Thank you card

Stampin’ Up! Seascape Thanks

Hello and welcome to my blog. We have had family visiting for several days, some of whom we have not seen in person since last August! Needless to say – my focus was on them… it was awesome BTW…

My card today is a thank you card featuring a couple of new products: the Seascape bundle and the Ombre Specialty DSP. Oh my, the DSP is just sparkly and variable in shade and easy on the eye :). And the seahorse in the dies ( Sea Life Dies) is beautiful, as is the coral. There are other dies in the set just as stunning, but these are what I used for this card.

Seascape Thanks.1

I began with a Balmy Blue panel that I ran through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I used the wonderful Blending Brush to add some depth to this textured surface, begging with the lightest color to darker shades. By doing this, there is no need to change to a different Blending Brush. My colors were Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight and Pacific Point, with the lighter colors at the top and getting darker as I moved down the panel. I next stamped the ‘sand’ in Crumb Cake ink at the bottom, then seaweed in both Garden Green and Old Olive inks. I then die cut the two shapes from the Ombre Specialty DSP, the coral in Mango Melody and the Seahorse in Night of Navy. It’s possible to see the shading more especially on the Seahorse in the photos. I added the seahorse with liquid glue, leaving the tail a bit loose so it could grasp a bit of the coral to keep itself from floating away:) The coral is added with mini dimensionals. The sentiment is from this same Seascape bundle and is stamped in Night of Navy ink on a Very Vanilla strip. Before stamping, I used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to create the one end. The sentiment is added with dimensionals, then Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for the Seahorse eye and near the sentiment banner. This completed front panel was adhered to Crumb Cake with liquid glue, then dimensionals on the back of that to attach to the Night of Navy card base. And the card front was done!

Seascape Thanks.2

For the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink, then the bubbles in Night of Navy ink. The fish was stamped in Crumb Cake ink, then colored just a bit with the Pumpkin Pie Blends. This was adhered with liquid glue to a Crumb Cake piece, then right into the inside of the card n- and voila!

For the Very Vanilla envelope I chose the three small fishies to stamp in Pacific Point ink (stamped off once), then the bubbles in Balmy Blue ink. For the flap I pulled out the Whale of a Time 6×6 DSP (retiring end of Jun), adhered it with liquid glue and trimmed to fit. And bingo – this card is ready! Card cuts are listed at the bottoms of this post.

Products for todays project are from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. They may be found in the list below. I’ve made it easy for you to simply ‘add all to cart’. If I can help you in any way to order these items, or others, please give me a holler.

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack, Thanks

Hello! Happy weekend! As a matter of fact, it is MEMORIAL DAY weekend. If you have served in the military ~ or are part of a military family, thank you for your service. It is an honor to serve our country: thank you, thank.

Today’s card COULD be a thank you to a woman in the service. Honestly I hadn’t thought of that when I made it, but I like the idea. The card front is from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and I embellished it with ribbon and a few butterflies and the sentiment of ‘thanks’. Let me give you a bit more detail.

Hand-Penned Thanks

This is probably my favorite in the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack. I could use a whole pack of this design :O) I cut it down to 4 x 5 1/2 and mounted it on a Highland Heather panel just slightly larger (4 1/8 x 5 5/8). I then wrapped the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, secured it in back with Seal+ then added another short length to tie a knot. The knot has a glue dot under it to hold it in place. The card called for more ~ so I obliged by pulling out the Brilliant Wings Dies: the larger butterfly is die cut from Basic Black card stock and the two smaller are from Pool Party. The larger butterfly was added with a thin line of liquid glue down it’s body, while the smaller ones were attached with glue dots. I then stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink from the Hand-Penned Petal stamp set. I added dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front and voila.

Hand-Penned Thanks

For the inside, I randomly stamped the flowers in Fresh Freesia using two different floral sizes from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set on a Basic White panel 4 x 5 1/4. I added the two sizes of leaves from the same stamp set in stamped-off Garden Green (the lighter greens were stamped, then stamped again without re-inking). I then took a Micron pen and added some detail to the flowers & leaves. The softness of the colors and the added pen makes it look very much like a pen & ink painting. Love it! I mounted it on a slightly larger piece of Pool Party card stock to bring in the color of the card base (4 1/8 x 5 3/8) with liquid glue then right into the inside of the card with more liquid glue. I use liquid glue a lot, cuz I prefer the wiggle room it provides if I don’t get it perfect at first.

The envelope if from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes – oh – and the card base is as well. Gosh, I don’t think I mentioned that… well now I did and now you know. No secrets here 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Little Card, Big Thanks

Mixing different stamp sets to create a card is just plain invigorating! I’ve been attending a virtual convention the past couple of days and wanted to create some thank you cards for the officers being installed and the outgoing president. I chose to play with two NEW stamp sets (available May 4)… Quiet Moments and Flowers of Friendship. I wanted something not too fussy and not big either. The Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes are the perfect size – 3 1/2 x 5! Here is the card and the coordinating envelope – and I made several.

Little Card, Big Thanks

I stamped the floral bouquet from Quiet Moments stamp set in Memento Black ink on the note card. I then stamped the word stamp in Smoky Slate ink – also from Quiet Moments stamp set. I stamped the sentiment from Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Pale Papaya ink – one of the NEW 2021-2023 In Colors on Basic White card stock. (I cut three strips 1 1/4 x 4 1/4 in order to get two punched sentiments from one strip.) I then punched them using the Label Me Fancy Punch. I added three Genial Gems (NEW & available May 4) to each sentiment banner. I wanted a background for this banner & chose to punch more banners from Smoky Slate card stock, cut them in half and adhered them equally behind the stamped banner. Because I wanted just a bit more color, I chose to cut lengths of Woven Ribbon in Pale Papaya (yep – NEW & available May 4) and adhere that to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. The banner went over that with dimensionals – and voila, the card was done!

For the envelope I chose to stamp the single flower from Quiet Moments stamp set in Memento Black ink and color it with the Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends plus Cinnamon Cider Blends for the centers of the flower. This was a fun, simple project that I can send in Monday’s mail to say thank you to some wonderful women.

I hope you like the cards. They were quick and easy and sometimes we need that. Only a couple of these products can be purchased today and I’ll put them in the product list – others will be available May 4, just two days from now. These Note Cards are so handy to have available!

    Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Thanks

    Prized Peony is such a beautiful stamp set and it is carrying over, as are the coordinating Peony Dies – just not as a bundle. I also used on today’s card the Ornate Thanks Dies and the Ornate Frames Dies – both of which are carrying over – yay! Let’s look at this card.

    Prized Peony Thanks – #1

    This is such an elegant and yet simple card – and the sentiment could be congratulations or sympathy or birthday and it would be appropriate. It’s a perfect kind of card to have on hand – one with each of those sentiments. Hmmm – it’s got me thinking now that I’ve written that. Let’s get to the details.

    Begin with a Thick Basic White card base, score at 4 3/4 then at 5 1/2. Fold the card in half and burnish. Then fold the card front on the other score line, folding it back on itself and burnish. Adhere that 3/4″ area together – liquid glue or Seal +. Add your DSP: I used the Peony Garden DSP and cut two pieces, one at 5/8 x 4 1/4, the other 4 5/8 x 4 1/4. Adhere both strips directly to the card with liquid glue or Stampin’ Seal. Wrap a ribbon around the glued end panel and tie a knot. Secure with a glue dot. Here I used Metallic Edged Ribbon with silver trim. With Gray Granite card stock, die cut a border with the Ornate Frames Dies. Stamp your sentiment with Gray Granite ink on a Basic White scrap – here I used the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Die cut with one of the Ornate Frames Dies that fit the border just prepared. Adhere the two together with liquid glue and attach to the front of the card with dimensionals. And the card front is done!

    Prized Peony Thanks – #2

    For the inside of the card, I cut a panel of Basic White 4 x 4 1/2 and stamped the smaller peony in Gray Granite ink. I colored it using NEW Stampin’ Blends: Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent. These new Blends colors will be available May 4 – just a couple of days away! I adhered this panel to a piece of Gray Granite card stock with liquid glue then adhered this to the inside of the card – and voila!

    Prized Peony Thanks – #1

    For the envelope, you can see I added more of the Peony Garden DSP to the flap. I also stamped the same sweet smaller peony on the front of the envelope in Gray Granite ink and colored it with the same NEW Stampin’ Blends: Pale Papaya & Soft Succulent. (I’ve mention this before but want to reinforce – when coloring on an envelope with Blends, be certain to put a scrap panel of card stock in the envelope so the color does not go through to the backside of it.) Now your card is ready to send to someone special… so get the address on it and send. 🙂

    Products for todays project are from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog which ends May 3 and some are carrying over as I mentioned. They may be found in the list below.
