Thank You
by Michelle Bala

42

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a card that focuses on the simple, but beautiful Eucalyptus Collage Craft Die.  I combined it with the Wrapped 

Stitch Rectangles Die and the Thank You Posh Script Die. 

41

 

I made my card base 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 from kraft cardstock. I trimmed a second piece of kraft cardstock slightly larger than the card base. Secured the Wrapped Stitched Rectangles Die and die cut. Next, secure the Eucalyptus Collage Die in the center. Die cut the image.  I used Prismacolor Pencils to color the branch. I die cut the sentiment from the same kraft cardstock and used the same color pencils to add color. I adhered the top die cut panel to the card base with foam tape. Adhere the sentiment with glue. For a finishing touch I added some Bright Jewels gems.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Flower Bouquet Thank You Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a monochromatic bouquet Thank You card for today.  I have seen so many beautiful cards like this and wanted to try one with some fall colors and the spring released flower dies.  I used cream and light orange to create a late summer/early fall feeling.

39F6D54A-C8C9-44F7-841E-0BFFA4CEE436_1_201_a

Woodgrain Background:

Die cut the Wood Grain Planks, twice, from the cream color Woodgrain card stock.  Paint each plank with Ranger Vintage Collage Medium and let dry.  Then paint with Gansai Tambi Champagne Gold to create a glitter effect.  Let dry.  Glue the planks lengthwise on a side folded A2 size card base.  Make sure to stager the planks so the seams do not line up.

Flower Bouquet:

Die cut the following flowers from the light orange oar from Sunny Orange paper pack; Lavender Stems, Daisy Stems, Wildflower Stems, and Seed Stems.  I was able to arrange all dies on 1 sheet of paper and die cut it at one time to save time.  Splatter the die cuts with the Gansai Tambi Champagne Gold to add some of the same glitter to the focal point.  Let dry.  Arrange the bouquet until you get a good arrangement and tie with twine.  Add glue to the back of the twine and stem and glue 1 string and trim. Take the other end, add more glue to the back of the knot and wind the twine.  Trim an hold in place until the glue dries.

Sentiment:

Die cut the Thank You Streamlined Script die from the same light orange paper as the flowers from the Sunny Orange paper pack.

Assembly:

Cut 3 strips of clothe strips slightly smaller then the length of the card.  Fray the edges of each strip.  Glue on to the lower half of the card.  Fray and trim the clothe until it looks organic.  Glue on the bouquet of flowers to the left side of the card.  Arrange flowers and foliage and then glue some in place and leave some floating.  Glue the Thank You die cut on top of the clothe.

Thanks Balloon from a Cursive Script Circle by Jean Okimoto

P1007819

Cut Thanks Cursive Script Circle from the lime green Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.  Wiggle and pull the offcut areas away from the diecut - that's easier than vice-versa.  Cut the bottom section of the large Balloon Bunch balloon from the lime green glittered 6x6 too. Cut the yellow-green 6x6 from the Lush Green Collection with the 2-¼" Circle Basics die.  Attach the solid circle behind the Thanks Cursive Script Circle.  Attach the glittered bottom piece behind the solid circle to form a thanks balloon.

Cut the two smaller balloons from 6x6 sheets in the Berry Red Collection.  Attach the thanks balloon to the smaller balloons with foamtape.  Tape white twine behind the balloons and tie them together near the bottom.

Cut the dark green 6x6 Lush Green sheet with a portion of the 2"x7" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut the 6x6 Madras Plaid Coral and Green sheet with a portion of the 1.7" x 6.7 Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cutting precise rectangles with the Slim dies - or portions of the dies - is easier than measuring and cutting rectangles with a paper trimmer.

Cut the pale orange 6x6 from the Sunny Orange Collection with the smallest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  

P1007836

Attach the diecuts to a vertially-grained slimline card of Cream Woodgrain cardstock - use a double layer of foamtape at the top of the thanks balloon.  The Woodgrain cardstock adds texture but doesn't overwhelm the other design elements. 

Color Clear Jewels with pink and orange Sharpie or Copic Markers and attach them to the smaller balloons.  5 of them instead of my usual 3!

Special thanks to everyone who bought all of last week's BLOOMERS Card Kit from Impress - I appreciate your support!  Stamps and Memories in Hawaii ordered kits too. Hope you'll experiment with beautiful Memory Box colors and papers to create unique cards inspired by the cards.  Thanks for ordering the kits Ann and Roxy!

Thanks for visiting...see you again this weekend!

Streamlined, Delicate Slimline Thank You by Jean Okimoto

P1007430

Say thanks with Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape , a Vibrant Violet 6x6 and the new Delicate Wreath.  Add tiny blossoms from the Willow Globe die set and custom-colored Clear Jewels.  Top it off with the new Streamlined Thank You Script.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a quick washi-taped thank you.

P1007467

Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape is great for summer cards - just attach it to one of the 108 colors from our 6x6 Collections.  

P1007473

Chosing the right color for the background can be a little challenging and very sticky.  Here's a tip - attach the tape to a transparency or acetate sheet.  Or the clear poly bags that our dies and stamps are packed in.  Then just lay it over the background color choices to pick the best shade.

Attach the tape to the chosen color, then diecut it with the 2.75" x 4" Rectangle Basics die.  

Cut Delicate Wreath and Streamlined Thank You Script from the dark green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  

Cut three tiny flowers - from the Willow Globe set - from a pink/violet 6x6 in the Lush Violet Collection.  

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝"x 8-/1/2")  Color Clear Jewels with a violet Sharpie or Copic Marker.  Dry the ink and attach the gems.

P1007444

Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape is great with 6x6's from the Berry Red and Sunny Orange Collections too.  Experiment with the different papers and add custom-colored Clear Jewels for a quick card. 

Thanks for visiting - see you on Thursday!Jeansignature-3

Elegant Succulent Thank You
by Michelle Bala

31

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a card I created using Elegant Succulent Stamp Set from the newest Summer Daydreams Release.  I randomly stamped the succulents onto a piece of cardstock. I used gray ink. I colored the florals with Copic Markers in shades:

Blueish Succulent- BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, BV23; Green Succulent- G20, G21, G24, G46, BV23, RV93; Green leaves- YG23, YG25, YG17, BV25; 

Blueish Leaves- BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78; Red Branch- RV69, RV99; Background- RV91 
31

Next, I used the Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out Die and die cut the colored panel. I splattered some white paint and allowed to dry. Than I chose a piece of dark gray paper from the Earth Neutral 6x6 Paper Pack. I trimmed it to fit the card base than used the same die to cut the stitched frame. 
31

For the sentiment, I die cut the Thank You Streamlined Script Die two times. I used the Holiday Glitter Pad and a piece of cardstock I colored with the BG75.  I layered the sentiment. I assembled the card than added some clear jewels.

Hope you give it  a try! Thanks for stopping by!

Out of This World THANK YOU Card
by Sara Cook


I have a eye catching thank you card for you today using the new Grand Galaxy3D embossing folder.  This technique to create the 3D background can be used for any occasion.

4AF8578B-41B2-4321-9A5C-6A9BCB92B688

3D Background:

I highly recommend using only Memory Box water color paper for this technique.  It is the only water color paper I know that will hold up to what I did to it.  it is pretty amazing the paper did not rip or tear and stayed flat.  Spray water Memory Box watercolor paperon the paper and then lightly add Nuevo Shimmer Powders  Solar Flare, Blue Blits and Catherine wheel.  Spritz with more water and add more powder under you get areas of yellow, red, and blue.  Let dry.  

EFAF2BD9-95AC-440D-AC5A-87605F8A04C4

Ink blend with Distress Black Shoot ink, leaving some of the yellow, red, and blue areas open.  Let completely dry. Emboss with the Grand Galaxy folder   Take a sand block and sand way the ink from the raised surfaces.  For me not enough of the color would sand off.  I tried adding water with a brush to just the .planets and dab off with a paper towel.  If not enough color comes of I then sanded the wet paper to remove the ink.  The paper did not tear nor rip in this process!  This is why I recommend the Memory Box water color paper for this technique.  Let dry.  Then take a gold gel pe and color over some of the stars.  

8964D993-83AD-4C79-96D5-810D2EDF5771

Sentiment:Twiggy Thank You from a gold from the Polished Foiled paper and black card stock.  Glue the 2 die cuts together for a more depth.  

8D1D34B2-2F97-4FE8-8EF9-D20BC4889C0E

Assembly:

The card base is black 6 1/4" x 5".  The gold is the same for the sentiment 6 1/8" x 4 3/4.  The purple is from Twilight Purplecut down to 6"x43/4".  The 3D embosesed background is cut do 53/4"x41/2".  Adhere all the layers together and then adhere the sentiment.

Quick-Stick Glitter Trick by Jean Okimoto

P1007181

Adding glitter to a watercolored background and attaching detailed diecuts can take a few minutes. Here's an easy way to do both - at one time!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a simple thank you from our Summer Daydreams release.

Cut watercolor paper with the 3rd-largest Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Brush or sponge it with loose, overlapping layers of ink.  Blend some areas with splotchy, watery brushstrokes.  Distresss Oxide colors used here are squeezed lemonade, peacock feathers, twisted citron and cracked pistachio.  Set it aside to dry.

P1007155

Score white cardstock at 3-¼" and 6-¾".  Trim the cardstock to 8-½" x 7-½" - it's ¾" beyond the 6-¾" scoreline.  The 3-¼" panel folds inside to conceal the ink-blended cardstock.  The ¾" tab will be attached behind the back panel

Prep the Twiggy Thank You and Eucalyptus Collage dies by rubbing them briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the delicate pieces.  Cut the 3-½" center panel with both dies - keep them fairly close together to leave space on the short ends.  Save the skinny inside triangle for the "A" - and the oval inside the "0."

Attach Scor-Tape to the inked side of the watercolor paper - save the tape liner.  Attach the saved triangle for the A and and the oval for the O.  Place the cardstock - sticky-side down - on a nonstick surface.  Carefully attach the adhesive-covered piece behind the diecuts.  Attach the centers for the letters A and O.  Press it with the saved liner to secure the diecuts.  Brush ultrafine iridescent glitter over the remaining exposed adhesive.  Impress' Sparkle Glitter is perfect for this.

P1007194

Fold and attach the 3-¼" panel to the inside. Cut a 3-½" x 8-½" piece of white cardstock and attach it to the ¾" tab for the back of the card. Attach turquoise jewels from the Bright Jewels set.  Sounds complicated, but it's really easy and it's a process that works with all of collage dies.

Thanks for visiting- see you again next week...

Twilight Purple and Violet Madras Plaid Floral Chain Thank You Notes
by Anne Thompson

I needed some thank you notes and made a trio of them this week using Twilight Purple cardstocks, Violet Madras Plaid papers, the Floral Chain and Thank You Streamlined Script dies, and some clear Fairy Jewels.

IMG_3221-ink

materials used

IMG_3220-ink

to make these cards

  • Cover the fronts of white notecards with purple cardstocks from the Twilight Purple paper pad.
  • Die cut several of the FLORAL CHAIN from a variety of the purple cardstocks.
  • Die cut several of the FLORAL CHAIN  and THANK YOU STREAMLINED SCRIPT from a variety of the violet plaids from the Madras Plaid paper pad.
  • Stack one of the plaid floral chains on top of one of the purple cardstock floral chains offset a bit and add it to the front of the notecard with foam dimensional dots.
  • Add a separate flower cut from a cardstock chain to the center of one of the flowers with a Glue Dot.
  • Add three clear Fairy Jewels to the center of each flower.
  • Add the Thank You Streamlined Script on the lower right front of the card and three more clear Fairy Jewels. (I used a Glue Pen.)

Here's a closer look at each of the three cards.

These cards came together quickly assembly-line style once I had everything die cut.  And I still have more of everything die cut and filed in clear storage pouches (Medium Storage Pouch pack of 50 SB10020) with each die.  Did you know that Memory Box makes both clear and colored storage pouches (six colors!) and magnet sheets?  If you look at the Memory Box catalog under Storage, you will find three sizes of each!  These are what I am using now to organize all of my dies and stamp sets in little boxes by release name/date.  What kind of a storage system do you have for your dies and stamp sets?

Happy Crafting!

Simple Layered Wreath
by Michelle Bala

20

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a few CAS style cards. I used some of the newest products  from the Summer Daydreams Release.
20

I chose the Delicate Wreath Die and die cut it three times using papers from the Lush Green paper pack. I adhered the layers together than added a twine bow.  I trimmed a piece of White Wood Grain Paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and used the Double Stitch Rectangle Cutout Die to add the border. Adhere the die cut border panel to the card base. I stamped and die cut the sentiment from the new stamp/ die combo, Signature Greetings. Lastly, I scattered some clear jewels.
20

I followed the same design for this card, but I used Fresh Aqua Paper Pack and Kraft Wood Grain Paper. 

Thanks for stopping by for a peek! Hope you'll check out the newest release!
