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.

Thank You|Everyday Script|Spring Botanicals

This is such a bright and cheerful card.  I love these colors together.

Thank You

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock or sticky note stamp the flower image from the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544) stamp set.  You will then cut it out on the outline of the stamp to make a mask.

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock stamp the same image in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) ink.  Using the Summer Days from the Rich Sorbets PanPastels (JM-0082) add color to the flower using the Journey Sofft Tools (JM-0098).  Then add the mask on to each flower when stamping the leaves in Kiwi Slice (IP-0024) ink.  The other leaves, feather and arrow, you will stamp in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041).

Stamp Thank You from the Everyday Script (SS-0543) stamp set in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) and cut it out using the coordinating die (DI-0406). [This set comes in a bundle as well].

Put Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) on an acrylic block and using the Blending Brush (TO-0097) add the Sparkle Silk to the feathers, arrows and leaves.

ThankYou2

Cut Deco Strips (AC-0285) and affix in a “V” pattern in the center of the stamped panel.  Loop the Journey Twine (AC-0004) and staple in place using the Journey Days Stapler (TO-0118) with Brush Silver Staples (TO-0120).  

Using Foam Squares (AD-0085) pop up the Thank you sentiment over the looped Journey Twine Black Licorice (AC-0004).  Add some Magical Candy Drops (AC-0263) and Silver Silk (IP-0090).  Pop up this panel onto a Lemon Drop (CS-0018) card base.

ThankYou3

Spring Botanicals Card Set

I am loving the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544) stamp set.  I don’t know how to explain it other than to say that the stamped images have so much depth that you would think that it was two step or triple step stamping.  But it is really just one step stamping!

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 1

I decided to make several different cards with different sayings and used the ink colors for the card bases for these cards.  On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, I stamped the sentiments in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  The sentiments came from Everyday Script (SS-0543) and Bird Melody (SS-0496).

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 4 copy

Then I stamped various images from the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544) stamp set in the following inks:  Summer Days (IP-0042), Pool Play (IP-0051), Bubble Gum (IP-0058) and Lavender Fusion (IP-0036).

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 3

These panels were then adhered to the card bases using Easy Glide (AD-0081).  I used Summer Days (CS-0033), Pool Play (CS-0092), Bubble Gum (CS-0099) and Lavender Fusion (CS-0017) for the card bases.  Super easy, super quick and really gorgeous.  A set of these would make a wonderful hand-made gift for someone.  Why not make a couple sets so that you have them on hand.

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 2

With Fun Stampers Journey color palette of inks and coordinating cardstock, the color combinations are endless.

Spring Botanicals Card Pack 1

There are several stamp sets just like this one in the Bloom This Way Mini Trends Catalog (CL-0030).  I love this new stamp design.  So much fun!

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

Thank You | Everyday Script

I have been working on customer Thank You cards.  I thought what better way to brighten their day, especially if they are experiencing the winter snow and cold as I am, than with Spring Botanicals.

Thank You Panpastels

On a piece from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051), I stamped the Thank You sentiment from Everyday Script (SS-0543) in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  I used Fresh Forest (IP-0013) and Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink to stamp some of the leaf images from the Spring Botanicals Bundle (BD-0343) onto this piece as well.  I then adhered a strip of the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) onto a strip of Mirror Gold (CS-0136). 

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock, I stamped one of the floral images from the Spring Botanicals Bundle (BD-0343) in Sweet Berry (IP-IP-0029) ink and cut it out using the coordinating die. Using the Rich Sorbets (JM-0082) Pan Pastels, I applied it to the darker parts of the flower. This really adds a lot of dimension.  I popped this piece up using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  A Sparkle Drop (AC-0022) was added to the center.

Thank You Panpastels 2

The images from the Spring Botancials (BD-0343) bundle are great on their own but adding the PanPastels to the darker parts of these images really helps to bring it over the top.

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

Happy Crafting!

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?

Give Thanks 2
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.

Give Thanks 1
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!!
