Share What You Love Bundle Thank You Card

Have you seen the early release product bundles? You can see them HERE. The Share What You Love bundles are full of beautiful floral paper, embellishments, stamp sets, and more. Be sure to get yours by May 31, because that’s the last day they’ll be available. You can also order the new 2018-2020 In Color ink pads in a bundle to save 10%. These products will be in the new annual catalog that goes live June 1 (all except the Statement of My Heart stamp set) but the bundles and free products won’t be. 

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my monthly Stamp Club. It’s a thank you card made using the Share What You Love bundle items.

Pink & Blue Baby Shower Party Favor Cigars

Today’s project is made with several retiring products: World’s Best Trophy stamp set, Archival Basic Black ink pad, and card stock in Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, and Soft Sky. Chocolate Chip is the perfect reddish brown color for a cigar. I wrapped it around large rolls of Sweetarts candies. The cigar bands are strips of card stock with 1″ punched circles. I didn’t have a stamp set that included “boy,” although there are a few that have the word “girl.” So I used the “son” and “daughter” from the World’s Best Trophy stamp set. These make great party favors for a baby shower. You can change the band color and sentiment for any occasion.

You can see everything that is retiring HERE. Everything is available through May 31, or while supplies last.

 

Here’s what I made:

Eclectic Expressions Polka Dot Thank You Card

Do you like experimenting with abstract patterns? Then the Eclectic Expressions stamp set is for you! Repeat, layer, and overlap images. For today’s card I decided to use only one of the pattern stamps, but I repeated it in three different colors. It’s such a simple card, but the textured dots bring it to life. Just change the colors and the sentiment, and this can be for anyone and any occasion.
