Good Morning! Here is a super sweet and super easy thank you card for you! My inspiration came from the catalog (on page 48) – I highly encourage you to look at the samples that are in the catalog as they are total keepers!!!!
Before we get to the card, remember that TODAY is that LAST day that you will earn DOUBLE PAW PRINTS from me….remember, the Stampin’ Up! Bonus Days are all this month and I always have my Paw Print Rewards for you..but I know that having DOUBLE PAW PRINTS will greatly add to you receiving FREE STAMPS from me!
Today is also a PPA day and we are working with a color challenge! Today’s challenge was inspired from the super sweet Katy McGloin. In being a PAL, we have such special relationships that we build through a cyber world and Katy is always so inspiring and helpful!
The below bundle has been super popular and by taking a look at it, you can easily see why! The thinlits are soooooo beautiful and detailed and I highly recommend using the precision platform when using these thinlits (they come out clean, crisp and CUT) and then look at the sentiments in this set – FABULOUS!
One word of wisdom that I learned from my wonderful upline, Mary Fish….when in doubt – go with the sentiment stamp set. This is something that I remember often if I am looking at deciding on 2 different stamp sets…this is very true when you look at the below bundle.
In creating this card for you today, I decided to add a 3rd color, Flirty Flamingo to add more interest and depth! You can see that this is a very straight forward card, nothing fancy or hard but the end result is a great “go to” layout that by changing the colors and sentiment up…you are GOOD TO GO!
I admit, when I first started stamping and getting to know the Stampin’ up! colors…I thought that Sahara Sand was ICKY.….how wrong I was – it is a FABULOUS neutral that works with just about any color combination. If you have not played with it, I encourage you to give it a try!
The embossing folder that I used was a new one, Sparkle….and it is one that can work all year around! I often say that I forget about embossing folders and I am glad that I added it to today’s card as it adds a “fun factor”
This was an easy no brainer for me, when I need to find a great paper to work for my card…my motto, when in doubt – pull the DSP Stacks out! Works every time and today is no different.
We are so lucky that Stampin’ Up! offers these great papers in all of the color families. This has always been a popular paper share when I am offering them so I encourage you to take advantage of this share the next time I have a share!
Lastly, the marked up version for you to save for the future. I think that you can see that this would be a card that you could put to good use. One thing that I would recommend, make up a bunch of these and do not add the sentiment to it so when you need a card, you can then add…thank you, happy birthday, with sympathy etc….I just love cards like this!
Enjoy the day and stay cool…I hope that you will try to play with these colors and see what you come up with! Pop over to the Pals Paper Art sight to see what the design team cam up with this week! They are always filled with inspiration!
Don’t forget, today is the last day that I am offering the Double Paw Prints…“twice as fast” would work for me – how about you!
