Giving Thanks

Hello everyone.  Today is another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me.  This time our challenge was to make a thank you or being grateful card.

I love cards that have different angles so I decided to make a thank you card with that in mind.  The colors I used on this care are Night Of Navy, Old Olive and Whisper White.  It was a fairly simple card to make (as I usually try to do).

I first used a die from the set called Tasteful Background.  There are three dies in this set that just cut out designs from backgrounds.  In this case I used the flower one cutting it twice on a 3.75″ by 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I took a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered it behind the lower section and let the layer of Old Olive cardstock show through on the top.  I stamped the sentiment  from the stamp set called Tropical Chic in Old Olive ink and then layered it on a piece of Old Olive cardstock.  I cut the ends at an angle with my Trimmer.

I thought about adding some rhinestones or enamel dots to the center of the flowers but decided that might be a little too much bling.  I don’t know though.  I still might!

Now let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made.  I always love our Stamp Off Challenge days!

By the way,  I am on my way to Hartford CT to attend a Stampin’ Up!® mini convention called OnStage Local.  It is a one day event for Demonstrators that happens twice a year all over the world.  Buffy and two of my downline are meeting me there so it should be a blast.  I only wish Jackie was coming too.  If you are interested in becoming a Stampin Up! Demonstrator so you can attend these fun events, just shoot me an email or click on the Join Now button to the right of this post.

  1. Susan, I LOVE the way you’ve let that die fill the whole card, by using an angle cut for the sentiment. That is such a brilliant technique and your card is stunning.
