Welcome and Thank you for visiting Christy’s Stamping Spot! I’m Christy and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I’m excited to be taking part in Kylie and Bruno Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop with this fabulous group of Demonstrators from around the world!
Each month I make and send Customer Thank You Cards for everyone who orders from my Online Store. This month I created a Thank You card using the Sale-A-Bration Adorable Owls stamp set and the lovely 2022-2023 Annual Catalog Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper.
Start with a Soft Saffron cardstock card base. Cut an Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper panel. Wrap the panel with Balmy Blue/White Variegated ribbon using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ribbon’s ends to the back of the panel and then glue the wrapped panel to the card base. Punch a Basic White cardstock circle with the Decorative Circle punch. Stamp the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set (slightly curve the sentiment to match the punched circle) in Balmy Blue ink on the Basic White cardstock circle. Glue the stamped circle to the card front slightly to the right and tucked under the ribbon.
Fussy cut out flowers from the Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper. Add Wink of Stella to the flowers centers for sparkle. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals and glue to build a flower bouquet with the fussy cut flowers in the center of the card front overlapping the wrapped ribbon and sentiment circle.
Stamp the owl from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Soft Suede ink. Color the owl with Stampin’ Blends and add Wink of Stella for sparkle. Fussy cut out the colored owl with paper snips. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the owl to the card front overlapping the flower bouquet, wrapped ribbon, and sentiment circle. Add Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins around the flower bouquet for extra sparkle.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. Add a strip of Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper to the inside and back of the card. Add a fussy cut flower to the inside panel (stamp a flower from the True Beauty stamp set in Polished Pink ink on the back of the card) and the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Balmy Blue ink to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
