Love What You Do Thank You Card by Debbie Catlett

Today I get to share a card made by one of my amazing Candy Hearts team members, Debbie Catlett. She used the Love What You Do stamp set to create this simple and elegant thank you card.

Here’s what she made:

Here’s what (I think) she did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Pear Pizzazz CS cut to 3-1/8″ x 4-7/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3″ x 4-3/4″

Stamped with the Love What You Do stamp set:

  • flowers in Pear Pizzazz ink onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • sentiment in Highland Heather ink onto the Whisper White CS layer

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • flowers in Highland Heather

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Gorgeous Grape ribbon wrapped around the Whisper White CS layer and tied in a knot over the flower stems
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Pear Pizzazz CS layer
  • Pear Pizzazz CS layer glued onto the front of the card base

IRBH September Morn Autumnal Projects

Welcome! It’s time for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop. This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “September Morn,” a Neil Diamond classic from the late ’70’s. You can hear the song at the bottom of this post. Today’s hop is filled with projects inspired by the beauty of Autumn. September is when the air becomes crisp and the leaves start to fall. We’re so excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the hop – scroll down to see the full list.

Most of us stampers have multiple stamp sets to use. I love mixing and matching products to see what I can come up with. I used 3 stamp sets on today’s card: Gallery Grunge, Wishing You Well, and Eastern Beauty.My idea was a bouquet of dried plants, tied with an organza bow, and lying on a wooden floor. How do you think I did?

 

Here’s what I made:

Wishing You Well, Gallery Grunge, Eastern Beauty, by Stampin' Up! thank you card Candy Ford #stampcandy

Now that I look at it, I wish I had stamped off the Sahara Sand background image before stamping it onto the card layer. I think it may have looked better lighter.*

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Soft Suede card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Cajun Craze CS layer cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Very Vanilla CS layer cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Gallery Grunge stamp set:

  • background image in Sahara Sand ink onto the Very Vanilla CS layer (stamped off first?) *

Stampin with the Wishing You Well stamp set:

  • “bouquet”over the background image, first in Crumb Cake ink, and again in Soft Suede ink, slightly offset from each other
  • bow over bouquet stems in Cajun Craze ink

Stamped with the Eastern Beauty stamp set:

  • sentiment in Cajun Craze ink to the left of the bouquet

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • stamped layer glued onto the Cajun Craze CS layer
  • Cajun Craze CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • 4″ x 5-1/4″ Very Vanilla CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Tropical Thanks Diaper Fold Treat Holder

If you ever need a sweet (and fast) way to present a small treat or gift, this adorable little diaper fold treat holder is perfect. You can insert candies, tea bags, cash, jewelry, or anything else small. I made this one from a piece of Tropical Escape 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper – I love the pinks and greens in this paper! The sentiment is from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. I stuffed the treat holder full of Key Lime hard candies that I got from Amazon.com.

The diaper fold takes mere seconds! The rest depends on how fancy you want it decorated. This one took less than 5 minutes total.

 

Here’s what I made:

  • top triangle on the front folded down over the two previous folded pieces
  • burnished all folds with a Bone Folder
  • sentiment glued onto the Blushing Bride CS oval
  • Blushing Bride CS oval adhered to the front of the treat holder using Stampin’ Dimensionals
