Working with the Orchid Oasis Ink

  1. Fold the Highland Heather card base on the score line. Place on a scratch paper.
  2. Position the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask over the front panel of the card base. Hold in place with sticky tape.
  3. Use the Blending Brush and the Orchid Oasis Ink to gradually apply ink in a circle slightly left of center. Remove the mask.
  4. Place the Basic White inside card piece on the scratch paper. Position the mask and hold in place with the sticky tape.
  5. Now use the Blending Brush to gradually apply ink to the upper right and lower left corner of the Basic White cs inside.
  6. Remove the mask and rinse it off with water. Set aside to dry.
  7. Stamp the “THANK YOU” sentiment on the end of the 2 1/2″ x
    8 1/2″ (6.4cm x 20.9cm) Basic White cs.
  8. Next stamp “I really appreciate You” on the Basic White inside card piece.
  9. Adhere the Basic White inside to the inside panel of the Highland Heather card base.

Timeless Arrangements Dies

  1. Diecut the following pieces from the Basic White cs with the “Thank You” stamped on it. The Dies are shown as well as the cut pieces. You will need four of the longer leaf branch.
  1. Die cut the Thank You with the medium sized rectangle die.
  2. Start gluing the leaf branches together on a Silicon Craft Sheet to make a longer branch to place over the thank you sentiment.
  3. Start with one long branch and several short branches to build the more full leaf branch to place under the sentiment.
  4. Use a Small Blending Brush to gradually add ink to the flowers as shown below.
  1. Glue the flowers to the top of the leaf branches.

Putting it altogether

  1. Position the leaves & flowers on the card front with the thank you sentiment in place but not adhered.
  2. Glue the leaves & flowers to the card front.
  3. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the thank you sentiment.
  4. Now for the Bling!
  5. Tie a small bow with the beautiful Metallic Ribbon. Adhere to the card front with a Mini Dimensional.
  6. Add the awesome Orchid Oasis In Color Pearls. I used 5 pearls close to the leaf arrangements.
  7. If desired, use the marvelous Wink of Stella on the flowers for more sparkle!
  8. That is it!

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery-May 2023: Torn Paper Sea Turtle Thank You Card

Hello, thank you for visiting Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am Theresa, an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I am super excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with my torn paper Sea Turtle Thank You card. Projects in this gallery are designed by Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! The theme for this Gallery is “Thank You”.

We often forget those simple words “Thank you”. However, it is super important to show appreciation to the people in your life who have helped you, supported you or inspired you. One way to express gratitude is to send a handmade thank you card. Discover the joy in making and sending a handmade card!

I am using torn card stock to create the background “water” for these cute sea turtles!

This Sea Turtle Thank You Card showcases the Sea Turtle stamp set in the new 2023-34 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

Create the Background

  1. Adhere several of the torn Misty Moonlight cs strips onto the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Boho Blue cs with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  2. Stamp some bubbles in Boho Blue ink. Then use the Pumpkin Pie ink to stamp some fish.
  3. Place the card piece in the Painted Textures Embossing Folder and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.


  1. Use a Sponge Dauber and the Garden Green Ink to apply ink to the head, tail and extremities of the baby sea turtle.
  2. Now use another Sponge Dauber and the Early Expresso Ink to daub ink onto the shell. Before the ink dries, coat the shell with Clear Emboss Powder. If some powder gets on the Garden Green Ink, use a dry paint brush to brush it away.
  3. Use the Heat Tool. Repeat until you have 4 turtles.
  4. Fussy cut.
  5. Use the Garden Green Ink and the 2 1/2″ x 3″ Very Vanilla cs to stamp the medium “Thank You” from the Go To Greetings stamp set on one end.
  6. Punch the sentiment out with the smooth oval of the Double Oval Punch.
  7. Also punch a smooth oval from the Garden Green cs. Adhere to the back of the Very Vanilla cs oval, slightly off-set.
  8. Use the Boho Blue Ink to stamp some bubbles in the lower right-hand corner of the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cs.

Putting it all Together

  1. Adhere the Very Vanilla cs with the Boho Blue bubbles on it to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam cs card base.
  2. Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere one of the turtles to the inside.
  3. Apply Wink of Stella to the Misty Moonlight cs “waves”.
  4. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the other 3 sea turtles and adhere to the background.
  5. Adhere the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Adhere the card front to the front of the Soft Sea Foam cs card base.
  7. Add the Boho Blue In Color Dots for more “bubbles”.
