Elegant and quick note cards

Grateful

Today is a "two for one" special on seeing some more things to do with Stampin' Up! Note Cards.  I wanted to show both of these to you today because both use embossing folders along with our Core'dinations Cardstock

  • To create the distressed look, just run the Summer Starfruit Core'dinations Cardstock through the Big Shot using the new embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog called Pretty Print.  Then lightly sand with the Stampin' Sanding Block.  The sanding block will take some of the color off the cardstock and leave a beautiful two-toned effect.
  • Stamps are from Chalk Talk stamp set, stamped in Gumball Green and Midnight Muse.  There's a coordinating Chalk Talk Framelit to cut out the base of the main image, and I've used an XL Oval Punch for the sentimentl.
  • BUNDLE AND SAVE!  Buy the Chalk Talk stamp set and coordinating Chalk Talk Framelits and save 15%!
  • Add a couple of Silver Mini Brads in the corners of the tag for an extra little somethin'.
     

Million Thanks

Here, I've turned the Note Card on its side to create a simply elegant thank you note. 

  • This card uses the new-ish embossing folder (new in the Annual Catalog in July) called Beautifully Baroque.  Again, to get that distressed two-toned look, simply run the Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations cardstock through the Big Shot with the embossing folder, then lightly sand with the Sanding Block.
  • Love the beautiful font of the Million & One stamp set – you'll receive two images in this great set.
  • A pretty little flower accent is made using the Boho Blossoms Punch and a Black Candy Dot from the Neutrals Collection.

A Trio of Thanks

Trio of cards

I'm a sucker for sweet little 3"x3" gift cards.  They come together in a snap and are so handy for gift enclosures.  Attach one of these cute cards to a homemade jar of jam or a basket of assorted teas to let someone know how thankful you are for their kindness.

  • These little darlings are all about the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Paper!  With bold, smart colors like Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and Island Indigo, it's definitely an eye opener.
  • Paired with this terrific paper is Chalk Talk stamp set – you'll love all the greetings in this great set, and there are framelits and punches that coordinate, too!
  • Add a small Rhinestone to the heart – it's all the accessorizing you'll need!
  • Don't forget "envelope art" – so fun to have a matching image on the front.  I used Mosaic Madness stamp set to coordinate with the motif in the designer paper.
