Seasonally Scattered Thanks

Seasonally Scattered Thanks

Seasonally Scattered is a fun stamp set this year that you can use to create thank you cards, Christmas cards and Valentine’s Day cards.  You’ll find it in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog on pg. 43.  With just 3 simple stamps, this set is a must have for showcasing techniques and for doing quick & easy cards.

  • I began thinking about this card with Fall colors in mind, but I wanted something a little lighter so that I could emboss over the top of the colors.  I chose the Subtles family colors – Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron and Calypso Coral – with some added Early Espresso.
  • It didn’t photograph all that well, but I used Shimmery White Cardstock as my base to stamp on and literally dragged my stamp pad over the cardstock in an arching motion from left to right.  I started at the bottom with Wild Wasabi and moved up, letting the colors blend and overlap just a bit.  The shimmer from the cardstock shows through the colors and gives a nice added look.
  • Next I stamped “thanks” from Seasonally Scattered using my VersaMark pad, then sprinkled on Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heated it up with my Heat Tool.
  • Accents on the bottom are Venetian Crochet Trim and Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon.  The button is an Early Espresso one from the Neutrals Designer Buttons.  I pulled apart some of the Very Vanilla fibers from the Natural/Old Olive Two-Tone Trim and made an “X” through the center, adhering it to the card with a Glue Dot.

Retro Fresh Thank You

Retro Thank You

I'm having so much fun with Stampin' Up!'s Circle Mongram Stamps.  Create address labels, a stamp for the back of your handmade cards, personalize gifts and goodies and more!  They're easy to design – I've made and ordered three so far.  This one is for creating thank you cards and stamping on the envelopes as well. 

My card started with a fun sketch from one of my team members.  We have a weekly sketch challenge on our Team Facebook page, and this is the one posted for last week:

CASE of the Mondays 5-001

It's the first place I start when designing a card – I've just got to have a good sketch!   See how easy it is to just plug in your images and supplies!  

  • This layout drew me to the Retro Fresh This and That Washi Tape.  It almost looks just like it!  That built the basis for my color scheme, but I did decide to soften the look by using Pool Party cardstock and ink.  It matches and is a little softer look.
  • Next element was that I wanted to show off my  new personalized Circle Monogram Stamp.  I've already ordered three different ones – they're really addicting!  And they're so easy to create!  Just enter the item code 132852 in my online store and up pops a screen where you can design what you want in the different locations on the stamp.  Choose to create a personalized stamp for the backs of your cards, an address stamp or whatever you can think of!  I've done a "hand cancel" stamp for my precious hand-stamped cards.  I've also designed one to congratulate my team members for their achievements.
  • Gorgeous Grunge seems to be my "go to" stamp set these days when I need a little something extra on my card.  Here are all the wonderful images you get in this set.

  • Lots of Stampin' Up! circle punches made this card a snap!  My favorite corner rounder of all time is the one built into the Envelope Punch Board – two tools for the price of one!
  • A cute Naturals Button and some Linen Thread complete my quick and easy card.
