Stampin’ Up! Color Me Merry Thank You

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!

In my ongoing quest to show you guys how versatile the new Color Me Happy stamp set is – above and beyond even what you can do with it when you combine it with the Color Me Happy Project kit – I’ve made a quick and easy (and I ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie here, folks!!) thank you card with the stamp set and a little bit of the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  Take a look-see:

Since I’m betting your brain instantly told you how to make this card, you know how easy it is, right?

I did play along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week.  I went right down the middle!

Buckle up, buttercup – this is going to go fast!

I started with the cool black-and-white side of the Merry Little Christmas DSP and matted it on a panel of Pool Party card stock for the card front.  Then I wrapped a length of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I stamped the large and lovely sentiment from the Color Me Happy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut it out with an oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  When the ink was good and dry, I used my Pumpkin Pie Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends to color the sentiment.  I used the Dark Pool Party Blend to color the little flourishes.

I cut a scalloped oval with the Ovals Layering Framelits die and matted the sentiment to it with Fast Fuse.  Then I popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a short little length of Metallic Thread (you can use whatever kind – you’re not going to see it!), and tied a knot around the Crinkled Seam Binding to the left of the sentiment.  That helped to make my faux-bow look a lot less faux!

I tied a bow with more of the Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding and adhered it with a Glue Dot – right over the spot where I tied the Metallic Thread knot.  Then I added some Black Rhinestone Jewels to the sentiment and the card was done!

For the inside, I used the Leaf Punch to cut out a leaf (to coordinate with the front DSP) in the corner of a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done! 🙂

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a piece of Black and White Pick a Pattern Washi Tape across the front – I colored the little dots with my Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend (just hard to see in the picture!)…

..and I gave the envelope a little more of the leafy Merry Little Christmas DSP.

Et Voila!  So many ways to use the Color Me Happy stamp set – dress it up or dress it down!  And – even though “Christmas” is in the name of the Merry Little Christas DSP – its got so much versatility with the color scheme (it’s Old Olive-and-white on the other side!) and the patterns that are kind of season-neutral.  Hope you like!

  1. :I do love the vibrant look to this, and the fact that it came together so fast really makes it a winner! 🙂

  2. and, of course, now I want THAT stamp set. There just is no end to your tempting us…lol! Love what you did with the Thank You. The DSP is a great backdrop. Never though of using those colors together, but I will in the future! TFS.

    • You should get it – and the Project Kit, too!! I “discovered” the color combo by making the cards in the Color Me Happy Project Kit! Thanks so much, Karen! 🙂

  3. Very pretty card Mary! Love the colors and the clean design! Beautiful bow too! 🙂

  4. Oh, so pretty! Love your colors and your blending is, well, perfect. I didn’t want to say perfect, but it is. Just trying to figure out why SU made b/w leaves for a Christmas DSP? Pretty though, just not “Christmasy”, and I LIKE Christmasy for Christmas. ‘Course, I KNOW this isn’t a Christmas card, just wondering aloud. AmI rambling???

    • Thanks so much, Julie! I actually think they did that on purpose – makes the DSP much more versatile than a straight up Christmas pattern!! 🙂

  5. Love this colour combo! X

  6. Ellie Peckler

    Mary, your card is so pretty and cheerful. Liking the PeekabooPeach and Pool Party combo. I will use your design for sure! – Ellie

  7. Susan K

    This one might actually be “et viola” for me and I surely do like! Nice that the DSP could be any pattern. TFS.

  8. So pretty! Love how easy it is to put together! Thanks for playing along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!
