A BIG TIME THANK YOU FOR A FRIEND

I was recently asked to create a thank you card for a Manager who is moving away.  Of course, I was happy to do it and came up with this cute card using the Animal Outing Bundle (CM) (WM).

The crocodile background is meant to show the employees and of course, the rhinoceros is the manager!

I used a collection of our Stampin’ Blends to add colour and decorated the oval mat with a length of Black Cord and Leaf ribbon.  Word is that everyone loved it and we will wait to see what the manager has to say.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Take care and Happy Stamping to you.

ONE FOR ALL

Hi out there and welcome!  Today’s card uses the One For All stamp set to create this bright and cheery thank you card.

I haven’t used our Poppy Parade cardstock very much so The Paper Players Colour Challenge was just what I needed to bring it out!  They asked us to pair it up with So Saffron and Smoky Slate as well and you can see both colours on this card.

The Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon adds just the right subtle touch.  TIP:  To avoid showing glue on this sheer ribbon, use a Stamping Sponge to add Liquid Multipurpose Glue.  Presto – no glue showing with this easy technique!

Check out the products I used below.  The One For Alll stamp set has some great “all-season” sentiments and I’ll be using it often!

Have a fabulous day and Happy Stamping to you!

THINKING OF YOU

Thinking of you with this autumn-themed card today.  We do have a layer of snow on the ground but I thought it would be good to step away from Christmas for this card.

I used a card base of Gray Granite and layered on a piece of designer paper from the Wood Textures paper stack.  The card needed some colour, so Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze were my go-to colours for the leaves.

That little piece on the bottom of the greeting oval is from the Frames Elements package.  It need colour, so I dipped it in the Mossy Meadow ink pad and then carefully applied it using tweezers and our strong Liquid Multipurpose glue.

I used the CAS(E) this sketch layout as a starting point,

and the What Will you Stamp challenge for inspiration.

Here’s the list of products used.

IT’S A GOOD TIME TO SAY THANKS

It’s always a good time to say thanks and this card fits the bill very nicely!

I used a combination of the Falling for Leaves and Warm Hearted stamp sets for this.  The Warm Hearted set has several different greetings to cover all of the seasons and greetings that you need.

That lovely leaf was stamped first with Crushed Curry and then I used a small piece of our Stamping Sponges to add touches of Garden Green for effect.  The simple “thanks” was stamped over top with Tranquil Tide ink and the whole piece was backed with the very cool Chicken Wire Elements.

I used the layout from CAS(E) this sketch and played along with The Paper Players theme challenge of giving thanks.

Here’s the sketch in case you’d like to give it a try.

In case you were wondering….. here’s the short list of products that I used.

Have a happy, thankful day and Happy Stamping!

LOVELY AS A TREE

Do you remember when the Lovely As A Tree stamp set made it’s first appearance in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue?  It’s been years, which just goes to show that this stamp set has “roots” (pun intended).

I decided to give it some love in order to play along with The Paper Players challenge this week.  We’re to use trees and leaves as the focus.

This piece from the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series paper supplied the background and I found that Cajun Craze works fine with the Calypso Coral in the piece.  I fussy-cut those tiny leaves attached to the sentiment strip and used a Mini Glue Dot to attach the tiny bow.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

AUTUMN HARVEST

I’m going from Christmas back to autumn with today’s card!  Just for the record, it’s definitely autumn up here in northeastern BC.  There’s a chill in the air and the leaves are turning colour!

I purchased the Falling For Leaves bundle from the Holiday catalogue an decided that it needed to be used so I could play along with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

It’s a simple but great layout which leaves many options.

That large leaf can be a bit of a challenge but I put the Stamparatus to work and stamped it first with Cajun Craze ink and then again with Versamark.  Then it was just a matter of sprinkling some Clear Emboss powder over it and setting it with the Heat Tool.  I decided to add a little colour so used the ink pads listed below and an Aqua Painter for that.

Here’s the list of products.

ENDING THE WEEK WITH A GRATEFUL HEART

Hi there and welcome!  I’m ending the week with a great fall-themed card and a grateful heart with this card.

It was created with the “coming soon” stamp set called Falling for Leaves and the matching Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies.  You can get these products as a bundle so it’s a great money saver as well.

I used the Nature’s Poem Designer Series paper for the background and other details which gave the perfect colour palette to use.

This is one of the cards we will be creating in my upcoming classes so make sure to check out my Class Calendar and sign up!

I’m pretty happy with the way this pretty fall-themed card turned out and here’s the list of other products that I used.

A SIMPLE DIE-CUT THANK YOU CARD

Hi there and welcome!  After a busy weekend, I sometimes like to start the week off with a very simple project to help get the creative juices flowing.

And this card is just that – no stamping, just a simple die-cut greeting!  The inspiration for this came from the new CAS(E) this sketch layout.

The Thank You looked a little too plain in Rich Razzleberry so I “razzed” it up with a shadow of Whisper White.  Then, the whole phrase was popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here’s the very short list of everything I used.

Thank you for stopping by today and Happy Stamping to you!

THANKS FROM THE JUNGLE

I thought I’d share this thanks from the jungle card that uses the cute and fun Animal Outing Bundle.

Oh my gosh isn’t it just too cute?!  I took a little artistic licence with this CASE’d card from page 27 of the Annual Catalogue and changed it up just a bit.  The greeting was cut out with one of the dies from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits dies to go along with the spotted theme.  Those oh, so cute critters were coloured with a combination of our Stampin’ Write Markers and Stampin’ Blends.

TIP: When using alcohol markers make sure to use the Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad so the colours don’t smear.

Here’s the full list of products for you.

BRIGHTS THOUGHTS FOR SUMMER

Hi there, today’s card features the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching punch.  I haven’t used it for quite a while and with the bright summer sun, who wouldn’t want to see some bright and cheery daisies in their garden!

I used quite a few products for this card to play along with the Colour Inspiration challenge.  So here goes, Firstly, I played with Brusho ® Crystal Colour and when the piece was dry, used the Eclectic Layers Thinlits dies to cut out the centre.  It was then layered over a piece of Silver Foil.  The card front was embossed with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.

The daisy image was stamped 3 times, cut out with the matching Daisy Punch, layered and added to the card front using Dimensionals.  It definitely needed leaves, so they were stamped and the fussy cut with our Paper Snips.

Are you ready for the list of products?  Here you go!

Daisy Punch

$24.00

Whew – that’s one labour-intensive card – let me know what you think.

Happy Stamping!
