Thoughtful Blooms Thank You Card Tutorial

Today’s card is one that I made using the coordinating products Thoughtful Blooms and Small Blossom Punch from the Sale-a-bration Brochure. I love the fact that you can earn this items with a qualifying order, after all who doesn’t love FREE and this is a couple of products that are soooo easy to use!

Here is the card that I’m sending out as a thank you to those who are placing orders in February with me.

Fun and colorful this card is sure to brighten anyone’s day! Here is a video tutorial sharing how I made this card and of course, the PDF also.



Have you ever wondered why I list both the Classic Ink AND the reinker in my supply lists? I always suggest that you buy them together so you’ll never have to worry about a dry ink pad or forgetting to order it before an item is retired. And of course Sale-a-bration is a great time to fill in the gaps in your color collection since you earn a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a qualifying order!

More Playful Penguins

I got started stamping with this fun set and couldn’t stop stamping with them. So here is another card for you made with these delightful birds, this time my December Thank You card.

This time I’ve teamed them up with the Crackle Paint Background Stamp to create this “icy” look.

Done in shades of blue I really like the way it turned out. And when you use your Stamparatus they are a breeze to make!

Check out how I made this card in my video

One Big Meaning

If you send a lot of Thank You cards then the One Big Meaning stamp set (18788/139420) might be a great choice for you since it is filled with a wonderful selection of fonts and sizes. I find myself reaching for it all the time and at this time of year I’ve always got thank you that need to be sent.

This first card not only uses the One Big Meaning sentiment but also the Falling Flowers stamp set (139553/139556).

And do you recognized the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper peeking out behind the flower – awesome right? And good news you can still get this paper until the end of the day today since the Holiday Catalog items on the Retirement List can be ordered while supplies last until 11:50 p.m. (MT) tonight!

And here is another wonderful card using the set and the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (144137) is peeking out from behind the vellum card stock (101856).

Check out the lovely Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon – if you haven’t seen our shimmer ribbon in person it is just lovely.

And here are a couple more Thank You cards I wanted to share with you. This first one uses the  Daisy Delight Bundle (143669) and the same Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

And this last one uses the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set (143758). and the Petal Burst Embossing Folder (144193).

Stop back by next time when I’ll be sharing my NEW 2018 Occasions Catalog organizational items with you.

grad thank you-001

I created my Thank you card once with the built in template and then decided that I wanted to try a different color combination for the outside of the card. Here is the Tangerine Tango version of the card.

grad thank you-002

And for the inside I used my daughter’s picture (yes, the butterfly is real what luck right?)

grad thank you-003and a basic thank you above where my daughter can write her note.

I dated the back of the card with the year and school so they know when the picture was taken. If they’re like me they might place it somewhere safe and then later find it and not remember right? Sound familiar – lol.

It’s Tuesday so that means NEW Digital Downloads. Check the latest out – There is a great one so that you can get ready for Father’s Day now during the 25% Off Sale!
