Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery- April 2022- Stampin’ Up!®Uniquely Artistic

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

The stamp set I am using today is a new one in the 2022-23 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog that will be live on May 3, 2022! Because I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I received the Uniquely Artistic stamp set when I signed up for the On Tour Business Training this last Saturday. I really enjoyed the meeting and learned some great tips!

This card was so fun to create! The stamp set has beautiful floral images. There are not any sentiments in this set. I used the “Thank You” from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set.

I created this card while spending the weekend at a craft retreat with 73 other crafters! I had such a good time catching up with friends and finishing some projects. Now I need to get back to my routine and get some blog posts written.

I wanted to make the flowers extra special. I added Wink of Stella to the petals and used the Opal Rounds for the centers.

I also decorated the inside panel. The colors used are: Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green.

If you are interested in receiving a FREE copy of the 2022-22 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, shoot me an email with your mailing address to: theresastreasures.az@gmail.com.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please click on the VOTE button below to go the the gallery and see all of the wonderful creations from Demonstrators from around the world. Please vote for my card by clicking the tiny heart in the upper right hand corner of the photo of my card.

Thank you! Have a great day!

Kylie Bertucci’s Top 10 International Blog Highlight Winners- Stampin Up!® Tulip Fields Thank You Card

I am so excited and thankful to be part of the Top 10 Winners Hop from Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight! Thank you to everyone who voted for my card from December’s International Blog Highlight, allowing me an opportunity to post on the Winners Hop. Ten fabulous demonstrators from around the world will be posting today! The theme for the card today is “Thank you”.

The “Thank You” sentiment I used is one of my favorite fonts. It is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.

I used the Masking Technique to get the thin rows of tulips in different colors. I also masked the windmill. The Blending Brushes take a while to get used to. I am just now feeling that the sky turned out the way I like it.

I used the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker to make the clouds appear more fluffy. The windmill was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers in Gray Granite, Crumb Cake and Balmy Blue.

Stampin’ Up!® Snowflake Wishes Thank You Fun Fold Friday Gift Card Holder

Still looking for a gift for the Holidays? Consider giving a gift card in a thank you note! This Snowflake Wishes Thank You Fun Fold Friday Gift Card Holder is a great gift for anyone who helps you out on a regular basis. For example, the young man who mows your lawn, the housekeeper, the bank teller, the mail/package delivery person, the grocery clerk- you get the idea. Everyone loves to be appreciated, especially during the holidays!

Measurements

Snowflake Wishes Fun Fold Friday Thank You Card

  • Gorgeous Grape Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inches scored at 2 1/2 and 5 1/2 inches and 2 3/4 x 4 inches.
  • Highland Heather CS: 4 x 6 inches.
  • Basic White CS: 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
  • One Wonderful Snowflake

Links to the supplies are listed at the end of this blog.

Stamping Your Own Designer Series Paper (DSP)

Start out by stamping the largest snowflake in Highland Heather Ink onto the 4 x 6 inch Highland Heather CS. Then Stamp Off once when stamping the next to the largest snowflake.

Next use the Gorgeous Grape Ink and the medium sized snowflakes to stamp in the empty spaces.

To finish this card piece, stamp in Misty Moonlight Ink using the group of tiny snowflakes. This may not look great at this point, but when it is cut up and adhered to the card it will look fantastic!

More Stamping

The next step is to stamp the front of the card. Start by using the Misty Moonlight Ink to stamp the sentiment “Thank You Snow Much” onto the 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Then Stamp Off once using the largest snowflake with Highland Heather Ink. Using the next to the largest snowflake, stamp at full strength using Highland Heather Ink.

Use the Gorgeous Grape Ink to stamp a medium sized snowflake around the edges.

Finish this card piece by stamping the group of medium snowflakes in Misty Moonlight Ink.

Use the Misty Moonlight Ink with the group of medium snowflakes to stamp around the upper left-hand corner of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. This will be the inside of the card.

Assembling the Snowflake Wishes Thank You Gift Card Holder

The first step is to cut up the DSP that you made. Cut at 2 1/4 inches and 3 1/4 inches.

Fold the Gorgeous Grape CS card base at the 5 1/2 inch score line. Then fold at the 2 1/2 inch score line. Adhere the 2 3/4 x 4 inch DSP to the left and the 2 1/4 x 4 inch DSP to the right.

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS to the inside. Then adhere the 1 x 4 inch DSP to the right-hand side of the Basic White CS.

Punch the end with the Label Me Lovely Punch to create a notch.

Turn the card front over and apply Tear & Tape Adhesive to the upper and lower edges. Tip: Use the Take Your Pick tool to peel the protective cover off.

Fold the card front to adhere the edges and make the pocket for the gift card.

Adhere the Basic White CS card front to the corresponding Gorgeous Grape CS. Lay on the front of the card base to get positioning.

Tip: Flip the card front over to see where to adhere the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finishing Touches

Add a finishing touch by applying the Wonderful Snowflake.

And of course-add Bling! The Rhinestone Basic Jewels will add some extra sparkle!

Voila! Such a wonderful way to thank those around you!

I had so much fun making the background for these thank you notes. I made 24 using different colors. To make all the penguins, I used the Stamparatus. It goes quickly that way! The “Thanks” sentiment is from the Simply Succulents stamp set.

I also used the snowflake mask and Blending Brush to add some snowflakes to the inside.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery- December 2021- Stampin’ Up!® Snowflake Wishes Thank You card

Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You. It is so important to thank those who inspire us. Those who help us out. Those who have our back.

On this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by people from all over the world! I hope you enjoy my Snowflake Wishes Thank You card and take the time to see everyone else’s inspiring creations by visiting the gallery. You can get to the gallery by selecting the “Vote For Me” button at the end of this blog.

The Thank You sentiment if from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. All of the stamped snowflakes are from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set. The Stampin’ Up! color is Pacific Point. I ended up with several packages of the Wonderful Snowflakes, so I really wanted to make a card with them.

Using the Blending Brushes

To create the background I used the Blending Brush with Pacific Point Ink on Basic White Card Stock (CS). A few tips:

  1. Gently swirl the Blending Brush on the ink pad in a circular motion.
  2. Touch your scrap paper before blending the color onto your Basic White CS.
  3. Move the Blending Brush in a circular motion with light pressure, then medium pressure as the color leaves the brush.
  4. Go slow to keep the color blending on smoothly. You will need many layers.
  5. The Blending Brushes do take some practice. My goal is to eventually have a very smooth transition of color.

The Wonderful Snowflakes are super fun! When the light hits just right you see a rainbow!

I added lots of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels for sparkle! Voila! Such a pleasant Thank You card to send off!

Please vote for my card when you visit the Gallery by selecting the “Vote For Me” button below. Thank you!

Ciao!
