Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Today I will be sharing the replay of my Facebook LIVE last night where I highlighted the Saying Thanks Card Kit and will show you making them is Easy Breezy! These kits include everything you need to create the cards and even include coordinating envelopes. Then I’m going to use one of the card bases and add some stamping to it!! Oh … I can’t wait to show this to you!
First, lets take a look at the video …
I really love this kit … as it states, it’s perfect for NEW Crafters / Cardmakers, Busy Moms or Grandmas! Great to craft with your kids (thanks Barb) and they are nice to have on hand when you need a quick card!!
As you look at these three cards, you could change up the “occasion” with just a little simple stamping! Turn the polka dots into a “birthday” or the hearts into “I Love You” or “I’m Here For You” card … anything you can imagine!
Now … let’s talk about that rainbow card. The minute I saw it, a stamp set came to mind and I know I had to try it out. I normally don’t really change up my “Kit” cards but I didn’t think swapping out a greeting / sentiment would hurt.
When I saw the Covered in Sunshine stamp set, well … I had to have it. Look at the samples in the Mini Catalog (page 37/ below) and you can see why I was tempted to purchase this one… It’s different! It’s happy and encouraging and fun! Stampin’ Up! did a great job on these samples.
So … look at the rainbow card above, and you’ll see where I got my inspiration from for my Saying Thanks Kit card. I thought it was the perfect time to do a “Mash Up” of products and see how it turns out.
Here you go ….
I love the way it turned out! It almost looks hand written, cool right, and perfect to send to a friend. And I told you in the video that I would be using up those hearts, and this is just the beginning. Let me share with you how I got the sentiment so perfect.
Oh, those of you who own the Stamparatus already knew where I was going with this ….
Using the Stamparatus allows you to align your sentiment perfectly and then “repeatedly” stamp it until you get the depth of color you want. I do believe I stamped my greeting 4 times to get it nice and dark so that it really showed up on such a colorful background.
They really do go together nicely … don’t they? Those cute little confetti embellishments that come in the kit are shiny so I thought I would add my Wink of Stella to my heart so that it sparkled too!!
I have the links listed below so you may add these products to your stamp collection. The Saying Thanks Kit, Covered in Sunshine Stamp Set and Wink of Stella “almost” gets you to a FREE Sale-a-bration item, so if you need some adhesive, cardstock or embellishments now would be a good time.
I want to “Thank You” for joining me today. I hope you have a wonderful day.
Here are those links that I promised …. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
