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 Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop with this fabulous group of Demonstrators from around the world!
Each month I make & send Customer Thank You Cards for everyone who orders from my Online Store. This month I created a card with the Nature’s Harvest stamp set from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.
Start with a Blushing Bride cs card base. Cut an Early Espresso cs panel and a Shimmery White cs panel. Dry emboss the Early Espresso cs panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.
Stamp the flower image from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Memento Black ink. With a slightly damp Water Painter color the flowers with Blushing Bride ink, Early Espresso ink and Soft Succulent ink. Add Wink of Stella to the flower petals. Use the Water Painter to add water to Daffodil Delight ink (make an ink well in the lid) and gently using the Water Painter’s lid add Daffodil Delight ink splotches to the top of the stamped Shimmery White cs panel. Use a sponge dauber to add Early Espresso ink to the Shimmy White cs panel’s edges. Glue the Shimmery White cs panel to the embossed Early Espresso cs panel. Wrap the panels with Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim & Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim using the Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panels. Glue the wrapped panels to the card front.
Cut a Shimmery White cs sentiment panel. Stamp the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the sentiment panel. Use a sponge dauber to add Early Espresso ink to the Shimmy White cs sentiment panel’s edges. Add the sentiment panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom right slightly overlapping the wrapped ribbon. Add pearls and a Bee Trinket to the card front.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I used a sponge dauber to add Early Espresso ink to the inside panel’s edges. I stamped the sentiment and added am embossed Early Espresso cs strip to the inside & back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my Nature’s Harvest Thank You Blog Hop card. You can order the Nature’s Harvest stamp set and Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder in my Online Store.
