Hello! Thank you for visiting today to see this Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card!

Welcome to the Kylie & Bruno Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for January 2023. I’m Theresa with Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am so glad you are joining me today!

Today’s card will be my customer Thank You card for anyone ordering from my Online Store in January. This blog hop is also full of ideas and creative inspiration! Be sure to visit everyone’s blog by clicking on the links at the end of my blog.

This Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card is made using the awesome Fancy Flora 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper. The “Thank You” sentiment is part of a must-have sentiment set Something Fancy. The Something Fancy stamp set has sentiments for a variety of common card themes!

The beauty of the Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card is that you can use a variety of the Stampin’ Up! colors. TIP: The coordinating colors are always listed on the back of the package of Designer Series Paper. The colors for the Fancy Flora DSP that I chose are: Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Orchid Oasis, Fresh Freesia & Calypso Coral.

Measurements

  • Basic White cs: 2 x 2 inches for the sentiment

  • Take Your Pick Tool (for moving the gems)

This version of my Quick & Easy Something Fancy Thank You Card is done with Orchid Oasis cs.

Instructions

  1. Stamp the “Thank You” sentiment in Orchid Oasis Ink onto the
    2 x 2 inch Basic White cs.
  2. Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the second to the smallest stitched square die in the Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut the sentiment.
  3. Adhere the Fancy Flora DSP to the Orchid Oasis cs. Then adhere the panel to the front of the Basic White cs card base.
  4. Use glue to adhere the 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Orchid Oasis cs square to the sentiment at a slight angle. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Now for some Bling! The Iridescent Pastel Gems come in 3 colors-Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral and Gold. I used 3 of the Balmy Blue gems around the sentiment to add a little sparkle!

Voila!

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery-January 2023: Two-Tone Flora & Something Fancy Thank You

I am so excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with my Two-Tone & Something Fancy Thank You card, along with 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 really is important to show your appreciation to the people in your life who have helped you or inspired you in some way. And don’t forget those who have supported you. Be sure to send a handmade thank you card to express your appreciation often. Spread joy! We really need more joy in the world today!

This thank you card spotlights the Two-Tone Flora stamp set, Two-Tone Flora Dies, Something Fancy stamp set & Something Fancy Dies, The Embossing Folder is the new Cane Weave 3D. The cool geometric paper is the Dandy Designs 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP), FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order. The current Host Code is MBR2U6TN.

Measurements

  • Basic White card stock (cs) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches
  • Basic White cs: 2 x 2 inches (to stamp & die cut the sentiment),
    3 x 3 inches (to die-cut the stitched circle) and enough scrap to stamp all of the images on
  • Calypso Coral cs: 4 x 5 1/4 inches
  • Petal Pink cs: 1 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches (to die cut the banner) and
    2 1/4 x 5 1/8 inches
  • Dandy Designs DSP: 2 x 5 inches

Supplies

Instructions

  • I recommend using the Stamparatus for Two-Step Stamping. I find it is much easier to line up the second stamp. Each flower is a Two-Step Stamp. Stamp the larger part of the flower in Petal Pink Ink first. Then stamp the detailed stamp in Calypso Coral. The small bunch of flowers is stamped in Fresh Freesia Ink first. Then stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink. Use the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker to draw the center of each of the Petal Pink flowers.
  • Next, stamp the “Thank You” sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink. Die cut the sentiment using the Something Fancy Dies.
  • Use the Stylish Shapes Dies to die cut the 2 1/2 inch stitched circle and the banner.
  • Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to emboss the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Calypso Coral cs with the Cane Weave Embossing Folder
  • Adhere the Cane Weave card piece to the front of the Basic White cs card base.
  • Adhere the Dandy Designs DSP to the 2 1/4 x 5 1/8 inch Petal Pink cs. Then adhere this to the left side of the card front.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment.
  • Adhere the Petal Pink cs banner. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Basic White cs stitched circle.
  • Place the flowers as desired. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals on some flowers. Add the leaves.
  • Color the White Seam Binding Ribbon with the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker. Tie into a bow. Adhere to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot.

Bling! Use the Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots in Petal Pink to add Bling! to the card front.

Voila!

Experiment with different colors to see which one you like best!

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery-December 2022-Peaceful Deer & Fabulous Frames

I am so excited to be in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery along with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world! The theme for the Gallery is “Thank You”.

We often forget those simple words – “Thank you”. However, it really is important to show your appreciation to the people in your life who have helped you or inspired you in some way, as well as those who have supported you, by sending a handmade thank you card.

This beautiful mountain scene is created with ink pads and the Blending Brushes. The trees are from the Peaceful Deer stamp set. The ornate photo corners can be found in the Fabulous Frame Dies. If you like my card, you can vote for it HERE.

Measurements

  • Blackberry Bliss card stock (cs) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches scored & folded at 4 1/4 inches
  • Blackberry Bliss cs: 1 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches for the photo corners
  • Shimmery White cs: two at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches (one will be cut down to 3 x 4 1/4 inches after blending the ink for the front and one is for the inside of the card)
  • Shimmery White cs: 1 x 2 1/2 inches (for the sentiment)

Supplies

  • Peaceful Deer stamp set
  • Beauty of Friendship stamp set (sentiment)
  • Fabulous Frames Dies
  • Ink pads: Rich Razzleberry, Fresh Freesia, Starry Sky, Evening Evergreen, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Blackberry Bliss (sentiment)
  • Blending Brushes: I use one brush for each color of the rainbow. For example, I have a “red” brush that I use for pinks and reds, a “yellow” brush for yellows, a “blue” brush for blues, etc.
  • Copier paper
  • Sticky note tape
  • Paper for table to blend ink onto
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Adhesive (glue or tape runner)
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Paper Trimmer

Instructions

Blending the Card Front

Please see my blog HERE for another look at the technique to make a mountain and valley with the Blending Brushes.

  1. Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto the 1 inch strip of Shimmery White cs. Use the label die in the Fabulous Frames Dies to cut it out. Set aside

2. Use the sticky note tape to secure one of the 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Shimmery White cs to the paper covering your table. Tear the copy paper into strips to create the mountains and valleys. Tip: I had a torn strip for each color I used to avoid having the colors mix into an ugly brown when blending.

3. Secure the torn copy paper to start at the top of the Shimmery White cs. Blend on the Rich Razzleberry Ink on the right side. Then blend in the Fresh Freesia Ink. Remove the paper, move it down a bit and secure. Then blend on more Fresh Freesia Ink.

4. Use a different strip to blend in the Starry Sky Ink. Then another strip for the Evening Evergreen. Leave the strip for the Evening Evergreen Ink in place. Stamp Off some of the small pine trees from the Peaceful Deer stamp set in the Evening Evergreen Ink then stamp onto the Shimmery White cs. Move the strip of torn copy paper down. Then blend in another layer of the Evening Evergreen Ink. Stamp Off a few more of the small pine trees and stamp onto the card piece with the torn copy paper in place.

5. Remove the strip after the 2nd layer of Evening Evergreen Ink. Stamp the medium and large pine trees in Evening Evergreen Ink. Reapply the strip and blend a 3rd layer. Stamp some medium pine trees around the larger trees.

6. Apply one layer of Daffodil Delight Ink. Finish up with Pumpkin Pie Ink in the lower left-hand corner.

Blending the Inside of the Card

1. Use the second 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Shimmery White cs for the inside of the card. Apply the sticky tape to mask all but a 1/2 inch strip on the right. Apply the ink as described above. Remove the mask.

Assembling the card

  1. Adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss cs card base.

2. Adhere the Sun Print DSP to the front of the card base.

3. Cut the first Shimmery White cs card piece to 3 x 4 1/4 inches. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it at an angle to the front of the card base. Adhere the ornate Blackberry Bliss cs photo corners.

4. Add the sentiment. You can add some Bling if you like. (I actually forgot! I made this card as I was headed out to Nashville to see my 1st grand baby, so I hope you can forgive me this one time! Lol!)

Voila! You have a very artistic mountain scene for a special handmade thank you card!

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you try this technique. It is very fun and rewarding.

Oddly enough, I did not add any Bling. If you want to purchase the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack, you could add some of the Amber Gems to this card for extra sparkle!

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery- November 2022- Stampin’ Up!® Fitting Florets with the Kindest Gnomes

I am delighted to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world today! The theme for the Gallery is “Thank You”. We often forget those simple words – Thank you. It is so important to show your appreciation to the people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you, and supported you by sending them a thank you card.

This cute little gnome really makes this fall thank you card fun. The background is from the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper (DSP). The gnome hat is made with the Celebrate Everything DSP. The leaves and oval are from the Framed Florets Dies which is part of the Fitting Florets Collection that just came out.

This lovely collection includes: Framed Florets and Framed & Festive stamp sets, Framed Florets Dies, Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls.

Here is how to make my card

Measurements

  • Thick Basic White cardstock (cs): 4 1/4 x 11 inches for the card base. 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 x 4 inches for cutting the frames.
  • Vellum cs: 4 x 5 1/4 inches to cut the inside oval for the sentiment
  • Basic White cs: 4 1/4 x 11 inches to stamp the flowers & leaves on.

Instructions

  1. Stamp the flower & leaf images onto the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic White cs. Color with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I used: Poppy Parade combo, Dark Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce combo, Dark Mint Macaron and Light Daffodil Delight.
  1. Use the Framed Florets Dies to cut all of the images out. You will also need to stamp and color an additional small single flower, large single flower, sprig of leaves and the pair of leaves for the inside of the card.
  2. Run the Thick Basic White cs card base through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder on the front panel. Set aside.
  3. Cut out the larger frame in the Framed Florets Dies from the Vellum cs and from the Thick Basic White cs.
  4. Cut out the smaller frame from the Thick Basic White cs.
  5. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment “Thank you with all my Heart” in Stazon Black Ink onto the oval created when you cut the large frame from the Vellum cs.
  6. Adhere the stamped Vellum cs oval to the Thick Basic White cs oval with Mini Glue Dots around the edges such that they will be covered with the flowers.
  7. Adhere the large frame cut from the Thick Basic White cs to the front of the card base.
  8. Adhere the Vellum/Thick Basic White cs oval to the center of the large frame.
  9. Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the smaller frame over the sentiment piece.
  10. Lay the flowers and leaves down the way you would like them to look.
  11. I adhered some with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Add the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls.
  13. For the inside of the card adhere the images as shown below.

Voila! You have a very elegant Thank You card!
