Thank You Cards



Hi there, I hope your weekend is going well!

Today I pulled out some The Stamp Market items to play with.  I’ve never played with their products before but I’ve had my eye on a few of their stamp sets for a while and I finally got some thanks to their Black Friday sale last week. 

I started by heat embossing the Diamond Design Background stamp onto an A2-sized piece of cardstock using Judikins Translucent Gold embossing powder.  I really like the soft yellow of this gold embossing powder which is lighter in color than Ranger’s gold embossing powder.  I used Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock, thinking that I might blend some Distress Inks but I changed my mind, so any cardstock would have done.

I stamped the largest and smallest flowers from the Just Flowers layering stamp in Coral Bliss Altenew Ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  I stamped the inner part of the flower with Sunkissed Altenew ink, and then used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink for the black layer.  I embossed the very centers of the flower by covering a small area with a Ranger embossing pen before adding Translucent Gold powder.  I repeated the same steps for the medium-sized flower, except I used Pink Pearl ink in place of the Coral Bliss.  I used a Brother ScanNCut2 to cut the flowers out and then I set them aside.

Using the Thanks die from the Beyond Grateful bundle, I die cut the sentiment from black 110# Recollections cardstock, and the shadow layer from Neenah Solar White.  I adhered the two together.

To assemble the card, I backed the flowers and sentiment with foam tape and adhered them onto the background.  Then I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
