I was busy making my thank you cards for my customers who shopped with
me during December.
At the moment I'm really hooked on the Petal Palette
Stamp Set, especially the little robin!
always keep the designs for my thank you cards simple, and it's extremely rare that I
ever use Dimensionals on them.
Although I kept this design simple, I felt the robin and the sentiment really needed the extra depth of the Dimensionals.
always, I used our regular Notecards & Envelopes which come in a pack
Using Wild Wasabli Ink, I stamped the long spotty stamp along the
bottom of the card.
I judged the position by placing the edge of the
wooden block along the bottom edge of the card.
As I had already folded
the card, I found it a great help to sit the wooden stamp of the leaves
that I was going to use in the centre of the card, on the top part of the
card to hold the card closed while I was stamping.
Then I turned the
card 180°, and stamped the spotty stamp again, judging the same distance
as I had for the bottom half of the card.
did the cards in batches, conveyor-belt style!
I turned the card the
right way up, and then stamped the large leaf stamp at an angle so that
the stem was pointing down off to the right hand side.
Each card was a
little different, except one of them, which was very diffrent because I
stamped the leaf upside down!
Can you see which card I'm referring to?
used the Thank You stamp from the Petal Palette Stamp Set, and stamped the sentiment on
ready cut strips.
have a box of these strips, which are in fact offcuts from where I'd
cut sheets of Whisper White Cardstock (CS), for projects gone by!
I keep all the offcut strips from the Whisper White CS in a box ready for
times like this.
I lined the stamp up in the same way I had with the
It worked well most of the time but I had to discard 2 or
3, or maybe 6 or 7 of them, because I misjudged the position big time! LOL!
stamped the robin using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White CS,
and coloured the same wy I did on yesterday's video.
I painted the body
using the Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends Pen, and then painted his red
breast using the Light Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Pen.
I added Dimensionals on the
sentiment, and the robin, and adhered to the card front.
very simple card but very strking, I think!
Today I'll be putting
together my December customers' Happy Mail, which is the earliest I ever
It was a fluke it worked out like this, but I'm going to see If I
can do it this way again.
Yesterday was the first day of 2018 Sale-a-bration, and I'm really pleased that having problems with the Stampin' Up! server are long gone.
I'm also very pleased to see at least three of the orders which came into my online store have been shipped already!
BIG, BIG THANKS to Stampin' Up! for the amazing service they provide for us all!
That's about it from me today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
