Unless you are brand new here you will know that my Wedding is fast approaching (actually, its on Saturday!!!!) and I have been busy making Thank You cards, gifts and boxes like a mad woman for weeks (and months!), but I have also been super busily working away on some really cool things that are going to be going on on my blog and my Facebook page while I’m away; including my Free On-line Workshop for August!
Seeing as when the workshop goes live I will be lying on a beach on my honeymoon, I thought I would share some of my Wedding related projects this month; thank you cards, my Wedding favours that sort of thing. While I was playing around with stamps and ink, and planning the workshop this card appeared as if by crafty magic on my desk.
The swirl from Everything Eleanor is stamped in Elegant Eggplant onto Whisper White card stock, and matted onto a card base of Elegant Eggplant too. That ‘Thank You’ sentiment is gorgeous isn’t it? It actually is part of a bigger stamp in the Me = Grateful Stamp set, the whole stamp says – Thank You for seeing me through some dark days…’ – and while that is lovely, it isn’t really appropriate for our Wedding themed card. There are two ways of stamping part of a sentiment stamp – both of which is use often – either; mask off part of the stamp with Washi tape or a Sticky note, or grab for your marker pens! Well, this sentiment is heat embossed in Gold, and while our Stampin’ Up!® inks do hold embossing powder, I grabbed my Versamark pen (unfortunately not sold by SU, but you can find it HERE) and just inked the part of the stamp I wanted.
A super quick and simple, elegant Thank You card.
