Heartfelt Thank You!

I was cleaning my "craft" room last night when I ran across and old Stampin' Techniques booklet (rev 6/05). In the booklet it was showing the technique Two-Step stamping and Repetition and I liked the layout of the card. So I changed the color combo and the stamp set. Since I'm always running out of Thank you cards I chose the Heartfelt Thanks Set....which I haven't used in a long time!

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks
Paper: Groovy Guava, Purely pomegranate and Soft Sky
Ink: Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate and Basic Black
Accessories: 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 Square Punches, DS Soft Sky Ribbon.

Thanks for looking and thanks for all your comments! They really mean a lot!

Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. Here is a card I made using the Boho West color combos in the SSC (Sping/summer Catolog). I love Pinks and browns together. I used my favorite stamp set Priceless. I always reach for this set. I also used the masking technique...which I love doing with this set.

I started with a base of Chocolate Chip CS and sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip Ink. I added some DS Pomegranate Ribbon to the top of the card. I cut and sponged the Regal Rose CS and Purely Pomegranate CS and matted them on each other. I also distressed the edges of the Regal Rose CS. I then cut out my longer pieces of Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. I stamped the butterflies in Pomegranate and the flower in Regal Rose. Then I stamped them on sticky notes and cut them out and covered the images. I stamped the swirls in Chocolate chip over the covered images. I then stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip onto Very Vanilla and punched it out with my Lg. Oval Punch and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Hope you like it! All supplies used are Stampin' Up!

Sorry for the crooked picture...

Okay...Hi! Didn't realize it had been so long since I posted! I have been trying to get caught up on getting my DDSS (demo secret sister) her cards and packages. Since this month is reveal month, I will post the cards I've been working. Now you won't get to see all of them...just a couple...don't want to ruin the surprise!

This one is my favorite! For some reason, I have a hard time with 3x3 cards. So I used the sketch from the Stampin' Success (SU! demo magazine). It's made for a regular sized card...but oh well! And that's what they are there for right?!

Stamps: Holiday Blitz and Fundamental Phrases
Paper: Blue Bayou Textured, River Rock, Purely Pomegranate, Mellow Moss and Very Vanilla
Ink: Mellow Moss and Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Blue Bayou DS Ribbon (stitching removed); 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/4" and Scallop Circle Punches (what can I say, I love my punches).

This one not one of my favorites! (Sorry for the crooked picture) I used the Three for you punch box and man do I have a hard time with it! Don't know why either! Maybe I'll try this same layout, but with different colors. Who knows

Stamps: Three for you Punch Box
Paper: Purely Pomegranate Textured, More mustard, River Rock and Very Vanilla
Ink: Mellow Moss, More Mustard, Always Artichoke and Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: More Mustard 1/4" grosgrain, Always artichoke brads and Punch Box (same as listed above).

Simple, but I like it! I haven't done this very much...where I make the punched shapes/images the focal point. But I like how it turned out. I really wish I had a program to make my own water mark though....I think my copyright info...kind of throws things off a bit. Anyways...

Stamps: It's all Good and Fundamental Phrases
Paper: Purely Pomegranate Textured, So Saffron, Not Quite Navy, Mellow Moss and Very Vanilla
Ink: Purely Pomegranate and Basic Black
Accessories: Moss gingham Ribbon

Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoy everything. I need to make invitations, thank you cards and just some misc. cards (getting stocked up), so hopefully I'll be posting some of those. :) Have to get some laundry done first!
