I LOVE the Wishing you Well stamp set in the 2018 Stampin UP! Holiday catalog! Find it on page 35, or HERE online.
I hope YOU love the fall themed thank you cards I came up with using this stamp set!
As you can see above, I played with a few different colors, just mixing and matching these colors:
Crushed Curry, Fresh Fig, Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate.
I love this Hostess set from Stampin' Up! called Warm Hearted (pictured above at left), (pg 54 in the 2018 Holiday catalog). I used the THANKS stamp from this set in my card design. You can purchase this set (or any hostess set) when your order or party total is over $150. (Use Stampin' Rewards, a.k.a. hostess dollars, to purchase hostess sets or any product from the catalog). I stamped it with Crushed Curry ink onto the patterned paper from the Country Lane designer series paper pack (pg 43 Holiday catalog, #147804).
I also used 2 other patterns from this paper pack on my card. The striped pattern behind the oval, and the polka dot strip, are both from the Country Lane paper pack.
I die cut Very Vanilla stitched shape ovals, and stamped the "wheat" sprigs in Crushed Curry, and the flowers in Blackberry Bliss. I also stamped the bow in Blackberry Bliss. I attached the oval to a Crushed Curry Scalloped Oval die cut and added that to the card.
- Base Card: 4-1/4" x 9", score at 5-1/2"
- Striped Country Lane paper: 3"x4"
- Crushed Curry Country Lane paper: 4" x 1-1/2"
- Polka dot Country Lane paper: 4" x 1/2"
- Very Vanilla (inside) 4" x 5-1/4"
So then.. the secret weapon on this card.. I spritzed the finished card with some Gold Shimmer Paint mixed into a Stampin' Spritzer with rubbing alcohol.. it's SO PRETTY in person!! Watch the VIDEO HERE to see how to make your own shimmer mist!!
I also decided to try a horizontal version, and I actually used a sympathy sentiment from the Wishing You Well set. I added gold metallic pearls to this card. I think it turned out lovely.
Do you have a favorite version of my card idea?
