Journey Glaze added to the sentiment.


I finished off the card by adding some Silver Silk (IP-0090) and Journey Sequins Special Celebration (AC-0115).  I added a Cut Rhinestone (AC-0023) to the center of the big flower and then applied Journey Glaze (AD-0003) to the sentiment.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
