Thank You | Romantic Journey Prints

I am loving the Romantic Journey Prints paper (PP-0045). So many pretty designs!!!

I wanted to make a few Thank You cards to have on hand.  So I pulled out the Romantic Journey Prints paper (PP-0045) and the Must Have Sentiments (SS-0501) stamp set and well let’s just say that one thing led to another and I ended up making more than a few!!(ha, ha).

Thank you Romantic Journey Prints
Love this paper!!!

The cardstock I used was Denim Days (CS-0082), Butter Cream (CS-0006) and Romantic Journey Prints (PP-0045).  I inked up all the sentiments from the Must Have Sentiments (SS-0501) in Denim Days (IP-0010) ink.

Thank you Romantic Journey Prints 5
I used the Must Have Sentiments for the inside as well.  This is a great stamp set.

These were quick and easy to make. Great to have on hand and would also make a great gift set.

Thank you Romantic Journey Prints 4

Bountiful Thanks

I am a firm believer in letting others know how thankful I am.  Whether it is something that they have helped me out with,  a gift or sometimes just giving someone a Thank You card for just being them.  The fall is a great time of year to make a bunch of Thank You cards to have on-hand.  Why?  Because nature is so beautiful this time of year with all the wonderful colors –  I love being able to incorporate those colors in my cards.

Bountiful Thanks 2
Love the fall colors


I used images from the Bountiful Thanks (SS-0531), Pumpkin Kisses (SS-0526) and Hello Fall (SS-0450) [there are coordinating dies available for the Hello Fall and a bundle is also available] and stamped them in the following inks:  Orange Creamsicle (IP-0024), Pineapple Smoothie (IP-0014), Green Olive (IP-0072) and Pumpkin Bread (IP-0057) onto a piece of Banana Cream (CS-0087) cardstock. The words – Bountiful Thanks were stamped in Dark Roast (IP-0050) ink.

I adhered a piece of Corrugated Cardstock (ST-0124) onto the bottom of the Banana Cream piece.  I am in love with our corrugated paper.  It is so easy to work with and it is a thin corrugated rather than a thick corrugated (some are too thick that they make your card really bulky –  this is high quality card stock but not bulky – I hope that makes sense).Bountiful Thanks 1

I then adhered a piece of Pumpkin Patch Ribbon (AC-0334) [I just love this ribbon, the color, the size, it is so easy to work with to make bows – I could go on but I’ll stop now].

The Banana Cream panel was added onto a piece of Orange Creamsicle (CS-0024) cardstock and then adhered to a Cocoa Powder (CS-0008) card base.

I added some of our Rainbow Drops (AC-0178) to the flowers using Glue Dots (AC-0083).

Bountiful Thanks 3
There are so many colors and sizes in our Rainbow Drops.

I know it is not official Fall yet but how can you resist this card with this wonderful saying.  It can be used for so many things, I have been having fun creating with the Hello Fall Bundle (BD-0299) and thought I would make some Thank You cards to have on hand.  I have found that you can never have too many Thank You cards on hand.  I know I go through a lot of them.  What about you?

I love this saying from the Pumpkin Kisses Stamp Set.

The stamp sets I used were the Hello Fall Bundle (BD-0299).  I have used this stamp set before on a previous post.  It is just so versatile and a great add to your stash.  The saying came from the Pumpkin Kisses stamp set (SS-00526).  I love the sayings in this set and can see me using them on my scrapbook pages too.  The sentiment was stamped in Dark Roast (IP-0050) ink onto Banana Cream (CS-0087) cardstock.  I find I am using the Banana Cream cardstock more and more especially for fall cards.

I embossed the Maple leaf image from the Hello Fall Bundle using our Gold Embossing Powder (IP-0101) on Pomegranate Splash cardstock (CS-0025).  Then cut it out with the coordinating dies using the Amaze Machine (TO-0134).  I love this machine, compact and it gets the job done.  (Plus I love the green!!).

I stamped the background leaf image in Green Olive ink (IP-0072). Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Cranberry Bliss Silk (IP-0094) were added to for extra interest.  Since the Cranberry Bliss Silk is a little thicker than the Gold Silk, it does add texture to your card.  I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292) elements (they come in Silver as well).  And there are various sizes in the pack.  I am going to have to stock up on these since I know I will be using them on my holiday cards as well.

I love the Fall colors on this card.

I took the Banana Cream panel and attached it to a piece of Dark Roast (CS-0091) cardstock before adhering it to my Pomegrante Splash (CS-0025) card base.

I used the Crease Tool (TO-0040) to shape the Maple Leaf (not sure it shows up in the photo) and then popped it up using Foam Squares (AD-0085) .  Added a bow using Natural Twine (AC-0005) and some Glue Dots (AD-0111).

I also like to decorate my envelopes.  I think it gives a nice touch and who doesn’t like happy mail!!

I love our Oatmeal Cookie A2 envelopes (ST-0119)

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and that it has inspired you to make some Fall cards even if it isn’t officially Fall yet.

Fall is in the Air/Thank You

The air is starting to get a little cooler these days and Fall will be here before you know it.  So, I thought I would share an idea for a Fall Thank You card with you.

I used the Hello Fall Stamp Set (SS-0450) (this is a really nice set to have in your stash plus, there are matching dies available) and stamped some of the images in the following inks:  Dark Roast (IP-0050), Green Olive (IP-0072), Pumpkin Break (IP-0057), and Raspberry Berry (IP-0056).  The Thank You sentiment came from the Must Have Sentiments Stamp Set (SS-0501) (this is definitely a stamp set to have in your stash, very versatile).

Fall Thank You
I just love these fall colors!

The cardstock I used was Raspberry Berry (CS-0097), Pumpkin Bread (CS-0098), Hazelnut Blend (CS-0013) and Banana Cream (CS-0087).  The Banana Cream really complimented the other cardstock nicely.

I added some Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Cranberry Bliss Silk (IP-0094).  I love having our silks on hand because sometimes your card just needs an extra little something without being too over powering and they fit the bill.  I use them often and they have lasted me a long time. They really go a long way.

As a final touch, I added a bow using our Natural Twine (AC-0005) and our Glue Dots (AC-0083).

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

Happy Fall Crafting!!!

Thank You/Flower Swirls

I am loving our daubers!!!  I have been using them a lot lately and just love how smooth you can work our inks on the cardstock.  It is a great way to add color especially if you don’t have the time to detail color your inked image.

Thank You
Flower Swirls (SS-0454)

Moving your dauber in a circular motion, color 4 different areas on your Whip Cream Cardstock (CS-0040) using Rich Coral Ink (IP-0052).  Be sure to have some darker and lighter spots.  Remember nature is not perfect (that’s what makes it so beautiful) and by varying the shades of color you can give the illusion of sunlight or shade on the flower which helps to give it some dimension.

Then stamp (over the Rich Coral circles you created) the large and medium flower swirl once using Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041).  The smaller flower swirl, you will stamp twice.

Repeat the above process on the large and small leaf 3 times each on Whip Cream Cardstock using a combination of Sweet Pear and Lemon Grass ink to give the leaves dimension just like the flowers.

You can either detail cut around the flowers and leaves or use the die that is part of the bundle.

Stamp the Thank You sentiment on the lower portion of the Whip Cream panel.  Adhere the Sweet Pear strip and pop up the Whip Cream panel onto the card base.  Pop up the flowers onto the card base as above.

Finish the card off by adding some Silver Silk and Sparkle Silk.  I love how our silks really finish off the card!  (And if you ever make a crafting oops, they are a great way to cover it up!)

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

Happy Silver and Sparkle Silking!!!
