Good morning and happy President’s Day! If you’ve got the day off – I hope you enjoy the time to decompress! If you have to work….I’m so sorry! 🙁
My card today goes back to a fun – FREE – stamp set in the Jan-Feb 2023 Sale-a-Bration catalog, called Thanks a Bunch! In the spirit of Spring, it features…carrots! And – thanks to the amazing Stamparatus – this card has a whole BUNCH of carrots! Take a look-see:
The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!
I placed a piece of Basic White cardstock into my Stamparatus and set the large detailed carrot image from Thanks a Bunch onto the panel and picked it up with one of the Stamparatus plates.
I stamped it in Pumpkin Pie ink and then “hinge-stepped” the plate down one hinge – and stamped it again. I repeated that all the way down the panel.
I repositioned the stamp up and over a little – and repeated the process down the panel. You’ll see there’s an…odd man out! For THAT carrot – I stamped its detailed image in Blackberry Bliss ink.
I replaced the stamp with the large fill stamp on the Stamparatus plate – and stamped all the carrots in Pale Papaya. Except – of course – that one odd carrot. THAT one I stamped the large fill image in Rich Razzleberry.
I stamped the leaf image in Granny Apple Green and again in Pear Pizzaz (didn’t need the Stamparatus for this part!!) – then matted the panel on Rich Razzleberry cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.
Then I wrapped some Linen Thread around the panel a couple of times – securing it in the back with a little bit of the Stampin’ Seal.
I tied a simple bow from two lengths of Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Thanks a Bunch sentiment in Rich Razzleberry and cut it out with a Stylish Shapes label die. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the sentiment to the card front.
I added a few Crumb Cake Enamel Dot Essentials and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a Thanks a Bunch sentiment in Rich Razzleberry – and the second part in Pumpkin Pie! – on a Basic White panel. In the corner I stamped the little three-carrot image in Pumpkin Pie and added Granny Apple Green and Pear Pizzazz leaves!
I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the triple carrots and leaves on the front…
…and a little Rich Razzleberry Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! As we head into gardening season, this is such a perfect card! The Thanks a Bunch set can stamp carrots and carrots and carrots WAY faster than you can grow them!! And I got them all lined up and stamped in a row quick as a bunya (see? Carrots? Bunny??) thanks to the amazing Stamparatus. I need a Stamparatus for PLANTING!! 🙂
