When it comes to saying thank you nothing says it better than a handmade card and of course Stampin' Up! have bundles of products that make it so easy for doing just that!
Keeping it simple, I have used just 4 colours to create a monochrome style look.
Very Vanilla cardstock
Pink Pirouette cardstock and colouring
Basic Black cardstock, stamping and doodling
Silver cardstock and rhinestone jewels
This card measures 4, 1/8" wide by 5, 1/2" tall.
The Basic Black mat layer measures 4" x 5, 5/8"
The Very Vanilla mat layer on the front and inside the card measures 3, 7/8" x 5, 3/4"
I have used the new Stampin' Blends to add colour to the flowers. Rather than colouring in neatly, I have just added a wash of colour and some darker colour for the flower centres. Sometimes colouring outside the lines it's okay, it just depends on the look that you want to achieve.
Although this card looks quite flat I have added some dimension by stamping a separate flower, cutting it out with scissors and attaching with a foam pad. The leaf attached underneath is cut using the new 'Leaf Punch' and although it isn't clear in the photo I have used Silver Foil Card to add some shine.
To add some sparkle I have added some rhinestone jewels to the centre of the attached flower and some others at random in the Vanilla space.
The line around the edges of the card is drawn freestyle with a Basic Black Stampin' Marker and I think it lift's the image off the page better than keeping it plain.
To finish off this project I have stamped and coloured a flower inside the card and also on the envelope.
The 'I am Thankful For You' sentiment comes from the 'Painted Harvest' stamp set and the flower comes from the new 'Colour Me Happy' stamp set.
Every year Stampin' Up! hold 2 events called On Stage. This is for demonstrators from around the world to get together in one place to celebrate successes, craft, swap projects and hear about new products. The main event is held in Utah (usually) and then there are local events.
I was lucky enough to attend one of these events at the weekend and boy did it live up to the hype!!
The are many things I live about Stampin' Up! As I may have mentioned before but the main one is the people I have met asking the way that I get to call friends and spending time with them at these sort of events really is fab! We eventually come away with a few free things too!!
Here are a few pics of things that we got up to...
How amazing and there is so much inspiration here that I can't wait to get into my craft room and get making!!
I was so lucky to be joined by 4 of my wonderful team of Stampin' Stars and we had an absolute blast. So much laughter and sharing in the excitement of what's happened and what's coming up next!
The next event takes place in April 2018 and you can be part of that too!! If you would like to find out how just send me a message or get in touch.
