Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! Hope your week is going well! I appreciate all the kind e-mails and well-wishes I’ve gotten these past couple of days as I’ve dealt with my hives. They seem to be on the mend – still look pretty awful, but the medicine I’ve been taking seems to have finally gotten the itching under control! 🙂
I made a little thank you card for you today – borrowing some ideas from the catalog. No – I’m not ashamed to admit it – those SU! designers are awesome and the catalog is a super place to go to get design inspiration!
I used the host-exclusive stamp set called Seasoned With Kindness along with a little dab of Nature’s Poem DSP. Take a look-see:
I started with a Shaded Spruce card base and used the fun foliage image from Seasoned with Kindness to stamp all over the front with Shaded Spruce ink.
Then I took two pieces of Grapefruit Grove paper from the Nature’s Poem DSP and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue. Over top of those, I added a couple of lengths of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.
For the art piece, I stamped the foliage in Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce directly to the Whisper White panel. I used Shaded Spruce for the outline images and Granny Apple Green (full strength on the left-side leaves and stamped off once on the right-side.) Then, on a scrap of Gray Granite card stock, I stamped the two-step pot images in Gray Granite and fussy cut each pot.
I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around each pot, securing it in the back with a Glue Dot. Then I popped the pots over the plants with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I tied three tiny Linen Thread bows and added them with a dab of Liquid Glue.
Finally, for the tag, I stamped the Seasoned With Kindness image in Grapefruit Grove on Whisper Whtie and fussy cut it. I used my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker to add some faux stitches to the tag – and to the art panel. I tucked the tag under the Linen Thread bow with a little more Glue. Then I popped the whole panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. And that was it for the card front.
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Seasoned With Kindness in Grapefruit Grove on a Whisper White panel. Next to it, I added a flower – stamping the outline in Shaded Spruce and the fill in stamped-off-once Grapefruit Grove and stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green. Then I added more faux stitches in Shaded Spruce.
I adhered the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and then into the card base with Liquid Glue and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower on the front…
…and a bunch of foliage in Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Isn’t this Seasoned With Kindness such a pretty set?? I really love the greenery and the cute little pots! Hope you like!
