Nested Friends Thank You Card

this is a sweet little card; i do love anything with birds.  Since making this video I did add a few speckles to the eggs, a suggestion from my buddy Sandy Shipp.  She was right it added a bit to the card.  I also like the built in stand, it is easy and simple.  This reminds me, despite all of the cold and snow this winter, spring is just around the corner. Boy am I ready.

Back to My Stash Thank You Card

I thought i would add a back to the stash card at least monthly.  We need a break every now and then from always looking at what is new.  We have so many beautiful stamps and papers on hand.  This is my first in the series, and I used the magnificent magnolia, from “Good Morning Magnolia”.  The technique used with this card is using ink and your aqua painter to color in the flower.  The pineapple punch color is a true, beautiful yellow, I love it.

I used a Whisper White Card Base, 8 ½” by 5 ½“ scored and folded at 4 ¼“.  I then used 2 additional pieces of Whisper White 3 ¾ “ by 5”, and 2 Pieces of Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock 4″ by 5 1/4″ in green for my background layer.  

I do so appreciate your stopping by.  Let me know if you have questions.

Fast and Beautiful Poppy Thank You Card

This is one of my Fast and Beautiful Cards.  This series is meant to help you make a card in just a few minutes.  The card can be put together in minutes, because the Designer Series Paper does most of the design work. The sentiment is stamped right on the DSP.  This card  is fast, fast, fast!

I used a Gorgeous Grape Card Base, 8 ½” by 5 ½“ scored and folded at 4 ¼“.  I used a layer of Basic Black 4″ by 5 1/4″ for layering.  On the front I used a piece of DSP 3 3/4 by 5, a small strip 1″ by 3 3/4″ of the reverse side of the DSP and cut 2 flowers from the same paper for my embellishment.  I used an additional piece of Whisper White 3 ¾ “ by 5” for the inside.


Following are the few pieces used to make this card.

Honey Bee Patchwork Thank You Card

This is a fun way to use up scraps or create a color themed card.  It is very easy to do.

I used a standard card base in Basic Black 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″.  I mounted all of my “scraps” onto a piece of Whisper White that is 4″ by 5 1/4″ all of the scraps from the Honey Bee Specialty DSP are 1/2″ strips of paper.  This was fun as the paper is patterned on both sides so there were lots of designs from which to pick.  I did fussy cut out the flower on the second card and used a punch from my stash for the middle circle.  There is a die that will cut that flower out for you and you could use your circle dies to get the graduated look.

Ginkgo Thank You Card

This is another stamp set I could hardly wait to get my hands on.  I think this card has a definite Art Deco feel.

The stamping over the inked image with Versa Mark and Gold Embossing Powder sets this card apart.  I also used gold embossing powder on the strip of Gold Foil, for a more unique look.  I love the Art Deco feel of this card and the soft yellow sponging, or brushing and simple message, adds the finishing touches to this one.   

The Granny Apple Card Base is 8 ½” by 5 ½“ scored and folded at 4 ¼“.  The Soft Suede layering piece is 4″ by 5 ¼ “, and the  2 pieces of Whisper White are 4” by 5 ¼ “ and 3 ¾ “ by 5”.

Breathtaking Bouquet Card and Acknowledgement

Back in November 2019 when I was attending the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Las Vegas, ‘SU’ gifted two stamp sets to a group of demonstrators.  They were then asked to find someone in the room to further gift one of those stamp sets.  I was the lucky recipient of the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set, from Jackie Rosemond from Mansfield, Texas.  Here is a picture of Jackie presenting me with this beautiful Stamp set.  


I promised Jackie then, that I would make a card for her using this stamp set and send it to her.  Well, I finally got that done and here is the card. 


I will be sending this off to Jackie in the next few days and thought I would share the card with you. 

I stamped this very large stamp, using Momento Ink two times and colored in the flowers with my Stampin’ Blends and cut them out of one of the panels.  I used Stampin Blends light and dark for, Real Red, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Pineapple Punch and Mango Melody.  I sponged the background of the first panel in Granny Apple Green and Garden Green, and raised the flower cut out on dimensionals.  The sentiment stamp is from Daisy Delight.  The outside front panel is 4 1/8″ by 5 3/8″.  The card is on a standard base 8 1/2″ by 5 1/3″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

I love my stamp set Jackie, Thank You!!!
