June Thank You Card video

Hello, Crafters. 
Earlier today I posted my June Customer Thank You Card video.

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that I photographed the other colours, just the mushroom design from the Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper (DSP).

However, I do show the other colours in the video.

Although this DSP isn't anything like my regular pattern choice, this mushroom design just appealed to me!

The 3D swaps I made for Thailand are the same as video no. 284 - Key Ring Gift Box. (See link at end of today's blog).

This is the gift I made as my thank you to all my customers who shopped with me online during June.

I changed the design for the swaps by using the Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP.

I also decorated the boxes with daisies stamped from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set, and I layered three on top of each other.
I used various ribbons for each colour of foil DSP, using what I felt was the closest colour.  
For the Berry Burst Foil boxes, I used the 1/8" Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon. 

For the Lemon Lime Twist Boxes I used the 1/8" Old Olive Sheer Ribbon.

Finally, for the Tangerine Tango boxes I used the 1/4" Copper Trim.  
I was really pleased with how I was able to mix and match the colours so successfully!

Inside my thank you boxes for my June customers, I put an English key ring which I thought would be appreciated by demos on the trip from outside the UK.

I have found that generally when I stamp the daisies, if I stamp them on Whisper White Cardstock (CS), the centre of the flower "pops" if it's stamped tone on tone, on the same coloured cardstock.

Likewise, if I stamp the daisy on coloured cardstock, the centre "pops" if it's stamped on Whisper White CS.

No doubt there'll come a time when this isn't the case!

I used various ribbons for each colour of foil DSP, using what I felt was the closest colour. 

This is the video that shows how I made these boxes:-

We fly home tomorrow, but not until midnight. 

In the morning we have booked a trip to the Elephant Sanctuary, which is the trip we missed last week because hubby wasn't feeling well. 

I booked a late checkout so we can do our packing when we get back from the sanctuary.

Happy crafting. 



  1. Love the card ... especially the one you did in this video. That paper so appeals to me too, that I think I would order the paper pack just for that one pattern. Love it! (love mushrooms! LOL) ... great video again Jan, and thanks! That Foil Frenzy is gorgeous too. SU really outdid themselves this year in the DSP range of choices! Hope you're having a super time still!

    1. Hi, Geraldine. I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds this design charming. We're now at Phuket Airport waiting for our flight home. We'll be back in the UK lunchtime tomorrow (Friday). ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
